People are ignorant and that’s why they are easily manipulated by the “government. The registry has nothing to do with “their” concern about sex offenders. It was easily passed as a law because of the perceived fear of society, which was leveraged and the law passed. It was passed to permanently increase the number of personnel on payrolls of law enforcement. If they were seriously concerned, can you imagine how many people could be prosecuted for what they did in High School? I’ll bet the majority of people had sex in High School with someone underage. This behavior is taught by other adults; who are never traced back or prosecuted. In consensual situations, where there is money involved, or a simple agreement to engage, everything is fine until the experience is later perceived in an aberrant way to the person it was “okay” with at the time. This activity goes back to Roman times in the 1500’s.
