Reply To: Breaking: Florida judge rules homeless sex offenders can be arrested

James Coghill

In 2015 the California Supreme Court ruled that the 2000 foot provision in SORNA was unconstitutional because it was overbroad and created conditions that could not be met by anyone. I guess Florida judges are idiots who can’t figure that 2500 feet is greater than 2000 feet. That’s not the worst of it, I’ve met judges who can’t use a calendar or do simple math. That California case although it is not dictum to the state of Florida should have been used as a guide in this matter. Why wasn’t it?

It’s a far more interesting question to ask why Americans can’t seem to live their lives without being in fear of something. I can’t help but think that because America lost the so-called war on drugs and now instead of filling up prisons with pot smokers they’re going to fill them up with so-called sex offenders. After all it makes no sense to build a present that you have no intention of using.
