I CANNOT BELIEVE THAT I AM READING THIS AND THAT RELATIVELY INTELLIGENT PEOPLE THINK THIS IS A SOLUTION FOR SEX OFFENDER HOUSING. THESE PEOPLE DO THESE THINGS BECAUSE THEY LIKE TO. SEND THEM TO A HOUSING PLAN IN THE MIDDLE OF THE MOHAVE DESERT AND LET THEM STALK ONE ANOTHER. THEY CANNOT BE CURED THEY CANNOT HAVE THEIR BEHAVIOR MODIFIED.

What I think is that they put them mostly in low income residential zone or those houses that are for veteranans ,because if you look in the towns map you dont see them place in areas near where there are town offices.I think that the town officials should think about everybody and not only about themselfs and their neighbors.

I don't know, but even though they are perported to be monitoring these offenders, the idea of having people who are predatory by nature in areas that are rather deserted just doesn't leave me with a warm and fuzzy feeling deep down. It seems almost like they are just setting a predator down in an area that will be better for them to drag their prey back to.

This situation has no easy solutions that I can see though.....

It, absolutely, drives me insane that my hard-earned tax dollars have to go to provide housing for the likes of these offenders. If they don't have family they can live with, then keep them in jail. Nobody wants them in their neighborhoods and, as far as I am concerned, they forfeited all rights when they committed these heinous acts. They will never be rehabilitated and they need to be kept away from society as much as possible. They are the lowest form of life on earth and do not deserve anything at all in any form.

Isn't part of Megan's Law that they have to make it public knowledge where these sex offenders are residing? So they should be disclosing where these trailers are at all times. Why don't these offenders have ankle monitors? I think they should seriously consider ankle monitors for security and tracking purposes. It is just a thought.

Put them on an Island all by themselves so they can molest each other and not innocent children.
