(New York Post) — Parents, it’s time to panic: Kids who venture outside to play Pokémon Go are going to end up in the clutches of sex offenders, unless we do something pointless, political and pathetic.
We must fearmonger!
Gov. Cuomo and two other politicians bent on scaring their constituents, Sen. Jeff Klein (D-Bronx) and Sen. Diane Savino (D-SI), are doing just that: Cuomo announced Monday he’s banning paroled sex offenders from playing Pokémon Go, and last week Klein and Savino held a press conference announcing their intention to pass legislation banning all sex offenders from playing Pokémon Go (and other games like it) and requiring these games to eliminate any Pokémon within 100 feet of residences of registered sex offenders.
These politicians are creating a problem out of thin air and then pretending to solve it.
