Homeless sex offenders living near school
From Eyewitness News:
Outside the Skyview Men's Shelter, the men hang out in the evening for a smoke or a drink.
There are 174 homeless men in the shelter, and as many as 30 at any one time, are serious level two or three registered sex offenders.
They live two blocks from an elementary school.
"Once a sex offender always a sex offender and it's too close to the school," a concerned parent said.
At PS 124, there was a sometimes raucous meeting with city officials and parents who say nobody talked to them before turning a family shelter they embraced, into a men's shelter they're afraid of.
Now parents can't let their kids walk to or from school alone.
