OH: More than 70 sex offenders are registered to vote at Cleveland schools

While registered sex offenders in the state of Ohio are prohibited from living with 1,000 feet of a school or daycare facility, they are not prohibited from actually entering schools.

A News 5 investigation revealed that at least 77 Cleveland sex offenders are registered to vote in the city’s elementary and high schools.  Full Article

    “It just takes a second for something to happen,” Natale said. “And even it if doesn’t happen at the school it could be something where you’re triggering that mechanism in their brain, where they’re going to leave and commit some subsequent act that could harm a child.”

    A quote from a county prosecutor saying what will happen if a registered person sets foot on a school property to vote. The reporter states the schools are closed for voting.

    LOL, …that is why registered citizens go to the polling place, to troll for kids to attack with all the adults around…and if there are no kids around without any adults around, then they all immediately go out and look for kids to attack…

    • Easy answer....

      Everyone votes by mail! Solves the issue.

      Your illegitimate concern does not constitute a Constitutional right problem for me in my effort to exercise my right to vote…….

      BTW Megan, your news station bio says you like the stories about those who stand up and speak up for others……why don’t you learn the facts then where there are attys who are doing just that so the misinformed can become informed on matters like this…..

    Tell me what else you see in your crystal ball!

    Natalie has obviously been drinking too much John Walsh Koolaid.

    “While registered sex offenders in the state of Ohio are prohibited from living with 1,000 feet of a school or daycare facility, they are not prohibited from actually entering schools.”

    Is there any clearer proof that residency restrictions are all about property values and have nothing to do with so-called child safety?

    You know this is just what they said about blacks in the south (and the North, read Native Son, it could have been a story about a sex offender today), that as soon as they saw a white woman, they go crazy. Now it is former sex convicts and children. People without choice or knowlege of right or wrong, needing to be brought to heel. Again I must state my case. We are the new subhuman race in the mind of the dominant culture. Move over people of color, make room in the back of the bus — the very back, so you don’t have to be associated with us.

    A list of other some things that can happen in a second on a campus:

    Car crash
    Shooting
    Explosion
    Spontaneous combustion
    Suicide
    Murder
    Stabbing
    Student on student rape
    Bullying
    Frost bite (who knows when the freakishly intense ice storm will appear creating an area where the temperature is 0 or below just long enough to cause anyone with exposed skin to suffer from frost bite)
    Incineration (via a sudden fire storm)
    Decapitation

    Point being it is illogical to continually worry about occurrences that are extremely unlikely to happen.

    • Punished For Life

      The worst thing any child needs to worry about if I am required to go on any campus to vote is:
      They may break their arm when they slip and fall in my puke. Due to all of these pitiful laws that keep popping up around this country (America), make me want to vomit.

      Actually, every instance you mentioned above DID happen, most likely several times, that have resulted in children deaths, medical casualtes, or trauma. Add that to the times a registered sex offender came onto campus while voting who even approached a child to solicit him or her for sex, and you get the same answer, as the additive principle states: a + 0 = a. Yes, zero times has a registerd sex offender been even charged for a sex offense while voting. (But watch out for Teacher.)

    Another attempt a grabbing ratings by this pathetic TV station. After all, November is a ratings sweeps month. Morons!

  7. Les Mis Life

    Got to love a media that denies that a single non-citizen votes, but paints the picture that these citizens are going to go on an ‘offender-bender’ if allowed in a school to vote.

    Instead of posting a grievance about the media here, how about posting it to the author of the article. I did, and this is the only way I can see a change. Let’s start educating the media with facts. I see some have given Mike R. a hard time because he copies and pastes, but here is the thing, most of the facts that he presented are saved to my phone. So when an article comes to light that is factually incorrect, I have ammunition (facts) that I can send to an author of an article that is not educated. The only way we can help is to educate the public through the media. Let’s start educating and quit bitching. The author of this article has an email address posted for a reason. Let’s start educating the media.

      I did that with an author in Washington. He responded back and saw the value of getting a registrant’s perspective. I gave him mine, that easy. We have to start talking to them to lessen the fear and misunderstanding. It wouldn’t hurt to get a deeper understanding of were they are coming from. It is a way to get around the facebook plug in, also.
      An author in San Diego just never responded back to me. I was courteous and to the point. So what, maybe the reality that a registrant acted outside her boxed perception of what we are supposed to be made her speechless.
