I am at a loss as to why; with all of the readily available empirical evidence that proves people (including registrants) tend to not make a habit of repeating crimes that land them on the registry or in prison seem to be ignored by those that could make a difference and restore sanity to this society.
If only they would acknowledge the truth and act on it, the lives of those already murdered would have some real meaning, and the lives and dignity of many could be restored. The burden on this society would be lifted and that $/burden could actually go towards something that is a real social issue; such as hunger and homelessness. Instead, those that this falls to seemingly prefer to destroy the lives of families and destroy the childhood of the children of registrants, all in the name of their misguided phantom beliefs that are more founded on the hype of a few and not on the facts gathered by years of research and records.
It seems like this author really did his homework. This is well written and includes citations. All of his conclusions are drawn from state and federal information sources and it is quite an eye opener, especially the research showing that a cop is more likely to commit a sex related crime than a registrant, and that those already on the registry (as the facts show) have an infinitesimal re offense rate. His research shows that the re-offenses rate is 5/10,000 of one percent per year for people on the registry.
I do not know if all this is true, but I intend to do some checking for myself when time and desire permit.

a. Something apparently seen, heard, or sensed, but having no physical reality;
a ghost or an apparition.
b. Something elusive or delusive.
2. An image that appears only in the mind; an illusion.
3. Something dreaded or despised.

This is good, but you need to show that the public registry has no affect or increases the reoffence rate of registrants. Otherwise, it will be assumed that notification is what is keeping the offense rate Low.

With this new information, we will be sure to add police officers to the list of those who actually sexually assault children. Perhaps all police officers should be on a list of people to monitor due to the “high” rate of becoming a sex offender.

Some should were cameras, GPS and listening devices on and off duty.

…do it if it just saves one child.

It might seem unreasonable to prohibit police officers from entering a park, but let’s remember: it’s not punishment, just regulation and if we can save just one child, it is worth it.

Notification is a sham deceptive two face phony public policy that is punitive and discriminatory………..If…if this
notification was “assumed” to work…it would be applied to
the higher dangerous crime repeaters like robbers…dui…
assaults..thieves …domestic abuse…drug sellers…etc..etc…
two face phony’s won’t apply notification to higher repeat crime noted that are more dangerous to the public than ex sexo. It doesn’t work and they know it doesn’t work.

Will B. is a friend of mine from my past involvement with the Sex Offender Solutions and Education Network, and he is an excellent resource for much of the information regarding sex offender issues in the country. Will is available to any legal professional with his considerable resources that help the cause.

Just to add to the posts; when police officers actually do get caught their bail is lower, their time in jail is shorter and their sentences are not as severe as “John Q. Public.” Not sure why that is, but my guess is something like a good ole boys network. I am not so far off the track to say that the majority, yes, MAJORITY, of police sex offenses go unreported because they have the power to threaten and intimidate their victims, which they do with regularity. If one has a daughter of driving age, she is far more likely to be molested during a traffic stop by a policeman than by a coach, teacher, clergy or stranger. The information is out there and we can make sure it is really out into the public’s hands.

When I google sex offender re-offense rates, I get a whole list of studies that confirm what this article says. These are mostly not self proclaimed registrant advocacy groups, but government agencies like the justice department and criminology journals. So what’s up. It’s not just the opinion of the so called ultra liberal bleeding hearts. I found a report from the CATO institute that says notification laws are even counter productive, tending to make the re-offense rate of registrants higher by about 1.5%. So, if this is true, without public notification, the rates would be even lower. There needs to be a better more multidisciplinary approach to protecting children, evidence based, attacking the problem with a scalpel instead of a sledge hammer for lack of a more original metaphor. As I see it the real agenda of these related notification and restriction laws is to protect power (corporate and governmental) and shield the powerful from scrutiny, not make people’s lives happier, more productive or safer. Why else would lawmakers ignore the evidence?

Also, when I search for information, I don’t get all those “locate a sex offender in your neighborhood” results on the first page. Thank you, Janice, Google and those who opposed the extortion sites.

Yes, so true. There was a police officer recently arrested. He was working at the airport. He raped an innocent woman. Then, some years back a Detective raped a woman and kidnapped her. Then, most recently, an LA Sheriffs Deputy was arrested and charged with raping a citizen. So, lets see?

Oh, then the Mayor of San Diego was arrested or fired for sexual harassment (although, San Diego was known for some of the most stringent sex offender laws?

Do a Google search of “police officers accused of sex crimes”. There is a whole lot of them!


This is just the information that needs to be given to the public. Kinda scary that Police officers are more likely to offend than registered citizens. There is so much bogus information out there that the public is confused and needs help understanding the truth. Educate not Hate !

It all comes back to equal protection under the law. When the government makes laws that tell potential victims that they should be afraid of the guy next door on a list, and it ignores the greater risks posed by those who you are supposed to trust, whose interest is served? Not the public’s, the victims, not those who are blacklisted with their families and friends. If notification and punishment are going to be applied, then, according to the Constitution, all notifications and punishments shall be applied equally. There is no maybes or buts here.
