I said: I assume that most of those actually fearing vigilantism are on the offender list.

You said: And I assume that most of those actually supporting vigilantism are on the offender list.
____________

Am I missing the punch line?

Wouldn't the hunted (those on the offender list) fear vigilantes and tend not to suppport those who hunt them?

Am I going to groan at your reply?

Those who advocate illegal activities of one type are often engaged in various types of illegalities. One can have rule of law or a rule of outlaws. Vigilantism is rule of outlaws.

gotcha. you are taking the wider view. I was going narrow, that the hunted would fear the hunter.

Maybe grant illegals amnesty and citizenship if they can prove they eliminated 10 predators each, learned english, filed all paperwork properly, etc.

Better trained, yeah right. Just like the ATF are trained to recognize a gun when they see it, yet the assault the kid dressed like a ninja at the University of Georgia and it turns out he doesn't have a gun (as he claimed the whole time they were assaulting him).

That is the problem with the registry in Maine

That's a problem with all of them, and it's the same problem as schools teaching "your Dad's scotch is a drug just like cocaine".

The powers HATE being made to do something they don't want to do (in this case, making a sex offender registry, or giving negative messages about drugs in schools).

So, they make it as useless as possible.
