"There are certain rights you give up if you rape somebody and get convicted."

Don't get convicted. Porblem solved.

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 what 15% of their meal costs, so they'll all start using the tip line on their restaurant receipts to leave passive aggressive racial, sexist and homophobic remarks and then drive off on their zero emission bicycles while they run red lights and block off traffic as they head off to the hospital to have their first born son circumcised, twice, even though it won't matter since the kid is going to grow up to kill a bunch of folks in a mass shooting that wasn't thwarted because the only people left that are still legally able to teach aren't allowed to carry assault rifles to protect the children.  The end.

You forgot to mention that the kid grew up to be a transgenered cop. Otherwise, I think you've got all the bases covered.

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.

How about we just let people who have fully completed their sentences, including probation, get on with their lives and contribute to society.  Do a background check and handle things on a case by case basis.

That is all fine and dandy, Rotter. I think you missed the crux of the story, though. We are talking about illegal brown people janitor types, in our country raping our mothers, daughters, sisters, and wives. Try to keep up.

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 old
Tier 2 - flasher
Tier 3 - legitimate rapist

I don't want to get all "Think of the Children" on you, but I don't want 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.


Fine, let's compromise.  Tier 2A and Tier 2B depending on how good-looking she is.

Just kidding.  You're right, we wouldn't want Tier 2 offenders teaching kids either.  My post was intended to get the ball rolling, not be the final word on the matter (and it was an opportunity to use the phrase "legitimate rapist").

hardinparamedic: Sugarbombs: The only sex offender I've ever known earned his scarlet letter for that.

I know two who got thrown on the registry in Tennessee for statutory rape, both as 18 year olds who were in a relationship with a 16-17 year old, one in the 1970s, one in the 1980s.


It's been changed since then, in some states. for exactly that reason. But getting your name OFF the registry for that reason is harder than getting your name off the FBI's watch list as a suspected terrorist. Because, you know, the children.

You should have thought of that before you had a sexual relationship in the 1970's with a girl who didn't turn 17 when you turned 18, I guess.

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.

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.


Yeah, and your heroes, "the authority", would keep people from teaching if they pee on a wall outside.

Maybe, just maybe, they meet somewhere in the middle.

Huh.
