What biased deceptive twit created this headline?
As the complete story states, the law requires sex offenders to register their addresses & to stay 1000 yrds away from schools, day cares & playgrounds. When this law was drafted & passed, legislators made it retroactive so that it would pertain to ALL sex offenders, even B4 July '06.
The courts did NOT strike down this law, they merely ruled that it cannot be retroactive. MORE ACCRUATELY put, this headline should read, "Supreme Court amends law" about sex offenders or something like that. The law was NOT struck down, all other restrictions, limitations or requirements of sex offenders is still in effect from this law.
And the media wonders why they are one step above used car dealers!
