WI: Sex offender board aims ‘never to make a mistake’

The city’s sex offender residency ordinance is 10 years old this spring. Passed in 2007, it forbids convicted sex offenders from moving to within 1,500 feet of any place where children are likely to gather. The restriction essentially closes off most affordable residential areas of the city to convicted sex offenders who didn’t already live there before the ordinance was passed.

But Green Bay’s ordinance, unlike most of the other 175 ordinances placing housing restrictions on sex offenders in communities throughout the state, provides one major exception: Any sex offender may seek an exemption by taking his or her case to a five-person board, whose citizen members are appointed by the mayor.

    ““We want to be able to know where THESE people are.”

    These people? Really? Sounds like a blatant attempt at dehumanization.

    Great. So while keeping “tabs” on “those” people, the cops can take credit for “safeguarding” children and look good while doing relatively nothing. Got it.

    Sounds like fraud to me.

    Hmmmm, this “never to make mistake” if this is talking about the system of sex offender registry, personifies hypocrisy and ignorance.

  3. James

    This is a stupid goal…human beings are always making mistakes…and just what is a mistake? The definition of child has been so tortured that it now includes a 17 year old mother of two. Likewise consent. Real children and violence or active coercion I understand…otherwise not so much.

      Do they consider it a mistake if they deny residency to someone who never commits another crime?

    Is there also a board to determine whether former murderers, burglars, muggers, drunk drivers, domestic abusers, arsonists, scam artists, swindlers, and other ne’er-do-wells can enjoy the pleasures of living in Green Bay, Wisconsin?

    • Timmr

      No, because I think they like getting together and hearing someone confess stories about devient sex. And get paid for it, They want to bring the public to join in the fun, too. Murder and the like that is old hat. I think these people need to go to a therapist and get in touch with why they feel their lives are so dull, they need to do this.

      If you’re a career criminal and a violent offender you don’t have to worry about being a 2nd tier citizen in the US.

    How can such people continue to lie and create all kinds of fallacies about how the sex offender registry is working effectively, protects children, requiring mandatory public notification of registrants, and that the system never makes mistakes?

  6. Renny

    The very second someone not previously convicted who lives in the “safety zone” offended and is convicted, the City of Green Bay will have to admit it made a mistake.

    Children are not safe in safety zones. We just need to ensure that that victim who went unprotected confronts the City and asks them why they failed to protect him from his mother the offender.
