    I don't disagree with your sentiments Gelston, especially the second one.

    I think if a person serves their time, then they should have their rights restored - they paid the due society has asked of them.

    I'm all for it, except in certain violent actions. I believe if you murder, rape, child molester, etc. - the egregious bodily harm inflicted on someone else - that there should be a steeper price. We could discuss what specific acts this would apply to, and I'm all for a surgical approach to it's applicability, but I do not think a child molester should have the right to vote on laws which affect their actions against minors, just as an example.

    Things like this? For me personally, hell no. It's great if he is reformed and wants to make a difference. Make it with speaking to the youth, or some other way. Can you imagine being that Officers family, seeing him sitting and advising the Police board? Fuck that.

    I agree, all American citizens should keep their right to vote, even if they're incarcerated.

    I don't disagree.. and just like you have most of your other rights restored upon release, your right to vote should be restored when you leave prison and have paid your debt to society. While you are in prison though, no. You don't have any rights there because you've done something so heinous you need to be caged away from society.. why should you have a say in how that society runs?

    The only right I believe you should forfeit is the right to bear arms when you are convicted of a violent crime.

    Agreed. Give em an inch, they take a mile. Let em strip voting rights from just the super nasty bad guys, next thing you know anyone who ever got charged with anything can't vote.
