Only In America

...can someone like this be a victim:
"Bob Levan bought season passes to Six Flags Great America for his daughters and their best friend, but he is worried he won't be able to ride the roller coasters with them because he is a convicted sex offender"
And no, this isn't a case of accidentally brushing up against a female co-worker:
"Levan was convicted of molesting an 8-year-old relative when he was 16. He served a brief jail sentence and underwent treatment in a mental health facility"

And the cherry on top?

"Andrea D. Lyon, president of the Illinois Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, complained that the language sends the message that sex offenders are social outcasts despite whatever steps they may have taken to rehabilitate themselves."

My God, think we've taken the "I'm OK, You're OK" culture a bit too far?
