Sex Offenders Face Big Halloween Restrictions


Law enforcement officials in several areas are checking up on parolees and probationers on their state's sex offender registry.

Costume parties are off limits for some sex offenders. Tennessee, New York, Ohio, North Carolina and Maryland are just a few of the states where there are restrictions for sex offenders at Halloween.

Maryland law enforcement officials are warning child sex offenders not to get too excited about Halloween. In fact, the offenders are being asked not to decorate their homes to attract trick-or-treaters.

1. And the courts rule these registries AREN'T 'punishment'
Jesus Christ. Naw, telling you what sort of party of adults you may and may not have in your own home isn't a punishment. Silly me.

2. Most of the restrictions were for those currently on probation or parole
Not just everyone on the list. That's appropriate-most child molestors have "avoiding children" as a condition of their parole or probation.

Still, though, that doesn't excuse parents from supervising their kids on Halloween. This isn't the 70s anymore.

3. "This isn't the 70s anymore."
And just how much more dangerous is it?
