Article leaves out one very important fact. Minnesota state law dictates that communities like South St Paul can only impose restrictions on high risk level 3 ‘predatory offenders’ who make up a very tiny percentage (less than 2%) of the state’s registered sex offenders. In fact, all other offenders aren’t even listed on the state public registry. That includes level 2, level 1, and unclassified (who make up the majority of registrants which include juveniles). I found this info out because I’ve contemplated moving up to Duluth where I know a friend. I wouldn’t be listed but the cold weather still overrides my decision. Not to say level 3 offenders should have to face hardship, but look at the context

The article said this wold be one of the strictest. It seems as though there are other municipalities that have implemented regulations above state law. Is this being challenged here and elsewhere in MN?

The brainchild of a brainless Nazi disguised as the chief of police…

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
