He probably thinks it will cover the gays, because he probably thinks all gays are sex offenders.

You can't go wrong pandering to the

img.fark.net

....crowd.

For one thing, until they can specify what the offense was, the "sex offender" designation is meaningless. Did the guy rape a kid or was he caught behind the Viper Room taking a piss? And if these people did their time, they're supposed to move on with their lives or else keep them in prison. And why this type of offense only? Why not a Scarlet Letter on murderers or drug dealers? This is shameless pandering.

The on-line registry is a lot more fair than the mere stamp "sex offender," at least in South Carolina which I would assume is 5-10 years behind the rest of the country.  They describe the age of offense, age of victim, the crime, severity, and has designations for violence and predatory behavior.

But honestly, this license plate thing?  There's notifying the public and there's flaunting it.

Came here to say something similar.  Step one: pass licence plate law.  Step two: pass law declaring homosexuality a "sex offense."  Step three: TAXED ENOUGH ALREADY

Some states aren't like that though. Again though, why aren't legislatures pushing for the same thing for other violent crimes? It's just pandering to the "think of the children!" crowd and anyone who questions it is down with child rape.

Actually, you sound logical.

Sure thing Rep. Hill. While we're at it, why don't we have license plates that say GUN OWNER, too? You know... for the children.

Is a "fiscal conservative?"

Let me name 3 ways he just violated his own "beliefs:"

- The DMV bureaucracy needed to make sure the stamps get on the licenses properly.
- The Judicial bureaucracy needed to deal with the mistakes the DMV bureaucracy makes (including defamation lawsuits that arise with the $8 workers get it wrong).
- The fact that someone what got caught having sex with his 16 year old girlfriend (when he was 18) will now find it even HARDER to get a job and will be forced to live on the government dole.

I wish CT would do this with the people with multiple DUI's, and are still allowed to drive. Obviously they would need to use a DUI stamp, not one that says sex offender.

Not true.  Pedophillia is something quite different from hetero and homosexuality.

I am convinced that people who propose this type of things are actually people who would love to tattoo their entire body but are repressing it. So they project that out and try to mark other people with various signs and symbols. It's the modern version of the Scarlett Letter. These people just have to find someone to mark, someone, anyone will do. Maybe in the alternative it come from dogs marking their territory. I dunno. I simply find the psychology plainly weird.

At some point this whole sex offender nonsense will get to the supreme court and probably be struck down.

In Ohio, a repeat DUI offender gets a yellow licence plate. They're purdy.

Why not make them wear pink triangle badges instead? I mean, if you've got to persecute people based on an arbitrary distinction, you might as well go all the way and draw directly from the source of your inspiration.

Yet.

Persecution always works best at first because they never go after large groups or sympathetic groups.  It's always the maligned and distrusted groups that persecution fixates on first.

And when you protest against that persecution, you get maligned in turn, called sympathizer and abettor or closet member of that targeted group.  So people don't stand up for the persecuted out of fear.

It's easy to yell 'godwin' at my post, but this is a sincere case of similar methods and thinking to that group from the 30s and 40s.

That's the problem with these sorts of laws, fighting them is political suicide.   None of the sober thought required for good governance actually gets done because nobody wants to see attack ads about how they voted to support pedophiles.

My boss is also a Christian minister. I just had an interesting conversation with him. Turns out, he's a big equal rights supporter. He recently defended marriage equality to some Indiana state congressmen, and was also on a conference call with Jan Brewer about that anti-gay bill in Arizona before she ended up vetoing it. He's very active in his support.

So liberals are now pro-child-rape? I don't get it.

"Once someone has done his or her time for a crime, repaid their debt to society, whatever "

So you're insinuating that there is an appropriate length of punishment for raping children? Personally I'd put that at "life" but hey to each their own.
