I wouldn't go as far as you, but I agree that they need to be monitored for the rest of their lives. They don't change, they don't rehabilitate, and castration doesn't stop them from attacking.

Homeless sex offenders they say? So basicaly instead of working they were out raping inocent people.Why house them at all? The story said the trailer is were they return to at night so they must be out perving during they day,how is that monitoring them?
They will just rape between the hours of 8-5.

In the second paragraph, the article states, "The name is actually a misnomer because both the (Riverhead) jail and the Riverhead county center are just across the Peconic River in Southampton Town."
The Riverhead jail is referred to as the Riverhead jail because it has a "Riverhead, NY 11901" mailing address. Places that have a "Riverhead, NY 11901" mailing address that are not in the Hamlet of Riverhead in the Town of Riverhead are in the Hamlet of Northampton, the Hamlet of Riverside and the Hamlet of Flanders in the Town of Southampton, as well as in the Hamlet of Baiting Hollow, the Hamlet of Northville and the Hamlet of Aquebogue in the Town of Riverhead.
The Riverhead jail is in Riverside ("Riverhead, NY 11901" mailing address).
In other words, if you want to send a letter to the Riverhead jail, you would address this letter to "Riverhead, NY 11901"; however, if you want to actually go to the Riverhead jail, you would go to Riverside.
It is important to understand that Riverside is one of those many villages and hamlets on Long Island where none of the places in the community have the hamlet name in their mailing address.
For those who may not be familiar with Riverside:
Riverside is a hamlet (an unincorporated area) in the northwest section of the Town of Southampton, in the southeast part of Suffolk County, along the Southampton/Riverhead and the Southampton/Brookhaven town lines.
Beginning on the north and moving in a clockwise direction, the Hamlet of Riverside in the Town of Southampton is bordered on the north by the Hamlet of Riverhead in the Town of Riverhead (the Southampton/Riverhead town line); on the east by the Hamlet of Flanders; on the south by the Hamlet of Westhampton; and, on the west by the Hamlet of Calverton partly in the Town of Brookhaven and partly in the Town of Riverhead (the Southampton/Brookhaven and the Southampton/Riverhead town line).

Trying again, and this time with the proper spacing:
