What Would Jesus Do with a 9mm Glock?
April 5, 2011Author:Stan Moody
As legislators struggle with the effectiveness and human dignity issuessurrounding lifetime sex offender registries that, under the Adam Walsh Act,would run the gamut of 189 categories from pedophilia to urinating on thesidewalk, there emerges a contingent of leaders pushing for harsher distinctions.In a word, these leaders seem to love registries that not only makepermanent the exile status of offenders of many types but remove whole familiesfrom the forgiveness loop.
What List Are You On?:
Several weeks ago, I published an article, ³What List Are You On?´ Withtongue in cheek, I referenced the 800,000 or more nationwide who are presently onthe sex registry. I poked fun at a bill before the Maine legislature, LD 760, ³An Actto Establish an Animal Abuser Registry.´I suggested that if these registries continue to develop and grow, they willserve 2 purposes ± to give those on registries political voice and to give those of usnot on registries a feeling of moral superiority masked as public safety. Oneconsideration might be to merge the registries and create a PAC.
Drunk Driver Offender List:
Along comes the latest list ± a website that would permit Mainers to see if any of their neighbors were convicted drunken drivers. It would include names,addresses and pictures.This is the brainchild of Rep. Richard Cebra (R-Naples), whose bills thissession have included an act to allow concealed weapons in the State House, an actto nullify Federal laws (states¶ rights advocacy) and an act to require people whoregister to vote to provide proof of citizenship, a takeoff from the ³birther´movement.Mal Leary of Capital News Service quoted Cebra as saying, ³People need toknow about drunk drivers that might be living next door and taking their kids tosoccer practice.´ Whether you are left wing or right wing, it seems always to beabout the safety of latchkey kids.
