Columbus,FBI, Sexual Offenders and Predators
ChristopherColumbus was an Italian explorer, navigator and colonizer. He isremembered by most people as a brave explorer who beat terrible oddsto complete four voyages across the Atlantic Ocean (America, 2015).His legacy of discovering the new world and proving that the earthwas round lives to date with the second Monday of October being setaside to celebrate his life. His loyalty to his patrons and the Kingis also admirable. However, despite these admirable qualities,Columbus was a monster as proved by many of his actions during thesails.
Likemany other explorers, Columbus came across many indigenous peoplethroughout his quest for gold and riches. He and his team treatedthese natives, they as obstacles to their mission rather thanfacilitators (America, 2015). He subjected the natives to extremebrutality and violence when they refused to give them gold. He wasonly after riches and pleasing the queen that he forgot the value ofother people. Furthermore, he took advantage of his advanced weaponryto mistreat the natives and kill a huge number of them. He alsoenacted policies of forced labor, forcing the natives to work for him(America, 2015). Fame and approval from the King mattered the most tohim that he got them at the expense of the lives of other humans.

Accordingto FBI (2015), Jason Derek Brown murdered Robert Keith Palamares at4915 E. Ray road who was transporting deposits for the AMC Ahwatukee24 movie theater. Jason then stole $56000 and fled using a bicycle.The authorities recovered the bicycle where they found hisfingerprints linking him to the murder. He therefore fled toHenderson, Las Vegas and finally California. He then crossed theMexican border and has never been seen
RaymondAbbott-Baerga wanted for escaping from a maximum security detentionfacility while awaiting sentencing on firearms smuggling charges(USMarshals, 2015).

Twosex offenders/predators were found within 1 mile radius of 6137 BlueGrass Cir Lake worth, Fl 33463. These are Statzer Cecil G. foundwithin a 0.3 miles and Gleason Raymond P. found 0.7 miles away. Theclosest sex offender lives 0.3 miles away and his name is StatzerCecil G. He is free and no longer under confinement or anysupervision whatsoever. Though required to register as per theFlorida law, there are no sanctions imposed on him (FDLE, 2015).
Itshocks me a lot to know that a sex offender is living in theneighborhood. Furthermore, he is not under any supervision ormonitoring by the authorities, meaning that he can roam the countryand find another victim to assault sexually. This makes me see doubtthe safety of the neighborhood and challenges me to be more cautiousespecially at night. The FDLE is to some extent a violation of thesex offenders/predators privacy by making their crimes known to thepublic. However, these violations of privacy are for the greater goodof the public in that they take caution to avoid being victims ofsexual assault. It also acts as a deterrent to other sexual offendersfor fear of appearing in the list of shame of sexualoffenders/predators. This helps reduce the sexual offense cases.
