Dear Abby: Register for sex offenders covers a gamut of offenses

DEAR ABBY: As a licensed psychotherapist who has worked with both victims and perpetrators of sexual abuse over the past 25 years, I would like to respond to “Stunned in the City” (Jan. 22), who found her co-worker’s name on a website for registered sex offenders. Full Article

  1. Q

    This is a good thing this subject was touched upon in Dear Abbey. She is a syndicated columnist with a readership that numbers in the millions. This is some really good and positive exposure; and it’s truthful exposure too!

    Unfortunately, while some good information, “Abby” is wrong on one point. People do NOT consider the registry a starting point, it is considered by most to be the absolute final say on whether someone is a danger to society or not. And what is not considered is that sometimes the registry contains intentionally false information, such as the page showing my information. Secondly, I wonder how many news affiliates conveniently chose not to include yesterday’s column.

      Every day, take one step to bring enlightenment, to shed light in a dark place, to educate, inform and perhaps encourage compassion. Abby is printed in many papers, daily, sometimes running from a submission to editors – of weeks earlier. There is no way to know which – if any – affiliates declined to print the article and comments. It appears many, many affiliates elected to do so.

        Yeah, that was my guess. Syndicated columns are sometimes optional for papers to include, and even if they “accidentally” omit the column, they simply print an apology the next day. But for for every paper that did carry it, and some of the other enlightening articles lately, I applaud them.
