Sex offenders in nursing homes issue begs for answers

… Others responding to the investigation said it’s a complicated issue in need of more study.

“The question is what do we do with these people,” said state Sen. Peggy Lehner, R-Kettering. “You obviously have people who are in need of nursing home care who happen to be sexual predators. And what is the alternative for them?”

The investigation explored an idea other states have proposed but none have implemented — creating specialized nursing homes for those on the sex offender registry.

Critics said that approach would isolate offenders from family and friends while creating a prison-like setting. Full Article

    And the insanity continues. Peggy Lehner believes that everyone on the registry is a “predator”. I am so sick of being labeled like this. When most of us on the registry are “no touch” and the majority of the touch convictions were either consensual or an ancient conviction never having been repeated, there is zero chance of anything happening ever again. WTF???? I wish we could some how sort out the actual predators from the registry and begin trying to solve this problem for those of us that are NOT predatory. At least we would be able to logically argue against the registry for most of us. Caught peeing in public? Caught with a few deleted photos? Fall in love with a girl when you are 19 and she is 14? Each time one of the “predatory” offenders re-offends it takes us all down one more step into complete and total banishment.

    As I approach retirement age it scares the hell out of me that I may have a stroke or get ill requiring nursing care. Theoretically I could be homeless.

      A better option would be to move to a rural state and then once there, FTR and let the taxpayers house and feed you and provide your medical care.

      That’s what I am doing, I am not going to saddle my family with medical bills, the taxpayers can foot my health care bills, feed me and house me.

        FTR?

        • Will A

          FTR is Failure to Register.

          And that is certainly a very interesting option Renny. I love the idea of retaliating against government but I’m not ever going to allow them to control me again. F them. I am going to control them.

          My life is going to be acceptable to me and what *I* want. IF someone is standing in the way of that I am going to make them pay dearly. I will treat them like a mortal enemy. They are just like ISIS to me.

          I agree, the Government is an Enemy. remember 1776.

        • Will A

          I love the sentiment.

          I truly think it is our neighbors who are the enemy. It is the mass of the U.S. population that supports the Registries. And remember that “the government” is really just a bunch of our neighbors. It is nothing more than people and they are the people who live among us. They are the enemy.

          When you are being harassed and attacked by “the government”, remember that it is people doing it. You can individually identify the harassing terrorists. Those people are the enemy.

        • David Kennerly

          Yes, ultimately it is the people who are responsible for our decline into authoritarianism. We need to acknowledge that they are the reasons we have the elected officials that we do and it is they who have facilitated the policies of cruelty and personal destruction. The failure of American society is a failure of its citizens and of democracy which most are unable to distinguish from the politics of a republic. Failure has an arc and we can locate present society somewhere along its trajectory.

          The GOVT is MORE than a enemy ! I know its self destructive !.. But cant wait till RUSSIA Sends some nukes our way !!!

    Nursing home Costs start at around 4 grand a month, I agree with RENNY let the state pay for it.

  3. Rick

    Sexual predators are in every bar in the country every night, lol. This nation is full of sexual predators from children, to teenagers, to adults. Are you kidding me. If I was foreigner, this is the last country on earth I would visit.

  4. Curiouser

    I stopped counting how many sexual predators there are/have been in Congress or the White House. Hell, looks like the First Husband-to-be will be living there again soon!
