WI: 65 percent of registered sex offenders approved for Green Bay housing exemption since Nov. 2018

[ – 11/28/19]

Darlene Esquivel did not want Theodore Blazek to be able to live next door.

Blazek, a registered sex offender convicted of possession of child pornography, asked for an exemption to a Green Bay ordinance that bars registered sex offenders with a conviction involving children from living within 1,500 feet of schools, parks, and playgrounds. Blazek declined an on-camera interview, but said he is not a threat and wants to live in the home because he owns it.

Esquivel said she told her nine-year-old daughter about Blazek’s history.

“She’s fearful living in her own home,” Esquivel said of her daughter.

Esquivel lives in a Green Bay neighborhood near Mason Street and Webster Avenue; she was among several residents of the area who asked for Blazek to be denied the exemption.

Blazek was approved for the housing exemption.

Since November of 2018, 65 percent of registered sex offenders who asked for the same exemption in Green Bay have received one.

An approval means the applicant may move into the applied-for residence. The cases are decided by the Green Bay Sex Offender Residence Board, or SORB.

“By looking at all the sexual offenders and seeing their risk profiles and where they’re going to live, we try to manage that within the entire community,” said Dean Gerondale, who chairs the SORB.

She’s soooo right! He should totally be homeless along with the other folks in that 65%! That would make her daughter really safe. They should also make anyone convicted of anything register. Than she can be afraid of everyone!! Oh wait…even people convicted of murder don’t register if they’re released! Green Bay is doing the right thing here by allowing the exemption. But all the “not in my backyard” morons refuse to acknowledge the facts. Shame on her and all her neighbors who caught this mans right to enjoy his freedom in peace.

I would tell her what I’ve been saying for years – if you don’t like it, move yourself. You have absolutely no right and no say in who moves into the houses around you.

Yep, and how about try to mind your own business and stop harassing other families? They have no right to even know he is moving in and certainly no right to have an opinion about it.

If they did, we would all get dossiers on everyone who moves in.

Only corrupt, criminal regimes have Registries.

Blazek looked at pictures. So how does that make him a huge threat to go on a raping rampage? I would bet he is harmless to children in the area. Then you have the problematic mother, scaring her daughter by making up hysterical drivel. I would bet Blazek wishes he never was involved in downloading cp.

We can’t win with all the disinformation about sex offenders.

Well, we don’t know. The guy really might want to have $EX with children every day. But so might the guy across the street. And the one next door.

It is a simple fact that no one needs to know where this guy lives. You have to supervise your children. If you do that, you can have child molesters living all around you. I assume that I do. Nothing to it.

I do think if you call people “$EX offenders” that you help contribute to the witch hunt.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
