Reply To: Tenth Circuit COA upholds Oklahoma driver’s license requirement


Its not administrative. It is punishment!

By definition of Google when you type in “Punishment” you get the following definition.
– “rough treatment or handling inflicted on or suffered by a person or thing.”

Depriving an individual of basic civil liberties is punishment.
if you take away freedom of speech – one suffers.
if you take away freedom of movement – one suffers.
if you publicly humiliate or shame – one suffers.

Whether or not Megan’s Law is administrative or punishment one thing is clear.
Megan Law causes suffering; either directly or indirectly.

Thus Megan Law IS punishment because it causes suffering by means of depriving an individual of basic civil liberties.

Can anyone find me an article from a credible source which states denying basic liberties makes one suffer?
