Reply To: Mr. Weiner, THIS is what life as a registered sex offender is like



It is breathtakingly easy to destroy someone’s life by accusing them of a sexual offence and virtually impossible to defend yourself if you are the accused. In colonial times, public shaming was a typical punishment for minor crimes. People were placed in stocks and left there for a few days so citizens could make fun of them and throw things at them. Now we use public registries instead of stocks and the shaming never stops.
