Sex Offender Clusters

Okay, let me see if I get this right ;
You ban sex offenders from living near parks, schools, daycares, libraries, and any other public place where children are.
In most cities, this leaves sex offenders with very limited places in which they are permitted to live.
Now you are surprised when you see sex offenders cluster together into these limited areas? : Colonie forms a task force to break up sex offender clusters.

The Colonie, NY town board voted to form a task force to address the over-concentration of sex offenders at a meeting tonight, according to Town Official Peter Gannon.

Town Supervisor Paula Mahan is proposing a law that would restrict level 2 and 3 sex offenders from living within 1,500 feet of one another. The law would also keep them from living within 1,500 feet of place where children gather.

Gannon says the task force will look at the proposed law and the issues regarding sex offenders in Colonie.
