Within the hour on North Talk Facebook Forum, Hennepin County Comissioner Linda Higgins confirmed data compiled and published by Johnny Northside blog is correct. The data is a list of supervised Level Three Sex Offenders who are currently living in the 55411 and 55412 zip codes. These known and named dirty dogs have found "safe harbor" and have been allowed to live in our over-saturated neighborhood until, for example, neighborhood organizations file a lawsuit; a step strongly endorsed by this blog.
However, as reported by this blog, Hennepin County has told the Minnesota Department of Corrections it will accept no more supervised Level Three Sex Offenders in those two neighborhoods; therefore we have a moratorium in all but official name.
This moratorium continues to be...
...a tenuous and undocumented thing, its existence confirmed only by Facebook conversations which are the source of articles on this blog. Even so, this "rumor of a moratorium" appears to be the most progress North Minneapolis residents have seen upon this issue in decades. Already the question is being pointedly asked: Why only the 55411 and 55412 zip codes?
What about 55405 and 55430? These two zip codes are not primarily North Minneapolis, but do include PIECES of our neighborhood. Commenting on this matter, Linda Higgins said she will have her staff "carefully watch" these zip codes. However, from where this blog is standing, it appears residents in those areas are apparently not under the protection of the tenuous "sex offender ceasefire" covering 55411 and 55412 and MN DOC is allowed to begin packing sex offenders into those areas, negating the point of a "moratorium" (however it is called) existing in the first place.
But with a definite list of names to work from, JNS blog is contemplating next steps. These steps will almost certainly include digging up information about individual sex offenders and the entities who are packing them like sexually-deviant sardines into my neighborhood.
