I'm glad that wasn't what I thought it was, that would have been cruel and unusual.

That was my thought as well. I clicked the link expecting to be appalled. After RTFA, I can see why the sheriff did that.

Hey, you molest a 4 year old boy, you might get a year in minimum in a special unit for child molesters. At very least I am all for the sex registry, enforcing it and using it. Usually the primary crime committed against people that go on with troubled lives (which is a hell of a lot) was being molested as a child. These molesters should have far more punishment done to them, at least make it equal to murder for sentencing.

Okay, I scrolled a little further and saw what these three particular sex offenders have in common and am now thinking the sheriff was motivated by more than just "thinking of the children".

I'm sure they objected, but all the sheriff heard was a bunch of yadda yadda yadda.

So people who aren't allowed to be near children had their rights violated by warning children to stay away from their sick, twisted, broken selves.

They have rounded them up and locked them in a shipping container. Maybe for the entire week before and after Halloween, just to be safe.

/Then drop the container in the Mariana Trench.

Not going to give NYPost a click, as if it matters, but I'm assuming there is more to this than just a small town sheriff protecting kids.

Can anyone confirm or deny?
 
2022-01-20 6:53:02 PM  
Couple of points:

I would not at all be surprised if that sheriff popped on some mirrored shades when he's rolling by the high school.

Also, don't let anyone get away with violating your constitutional rights for any reason. It's a slippery slope and fark commenters are not THAT far above convicted sex offenders.
 
2022-01-20 6:56:19 PM  
He also said Georgia law prohibits registered sex offenders from partaking in Halloween, which the appeals court noted was inaccurate.

Sounds like an open-and-shut case. The sheriff can enforce the rules of the registry but can't make up his own rules.

Abolish sex offender registries. If they are still dangerous, they should be behind bars. If they're not, all you're doing is making their lives miserable and making it nearly impossible to live and hold a job.

A sex offender cannot be rehabilitated.  If they are dangerous, and they are by definition, they should be put down.  By the government, after a fair trial, of course.  Painlessly.  Of course.

Why wasn't she arrested?  Did she have sex with a minor or not.

The law is the law.  And if she did, she needs to serve the same punishment as a man.  Gender is not an excuse.  And the punishment for a man for sex with a minor should be painless death.  Therefore for a woman, the punishment should be painless death. No exceptions for women.  They are the same as men.

The world has an oddly large population of people who think objecting to punishment for the sole purpose of lifetime stigmatization constitutes "sympathizing with rapists."

I also don't sympathize with murderers, arsonists, bank robbers, crack dealers, or sundry other criminals, but I do believe in their right to attempt to reintegrate into society after they have served their sentences.

Not advocating child molesters be allowed to interact with children.  Do not think posting signs in yards is a good approach though.  It can cause people to get beaten or killed by overzealous neighbors who don't have the details of the offense the person was charged with.

Some states put people on the sex offender registry for life for things that aren't really much of a risk to the public.  You could have just been dumb and drunk enough  to have pissed in public and someone saw your junk.  That's hardly the same as people that groom or abduct children.   Many gay people ended up on registries too because of sodomy laws.

Needs to be universal standard classification of sexual offense and it's severity level.  That way the camel toe lulemon wearing woman or bulge sporting bike short guy don't get lumped in the same group with rapists and child molesters.  Nothing is black and white.

You can be all for it for child molesters and the like, the problem is you can also get on it for things like streaking, getting seen taking a drunk piss, etc.  It's vastly overused in a lot of places, and it ruins people's lives over stupid shiat that wasn't anyone's sexual assault, just dumbassery.

Getting put put on the sex offender registry can be as simple as drunk jacking off to a stranger.  If they did the punishment, that shouldn't that mean that some dick sheriff gets to post signs on their property.

This violates the 1977 US Supreme Court ruling Wooley v. Maynard, ruled after a government agency mandated an idelogical message from the state must be displayed on a person"s private property (in this case an automobile). The court states that the right not to speak is protected as equally as the right to speak. The state jailed George Maynard in 1974 for covering over the state motto on his license plate, which he opposed on religious grounds.

Another huge problem with the registry is what happens to your clasification if you move from state to state.
If you did something stupid & minor in one state, how it transfers to your new state can be seriously farked upp.  If it were well designed and uniform, that would not be an issue

Pissing in public in Florida used to get you arrested for indecent exposure, don't know if it still does.

Here in Georgia there's a sexual offender registry that tells you where they live.  And believe me when I say news of a neighbor being arrested for kiddy diddling spreads through a neighborhood like wildfire.

Guy in the house behind mine, and over one, has been in jail for allegedly sexually abusing his granddaughter.  The whole 'hood knew about it within a week. Nobody has bailed him out, either....since July.

A lot to unpack there.

I'll admit that the law need some tweaking, but jacking off to a stranger...? That's an early sign of a broken person. That said, in my state, as far as I know there are pathways to get off the list for lower level offenders.

Rapist, child molesters and the like? List for life. I don't give a shiat if it's a stigma. You should have your crimes tattooed on your face so the rest of the world knows what a dangerous piece of garbage you are.

I've said it before in these threads. There's a difference between musing on throwing rapists into wood chippers feet first and wanting the government to have the power to throw people into a wood chippers feet first. One is good clean fun, the other would obviously have a bad outcome in the long run.

And the area between the sidewalk and grass is considered an easement. It's yours to use maintain, but the town can utilize it as needed.

Glad there are still some people in the US who still believe in the Constitution. You, however, are not one of those people.

You do know there are other ways to indicate no trick-or-treating like not turning you porchlight on or one could simply not answer the door

AmbassadorBooze: Hobo as a nerd: AmbassadorBooze: austerity101: Abolish sex offender registries. If they are still dangerous, they should be behind bars. If they're not, all you're doing is making their lives miserable and making it nearly impossible to live and hold a job.

A sex offender cannot be rehabilitated.  If they are dangerous, and they are by definition, they should be put down.  By the government, after a fair trial, of course.  Painlessly.  Of course.

I knew a woman who, when she was 18 seduced an almost 18 year old.  She was threatened with being arrested for sex with a minor.

Why wasn't she arrested?  Did she have sex with a minor or not.

The law is the law.  And if she did, she needs to serve the same punishment as a man.  Gender is not an excuse.  And the punishment for a man for sex with a minor should be painless death.  Therefore for a woman, the punishment should be painless death. No exceptions for women.  They are the same as men.


You sound single

See, this is why I don't put people on ignore.  Every once in awhile, even the crazy people have a good idea.

The idea that we put people on the street who we think are dangerous enough that they're forbidden from handing out candy is kind of absurd.  They served their time.  That should be the end of it.

Their lives should be miserable.
