I am at a complete lost, we tax payers are paying their rent. Let me get this straight if I go out and commit a sex crime act the state will pay my rent for life. And I say for life because we all know , marked as a sex offender no one will hire. What has happen to us are we brain dead or just sitting on the curb barking at the moon. Love what Hinkle said, help them get back on their feet. Someone should do an audit on his records and have him show us this program is working. These guys are on a global positiong tracking system let them sleep under a bridge for free. How many good working law abiding people are working and struggling to make it. Lets all go rob a bank or do something we are not suppose to do, so we can get our rent payed by the state. Hinkle should give us stats and show us this studpid program is working.

Where I live some repeat offenders, who don't pay their fines because of traffic violations must also wear global positioning ankle bracelets .... that means they can't swim or bathe is a bathtub wearing that electronic device. That's just crazy !

As for sex offenders, if they already paid their due time in prison, why should the be required to wear the monitored ankle bracelet ? I think that crazy too !
Hey if they don't have a job and only live outside with no residence, okay, maybe then they should wear a ankle monitor, otherwise I see no reason why they should be punished for life, especially if they are a one time sexual offender ..... more than likely the ex-con was stupid and made a terrible crime in harming another human being..... I don't think each ex-con who is a sex-offender should be shoved into the same box with the sickos who prey on young children. The cases are varied from minor to major and should be treated individually as such.....okay, just my 2-cents
