Reply To: Sex Offender Registries: Common Sense or Nonsense?


Common sense or non sense? You know my dad when he was alive told all of us kids gowing up if you do anything that is wrong don’t bring it into my house. Sure we all have common sense and sure we all do non sense. Heres the thing about this type of follow the dots issue to see who’s area is a good place and who’s area is not or were are the most sex offenders located. I wonder how all this goes with real estate agents or selling a house.

Its for protection of others which makes sense in a way, but it also makes confusion and nonsense. It goes against moral ethics of trespassing others rights if you want to look at it that way, but it is what it is right now. You tell me one person on this NARSOL fourm that wanted to to be on the registry.
You know maestro I like you and you sort of bring the spit fire out in a lot of this issue we comment about. I know we have had our ups and down’s on here and agreeing and disagreeing is a no nonsense game, but boy this sex offender issue is trying, isn’t that what this sex offender registry is all about. You even brought up a name Traci Lords a name I haven’t heard in decades.

Back in the late 60’s early 70’s one of our theaters wanted to start showing porn flick or adult films at that time so they invited all the business men in town to a free showing to intoduce the sex issue in our town. The movie was “Behind the Green door”. My dad wasn’t interested in seeing it. While dad knew the owner of the theater well and had done business with him in the past maybe did a tax return for him or something he wasn’t interestred in the idea.

Me myself am really not interested in this paint by numbers sex dotting stuff. And remember the names are changed to protect the innocent. Safety feathers are good to an extent but who know’s about whats going to happen tomorrow. Sure mothers will try to protect their kids and fathers will explain things to them but at times kids will be kids but one can be over cautious. The idea is good but that doesn’t protect anyone even from a Hurricane or a Volcano or something like that but it is what it is. A lot of those people were never even around a kid to do anything.

Its just a small measure to say we can protect and you should of looked at the map before these thing occured with your child or him or her being missing if it ever does. Protecting is good but over protecting isn’t.
