Similar Crimes, Different Conditions.

While sex offenders in Simi Valley, Ca are prohibited from any type of Halloween festivities a man in Simmesport, LA was arrested for violating his registered sex offender contract by participating in Halloween activities. Washington, was arrested Wednesday with failure to provide proper identification and sex offender violation. He was caught handing out candy and participating in a haunted house; the law is that all sex offenders cannot wear masks, hoods or disguises for any type of holiday where any type of gifts or candy or anything are distributed to minors. I am not sure if that means he can pass out candy and participate in stuff as long as he is not in disguise or what; but if that is the case why are sex offenders in Louisiana granted more privileges than those in California? Don’t you think there should be a universal law addressing every situation they may find themselves in? Why don’t they all get the same type of treatment if they committed the same type of crime?
