NC: Registered sex offenders given the boot at local homeless shelters

No more room at the inn for sex offenders. That’s the word from the Mecklenburg County Sheriff. We’ve learned that a number of offenders have used the uptown shelter as their registered address, but no more. 1210 North Tryon is a well known address near Center City Charlotte. It is listed as the Uptown Men’s Shelter.

Type in the address in this state run search engine, and a place known for housing homeless still comes up as a residence for sex offenders. Keeping tabs on offenders here been a thorn in the side of Sheriff Chipp Bailey, but he’s breathing a little easier over a new policy the shelter has put in place. “We are talking about folks who are pretty much homeless and they drift,” the Sheriff said. ” The decision was made whenever that are not accepting any registered sex offenders and that’s probably for the best.” Full Article

For the best??? I guess they have a bridge in town those homeless guys can sleep under.

Why don’t these Nazi types just create one big ghetto for everyone on the registry and stop portraying their ignorance, hate and malice as something that is good and right, it’s bad and un-Americana/wrong.

WHere are the “Christian Church ” that claim that they “LOVE EVERYONE”

The constitution applies to all men not just the popular!
Shame on the Politicians and Elected Nc officials. Hope
they become homeless one day and get turned away!

In the end, everyone has to answer to God. They just think they are god now, But will find him in the end. So they condemn a man even tho they are such, So how much will God condemn them in the end.
