NH: House Votes 231-97 To Prohibit Sex Offender Restrictions

Twelve towns have passed ordinances to limit where sex offenders can live —  barring offenders from living near schools, or child-care centers. But law enforcement oppose such bans.  Renny Cushing of Hampton, a Democrat, told House colleagues that police know restrictions make monitoring offenders harder.

“The chiefs of police do not want to have a situation where you take away one of the tools they have which is to track where sex offenders are. And that’s also why the coalition against sexual and domestic violence is in support of this legislation.” Full Article

what is never mentioned is the glaring truth that these restrictions impose punishment after the fact by essentially a civilian body. Thank goodness for one little iota of common sense in this sea of madness.

California should adopt a similar law without delay.

This is kind of odd. Usually the police is right on board with the city. I’ve been noticing more and more articles that talk of the lack of results and harmful nature of these types of laws. Maybe people are finally starting to wake up! That would be great!!

Don’t forget they are most likely looking at the “harmful nature” of these laws when they backfire and cost them court fees, sanctions, penalties and other monetary damages.

They are not seeing harm in terms of the emotional and financial damage to us and our families whose constitutional rights are severely violated and trampled.

These laws are not even about an actual victim, they tend to focus on public opinion and how to use that to their advantage to fortify often incongruous laws that both give the illusion of safety and increase satisfaction ratings and re-election probabilities.

It is good for us, even if it is their fear of the law that actually brings us relief. Not relief in the sense of anything being done positively for us, but relief in the form of possibley removing yet another layer of unwarranted bondage and punishment.

I know my statement lacks optimism, but after what has unfolded in the past two decades, I can only figure that even if there are voters who care about damage to our family members, for example, very few will actually go out of their way or take any action to mitigate the harm done. Let’s take whatever wins we can in whatever way we can get them and never give up hope for justice.
