As I stated in an earlier post, the bill that passed the House and Senate is NOT Jessica’s Law. This bill is a slap in the face to every kid who has been violated by an adult. This bill will do NOTHING to protect kids. An extra two years in jail? Please, you can serve more time for kicking a dog.
You might read in the paper tomorrow that Jessica’s Law passed and Random Politician #1 will say “It was the right thing to do for the kids” and Random Politician Number #2 will say “I hope our mothers and fathers feel safer.” You know the usual political rhetoric.
Why couldn’t just one elected official have the testicular fortitude to submit a stronger bill? Well, at least the females have an excuse.
