OH: Dublin rec center ups screening for sex offenders

People wishing to swim at Dublin’s two pools or exercise at its recreation center will have their names and photos checked against state and national sex-offender registries. If there’s a match, the person won’t be allowed in and Dublin police will be called.

The city council, in approving the measure last week, said it is simply one more step toward ensuring the safety of others. Others see it differently. Full Article

What can you say. First these people have the displeasure of living in Ohio…which IMHO is punishment enough for anyone but to have this injustice to endure in addition to that would make being a RSO in that state obviously cruel and unusual punishment without a doubt.

Shame on those people for depriving others the opportunity to exercise and enjoy the benefits of good health! Shame indeed!

No need to leave California… there are several cities in CA include their rec facilities, and even a Boys and Girls Club (private organization) if memory serves. For example the City of Mission Viejo’s parks ban includes all of the City Rec Centers (Tax Payer subsidized??) in their ordinance as well as the Senior Center. Not only can one not work out, one is also prohibited from attending, say, a quilting class or concert at the Senior Center. They make no bones about the intent – complete banishment – of the ordinance: “It is the purpose and intent of this… Read more »

Costa Mesa Downtown Aquatic Center is also off-limits.

Orange crow county…in the day…they use to have signs
No blacks allowed ..they too were falsely portrayed as
threat to the public…public personnel violating others civil
rights is another lesson that will cost millions &millions of
dollars …thank you..keep up the bad work.

City council…wake up…it’s against the law on soooooo many sections…the Berlin wall was also to ensure the “safety of others”…these council reckless disregard and failure to protect and support the Constitution leads to their downfall and further helps destroy these type Unconstitutional measures…city council tear down your wall …not only an offence against history but an offence toward the dignity of humanity.

Wow! Lawsuit? Why dont they just brand the sex offenders so they wont have to go through this? Or, maybe hang them? So, I can go out and kill someone and have more rights then a sex offender convicted of urinating in public or being a 19 year old who had sex with a 17 year old/whom I later married? Wow

Yep, it is blatant bigotry, pure and simple. There is no data to back up their claim that a registered sex offender is a danger to anyone. The fact that some are dangerous people does not warrant creating this entire group and then punishing them after their time has served on the off chance that one might be a future danger. But they know this, it isn’t about statistics or even protecting people, it is about feeling good by making others miserable. I am fed up and disgusted with this country.

I really dont think Ive read a more disgusting article. This is honestly surreal. Furthermore, as Judges have recently stated, the laws being instituted via cites really make it dangerous for any sex offender to visit any city in OC with respect to laws differing from one city to the other (patchwork). This is truly surreal. When I read the article, it reminded me of Nazi Germany. Ive never heard of anything. So, sex offenders convicted of misdemeanors 17 years ago with informal probation cant visit this establishment, but yet a man or woman convicted of murder or manslaughter are… Read more »

Who better to manipulate and step on as a stairway to superiority than those too weak to defend themselves. Perhaps a day will come when society will have matured enough to feel shame for the injustices done to those men and women “along with their children” who for the most part have to struggle in a world bent on destroying them, in the name of good over evil. No longer is torture needed to search out and destroy strange people possessed with evil and ready to be burned at the stake. Technology has given them the Registry. History has shown… Read more »
