Reply To: Courage: Yes, sex offender registrants have it too

I’ve always believed that you cannot judge another human being just by their faults and the mistakes they have made in life. Yes it is part of who they are but often, probably in most cases, people have good parts facets to their character. Marty has certainly shown his. My son is a good person. He made a bad mistake but that can’t take away from the fact that he is also a kind, caring, compassionate person who looks out for others.
For at least a week or two before and after Halloween each year the good people of my community town take to our community Facebook page and you would think from their comments that the streets are just crawling with people intent on commiting terrible harm to their children. The few people who suggest that perhaps they are overreacting, are shamed and called awful names. This is what the registry has created. Makes no sense at all.
