Onorato signs sex offenders law - Pittsburgh Tribune-Review Allegheny County Chief Executive Dan Onorato today signed into law an ordinance that prohibits registered sexual offenders from living within 2,500 feet of a school, child care center, community center, public park or playground.How will this be enforced? You bet that there are questions.
Questions of enforcement are everywhere.
Plus, we have 'grandfathered' sex offenders. That is an interesting concept.
The distance of 2,500 feet is more than 800 yards. That is about a half a mile in distance.
I'd love to see a map that marks circles around all the schools, child care centers, community centers, parks and playgrounds. These circles would stretch out 2,500 feet from those facilities.
This is a project for Google Maps after the election cycle ends.
