The problem is that so many people think that if they or anyone else “defends” someone on the registry, they are also, in effect, defending their crime as well. While there is no rational connection between the two, that’s the feelings of many people. There are probably people chastising the person defending the registrant that deep down know that they are not connected, but are afraid of the consequences of joining the side of the defender, so they go with the mob mentality.
