The ACLU’s Offensive Defense Of Sex Offenders
I read this morning that the ACLU does not believe there are enough sex offenders living in our neighborhoods. The City of Lynn, Massachusetts, has a sex offender ordinance which declares that registered sex offenders may not live within 1,000 feet of a school, park or recreational facility. Sounds like a good rule to me. The last thing any parent should have to worry about is having a child molester living on a house right next to their child’s school. We’d all like to think that our children will be safe as they walk to school or little league, and the Lynn law helps ensure the safety of our children.
So why would the ACLU fight against it? Well, despite the ACLU’s stated mission to protect our freedoms, they actually function as a shock group for the left. But even with their real goal, how could anyone argue in favor of putting sex offenders near the very children who they have abused?
The ACLU claims the law discriminates against sex offenders. They are right, and so is the law.
