      safe rule of thumb. Qualifications to be a horrible law:
      1) Passed in shady rooms with no oversight. Blank check laws that can be filled in with anything later.
      2) Named after a victim, family member or a tragedy. Adam Walsh, Meagan,Patriot, ect….
      3) Requires Hitleresque catch phrases, propaganda, and straw man arguments to garner support: If it will save only one child, Think of the children, ect….

      I am against more laws as we have too many now already that confound their ability to serve any intended purpose already BUT if we must have a new law it should be that any law that fits or has ever fit into one or all of the above three categories needs to be removed from the books. Always has been and always will be the tools of tyrants and dictators..

        I maintain that as far as those who are suspected, arrested, or convicted of a sexual offense — and this actually applies to everything else — that if one law were in place, our work would be done. That one law would read that before any laws were passed, the person(s) proposing them would be required to include evidence-based support showing the law addressed a real problem that needed solving and that the law would address and solve the problem.

      Explain to me how the US government did there study on recidivism rate in 1991 and results were 9% and every study our government has done since rate are below 5% and they had the results in 1994 and enacted the registry anyways? If i was a suspicious guy i would think there’s another motive. The studies are on Doj & Smart.gov website or ask me i have them, also every state in our country has done studies and they all show results below 5% because they said high recidivism (80%) is why we need to have a registry plus they said ” joe public” will know who the dangerous offenders are, what? Do you know that the most violent SO’s are on the registry but the public can’t see there profile only law enforcement can, what? Every reason “they” said they need the registry. They spead it pretty thick when “they” have a objective. The government has some of there studies (5%) on there website and pushed the laws through and havn’t taken them down, What…..?

      I was 19 when I was convicted of possession of child porn of my girlfriend. We had been together for roughly two years. The craziest part is this state has an age of consent of 16 years old, with a 3 year “romeo and juliet” clause meaning you can be up to 3 years apart if they’re under 16. She was 15 and I was 17 when we met. We had a legal, consensual sexual relationship for two years. Sexting was big 8 or 9 years ago among the high school crowd and of course we did it. I had pictures of her from the beginning of our relationship (when she was 15, under age of consent) and it was deemed child porn. DESPITE sexual relations being perfectly legal, photos were not. There is a restraining order and she is now my “victim” of a sex crime. It’s 9 years later and I was just denied a pardon, 4 years left on the registry. I will never be a physician. I don’t understand this world.
