'Look out for the residents'

Print Article

I have done some research into the placement of Steven Schuelke into our Beloit neighborhood and have found more questions than answers.

Primarily, there was an act that was passed and enacted March 2, 2016 which requires Sexually Violent Persons to be released into there own county after release from Sand Ridge. This is Act 156 and is mentioned in Section 14 980.135 of our State Statutes. Maybe I'm interpreting this wrong, but I've sent emails to a couple of senators and haven't heard I'm wrong yet.

Also, and I'm probably stretching it here, but this neighborhood is zoned residential. Supposedly this man and others that have been placed here are essentially "under judicial detainment and under the supervision of sworn officers are included in the Detention Facilities category".

We were told at the meeting at City Hall that these offenders are subject to GPS monitoring and can only leave for specific reasons. Sounds like a Detention Center to me, but I would think there would have or should have been public input before that should happen and possibly a zoning change for this house.

The owner is in Waukesha, so I'm sure they don't care about us.

I would just like someone to look out for the residents of our community, instead of acting like their hands are tied.
