Sex Offender Signs Publicly Identify Convicted Predators In Florida (VIDEO)

What do you think, over the top or just right?

Personally I am on both sides of the fence on this topic. The crimes these guys commit are heinous and unforgivable. They served their time and have to register so that the public knows about their location. Do murderers who are released back into the public have to also serve this penalty?

I think this borders the same line that racism did. With these signs we are lumping all of these guys in a group and putting on a constant reminder to people passing by of the crime. The problem then is that ignorant people with no self control will then commit crimes against those that have already paid their dues.

What are your thoughts on the subject? I’d like to hear.

    I think it’s going too far. By releasing sexual predators back into the community, the theory should be that they have a chance of rehabilitation, otherwise why let them out?

    If there is a chance they can be rehabilitated, they need to be given every opportunity to make progress, and having such a huge sign out the front of their house certainly wouldn’t help. I’m still on the fence about whether I like the idea of a publicly available register for released sex offenders.

      That’s a valid point. I agree actually.
