Councilman Wants To Rewrite San Diego Sex Offender Law

San Diego City Councilman Chris Ward says he wants to rewrite an ordinance that puts strict limits on where registered sex offenders can live, as a lawsuit seeks to force the ordinance’s repeal.

Ward was one of five council members who voted last month to uphold the city’s “Child Protection Act,” against advice from the City Attorney’s Office. Courts have found similar ordinances both unconstitutional and ineffective at preventing child sexual abuse. Full Article

Prime time to raise housing market values of the have and have not people who live in restricted areas and don’t. Certainly can be an election issue and whether the elected officials have their constituent’s interests at heart or not. Once they are ruled against on any restriction, the topic is toast and they can start to address homelessness.

One seriously has to wonder what this man’s agenda is. The supreme court voted against this law, the city doesn’t enforce for obvious reasons, there is zero evidence to support it and plenty of evidence showing its flaws, yet he wants to waste tax dollars in a city that can’t fix pot holes, and he wants to bring more lawsuits against the city. Has this man ever consulted one of the SO counselors or met with any of the members of the groups? Has he ever met any RSO’s? This man is out for himself and himself only, or otherwise… Read more »

With apologies to a certain re-fi commercial, this is the biggest no-brainer in the history of mankind.

The reason is votes. He recognizes that the political risk of losing votes to a sleazy opponent who would claim that the incumbent is “pedophile friendly” and “risks the safety of children” is greater than the political risk of costing the city hundreds of thousands of dollars in litigation fees. To be blunt, it is this sentiment that propels ALL laws against registrants in this country.

Eric Knight I agree with your eloquent clarity of the political culture as regards to anything sex offender!

This is exactly what the Colorado case emphasizes… it’s the people who enact additional punishment as well as spread the fear and stigma upon registrants.

Oh the chillllldren…Get a real job….Man these guys make me sick..He looks like a closet perv anyway….Like how it’s always “them” or “they” or “those”?? It’s like saying “those japs” or “them blacks” or “they, the mexs”..You get the point..

Yet another reason why the public registry should be brought down in whole

I agree. I’ll be off the registry in 7 months, and am the father of two young children. Even though the registry will affect me much less in a short amount of time I am still very passionately opposed to its existence because I truly believe it puts my kids in more harm, and the entire country in more harm, by keeping it. I don’t need to look up a neighbor or friend’s neighbor to see if they are on the registry to protect my children. I protect my children from ALL that could potentially harm them since there is… Read more »

Chris I feel the same way. I will fight against the registry with everything within me because it is a not just a fight for freedom, liberty and justice but it is a heavenly cause to do so.

It’s time for a ballot initiative that allows individuals in public service (like these A. Holes) to be personally sued for wilful violations of people’s civil rights. Plain and simple! These A. Holes have a blank check to do whatever they want and with no personal liabilities. This must change!!!

Sounds like the councilman is being desperate.

this guy is the one we always hit in dodgeball ! LOSER !! and still a loSeR !!

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
