Sex Offender Laws May Do More Harm Than Good

End Registration of Juveniles, Residency Restrictions and Online Registries

One of the world’s leading independent organizations dedicated to defending and protecting human rights, Human Rights Watch,  believes, as many of us do, that “Laws aimed at people convicted of sex offenses may not protect children from sex crimes but do lead to harassment, ostracism and even violence against former offenders.”

  1. Steve A. Mizera

    To eradicate child molestation three things are required in addition to abolishing the ex-sex offender registries that don’t work.
    1. Legislation that mandates sexual abuse awareness in the first grade and repeated every year upgrading to age appropriate,
    2. Hold parents responsible for failure to protect their children when they are abused, if they neglect to protect them.
    (Note the parent of a Sandusky victim who wanted to know where her son’s underwear were when he returned from an overnight visit with the predator not once but twice)
    3. All adults who interact with children must be registered, which would include plethysmograph (for males), forbidden to be alone with a child (two adult rule), and warning what the consequences will be if they sexually abuse a child.

  2. Tired of hiding

    The list is a useless muddled mess whose singular purpose is to
    maintain and cultivate a specter of danger hiding in the darkness ready
    to prey on children with it’s soulless evil heart. It is a feel good measure
    voted for people who are manipulated and scared out of their minds at the boggy
    man out to get them…Be that a terrorist, crazy shooter in Joker makeup or of
    course, the worst of them ALL – SEX OFFENDERS!

    Just as the government’s theory of bigger is better, the list, continues
    to grow and therefore to become LESS EFFECTIVE, as it is watered down
    with people who should NOT be on it. It has become an out of control monster
    that serves no productive purpose and only confuses those who check it and those
    on it.
    Of course, that doesn’t even take into account those who misuse it…either
    to annoy and harass, profit from extortion, or even murder by mentally unstable
    zealots either doing "god’s will" or simply taking the "law" into their own
    hands! Either way, they have simply to check for photos and address conveniently
    post right there online at their finger tips!

    Perhaps the idea started with some misguided good intentions BUT the way that it
    is implemented is a disaster. It doesn’t prevent any crime or keep any child
    safer. It only ends up diverting attention to real problems and destroying lives
    of those placed indiscriminately on it. Since the vast majority of children
    molested or harmed are done so by someone they already know, if parents
    really want to keep them safe they had best stop wasting time looking at
    useless list online
    and keep an eye on those closest to them.

    It is time to stop the madness and make some major reforms to this travesty
    of justice.
