The term "sex offender" in Texas can be several differant issues. Is it the 50 year old man or woman who prays on a 9 year old. Or is it a 18 year old man or woman who has a 16 year old partner who gets angry or the parents get angry. Is it the person who stops their car and urinates only to find out later someone saw and they are "tracked" for the rest of their lives. Don't get me wrong I don't what a true "sex offender" anywhere around my kids just as well. But if you find out about one in your area, please research the circumstance before you come to an answer. Texas law is Texas law, but many times all these people are put in the same boat.

not all crimes are the same. Many kids are now being punished for committing crimes that used to be considered playing doctor. My spouse is a good man that messed up when he was 13. He even told on imself when he discovered what he did was wrong. When does our punishment end? Grown men creating offences get off scott free...but kids are the ones being punished the most. Our government is messed up. By all means track them, but making them homeless will make tracking them impossible. or what happens to the children of these people? You force them to live in a highly concentrated area of sex offenders? That makes sense. Lets concentrate areas of them. You people are fear driven and ignorant. And yes I have children. I just watch over mine.

i'm in total agreement. no one ever thinks about the kids of someone whose been accused. but yet, its supposed to be about protecting them. tell me how forcing the kids to live as barely getting by helps them to deal with anything they've already been through. the parent is paying dearly, isnt that enough. lets not punish the kids too.

Unfortunately my kids were "rezoned" from Johnson Elem to the brand new McGowen Elementary, this was ok at first, it's brand new they'd be a few of the first students to attend the school THEN I did my routine sex offender search, there is a sex offender 102 ft away from the new school. I contacted McKinney ISD about this, the new principal, the police departments safety officer and a few people in my neighborhood. The people it should really matter to, it doesn't. I asked specific questions as to why a brand new school was built across the street from a sex predator, my questions were not answered and I got the usual blow off of we share your concerns. I think everyone should know there is a sex offender across the street. The principal stated that there will be a book kept in the front office for parents to read that is updated with this information, OK, what about the parents that work and don't go into the office to look into this book? I mentioned making flyers and sending them home with every student but again, i was left without answers. I don't understand why they would build a school across the street from a sex offender and then have no answers as to why. The school is open, if he wanted he could walk across the school to the playground and grab your child. It could happen to anyones child. If you share my concern please respond or pass this message on to anyone you know going to this school PLEASE. http://www.mckinneypolice.org/Associations/14... isn't the 18 yr old slept with the 16 yr old, this is a true sexual predator...
