WI: Rhinelander Common Council approves new sex offenders ordinance

[starjournalnow.com – 8/13/19]

The Rhinelander Common Council met Monday and held the final public hearing for the new sex offender ordinance. No concerns or questions regarding the ordinance were brought forth at the public hearing, and the council approved the new ordinance unanimously.

The sex offender ordinance limits registered sex offender housing and activity areas within proximity to places where children are present such as schools, playgrounds and parks. It also limits holiday events in which sex offenders can participate such as disallowing handing out candy to trick-or-treaters or dressing as Santa Claus or the Easter Bunny.

    Different because it has an appeal process? Pretty sure the board’s standard response to all appeals can be summed up as “Leave town, pervert.”

    —-“One of the provisions within the ordinance that guarantees the due process rights of offenders is to create a residency restrictions appeal board so that folks who find the restrictions that we’ve imposed unnecessarily harsh given their particular circumstances, that they have a resource to go to and talk about their appeal,” city administrator Daniel Guild explained.”—-

    This appeal board will guarantee the due process rights – I don’t think so if they are made up of persons in the community. A judge maybe but not a fire fighter etc – what does a fire fighter know about “due process”? Oh, and the board may be made up of persons who created and voted in this ordinance – well that’s fair I would say.

    Do they have these so very fair instruments in California?
    Any discussion on this s***

  4. Bo

    Does wi have an advocacy organization? I wonder how wi is different for california on presence restrictions

    WTF?? The Council apparently had little or no awareness of what they were voting on …. but they voted to approve it anyway. And the Mayor’s response is, “If you [Councilmen] have any questions or concerns, do your research, educate yourselves [Council men], and bring up your concerns at the next meeting.”.
    Is this S.O.P. for WI??
    Shoot first, ask questions later??

      David… Twas thinking the same thing.
      Scumbag politicians. Their All The Same regardless of State. Self serving career paths.
      Always quick as hell to bring the Hammer down. 20+ years to take a look and see what they actually struck and how bad the damage is.

        Scumbag is a bit strong for cowards posing as tyrants with control over the situation. The move merely guarantees the next sex offender will come from within. Every municipality attempts the same tactic once a release placement becomes a possibility.
        Rhinelander is a small tourist town centered around fishing or native American Indians.
        Some may be just happy getting some press.

    Wisconsin has started using these appeal boards along with there residency restrictions. narsol attorneys from Illinois are fighting successfully in southern Wisconsin. The results of the fight is reducing mm or 1000 foot restrictions back down to five hundred foot restrictions and implementing these appeal boards. It must give them some buffer from lawsuits. Milwaukee was successful in reducing residency restrictions. I believe they left them on the books but they now ignore them. Most of Wisconsin has some sort of residency restriction varying from 500 to 2000 feet. Halloween, school restrictions, photograph restrictions, internet identifiers, and I’m glad I use a Kindle because I cannot go to the library in my town.

      @jm from wi – “… I’m glad I use a Kindle because I cannot go to the library in my town.”

      I wonder how they can get away with this sort of thing, as well as excluding people from parks and other places that are supported by their tax dollars…

      • Will Allen

        Well, they are crooks and thieves.They get away with committing crimes because they have enough other crooks and thieves agreeing and supporting them. Just a bunch of scumbags. Bottom line.

        • jm from wi

          As well as multitudes of uninformed people.

        • Tim in WI

          There is no LAW forbidding registrants from public libraries in WI.
          However once you’re identified ( been there) the cops may be forced to get into the situation once they’re called by library staff. Librarians may sneer and cops will watch but they may not remove you. They may encourage but they may not boot you. I made a point of letting them know it too.
          Six years later one of the cops who responded was busted and convicted for sex assault in his squad car.
          BTW- I was identified by a white, well dressed male librarian who was on the jury that convicted me. I believe he was like protecting his turf. Those who love children often take jobs where those children are contactable.
          My actual reason for going was to research DNA analyses.

          Wis. does not have certain residency restrictions, however various cities do. New Berlin has a loitering restriction which puts a grey area on libraries etc.
          The definition of loitering is OK however the qualifications tend to eliminate use of the loitering definition.
          Life on the registry is complicated. Thankfull for higher education to navigate life.
