OK: Mobile home park offers residence for sex offenders

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – David Nichols drives through his trailer park on the southeast side of Oklahoma City surveying the seemingly constant buzz of activity. Men toil under the blazing summer sun, patching the leaky roofs of trailers, while others try to fix an old car parked in a makeshift garage. Full Article

    The statement below makes me wonder why this is done. I’d like to see a study that proves there would be a problem if two victims of the registry lived together. So far the only thing that has come out of these laws is misery and death to a group of people that have paid their debt to society and want nothing more than to rebuild their lives and put the past behind them. And good laws don’t cause people to die, either by their own hand or the hand of another.

    “There’s a reason why we have passed a law in Oklahoma, as numerous other states have, that (says) you cannot place numerous sex offenders within one housing unit,” Jolley said.””

    At least Rep. Paul Wesselhoft sees the folly in law mill turning out a never ending stream of laws aimed at registrants only. It’s not enough to make a difference; but it’s a start.

    When I paroled in 2011 I stayed for a couple of months in a halfway house in Kern County, California, recommended by my parole agent. There were a total of 13 sex offenders living there, legally under California law. It is ok it it is operated as an alcohol free recovery house.
    As you might imagine, the other residents were a mixed bag. But they didn’t cause any trouble, and I did not hear about any community complaints.
    My point is, this type of thing works. It is a constructive solution. And I also like this guy Nichols with his mobile home park. Let’s get on board with constructive solutions, instead of spending time hating our circumstances or one another. Are you listening, Oklahoma legislature?
