    I found a dude who lives one street away who was arrested for "lewd act w/ minor"..
    I'm sure his next door neighbors would like to know about it..

    they already should know about it. sex offenders are required by law to tell their neighbors about their legal history.

    now whether he did tell them is a whole other story....

    The question is, what is the applied definition of a sex offender?
    If you ever kissed a 15-year-old when you were 16, you are a sex offender. That's what happens when you vote in zealot azklowns to make laws.

    Where in the hell did you get that idea? A minor kissing a minor is not a sex crime!

    An adult kissing a minor can be.

    Do you think it is fascist to have laws against adults having sex with children?

    The law does not make a distinction between "a couple of months older" and "30 years older", so it has the unintended consequence of permenently destroying the lives and futures of current teenagers coming of age and doing what teenagers do.

    Like I said, define "sex offender".

    No, but guess what? Any parent with a beef can call it more and drag a kid to court.

    It's a dangerous and stupid law.

    This is the "You hate America!!" defense. It does not address the issue, and sensationalises it into meaninglessness. Even epublicans hate Hannity for doing it. Please don't.

    Why does republican vs democrat crap get brought into everything? Sex offender laws were not passed by "republican facist conservative whatever people" to the dismay of "democrat bleeding heart liberal whatever people".
    They were passed because the majority of all our people don't want their children being exploited and abused.

    18 is the age of consent. It is possible to charge a 19 year old for being with a 17 year old. Common sense should prevail there, but if a jury uses none in that case, it is no reason to change any current laws. It would be dangerous and stupid to do so...

    For the most part, the people on the list are creepy old dudes (and a few old gals) who were charged with things like sexual assault, sexual battery, fondling etc. Not too many 19 yo boys charged with statutory..
