When someone turns 18 the government should mail them “The Law” manual …..

Make it sixteen or whenever someone gets their driver’s license. Oh and not just state law, but federal, and local ordinances too. Plus it can’t just be the criminal or civil codes/statutes but the entire legal manual. Yes this includes the United States constitution and state constitution (screw it, provide all 50 state constitution’s).

Why can’t we start a petition, gathering signatures to see how many people would like to have some sex offenses removed from the registry that are clearly not violent or contact offenses. Since California has lifefetime registration, more people get added all the time, and that is overwhelming for anyone and counterproductive to fight sex crimes. I am sure, the majority of smart people would have to welcome this since it lets LE focus more on the true threats.

Hello someone who Cares, I just ran across this article and adds to the Ramifications of sex offenses in various states please read this article it is somewhat bizarre yet I feel it compliments & adds to what You are already saying: http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/jurisprudence/2014/08/several_states_ban_people_in_the_sex_offender_registry_from_a_bizarre_list.html?wpisrc=burger_bar
