Fresno State ASI: Sex offender resolution rejected

Fresno State’s Associated Students, Inc. senate rejected a resolution Wednesday that aimed to promote the disclosure of the identities of registered sex offenders on campus.

“I just do not see the necessity of this resolution as it pertains to the college campus,” said Daniel Ward, senator-at-large for academic affairs. “We do not have the authority to change a law. The intention is in the right place. But the fact of the matter is, we’re not going to be able to do any legal processing of this. It is not our place for it.”

Since the passage of California’s Megan’s Law in 2004, the public has been able to view information on sex offenders required to register with local law enforcement.  The law allows a person to use information from the website only to protect a “person at risk.” Full Article

From the article:

“If a criminal is required to register as a sex offender, they’re required to register because there’s a need-to-know basis,” he said. “There’s a need for closer monitoring of these kinds of people, especially considering the rate of re-offense.”

We sex offenders know that there could be nothing more false and further from the truth than the statement above. There may be a need to monitor a person who is actively on probation (but the mere fact that they are on probation means they are already being monitored).

The term used “these kinds of people” is useless as the only thing sex offenders have in common is that they are labeled “sex offenders” by the legal system and nothing else.

The range of crimes can range from a sexual assault to simply being seen urinating in public. Quite a range if you ask me or anyone else with any common sense at all!

So let’s see…we lump all those varied and diverse people together and just label them all “sex offenders” and treat the person who raped someone the same a the guy who needed to take a piss. Sure that will make everyone sleep better at night.

Again, the article points out the lack of critical thinking being used by way too many.

“…especially considering the rate of re-offense.”

Which is only 1.9% according to CDCR.
