Authorities looked at nearly 1,800 homes for this convicted child predator, but none were suitable. He now lives in a motel

A convicted child predator, whose proposed home was destroyed in a suspicious fire, has been released and is living in motels in Fresno County.

Liberty, the contractor hired to supervise Snyder 24 hours a day, and the California Department of State Hospitals looked at 1,749 homes in Fresno County as possible residences for him. Full Article

I have a significant problem with this: “In a Facebook post, the Sheriff’s Office urged Squaw Valley residents to speak up to stop Snyder’s placement in their community.” This is well beyond the mission and duty of the Sheriff’s Office. In fact, I wonder if it could perhaps be illegal political activity. It’s one thing for the Sheriff to put out a neutral statement saying this person is seeking, etc. It’s quite another to outright “urge” residents to act. If this is okay, what’s to stop the Sheriff from “urging” residents to start making life hard for other RCs already… Read more »

This echoes the story last month of the gent in AZ where the sheriff’s deputy told the campground owner they should not be doing business with the RC, which is not in sheriff’s or his office’s line of business to do. I have to agree this is potential illegal political activity.

At minimum, it appears to violate the National Sheriffs’ Association’s Code of Ethics (https://www.sheriffs.org/sites/default/files/tb/NSACodeofEthics.pdf): ***”I shall ensure that I and my employees, in the performance of our duties, will enforce and administer the law according to the standards of the U.S. Constitution and applicable state constitutions and statutes so that equal protection of the law is guaranteed to everyone. To that end I shall not permit personal opinion, party affiliations, or consideration of the status of others to alter or lessen this standard of treatment of others.” Hmm… Personal opinion? Consideration of the status of others? Altering or lessening the… Read more »

You could apply that to almost any sheriff in Florida. Many have openly stated they purposely make it hard on rc’s so they will leave their county.

@AJ

How binding is that code? If the do that, what are the repercussions for the Sheriff and their office if found they committed a violation against the code? Can they be sued if found in violation after an ethics inquiry agrees they are guilty of a violation? Does the Sheriff have to openly state they agree to the code?

this is that happed when Singleton got out , they end up putting singleton in a trailer on some prison grounds tell he was off prole , its really a drag he went on to kill a women in Florida , these hi profile cases are really counter productive , its to bad that much more time would of been spent on helping him so not reoffend rather than the stupid prison time to punish , I just don’t see how punishment was cheaper or better than helping him so there would a much lesser chance of reoffending , not… Read more »

Essentially, the public can ban him from living in their area.

If you call that living.

“But none of the homes were deemed suitable for Snyder, a sexually violent predator convicted seven times of molesting children, the district attorney’s office said in a statement.”

Was this seven counts or seven separate convictions? If he’s being let out into the community, I’m thinking its the former. If it’s the latter, this person has severe issues and I don’t know if he’d fair well on the outside.

Still, these restrictions and allowing public opinion on who lives where, is pretty bad in general. The public should have as little say as possible. People are dumb, panicky animals.

I saw this very soon after it was posted here. After a number of hours I have come up with one question. Where did the author of the story come up with the idea that the authorities were searching for a home for this guy? The California department of state hospitals isn’t law enforcement and neither is the healthcare company hired to watch the man 24/7. If anything the authorities were waging a campaign against this guy finding a suitable residence. The sheriff’s office and district attorney wanted the public to get a court to deny the man a home… Read more »

This only goes to show why there cant be a registry tiered or otherwise! You cant villanize people as this and expect that the public will be accepting. I wouldn’t feel comfortable knowing that he is around. And without the registry, as it’s always been since the beginning of time. People just dont learn of these dirty little secrets, and life goes on. And yes occasionally a child does have a bad experience that most will get over. There was no epidemic in sex crimes when registries happened: Only a series of headline cases here folks wondered how such things… Read more »
