BUS DANGER: Stop Across From Sex Offender’s Home

The city of Rose Hill, near Oskaloosa, needs a new bus stop and some residents say city leaders couldn’t have chosen a worse spot.

“Iowa’s had all kinds of problem with sex offenders lately but yet Rose Hill wants to put a bus stop right across the street from them,” says resident Jay Mitchell.

City leaders this week agreed to put up the community’s only school bus stop right across the street from level three sex offender Joey Keen’s house. Mayor Kyle Morgan says, he can see why some parents would be upset by this.

“Oh I can see where they would be. Yeah. Yeah. Mine are grown up and gone so like I said it’s not affecting me none,” Morgan says. When asked if he thought it was a good idea to put a school bus across the street from a convicted pedophiles house, the mayor said, “No, not really but I don’t know what to say and do about it. It’s already happening.”

About 15 minutes after the interview, the mayor came back and said he misunderstood the resolution and that it had nothing to do with a bus stop. However, the resolution clearly says “Bus stop.” The mayor said that is in case Keen ever decides to move out, but, again, that’s not what the resolution says.

The superintendent of Oskaloosa schools says this is the first he is hearing of the plan. He adds, he will not allow his districts’ school buses to pick up children in front of a registered sex offenders house.
