The law the Christian county Gestapo was "enforcing" is a farce. It requires that a sign be posted "at his/her residence", but it doesn't say where! It requires a sign, but it doesn't say how large. Sort of sounds vaugue doesn't it? If it were talking about people driving a motor vehicle and a law called for driving "at a prudent speed", would you as a driver know at what speed you would be liable to receive a ticket. No you wouldn't.
The witch hunts have begun, and now beware anyone who has ever violated the law. What today is being done to the sex offender, tomorrow might be done to the bad check writer, the domestic abuser, the recreational drug user, or the convicted impaired driver. This is a slippery slope, and I am certain that this law is a test case to see just how far the government can go to infringe upon personal liberties.

If is were 1935 in Germany and you were a good German, when the Gestapo goose-stepped in and took away those nasty jews next door, they were the good guys, right?

Wow OldHickory, maybe they should just have to sew yellow stars on all of their clothing to let the people know just what horrible people they are.
I think this witch hunt mentality has got to end. My nephew was one of those arrested in Christian county, because the size of the sign he posted on his door was two inches too small. He was 18 and had sex with his 16 year old girlfriend. He pled guilty to it, received probation, and never spent a day in jail. It was even reduced to a misdemeanor, but he has to register until 2010. They kept him in jail for 12 hours and didn't charge him with a crime. I think this sort of thing has to stop.
Yes, he's a real menace all right, and I think maybe a little "Baldknobbering" might set him right.
Just a question though, when do you think that he's paid enough for this horrendous crime?

I think it's a little silly to compare Jewish people to child molesters, don't you? And asking child molesters not to participate in a children's holiday is far from genocide. Get a life.

I don't know "Albert", Remember that the Nazi's, and most of the "Good Germans" of the day believed that Jews were sub-human creatures who didn't deserve to even breathe the same air as they did. Sounds like your outlook. So..."Albert", it appears that you are a "Good German" as well. By the way, for your edification, Albert Einstein was one of those sub humans who was forced to flee Germany, and all of those wonderful "Good German's". As for getting a life, I already have one thank you, bought and paid for in defending people from the likes of you.

So Vizio what you are saying that if a perv had gotten to your child then it would be okay. That you would not want the Law to pursue and when the Judge says OK to probation then the perv is right back out lying in wait for another child you would not want them to try and prevent that from happening again.

Yeah well, Al wasn't a kid toucher.

You can continue to compare kid touchers to the persecuted Jewish race if you want, but the Jewish race didn't do things to warrant the genocide of 6 million of their own kind. Kid touchers, on the other hand, perpetuated their own "persecution", if you can even call it that, by, you guessed it, touching innocent children. BIG DIFFERENCE.

So I guess you wouldn't mind your own children knocking on the doors of pedophiles for candy?

Does your probation officer know your on the internet?

Answer one simple question and if you answer in the affirmative, I will shut up. Is everyone on the magis list a "perv"? What about the guy who got roaring drunk, decided to take a piss in front of Cowboy's Bar and Grill at 2:00 A.M., got convicted of public urination and is now a member of the magic list. Look that one up, he had to register too. No, my one child died in service to his country so don't invoke his name to support your cause.

You get very defensive if anyone disagrees with your point of view. Does your parole officer know that you are on the internet "Albert." What, you have to try to discredit me when I disagree with you? Just pisses you off that I don't agree with you doesn't it. Now, sling some other smart ass derrogatory comment about me personally for disagreeing with you.

Well the chomo's got what they deserve. Look, you dont want to register as a sex offender, dont be 18 and have sex with a 16 year old. Dont pee infront of people in a public place. Mebay we should hunt other offenders like domestic abusers. Good for our Deputies and other municipal law enforcement officers. We should give them more power to keep these creeps in order. What happened to the Buff Lamb types? Keep it up guys!

Vizio, I think your mad because your thinking of offending and you dont want to be restricted from handing out candy to those hopeful victims. That or you do so right now or have in the past. Those who defend the sickos are the sickos.

Just a follow up for those of you who would like to take the Christian County sex offenders and lynch them. Today is Friday, and a week has passed since the arrests. NOT ONE OF THE ARRESTEES HAS BEEN CHARGED.
It was on KTTS today that before Halloween, Jay Nixon sent a letter to each of the County Prosecutors in the state, "suggesting" that they make no arrests as it was "highly likely that the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals [would] dissolve their stay, and the ruling by the below Court [would] be affirmed." I forsee a civil rights violation lawsuit or two, but of course, as has been established, these should fail because the sex offenders have, or should have, no rights at all.

Sadly the 8th circus is so out of touch with the rest of the known universe they will probably agree with you. Myself, I tend to think-- you mess with kids/ we mess with you. You hurt kids/ we hurt you. While I know there are no doubt situations where some good old boy decided to drain the lizard in a location not prudent, the majority of this is directed at those that need our attention-- harshly. Hurt a kid in my care, the "Gestapo" as you call them, would be a welcome relief.

Sorry, that's just the way I am. I for one have had some dealings with these types of situations. A rabid dog is just that. Understand and pet all you want, they will still hurt you. We will no longer let that happen. Tired of it. 8th Circus can kiss my wrinkled a--.
