Bill proposes to put GPS devices on homeless sex offenders

Published: Wed, December 9, 2009 @ 6:15 p.m.

COLUMBUS — Homeless sex offenders would be required to wear global positioning devices to track their whereabouts, under legislation being considered in the Ohio House.

Rep. Clayton Luckie, a Democrat from the Dayton area, offered House Bill 369 after two women in his district were attacked by the same homeless sex offender.

“There are predators out there that prey on women and children in our society, putting not just the public but our families in danger,” Luckie told members of the House’s Criminal Justice Committee today. “Are there better ways to track and monitor people convicted of major sexual crimes but do not have a permanent address? I believe there is a better way.”

How about on ALL sex offenders and preditors? Lets put chips in their brains too so they cant act out their intentions!
Of course castration is by far cheaper...and so much more fun when done with a rusty butter knife

A homeless man would have that GPS device destroyed on the first day . Why allow him to roam the streets if he is a danger to society ?

I can't think of a bigger waste of money than the gigantic boondoggle selecting only the homeless sexual predators to wear GPS tracking devices would create. The ACLU would be multi-orgasmic over such an issue, and as Habarnero rightly points out, the devices themselves wouldn't exactly have a lengthy life span.

How about if we simply lock up the sex offenders and KEEP them locked up?

I've read this story over and over again. We should not start tagging people. We've taken an act to control cows and sheep...to HUMANS! THIS IS FREAKING WRONG! Think about it. The next step....I jaywalked put a GPS on me.

Why is it that left wing nut cases come up with nutty ideas like this one? If anyone in the ohio house or senate votes yes for this I am telling people to vote no for them in re-election
