These laws MUST be among the most unjust in U.S. history. They’ve been fueled by 3 things, including an uneducated citizenry:
1. Unscrupulous politicians who use them to fire up those who don’t know how unjust the laws are, how dishonestly they’ve been misrepresented.
2. Overly zealous prosecutors who have called them “easy win” cases and use them for leverage to step up job wise and
3. Drama -driven media, esp. Fox (or Faux) “news” media which wouldn’t know the truth if it hit them in the face. It’s ironic the sins of Roger Ailes and Bill O’Reilly when their company used these laws to spout the worst lies about those on the registry and the laws. The recent expo that showed the Supreme Court created the laws against offenders based on the most egregious lie about sex offenders re-offending is the worst and how many people know about this?
If you are someone who cares about the truth and justice, educate yourself…You’re in for lots of surprises.
