IL: ACLU, EFF ask state supreme to strike down limits on free speech in cumbersome sex offender laws

CHICAGO – The ACLU of Illinois, joined by the Electronic Frontier Foundation, today asked the state supreme court to strike down the “incredibly broad scope” of limitations contained in the state’s sex offender registry laws. The amicus brief was filed in the case of ____ ____, a young man from downstate Normal who served a 12-month probation for a misdemeanor offense, which he completed. Though years have passed, Mr. ____ still is forced to navigate a series of onerous and cumbersome requirements under the State’s Sex Offender Registration Act (SORA). Full Article

    First impression: Seeing Joe biden on this page. What is comically ironic is to see on this page an endorsement of the ACLU by the vice president of the United States. I would like to know if he supports the president in signing IML and adding more cumbersome sex offender laws on the books? Or is he stating that by supporting Nazi’s in Stokie, he thinks the ACLU will support the Nazi-like internet identifiers?
    Sorry, I don’t want to take away from the importance of these two organizations challenging the registration laws, but heck, this one just struck me as weird.

      Yes, of course Biden supports it. As a vocal sponsor of the Adam Walsh Act and supporter of everything else that government has done to RSOs, Biden has our blood on his hands.

        Then it is kind of like seeing David Duke showing up on the Southern Poverty Law Center web site saying “Great job. Keep up the good work.”
