U.S. Supreme Court Declines to Hear Louisiana’s Defense of a Law That Stamped ‘SEX OFFENDER’ on Driver’s Licenses

There is little evidence that the sort of public notification practiced by every state delivers benefits that outweigh those costs. Louisiana’s experiment in ritual humiliation, which branded registrants with orange letters they had to display in every transaction that required producing a government-issued ID, compounded those costs without offering any plausible benefits.

Has law enforcement invaded your home?

Always remember this: If you are under the supervision of a parole or probation officer, you are required to answer the door when your PO knocks. You are required to answer the door when law enforcement officers accompany your PO. When law enforcement comes without your PO, though, you are not required to answer the door. If you are no longer under supervision of any kind, and there is no warrant involving you or your home, you definitely are not required to answer the door when law enforcement knocks.
