Commentary: The Mayor’s Two Hats: Hysteria In Lancaster?

From Norm Pattis Blog:  The general counsel of Gerry Spence’s Trial Lawyers College has some explaining to do. As general counsel and board member of the college, R. Rex Parris professes a dedication to the college’s mission statement. That statement pledges a commitment to seeking justice for “the poor, the injured, the forgotten, the voiceless, the defenseless and the damned.”

It is hard to find a class of people who better fit that classification than the 700,000-plus souls on the nation’s sex offender registries. While some registrants are no doubt dangerous, the overwhelming majority are not. You can land on a sex offender registry for such offenses as urinating in a public place, teenage sex, sending sexually explicit text messages, or a host of other activities that suggest the world will not be truly safe until virtually everyone is registered.

Thank you, Norm Pattis, for revealing the hypocrisy of the mayor of Lancaster. It is hard to believe that he can on the one hand pledge to help those in greatest need as General Counsel of a trial lawyers college while on the other hand he is leading an effort aimed to significantly harm the same people. It is time for the mayor to decide who he is. A protector of the voiceless, the disenfranchised, the damned, or a dictator willing to steal the basic civil rights of citizens, preventing them for going to a park, swimming pool, library, museum, or movie theater. Will the real Rex Harris please stand up?

@Janice Bellucci – I would settle for the Mayor deciding he is going to do the job he accepted when he promised to uphold the Constitution of the United States, and do what is best for the City and people of Lancaster. His current path is diametrically opposed to that! Time will tell…

Brilliant commentary… just brilliant. Thank you, Mr. Pattis, for your verbal eloquence and your sanity and compassion.

I echo the sentiments of Mr. Pattis. The oath that was taken sounds like one every American, every politician, should uphold.
