For me, leaving the beautiful island of Miami Beach each day to drive to Florida’s mainland requires driving over the Julia Tuttle bridge and facing the sights of the Sex Offender Colony. Convicted sex offenders released from prison are required to live more than 2,500 feet from schools. In Miami-Dade county this leaves few options. These individuals are issued driver’s licenses with the Julia Tuttle Causeway as their address and advised to live in tents and makeshift shacks under the bridge, where they must abide by strict curfews. Unsurprisingly, this has led to widespread controversy. Watch the video and let us know what you think!
