TX: Dallas PD shuts down sex offender unit

DALLAS — ____ ____ maintained a Facebook page presenting himself as a teenage girl. The convicted sex offender was caught with 100,000 child pornography images last year. He was recently sentenced to 13 years in federal prison. ____ ____ was arrested for failing to register as a sex offender until police could get enough evidence to charge him with raping a woman inside a Baylor University Medical Center parking garage. He’s still in jail.

What do these two men have in common? They were captured through the efforts of the Sex Offender Apprehension Program, or SOAP. It’s a squad of six Dallas Police Department detectives monitoring the city’s 4,000 sex offenders.

But starting next week, the squad is being indefinitely disbanded, and those detectives will be assigned to a violent crimes task force numbering in the hundreds. Full Article

GOOD RIDDANCE!!!!!

Sigh. Nothing will get better if the only response is investigation, violation, and prosecution. Figure out why a person would be drawn to do what they did and then insure as few people as possible end up down those paths by providing as many alternatives for as many people as possible.

“SOAP detectives found that he had failed to renew his state ID, which placed him in violation of the state’s sex offender registration laws. That was enough to secure a felony warrant so he could be taken into custody.”
