LEON, Iowa, Feb. 24 (UPI) -- An Iowa sex offender who belongs to a church that believes electricity is evil has asked a judge to exempt him from wearing an electronic monitor.
Scott Smith was given a short jail sentence and five years probation for molesting two teenage girls in 2003. At the time, he was a member of the Brotherhood of Christ and his wife and children still belong to the group.
At a hearing Thursday, Ron Livingston, leader of the Brotherhood, testified that the group believes literally that electricity can cause people to disobey God, the Des Moines Register reported. Livingston said an electronic monitor could harm Smith’s children.
Smith has been refusing to wear the monitor. Judge Sherm Phipps could order him sent to prison or could grant him an exemption.
A social worker testified that she believes Smith is unlikely to commit another crime.
Some sick fucking wacko, who belongs to a weird religious cult is refusing to wear an electronic tag, because he believes that electricity makes people disobey God?
Listen, you child molesting prick!  Don’t do the crime if you can’t do the crime!
You’re all concerned that this little electronic tag might offend your twisted, fucked up religious sensibilities? Afraid it might ‘make you evil’?
Well, fuck you.

I hate to tell you this, but MOLESTING UNDERAGE GIRLS IS EVIL! If this judge grants this weirdo an exemption, he should be thrown into the same padded room.
A child molester worried about an electronic tag?
I’d but two on him, just to make sure.
Oh, and fill his pockets with batteries.

I'll believe it when it's verified that he has no electricity in his home (and hasn't since becoming a member of the chruch), doesn't drive a car, doesn't own a refrigerator, and home schools his children

I'm torn. If the guy is totally against electricity, I think it's ok to keep electricity away from him.

That doesn't mean I wouldn't shoot him in the head. He didn't say anything about gunpowder.

Ozzy : I don't care if it turns out he's 100% genuine. You can't alter a punishment, just because the criminal finds it offensive.

Etcher : Shoot him with batteries
