Reply To: Sixth Circuit rejects Michigan residency & premises restrictions


I am surprised the state let this go as far as it did. Here in Ga the same thing was happening, school bus stops were exclusion zones as well which made complying near impossible. The legislature simply re-wrote the laws which made it apply to those crimes committed after its implementation. I hope it stands in Mich. as is, it is unfathomable that some of the defenders of law argued that people have no right to work or live where they choose. It would be interesting to hear after how far beyond the findings in smith, what the justification of these punitive measures would be.
