A critic of Prop. 83
|Dan Weintraub has throw his hat into the small ring of critics of Jessica's Law, aka Proposition 83 on the November ballot.|
Are there better ideas? Well, California already has a residency ban that applies to sex offenders convicted of crimes against children, and even uses GPS tracking in selected cases. Doing more to keep truly dangerous sex offenders behind bars -- where they don't need to be monitored with GPS -- would be better. And educating parents to be mindful of the people with whom they leave their children would probably be the most effective deterrent of all.
