Miami Beach Sex Offender Laws

With sex offenders accused of two recent high-profile murders in the state, the city of Miami Beach, Fla., is considering a law that would effectively run register offenders out of town. The city's mayor — and the opposition — talk about balancing public safety and civil liberties.
