    Should Public Urination Land Someone on Sex Offender List?

    According to this article State Supreme Court Upholds Part Of Jessica's Law - San Diego News Story - KGTV San Diego , urinating in public is apparently on par with rape.

    SAN DIEGO -- The California Supreme Court Monday upheld part of Jessica’s Law, which prohibits registered sex offenders from living near schools and parks. However, the high court sent questions about the constitutionality of the law to the lower courts to figure out.

    The case involves four plaintiffs, two from San Diego. J.S. is a registered sex offender because he was convicted of urinating under a railroad trestle in 1985 in Texas. K.T. raped an adult 20 years ago.

    J.S. and K.T. are on parole and said they’ll end up homeless under Jessica’s Law, which states that registered sex offenders “shall not reside within 2,000 feet of any public or private school or park.
    This sounds totally insane to me. What do you think?

    Absolutely not, but we've gone crazy with the sex offender thing. We've demonized it so much and run so purely off of emotion that we've set up an insane system where people end up on lists, those people sometimes can't even find a place to live because of the restrictions, etc. There's automatic punishments, automatic placement on lists, you can't readily get off the lists, etc. It's an entire system made by scared, stupid people because oh won't someone please think of the children. 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.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    HO-LEE Crap!

    Public urination should barely even be illegal what with most all businesses saying "no public restrooms" and what have you. I don't know how it is where everyone else is, but in Seattle, there are NO public facilities unlike basically every big city in Europe. And really, if no one sees you doing anything obvious who's to say you just aren't admiring the view.

    As someone who has been caught in the "I gotta go" situation before there needs to be clear distinctions between sexual deviancy and a lack of preparation

    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    And that's another bit of ridiculousness! The reason why CP/Molestation/Stat Rape are all bad is because they abuse the power structure and hurt a person emotionally because of the POWER STRUCTURE not because of the act itself. People need to understand the psychology of such acts before they go condemning perfectly healthy, if risque, behavior.

    Furthermore, in situations where there is no abusive power structure, it's really a 50-50 share of "blame" if you can even call it that. Were those girls prosecuted for producing CP? If not, then as far as I understand what really happens in these situations, they were not victims by any means and if yes, do you understand how crazy it is to be prosecuted because you took pictures of yourself?!?!

    So your single scenario is the basis for your decision to make them all sex offenders?

    This is way over the top surely this wasnt the intent of the law.
