“Unjust and Ineffective” Says The Economist Magazine

America has pioneered the harsh punishment of sex offenders. Does it work?

The Economist magazine, in this online article describes many of the disturbing issues regarding the sex offender registries, including the fact that teenagers are, in increasing numbers, being made to register—many for a lifetime.

An interesting, informative and very comprehensive overview of The Economist article, as well as some additional information and opinions can be found in this article titled “Rethinking ‘Sex Crimes’ and Sex Offender Registries” on the website of The Technology Liberation Front.
