Create a problem that doesn’t exist, “solve” it at the expense of others. Typical political grandstanding.
How many registered citizens are there? Almost a million? How many of these folks have committed new crimes? Not many. As we all know, recidivism is extremely low for sex crimes. Never mind how easy it is to land on the registry.
I’m not sure the how closely our plight mirrors that of black folks. No one can tell a sex offender just by looking at the color of our skin. (Better be careful- maybe some political will get the idea to somehow physically mark us). To me, maybe the biggest similarity is the idea of being unfairly judged- having the uninformed think they know something about a class of people which, in reality, they know absolutely nothing about.
Thanks for the article!
