your opinions.......

Basically, the "developers", two young college students, have hit upon what they consider to be a "great idea that is long overdue".
They are developing a community that will be "sex offender free"

When asked in a television interview, "How to you check potential home buyrs? Background check? Fingerprinting? Interview?" they responded "The state of Texas requires all sex offenders to register on a list that is public information, and we check them against that list".

Ummmm, so is that enough to list a development "sex offender" free?

Personaly, i think it's nothing more than a marketing pile of shit.
1. I doubt it's legal. Why do people who have served time for a crime that's in a certain catagory get treated differently than other criminals? Although I don't see the ACLU running to protect anybody here....

2. I wonder what happens if, God forbid, somebody does get kidnapped, raped or killed in the neighborhood by a "sex offender". Are the developers liable? After all, they are the ones who are doing the marketing.

3. What's the difference between a sex offender and a murderer, or rapist, or other violent criminal? Why can they be segregated?

4. Can i set up a "Gay & Lesbian free" development? How about one that prohibits Blacks or other minorities? How about one that prohibits Jews, or Muslims? How about Low income people? What if i can "prove" a correlation between a group and violent crimes? Can I start excluding them?

While I am in NO way condoning the activities of "sex offenders", I am also thinking that, as human beings, we have to understand that if we are going to "rehabilitate" violent criminals, and then release them back into society, we cannot expect them to live as second class citizens at the same time. If they are "rehabilited" enough to release into society, then shouldn't they be at least allowed to TRY to fit in?

Why is this ok? Is it because it's the latest "hot topic" in the media because of a single recent event? Or is it really a problem?

An interesting conundrum.........

there is no rehabilitation for child molesters and rapos. i used to work in a prison and the whiniest pieces of shit there are sex offenders. most of them place the blame for what they do on the victims. think about it if someone is attracted to kids or has to use violence to get laid thier preference is not going to change any more than your preference for adult females(i hope). if you are into adult females you are not going to go gay or get into kids etc.
