It was horrible to discover that Suffolk County was actually thinking of placing a homeless shelder for sex offenders on Gazza Blvd. This location is two blocks from a number of children's birthday party locations, three blocks from Adventureland. Smack dab in the middle of the Half Hollow Hills School District. How Suffolk County could even think of this is absurd. What is further blows the mind is the only solution is to give them $90 a night to stay in a local motel.

What is further criminal is that while the Farmingdale School district got the message out, the Half Hollow Hills School District where this facility would have been located in remained silent. No Broadcasts, No E-Mails, not even a note on it's webpage. That district so often forgets about it's Town of Babylon residents it's shamefull. The School District recently got veryinvolved with the town of huntington's proposed legislature change but did not even lift a pencil with regards to the possibility of housing 35 sex offenders in it's district. How can they do this. The answer, it did not concern the town of Huntington. Shame on you Half Hollow Hills

I guess the question is -where do they go? No matter what town you place them in, there is going to be a school, a party place, a park, etc. NO ONE wants them and I am from F'dale. I think I would rather have them in one place together, then give them hotel voucher thing. Probably too, depending on what level offender they were. In the end, there is no easy answer as where they should go, because there is that question if high level offenders are ever cured. I think alot of people would be surprised on how many are living in their towns. Just check the state registry. BUT do check what they were in for and what level they are before freaking out.

Rather than put them in a location where there are plenty of children who go to a Park without their parents. Rather than give them $ 90 per day. Put a GPS device on them and make sure they stay away from places where children gather. A GPS a little Software and you have a Child Molester Tracking System.

No, I don't want them, does anyone. But putting them in a location where there are children some of which are dropped there becuase it is to be a safe place is beyond stupidity. Why not give them jobs as washroom attendants at the local movie house.

Here in Miami, Florida, we have them living under a bridge. Over 70 sex offenders are unsupervised living in the shadows. Sexual assaults are common here and I wonder why? Keep them as supervised as possible. Otherwise you will have a high number of sexual assaults that your county government can deny has anything to do with putting them in motels and policing themselves.
