An angry father from Arkansas decided to make a public statement when he erected a sign that accused his 16-year-old daughter’s 21-year-old boyfriend of being a “child molester.”
Shelton Kitchens was angry when he found out his teenage daughter was dating a man five years older than her.
In an interview with WREG-TV, Kitchens said he decided to put the sign up to make the community aware of the man’s actions.
“Danger! Child molester lives in first house on the right!” states the sign.
“I want awareness put to other parents so they don’t have to go through what I’ve gone through the last few days,” the father said.
He said it all happened when the man lured his daughter with “puppies.” The next time he saw her, she was full of hickies.
“I find my daughter like she’s almost eaten alive. It’s sickening when you raise her shirt and look at it. Hickeys all over,” he continued.
Local law enforcement said there was nothing he could do as the age of consent in Arkansas is 16.
Some locals weren’t sympathetic with Kitchens and said the only person he should be mad at is his daughter.
“The only thing he can really do is be mad at his daughter,” one man interviewed said. “He can’t be mad at that guy.”
Still, we believe his anger is justified as he is only trying to protect his daughter from someone that is using his age to manipulate her for sexual favors.
