127 mandalore237 This is the sheriff of the county I live in. He's a media whore who will say/do anything to make it into the news. He's gotta long history of saying and doing questionable things but for some reason a good portion of the people around here adore the guy. It's disheartening
89 JG_ruiz It was stated in an earlier article that the reasoning behind the tweet was to let it be known publicly that sex offenders and people with felony warrants would be barred from entering the shelters housing children and all the valuables a family could bring with them. It was also stated that this is not a new policy, but one that has been in effect for a while.
13 rocketwidget Hope he loses. The 4th Amendment is supposed to prohibit police from demanding your ID without reasonable suspicion of a crime. Entering a storm shelter is not reasonable suspicion of a crime.
15 SomeoneWithOpinions >The sheriff said his stance was to prevent registered sex offenders from entering shelters. But the suit filed by immigrant rights group Nexus Services states Florida driver’s licenses already clearly mark someone as a sex offender. They claim the policy was discriminatory and violates Fourth Amendment rights against unlawful search and seizure. Interesting stuff. I hope people read the full article before posting.
2 xRisingSunx So the sheriff is keen on sentencing those previously convicted of a sex offense to death by hurricane? I thought double jeopardy was illegal in this country and that your punishment was complete after your time was served. Those offenders still pay taxes, and those taxes go to pay for the shelter and his salary. I am wondering if he would also turn away other felons. Such as those convicted of assault and battery or murder? What makes a sex offender more dangerous than those people?
