TX: Sex offenders banned from S.A. parks, River Walk

SAN ANTONIO — City Council on Thursday unanimously approved an ordinance to restrict registered sex offenders from city parks and a portion of the River Walk.

The ordinance creates park safety zones that registered sex offenders can’t enter. They can’t live within 1,000 feet or loiter, whether standing or in a car, within 300 feet of a park safety zone, the draft ordinance states. Full Article

    I just visited San Antonio/River Walk! Don’t mess with Texas! Although, unlike California, Texas only requires you to register for 10-years/lifetime for the worst of the worst. As a Judge in California has already stated, living in California with all of the different ordinances in city to city is like a chess game! These city ordinances need to be addressed!

    Where have you been, USA? Ordinances in many cities and two counties have been challenged in court….and we are winning! We are patiently waiting for a decision from the Court of Appeal in the Godinez case which will be significant in this area. That court will decide either the Orange County Superior Court was correct in its determination that the Orange County ordinance was void because it violated the state constitution or not. Ordinances in several cities, such as Lake Forest, Lancaster and Palmdale have already been repealed. And there is an ongoing case in federal district court against El Dorado County. We ARE making a difference! I challenge you and others — whether registered citizens, family members or friends — to join us by showing up, standing up and speaking up because we’ve still got a lot to do.

    The Sex Offender Registry is a LIVING DEATH it is Evil and it is Wrong. Why? Because at the whim of any politician looking to be re-elected they can add more and more punitive measures Ex Post-facto to the registrants requirements. Remember these citizens after doing probation, therapy and time served have a re-offense rate of only 1.9% according to the latest Department of justice report. To be for such a thing as the sex offender registry is extremely Unconstitutional. If someone is so bad they have to be on some kind of online hit-list then why are they even amongst us. Whom am I? I’m a registrant that was convicted of a misdemeanor not involving a child over 14 years ago years ago. I have been featured in OC Parenting Magazine in 2006 received a US Congressional award for community service for helping cancer patients and the homeless. I was a salon owner and hairstylist. These citizen are like me they are good citizens and parents. Don’t believe the hype.

    “McManus said the law would make parks safer but did not provide statistics that showed whether sex offenders committing crimes in parks was an issue.”

    In other words, “Proof? We ain’t got no proof! We don’t need no proof!
    I don’t have to show you any stinking proof!”

    (With a play on words from The bandit leader, called “Gold Hat” in “Treasure of the Sierra Madre” and played by actor “Alfonso Bedoya”.)
