The Mind of IrishWalsh: The Times Just Loves Iowa's Sexual Predators!

Excerpted from this post at The Mind of IrishWalsh

A friend of mine from Long Island recently informed me that the New York Times has started a series of articles on Iowa's groundbreaking sex offender legislation.

Iowa has been driving a bandwagon of states who are drafting laws to keep sex offenders from living within 2000 feet of various locations such as schools, day cares, and churches.

Using these restrictions some cities including my own have pushed sex offenders clean out of their limits and into living in country trailer courts, farm houses, highway motels, tents or their own vehicles. The tighter Iowa towns' laws become the more laws that are being passed in Illinois and Nebraska to avoid a flood of sexual predators entering their states.
