Paedos sue cops for slapping ‘no treat-or-trick’ signs on their homes to protect kids claiming it breaches THEIR rights

The Sun Incident 0 month ago

SHAMELESS paedos are suing cops for slapping “no treat-or-trick” signs on their homes to protect kids – claiming the warning breaches THEIR rights.

A group of convicted sex offenders in Georgia, US, is taking the Butts County Sheriff’s office to court for “violating” their rights to free speech and privacy.

Kids are warned off trick-or-treating at the homes of convicted perverts in Butts County, Georgia
Dad-of-three, Butts County Sheriff Gary Long has two decades of law enforcement experience

They were outraged after Butts County Sheriff Gary Long got his deputies to place the “Warning! No Trick-or-Treat at this address!!” signage in the front gardens of more than 200 sex offenders registered in the county.

Three perverts have filed a lawsuit to fight against the very public warning ahead of Halloween, reports Fox News.

The sheriff – who placed similar warnings outside paedos’ properties last year – said on Facebook the signs were being used to keep young trick-or-treaters safe.

Sheriff Long added that the force was merely following Georgia law and protecting children.

The signs were installed after a local Halloween festival was cancelled, and local streets were flooded with trick-or-treaters going door-to-door.

Convicted sex offenders should not have rights!

But, the paedos’ lawyer, Mark Yurachek, told Fox 5 Atlanta: “The law allows the sheriff to put a list of registered sex offenders at his office, at the courthouse [and] on the internet.

“It does not allow him to go door-to-door telling people you have a sex offender living next door to you.

“I’m just not sure that this kind of action makes your kids any safer. It just makes your constitutional rights less safe.”

Yurachek alleged it was also “trespass” as the sheriff’s department was “coming onto their property and putting the signs on there.”


The lawyer added that as Georgia’s State Sex Offender Registry doesn’t stipulate that perverts should have such signs installed on their property, they shouldn’t be forced to do so by local deputies.

Yurachek said: “They are individuals who have been brave enough to not be afraid to let the public know that they are registered sex offenders, but are also not willing to tolerate this unlawful action by the sheriff.”

According to the Butts County Sheriff website, Sheriff Long – who is married with three children – has had nearly two decades in law enforcement.


He’s received considerable support from residents for his initiative, with Nancy Wood commenting on Facebook: “Sheriff Long I stand with you. Keep putting the signs up every Halloween!

“Convicted sex offenders should not have rights!!”

Elizabeth Jinks added: “I agree. They lost their ‘rights’ when they committed that heinous crime. Stand your ground, Sheriff Long!!”

Deborah Tucker defended the paedos though, saying: “It does not say what type of sex crime. Some are from teens having sex.

“Sex crime covers a huge amount and some aren’t involving sex at all.”

This prompted angry comments from the likes of Jennifer Renee, who said: “I would rather put a sign in every yard to made damn sure kids are safe from predators.”

Rhonda Lewallen weighed in with, “a paedophile is a paedophile even it is a 18 year old young man having sex with a young pubescent girl [sic].”

A judge is expected to rule on the Butts County initiative tomorrow.
