The city of Simi Valley, CA., is being sued by a group of registered sex offenders after passing a law that forbids them from decorating their homes for Halloween and passing out candy.
The group's lawyer says the law, which also requires them to post a sign announcing, "No candy or treats at this residence," is a form of branding, and that it violates their right to free speech. Simi Valley is one of several cities in California that have passed similar laws.
Personally, I don't think all sex offenders should be banned from passing out candy. So many things can get you the sex offender label, it isn't funny.
Peeing in the park/wood/in public
having sex in a car
consentual sex with someone who happens to be underage
Why do people think that all sex offenders prey on children?
I think that if thier crimes were non violent and non child related, they should be able to pass out candy.
What do you think?
