Reply To: The sex offender registry: an invitation for vigilantism

Kurt Martin

So Donald Trump called Anthony Weiner a pervert. So what? So would most Americans, if asked. The guy was cheating on his wife, sending XXX porn pics of himself all over the internet, and sexting with a 15 year old girl.
He’s in federal prison right now, serving nearly 2 years for distributing porn to minors.
Calling such a guy a “pervert” doesn’t mean that Trump would agree that Weiner can never be part of society again, or that he should be hunted-down and killed by vigilantes when he gets out of prison. Get a grip.

Not everybody who won’t give warm welcoming hugs to sex offenders at every opportunity wants to see them victimized for the rest of their lives.
