Too Many Restrictions on Sex Offenders, or Too Few?

Wow…this sounds like Orange County…except they don’t want us talking to each other here.

Excellent ..excellent article in there too assistant Professor
Jennings “Laws from baseless Assumptions “…at least the
NYTimes is putting the issue out there…Excellent.

In their comment section a reader points out what I’ve said
in a different article here before and that is the next so called
“sex” crime will be from some person NOT on a registry list…

THAT is the real problem.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
