NC: New NC bill would push sex offenders further away from school grounds

[myfox8.com – 2/10/21 – NC residents write and call!]

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (FOX 46 CHARLOTTE) – Right now, in some North Carolina counties, sex offenders can live right beyond 1,000 of the front door of a school due to the way current laws are written. Now, one lawmaker is pushing to make sure they’re further away from those properties.

In some areas, sex offenders could theoretically live right up to the school’s fencing if the yard is big enough, but if Senate Bill 52 passes, sex offenders won’t be able to live 1,000 from the property line or wherever the school’s land ends.

Senator Sawyer said this bill will be voted on next week and she believes it will get bipartisan support.

“My cousin’s daughter was actually kidnapped. She was 14, and a man came up to her and her friend and pulled a gun on them and forced them into a van. Luckily, she fought for the wheel and got away. So the further away people can be from my children, the better,” Stucker said.

And how exactly would this new change would’ve prevented what your cousins daughter experienced? Was the person a registrant? Did he do it form his front/backyard while she was walking by?

Where did this station find this lady? And why did they choose her for her opinion on this story? Did her purported experience regarding her cousin’s daughter (assuming that was true to begin with, though I have my doubts) take place near a school by a registrant who resided within 1000 feet? If not, what in God’s name does this “experience” have to do with residence restrictions?

Two responses to the sponsoring senator’s claims:

1. “Senator Vickie Sawyer had a sex offender who lived in her neighborhood right next to a high school. She says the offender was able to live property-line to property-line next to the high school field because of the way the law is written.”

Not one word about what the person was convicted for or any inappropriate activity (or even allegations) since the person moved there.

2. “It needs to be cleared up which is what this law does, they need to say ‘hey, look, regardless of how you get there if you’re property line is within 1,000 feet of the school property line we ask you not to live there,’’ Sawyer said.

You’re not asking, you’re demanding under threat of excessive fines and/or return to jail.

Can it be shown that actual sex crimes committed by current registrants – already historically and consistently low, contrary to public opinion – had any earthly thing to do with where that registrant resided at the time? Or that said crimes would not have been committed had they resided somewhere else?

I think this bill has far more to do with Senator Sawyer’s property values than “public safety.”

Oh look, another child abuser exploiting children for politically and personal gain…. and I mean child abuser. So far the laws have barely effected me.. but definitely affect my 2 year old daughter. Anyone who makes a law that hurts the mental well being of a child is a child abuser in my eyes.
Question.. what are the laws with us on premise restrictions on schools and daycares? I know certain offenders have the premise restrictions, but I am one of the lucky few who doesn’t. And I have a daughter. Am I allowed to pick up and drop off my daughter at a day care? I can’t find any law against it. Even in local ordinances. Yet I hear of registrants getting arrested for that very thing. I never hear the ending verdict.. but still.. also… Am I allowed to even live with my daughter? The judge okayed it. She wasn’t the victim.. yet nc statute is as followed..
Nc statute 208.17
B It shall be unlawful for any person to conduct any activity at his or her residence where the person:

(1) Accepts a minor or minors into his or her care or custody from another, and

(2) Knows that a person who resides at that same location is required to register under this Article.

(c) A violation of this section is a Class F felony. (2006-247, s. 11(b).)

Sounds like Amber fell into the government propaganda of fearing strangers; while opening up to people in her circle who could actually harm her children. Just because a registrant lives by a school doesn’t mean they are watching kids scroll by on the way to school. I bet that if something happened to a kid they wouldn’t rush out to help because of the hatred caused by immoral people.

North Carolina is awful but Florida’s worse. Leave it to Florida man.
