NY: High Court right to overturn local sex offender laws (Editorial)

Local and county politicians around the state hopped on a populist bandwagon nearly a decade ago, hurriedly passing laws that outdid the state’s effort to keep convicted sex offenders from living or even walking near schools, parks and daycare centers — in the absence of any real evidence that stricter laws were needed.

I hope our California Supreme Court rules the same as the New York court. Or, better yet, rules that residency restrictions are not applicable to anyone.
Otherwise, I guess it pushes the issue closer to SCOTUS.

Out of the pan and into the fire. SCOTUS (with Scalia and Sc-alito)are about punishment. Never ending punishment.

This is realy great news and an excellent start in the right direction. I realy want to hear a court decide these laws are unconstitutional for reasons other then being preempted by state law. They need to be reversed on the fact that they are cruel and unusual punishment and violate the constitution other then post facto so as to they cannot be applied to anyone.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
