Is this right?

While I don't want anybody's babies getting fucked with on Halloween, this seems a little Orwellian for me. From

"At 5 p.m., we are going to require all of our probation/parole/pardon sex offenders to report to the office and they'll remain here from 5 to 10:30 p.m," agent Gerald Black, with the South Carolina Department of Probation, Parole and Pardon, told CNN affiliate WYFF.

Authorities in Roanoke, Virginia, will do the same. "You have a safer public. We have all the offenders in this area that are on probation or parole in one location. We know where they are," Randy Phillips with the Department of Corrections told CNN affiliate WSLS.

Ummmm...maybe I'm a dumbass, but if these parole and probationed sex offenders pose a threat to society on any night, not just Halloween night, why were they paroled or probationed in the first place?

Or is this just so you don't have to deal with the dry cleaning when all those clown suits need to be cleaned up?

C'mon kids, let's play name that serial killer!
