    So what do you guys think about people trying to regulate who can live in their neighbor hoods?

    Dosent that go against the U.S.A's whole "home of the free" theme?

    I know its to stop people who have commited crimes to live in "good" communities, but where else will they go? Do people expect them to live in areas of high crime rates where they will feel like its ok to commit crimes?

    I understand both sides of this topic. I just want to know what you guys think.

    I'd rather not have a criminal living in my neighborhood, I feel that once a criminal most likely to remain a criminal :cool:

    I have zero faith that our justice/prison system is capable of rehabilitating anyone. It's a draconian system that needs a major revamping with better minds at the helm at all levels

    There is a neighborhood near my Uncle (outside Indianapolis) that has deed restrictions in place prohibiting non-Police/Fire/EMS people frolm living there or owning a lot. I think they call it "Public Service Acres". ZERO crime. With all the shift work going on, there is always someone coming or going.

    I dont have a neighborhood, i live out in the boondocks. But having a good school system, and keeping property values up tends to keep the rif-raf out. And i dont think the crackheads / theives / etc. really want to live in good areas anyway,too many do gooders watching what goes on, and calling the cops all the time. They dont do well in that invironment, they prefer to live among their own kind. I dated a cop, he always talked about how when there is a shooting / stabbing / robbery / etc. in the hood, there are never any witnesses LOL.....

    I grew up in an Irish neighborhood run by an Irish mobster. The only crime we had there was from his people (which, honestly, wasn't much, they did all their "deeds" outside the neighborhood). After he left, the place went to hell. So, I guess it all depends on the criminal.

    I would hate to live in a Hood like that. My big fear it would be filled with real criminals. Like the Kennedys, Clintons, Obamas, Fondas etc.:D

    Ahhh yes, ol' Whitey, haven't heard that name in a dog's age! Didn't they just get him recently? I wonder if he had enough time to spend his Megabucks winnings...or was that Billy that won?

    Umm, not sure who won.

    Yes, they got him (last year, I think). Last I heard, his trial was postponed for "health" reasons.

    This type of thing has happened before. When I was a kid I remember very well how some folks got heartburn at the thought of a black person moving into their neighborhood.

    In New York State, it is a felony "crime" to pick up a handgun if you don't have a permit. If a person were learning to shoot at a range for the purpose of learning self defense and a cop nailed them for holding a handgun without a permit, I'd probably want to live next to that "criminal".

    Our judicial system releases violent criminals - people who have committed rapes, murders, child molestation, robbery, burglary, arson, etc. That's the problem: these people have to live somewhere because we, as an uncivil society, have not executed them.

    This link will tell you who is in your neighborhood.
    Once someone has served their time, they have the right to live where they please unless it is restricted by law such as a sexual predator next to a school.
