LA: Confusion Remains Surrounding Sex Offender Photos Law

Confusion, mis-information or no information continue to be a theme for Louisiana State Representative Barbara Norton’s law on posting sex offender photos in schools where *kids* can see them.

At the end of last school year KTBS spot checked 4 local schools. 1 in Bossier and 3 in Caddo, most were not in compliance with the law. Photos of sex offenders were posted in teacher lounges and places that students would not regularly have access to, thus defeating the purpose of Norton’s Act 859.

“I wanted to give children the opportunity to see the faces of some of these predators,” said Louisiana State Representative Barbara Norton. Full Article

Is it me, or has Louisiana simply gone nuts with their S.O. laws???

This says much of a woman that would steal and corrupt the innocents of children in this manner.

These laws are the epitome of confusion created in the extreme void of absolute lack of factual information about risk and recidivism.

They are based on ignorance, hate and the resultant fear. That is a vote getting and mob rule combination that we haven’t seen since Jim Crow.

These are serious violations of basic human and constitutional rights. Anyone crafting and enforcing these laws should be brought to justice for the damage they are doing to the principles that this country is based upon.

The elusive elements we pray that judges will have in taking on this horrible miscarriage of justice are truth and courage.
