      A few of questions for Mr. Logue: 1) Why do you think proponents of sex offender (SO) laws, e.g., Supreme Court Justice Kennedy, keep spouting this “Frightening and High” recidivism LIE despite more than 20 years of empirical evidence showing the opposite? Study after study after study by some of the most respected research scientist in the country, e.g., professor Mark Ellman, professor Jill Levenson, and others have proved this contention to be a LIE; however, proponents of SO laws seem to just overlook these studies. And 2) Do proponents of SO laws have their own studies made by other respected research scientist that dispute those studies that conclude no high recidivism rate? 3) If so, can you point me to those studies? I am real interested to see for myself the proof proponents have that supports their position. Thank you very much.

        I think it to be complete ignorance to make such a comment when only 3.5 % of sex offenders commit further crimes, and most of them are theft crimes due to ex offenders trying to feed themselves in a society where it is made impossible for them to survive. People like you need to get your heads out of your asses and look up the facts rather than spreading more rumors and lies !

      Can we all do a class action law suite against this senator for defamation of character then? I mean it can be proven that it is not true so it is in fact defamation of character.

      I wonder if this pie chart takes into account some states that consider any little violation of the registry as a “new” “sex offense”
