FL: Month After Irma, Sex Offenders Haven’t Left


Beneath a shredded blue tarp, 58-year-old Claudia Baker takes a swig of A&W root beer. “Imagine your faucet dripping at night. That’s what life is like for us—except instead of just hearing the drip, we feel it,” she says.

After serving nine years in prison for child pornography, Baker now lives at an encampment of sex offenders near the train tracks near Hialeah. There, residents sleep on wet cots, endure massive storm floods and openly defecate behind a storage container. Nearby business owners say they’ve scared away customers. “My dog in Texas lives better than I do,” says Baker.

My empathy and sympathy remains 100% with the RCs, and 0% with the business owners who don’t bend their legislators’ ears over what Mr. Book’s wonderful vendetta has caused. I kind of hope Book does act on his threat, as it will then make a banishment suit all the riper. I gotta think the laws in Miami/FL resemble–if not exceed–MI’s enough to toss a Snyder-based suit on their sorry @sses.

Agreed. I don’t have one bit of empathy or sympathy for anyone who supports the Registries. Let them suffer.

” my dog lives better than I do”

Said by anyone else, that statement would be an exaggerated figure of speech, but for some registrants, it is an orchestrated reality.
Have the citizens of Florida a conscience ?Are they aware that this reprehensible situation is the result of an ordinance that prevents people from finding suitable housing or returning to their own homes where they belong? It blows my mind to think that this is going on and the community doesn’t even care.

Shows just how pathetic Americans have become.

Land of the regulated home of the coward! Get used to it.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
