      I have such mixed feelings about this. I know there is alot wrong with the registry, but I just don’t believe that it does nothing good. I know alot of people are on it that shouldn’t be, but I would rather know who they are and keep my kids away from them all then not know who they are and end up not keeping them away from the one who would really hurt them.

        The one most likely to hurt your children is someone you already know. They are not on the registry. They have never been arrested for a sex crime. You trust them, and so do your children. They are someone you would leave your child with. And, believe it or not, when your child tells you this person did something bad to them, there will be at least a smidgen of doubt.

          Isn’t intolerance what has gotten us into this mess to begin with?

      I see a couple obvious problems with it. When every offender regardless of circumstance or tier level congests the registry website, the hard case offenders will remain hidden in plain sight! The next time some kid ends up missing, law enforcement agents end up shaking down 1400 low risk nobodies to get to the few actual possibilities. By then the kid will be dead while they shrug their shoulders and cop out with a “sorry, we did all we could. Damn sex offenders.” Laws like this are a financial drain on the taxpayer, it’s counterproductive and congests the court system with a bunch of rif raf bull s__t that should’ve been settled with a fine you pay by mail. What’s the penalty for not registering with selective service? I bet it’s less than a s/o registry violation. For god sake, it’s a clerical issue, not so much criminal in and of itself when you weigh apples to oranges. They need to ditch the registry and put that tax money into school books for the public schools that keep going under.

        Agree, except that the saved money should go to sexual abuse prevention programs.

      These guys that did something stupid and probably never do it again are being shot beat up denied jobs but expected to pay fines or go back to jail. Everything is wrong with it. It doesn’t only affect them but also their families. Get rid of it quick.

      I say there’s a lot wrong with it but I also agree with some of it. The problem I have is I’m a rso and I made a mistake when I was 19 and went to prison for it and when I got out I had to register for ten years then in 2011 they added 15 more years. I’m the lowest risk they is to reoffend and I was granted not to be managed as a so while I was incarcerated because the corrections facility did not see me as one. Why can’t the Supreme Court see that it causes problems. I can’t find a job so I can take care of my two boys.
