MD: Ruling could scrub quarter of sex offender registry

One-fourth of the names on Maryland’s sex offender registry could be removed after the state’s top court expanded Monday on an earlier ruling that adding offenders from before the list was created violated the state constitution. The Court of Appeals declared last year that the state could not require the registration of people who committed their crimes before October 1995, when the database was established. State officials removed the one name in question in that case but maintained that federal law required them to keep older cases in the database. Full Article

Hmmm….. “Lisae C. Jordan, the executive director of the Maryland Coalition Against Sexual Assault, said the ruling means Maryland will now need to look at other ways to track dangerous offenders.” I have to wonder just how many of these people are truly “dangerous”. If anyone ever bothered to check the facts they would have to conclude that the probability of a dangerous “offender” being released in this group is indeed very small, and more than likely non existent. “Lisae C.

The National Center For Missing And Exploited Children is John Walsh’s “victims rights group. Is anyone aware of the fact that Opra Winfrey has her very own victims rights group too? It’s a good way to get rich if you don’t care about honesty and scruples. I think CA-RSOL should start a “victims rights group”; the victims being us registrants, and use the $ to expand the fight for freedom from injustice and tyranny.

Good for Maryland, at least some might get off the registry.
