This sure has become a real mess. Perhaps we’ll see some progress in the “civil commitment is actually punishment” area from this fiasco. Something helpful may come from this to bolster challenges to other issues facing sex offenders.

Wow, so they selectively picked sex offenders? Again, more evidence in our favor to abolish the registry altogether.

Selectively applied laws are indicators of the stripping of our constitutional rights and should be met with swift dismantling of the law itself, or removal who are complacent in its unequal enforcement.

If you cannot vote, you are not an American citizen and you owe no loyalty to the United States.

A vote is not a gun.
A vote is not a bomb.
A vote is not a sexual assault.

A vote is a harmless and effective way to show people who served their time that they are once again considered citizens.

If you cannot vote, you are not an American.

I agree. If SOs don’t have the rights afforded to all citizens then they are not citizens. So why must they share all the responsibilities of citizens such as paying taxes,but with none of the privileges. I say to the government of the divided states you can’t have your cake and eat it to.
