NE: Judge asks why state wants to put boy on sex offender list

Federal appellate judges focused their questions this week on an attorney for the state, asking why Nebraska is pushing to put a 15-year-old boy on the state’s public sex offender registry rather than use “good old police discretion.” Full Article

    The registry has no purpose, the best thing the judge can do is to use “good old judge discretion,” is rule the whole NSOR, unconstitutional since it was carelessly imbedded in their law.

    This poor little boy was only 11 when convicted? My God, what did he do, get caught peeing outside? Looking up a skirt? Playing doctor with the neighbor kid? I have 5 brothers and sisters and lived next door to and family with 7 kids. I wonder how many felonies we – especially the older kids – racked up before kindergarten?

    My heart breaks for that kid and his parents and I’m reminded how much I need to protect my own kids from the poor judgement of others, especially the government.

    “Assistant Nebraska Attorney General Ryan Post conceded that if the boy had done in Nebraska exactly what he did in Minnesota, he wouldn’t have been required to register as a sex offender.”

    What about equal protection? Using Post’s own comment, it’s clear that what he is saying is, because the then 11-year-old boy was not a resident of Nebraska at the time of his conviction, he should not be treated as an equal. Equal Protection requires that all persons in like circumstances will be treated similarly.
