Another “feel good” law because parents are freaked out about sex offenders with no accurate facts. What was life like back when the registry didn’t exist? There were still so called “sex offenders” back then but because know they are listed and scrutinized by the media, people are panicking.

We need sociologists, psychologists and other mental health professionals to educate parents, communities and politicians about sex offenses and recidivism BEFORE these feel good laws are enacted. Wouldn’t that make more sense? But according to my recent film interview (for my upcoming documentary) with a Weber State University Professor, only a few states have these types of programs.
