...Rep. Kleefisch looked at Wisconsin state laws regarding missing children. "When I took a look at the statutes, to realize there's nothing specific in place to require a notifying authorities when a child goes missing. I was surprised by that."
Rep. Kleefisch is proposing changes that would give parents a 24 hour window to report their missing child. After parents miss the 24 hour window, they're committing a felony.
This is what's known as "legislating morality": requiring that the right thing be done.
Such legislation has never been enforceable, except in Statist regimes.
Good intentions. Bad legislation.
UPDATE: By the way, if you think I'm unkind to the Rep., see this from McCain.
