This woman is a certifiable lunatic and just one more shining example in the exceedingly long list of examples of why the registry should not be available to the public. Spiked with the rhetoric of woefully mis-informed self serving politicians and victims advocacy groups, as well as the presstitutes, many people who have served their time end up harmed in a society that does next to nothing to protect the rights (LOL) of those placed on the registry. I don’t expect this crazy woman to get what she deserves, but at least she was arrested. Not a day goes by when the realization that my life is at risk occupies space in my head. Good laws do not get people killed. The realization of what has been done to this country to millions of people (I’m including family) for personal gain by a few has turned me into a hater. I hide it rather well, but sometimes it slips out. 🙁

Why is this not being treated as an attempted murder? Any time you point a gun at someone and pull the trigger, when motivated not by fear of your safety in a life vs death moment, is attempted murder. As i read the story, it sounded like the man was actually hit. Watch her get probation.

Because Nicholas; the man wears the scarlet label. This society does the least possible to protect registrants; be it their rights or their physical well being. If you or I pointed a gun at someone and pulled the trigger to “send a message” we would in all likelihood be buried in some prison for the rest of our lives or until we were murdered because we wear the scarlet label.

I hate this legal system and most of this society because of what they have done to us. The judgment we receive is based on what a few people we never knew existed did. Our cases were judged on the merits of what others did, and not what we did or did not do. All this; dressed up as good laws that do good things, when paradoxically these laws are in reality the polar opposite of good and right. I never touched anyone, and there was not another human being involved in the act that landed me on this unconstitutional registry with all the accompanying sanctions, suffering and uncertantites that go along with it.

Go to most articles dealing with registrants and you see that their sophistry is alive and well. This whole thing is just plain evil and smells like Nazism.

a. a method of argument that is seemingly plausible though actually invalid and misleading
b. the art of using such arguments
2. subtle but unsound or fallacious reasoning

As I mentioned before, a registered citizen is going to lose it one day and fight back!

I would be that registrant. If anyone ever tried to lay one finger on me because they think I’m a child molester or whatever, one individual would not be walking away without allot of help. In fact one of us would probably need to be carried away; dead or alive.

The victim was actually hit by a pellet. Somewhat different that the notion that a gun was merely fired to vent her hatred. Let the assailant face justice and be subject to a proportional level of dehumanization by the system.

Maybe at the end she can understand the difference between right and wrong and also the difference between justice and vigilantism – but don’t hold your breath.

The victim should apply for any legal rights and protections accorded to him and demand compensation and damages from her as well.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
