Once again, Jerry Keen comes up with a law which is a load of crap. Notice they always say these laws are restrictive and not punishment... THEN WHY THE HELL IS "PUNISH" IN THE BILLS TEXT??? It's punishment and they know it, therefore it should be UNCONSTITUTIONAL for anyone who committed a sex crime before this law passes.
- Why do they always add "and for other purposes" to the end? That leaves it open so they can add anything they like at anytime they want. That should be illegal. The laws need to be clear so you do not need some lawyer to figure it out, and even they cannot figure some of these laws out.
- If I remember right, this is what the law originally was, then they made the measuring from the persons FRONT DOOR to the property line of the church, school, etc. Now he's basically putting the law back to how it was.
- So it applies to home owners (rich folks) only. Renters are still faced with having to move over and over and over again. They are entitled to the same rights and are faced with the same issues as a home owner is, so basically nothing in the law is changing, unless I'm missing something.
