good..they ought to find out their lawmakers addresses and use those too…

LOL, the actual TV report is hilarious!! What a bunch of morons! People who support the Registries and say “s*x offender” are idiots.

Those poor, poor people who just found out that “s*x offenders” live near a Walmart!! Hahahahahahahahhahahahahaha! I hope those poor, helpless people never find out that “s*x offenders” go into that Walmart, and every other one, probably every single day and NO ONE has the first clue about it.

Vapid people and media are why we have Registries. Perhaps those people should consider actually supervising their children.

“We go there, like, 10 times a week,” Poole said. “We literally live right down the street. It’s pretty scary, you know? We have kids and, you know, you don’t want (the sex offenders) being around and you don’t know who it is.”

So this lady has been going there, “like, 10 times a week” without knowing RCs were there, and what happened? Absolutely nothing. Does she think that just because she now *knows* they are there, something will happen? Think about it, lady. Just think about it. This proves that RCs are, for the most part, NOT a problem. She also has no idea how many people she’s been near who have a communicable disease, are pickpockets, or anything else. She is the exact reason why we are suffering these many useless laws.

A risk (i.e. odds of something happening) is the same whether or not we are conscious of it. My chance of winning the lottery don’t change once I learn the odds. My risk of getting diabetes is, at any given moment, the same, regardless of my knowing that risk level.

“Walmart shopper Heather Poole was dismayed when she heard about the lowlifes lurking at the Clearlake Road store”

The lowlifes? Holy dogsh*t. Top-notch journalism, NY Post. This article is a shining example of the continued blatant hate and fear mongering.

As for registrants using Walmart as the nearest address, it’s almost as if they have few or no other options available to them because the police state of Florida makes it impossible for RCs to live anywhere or find stable housing and work to get on with their lives after having paid their debts.

I gotta say, if I were homeless as a RC in FL, living among a transient population who are already essentially anonymous and untraceable, I honestly don’t think I’d even bother registering at all.

RCs should avoid that hateful state like the plague.

Florida, and everyone who lives there is just begging to be destroyed.

😂😂 The sex offender public notification “registry” is backfiring in soooo many ways on soooo many days just like I knew it would😂😂. Hey Laura Ahearn, Looks like sink or swim time for you😂😂.

So, then, there are sex offenders and perverts hanging around Wal-Mart? Yes, and also registered citizens…

The writing of this article is so bad. Who ever the author “Yaron Steinbuch” is please stop writing. Go to school, get educated in real life and English. Oh, yaa WalMart. Thanks for helping!

As always the wise Bugs Bunny has the correct idea:comment image

Every single big super Walmart center that I have been to in Florida has a county sheriff Police officer assigned to it. They are literally right at the entrance with a marked car and usually two officers. So what’s the problem? Anyhow, when I go to Walmart, the only thing I’m worried about ” crime wise ” is that they steal my car. Or if I walk back to my car and someone is waiting to rob me and my goods at gun point. That is the most common crime (robbery) and you even see it on the news more often than any other crime. Not necessarily at Walmart, but malls and stores and such. etc.

The “10 times a week customer at Walmart” wants to be a victim. “Poor me, there are sex offenders hanging around Walmart and I might not even know it.”
Get real lady.
Not every “registrant”, is bad. They are not all out to get you. There may be plenty of people in Walmart right this minute that aren’t registrants, but are bad people, meaning to do you harm. The fact that they aren’t on a registry makes no difference. Why aren’t you “so scared” of them?
The registry will eventually collapse under it’s own weight from ridiculous laws and the lawsuits that follow.
And if government is requiring the homeless to list the “nearest” building as an address, well, then Walmart needs to address it with the government, it was their bright idea in the first place! If it wasn’t for the registry, many of these people probably wouldn’t be homeless to begin with.

“We have kids and, you know, you don’t want (the sex offenders) being around and you don’t know who it is.”

I love the ignorance. Only 10% of abusers are strangers. If she’s worried about her own kids then she needs to pay a lot more attention to the trusted members of her family.
