Looks like they will have to let out another sex offender to make room for this guy.

Anyone know if the shooter survived???

This happened in Bellingham, WA some months ago. Two registered offenders were given the taste of shotgun justice.

The result was that the county planned to reduce the accuracy of the addresses on the lists.

So now all you know is that a level III offender now lives at 001-500 Main Street. It could be your neighbor, old man Withersford down the street, or that new guy who moved in next to the playground. Don't trust any of them! Any one of them could be thinking dirty thoughts about your little Suzy.

If he hadn't fatally shot himself in the head with a .45, that is.

It's 001-500 Maple Street.

Actually that's a fairly good solution. I don't think killing child molesters should warrant pulling the list. The killer was looking to play God and would have found one way or another. Probably abortion doctors or Fox News correspondents otherwise.

Yeah, because murder is okay when no one likes the victim.

Sex offender registeries are bullshiat. What ever happened to do the crime, do the time? Not do the crime and have the crime follow you around everywhere you go so you can no longer have a life. Also, depending on the state, people can be registered as sex offenders for crimes like, sleeping with a 17 year old if you are eighteen, or allegedly kidnapping your own kids. There is a whole litany of reasons why sex offender registeries are bullshiat.

I hate making "ditto" posts, but here goes anyway, from another thread:

006-04-17 12:53:29 AM BooBoo KittyFark [TotalFark]

So here is what willywanka wrote in an earlier thread on this topic. I would end up saying pretty much the same thing, but he said it all so eleoquently already, and I'm lazy.

"So now its possible that a 19 year old now faces premeditated double murder.

wo dead guys, whose previous sins sealed their fate beyond the punishment they had already received at the hand of the law.

And now this kid faces years in jail (and judging by that pic of him, if that does happen, a whole new chapter of years of molestation and rape are in store for him).

And all for what? Kids whos lives will not be made any better because of his actions? Yeah, this one is just lovely...double murder, 19 year olds ruining their lives, and two guys dead not because of what they did, but what they might have done later.

So why bother letting them out of jail in the first place? If letting them out is just a means of letting the public punish them a second time, and they get to spend the rest of their lives in fear of vigilante justice, why let them out?

And also, its a horrible stigma for someone who is actually trying to rehabilitate themselves. They see people who don't even know them, people they've never met or talked to in their lives, calling them monster and animal, threatening to beat them, to kill them, sending hate mail, making it impossible to live even a livable, never mind normal life, dealing with attempts on their lives, and finally knowing that at any moment, someone they don't even know is going to shut their lights out.

Now, with that kind of psychological strain, with that kind of general impression that they are monsters who don't deserve to live, regardless of whether they are trying to better themselves, whether they actually pose a threat...with those cards stacked, what's the point of even fighting the demons? When some deranged kid's just going to put a bullet through your head anyway, and other people on the internet are going to clap for him and say "nice job"?

Like I said, vigilanteism is what it is, and the crimes of the victim are not going to change that."

Killing sex offenders is a horrible idea. For every sicko pervert there's some guy who was labelled a sex offender because he was caught in high school taking one cell phone picture of one person.

The sex offender registry lists the crimes that the people committed along with their addresses and usually photos. You'll need to understand your legalese jargon to know exactly what crime they committed, but stuff like "First degree sexual assault on a person under 13" is pretty self-explanatory. I've gone on my list and checked out the freaks in my neighborhood.

Perhaps, perhaps not. It could be argued that "suprise sex" and aggressive pedophilia is a form of mental murder.

Officers heard a gunshot and found Marshall with a massive head wound in a window seat 13 rows behind the driver, Procopio said. He was rushed to Boston Medical Center where he was pronounced dead at 11:24 p.m.

I'm not sure that's true. Then again, I'm not sure that's false. Hopefully this isn't an either/or choice many of us will be faced with.

Of course, I'm not sure if your point is that murder is worse or that murder is somehow "better". Seriously the whole thing is just farked up.

Such as seeing someone you loved touched and encouraged to give fellatio at 13 years old, by a police officer who was the father of one of her closest friends? Please, expand. I am curious on your expert opinion.

Actualy it's lower than for drug and violent offenders. Around 20% last I checked.

Do you really think nutcases like this (or, really, most of the population of the world) bothers to pay attention beyond "sexual offender" when they hear/read it? You've got way more confidence in the intellectual capabilities of the general population than I do.

A very good point. My position is that there is a huge difference between our justice system throwing a massive book at them and some jackass going off on his own to muder them.

There are definitely plenty of sick farks that deserve these lists. There are also plenty of normal people who don't but end up on them anyway.

Well considering the guy went through the trouble to track down and murder them, he obviously put some planning into it, and considering that there are probaby over 100 sex offenders in your area code at any given location, he probably chose his victims selectively.

Pretty simple question.

The only sane position to take in this case. Just because you don't like someone, doesn't mean their murder is "ok".

the recidivism for child molesters is somewhere between 1/3 and 1/2 over the long term, depending on the study and lacale. Recidivism for non-child related sex crimes tends to be somewhat lower, between 1/4 and 1/3, with some studies showing long term recidivism as low as 1/10 or below, though those are thought to be the exceptsions.
