Cuomo May Ban Sex Offenders From Using MTA Transit
Governor Andrew Cuomo is going to extreme measures to keep New York City's subway system safe.
Many residents and commuters rely on New York City's subway system. It's estimated that millions take the subway every single day in the city and keeping the riders safe will always be a top priority.
According to City Limits, sexual offenses on the subway system were up over 8% in 2017 than the previous year. Those numbers have supposedly increased since then.
NBC New York reports that in Governor Cuomo's State of the State Address, he made a statement about a proposal that would ban repeat and high risk sex offenders from using New York City buses and rail systems temporarily.
Some ague that it would negatively impact these offenders trying to function in society whether it be getting to and from work, support groups or mental healthcare facilities.
Do you think high risk sex offenders should be allowed to take advantage of public transportation in New York?
