The New York Daily News reports today on the controversy over the planned opening of a probation office across the street from St. Ann’s School. Read the piece, comment away:
NY Daily News: Parents of St. Ann’s School…: Not in Binky and Bunky’s schoolyard!
Parents of students at the snooty St. Ann’s School in Brooklyn Heights are outraged at the feds for relocating the U.S. Probation office – and its 1,700 convicted offenders on supervised release – to the same high-rise office building where about 100 kids attend classes.
Chief Judge Raymond Dearie was bombarded with questions hurled by angry and fearful parents at a meeting Wednesday night in the federal courthouse.
They’re angry because they learned of the move recently through a local blog. And they’re fearful – especially of the 69 sex offenders, convicted of downloading or trading kiddie porn, who will be reporting to their officers at 1 Pierrepont St.
