Photographing farm > crime than vehicular homicide

State Senator Jim Norman, a Republican from Tampa, wants to make it a First Degree Felony to photograph a farm without the owner's permission. A first degree felony carries a maximum penalty of 15 years in prison, a $10,000 fine, and prohibits you from ever owning a firearm or voting again.

This means that the second conviction for enticing a child into a building to molest him is a lesser crime than taking a picture of cow or an orange tree from the side of the road. Sexual battery on a child over the age of twelve that does not use force is only a second degree felony.

Tell me again how Republicans are champions of the Constitution. Sorry, they are no better than the Democrats.

Maybe they can make it a Class 1 Felony to vote for a victimless crime.
