Sometimes I think the sex offender registry is straying from the point of its existence or creation. The registry was intended to inform the public of convicted sexual offenses rather than imposing additional restrictions, limitations, or overreaching boundaries. After all, individuals involved in bank schemes or robberies are not banned or limited in accessibility to banks or possession of credit cards – even while on probation.
Once more the registry has become the focal issue rather than a homeless shelter occupancy rating. The core issues emphasized should have been on how to reduce homeless populations or to create improved housing opportunities. Perhaps it is time for the ACLU, and maybe NARSOL, to undertake an argument as to how to reasonably allow accessibility for all to dial back some laws that exclude human beings from emergency conditions or homeless conditions.
While I am pleased that Rhode Island has settled a lawsuit, I grow concerned that too much negativity and hype has been quickly and rashly applied to sex offense registrants without much thought or study as to its impact on communities and families.
