Retired Fed, Active Special
Hey Housing,HousingCop said:I for one have locked people up for urinating in public (Indecent exposure)which is now considered a sex crime. This was before this SOR was put into place. Now some poor slob who was 18 at the time of the arrest who plead no contest or got a CWOF is now mandated to register as a sex offender. This is perposterous. This registry should be for skinners or diddlers who actually committed crimes against people. Had I known then that these people would be sentenced to wear a Scarlet Letter on them for life, I never would have locked them up for that specific crime.
Don't be so hard on yourself for doing your job. So you busted and booked someone for peeing. You could have read him the riot act, or maybe even called his parents and embarassed him. Just don't second guess yourself buddy. Shouldn't everybody have a BOP?
I agree with ya 100% on the media issue :thumbup:
