Neighborhood Reacts To Inmate Release

February 21, 2012, 10:42 PM by Kelly Bartnick

Neighborhood Reacts To Inmate Release
SIOUX FALLS, SD - Ed Morris has a history of sex crimes against children and people with developmental disabilities. He's told authorities he plans to live in Sioux Falls, starting at the Union Gospel Mission, when released. A neighbor living in the area says that bothers her.

"It's within a school, there's a park across the street. We have the Banquet there," LuAnn Pfeifle said. 

Pfeifle lives just two blocks away.

"A lot of these families are older. And there's a lot of people who have kids here too. And I think spreading the word as legally as possible is something that should be done," Pfeifle said. 

Pfeifle believes Morris should live somewhere other than The Union Gospel Mission because of his likelihood to reoffend. 

"There's a lot of needy people in this area. And I honestly believe that if he's staying at the Mission, he should be on 24-hour watch," Pfeifle said. 

But police say they will not do that. Morris is a registered sex offender.  So, he must meet the registration requirements. Pfeifle says even with those regulations, she still has questions.

"Was he rehabilitated? Is he employable? Is he educated? That's my question," she said.

Pfeifle does plan to call her neighbors so they pay extra attention to those walking through the neighborhood.
