Pier A Sex Offender – Homeless
So how exactly do you “register” a roaming homeless sex offender? I think beeping ID collars are necessary. Like maybe explode when he’s about to “offend”.
From Charles Hack, Jersey Journal:
Man with knife in park turns out to be sex offender
Police arrested an armed sex offender who was sleeping on a bench in Pier A Park early Tuesday morning, police reports said.
Erik A. Davis, 30, was charged with unlawful possession of a weapon, failure to appear for outstanding warrants out of Jersey City and failure to register as a sex offender, reports said.
Police found Davis lying on a bench shortly before 6 a.m., with an 8-inch knife under the bench, reports said. He told police that he sometimes stayed at a Hoboken shelter on Bloomfield Street, and if that was closed, then at Pier A Park, reports said.
Davis denied owning the knife, reports said. Police said they checked the National Crime Information Center and found that him to be a sex offender. When asked, he claimed that he was registered as a sex offender, police said. But after cops asked if he was registered in Hoboken, he changed his story, saying that he does not stay in Hoboken, reports said.
