Because this isn't Nazi Germany.

We have a Constitution, and when you go writing laws that say people can have tracking devices implanted in their bodies by the government, you might as well just go kill yourself, because your freedoms are GONE.

I agree with the idea that THESE people should have such a device. But the law doesn't work that way. If you make it legal for the government to plant GPS trackers in sex offenders, it won't take politicians long to make the jump to planting similar devices in the bodies of people who:

1 - don't agree with a sitting president
2 - attend protest gatherings
3 - run a political blog site
4 - are late on their bills
5 - have been wrongfully accused of a crime

Etc., etc., etc.

Hey Whatever,

But an exploding device even if it is a placbo would scare the sh!t out of sex offenders and they would be afraid to run.

Just think if it goes off there is one less criminal in the world.

Kidding aside.

But you are right and I do agree with you!

They don't need freedoms.

They have been convicted of sexual crime.

They need a permanent baby sitter.

Or better yet...a bullet.

You're missing the point.

I'll agree with any punishment or monitoring device for these offenders, as I don't think they deserve their freedoms once convicted.

The problem is, when you understand the way the laws are ammended or challenged, making new rules like that for the criminals makes it too easy for people with other agendas to start making the same laws for people who are NOT sexual predators or other criminals. It's happened before, and it will happen again, and I don't want the government infringing still more on MY freedoms just because they want to take someone else's.

How about MY idea: We just stick them in prison and leave them there. There has to be enough petty thieves and pot smokers who could be released to make room for the truly dangerous ones in society who shouldn't be allowed to roam free. I'd accept that trade-off.

Problem solved.

You summed it up perfectly. That should be a bumper sticker!

But I'd like to add a few more:

- they can't run Social Security without spending the money on other things
- they can't run the Postal Service without losing money
- they can't make the DMV more efficient
