Reply To: Reasonable shelter denied to registrants facing horrific storms


Not only sex offenders are being denied their rights in Florida. Just being homeless and refusing to go to a shelter to escape the hurricane will get you forcibly held by authorities for a minimum of 72 hours. I do not believe refusing a shelter is wise, however, I do maintain that an adult has every right to choose for him/herself what they want to do. It is not a crime to refuse shelter! Am I reading too much into this? It seems to me there is a real problem protecting human rights in Florida…and sadly it is a growing problem Nationwide.
