Sex-offender laws are ineffective and unfair, critics say

____ ____, 62, is a father, small-business owner and avid surfer. He’s also one of 105,000 people in California — and 760,000 nationally — listed as a sex offender. In accordance with federal law, his name, photograph and home address appear in a public, online offender registry. In 1979, ____, then 27, was convicted of lewd and lascivious acts with a minor under the age of 14.

“I thought I could do whatever I wanted,” ____ says. “Add on some alcohol, and I was a real asshole.”

Today, ____ considers himself a reformed man. He says he hasn’t had a drink in 30 years, is a Taoist and advocate for restorative justice — encouraging violent people to make amends for their actions. But, he says, “It seems that I can never be forgiven.” Full Article

    Finally, a portrayal of Frank that doesn’t make him look like a convict. I mean the photo itself, but also the body of the article was very humanely done.

      Hi Tim:

      This is indeed a professionally written article, “for once.” It seems to me this country has become a shadow of it’s former self. All these detractors; the ones that want us crucified, should be asked to prove their stance is valid by these reporters. I know beyond a shadow of doubt that their stance can’t be proven valid because it’s a lie, and as the article points out none of this is based on any kind of solid evidence; empirical or otherwise.

      ps; $$$ new job going well. if merger with other company happens I’ll be managing the painting division. $$$

        Good luck. It’s what you deserve after all the suffering. I’d say, we’ve done our sentence — twice.

        • Q

          Thanks Tim. I agree we’ve done our sentence twice, and you can add some persecution in there and then some too. I think I;ll be alright, that is unless I’m “found out.”

    Kudos go to Aljazeera publication and the journalist Puck Lo.
    I agree with Tim, finally the author tells a well balanced story of Frank Lindsey, a man who happens to be one of the thousands who live life on the registry.
    My Heart is bursting with gratitude to Frank for exposing himself to the world on behalf of thousands of citizens.
