Grover Beach expands zones barring child molesters

Despite a threatened lawsuit, a resident’s plea and a councilman’s misgivings, Grover Beach effectively blocked any additional child molesters from living in the city. The City Council voted 4-1, with Councilman Bill Nicolls dissenting, to approve the second reading of an ordinance expanding so-called “protected zones” to 2,000 feet around schools, preschools, day care centers and parks.

Previously, the distance was 1,000 feet. Individuals convicted of sex crimes against children — younger than 18 — who are required to register as sex offenders are barred from moving into temporary or permanent residences within those zones. Full Article

Well, Bill Nicols, thanks for presenting yourself as the only reasonable councilmember on that vote. Your city’s next item agenda is to write a check for Janice and CA RSOL when she comes to town. El Centro and Loma Linda both saw the light plainly written in several amendments of both state and federal constitutions before they had to shell out the big bucks. Saves us from completely depending on the hat passed around at the RSO meetings.

Stupid is as stupid does. Janice, go for it and make some money. Can you make your max price attorney fees? I think you may get rich on the ignorant politicians.

Nice and convenient of them to point out that there will be nowhere for these registrants to live. This should be a slam dunk. It re. Taylor many hours were spent researching the boundaries in order to prove there were few pockets for registrants to reside in. It seems foolish that they didn’t investigate the issue a little more thoroughly after being warned. It’s time for a new city attorney I believe.

Why do I get the feeling that those dummies just may get more trouble than they bargained for? Once again; we have another city council who’s statements and actions prove they don’t know what they are talking about. They, like most of the country believe what they are told to believe and are too lazy to see if what they are told to believe is true. If Janice decides to pursue this one (and I hope she does) I hope she spanks the hell out of those well intended but ill informed fools. They need to pay for their obstinate attitudes.

Grover Beach, you’ve been warned…Janice is coming, s
o sic’em Janice!
