Ya it is. If you get a chance Google Canadian CAS and how they are run. Americans think CPS is bad I'm not sure about the states but here they get paid by filling a quota of how many children they take and place into the system.



Its insane.

parents should be with their children anyway... no child should go into ANYONE'S house reguardless of the sex offender status.



the sign stating "no treats" is ridiculous, that is branding. i dont like that.



i do think they shouldnt pass out candy though, there are certain liberties you loss when you mistreat / rape a person of any age, and for these people, yeah i agree watching little kids prance about and giving them treats should be one of them.

A little off the topic but I would like some opinions too. What if you have a family member who offended at a young age, let's say 17 and was tried as an adult. The "victim" later recanted and your family member was still found guilty. Ok now they have to register and are on the list. They l do all the court mandated stuff and seek counseling. Now 16 years later they are married, have children, have not re-offended. Do you think they deserve to have a second chance and their record wiped clean?

Yes, I do. I have a family member in a very similar situation and it is awful to see how he has been royally screwed because of it.



As for the OP, I agree with most of the other posts. And I think the sign thing is just ridiculous. I can see that causing a lot of problems.

My mother in law remarried after she had my boyfriend and the new husband dated an under aged girl, got caught, went to prison for 4 years, married her and mow has two children with her. He is on the sex offender list because of a teenage relationship and icam have kids and shit mnow without the state being all in his ass. His problem was that the mother of the girl was totally cool with the situatiom but as soon as he turned 19 she called the cops and turned him in. Thought that was pretty stupid but he got nailed for it

This is why I wish that the age of consent would be lowered.

A 15 and 16 year old knows full well what they are doing. Statuatory rape should be a thing of the past. Rape should be just rape. When someone is forced to have sex against thier will

Why can't these people just be allowed to live their lives. If they want to decorate their houses and hand out candy... let them. As parents it is our responsibility to keep our children safe. If you are that worried about your kids being around "sex offenders" then look on the registry and avoid trick or treating at those houses. It is absolutely absurd to not allow people that have served their time to participate in the festivities.

when you commit felonies you loose certain rights. for instance convicted felons loose the right to vote in our elections. if you're so worried about decoration your house and handing out candy, you might want to think about that before you rape a kid.

Not all sex offenders rape kids or are a threat to society.

So to you all "Sex Offenders" are Child Molesters? You need to read the rest of the responses more closely. A lot of things can get you on the list. Peeing in Public being one. Or how about being 17 and having a girl-friend who is 16. Many of the "sex offenders" are on the list for none violent crimes. I personally think if you have kept your noise clean for 10 years and done everything the court asked you to do plus your crime wasn't violent, you should be given a second chance. One mistake should not ruin the rest of your life.
I also believe that the laws should be the same state to state. It would get confusing having to learn the laws for every individual state you might live in.

obviously, but that's a case where i would gladly lump them together as a danger, rather than saying they're all safe. just my opinion,. and i totally agree with the no candy/ decor that some cities impose on them.



sorry sex offenders, but when you commit a crime there will be consequences... even after "time served"

not handing out halloween candy is not "ruining their lives" you're being dramatic.

But you cannot logically lump them all together.



which is why the whole system needs to be reworked
