article imageMiami sex offenders living under a bridge

By Leah     Apr 6, 2007 in Lifestyle
Five convicted sex offenders are living under a noisy highway bridge with the state's grudging approval because an ordinance intended to keep predators away from children made it nearly impossible for them to find housing.
This is a joke!!! I cannot believe this is possible. One of them even prays to God that nothing happens to him when he sleeps at night!!
Makes me sick to my stomach! I am sure the innocent kids were praying for the same thing!!!
The conditions are a consequence of laws passed here and elsewhere around the country to bar sex offenders from living near schools, parks and other places children gather. But under a bridge?? How is that safe? These five sex offenders are the only five who are allowed to live outdoors in the state of Florida. Why these 5?
Such a horrible choice made here, but they feel if they drive these offenders so far underground they won't be able to supervise them because they will become so transient, and it won't make anyone safer.
In the article it states about 100 feet away are the bay's blue-green waters, where a family with young children played in the water this week. In the near distance, luxury condominiums rise from the coastline. Yeah, I am sure if those people realized what was staring at them, they wouldn't visit there anymore!!!
