The University of Washington in Seattle is pushing for the eviction of more than a dozen sex offenders who live in supervised rooming houses near campus. They have no history of causing problems, but the school still wants them out of the area.Podcast here after 3 p.m.
Ties in to my previous post Have We Gone Too Far?
It's an interesting story - the landlady prefers these tenants to freshman / sophomore college students (who she describes as brats) and she takes her responsibility for these offenders seriously. She works closely with the parole / probation folks, and none of her tenants have re-offended. As for the evicted tenants - where will they go? How many will fall through the cracks into homelessness or drifting, with a much higher likelihood of falling back into their old ways, and/or ending up back behind bars.
