IL: Alderman wants sex offenders banned from libraries in summer

Chicago’s 78 public libraries would be off-limits to registered sex offenders during summer months, when the buildings tend to be overrun with children, under a pre-emptive public safety crackdown proposed by a Southwest Side alderman. Full Article

    Sounds ripe for a Law suit.

    • cool CA rso

      yes it is but which lawyers will file?

      • Robert Curtis

        If it’s file in federal court like we have been doing can’t our team file against them even if we are in another state?

  2. Clark

    Yes..IF they do that scheme to undermine civil rights ..SUE BIG ..$$$$$$

    I personally think this is a wonderful idea. I’ve never heard of a sex offender committing a crime at a library, but this is a great sounding law! Plus, why should a sex offender be there anyways? Sex offenders shouldn’t be allowed to study there, conduct research, bring their children or be given the right to use the computer services there in order to seek employment? Sex offenders (even if they already paid their debt to society and pay taxes) shouldn’t have access to public services of departments! That’s wrong. The gang members, drug dealers, prostitutes, homeless and everyone else should be allowed in the libraries, but not some guy who committed a crime 30 years ago, married, employed and lived a stellar life since then! I wouldn’t sue as well! It might send a message that this is discrimination, wrong, prejudicial and unconstitutional!

      Might as well send the library a thank you letter. Then a list of names revealing who should be banned and why (make sure to include the children), remember some of them are just as if not more dangerous than the adults. Actually an even better idea, put together an event at the library for all the registrants in the area. Have them walk into the library and ask to be out on the summer banned list. Don’t worry if the librarians have no idea what anyone is talking about, just have each person insist that such a list exists and being put on it is the most important thing that must be done before summer starts.

    If you sue include IL’s other restrictions – parks, park district or municipal owned property, bike paths, trails, forest preserves, schools and private owned but publically accessed child areas (McDonalds, Chuck E Cheese, Target toy section).

    And, although IL has a tiered registery their restrictions apply to anyone convicted even if no longer required to register.

    I wish someone would sue. I’ve donated towards IL’s legal fund, volunteered to help, donated to WAR, etc, all in the hopes something will be done.

    Janice was sweet enough to offer copies of her data for use by an IL lawyer. We just need one.

    In IL a SO can’t own a food truck (or work in one), be a photographer or assist or live within 500 feet of anything child related.

    He is probably trying to use this as a spring board to run for mayor or another office.

    He is shot out of the same cannon as the idiots in Hysteria from what I can tell.

    Ignorance is bliss. However ignorance creates fear and fear creates hate – what a winning combination for bottom feeding politicos.
