San Antonio proposal bans sex offenders from parks
1. Category of problem: Politics
2. Level of problem: Local
3. This article concerns: individuals that are registered sex offenders and families with minors that live near parks.
4. Importance/effect on families/individuals: If the proposal is approved in San Antonio, this new law will affect registered sex offenders because they would be banned from parks and will not be able to live around them unless they are 1,000 feet away. This law will also affect families with minors because it will give them peace that any registered sex offender will be far enough from the park where many kids will be playing.
5. My input: In this article, a new law is being proposed in San Antonio to ban sex offenders from parks. If this law is approved, many families will be more at peace when their kids go out to play because registered sex offenders will not be allowed to live near parks unless they are 1,000 feet away. In my opinion even though there will still be some sex offenders around parks that are not yet caught, this law can still help protect minors from registered sex offenders and prevent any incidents from happening again by the already registered sex offenders.
