A database is a powerful tool. Politicians realized it early on and moved quickly to utilize it to full effect. The indenture of convicted sexual deviants was one of the first actions undertaken by two parties. Offenders are indentured. Offenders are forced under threat of felony to maintain them. The databases are property and offenders are the servants of that property. Therefore the registration regime always was intended to be A PUNISHMENT as described under the 13th amendment. Clearly the electronic databases are being used to impose affirmative disability, justified or not. Like P&P the regulatory regime known as SOR DOES indeed tell you what you may not do where you may go, reside or travel.

State AGs will deny the punitive effects claiming the efforts upgrade public safety and outweighs all implications of liberty.
