  • Civil Rights Restoration - or Lack of - is this fair?

    If someone has paid their debt to society, when can they begin their new life?

    victims forgotten

    The fact that people who commit horrid crimes that destroy their own families from their parents to their children never ends and can never be taken back or undone. Never-mind the actual people you Victimized along with their families. Having said that being allowed to live free from prison is something of a privilege in itself alone. As for "voting" and being allowed other "privileges" other law abiding citizens have should be decided by each State and not something decided by the Federal Government so long as the crime didn't involve the Federal Government. You wan't the right to vote move to a State that allows you to restore your voting rights. If you think that is not fair tough tomatoes, the community and the society in that area you wan't to vote in said " no"... just as they did when you broke the law and sent you to jail.

      I do find this interesting:

      Percentages who support “restoring the voting rights of felons”:
      African-American community 75%
      Democrats 48%
      18-34 year olds 47%
      Non-Cuban Hispanics 46%
      Those who did not vote in the presidential election last fall 45%
      Persons undecided about whether they will vote in the 2002 Florida elections 57%

      Republicans 17%
      People who don't care seem to want others to care??? Frankly if you didn't vote than you shouldn't be allowed to decide if people get their voting rights back.

        So which is it by the way? Are you trolling for a newspaper or do you want your right back?

          Some things you do ef up your life forever. They also ef up the lives of a lot of other folks because you were a tard and all you thought about was yourself. If there was a way to go back in time to change things, more than likely you would find something else to ef up on and still be in the same boat you're in now.

          If you could un-ef-up the lives of those you stupid selfish ef-up affected, then 'maybe' restoring 'your' 'rights as a citizen' could be considered.

              There is no such thing as "paying your debt to society". You pay a price but never can set the counter back to zero.

              Looks like we've got ourselves a new troll.
