I think society as a whole is realizing that banning anyone for life from normal social activities is just not humane or practical.
The Pa registry will be outlawed because it is clear that it is punishment. I have a friend that says the registry is needed because he wants to make sure it is safe for his daughter to live where they do. I said, “ Why would you allow your daughter outside alone until she is an adult?” Same reason I don’t leave my $2,000.00 laptop on the front porch.
The 12-24 months should be exciting to see what happens with the registry. It might still be here, but there will be more challenges.
