sex offender license plates

Convicted sex offenders in Ohio may be soon be forced to drive cars with a special license plate denoting their offense.... Offenders would face a criminal charge if they are caught without the plate, and enablers who loan vehicles to known offenders would face criminal charges, too.

This is just another shaming punishment and one that will have no effect on the number of sex offenses.
i agree here. sick sex offenders will still commit their crimes, not fear this new punishment. and what about other citizens who may be happy to maim or kill these sex offenders, now that they are pointed out for the world to see? do we also need plates for those convicted of murder? corporate executives who endanger the public? oh, i can see a future rush on the part of republicans to call out those convicted of marijuana possession.
