I think what is more confusing is how to gage ones level. If someone came from out of state to attend University there, then the level assigned to them is at the discretion of the registration officers. Based on (from my experience) loose guidelines. In essence a person with child pornography charges could be designated as a level one or level three, depending on how the registration officer perceives that individual and perceives the crime they were convicted of. This adds to the confusion and stress of any registered citizen wishing to move or take a new job, or attend a new school in a new state.
It also surprises me (although I’m not totally discouraged) that many states refuse to recognize the legal claims of another state. This means that if you transfer to another state that refuses to recognize another, then they still have to register you by federal law, but you then again fall into their own vetted system of registration, and everything can change.
It would be nice to have better information on how colleges, cities and states all classify their individual offenders. I’ve spent hours pouring over state laws, which are at best vague and open ended, and I believe purposely worded so, as to allow law enforcement and judicial interpretation. This makes it easy for arbitration or personal discretion on the side of law enforcement. However, for someone trying to just better themselves or survive, it can be an unwinnable and unsuccessful endeavor.

It’s such a no brainer. These laws are not being voted on by the public. We are all just stupid apes fascinated by sex…not scared. We want to know just for the hell of it…but if this were up to a voting public, it would not be just minor petty consensual sex offenders, it would be the hardcore home invaders and ruthless violent people who people would be more worried about. They would be even more hated than most sex offenders. People know by now that the registry is a sham, because it involves consensual relationships for the most part, and people know that. But a ruthless home invader who broke into their neighbors house and tied them up and left them for dead or either killed them…those are the scoundrels that the public would be actually worried about and would want to know if they were living next to one of those people even moreso than a first time sex offender who was a young man and had a consensual sexual relationship with a minor. I’ve heard of 25 year old referred to as kids by mainstream media….unless it involves sex. It has been proven that the mail brain takes up to the mid 20’s to fully develop physically. There is a difference between a 25 yr old who had sex with a willing or even sexually aggressive teen girl, and one who went into their neighbors house and just brutalized an elderly couple. When lawmakers are honest with themselves they will put more priority on the violent people, which is what it should be. Have you ever watched the first 48? Most all of the murders that happen to these people are done by violent guys with long rap sheets…

Those must be the easy going sex offenders that work on campus but still I wonder who is a sex offender. Now law enfoucement can play this internet sex game, bait and give one opportunity via an internet to induce one with all this pretend junk to snag’s one into all this but still who is the victim? Should we all turn over a new fig leaf or open our eyes as they did in the garden of Eden. Where in the bible does it say Government can defraud another. Sure it talks about stumbling. Ordain Ministers don’t give one opportunities to stumble;. They are to defend public crimes. Intent is intent and what person know’s the intent of another? or are is sex a common denominator in all of this ordeal.
Sex is a common norm of nature given to everyone but in these cases, they (law enforcement) want to play the serpent or satan. Why do you all not think there are so many people on this registry all over the state being conned if you will up into all this pre planned sex operation induced by these Ministers of God for Justice. It seems that some people are conditioned by this Man-made thing… We all need to stand up for all this. Its no better than gun control. One is mind controled via this internet and of course an enticement. Its getting caught up and controling one, discriminating and predicting, and the other is in public and a real life ordeal

For starters, you have to congratulate Arizona State University for hiring registered sex offenders. I think that is a remarkable and commendable action for the university to look beyond the fear rhetoric.
The sad part is the State of Arizona has no process to allow any registered sex offender from its registry. Arizona requires its offenders to register for life with police in addition to renewing an Arizona issued state ID for driver license annually.
Sex offender registries, especially within college campus life pose no real purpose or value. ASU students are not checking smartphones for the latest offender address to determine if he/she is going to go out socializing. What purpose or advantage would a registrant be in a classroom setting? Campus environments are to learn and apply a bit of corrective behavior in a context where collaboration and erudition are essential towards successful outcomes. Registries become a distraction and have the potential to do the same in the classroom if registrants are openly identified.
Law enforcement perhaps should take a look at the United Kingdom and its registry programs. The registry is only for law enforcement viewing only and the maximum time allowed on its registry is seven years before dropping off. Perhaps if education takes a good look at other successful schools around the globe, both university and law enforcement can reduce expensive fear-based programs and implement excellent educational and rationale programs.
