WI: Controversial sex offender proposal tabled by Common Council

MILWAUKEE – The Milwaukee Common Council’s Steering and Rules Committee on Thursday tabled a proposal to prevent sex offenders from living within a third of a mile from schools, parks and day cares.

That may sound very thoughtful with regards to protecting children. But, speakers at the hearing Thursday offered another viewpoint.

It’s pretty easy to go online and see if you’re living near a sex offender. But, police fear that could change. Convicted rapists could start to lie, set up a p.o. box someplace else, but truly be living in a home near a school, daycare or park. Full Article

    Good for them. However, I don’t see the Common Council having the guts to stand up to the criticism they will receive if some type of law is not pursued. Maybe they have done some research and found out that this type of law has been deemed unconstitutional in another state (California). Thank you Janice. Having lived in the fine state of Wisconsin for many years, I will definitely be keeping an eye on this situation.
