I fully realize there are registered “sex offenders” out there who have been imprisoned and put on the sex offender list for crimes as hideous as banging their 15 year old girlfriend at the ripe old age of 18. But maggots who diddle kids or who think sticking their tool into an unwilling participant is somehow acceptable should not be living in homes close to civilization.
So pardon me if my sympathy meter pegs in the negatives.
Thousands of convicted sex offenders are reporting to police that they are homeless, raising concerns that their lack of a permanent address could make them difficult to track, a USA TODAY analysis shows.
Ya know what would make them easy to track? A shallow grave or a prison cell.
Sex offenders, who are required to register with police and often barred by law from living near places where children gather, list addresses such as a tent, “near a bike path,” “behind a cemetery” or “woods behind Wal-Mart.”
Too bad “bottom of a lake with a cement collar” is not on the list.
In Boston, nearly two-thirds of 136 high-risk sex offenders lack permanent addresses. In New York City, more than 100 registered at two homeless shelters. In Miami last month, 22 reported living under the Julia Tuttle Causeway that links the city to Miami Beach.
“People should be concerned about this,” says Jill Levenson, sex-crimes policy analyst at Lynn University in Boca Raton, Fla. She says homeless sex offenders are more likely to commit another crime.
Then why is it that we don’t imprison these repugnant vermin for life, or better yet, improve the look of our public parks by turning them into fertilizer?
“Residency restrictions are the linchpin for causing homelessness among sex offenders,” says Frances Breyne of the Kansas Department of Corrections.
Yeah, that’s why we should allow them to live in close proximity to a plethora of potential victims. Because situations such as this are much more preferable to a kiddie diddler living in a cardboard box.
I ask again… why are we letting these sub-human hemorrhoids back out into society?
