I dont mind the sign, as it doesn't attract ridicule, I mean, alot of people put signs up like that.
Locking them up ??? that seems waaaaaay overboard, they act like these molesters are crack addicts who jump on children every chance they get. I know their not saints, but say, if an underage girl lies about her age to a twenty something year old, ... he will be categorized as a sex offender. and ruin his life, ..... as far as the other ones, what they did was dispicable, but people make mistakes.
Maybe they should have a two strikes, castrate, rule or something.
Duration of Requirement: LIFE Or
Per O.C.G.A. 42-1-12 (g) (1) “Any sexual offender required to register under this Code section who meets the criteria set forth in paragraph (2) of this Code section may petition the superior court of the jurisdiction in which the sexual offender is registered to be released from the registration requirements of this Code section. The court may issue an order releasing the sexual offender from further registration if the court finds that the sexual offender does not pose a substantial risk of perpetrating any future dangerous sexual offense.
(2) In order to petition the court pursuant to paragraph (1) of this subsection, the sexual offender shall:
(A) Have been sentenced pursuant to subsection (c) of Code Section 17-10-6.2; and
(B) Have had ten years elapse since his or her release from prison, parole, supervised release, or probation.”

I despise these Halloween "customs"
I know, I know....its supposed to be harmless fun - but its not.
As a kid growing up, I was always told - and so were my peers - "never take sweets/candy from strangers"
And yet on Halloween, this absoutely stupid "trick or treat" custom flies against all that.
And this is a case in point. Kids go out by themselves and they have NO idea whos door they are knocking on, or what might be in the stuff given to them. None at all.
And there is the other aspect of "feral mobs" that bully and harass people, elder teens demanding money, vandalism to property and cars and just generally being a nuisance to old people and those who wish no part in the "game".

The whole sign thing is wrong. What about the people who were 18 and had sex with there 15 year old girlfriend, then got charged with statutory rape, regardless if it was consentual. You gotta draw the line somewhere, but since there is no line with this law, no signs
