What the FUCK is this?!?!?!?!?

Read this.

Nice to know you don't even have to be charged, or convicted, or even have had a civil lawsuit, before this BS comes into play. But that's okay because if there aren't any further complaints after SIX freaking years, you can apply to have your name removed from the registry, as in: A civilly declared offender, however, could petition the court to have the person's name removed from the new list after six years if there have been no new problems and the judge believes the person is unlikely to abuse again. What is this again crap if you weren't charged and convicted in the first place??

Maybe it's time to call in and provide the names of everybody on that panel.

So much for the presumption of innocence...

scout: there's a very nifty discussion, well worth reading the entire group of threads, in the blue left-had sidebar of this blog.
The articles are titled: What is a "Right?; What is a "Right"? Revisited, Part I and ; Part II.
