    “A federal judge just issued a preliminary injunction against Yorkville in response to the lawsuit, stating that there’s no evidence an offender who lived in Yorkville is any more or less likely to commit another sex crime than an offender who didn’t.”
    >>It’s so refreshing and heartening to see the judges are now not just hearing the truth about recidivism, but are stating it themselves.

    “Milwaukee has not made any changes in its rules, but Alderman Michael Murphy, who warned about the repercussions when the city debated adding an ordinance in 2014, says changes will be likely.

    “’And not just in Milwaukee,’ he adds, ‘but throughout the state of Wisconsin, and potentially the whole country.’”
    >> And likewise that this alderman gets it, and apparently has since 2014. He also sees the potential of the whole BS scheme collapsing. I can already hear the LEOs crying that it hampers their ability to fight and prevent crime, refusing to accept anything as truth besides 80% recidivism.

    ===========================
    Kenosha similarly cut its buffer zones down to 1,000 feet from 2,500, and removed a clause that said a registered sex offender couldn’t live within six blocks of another sex offender. The plaintiff attorneys had argued there’s no evidence the distance between sex offenders has any bearing on public safety.
    ===========================

    Wait, couldn’t this apply to viewing ML? If living next to one another doesn’t have any bearing on public safety, then why does looking at ML be a felonious act? There’s no statistical bearing to public safety living to one another. Why would viewing ML be a public safety? I don’t get this at all.

      That whole clause on ML about not looking is completely stupid given that you can simply look at the numerous 3rd party websites to get the same info. And since all those websites are hosted by private companies, the ML clause doesn’t apply to them. So in essence, if you enter the main door, you’re committing a felony. But if you use the smaller door next to it to enter the exact same lobby, you’re good to go! This is pretty much the entire registry in a nutshell with all of its restrictions post supervision.

      I’ve long wondered the rational behind not being able to look. I guess RCs don’t have the right to public safety as non-RCs. It’s all about public safety, we’re told,…but I guess just not for us.

        I think when they come up with these laws they just come up with anything that sounds restrictive and/or will faciltate sending you back to prison.

        At a earlier post here, it was mentioned it was to prevent RCs from knowing about other RCs. Hence using the ML web data for cooperative purposes. It a little late as the cat is already out of the house.
