Everyone who comments should search on line for the Broward County Board of Commissioners S_x Offender and S_x Predator Residence Task Force: "Final Report; S_xual Offender & S_xual Predator Residence Task Force" August 25, 2009. Lauren Book, Ron Book's daughter that was abused by her Nanny, sat on that board and has no excuse to not know the evidence behind it's findings, and neither does Ron Book. His malevolent willful ignorance and refusal to accept fact endangers Florida.
This isn't about sympathy for s_x offenders, it's about protecting children. Just read the report from the task force, and read the roster of members - these aren't sympathizers. The California S_x Offender Management Board - a state agency - has it's report on homelessness available for online reading or download. The Colorado S_x Offender Management Board also makes it's "Colorado Living Arrangements . . ." available on line. The 2007 Kansas S_x Offender Policy Board report recommended, and the legislature implemented a permanent moratorium on local establishment of residency restrictions. Patty Wetterling, mother of Jacob Wetterling and certainly can't be accused of being a sympathizer, posted a clear statement against residency restrictions because evidence has shown they increase the likelihood of recidivism. Her statement is available on the Jacob Wetterling Resource Center website.
