What makes school zones “safe” for children?

[ – 5/11/21]

Dear Members and Advocates,

What makes school zones “safe” for children?

Residency restrictions and proximity ordinances preventing persons required to register as sex offenders from living or even entering within thousands of feet of a school somehow create the illusion that once inside the exclusion zone, our children will be safe from sexual assault. Nothing can be further from the truth. We see this example over and over again, most recently in the case of a Tampa, Florida teacher who was sentenced to 15 years in prison yesterday for secretly recording more than 125 of his students changing clothes. The day before, a different teacher in Tampa was arrested for having a sexual relationship with a minor student.

Ironically, the schools where the crimes took place were within a “safety zone”. The safety zone is established by County Ordinance Section 36-307, as an area around certain places, including public and private schools, where a “predatory individual” cannot be present. According to the definitions in the ordinance “Predatory individuals” shall mean sexual offenders, sexually violent predators and sexual predators. Here the “predatory individuals” were teachers.

These so called “safety zones” derived from residency restrictions and proximity ordinances are about as effective as a condom full of holes. All that truly does is create a false sense of security allowing predatory individuals that are not on the Registry to operate right under the community’s noses.

Yes I said it – The Registry is society’s ruptured condom…it does nothing to keep the bad out of it.

The only reason for theses safety zones is to keep sex offenders from moving into their nice little neighborhoods this has nothing to do with protecting children it’s just another form of banishment.
Another reason for theses safety zones is to flush out sex offenders living productive lives in Society.
Law enforcement hates to see sex offenders with really good jobs, nice houses, beautiful wives and family members who support them.
I dont know if its jealousy or hatred but they’ll go out of their way to ruin certain peoples lives by sending notifications to people’s neighborhoods or showing up at peoples jobs supposedly because their never home when they tryd to do their compliance checks.
And last but not least they’ll tell peoples wives or significant others that their being with a pedophile or rapist and she should leave ASAP for the safety of her and her children

Good luck 😇👌

This is no surprise since it is well known that over 95% of arrests and convictions for sex offenses are of people with no prior arrest or conviction for a sex offense and so they are not on any registries. Every child is 20 times more likely to be offended by one of their trusted people of authority that have 100% clean records, then to ever be touched by someone that is required to be on the registry. And it has been this way for many decades, even from before the first registry was created.

Florida. Enough said.

Bullying children of people forced to register sure is teaching the next generation on the status quo: hate, bully, and vengeance is entitled to you lil buddy.

While schools are to busy checking the list they fail to see abuse happening under their noses by people already in the school. At least Einstein understood insanity; while these people double down on it.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
