The dangers of the left’s “bleeding heart naivete” are on full display in the case of Luis Olivo.
Any sane society would have properly taken care of Olivo back in October when, according to the New York Post, he was allegedly caught on camera sexually abusing a 3-year-old boy in a Queens laundromat.
But according to the progressive left, the safety of children is a non-issue when it comes to a pervert’s “civil rights”.
The Post reports:
The Bronx Freedom Fund posted $2,000 bail for Luis Olivo, 63, following his Oct. 19 arrest over an incident in a Woodhaven laundromat where he was sitting in front of a table spread with candy, according to the criminal complaint filed against him.
Surveillance video allegedly shows Olivo — whose last known address was an Ozone Park homeless shelter — talking to a 3-year-old boy and passing a balloon back and forth before grabbing the tot’s head and shoving it into his crotch.
It’s insane enough that Olivo was only charged with endangering the welfare of a child, a misdemeanor. It is simply mindboggling, however, that the Bronx Freedom Fund, whose mission is to effect criminal justice reform by helping low-income people in the borough with bail money, thought a man caught on camera assaulting a child should be back out on the streets.
According to the Bronx Freedom Fund’s website, 96 percent of their clients “return for all their court dates, despite not having any of their own money on the line.”
Olivo, however, was not one of those 96 percent.
He was scheduled to return to court on November 8 but didn’t turn up. That is, until December 1, when he was caught groping an eight-year-old girl inside the Unique Shopping Mall in Jamaica, Queens.
The Post continues:
An eyewitness told cops that he saw Olivo stick his hand under the girl’s skirt and grope her, according to court papers.
The girl also said that Olivo took her hand and put it on his crotch under his jacket “so that no one would see” and “repeatedly tried to kiss her,” according to court papers.
This is absolutely heinous!!
In a statement to The Post, the mother of the little boy in the laundromat “broke down in tears” when she learned of Olivo’s offense.
“My baby is only three, maybe he’ll forget. But the 8-year-old will always remember what happened to her,” she said.
The Post also reports that Olivo had been arrested back in 2012 for first-degree sexual abuse of another eight-year-old girl, yet he still was able to find his way back onto the streets:
Meanwhile, records show that Olivo was also busted in a 2012 incident in which authorities said he put an 8-year-old girl’s hand “on top of his pants and against his erect penis” while giving her a free, sidewalk blood-pressure test with her granny in Woodhaven.
Although he was charged with first-degree sexual abuse, Olivo plea-bargained to endangering the welfare of a child and was sentenced to 60 days in jail and three years’ probation.
The move kept him from having to register as a sex offender because of endangering the welfare of a child isn’t considered a sex crime under state law.
It’s unclear if the Bronx Freedom Fund was aware of that case before bailing out Olivo.
“When are groups like the Freedom Fund going to start worrying about the victims?” an anonymous Queens detective said in a statement to The Post. “Because of their actions, a little girl and her family have been victimized and traumatized unnecessarily.”
“These liberal groups have no idea how traumatic sex crimes are to the victims, especially young children,” a retired supervisor of sex crimes investigations told the outlet. “They talk about giving criminals second chances. Well, these two children won’t get a second chance.”
There should be no such thing as a “repeat sex offender.” There should only be a six-foot ditch and a pine box.
God may forgive, but it is society’s job to eradicate predators. It’s clear that America is failing to protect its children—whether unborn or not.
