What's weird is when I first started seeing the Momo image crop up, it reminded me of an image / picture / illustration I remember seeing when I was young, I think from a weird/horror story book or something, akin to like R.L. Stein books more recently.

Petition to prohibit unaccompanied adults from playgrounds gains traction
Algra, a Pacific Beach mother of two, kept finding various hazards in parks, playgrounds and nature exploration areas where she took her children. There were open fires, she said, makeshift homeless camps and discarded condoms.

She started researching possible solutions and crafting an ordinance when, in December, her 3-year-old son was scratched by a discarded hypodermic needle at Liberty Station Park.
“I want to be clear: this is not a homeless issue; this is about children’s safety,”
said Algra, right after describing conditions caused by homelessness.

I've run out of patience for people acting as if their being annoyed with the homeless is somehow an issue of importance equal to or worse than homelessness itself. Whatever mental gymnastics this woman has to go through to avoid dealing with this as a homeless issue would tie nadia comanichi into pretzels.

I'm also ticked because just last night my wife and I took a lovely walk through a park and hung around the playground equipment for a moment, and why shouldn't we?

I'm tired of indulging scaredy cat mothers in most areas. I'm ready to support anything that makes them mad. Pay homeless people a dollar to talk to their kids. Replace regular playgrounds with thunderdome. Anything.

Although the specifics of the ordinance need to be worked out, she said she expects common sense policing to be used so, for instance, a grandparent won’t be arrested for sitting and reading a book.

“I like to think it could be used wisely where there’s a clear and present danger,” she said. “I’m not trying to create criminality.”
Oh, bullshit.
Algra said she doesn’t have a plan or timeline for what happens next to her petition. She hopes some city council members support the idea and she wants to gather more signatures to prove this isn’t just a few angry people on social media.

“I’ve always loved San Diego and don’t want to be bashing it,” she said. “It’s a dream for my family to live here…. I don’t assign blame to the city or even the person who left that needle, but I need people to understand it is not a bad thing to help kids.”
There's a grain of truth there -- no, it is NOT a bad thing to "help kids" -- except, y'know, with people like this, the whole "we must help De Chillun" thing has the undertone "Of course, once they become adults they cease to matter, so fuck 'em." Just the opposite side of the anti-choice coin "We care deeply about the fetus when it's still inside the incubator-woman, but once the kid's born he's on his own." You only matter up to a certain point.

But you are, Blanche! You are creating criminality! I will never get people like this. They create a law that says "no unaccompanied adults in playgrounds" and then they say, "oh, but it doesn't criminalize xyz" WHEN IT VERY CLEARLY DOES.

I can see this shit getting traction on the "For the Children" ticket.

I have a personal stake in this in that my shortest walk to the local grocery goes straight across a local playground. If I can't go through the playground, it adds three blocks to my route.

Are horses allowed through playgrounds up there? What about moose?

I assume travelling by horse or moose to be a thing in the great white north.

You only take the moose when you are going to the Ice Dancing Festival. Jeez, some people have no culture.

Just as with the 'bad apple' thing to handwave away police misconduct, I am ready to jail anyone who describes themselves as a 'mama bear'. Mama bears are considered dangerous because they will kill innocent people because they just kill anything that comes near their cubs regardless of whether the threat is real or imagined. We have to relocate problem bears or put them down. I'm kinda okay with doing that with problem moms.
