Watch Debate – Should the Sex Offender Registry be Abolished?

Everyone who watched the debate last night – All the laws requiring those convicted of sex offenses to put their names in a registry should be abolished – will agree; Emily Horowitz, defending the affirmative, was cool, calm, collected, and convincing. She was the voice of reason and facts in the debate. NARSOL is so proud to call her our friend. Thank you, Emily!

Emily reports that 160 persons were physically in the audience, and that another 5,000 watched the live stream. We do not know how many voted pre- and postdebate, but the percentage results are these:
