Biggest F-ing A-hole 2010

Ok. Girl was kidnapped, raped, and killed. Sad, horrible, tragic, killed by a registered sex offender who had complacient parole officers, etc, etc.
What pisses me off is every time this happens, they decide to name a new law or procedure after the girl. I mean, grieve as you wish, but how many laws do we need?
As the case against John Albert Gardner III is set on a "slow track," the wheels are in motion to create a Chelsea's Law to address issues raised in the wake of her killing. King's parents, Brent and Kelly, are partnering with the state Assemblyman who represents them in Sacramento, Nathan Fletcher (R-75th District), who is already putting heat on corrections and parole administrators. He's looking at a long menu of ideas for new legislation.
"Everything is on the table: longer prison sentences, a better system of probation, a strengthened one-strike provision, changes in our parole system, online reporting, GPS monitoring," Fletcher told journalists at a news conference Tuesday in his Mira Mesa office. "We will look at every single aspect."

They dont even know what the hell they want! They just want SOME KIND of legislation with her name on it. For what? To "save" the next victim? To "not have her die in vain"? NEWS FLASH...you wont save anyone with a new batch of laws or protocol. If a registered sex offender doesnt kidnap the next girl and rape / kill her, it will be some neighbor. Then what? Introduce legislation banning neighbors?
The only full-proof way to stop your child from being kidnapped is to accompany them any place they went, walking in their footsteps.
Why dont we sit down and reform the whole damn system instead of 1 law at a time because another girl is raped and killed?

Putting names on laws, especially a girl that died in such a tragic way is really just a political game. You almost have to vote for it. I mean, if you don't, that must mean you wanted poor Chelsea to get murdered, you like rape and are probably a sex offender yourself.
I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Cooters on fire off the shoulder of General Discussion. I watched spittle-flecked posts glitter in the dark near the Pub. All those moments will

So, what percentage of people who rape/molest people are related to their victims? It's a shockingly high number. I propose we eliminate any sort of familial relations. For the children, of course.

I seem to recall an incident a few months ago, involving a young black girl and a large group of teenagers. She was raped over the course of several hours, with bystanders watching and sometimes participating. This was at a school dance, in california, and received very little coverage.
For some reason, the above case seems to me to be much more horrific then the rape/murder case, mostly because the victim didn't die, and was forced to endure the indignity at a supposed chaperoned function. Why not pass a law addressing this incident? There is obviously something that could be passed, that would be relevant and more helpful then just plastering a name onto it.
Yeah, I feel for the family of the murdered girl, but appeasing them by proposing a law that hasn't even been thought out is just asinine and in a way insulting.

I think they should build a great wall around the city to keep potential predators out.

Yep, stricter legislation for sex offenders is a bad idea. They have it tough enough as it is.

They should build a wall around every person to keep potential predators out/in.

Sex Offenders should be shot, or at the very least, have their genital parts removed.

I don't really keep track of this sort of thing, but haven't there been various such laws? Haven't those established anything? Or can't those eb updated? Or replaced? Or do they keep all of those and thus making things rather complex (which law applies when? What of they contradict eachother? etc.)?
IMHO, just set up some law called "child protection legislation" or something and add legislation to this law that reduces the chanches of kids and such being victamized due to violence, abuse, rape and so on of various kinds.

Didn't that got plenty of coverage? It made it to this forum atleast and the media/public seemed quite upset about it, and I'd guess that's more then plenty of other missing/abused/raped/../ kid incidents get. Or not?

It got some coverage. It didn't get any change in laws.
EO Violation, I'm not quite sure if you're joking. The way that the current system is set up (once they're out of prison) basically forces them into isolation, severely affects their job opportunities, and keeps them away from any sort of support network, and doesn't do a good job of tracking their activities. Because everyone knows that the best way to stop someone from committing a crime is to make them angry, alone, desperate, and poor. Also keep in mind there is a difference between a kiddy-fucker and the larger umbrella term "sex offender". If you're caught urinating in public, you can be deemed a "sex offender". Seems like the term needs some re-examination, no?
