      Why does it seem as though all these articles just beat a dead horse while getting nowhere in changing these laws? I recently had to update my registration and couldn’t help but notice all the legal jargon… Pursuant to whatever #this.1. 2 and pursuant to whatever .2 followed by more threats of imprisonment, the entire thing is so bloated with gotchyas for violations…

      If they want a damn registry, have it private and any violations thereof to be levied by a fine for each occurance. But oh no, the fear of pedo rapists is too great. And everyone on the list is just that and nothing less. It’s sad, but I have a few more decades left and hopefully I’ll die and be done with this sham. THEN I’ll be free of the registry.

      Facts should matter

      All that crap you’re made to sign and initial will be the size of a phone book soon! Especially with all the tinkering with SORNA.

      All this is done of course to cover THEIR behinds, not ours.

      Vigilantes are not going to stop coming after Us, even when they know they’ll ‘Probably’ do Jail and or Prison Time. They all figure the Attorney they get will have the Judge they want, to let them off the hook for trying to Assassinate Us. They’re already seen as ‘Heroes’ insofar as The Media and Society as a whole goes. and that’s all BEFORE AND AFTER Halloween or any other Holiday! Even if the Person gets a Life sentence for killing one of Us and potentially other family members within the house just for being related to any of Us, that’s no consolation for those of Our People that survive…WE’RE STILL DEAD, and They’re treated like Heroes even inside Prison and Paroled ASAP. We need National and State legislators with BALLS that will introduce and pass Legislation to END THIS REGISTRY so that the ‘Norm’ for people to hunt and kill Us, won’t be one anymore!!!

      This right here! We’re made to forfeit our actually privacy safety and security just so so STRANGER on the internet can garner a false sense of safety and security. That’s an insane amount of entitlement.

      Just the other day, Joe Biden at Gettysburg proclaimed, and I quote:

      “There’s no room for hate in America.”

      Wow Really? That sentiment is intellectually dishonest because there seems to be PLENTY of hate (not to mention scorn, animosity and resentment) for those forced to register.

      @ H n H:

      In response to: “It’s sad, but I have a few more decades left and hopefully I’ll die and be done with this sham. THEN I’ll be free of the registry.”

      Not if you live in Florida. Betting there are a fair number of dead registrants in other sates as well.

      Someone needs to do their research a little better, check your statistics please.

      Let’s see what kind of hard data we can get out of this report: the total number of prisoners released was 401,288, of those 381,093 had not had a prior sexual conviction and 20,195 had a sexual conviction. We know that 7.7% or 1555 of the 20,195 with a prior sexual conviction were rearrested for another sex crime, but less than half of those were reconvicted which comes out to be 3.8% or 778. This gives you an average yearly re-offense rate, over the nine-year period, of 4/10 of one percent of 1% and that would be for the “worst of the worst” sexual offenders — rape and sexual assault offenders.

      Get the full information “a limited study done by the department of justice still proves that registrants have the lowest re-offense rate”
