Ohio lawmakers want sex predator plates

COLUMBUS, Ohio - The cars of sexual predators would be marked by fluorescent green license plates under a unique proposal before Ohio lawmakers.

A bill introduced Wednesday by two legislators, Democratic Rep. Michael DeBose and Republican Sen. Kevin Coughlin, would require all habitual and child-oriented sex offenders to display the easy-to-spot plates. Link

This is a prime example of political bullshit. Sex offenders are such an easy target (like illegal aliens). I'm not dismissing the impact they have on their victims, but how about solving some real problems, like poverty? If anyone thinks that ostracizing convicted sex offenders is really going to reduce the number of sex crimes committed, they need a good slap upside the head. I'd bet that most sex crimes DON'T INVOLVE A CAR.
