I think that the DA, et al, are afraid that letting this man go on with his life might set a precedent and they would lose more of their cash cows. Consider all the jobs generated by these “patients.” And the legal system must keep up the fallacy that they are protecting society from the “predators.”

Hi margaret moon:

I get the nagging feeling the DA’s efforts to deny this man his liberty, albeit limited as a registrant, is based more on prejudice and self will than concern for public safety. I think the public safety thing is just an angle to gain support and justification to deny this man his rights and freedom.

I would love the media to justify their sudden use of “convicted sex offender” in recent months by showing me an “unconvicted” sex offender.

I swear the hyperbole to keep the public in a panic is so over the top.

Hi JB:

The press is notoriously one sided; basically the mouthpiece for those wishing to control public opinion and people, usually for personal gain, and it seems the only ones that notice are those negatively impacted by their one sided half truths and outright lies.

‘If you think there is freedom of the press in the United States, I tell you there is no freedom of the press… They come out with the cheap shot. The press should be ashamed of itself. They should come to both sides of the issue and hear both sides and let the American people make up their minds’ – Bill Moyers

Why is that when it comes to registered citizens society won’t listen to its experts? In this case, the experts have determined that the registered citizen is ready to reintegrate into society. In addition, psychological studies have determined that the rate of re-offense for a rapist after age 60 is almost nil. It’s time to make decisions based upon facts, not fear!

They keep wasting taxpayer funds on a political agenda that puts it in direct conflict to human rights …..political prisoner…as we are in this registry.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
