Does there have to be a fatality for there to be charges? Can OR not follow AK’s or other states lead on this? The pastor’s family should file a civil suit against the perp and at least go after the entire GoFundMe amount he had donated in his name after the punch. This is not the playground, but a courtroom where this decorum is usually not tolerated.

Let me get this straight the guy got convicted of probably the toughest of all the charges against him (the one charge the DA. thought would stick) which was “illegal transport of a minor with the INTENT to commit sexual assault.” So the guy got 15 years in prison and will be a registered sex offender for life after that for INTENT on the possibility of having sex with a child. Meaning he didn’t actually have sex with the child. So, the child didn’t actually get harmed but they just assumed she might have gotten possibly harmed…Is it me or have we gotten real stupid with our laws and convictions?

Totally believe it. People living in the U.S. have supported moronic nonsense for our ENTIRE history. Nothing has changed, people have not evolved. In fact, I’d say it’s pretty clear that our country is getting dumber by the second. The Registries will continue to help that.

In the state where I live, you can get drunk, drive, and “accidentally” murder someone, and the average sentence you will get is half of this sentence. Meh, no big deal. I guess if you only INTENDED to murder someone then you would get 15 years. And of course, since drunk driving is not dangerous, we have no right at all to know about those people being around us. They are not nearly as dangerous as someone who looks at pictures.

It’s a “$EX offender” witch hunt. Always has been. Hard to see it getting fixed either.

Yet another occasion where the law cedes to politics.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
