anwserman: Yes, because pissing in a bush while drunk in college should disqualify you for teaching kids or having a meaningful rest of your life
highwayrun: This is a solution to a problem no one has. If you're a convicted sex offender, you're not getting hired by any school district anyway. Not for any position from assistant janitor to principal. I'm here to tell you, as a former classroom teacher, they fingerprint you and run your criminal background before a final offer is made, so even before Day One the school district is sure you have no record. This is pure Fox fear pandering.
hardinparamedic: Snapper Carr: Considering the loose criteria for being placed on the sex offender registry, I'm not surprised the union would have a problem with it.But but union wants SEX OFFENDERS working with YOUR CHILDREN!We report, YOU Decide....FOX NEWS! FAIR AND BALANCED!!!!!
MrHappyRotter: I was planning to visit this thread and make a comment or two. But then I reviewed the handful of comments in here and anything and everything I was going to say has already been said. I wasn't going to go all snark, I wasn't going to dial up the mockery. In light of this, I probably could go one of those two routes, and I could do it quite successfully. I might even get a few people to click the smart or funny buttons. Likely, at some point, I might even get a reply or two.One of them might be from some poor schmuck whose sarcasmometer is on the fritz. There's always a few of them in every thread. No matter how obvious I make my comments, they latch on to the imaginary boogey man they want to believe is behind the comment and simply cannot resist the temptation to reply.The other(s) are in on the joke. They know the deal, they play along. Either they congratulate me on my post or expound upon it. Maybe they'll be funnier, kudos to you Farker who can take a comment and reply to it with outstanding wit and humor. You deserve all the attention you get and more. Maybe it'll be a half hearted reply, acknowledging that you see what I did there or some variation on one of the other half thousand popular memes rolling around on Fark these days.Regardless of it all, I'll be sure to hit the smart and funny link on your post. People don't use those enough, so hopefully if you even bother to check, you'd see your name, your post, in the funny and smart lists for having spent the time to reply to me. Even if your response was due to your inability to read between the lines, or your joke fell flat, I still love you.In closing, I want to return to the subject matter at hand, rather than my psuedo intellectual meta spiel. I'm sure this is all somehow Obama's fault. He's probably in conspiracy with the Teahadists to criminalize education for rejecting the Muslim faith and creationism. The net effect is that kids will no longer be smart enough to figure out ...
Koalaesq: The judge I clerked for was the Megans Law judge for our county. My favorite story was about a 19 year old who slept with a 17-year-old promising her that if she slept with him she would be in the Crips gang. Problem was he was not really in the Crips. When she found out she pressed charges.
Sugarbombs: The only sex offender I've ever known earned his scarlet letter for that.
ciberido: on violent date rapist would be they fark their date while he or she is drugged with out beating the crap out of them.So.... if I slip a date-rape drug into your drink and then have sex with you after the drug robs you of your control, I'm a level 1 sex offender, but if I stumble across you after you pass out drunk and have sex with you, then I'm a level 2 sex offender? If I deliberately and without your knowledge drug you into the stupor which I then take advantage of, that's a LESSER crime than if you voluntarily drugged yourself into that state?

FAIR AND BALANCED!!!!!It's remarkable how widespread Fox Derangement Syndrome is on Fark. It appears that the mere existence of a non-leftist news outlet is enough to trigger psychosis in those who are susceptible. Let's hope Obamacare can change that.
grimlock1972: I would agree to this so long as what is considered a sex offender is adjusted:not a sex offender:teens having consensual sexstreakersteens sexting each other.Flashers so long as they do not flash kids .teachers who have sex with student who are 16 and older so long as both are consenting.peeing out of doors and getting caught.Sex offenders level 1:molestors ( non child)date rapists ( non violent )Flashers who flash kid on purpose bit do nothing else.Sex offender level 2:Molestors ( child)full on rapists.

Anne.Uumellmahaye: Captain Dan: Why can't both parties just reform the sex offender list? Give it three tiers, and ban Tier 3 offenders from teaching.Tier 1 - 16 year old has sex with 16 year oldTier 2 - flasherTier 3 - legitimate rapistI don't want to get all "Think of the Children" on you, but I don't wa t a flasher teaching my kids. Some perv beast of a woman wearing skirts and no underoos to my kindergartener's circle time? No thank you.
WhyKnot: All you libs and union apologists should cool your tits on blaming foxnews; the below quote is from an abcnews article...http://abcnews.go.com/m/story?id=20650235&ref=https%3A%2F%2F www.google.com%2F"The bill has run into objections from major teachers' unions like the National Education Association and the American Federation of Teachers. In letters to lawmakers, their criticisms included concerns that the measure might jeopardize workers' protections under union contracts.In addition, the NEA wrote that criminal background checks "often have a huge, racially disparate impact" - a reference to critics' complaints that minorities make up a disproportionately high proportion of people convicted of crimes."

CivicMindedFive: The sex-offender label needs a serious overhaul to exclude things like peeing in a bush and some statutory rape where the age differences are very close together. That said, I have little doubt unions would still fight this no matter what because it's what government unions do.
Snapper Carr: Considering the loose criteria for being placed on the sex offender registry, I'm not surprised the union would have a problem with it.
StatelyGreekAutomaton: "There are certain rights you give up if you rape somebody and get convicted."Don't get convicted. Porblem solved.
