Registration Laws for all 50 States

National

FL: Banished

[themarshallproject.org – 10/3/18]

The sun has barely risen over Miami, and Dale Brown loads an orange shopping cart with everything he owns. Through the morning’s swampy heat, he pushes the cart to the edge of the railroad tracks, where he hauls the items one at a time into some overgrowth and covers them with branches. His tent from Wal-Mart, meticulously rolled and packed. A garbage bag with clothes and a blanket. He unscrews the lid to a plastic gallon jug and empties his urine into the brush.

“You feel like an animal,” says Brown, 63.

This industrial neighborhood just beyond Miami’s far western edge is home to lumber yards, auto parts warehouses, and, in recent months, roving encampments of homeless sex offenders. This summer, Brown and a half-dozen other men were living beside a chain-link fence outside a hardware company. Five blocks away, more lived in tents and makeshift shacks. And 12 blocks from there, about a dozen arrived in cars each night.
This story was published in partnership with Longreads.

A combination of federal, state and local laws has rendered almost all of Miami-Dade County off-limits to sex offenders with young victims. The feds say they’re not allowed in public housing. The state says they can’t live within 1,000 feet of a day care center, park, playground or school. The county says they can’t live within 2,500 feet of a school. In a place so densely populated, forbidden zones are everywhere. And in the narrow slivers of permitted space, affordable apartments with open-minded landlords are nearly impossible to come by.

    Wetterling’s mom ought to get with Katy, former commissioner mentioned here, to discuss further how things have gone farther than they anticipated and by reviewing the data, things should different. Then, go to Ron’s house with his daughter present to discuss with them the error of their ways. Maybe Ron will listen to them if no one else can reach him and his own guilt he projects.

    • Henry

      Your dreaming. Ron Book listens to NO ONE.

      and

      He’s ALWAYS wrong!

      • TS

        Yes, Henry, you probably right on that, but one can always hope and wish on it until further notice…

        Given how he treated the news people who interviewed him earlier this year, listening to understand (only to reply) is not an action he implores.

        • Jack

          People have sat down with him to tell him that he is wrong and here is concrete evidence that he is wrong, and he pouts and lashes out like an angry child. Some of the smartest and most educated people including Dr. Jill Levenson of Barry University in Florida (who Ron was even fond of when he met her), have sat down with Ron Book to convince him otherwise and with years of research and concrete evidence and nothing gets to him. Yes, one can hope, but it’s been way too many years of hoping. If he finally dies of a natural death from old age, that would be a lot of faster then trying to convince him otherwise – unfortunately.

        People should always refer to him as Ron Crook. Branding is important.

        I was talking to him one-on-one many years ago just as he was starting to ramp up his Registration crimes and he told me, “Well, reasonable people can disagree.” I told him that it is too bad that he is not a reasonable person. He has since gotten worse and even more criminal.

        Ron and Lauren Crook are enemies of all good Americans. Good Americans should neutralize, marginalize, and ostracize them. They’ve fed off of big government for far too long. Little, pathetic control freaks.

  2. cool CA RC

    one of the best article I’ve read.

  3. Tim

    Same here. Great article.

  4. RC FL

    That is the registration office in Miami Dade that I go to for registration intake in part 2 ” by the book ” of that marshall project article. lol. I wonder how they convince the registration office to put a camera to video record behind the detectives. They don’t even allow smart phones in there.
