FL: Marco Island may increase sex offender buffer zone

MARCO ISLAND, Fla. – Keep sex offenders out! That’s the message from Marco Island. The city might ban sex offenders from living 2,500 feet from where kids live, play and go to school. But, on an area as small as Marco Island, does that mean sex offenders will be banished completely? Full Article

I just don’t understand how they can get away with this stuff. Is no one back there suing?

As safe as Marco Island is to raise her 4-year-old daughter, Joanna Veipi says the city should restrict where sex offenders can live on the island. “Yeah, that’s absolutely a great idea,” said Veipi. You see? Fear is contagious and sells itself. The sad reality is, this is how Florida rolls. You do of course realize the hate and vengeance has become normalized and routine against “those people” there.

Only a small percentage of people who live in Florida have any sense. Truly. The vast majority are clueless idiots.

Very few people commented on the story, BTW. My guess is that the stupid people who support this kind of stuff do not read often or much.

Actually, one lawsuit already failed, that was in Miami. The state is threatening to pass a statewide 2,500 foot range.

With regard to the lawsuit that failed: In my opinion, it was horribly argued, with no mention of actual miniscule recidivism in the arguments, and the judge citing fictitiously high recidivism rates. The suit was filed in state, not federal court as well. Florida desperately needs a Janice Bellucci.

Leave it to Florida to keep continually moving backwards as the rest of the (some of it anyway) country is seemingly starting to open their eyes a little bit to the futility and uselessness of the registry. Even though we know allot of the country will never admit they were wrong. They may change a few things; but admit they are wrong? never!

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
