BARTOW, Fla. (AP) – People with active warrants in one Florida county might want to think twice about heading to a shelter for Hurricane Irma.

Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd posted on his official Twitter account Wednesday that deputies will be checking identification at the county’s shelters, and anyone with a warrant will be arrested and taken to “the safe and secure shelter called the Polk County Jail.”

Should the sheriff’s efforts during a crisis be outstanding warrants rather than helping those in immediate need during an emergency?

To ban sexual predators during a crisis from a target rich environment?

I’m OK with that.

Guess you’ve never seen what walks in to these shelters.

You can be put on a sex offender’s list for getting caught urinating outdoors or dating a 17 year old when you are 18.

I get the reasoning, but I hope he doesn’t get caught up in a lawsuit.

I see the concept of multitasking and assigning different personnel to different tasks is entirely foreign to you.

As is the concept that protecting children and women from sexual predators is not a priority which decreases during a crisis.

“Should the sheriff’s efforts during a crisis be outstanding warrants rather than helping those in immediate need during an emergency?”

the sheriff is taking common sense measures to prevent the wolves from entering the shelters along with the lambs.

There bad luck. IF they would have been in Houston they would have been welcomed with open arms. NOTHING checked. You could (and were) have been illegal, a terrorist or a rapist on the lam and you were welcomed by the LGBT mayor and Sheriff.

Frickin disgusting in my book. These people should have been checked and if found to be here illegal or had warrants handed over to proper authorities like this fine peace officer in Florida is doing. Helluva way to get rid of your dirt.

Might save a couple predator lives and impressionable psyches - if a sexual predator got caught doing evil in such a place, chances are the kids would be further traumatized from seeing the mangled corpses after the mothers of children got done with them...

Seems like a Sheriff that former Sheriffs David Clarke and Joe Ariapo would endorse.

No mention, though, of what he will do with the illegal aliens that show up... and Florida has tons of them.

Should helping those in immediate need during an emergency include protecting children from sexual predators, or are you just fine and dandy with sexual predators wandering around shelters looking for fresh meat to satisfy their deranged habits?

Yeah, but does that mean that Muslim men can’t be in the shelters?
