FL: Commentary: More homeless sex offenders on the way

The United States is home to about 750,000 sex offenders, with slightly less than 60,000 registered in Florida. According to a 2012 study by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, Florida saw a 74 percent increase in the number of sex offenders in the past five years.

What has also increased exponentially in the last five years is the number of municipalities that have passed tough residency restrictions against those classified as sex offenders. With thousands being added to the list each year and Florida requiring lifetime registration, the number of registrants will steadily climb while the available housing options will steadily decrease, leaving a growing number of registrants with nowhere to live.

Florida sicken me and all of the good ole boys there as well. I hope a hurricane simply wipes the entire useless state into the ocean once and for all. The state has simply made it impossible for a sex offender to live there…that is totally unconstitutional as it limits movement and certainly destroys the pursuit of happiness on any level if one remains in the state!

If there were any lawyers with any compassion in that state they would be all over this but I am afraid their only motivation there is money!
