Sexual Offender Residence Restrictions

ATSA supports evidence-based public policy and practice. Research consistently shows that residence restrictions do not reduce sexual reoffending or increas community safety. In fact, these laws often create more problems than they solve, including homelessness, transience, and clustering of disproportionate numbers of offenders in areas outside of restricted zones.

This is a great report, now we just need the government to do one that says something similar about registration in general!

The United States? I thought we were in Germany and we were all Jewish people, almost the same persecution except they were killed!

It is accordingly insufficient to add unreasonable punishment that would increase criminality as a form of rehabilitation unless the true motives of the lawmakers are secretly attempting to continue wreaking havoc in criminals who,by prejudiced, do not approve of their crime. Upon this precipice being a witness to this injustice should provoke great feelings of disgust unless also your in cooperation with the same. Condemning prejudices as lawmakers are hoping you are. Sadly, it will take sheer numbers for this perspective to change as it should have before these unconstitutional bills were passed in ignorance to the nature of each crime individually. It’sy challenge to you to get the facts before a family member of yours is the next victim of these primitive tools measured against people who have made poor choices and suffer consequences of great severity that were instilled as a measure aimed at protection but do anything but protect !
