Re: “Vermont Sheriff Risks His Career by Hiring a Sex Offender

There are defects in the thinking of many people including every politician who signs on with these useless and dangerous laws.

Now Congress has added another scarlet letter to further restrict people who have already paid for their crimes. Soon (unless courts interevene) Pass Ports will be marked to designate former sex offenders which effectivly wraps a prison wall around the entire nation. Few nations will allow a former felon let alone a former SO to enter their countries.

That so few citizens recognize the danger of registrations and restrictions scares me because this is exactly what Hitler did with Jews. Then when that was accepted, he expanded it to others he wanted to persecute.

Once these things are accepted by courts and the people nothing remains to prevent their expansion to other gradually lesser and lesser crimes until everyone who commits even minor offences will find themselfs publicly shamed, unable to find housing or work.

Politicians don't care of even think about collateral damage when they propose laws...all they think is "How will this make me look at election time"

Sadly there are too few truly good people like this sheriff who take humanity to a better place.
