City Passes One Of Nation's Toughest Sex Offender Laws

The city of Oviedo unanimously passed one of the toughest sex offender laws in the nation Monday night. The new law says that sex offenders who have committed crimes against children under 16 years old cannot live within 2,500 feet of schools, libraries, parks, playgrounds, day cares and churches.

So what's the point? Are sex offenders incapable of getting into their cars and driving 2500 feet to sit in their cars outside the fence while scanning the crowd for potential victims?

If they were prohibited from being within 2500 feet of a school zone for any reason and their license plates were marked in some way, then crossing guards and police could immediately recognize their presence and take appropriate action.

While I applaud them for this action, more is needed. If a 1/2 mile restraining order is "one of the toughest in the nation" God help us. Maybe if more Eunics were walking the streets this "tough" law would be inconsequential. Sterilization with incarceration.

It's a step in the right direction. It's better than what they have now. And this impacts my choice of where to buy a house and raise a family.

At least if they have to "drive 2500 feet to sit in their cars outside the fence while scanning the crowd for potential victims" they are no longer protected by the privacy of their home. They are visible to the public, especially police officers and interested individuals who are "scanning the crowd" for THEM!

It doesn't stop them from leaving the country illegally...
