Our children are just not safe from pedophiles, perverts and creeps that lurk around and prey on children. Unfortunately they don’t glow in the dark and have a bubble hanging over them during the day so people would know there’s a predator in the midst. There’s a special place for people like this. The volleyball coach betrayed the trust of the young girls at an Oak Lawn High School by getting his jollys by recording the girls changing in the locker room. This is an area where the girls are supposed to feel safe and they were not. Losing his job is not enough let’s hope this creep gets what he deserves, goes to jail and can never be within 5 inches of any child ever again.
