More New Sex Offenders Than College Grads Under Piccirillo, Dyster Plans

Maybe some of these registered sex offenders are also college graduates and can qualify for the Live NF!, the program that pays college graduates to live in Niagara Falls! L-R RICHARD J COATES, 65 yr, Level 2, JOHN C STRASSER, 59, Level 2,PATRICK M SHEEHAN, 60, level 2, MORGAN E LEE, 61, Level 3


While the bold initiative by Mayor Paul Dyster and his Community Development Director Seth Piccirillo to pay college grads to live in Niagara Falls temporarily has managed to attract just seven lost souls, the encouragement given to registered sexual predators has resulted in a stable population of registered sex offenders numbering 165 as of yesterday, according to

That's nine more than the 156 reported at this time last year, and the new arrivals constitute two more than the seven college grads Piccirillo has managed to scrounge up over the past two years.

Under the Piccirillo plan, recent college grads agreeing to subject themselves to life in Niagara Falls for a period of two years would receive stipends amounting to $3,500 a year.

The dangerous sex offenders are a bit more pricey. Because usually no one will hire them, their entire livelihoods are taxpayer dependent, with subsidized housing, public assistance, and Medicare programs picking up the tab for their food, shelter, and health problems.

A Niagara Falls Reporter review of some of the pedophiles and perverts who now call our fair city home failed to reveal which of the nine moved into town within the last year and if any of them possessed the college degrees that would qualify them for Piccirillo's program.

Because the failure of the Piccirillo program, following the national and universally positive media attention it received when it first went into effect two years ago, is something of an embarrassment, and – since Dyster is already using "the seven" college grads the city is paying to live here - to prop up city population numbers for purposes of the U.S. Census Bureau – perhaps it could be ascertained if the nine new sexual predators have degrees and could also get a $3,500 annual stipend.

The unbridled success of the mayor's pervert program has not gotten the attention it deserves in the mainstream media when compared to the press generated by the relatively failed Piccirillo plan.
