More proof that 2,000-foot rule fails  clock
Iowa lawmakers too afraid to fix the broken sex-offender residence law


All one needs to do is replace the word Iowa with Oklahoma and it fits like a glove.[^]

New study Results


No significant differences were found in the distances that recidivists and non-recidivists lived
from schools and daycare centers. We compared the proportions of recidivists and nonrecidivists
who lived within common buffer zones. Offenders who lived within 1,000, 1,500, or
2,500 feet of schools or daycare centers were no more likely to reoffend sexually than those who
lived farther away. There was a virtually non-existent correlation between reoffending and
proximity to schools (r = .004; p = .940) or daycares (r = - .043; p = .433). When the distances
to schools and daycares were entered along with risk factors into a logistic regression model,
neither proximity measure was a significant predictor of recidivism.
Proximity to schools and daycares, with other risk factors being comparable, explains virtually
none of the variation in sexual recidivism. Sex offenders who lived within closer proximity to
schools and daycare centers did not reoffend more frequently than those who lived farther away.
These data do not justify the widespread enactment of residential restrictions for sexual
offenders. The time that police and probation officers spend addressing housing issues is likely
to divert law enforcement resources away from behaviors that truly threaten our communities in
order to attend to a problem that simply does not exist. Residence restrictions greatly diminish
housing options for sex offenders, resulting in increased homelessness, transience, and
instability, undermining the very purpose of registries and exacerbating known risk factors for
criminal recidivism. Residence restrictions decisions should be made on an individualized risk
management basis and not legislated.

High school girls take naked pictures of themselves on cell phones and send the pictures to boys in high school.   Manufacturing, distributing and possession of child porn for the girls and possession of child porn for the boys.

Now THATS stupid.
