Registered sex offender Randy Young buys homes throughout Florida and leases them as "habitats" for registered sex offenders.
Critics are up in arms, but Young told HLN’s Dr. Drew Tuesday night that he is protecting the community.
“In the state of Florida, sex offenders are allowed to live as homeless,” Young explained. “In places like Miami, there are more than 200 homeless sex offenders living on the streets. It’s very hard to monitor and supervise. Whereas if they were in homes, then it's fairly easy for the law enforcement to check them out.”
A registered sex offender, who lives at one of Young's homes, called Dr. Drew on the air to tell him how difficult it is for a sex offender to find housing in Florida -- and how Young has provided him much needed help . Hear that portion of the story and more in the video clip above.

If you want to know how bad it is, across the country, all you have to do is look around on the Internet at the articles. We have many on our blog:
And on YouTube, here and here.
Also, why do we only have an online shaming hit-list for ex-sex offenders, a long with residency restrictions, which if you check the facts, do nothing to prevent crime or actually protect anybody, WHY DON'T WE HAVE ONE REGISTRY FOR ALL CRIMINALS so we know ALL SINNERS who live around us? Is the reason because most people would then be on one? Like all the cops, politicians, celebrities and others who also commit sex crimes and are usually not in the media? We are all suppose to be treated equally, are we not?
And believe me, they are coming, sex offender registries are just the test bed, and you can see many more coming and/or existing registries at the link above.
Also, what exactly was the point of this show Dr. Drew? Exploiting people for ratings and money? That is how it appears to me, and you are suppose to be a "doctor?"
In a recent show, Dr. Drew had two other women on his show. One woman's husband was a part of the NAMBLA pedophile group, but the other women, Lynn Gilmore, her husband is not. He was convicted of a sexual crime. But, Dr. Drew splashes the "I MARRIED A PEDOPHILE" text on the screen.
Lynn's husband has NEVER been diagnosed as a pedophile, and Dr. Drew should know that, after all, he is a "doctor" who specializes in sex, is he not? Read Lynn's story here.

And what is up with this? Are you condoning parents to sexualize their children?
