Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, October 24, 2019

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, on Thursday, a judge is expected to decide whether or not to allow the cops to put the signs up again this year. But it doesn't really matter what the court says: Sheriff Long says that the signs are going to stay... ...Long wrote on Facebook. "Regardless of the Judge's ruling this Thursday, I WILL do everything within the letter of the Law to protect the children of this Community."

Another cop who thinks he's above the law. I'm sure Trump will pardon him when he gets held in contempt.

In Louisiana, by lay you have to have a sign in your yard and the state sends postcards to every mailbox in a certain radius.

Well they don't live in Louisiana. They have done their time and done what is required by law. That said I don't have any objections to private citizens warning trick or treaters a convicted sex offender lives at the address - if they targeted children. BUT to have LE putting signs in the yards while on duty and I am sure paid for by government without the Law on their side and approval? That's going too far. There is a registry - if you are a parent use it.

Don't take this the wrong way - these lists have a place and can be valuable. But too many "offenders" on these lists that don't really deserve to be. I know a guy on the list because as a 16 year old he had 'consensual' sex with a 15 year old. She got mad when he eventually broke it off with her and one thing led to another and it was reported to the police. She isn't on the list but he is. That's just stupid all the way around.

The signs strke me as a way for the Sheriff to gain more name recognition.
