Maestro: I don’t think you understand what Parole and probation are. . . . . I don’t how I “support” parole and how that even relates to “supporting” the registry.

Probation is a sentence for a crime. You are under restricted liberty for a certain amount of time. If those who’s supervision you are under state that you can’t enter a park, then you can’t enter a park.

Parole is part of a prison sentence. You are still under sentence when on parole. You are simply serving it outside the walls with lots of restrictions. If my parole officer says I can’t go to a park, I can’t. Good luck getting that one changed.

When someone is not under any form of sentence, they should be free to come and go as they please at any time and anywhere they choose.

The registry is something else altogether and has very little relation, in my opinion, to not being able to enter a park.
