FL: Landlord Bucks Trend, Offers Housing to Sex Offenders

Laws that restrict where sex offenders can live when they are released from prison leave many homeless, but one south Florida apartment manager is providing housing opportunities by leasing apartments to offenders on liberal terms.

“I just believe that everybody deserves a second chance,” said Pamela Eaton, the manager of Fairfield Apartments in south Fort Myers. She indicated her goal is to help sex offenders become independent and productive citizens, “because everybody makes mistakes.” She considers post-release housing one step in that direction.

  1. Tim

    This is a wise businesswoman. She’s done her research. She’s always going to have a waiting list to rent her units, therefore a low vacancy rate, and she is is renting to about the least dangerous category of ex-offenders there is. Constrast this entrepreneur to those large corporations who lobby legislators to have their facilities filled with a steady stream of offenders. Their housing units are prisons and government provides a steady stream of harse laws to keep the cages full. It’s supported by a group of millionaire lobbyists, called ALEC, which includes private prison corporations, but more importantly the corporations who supply the prisons, like McDonalds. Who really is practicing free and gair enterprise here?

  2. Tired of hiding

    Yes, it is great to see someone who is willing to rent to someone who has paid their debt to society and should therefore be able to live where ever the would like right! In Florida the main problem (beside narrow-minded landlords and neighbors) is that they have some of the most restrictive residence restrictions deliberately designed to make it nearly impossible to live in the sunshine state!

    Make no mistake about it…if you want further proof that American has become a POLICE STATE simply take a close look a the prison and legal system. You will be shocked by what you have not been told about it and while we have a tiny 5% of the world’s population we have 25% percent of the world’s prisoners…”Land Of The Free” My ASS!

    Is this really what America is supposed to be like? Doesn’t everyone deserve a second chance? Especially after they have paid that “debt to society”…I guess everyone except those who the system has deemed unworthy of joining society ever again – SEX OFFENDERS!
