Georgia sex offenders live in isolated campgrounds
It's a tough living for the weirdo Sailer-type males who never were able to deal with women or mainstream society, and all too often turn to the dangerous path of pedophilia. If they are not in prison, they have very few places to live. Even homeless shelters are unattainable luxuries because of their crimes.
In Miami, sex offenders are forced to live in tents under a bridge. A little further north in Georgia, sex offenders live in tents in primitive and isolated campgrounds because they too have nowhere else to go, not even a homeless shelter. No running water, no electricity, no luxuries, and hardly any basic essentials, just barely enough to survive.
Would you like to buy your tent now and join their pseudo-communities? If you keep addicted to Sailer's eccentricities, you may join them sooner than you think.
Homeless sex offenders reside in makeshift campground to comply with tough Georgia law
MARIETTA, Georgia - A small group of homeless sex offenders have set up camp in densely wooded area behind a suburban Atlanta office park, directed there by probation officers who say it's a place of last resort for those with nowhere else to go.
The nine sex offenders live in tents surrounding a makeshift fire pit in the trees behind a towering "no trespassing" sign, waiting out their probation sentences as they face numerous living restrictions under one of the toughest sex offender policies in the U.S.
"It's kind of like a mind-game, it's like 'Survivor,'" said William Hawkins, a 34-year-old who said he was directed to the campsite two weeks ago after being released from prison for violating probation for failing to register as a sex offender in Georgia.
The muddy camp on the outskirts of prosperous Cobb County is an unintended consequence of Georgia's sex offender law, which bans the state's 16,000 sex offenders from living, working or loitering within 1,000 feet of schools, churches, parks and other spots where children gather.
It's not the only place in Cobb County where offenders can live — there are hundreds of other sex offenders throughout the county living in compliance with the law. But Ahmed Holt, manager of the state's sex offender administration unit, calls the camp a "last resort" for homeless offenders who can't find another place to live that complies with the law.
