MD: Officials removing names from sex offender registry

BALTIMORE —The list of sex offenders on Maryland’s sex offender registry is shrinking because of a Maryland Court of Appeals ruling in June.

The ruling said corrections officials are legally required to remove the names of offenders who committed their crimes before 1995, when the state registry was created. The court ruled that Maryland can’t make those offenders register after the fact. Full Article

The same thing should happen here in California. Hat’s off to the Maryland Court of Appeals. 1,400 seems like a small number, but there are only 8.000 registrants in that state.

I think the man is handicapped by ignorance and unreasoning prejudice, and probably does in fact feel a little threat to his out of joint security instinct. Fact’s are fact’s; and his view doesn’t come close to lining up with the fact’s. I also suspect he has lost some face. If you read the comments on the article you’ll see a nasty Florida type of ignorance based view by allot of the people in the discussion thread.

I just went to the discussion thread and all my comments have been removed. This is censorship. This is not free speech. I posted an edited version of my post here and asked a couple of people to provide citations to validate their statements. We’ll see if my comments reappear any time soon.

This is hopefully going to start a trend throughout the Nation.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
