Sex offenders who are homeless are the greater risk (Editorial)

The California Supreme Court made the right call in 2015 when it struck down the most onerous provisions of Proposition 83, known as Jessica’s Law, which prohibited registered sex offenders from living within 2,000 feet of a park or school — essentially banning them from finding housing in most cities and suburbs.

    “Homeless sex offenders who are still on parole account for one-third of all new sex arrests” -> huh?

    “transient offenders were several times more likely to commit new sex crimes.” -> than what other group? And compared to non-registrants?

    “Our initial concern with Jessica’s Law was that while it placed harsher sentences on sex offenders, including requiring them to be registered for life” -> sentence = punishment, enough said.

    “Homeless registered sex offenders are a far greater risk than those who have been able to transition back into community life” -> that is true for all people – with our without criminal convictions of any sort.

    “Let’s also remember that while Jessica’s Law limited where registered sex offenders can live, it doesn’t restrict where they can spend their time during the day” -> precisely. And limiting them from walking distance of the least likely place is absurd.

    In summary, someone here said recently “knowing where I live does not protect anyone”. If it did, one has to question why this is not true for all criminal.s

      They must be using Justice Alito’s algorithm of spewing stats. Remember, CASOMB’s recidivism rate is under 1%.

    What they fail to address is why so many are homeless and unemployed? Ummm maybe being kicked out from every damn apartment and fired due to Megan’s law being used for those purposes when it’s suppose to be illegal!!! I wonder what the statistics will show if the website was not being viewed by background check companies. I still til this day don’t understand how they are getting away with it. Oh well.. please pass tier system in CA!

  3. I't doesn't really work!!

    “knowing where I live does not protect anyone”. If it did, one has to question why this is not true for all criminal. 😂😂😂 Yeah, why not?? I guess only that “groups of convicts” with reconviction rates “below” 5%

    HOMELESS IN GENERAL ARE ON THE RISE IN LOS ANGELES
    LOS ANGELES (KABC) — Many residents will tell you that increasing rent prices in Los Angeles are making things tough.

    There’s a new finding by the real estate website Zillow that suggests it’s about to get a lot tougher for thousands of people who reside in the city.

    The research shows that a five percent rent hike in LA County would likely push 2,000 people into homelessness.

    At the start of 2017, LA County’s homeless population was already at more than 61,000. Zillow is forecasting a 4.5 percent rent increase in the LA area for the coming year.
