so by his logic, now it's ok for someone to kill him to prevent him from killing again, right?

I thought it was to provide spineless lawmakers with an easy prop to demonstrate how tough on crime they are by singling out people who have committed crimes that are easily labeled as reprehensible through sensational headlines and then continuing to punish them even after their sentences have been completed.

I'm pretty sure of them prayed for vigilante justice.

Oh, it's pretty openly about vigilante justice. They were just caught off-guard when somebody carried that past their own limited imaginations and took it to its logical conclusion.

I like the UK version better. You have to go to the police station. State your reason for looking. Like if you do have small children. Or not. Then they log your name and let you look through the data on your neighborhood.

But Beadle cautioned against vigilante justice.
"It's a really dangerous thing, when people start taking law enforcement into their own hands," she said. "That's why we have a justice system."


Sorry, we can't see you winking in a newspaper article.

I have to assume the victims criminal behavior stemmed, in part, from PTSD from years of Donkey Kong throwing barrels at him.

From the article, it sounds like there is a non-zero chance the killer might've done it to get away from his wife.

It depends of course. All the municipalities and states have different laws. At a federal level, no. At a city or state level, maybe. And if you get on it one place, in general, you are on it everyplace if you move.

pretty rare, and a different level of offense with somewhat different results for being 'put on the list'.  technically true, but not really an issue worth arguing about for or against the idea of a sex offender registry in and of itself.  Oddly enough the same people who scream about equal rights being a 'slippery slope' latch onto things like that and ride it all the way down the hill as if it matters.

So, when I was in my early 20s, there was this guy in my friend group who we always thought was a little off. Years after he got married and had a kid, he was arrested for producing child pornography via his molestation of his wife's kid brother and his friend. Last I looked, he got 29 years in prison. I don't deny that I'd love to club him to death with his own severed arm if I ever see him again.

Sure, it's WRONG, but in the hierarchy of criminals who deserve my sympathy, kiddy diddlers are at the bottom.

Sayonara, pedo.

The only people that are on the list for this are too poor to afford even a Saul Goodman yellow pages lawyer to plea this down to 2 hours community service. Unless there was something else going on this type of thing just isn't worth the time and everyone knows the stakes are too high being on those lists.

Harry Freakstorm: I thought it was to show you where the cheapest apartments were.

If you're talking about the laws preventing them from living within a certain radius of, say, a school, welcome to the Law. Of Unintended Consequences, that is.

If you mark off places where they can't live but the number of them remains the same, what happens to the neighborhood areas outside of those proscribed radiuses? Neighborhoods that were once nice places to raise a family?

At least in Virginia, it seems like public urination does.

(I have identity protection from the US OPM for the common reason, and for some reason that service generates a list of people in the sex offender registry who live or work within an roughly 5 mile radius of my house.  It's depressing to see how many people are marked for life because of dumb choices like that.)

In theory?  Knowing where and when to keep a closer eye on your kids.  But that's a fig leaf for politicians looking Tough On Crime and Caring About The Children.

These registries are a net minus for society, although one of the few things that looks worse for a politician than voting against creating a sex offender registry is voting to shut one down.

There were people who explicitly justified that school official's threat on the basis that she had a legitimate fear of someone being killed, raped, or suffering grievous bodily harm from people who weren't wearing masks.

Last I checked, the dead guy in this case was actually convicted of doing one of those things.  So it seems like there's a better chance that this killer was right than would be a Karen who sits somebody for not wearing a mask.

(To be clear, I don't think either kind of shooting is justified.)

I once saw an attorney file a post trial motion to have his client's name moved from the sex offender registry to the child murderer registry since there was no evidence at trial that the child murder included a sex act. The judge granted the motion. I asked the attorney why that was better, and he responded that since nobody even knows about the child murderer registry, nobody ever checks it, and his client would be far less stigmatized when he gets out of prison.

I'm sorry, I missed the part in the law where it says you can shoot someone for something they did years ago.  If you can't draw a distinction between what people have done in the past and what they are currently, actively doing that harms people around them, well, I'm not sure how you manage to operate a computer.
