Registry, they say, is not a form of punishment, but then it is not voluntary either!
I see no prospect of a better life in this country while being in the registry. One wrong move, even a minute one such as being a day late to report the change of address, being at a wrong place(!), etc., can land a registrant to years behind the bar.
Life is filled with constant fear even though one knows that he/she is not a monster. One just wants to live his/her life, survive.
This registry is moving us away from the society, and that’s what it is designed for. And they say that the recidivism rate for sex offenders is very very high, and meanwhile they take everything away from those that have been labeled as sex offenders. This whole sex offender registry, probation, etc. is filled with fear, lies, greed, and it’s only getting worse.
