This is not new news. Every few years this fact is pointed out by and individual or group and nothing is ever done about it. Then it is forgotten about for a few years until someone else comes up with the same conclusion. It’s common sense that this would be the case with “experts” hired by groups or the courts. If a group that favors something (such as the ever popular and seemingly endless laws affecting people on the registry) and hires an “expert” you can bet the study will be biased in favor of the person or group paying for the study and will not have considered all of the facts. These so called “experts do much harm. Just ask any cop or citizen about people on the registry and you will hear an endless stream of misinformation,misconceptions and outright lies based on these biased studies by some “expert.” It’s sickening.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
