Majority of sex offenses are committed by those related to the victims, i.e. near family relatives. How are these new restrictions going to stop sex offenses?
Rather North Carolina ought to put these people labelled as sex offenders in a separate county, may be, like in a segregation like in the good ol’ days, like in a concentration camp?; and while the state is at its best, may be implement its eugenic program like it did to the blacks not long ago?

Do you really think that everyone that has been convicted of a sex crime is guilty? “Although defendant presented evidence to contradict testimony of c.l. and m.l., upon a motion to dismiss, such discrepancies must be resolved in favor of the state.” and thus ended my freedom for a crime that never happened. Only in N.C. could this kind of abuse of power be possible.

People who rely on emotions to tell them what is right or wrong instead of facts will never be able to understand that.

I still hope my story will put doubt in a few minds, But it does seem hopeless on this issue at times. Governments are corrupt and always will be i guess, and the blind follow them like little lost puppies waiting to be told what to believe and how how to set about furthering their agenda of corruption.

I know. Most people won’t even consider a different perspective until it happens to them or someone they know. However the registries are growing so rapidly and becoming increasingly more oppressive that the numbers of those effected by it are growing too.

i hope you are not serious. i can’t imagine anyone wanting to return to that type of environment. who’s next; Jews and gypsies?

It’s not about fair or just. Nor is it about protecting the children. The laws are all about banishment and messing with offenders lives until they die. It’s the new leper colony.

Its simplier than even that. Its about money and votes.

Absolutely ridiculous!! All the punishment of sex offenders. Let them do their time and get on with their lives. So unfair, so, so unfair!!

Since damn near everything sexual can be considered an “offense” these days, this registry is growing faster than the speed of a zombie apocalypse.
What’s going to happen when nearly half of the country is on the registry for some type of nonsense sex offense? Will people finally open their eyes to it’s ridiculousness when they find out a loved one has been charged with a sex crime?
How about the people in government? Let’s see one of their teenagers end up sexting their BF/GF in high school and watch how fast that politician will clear his/her kid’s name and plead with the judge and prosecutor that their son/daughter doesn’t belong on the registry. Ha! Cuz that’s exactly what they’d do.

I went to the ‘news’ site link, but there is no video, just the text of the article and some photos of the ‘feel-good’ signs at park entrances. Maybe the ‘parents’ looked like the cowardly fools they are, and that is bad for the overall business of the propagandists, ah I mean ‘njews.’….

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

I too am new to this abuse. If I had not had a family member condemed as a sex offender I would not have understood the graveness of this label. It is so saver that feels like we are so convinced this label give us the right to be judge, jury and executioner. Our politioners are getting the votes while we fight against each other. And they sit back and take our taxes and smile…The register is unconstitutional and why states want to add to them is even worse…

Two people I once worked with became registered sex offenders. One drove from VA to FL to be with a 14 year old girl. The girl of course was a cop and he was arrested, posted bail and never served a day.
The other guy was supposed to meet a 14 year old boy in a park who also was a cop. He drove through a local park, never stopped, never even got within 100 yards of the “boy” but was pulled over, arrested, put in jail for about 18 months was found guilty and served 7 years of a 50 ish year sentence.
Keep in mind in both case the literally no victim.
Both were found guilty and both became registered sex offenders. They had to do the classes and were on probation for many years.
They are both incredibly intelligent men and enjoyed working for them both but of course as registered sex offenders neither of them could land a decent job again.
From the start I was 100% convinced they would NEVER doing anything like that again the reality is under our system they are effectively punished for life.
This isn’t right and something needs to change.

They are both incredibly intelligent men but as registered sex offenders neither of them could land a decent job and still haven’t after all these years.
Under our system they will effectively be punished until death.

Another “feel good” law because parents are freaked out about sex offenders with no accurate facts. What was life like back when the registry didn’t exist? There were still so called “sex offenders” back then but because know they are listed and scrutinized by the media, people are panicking.
We need sociologists, psychologists and other mental health professionals to educate parents, communities and politicians about sex offenses and recidivism BEFORE these feel good laws are enacted. Wouldn’t that make more sense? But according to my recent film interview (for my upcoming documentary) with a Weber State University Professor, only a few states have these types of programs.

Dear Robin Vanderwall, please contact me; it is very urgent. I need help. I am a mother in my 70’s. I have a son who was railroaded and sent to jail in 1992; he served 7 years for a crime he didn’t commit. The attorney I hired didn’t do the job we expected of him, and refused to help my son to prove him innocent. He just said to do a plea bargain (alford plea) and let him serve his time. He said he would get out in a few months. That did not happen, The DA changed his mind, and tricked us into a whole different situation. My problem now is getting my son off this sex offender registry. The DA’s office is finding ways to block him and telling us he is going to have to have an attorney. We are both on Soc.Sec. and can’t afford to pay an attorney. My son has been mentally handicapped since birth from a brain injury. Please contact me, asap so I can fill in the rest of his story. I think we can help one another, as I feel these laws are unjust and over done.
