There are some indications that the facts about Halloween and registered sex offenders are being heard by some. The amount of fear-mongering, Halloween-hysteria media pieces is marginally less, but far too much still exists. Some of the situations are egregious, with registrants in one area being required to take off work if need be in order to be locked up for five hours on Halloween night. Law enforcement and “Halloween safety” information still are focused on the non-existent risk posed by those on the registry. In response to these irresponsible, wasteful, and futile policies, NARSOL issued this press release to major media across the nation.
