Statement from a group headed by serial harasser Laura Ahern, which gets more than a million dollars a year from the government for conducting compliance checks:

Parents for Megan’s Law Inc., a Long Island-based victims advocacy group, has been one of the leading voices calling for greater supervision of sex offenders, regardless of parole status. The group declined to respond directly to specific questions, but referred to a February press release that called for a “reasonable” residency restriction that “protects our most vulnerable while not placing an unfair burden on communities resulting from clustering.”

The group noted that while “there is minimal evidence demonstrating that residence restriction laws prevent sexual victimization,” it ultimately favors restrictions because “daily exposure and access to a vulnerable victim pool facilitates the potential for sex offender fantasy to become a heinous reality.

Insane. If this group were in California it would be sued by CA RSOL instantly.

Victim Pool? Voters are a Victim Pool for politicians.
