This lawyer didn’t do his homework. There is at least 1 Judge that said it is punishment and the congresspeople say it is.

The judge can say whatever he/she wants. Anything at all.

I pray the man demands trial by jury. Our founders understood a case is best made before the people themselves. Prosecutors often pick the low hanging fruit. If one makes waves and forces trial it gets expensive for them in time and effort.

Yes, registry is punishment. But from what I read about the circumstances surrounding this case, this man is hurting the arguement, not helping it.
He isn’ t exactly a poster child for registry removal, offense withstanding. By not following his requirements, he is painting all of us in a bad light. Again, the few making it hard for the many.

While we all agree the registry is bunk, FTR is still on the books and is illegal in CO. He’ll most likely not be able to get out of this charge because he was beyond the time allowed to stay in CO without registering. A trial by jury or judge alone probably won’t help him on it, but he is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law (even in Aspen).

However, for the other charges, white powder under the nose and modeling your birthday suit while under the influence…well, it is Aspen and it is a bit freer there, so maybe he gets drug rehab/therapy and keeps the county tyvex jumpsuit as a parting gift to stay covered up in such emergencies.

If banishment, post judging, ex criminals is not discrimination in as many forms as one can think of ….. especially vital societal issues….housing, jobs, safety,..not to mention all the legal/ which is really Illigal SOCIATAL BURDENS HEEPED UPON EX OFFENDERS …..Well ! Hell ! What else could you call this but PUNISHMENT! And more PUNISHMENT!

It is amazing how a random judge from a small remote part of Colorado can make such an impact on law without common sense or reason. There are only about 3 registered sex offenders listed in their area and yet for one of those three this moronic judge has nothing better to do with his time but to make life a living hell for this individual. What can we do to make this judge receive a no confidence NO vote this November? Is there anything we can do to challenge or appeal his ruling? A postcard to local residents in Aspen, Co. to vote No on this judge could be a start… How to best package it will be the biggest problem…

I’m estimating that close to three million registrants, including their families, consider the registry punishment and yet only a small amount of (insert here) don’t?

People should post comments at the article. I posted the following:

There are literally zero people with brains who still believe the lies of these Nanny Big Government (NBG) criminal regimes when they say that the $EX Offender Registries ($ORs) are not punishment.

There are also literally zero people with brains who think that it would protect anyone if this guy was listed on Colorado’s $OR. That would protect no one. But, it would continue to remind this guy that he has no obligation at all to be a decent citizen and that he should not care about other people. It would remind this guy that most people in the U.S. are scumbags who deserve nothing and no rights. It would make him want to hurt anyone who support the $ORs. That’s all. And I do pray that this guy very seriously retaliates for being arrested.

People who support the $ORs are immoral, un-American, harassing terrorists who cannot mind their own business or leave other families alone. They don’t care about facts. They “think” with their emotions. None of us Americans need have any concern for the terrorists. But the terrorists do need to explain to all of us how it is even slightly conceivable how they have so massively failed to get the rest of their NBG Registries created. No national, public, lifetime Gun Offender Registry? Wow. I guess their “for the children” is nothing but a bunch of lies.

if registration is a civil action then why don’t we just pay a fine and be done with it. I can’t think of any civil action where they can constantly change the defendant’s civil penalty. If i get sued and am ordered to pay $20K in damages they can’t come back down the road and say that they’ve updated it and now I have to pay an additional $10K. Why would they be able to do that in regards to sex offender registration? Our courts are just as tweaked as our politicians.

Another stream of political correctness that has conditioned everyone to the myth of how the registry is not punishment and that it’s a safety thing which is not true because it has been proven for years that it’s a continuation of punishment simply because they won’t let go and leave them alone.

When a RC is forced to admit on a journal all personal information it is self incriminating ! When authorities can keep bombarding ex offenders with unrealistic and overly demanding restrictions after prison and call it non punitive, is unpresidented….never in American History has this been allowed at this scale ! What idiots allow the Law to Run Amuck and respond like this is justified and normal for this class of OFFENDERS !

it not an punishment for adult but is a punishment for child.


we have children going to adult prison. That is not a punishment

it gotta be interesting..

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
