OR: Sex-offender stings make it ‘safer for everyone’

During a sting operation last week, state troopers contacted 16 registered sex offenders, some of whom failed to make an annual report or disclose whether they had a change of address. Full Article

    “If we have offenders who are noncompliant, then we can’t assure that they are meeting conditions of probation and parole. If we can get them accountable and keep them on the right track, it’s safer for everyone,” Duncan said.

    Wait a second…OR has people under supervision who are not keeping current on registration? Umm, maybe the POs need a talking to! And as with the MA “lost” RCs…how much did crime spike by not knowing where they were or by not having correct info? I’m guessing zilch.

    What I find interesting is he mentioned probation or parole. How many registrants are not? It is punitive.

    …And not a single one of them had committed any kind of offense or crime or that would clearly have been stated. They were law abiding citizens just beaten down by the registry and couldn’t take it any more.

      @Eric:
      Yeah, this is where Paul Harvey would step in with, “the rest of the story,” which in this case is, “and absolutely nothing happened.” Good old media outlets and LEOs, beat the hysteria drum about unRCs, but neglect to follow up on–or even mention!–the result of their not remaining current.

    First of all, I take no pity on anyone who purposely moves and doesn’t comply with the law. Yes, the law sucks badly. No, that doesn’t mean they should ignore it. This is a quick way to get into trouble because even though we know registration is punitive and certainly has to be unconstitutional in several ways, we need to clear the hurdles to get registration laws thrown out.

    Additionally, this was not a “Sting”. This was a militarized show of force by the police i’m sure. There was nothing about a sting operation here.

  5. Not Really

    Someone doesn’t know what a sting is.
