ACLU to Defend Two Level 3 Sex Offenders

http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/htm...8_aclu09m.html

I don't think they could sink any lower than they have if they tried.

Each state's definition varies a bit but yes Level 3 are repeat offenders. Likely to re-offend and they are seen as the biggest threat to a community.

The organization is consistent on the side of civil liberty. The ACLU once defended Jerry Falwell in a property dispute and won, so don't start thinking they only defend hippies and perverts.

Please spell with complete words rather than using numbers as abbreviations. At first I was confused, wondering where your four reasons were.

The law is pretty ridiculous anyway. Do you honestly think living 1001 feet away from a school is going to free the school of sex offenders? Distance doesn't reform.

Oh but I'd hate to sound like I'm defending sex offenders.

...I never thought of that. Good point.

No, you're not-that makes sense.

Which is why I'd say that instead of having to create a law to bar sex offenders from living in an area, if you know full well the people are likely to do this again, why not just leave them in jail? .

Well not you are getting into something for entirely different thread.

I'm just trying to make the point that the ACLU looks just at the CIVIL liberties of the case and not the client. But conservatives love to jump on the hate bandwagon because they look at the client and it usually isn't them so it's ok to hate.

Eh...some conservatives, anyway. Some liberals tend to be guilty of this, too. I know you know that, just saying, though...

I remember a huge controversy that the ACLU was involved in. They defended the right of the Nazis to march through Skokie, Illinois, which is (or was) a predominately Jewish neighborhood. They lost quite a few members over this. Melon is rigiht, they don't just don't defend hippies and perverts.

There was a piece about the ACLU on 60 minutes or maybe 20/20 which was a real eye-opener about the Assn. It's amazing how much money they get from federal and state governments in the for "defending" a client.

yes, it's terrible to think that the worst among us are still entitled to the same rights and protections of the legal system as the best among us.

let's shoot them instead. that's what Jesus would do.
