Last month, Ron Book was out with his “Homeless Trust” to count the homeless in Miami-Dade. Yes, literally, to manually count the homeless.
According to this article, the Miami-Dade Homeless Trust counts the homeless twice a year in January and in August, but “tonight’s count is the one that counts for federal funding.” Counts for “federal funding”… no wonder Ron Book is on hand for that one. If it means more money for him, you can be sure he’ll be hands-on.
But what about the stats? The article states, “most recent numbers show that more than 1,000 people are living on the streets in Miami-Dade County.” According to information recently available through the FDLE, there are 457 transient registered sexual offenders or predators in Miami-Dade County.
That would mean that 45% of the homeless population in Miami-Dade County are sex offenders!
So knowing Ron Book despises sex offenders – calls them “monsters” and has said, on record, “I don’t care if they have to live under a bridge or if they have to live somewhere outside Florida” – are we in good hands knowing that the Chairman of the Homeless Trust seeks to harm and punish almost half the people he is responsible for helping?
And it that’s the case, what’s he doing with the more than 60 million dollar annual budget the homeless trust has? Perhaps he’s spending the money on his collection of Olympic torches?
The bottom line is when a society allows one ignorant person to blind them to the fact of the truth it takes a judge to right a wrong the problem is it takes a long time

I also spoke to the Rabbi, I did ask him ,how he can be in room with Ron Book? He listened. yet had no response that I heard or didn’t hear. Rabbi Schiff is a person to call. He will listen.
I have called the homeless trust and spoke to the others in charge . They are not concerned about the sex offenders. They take priority for woman, children. They also have no housing for them other than a jail cell. None of their shelters are within 2500 range. ,..or out of.

I spoke with her, she said I was the FIRST mother to ever talk to her. Can we make a SECOND caller?
Thank you for this, Nancy. Let’s get some calls going!
Also – if their priority is women and children. What about the wives and children of registrants who can’t live with their spouse/parent?
That is exactly my problem….haven’t been able to live with my wife for 5 years because of that. Even though we are in Orlando it still isn’t much easier when you don’t have the income to live wherever you want.
I have to rest peacefully knowing that one day “you reap what you sow” will come right back on Ron Crook and he too, will be homeless one day……and his little daughter too!
Ron Book is reckless and willfully ignorant and he is causing more problems than he hopes to solve. He’s not part of the problem. He IS the problem.
Ben the problem isn’t with Ron Book or his daughter. It is with those on the sex offender registry. People fail to understand their real power. The sex offender registry is a living death, it is evil and it is wrong but look at it in a different way. We have an online list of desperate people. Why not harness that registry to recruit people from use their talents and focus politically and socially in the direction to make real positive change happen? In Orange County California they passed laws to kick me and those like me out of parks and beaches. Problem I saved my son’s life twice because I was there to do so prior to those draconian laws…so this old soldier fought back. The Republicans that pushed these laws woke up a giant. I harnessed all the salons and barbershops to get selected candidates into office in certain districts. Never under-estimate the power of the mouth of a hairdresser. Oh, now I am training other registrants to do the same thing and make good money while doing it. Robert Curtis (949) 872-8768 or email: [email protected]
Excellent comment. Thank you for sharing while giving others hope in where one can feel some kind of normalcy in life, and most importantly standing up for what is just.
As like every soul on earth, they will be held accountable. Money and power will not buy into heaven.
“Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” Galatians 6:7
If it brings you comfort assuming that these evil people will go to hell after they die then fine but I am an atheist and do not believe in nonsense like that. They need to be attacked now on in this time as they ones who are causing so much pain for others.
Who cares if he was a bad parent and allowed his daughter to be abused by someone NOT on any registry. The sex offender registry would have had no effect (although more attention as a parent would have prevented this abuse) and yet he and his now “professional victim” daughter have become hate mongers causing deliberate pain and suffering to countless families including children.
