Pedophiles Will Soon Be Forbidden From Serving Ice Cream

Whenever I hear the sound of an ice cream truck rolling down the street, I think, Wow, if I were a pedophile, driving an ice cream truck would be a genius way for me to get in with the kiddies! and it seems lawmakers are having similar thoughts. Last summer, a convicted sex predator was found to be driving an ice cream truck in San Bernardino County, CA. Now, they’re planning to draft an ordinance that would prevent that from happening, and similar laws are in the works in Massachusetts and New York. Rapid City, SD will require ice cream vendors to undergo criminal background checks. The ACLU has warned groups against going overboard in their prosecution of sex offenders, but shouldn’t little kids be able to get ice cream without first getting groped? [AHN]
