Last week, city officials proposed a law that could in essence ban sex offenders from the city.

This one is a no-brainer. We’re obviously in complete support of this proposed law. Other communities are doing it, and so should Lockport.

If possible, so should the surrounding communities.

The city has it easy because of the number of churches and schools, key buildings in the banning of sex offenders, all around the area. Other communities won’t be so fortunate because of the amount of space towns and villages are dealing with and how the number of schools and churches. Towns spreading over a large area may only have a handful of schools and churches.

City officials may ban sex offenders from living here, but they have to help law enforcement do everything in their power to catch and prosecute every offender they can.
