Shift scrutiny to Pierce County’s worst sex offenders

‘Sex offender” is a scary label. But it shouldn’t scare us into stupidity.

Roughly 2,400 convicted sex offenders officially live in Pierce County. By law, they must report their addresses to law enforcement, which maintains a public database of their whereabouts, and officers must theoretically pay a visit to each one of them at least once a year. Full Article

Just another article by a well meaning ignoramus reporter. I really take offense at people who are so stupid as to advocate treatment for a nonexistent illness. I take equal offense at those who consider me dangerous; I never laid a hand on anyone and think scared people are the epitome of ignorance that will hopefully some day wake up to the fact that their beliefs are manufactured and they are being manipulated by equally ignorant people with an agenda.

Good job, Pierce County in the state of Washington. People there are thinking and not reacting from fear. Instead of seeing all registered citizens as the same, they are starting to distinguish between and among those who pose a current danger and those who do not. Because they can make this distinction, they understand that government resources can be used more wisely and efficiently. We can only hope that California will soon learn this lesson and create a tiered registry.
