MS Legislature -- no sex offenders within 5 miles of schools, daycare...
Mississippi Legislature Bill Status

I haven't seen this reported in the MSM, but this is regarding a bill introduced by the MS legislature.

MISSISSIPPI LEGISLATURE

2006 Regular Session

To: Judiciary B

By: Representative Carlton
House Bill 756

AN ACT TO AMEND SECTION 45-33-25, MISSISSIPPI CODE OF 1972, TO PROHIBIT SEX OFFENDERS FROM ESTABLISHING RESIDENCY NEAR SCHOOLS, DAY CARE CENTERS, PARKS OR CERTAIN OTHER AREAS; AND FOR RELATED PURPOSES.

BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MISSISSIPPI:

<cut>

(4) Any person required to register under this chapter shall not establish a permanent or temporary residence in this state within five (5) miles of any school, school property, day care center, park or other area where children may be present. Failure to comply with the provisions of this subsection shall be a violation of this chapter.

1. That'll pretty much keep them out of the state, completely
No way will this one pass constitutional muster.

2. ok, that is just plain silly
five miles? 'or other area where children MAY be present'? hell, children MAY be present anywhere. so, where do they expect these folks to live? i don't approve of this idea at all. it seems like a slippery slope to me. doesn't the constitution have freedom of mobility in it? these restrictions could easily be imposed on other people. political enemies for example.

3. I agree this is extreme
but so many people were supportive of the measures in Miami and elsewhere that would have seen similar restrictions (though not quite as severe).

I can't think of anywhere in the state they could live -- and even if they could, what's to keep a daycare from opening up in 6 months and making them leave?

4. Well, I'm sure passing the law will make people feel good
Enforcing it will be impossible, because there is probably a school, a park, a day care center within 5 miles of just about anywhere.

7. Children "may" be present anywhere
what a joke. Are they confined to topless nightclubs?

10. Didn't Iowa try to do that, and it got struck down?
That law has the effect of forcing them to leave the state, or making it impossible for them to comply with the law, thereby ensuring that they go back to prison.

11. Residency Restrictions
Proven, by countless professionals, Residency Restrictions do NOT work.
We need a whole lot of new laws, but primarily, we need to rid this country of all the IDIOTIC laws now in place pertaining to Sex Offender Registries, and Residency Restrictions.
