This article has several people bemoaning the loss of rights of a person that has made dangerous comments. The one I love best is the complaint that the restraining order goes to far because one can not meet the requirements of it reasonably.... Which then brings up the question of actual laws that restrict people to never being within 1000 yards of a school or church or playground, etc etc... I wonder if this law professor finds any fault with those laws? http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070816/ap_on_re_us/pedophile_blogger Now my personal opinion is that the restraining order is illegal. The man is dangerous BUT he has, as far as anyone knows, not broken any laws. We live in a country of laws. Unless we are going to make laws that criminalize thoughts with no actions then this restraining order is simply wrong. But then I think the laws making people released from prison and done with parole stay 1000 yards from x site illegal as well. They in effect make it impossible for these people to legally live in just about every big town or city in the country. Which is an infringement on those peoples rights. If someone is still dangerous to society, don't release them from prison. Once one has paid their debt to society the Constitutional rights once again apply across the board. I submit that such laws violate the " cruel and unusual" amendment.
