FL: Homeless sex offender listed intersection near middle school as his address

[wftv.com – 5/22/19]

The sexual offender registry is designed to help residents know where sexual offenders live.

Channel 9 found out that within a 1-mile radius of Lake Eola Park, there are twice as many homeless sexual offenders as there are sexual offenders living in permanent residences.

In dense downtown Orlando, there are 11 sexual offenders and sexual predators with real addresses (homes or apartments).

Twice that number — 22 sex offenders or predators — live on the street or list homeless shelters as their residence.

“It seems horrible,” said Sam Johnson, an Orlando parent. “My concern, is is there a plan in place? That’s just a thing?”

Transients are typically marked by a tent instead of a home on the Florida Department of Law Enforcement sexual offender registry website.

Channel 9 found that people listed their addresses at places including a 7-Eleven on North Mills Avenue, the Lynx Central Station, Lake Cherokee’s Al Coith Park and a State Road 408 overpass.

“You’ve got to have a way to keep track of them,” Orlando resident Larry McIntyre said. “If you have no residence, how can you keep track of the sex offender?”

Duh. I think Florida’s leaders have a terrible viewpoint on offenders. They complain about homelessness, but yet make it almost impossible to work or find residency! As everyone is aware, when people are working, starting families and doing the right thing, re offensive rates plummet. Wake up
Florida. People and government should be looking for ways to rehabilitate, rather then destroy people’s lives!!!

“The sex offender registry” working as intended keeping children everywhere safe.

Ineffectiveness as in “with no proof of works”(N.C. V Grady) will eventually erode the $, but the ” other uses of the databases ” justified originally have been ingrained with no return. Similar the the pre-war jew ” the registration regimes black listing effect will continue to spread to others and force them out of social circles and public services. This to a social effect of lawmaking on the extremes. It was thought the courts could slow the power of each extreme.
The problem with the sex registrants position is that Each base has their own stake. A. Big Data, B. Big nanny socialists. Same theme as A. Them that own the plantation, B. Them that operate\ run the plantation. In the distant future, perhaps the foreseeable, man will confront his grave error in making human subservient by law to machine upkeep.

“How do you track them”, …. you as in who? Dont you mean I? How do I track another person 24/7…. sounds dumb with an I statement, nothing gives that person a right to track a registered offender.

well lets see the LOSERS that crreated this registry have also caused 99% of the SO’s to become HOMELESS ! Maybe tell your loser congress people to get rid of the registry and they wont be homeless living in a park FOOL

This news reporter knows nothing about investigative reporting.

The registry does nothing but ostracize those who are already having a hard time integrating back into society once the court system is done with them, essentially setting them up for failure. When did our great society that began by sprouting its roots in the value and fair treatment of the individual? Those who have to register are essentially told they can never repay their debt to society. Our justice system has failed in this. They are tried, convicted and sentenced, many times to lengthy prison sentences and supervision upon release, then after they have completed all this successfully they are essentially asked to continue their sentence for the rest of their lives. We have no doubt grouped them into the same category as murderers and given them a life sentence. The registry has not proven to protect lives or reduce the crime rate. Again just another way to create more bureaucracy for our insatiable bloated government.
