It might not be okay to harass or even kill a sex offender, but it certainly won’t get you much time if you do.

They need an arsonist registry for people like this or better yet a vigilante registry. I want my family to be able to keep an eye on people like this. They should not be allowed to live within 2000 feet of a registered American.

there is an arsonist registry in California, it just doesn’t get the same notoriety as the sex offender registry.

I didn’t know if they had an arsonist registry in Wisconsin. Who would look at that anyway if it were public, except maybe insurance scammers and loan sharks?

Anyone else bothered that a judge actually said this:

“Let’s state the obvious,” [Judge] Reynolds said. “As parents and law-abiding citizens, no one wants his next-door neighbor to be a sexual predator.”

Wow… we aren’t people. We don’t deserve the same rights? Second class citizens.

In other words, he spent a shorter time in jail than the displaced registered citizen whom was forced to stay in jail another seven months until another house opened up. In addition, the RC was included in a lawsuit with regard to restitution of the house itself, though that was dismissed without cause.

Get convicted of viewing underage pictures in Wisconsin, you’ll get 3 years in prison due to the mandatory minimum law. Burn a registered sex offenders house down which could have caused loss of life and the spreading of the fire to neighboring homes……a handful of months in jail will suffice for punishment. Wisconsin is one messed up state

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
