IN: County to increase fees for out-of-county sex offenders

Source: 10/3/23

Convicted sexual and violent offenders who come in to Bartholomew County to work or for other activities would now pay more to be entered into the county’s sex offender registry under a change being considered by the county commissioners.

Under the existing rules those who lived outside Bartholomew County, but travelled here for various activities were only paying $5 annually to be added to the registry, while in-county residents had to pay $50 annually.

I don’t care if it’s $5 or 5¢, how the F is charging me anything legal? The consistent lie has been that this is a Civil Regulatory Scheme, how can I be charged for that? Do they charge to enforce traffic laws?

If this is a consequence of my conviction, how is making me pay to avoid further penalties not punishment? I had to pay for my Probation, (pay to avoid jail, just like Monopoly)but that was clearly part of my punishment…but this isn’t….how exactly?

The lies upon lies…and all the pretzel shapes they twist logic into to maintain the illusion of legitimacy they hide this injustice behind is… infuriating.

paying $$ is nothing more than a government SCAM and punishment in which the registration should be abolished as its punishment and this is proof its punishment. we should go intogether on a residence just to file a lawsuit !

The spiderweb of lies used to hold the registry together is all well and good here, yes sir!

If you look at the fine print on this ordinance, I’m willing to bet that individuals who can’t afford the fees will be exempt. It’s just a matter of doing a little paperwork and reporting income. They’re not going to tell you that in the article, because it’s all about sensations nal reporting to make people think that some county bureaucrats in indiana are being tough on “sex offenders” coming into their area.

Let’s make citizens homeless, unemployed, and cause more harm by pushing them to the fringes of society while claiming to save the children. Yup sounds like a price club membership from hell, government theft, and human trafficking all based on a citizen’s past.
