Everyone in society is a victim where rare and abnormal crimes are allow to destroy the trust between generations to the point that old men are no longer even allow to be in a park near playing children on the assumption that they are likely to be pedophiles.
A woman in New York sat on a park bench and got fine for doing so as she did not had a child along with her to be allow in that area of the park.
An old couple wish to do a tour of a child science museum in Florida and was turn away because they did not have a child along with them and so on we go.
I understand what you are saying and if there was such overreaction, it was wrong. What does that have to do with this specific case? Did you read the grand jury report? There were many, very similar reports. The conclusion that this guy was preying on children over a period of years was easy to realize.
Can't we react appropriately in this case without such fear based actions as you mention?
