Sex offenders in Illinois, Maryland, Missouri and a handful of other states must stay inside their homes on Halloween and post a sign that says 'no candy or treats at this residence,' in an effort to protect children.
Signs mailed to 1,200 violent and child-sex offenders included a picture of a pumpkin and the words, "No candy at this residence." If sex offenders don't put the signs up they face charges of parole violation.
I'm sure there will be the normal complaints about these laws and how unfair they are. And, while I would like to attempt to keep an open mind while they spew their 'it's unfair' whining- I'm quick to recall that it's almost a 100% guarantee that whatever vicious behavior they displayed to their victims was even more unfair and cruel.
