    Re: Should Public Urination Land Someone on Sex Offender List?

    Notice, the law in question is called 'Jessica's Law', which was obviously named after a girl who was victimized, most likely killed, I'm not familiar with her case.

    Often the grieving parents spearhead these laws as a way of dealing with their grief. Politicians get on the bandwagon and throw together laws 'to protect the children'. They gain easy political points with poorly thought out laws that lump public urinaters with rapists. The public supports them because the media has whipped them up into hysterics, and after all, who doesn't want to protect children?

    Once you have a law in place, and a bureaucracy to support it, it's almost impossible to undo.

    I pee in public all the time in California. I'm worried.

    This sounds totally insane to me. What do you think?
    I think the only people who should be labeled sex offenders are rapist,child molesters/rapists and child pornographers.These types of offenders is what the Jessica's law, the Megan's law and etc are supposed to protect kids from. Some guy pissing in the Bushes is not going to kidnap little Timmy nor is some 18-20 year old who got busted for engaging of statutory rape of a 15 year old nor is some crack whore prostitute down the street a threat to little Suzy. So I voted "The sex offender laws need total revamping"
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    It has been my contention for years, that the City should be required to provide "Public faculties" for it's Citizens and guests. That is not to much to expect from a City.But City Counsel, in their wisdom, doesn't see it that way. so I pee where I please.

    The politically correct elite have gone crazy with sex offenders laws.

    Yes, those who urinate in public should be hung.

    Most are fairly average in size, however.

    Public Urination is a different crime from Public Indecency in the Presence of a Minor. And if it's not then it should be.

In the meantime, innocent people get caught up. You have kids in high school getting prosecuted for possession of child porn for having a naked picture of their girlfriends and all sorts of hysteria.

    We need to stop listening to the stupid people, they aren't doing us any good.
    Why does it have to be all bad or all good? Why can't we just create distinctions between child rapists and people who piss in a train yard?

    Are you honestly saying we shouldn't try to keep track of child rapists? Are you honestly suggesting that it's paranoia to try and protect children from people who are pathologically inclined to rape them!?
