Below is a article that was posted in August of 2015 related to another article that was posted in June of 2015, in light of recent events I thought maybe it was time to resurrect this article. We have come a long way since 2015 in proving that there never was a high re-offense rate that the United States Supreme Court was given by federal prosecutors representing that registered citizens re-offense rate was 80%, The Court use that 80% to justify the need for public safety. We now have enough proof to show that the re-offense rate for people on the registry is less than 1% nowhere close to the 80% that was used to justify the decision in Smith versus Doe, in fact there were studies going back to the 1960s including the Jack study that was done in 1967 that showed a re-offense rate for sexually related crimes of 3.2% over a 15 year. That’s 2/10 of one percent per year nowhere even close to the 80%. Now this information was available to the courts at the time of the Smith versus Doe decision and it was a valid study where as the 80 percentile information was not based on any empirical evidence and since has been proved to be entirely false.
