Geez; I can’t believe these cities and towns that think they have to debate weather or not they will repeal a unconstitutional law. I’m almost embarrassed to be an American when I think about what fools the citizenry are and allow themselves to be led about by their nose, and willingly accept the lies of the people in the state that push these lies that registrants are just waiting for an opportunity to nab some kid for nefarious purposes.

Anyone notice the hearing is on 9/11? Well, if they want to crash their airplane into a building that’s their business. Just make sure the check is ready before hand!!!

And here, in a nutshell, the ENTIRE issue involving registrant laws can be revealed.

I’d have to side with the people,” Councilman McArthur Wright said. “The people are saying it bothers them and they don’t FEEL safe.”

City Manager Frank Luckino told the council that the restrictions have not been enforced since the Supreme Court’s ruling. The only thing that will change if the city does repeal the ordinance is it will not be exposed to the lawsuit.

The people infer registrants “bother them” and they “don’t FEEL safe” (emphasis mine). And yet, the damn ordinance hasn’t been enforced in years in the FIRST place.

If the City Council repeals the contested portion of the municipal code, he said, the city can ask a judge to dismiss the suit.

“These types of lawsuits are all about money,” Luckino said. “The quicker we get it done, the better.”

No, numbnuts. These types of lawsuits are all about the CONSTITUTION, you moron!!

I’d have to side with the people,” Councilman McArthur Wright said. “The people are saying it bothers them and they don’t feel safe.”

The reason people don’t feel safe is because politicians have been lying about the danger of registered sex offenders for the past several decades.

““These types of lawsuits are all about money,” Luckino said. “The quicker we get it done, the better.””

No Lnkino, it not about money it about human beings.

If they did not see this coming, then the desert sun and their own ignorance truly blinded them when they chose to not wear sunglasses to prepare for it.
