“state interest in the uniform treatment, management, rehabilitation and reintegration of sex offenders,”

Whaaa….? Did this guy bump his head? Uniform treatment & reintegration??? Ohhhh; I get it, he’s on drug’s 🙂

I’m confused about the residency restrictions and preemption. Most states have set up residency restrictions and yet many municipalities within the state will tailor their own, usually with a much more onerous set of guidelines, which will invariably leave few options for registrants to reside. My confusion is how are these municipal residency restrictions any different from the park bans and presence restrictions with regards to preemption or supremacy clause? Whether the registrant is on parole, probation, or not? I’d like to see some challenges in federal court down in Florida if this approach is viable.

holy crap, q, what country and value system do you come from???

“Equal Protection” (core founding principle of US constitution) == “Uniform Treatment”. This shouldn’t be a hard concept to understand.

“Reintegration”?!??! Well, what else are you going to do? Lock them up forever? Never worked before, won’t work now. Criminals WILL reenter society. Neither killing them nor incarcerating them forever is practical (costs more to imprison than it does to send to Ivy-league colleges), merciful, or very Christian. If we do not give convicts the tools to re-enter society, then society is only creating more outsiders who undermine society.

And “on drugs”?!? I guess you never knew anyone who has ever taken prescription drugs. Which, BTW, are the leading drug killers in the US.

Every city county owes to people on registry a good settlement $$$$$$amount for scamming rights under color if law…they owe BigTime$.
