Reply To: Group urges RI governor to veto legislation restricting SO access to shelters

Jane Smith

I’m so sick and tired of how SO’s are repeatedly being vilified and constantly used as political pawns- taking on more and more restrictions in their lives. If they have served their time let them be! These laws are draconian and I find it appalling that in 2017 politicians, judges and people are just as ignorant as they were in Salem during the witch trials. Wake up!
They must be allowed to establish a normal life without having that registry ball and chain follow them for years and years and for some the duration of their lives. When it comes down to restricting them from getting shelter that is just plain sad. It’s barbaricly inhuman.
