in some states you go on sex offender list for things like:
Streaking in public
getting caught taking a pee in public
getting caught having sex at night in a park, or beach, or cemetary

One time a dude stopped to take a leak in the little patch of woods in front of my house. Like he couldn't see my window??? That's where I keep my binoculars to see what birds are out there.:)
Kinda pissed me off that he couldn't drive to town three miles away and find another place to go.

But I don't think he's a violent rapist whose name should be on the net because of it.

That would likely expose you to legal liability, civil and criminal. The proper response would be contact authorities and remove it.
I agree. As wrong as it is to trespass, death or severe bodily harm is not warranted as a punishment for it.

It gets worse than that. Several years ago Georgia was attempting to tighten up their laws and ended up with an unintended consequence. If someone saw you peeing in the woods you could have faced prison time and permanent placement on the registry. Theyíve since corrected the error.
Youíre correct, an accusation only can place you on the list.
I'd be willing to bet we could all be put on the list for going in the woods.

I wouldn't be so quick to assume that she has never found any treestands on her property. It's quite common for hunters to trespass around here. There isn't much huntable state or federal land in lower MI.

I truly hope whoever is the one thatís injured due to your miss-guided and mentally disturbed hate by sabotaging the tree stand sues you to the point that your property and anything else you own is confiscated and awarded to the huntersí family you injured or murdered. BTW I believe this very post advocating intention to harm or murder would also put you away for a very long time. Care to rephrase your statement?
Hereís a suggestion in dealing with people on your land whether hunter, a fellow ARA or a bird watcher, call the police, sheriff or maybe the game warden and let them handle the trespasser.
http://definitions.uslegal.com/b/booby-traps/
If a person sets up such a trap to protect his/her property, he/she will be liable for any injury or death even to an unwanted intruder such as a burglar. It is illegal to set a booby trap on one's own property to prevent intruders.
I believe the right to sue someone should disappear the moment you trespass uninvited onto their property, especially into their home. I have no problem with anyone booby-trapping their house against burgulars. They can be a serious threat to our lives. Home should be the one place where we can feel safe and unviolated.

Most of the victims of booby trapsare the people who make them. I wouldnt have a vicious biting dog. It could escape and harm some innocent person. There was a guy had a female bulldog behind a chain link fence. A neighbor had visitors who had small children. One child about six years old stuck his hand through the fence in a attempt to pet the dog. That child lost his hand and forearm. And almost died from loss of blood.

Poor kid. That's a hard way to learn a lesson. My neighbors have a couple of boxers I wouldn't trust with a ten foot pole. They tore up their own faces to the point of bleeding trying to get to my dogs. One of them ever succeeds and they will have a hard lesson to learn.

If you'd like the bald-ass truth, I'm all in favor of frontier justice - but we're all outta frontiers.

Sorry, pal, but the Old West is dead.

And Obama "says" he 'won't prosecute residents of legal pot states. He 'claims' he's got bigger fish to fry.

He also said the Patriot Act was boolsheet, and then added to it.

Go figure.

My brother-in-law had a 10-yr-old chow-chow, named Prince, he'd bottle fed from puppy-hood, which took exception to my three-year-old's 'audacity' to attempt joining his cousins in their game of tag - with 35 stitches to my little son's neck and shoulder as a result. I'm not sorry to say, Jack picked his beloved Prince up by the throat, and SLUNG him across the yard. Dog was dead. My son survived.

I still hate chows.

Not apologizing, and not regretful that that dog is DEAD.

I'm a mom.

Just sayin'.

Sure. Instead of saying "Please don't rape," let's say "Rape and die."

I had the best, most laid back, easiest-going, friendliest dog in the history of the world that ever lived. Never, ever chewed anything and never once had to yelled at, because he did nothing wrong.

Bear lived to be thirteen years old and I miss him tremendously to this day though he's been gone for eleven years now. You can see his photo on my profile page. He was a chow mix.

NASHVILLE, Ark.(AP)- State police say an Arkansas couple is dead after an airborne deer struck by another vehicle crashed through the window of their car.

Authorities say the crash happened Thursday morning on Arkansas 27 in south Arkansas. A preliminary report says a pickup struck the deer, which then flew through the air and landed on the car driven by 59-year-old Glenn Johnson of Nashville.

Johnson lost control of his car and crashed into the front doors of a Nashville building. State police say he was killed in the crash, along with his wife, 61-year-old Margaret Johnson.

Two children, who were riding in the backseat, were injured in the collision and taken to Arkansas Children's Hospital in Little Rock.

Question for you, DID YOU BOTHER TO READ THE LINK THAT IT IS ILLEGAL TO BOOBY TRAP PROPERTY OR HOME!!!! You can defend yourself and home without setting up booby traps.

Depends on the trespass. If someone breaks into my home and Iím able to get to a gun their sentence will be death.

But, if I were to rig a gun to shoot an intruder when they open the door Iím breaking the law.

Breaking in to, or attempt to, ones home is burglary not trespass.
