MO- SNAP: Prosecutor & schools should say where predator worked
We are grateful that Donald Ingerson has been charged with child sex crimes and that Ferguson-Florissant school officials admit he worked there. But it’s time that the St. Louis County prosecutor, and other school districts, disclose where else this admitted child predator worked.
Parents, neighbors, and employers need more information, not less, about admitted sex offenders. Keeping Ingerson’s work history hidden only helps wrongdoers.
If families learn what other schools Ingerson was at, they’re more apt to reach out to friends, relatives and classmates, asking that crucial question: “Did he hurt you too?” That simple question can lead to considerable healing. It can also prevent suicide. It can help bring fractured families together. And it can help law enforcement in other jurisdictions investigate or build strong cases against Ingerson.
No matter what Ingerson’s former employers do or don’t do, for the sake of healing and prevention, Bob McCulloch should share more about Ingerson’s past with the public.
