Reply To: Colorado ruling sparks deeper debate over sex offender registries


Two things: I believe the registry should only be available to Law Enforcement. The regustry puts peoples lives in jeaprody. I have heard of two murders as a result of the registery, neighbors of the ones who had already done their time.

As I sit here writing this with tears running down my face from pain I feel I am being punished also. The judge said she was going to make an example of my son. He was given an excessive sentence for what he did. Already in prison going on 12 years. I am older and just went through cancer etc. Now having extreme pain in my neck and shoulder. I need my son badly. Its difficult to do many things. He needs his family as well. He was successful in all other aspects of his life but somehow got on the wrong path. He is now a better man than I could ever have imagined. People make mistakes, people learn and people change. These offenders pay the rest of their lives !
