    Consider the source. It is the deep South and Jim Crow is alive and well with a new set of victims subject to manufactured fear and hate. Freedom From the Tyranny of the Majority must have fallen off the copies of the Constitution they use (or don’t) !

      Consider also that a victim advocate actually stated in the article the registry is broken and is practically worthless. And the hillbilly sheriff’s deputy made less than a compelling argument.

    Just as alabama registry is pointless so too is calibama …its deception ..its a sham…punitive …….so much of a decoy that over nine out of ten times the next ‘sex’ crime will be from someone NOT in a manufacturered setup state listing…..over nine out of ten times ..!………..note also last friday Ray Hinton was released to freedom after 30 years on death row from an alabama prison for a crime he didn’t commit…he said prosecutors
    will have to answer to GOD…………………… county ca are you listening.
