Reuters quotes OH Democrat Rep Michael DeBose as saying in a statement, "The fluorescent-green license plate will make the most egregious sex offenders easily identifiable." Police in the state like the idea due to the fact that it will help them track those sexual offenders who have registered with the state and are not allowed to live within 1000 feet of a school.
Summit County Sheriff Drew Alexander said, "It will give Ohio families a great peace of mind knowing that their children will be able to recognize where this danger exists." As would be expected, there are those who oppose this new law and suggest that a special plate on a car will stigmatize everyone who share the car with the offender, not limited to spouse and children.
Of course, my feeling is this...why would someone want to be married to a convicted sexual offender and have their kids anywhere near him/her?????
If this law does pass, you can expect the ACLU and other groups such as theirs who are more worried about the "rights" of a criminal than the rights of those these low lives have trampled upon to fight it tooth and nail. Yet another reason why we need good judges on the bench who are more worried about upholding the law of the land and the constitution than bowing down to special interests.
