1. People have been shot dead for being on the sex offender list, driven into homelessness, etc, by those who did not bother to find out their actual crime, which may have been urinating behind a dumpster in an alley, or having concensual sex as a teenager with a slightly younger teenager, or sending a naked photo of themselves as a teen to another teen, among other things. The sex offender registry has gotten way out of hand.

  2. Just to be clear, the article doesn’t say it will make them a “sex offender”. It does say that they decided to make baggy clothing in the same category as masturbation, fornication, and urination in public places, which I understand to be sex offenses. Am I wrong about that?

  3. Not that it would happen to me, but I could see having to explain to a potential employer about that arrest record for saggy “britches” (as the mayor called them). Haha.

    The Juvenile Justice Info. Exchange has a good article about it as well. A little more in-depth than CNN’s coverage.
