Does This Map Make You Feel Safer ??

This is an interactive map from,which shows where residency restrictions have allowed sex offenders to live within Palm Beach County, Florida. The red zones indicate areas in which sex offenders are permitted to live. The beige areas indicate “buffer” restricted zones.
This is a typical scenario for many such counties across the nation which have imposed such restrictions. How much safer do you feel with these residency restrictions are imposed? Or could it be that these zones are really just a “feel-good” measure?
