    People who break the law in regard to this matter discussed here could be "asked" to register on a website such as Jo Your Self. This could help a lot with their inner issue so to speak of. Hope you agree with me.

    Captain, it's that age old question about the spirit of the law versus the letter of the law or common sense versus no sense at all.
    Why are stop signs placed only at intersections and not in the middle of the block? Because they were placed there for safety, not just to make you stop, so when you come to a virtual stop and it is clear that there is no other traffic at or close to that intersection, you have achieved the spirit of of or the purpose for that law.
    Some police officers understand this while others insist the sign says stop, not virtually stop.
    I've often wondered what those letter of the law folks would do if they were traveling on an interstate highway in Georgia and read the minimum speed limit signs that were posted at 40 miles per hour and happened upon an accident scene with flashing emergencies vehicles all around.
    Would they obey the letter of the law and buzz right through at 40 miles an hour or would they understand the spirit of the law and slow to a safe enough speed to ensure safety?
    I don't think the authors of this law intended it to apply as strictly in this case as say one that would have different circumstances and a bigger age gap.

    Asdfas hit the nail on the head. this is a case where a law has gone wrong. Stupid application of a law, a waste of tax payer money and true to the trend of locking up too many people in Alabama.

    This is a classic Romeo and Julliet case where all registered former offenders are lumped together. He is living with his "victim" which should tell us something. Now, because of some draconian SS registry thing, tax payers are going to get hosed for his further incarceration. He completed NO NEW CRIME other than some registration thing. Grrr . . .
