The city has finally taken a giant step toward protecting all its residents by considering a ordinance that will amend the strict sexual offender housing requirements that have put the community at risk.
The ordinance in question decreases the distance sexual predators must reside from places, such as schools, day care centers and parks or playgrounds, from 2,500 feet to 1,500 feet.
Sound contradictory? How does reducing the distance an ex-felon must live from places children frequent make the public safer?
It’s simple. It makes the public safer by giving these ex-offenders more places to live.
