Ted Jensen cries

Ted Jensen thinks things are unfair. Not all things-after all the convicted sex offender had no issues at all when it came to the 'fairness' of him molesting a child, for which he was convicted of one count of vicarious sexual gratification and one count of child molesting and spent a few years in jail, and a few years on probation. Nope, he had no qualms about the fairness, or lack of, when it comes to his own actions.

And, Richard Wallace, who plead guilty in 1989 to child molesting clearly didn't stop to ponder the fairness of his crime on behalf of the victim.

Now, years later- fairness seems to be top dog in their list of things to start bitching about, and their lawyer is pleading their cries of 'this ain't fair' all the way up the courthouse steps.

A man convicted of sex crimes against a child is challenging the constitutionality of a state statute that retroactively broadened a law regarding Indiana's sex offender registry.

[...]

Attorneys for Jensen and Richard Wallace, who pleaded guilty in 1989 to child molesting, argued before the state Supreme Court on Thursday that legislators violated the Indiana Constitution when they passed the law.


I find it less than amusing, and more than annoying that someone who clearly didn't care about the 'fairness' of their crimes, or the very fact that they were violating a law when they molested a child, suddenly now have popped in with lawyers who want to talk about how a law enacted to protect the innocent people from being victimized is a violation of anything.

These men violated the law that instructed them NOT to molest a child. They violated the child they hurt in a very personal and heinous way, but now- now they want to tell the state that they can't make laws which would help reduce the risk of these same perverts from violating the first law again?

Sorry, I think they might have lost their right to complain about things the moment they opted to hurt a child.
