Florida's struggle with sex offenders

The Miami Herald last week ran this four-part investigative series, entitled "Predators Among Us," about the badly flawed administration of Florida's Jimmy Ryce Act, which is aimed at confining and treating the state's most dangerous sexual predators.  This Herald editorial from Sunday summarized some of the paper's findings and called upon the Florida legislature to "revisit the Jimmy Ryce Act during its upcoming session and appropriate enough funding to make the act the safety net it is supposed to be."  And, showing the power of effective investigative reporting, now the newpaper reports that "some of Florida's most powerful lawmakers are set to investigate why the law is failing to achieve its mission."
