Can't they just live IN the schools?
This probably won't come as much of a surprise, but the American Civil Liberties Union of Pennsylvania and the Pennsylvania Institutional Law Project are going to court to oppose Allegheny County's rules on where registered sex offenders are allowed to live. The county ordinance, approved last fall, would prohibit these rapists and other low-lifes from living within 2,500 feet of schools, licensed child-care facilities, community centers and parks. The ACLU claims the ordinance is an after-the-fact punishment and that the offenders would have nearly no place to live in the county. To their first point, I would reply, "Who cares?" To the second, I would say, "BS." I guarantee that there are plenty of places to live in Allegheny County that are NOT within a half-mile of schools, parks, etc. Granted, my part of Washington County is more sparsely populated than most of Allegheny County, but I'd have to travel miles to get to any of those places mentioned in the ordinance. And I'm a lot more concerned with the safety of our kids than whether Paulie the Pedophile can find a nice, two-bedroom apartment. Here's an idea for you pedophile rapists: Don't sexually abuse kids in the first place. Then you can live anywhere you want.
