Moving sex offenders away from us

Florida has a law that prohibits registered sex offenders from living within a certain distance from schools, churches, and child care centers. In Orlando, some people are using this to evict some 100 offenders from a trailer park by putting a child care center next door for the express purpose of making the sex offenders move.

I agree that we shouldn't let Luther Lector move in next door to a preschool, but this is going too far. They've served their time, and our responsibility now is to keep them from doing it again, not punishing them again just because we can.
