MA: Sex-offender restrictions back on burner in Worcester

There has been an ongoing debate in Worcester over the past several years about whether the city should restrict where Level 2 and Level 3 sex offenders can live.  City councilors have talked about the need for an ordinance that would restrict those sex offenders from living within certain distances of public parks, schools, day care centers and other areas where young children may congregate.

Lets face it. This is another feel good law. In the end, this will end up in Federal Court, lawsuits will result and nothing will result from this other than the law being overturned. To think that someone who has paid their debt to society, possibly a first time offender and now a law abiding citizen may continue to punished for something that occurred so long ago. Prohibiting someone living in a certain area is prejudicial! Furthermore, it will solve NOTHING. I say pass the ordinance, sue their butts and collect. GO FOR IT

Dear Worcester, You have a nice city. I’ve been there and enjoyed my time there.

It will be costly and will eventually be overturned. It will accomplish nothing and no one will be made more safe. In other words, it will be a complete waste of your time to even bring it up again.… Read more »
