The City of Ft. Lauderdale’s ordinance has caused more than half of the registered sex offenders in the city to be homeless.
The City ordinance, which banishes sex offenders from; “within one thousand four hundred (1,400) feet of any of the following:(1) Any school where the majority of the population attending are students less than sixteen (16) years of age; (2) Designated public school bus stop; (3) Child day care facility as defined in the city’s Unified Land Development Regulations where the majority of the population attending are students less than sixteen (16) years of age; (4) Park or playground.”
This ordinance has left practically nowhere in Ft. Lauderdale to live, and the statistics speak for themselves.
As of yesterday there were five hundred nineteen (519) registered in Ft, Lauderdale, Florida. 260 (more than 50%) of them are registered as transient!
