The United States Supreme Court ruled on Monday that registered sex offenders can have access to social media. I do a lot of my writing on Facebook and you cannot help but see how the young communicate with each other leaving the door wide open for a sicko sex offender to have a field day considering the naiveness of the young not having the total knowledge that comes with experience of life, street smarts or whatever else you want to call lack of experience of the ills of society to protect themselves from all sorts of degenerates but now having to content with registered sex offenders really blows the mind and parents have better take heed. I would say that the children of parents that are allowed to mingle on Facebook or other social media would need a good lecture on what they should be allowed to expose on their social media site.
The following was published by the Federalist Nation: “Does the First Amendment apply to registered sex offenders — even when social media could potentially be used for corrupt purposes?”
“That is the important question that the U.S. Supreme Court has recently been considering. Now, President Donald Trump nominee Neil Gorsuch and the rest of the court have made an unanimous ruling which affects the application of free speech in the 21st century.”
“According to TheBlaze, the highest court in the land has just overruled a law which banned registered sex offenders from accessing social media sites such as Facebook.”
” North Carolina law had banned sex offenders from using those types of websites.”
“It is unlawful for a sex offender who is registered … to access a commercial social networking site where the sex offender knows that the site permits minor children to become members or to create or maintain personal Web pages on the commercial social networking site,” declared the state regulation.”
“However, the Monday morning ruling by the Supreme Court has found that law and others like it to be unconstitutional.”
“To foreclose access to social media altogether is to prevent the user from engaging in the legitimate exercise of First Amendment rights,” argued Justice Anthony Kennedy.”
So there we go, nine people in blackrobes so intelligent that if common sense was staring right at them they wouldn’t see it. Off course this is applicable to the First Amendment of freedom of speech but these sex offenders have been made to register themselves because they have an illness. Has not society labeled for whatever reasons that a sex offender has a illness that is generally incurable and that is the reason they have to be registered in the first place? So now these pedophiles will choose to visit social media sites where it has been known that many young people give out their phone numbers, how about it parents does that worry you! Lets just hope that the fine print in the law covers certain conditions that a sex offender would not be allowed to participate in social media but I would say this ruling has created a worrisome condition that should never have been. This is what you call whenever you create step “A” you cannot agree to it unless you know how it effects step “B” and if justices do not follow this simple formula they should not be judges in the first place.
