AZ: Palm Valley Phase I residents vote to ban some sex offenders

Level II and III sex offenders are being banished from one Goodyear community after residents voted Dec. 2 to keep them out.

Homeowners voted 185 to 32 in favor of an amendment to Palm Valley Phase I’s declaration of covenants, conditions and restrictions that prohibits offenders from living there, said Curtis Ekmark, an attorney representing the homeowners association. Full Article

    Lawsuit on the way from Janice !!!!! That development will soon feel what it is like to be STUCK with a cactus where the sun doesn’t shine ! LOL

    • Lake County

      Janice is a California Attorney, not an AZ Attorney. An Attorney licensed in AZ will need to file this.

    And people think this is okay because….?

    I just watched Highlander last night. Not the Adrian Paul crap, or the inane “Highlander 2,” which I simply choose to believe never existed, but the Chris Lambert version with the Queen soundtrack. When I saw this post, all I could think of was the scene where Connor was banished from his village tied to a stock. Hey, he got off light. If the villagers had their way, they would have burned him.

    So…how is this particular little vote any different?

    See, this is why I don’t agree with a tiered registry. We’d just see more discrimination against Tier II and III offenders. Most of us, about 90,000 of us, would end up as Tier II or III under a tiered scam.

  4. The AZ person was known

    The one (1) lone person was known by the victims, which seems to be lost on the voting populace……ignorant people…..can’t think to make a rational decision and don’t recognize the statistics

    The people who voted for this represent the scum of America. They need to get out of my country. They deserve every terrorist attack that they get.

    One good aspect about nonsense like this is that it allows good people to see who the scumbags are so we can keep them away from us.

    Unfortunately I’m seeing this happen more and more with HOA’s (which I already disliked before for other reasons).

    My wife and I purchased a home about 1 1/2 years back. The very first thing I demanded from my realtor:
    “I will not live in a home with any HOA. Period.” Those who live in home with a HOA can enjoy their prison.

      Jessica’s law forced me out of my home in 2007 because I was under 1970 feet away from the property line of a church. After being forced out of my home by two parole agents armed with a notice to vacate, I was devastated. These were the same people who had cleared me to move back to my home not even a month prior. Not only that, but the same people later decided that I didn’t even have to move from my home in the first place and then on top of all that I learned later that there was no teeth in the law that I couldn’t be arrested for violating the law in the first place.

      Moved to a town far away only to have a bad cop move in next door and cause me all kinds of problems. It was then I decided my best plan was to buy a motorhome and suddenly, most of my problems went away.

      My plan now is to find some good land somewhere where I can homestead. No HOA, thank you very much.

    I’m with you. Don’t know why someone would want to have another layer of people telling them what to do. Especially when the rules make no sense, other than to keep things the inverse of diverse… My father in law’s association told him he HAD to have an H2O sucking lawn, no water frugal flowers allowed, right in the middle of our most severe drought in decades. It is to keep up appearances, they say. They can have those appearances. It’s not for me. It just makes everthing chant the same soul crushing brand of big box hardware store ticky tacky, with a paucity of resonance and range, both inside and out, animal, vegetable, mineral and human.

    Didn’t the SCOTUS 2003 decision denote that registration wouldn’t affect occupations or housing?

    So… about that…
