Wendy Murphy has already won 3 Shiitakes over the years, now she makes her case for a 4th

Ah, Wendy "I Never EVER Met a False Rape Claim" Murphy. She already has the distinction of being the all-time leader on the Shiitake Awards with THREE Shiitake Awards under her belt. That puts her ahead of Bobby Jindal, Mark Lunsford, Ron Book, and even Lauren Book. With this latest article regarding Halloween laws, this gives her a chance to extend her lead.

A dishonorable mention to the Boston Herald for writing such a bad fluff piece but Murphy just outstupids the rest of the stupidity in this article.

Sex offenders have access to kids on Halloween
No Mass. law to stop monsters with candy
Joe Dwinell Sunday, October 07, 2018

Sex offenders are forbidden under state law from driving an ice cream truck, but they can hand out all the candy they want on Halloween in what one child advocate is calling a risky oversight.

“Halloween is like Christmas for sex offenders,” said attorney Wendy Murphy.

“They know they’ll have lots of access to kids and that they can’t get in trouble even though they’re required to stay away from children.”

Missouri, North Carolina, Ohio, Tennessee and Texas all have “no candy” laws that ban sex offenders from handing out treats on Halloween.

In Florida, sex offenders out on parole cannot hand out candy or wear costumes on Halloween night.

Both California and New York have similar laws that allow police to perform unannounced visits to sex offenders’ homes on Halloween night, Oct. 31.

Some states also ban offenders from corn mazes and haunted houses.

The Massachusetts Sex Offender Registry Board does map Level 3 sex offenders on the registry’s website.

The locations of bus stops near where Level 3 sex offenders live — considered the most likely to re-offend — have sparked calls to Bay State schools and the registry board, the Herald was told.

But there are no specific restrictions about participating in Halloween on the books.

Murphy, who represents victims of sexual abuse, said the annual fall tradition of trusting your neighbors is rife with pitfalls.

“Not having a law in place to protect kids on a day when they will excitedly be running toward people they should be running away from exposes kids to serious danger,” she said.

“Massachusetts already has a well-deserved reputation for not effectively protecting children from sexual abuse,” Murphy added.

The state Legislature would need to add any Halloween directive to the sex offender law for it to stick.

The Missouri Supreme Court, according to published reports, did rule that state’s Halloween ban could not be applied retroactively.

As for operating an ice cream truck, Massachusetts law states a sex offender caught doing so faces more than two years in jail or a $1,000 fine. And, the law adds, they can be arrested on the spot.

  1. The Problem here is that most of the offenders that show up on this page and on Absolute Zero Unites are prime examples for the Far Right Alex Jones fans and Far Left Metoo fans are agreeing on the same solutions without realizing that they have to taste their own medicine.
