Full Title: The Florida county where police post 'sexual predator' road signs outside homes of convicted rapists and child molesters
One Florida county is taking its duty to notify neighbors about sex offenders living in the community to the next level and posting red road side outside the homes of rapists and child molesters.
The sheriff of Bradford County, Florida, decided the reflective signs, which have each offender's name, should be planted on the roadways outside the houses of convicted sexual predators to ward off children and notify parents about potentially-dangerous convicts in the area.
'If it prevents one more victim in my community, I've done my job as sheriff,' Sheriff Gordon Smith told First Coast News.
So far, the sheriff's office has made 18 signs at a cost of $10 apiece.
Captain Brad Smith, the chief of operations for the sheriff's office, told VICE magazine that the state of Florida mandates that police departments keep citizens informed about the sex offenders in the community.

I drive through there all the time. Two of the worst speed traps ever. I believe Mr. Bundy got fried in Bradford County, Starke FL.
They need to have a site for folks who want to donate for his signs!
They get more than enough money through speed traps. They screw everyone who goes through on SR-24/ US 301.
Screw'em, I hate speed traps and pompous cops.
Stupid. If they’re still a threat, they should still be in jail.
I never driven from Gainesville to Middleburg without seeing at least 2 people pulled over. It seems to be their main source of revenue. It’s almost entirely rural.
A clear violation of the 8th Amendment. If people are dangerous to a community, a jury of their peers should take care of it at sentencing.
Once a person has served their time, they should be left alone, and should also have all rights restored, including gun rights.
