Wendy Whitaker Goes To Jail

Posted in Religion by chamblee54 on August 28, 2009



Wendy Whitaker is back in the news. At least some of the news…the fishwrapper has not reported the latest chapter in her story. Thank you Creative Loafing, which is physically printed by the fishwrapper. ( Ever notice how skinny the paper is on Tuesday? That is when they take in outside jobs. Of course, lately it is skinny everyday) A HT goes to the unlikely team of Griftdrift and Peach Pundit. There is a recent post at Chamblee54 on this subject.

Mrs. Whitaker is the lady who gave a high school classmate a blow job, and became a registered sex offender(RSO). She is now in jail. It seems like her husbands name was on a lease, and they moved into a residence that was previously out of bounds. The authorities locked her up because she did not inform them that she had moved.

The laws on RSO have a lot of provisions. They are not allowed to live within a certain distance of schools, parks, and churches. ( Across the street from an IRS office is permitted) An RSO is not allowed to volunteer at a church. And, as Mrs. Whitaker learned, they must register every time they move. There are stories of people getting locked up because of confusion over how often they should register,or big brother not getting the note.

Many Florida communities have tough laws, establishing boundaries for places that RSO are forbidden to live. A bridge under a causeway is one place where RSO are permitted. Many feel that driving RSO out of established communities makes it difficult to monitor their activities.

A prominent Florida lobbyist, Ron Book, had a horrifying experience with a nanny. Mr. Book pushed for establishment of many of the punitive Florida laws. Mr. Book is beginning to regret his lust for revenge after seeing some of the unintended consequences.

Politicians always want to be seen as being tougher on crime than anyone else. Some of the laws they create cause more problems than they solve. It will take genuine courage to undo the damage.

    Piers: In a sexually repressed society this idea of registered sex offender amounts to cruel and unusual punishment and the restrictions placed upon human lives serves no positive purpose. One more example of the road to hell being paved with good intentions. Americans must grow up and accept personal responsibility rather than looking to the beast of government to “solve” all our perceived problems.
