OK: Law enforcement pushing to close loophole allowing sex offenders at Oklahoma school bus stops

[krmg.com – 5/12/21]

TULSA, Okla. — Law enforcement says there is a loophole in the law that allows convicted sexual predators to legally be at your child’s school bus stop.

After learning of the oversight, following an incident in April, FOX23 went to police and lawmakers to find out what they are doing about it.

Adams wants to give other sex offenders a reason to stay away, so he went to Oklahoma State Rep. Ross Ford.

“It really upsets me that we have let that fall through the cracks,” Ford told FOX23.

Ford is planning to address the issue in next year’s legislative session by amending the current law.

“I think the easiest way to get this accomplished is to add a paragraph in there that says a sex offender cannot be at a bus stop without a reason,” he says.

Another great example of why all Americans should be working very hard to de-fund law enforcement. They don’t have a clue what they are doing. Here they are trying to get out-of-control big government to write yet another idiotic “law” to harass Americans, that will do nothing at all to reduce crime or problems. It will just create more jobs for themselves, attorneys, jailers, etc.

They “think” they need this “law” because of a guy that was at a bus stop with his pants down. Maybe I’m a genius but I’m thinking that a person doing that isn’t going to care for 2 seconds if he is supposed to be there or not. I guess when they see the guy with his pants down, they can arrest him for being by a bus stop. Or even better, perhaps if he does think about the “law” ahead of time he will think that he should not go to a bus stop that is within 10 miles of his home and/or in his own vehicle, but that he instead should go 100 miles from his home and do it in a way where he won’t be identified? Yeah, that’s got to be a billion times more likely.

But hey, can we have enough laws? Surely not. They should make it illegal for anyone to be around a bus stop with their pants down.

De-fund law enforcement. Always and in every way. I’m done with scumbags who think the Hit Lists are acceptable. They must suffer war.

I suspect it is already unlawful in Oklahoma to hang around in public with one’s pants down whether on the registry or not. The proposed law is a further expression of the moral panic around registered citizens and designed to gain political points.

Veritas.

Yep, surely it is already illegal to hang around in public with one’s pants down. This proposed “law” is just stupid nonsense and shows how desperate and/or dumb the Hit List terrorists are. They are really struggling to come up with new harassment.

I would not call it part of a “moral panic” however. Not even your basic brainless virtue signaling. This is just raw, pure big government harassment that no one with any sense believes is useful.

I don’t get it…

Why aren’t they concerned about any adult being at a school bus stop without good reason? Why aren’t they adding a paragraph making it illegal for any adult to be hanging around a school bus stop unless they have a legitimate reason (waiting with their child, etc.)?

Seems like just another instance where they’re going after people who are already under the magnifying glass but ignoring the larger population which is actually more likely to be at the bus stop for nefarious reasons.

“Why aren’t they adding a paragraph making it illegal for any adult…”. Because people refuse to accept that 95+% of new sex crimes are committed by those not on the registry. Like you said “…ignoring the larger population which is actually more likely to be at the bus stop for nefarious reasons.”

I see ACSOL fixed the link to the article

What would a non-registrant doing the same thing have been charged with? Are they saying if a person who was “touching himself inappropriately” at a school bus stop was not a registrant it would have been fine?

Crazy people don’t go nuts when they see women in revealing clothes or dudes with their shirts off while showing their plumber butt and underwear out anywhere in our society.

Maybe this guy was near a bus stop and a mosquito bite him in the crotch, so he scratched himself. Just because something looks a certain way doesn’t mean it’s the worst case scenario.

Law enforcement are supposed to enforce laws not do PR for their pals in the legislature.

Hey let me leave my kid at the bus stop area alone. Lazy and apathetic parties do it every day. So here we have a ban, a blanket ban the specific type of ban already described as unconstitutional as applied to offenders by SCOTUS even in the light of good intent and tailored effort. The same effect as thinking gun safety zones infact work to diminish gun violence. The same stupidity in thinking there is really such a thing as cyber security by wall. The greatest threat to American sovereignty IS the database driven infrastructure and the sex offender registries paved the way. You can thank the whole bunch in charge upon the babys birth.
