I have real low sympathy for sex offenders, but that article reads like so much poutrage.

Shouldn't the business notice the ever present RV?

Pretty much. It's like people are outraged simply because these ex-cons are allowed to live anywhere.

Well, you can't just have them wandering the streets where nobody can track them, and you can't have them living near normal people -- I guess the only alternative is to create some kind of sex offender colony. Like a camp of some sort, a place where you can concentrate the sex offender population.

That sounds like an interesting solution to the sex offender problem. We just need to get someone to finalize the details.

Money to be milked from this situation = solemn duty.
No money = Not our responsibility.

I see what you did there, and 6/10 for subtly, but the irony is that you're referring to something that actually exists.

In Florida, due to the registration laws, many offenders found that there was literally no where in Miami Dade county where they could live. This lead to many probation agents literally recommending they go live under a particular overpass.

Between 2006 and 2010, under the Julia Tuttle Causeway (aka "Bookville") there were around a hundred or more such offenders living there.

Similarly, Miracle Park - in Pahokee - is literally a residential camp for sex offenders (though one that was created willingly by a religious ministry)

It might be advantageous to set up a system whereby they work in exchange for increased freedom. Never enough to actually get out of the proposed camp, of course.

Perhaps there, he'll get what he told us he wants -- just to be left alone.

Well, he had that until you showed up.

Sounds good. The question would be, do we find an island? or pick a state that we're better off without and fence it in.

/Texas or Arizona would be good, we can even toss in the Pedo's with all the ignorant bigot's and racists already there.

Heck yeah! It'd be great to have them out of the general population. Probably we could even transport them there cheaply... the government has been subsidizing Amtrak for years, we may as well use it for something. It'd be nice to have a final solution for this problem.

But then couldn't they just breed new victims?

Putting every tomcat pissing-in-an-alley, dick-waving streaker, and hairy-chested man showering-with-the-blinds-open on the sex offender list has diluted its value to pretty much nothing.

You can't tell whether the person is a serial rapist or was breast feeding in public.

Ah ah ahh, isolating people with a similar hobby together allows them to share stories, a knowledge base and skill sets to better achieve their goals. Also, they may decide to compete with one another. I believe there was a prison group therapy program for pedophiles in Canada that learned this lesson the [ahem] hard way.

There's no outrage like manufactured outrage

I support this plan to push sex offenders as far away from society as possible. In fact I would volunteer to pilot the first mars transport.

/more than one way to increase NASA funding

I have no sympathy for sex offenders either, but who the fark gives a news outlet the right to roll up to a guy doing nothing illegal and start asking him questions about his conviction from almost 30 years ago, and then post the story?

They couldn't have asked the troopers first if it was illegal and leave it at that?

Well, the right is at the very least enshrined by the First Amendment. The man is in a public space, over which he has no dominion. He has no right to exclude people from the parking lot around his trailer, though he certainly was under no obligation to talk to them.

That doesn't mean it is the right thing to do, but it's well within their rights.

No, that article reads like a "torches and pitchforks" article. "It's not enough that sex offenders are treated worse than murderers - we must hound them from every single square inch of earth, for they are unclean and not fit to live anywhere! Any time we find a legal living situation, we must generate outrage and try to have it made illegal."

What about the evil child pornographers who sent a sexy picture to their high school boyfriend. Why, we need to make sure that both of them are never able to live near a school.

Uh, yeah, about that... The problem being that there are a myriad of offenses that can get you labeled as a sex offender that have absolutely nothing to do with kiddie diddling (consensual or otherwise).

Also, in all but one or two states, the courts have held that the police have no affirmative duty to save your ass. So if your daughter is raped and murdered in front of a cop, and he sees it, and he just decides to walk away, well that's A-OK. Your daughter will be dead and you can't sue anyone.

That'll teach her to come home on time.

No that would actually require research on their part. Now they can just jump up and down and manufacture that there is a problem.

I wish there was a way that this guy could actually sue the news organization. Maybe about 10 million would get him off of the parking lot and send a message to journalist, you need to go find real stories. Trying to make news where there is no news is a FOX News job.

27 years on the sex offender registry? I guess that's a life sentence.
