Parents Angry Police Chief Brought Sex Offender to School

April 09, 2012  | 

The Bairoil (Wyo.) Police chief is coming under fire for escorting a maintenance worker who is also a registered sex offender to the school to make repairs to the kitchen sink.

The repairs were done during school hours, but no children were present where the plumber was working. Some parents and a teacher want Scott fired, reports the Wyoming Tribune.

State law prohibits sex offenders from coming within 1,000 feet of a school without written permission from the school. The town, however, has had a problem finding qualified maintenance workers.

Having been involved in the registry of sex offenders since the law came into being in my state, What are these people thinking?!? They need work done on the school and they want to fire a Chief for escorting this offender to do the work! He could have let the school's request be their permission and not gotten involved. Instead, he tries to lessen concern by being with the offender and they want his job? Idiots!!

Dan - well said. The chief goes out of his way to ensure the safety of the children and bozos want to fire him? No good deed goes unpunished.
