Two decades later, has Megan’s Law delivered? (Opinion)

It’s been 20 years since New Jersey’s Legislature passed Megan’s Law. The two decades since have been filled with legal challenges and disappointment it didn’t accomplish what many thought it would. It’s what happens when politics and emotion team to shortcut the legislative process. Full Opinion Piece

    It has delivered votes, funding, fear mongering, vigilantism, division, hate mongering, emotional abuse to children and families of registrants, more broken homes than you might imagine, societal disenfranchisement, and a host of other subterfuge and advantages for political opportunists including a nearly death blow to constitutional protections.

    Sadly as to the actual intention, it has only delivered the illusion of safety.

    Lady Liberty has a tear running down her cheek.

    Well, the nature of the problem continues to be mis-stated. Here is a good example: you have a mentally deranged person attacking another person with violence. (And after the fact, politicians who try to harvest votes by decrying “sex”.)
    Violence is the problem, violence perpetrated by a guy who was mentally askew.

    When we restate the problem this way, then we can solve it: there are well known protocols for screening the population for mentally ill people. When you go to reception in a California prison, you are screened by psychologists, looking for signs of mental problems. Further analysis and treatment can then be provided. That should eliminate or reduce any tendency to violence.
    While incarcerated I encountered some people I thought were potentially very violent; those are the ones to worry about and warn about. Guys whose main interest was sex tried to make themselves as agreeable as possible—–for obvious reasons.

    polotcians are no more than telavagelist after your money but tell you it is to save your soul, Jesus paid that price for you, making all these harsher laws is not the answer, the answer is to tell your kids don’t talk to strangers and don’t go with them and yell weirdo over and over again because in nature we are supposed to talk to one another an such, and instead of prison or jail what about help so if they are a ped. they have help not to do it again, but by not letting them get a job or housing any crimminal would commit a crime again to eat or sleep, what happened to paying you debt to society? If you can’t pay your debt and show your not a danger why would anyone care and i don’t mean to harm another person i mean there own life or stealing to live or turn to drugs and alcohal, “LET HE WITHOUT SIN CAST THE FIRST STONE” love your neibor as you love your self.
