Here in New Hampshire, the registry is one of the main sources of revenue for the state – along with the prison systems. Come on vacation, leave on probation. The state is run by ultra-conservatives who are ‘tough on crime’ except when it comes to police officers and those in government committing crimes. The divide between the connected and non-connected here is the deciding factor whether someone sees the inside of a jail/prison cell – much less a courtroom.
If the registry gets abolished everywhere else, New Hampshire will be one of the last holdouts. They will drag their feet because they LOVE that free money they can distribute among each other and their friends.
