Nominate 2009 Worst State in the Union

Florida was voted Worst State in the Union of 2008, but it was not by much. Florida was still sending Former Offenders to live under bridges, increasing residency restrictions, and the condoning of vigilante style justice kept FLA-USA ahead of the pack. So will Florida claim ANOTHER national championship this year (And I don't mean Urban Meyer's stinking Gators)? Or will one of the other states wrest Florida's long-standing title of dumbest state in the union away this year? You decide!

I would have to vote for Missouri this year. Those brainless politicians keep passing empty feel-good sex offender laws and violating the Constitution. Placing signs on the lawns of former offender at Halloween time, regardless if their crimes never involved rape or if the offenders are young children or the fact not one trick-or-treater has ever been assaulted by a person on the registry (less than 10% re-offend).
Now this states poor decision-making will cost them plenty. Hope they will enjoy higher taxes and fewer police officers to protect them from real criminals. You will feel safer knowing police are watching that man who urinated in public years ago while that gangster crack-head is meeting up with your kids on Halloween night.

Florida's poised for a repeat! Ron Book, the Julia Tuttle Causeway, the opposition to halfway housing for registrants, stating residency laws are backfiring then suggesting the solution is to increase residency restrictions, Valigator, Gov. Crist. But to their credit, Crist gave a Romeo case a full pardon.

Texas again, as Gov. Perry Vetoed a bill to allow "Romeo and Juliet" cases to be removed from the registry. Texas had over 4000 registrants who were placed on the registry as young as age 10!

Lets not forget Michigan, with letting the homeless registrant die in the cold, and the AG Mike Cox using RSOs to promote his agenda.
