NV: Bill would repeal Adam Walsh sex-offender act

After years of languishing in Nevada courts, legislators are reconsidering sex-offender laws affecting juveniles and the way criminals are ranked and registered.

State Sen. Richard “Tick” Segerblom, D-Las Vegas, and Assemblywoman Michele Fiore, R-Las Vegas, introduced Senate Bill 99 in February to repeal the state’s version of the federal Adam Walsh Act. Critics have said the law disenfranchises juveniles who could be reformed, and many think the way the law categorizes offenders — based on the crimes committed rather than risk of re-offending — might not really serve the public interest.

    Good for Nevada.
    SB 99 addresses some of what opponents point to as the Walsh Act’s problems. The current draft of the bill gives offenders a way to appeal tier designations and lifetime monitoring after 15 years”

    All of the wrangling and swaying back and forth of these laws, and the registrant is still the whipping boy all the way through. This is like Cool Hand Luke where he has to move mountains of dirt back and forth between two menacing and cruel guards.

    These laws have been sold as no safe haven for registrants, and even as the constitutionality of it is determine, the punishment just keeps going on in an arbitrary and sadistic manner – in front of hundreds of millions. What American would be proud of this distortion of human rights?

    It can only be shameful at best for politicians to use hate disguised as safety to further their career aspirations on the backs of registrants and their families.

    j,

    The public’s perception of registered citizens is that we’re not human and have no rights, so the public feasts on the lies from their “trusted” politicians and have their whipping boys (and girls) as well as a group to blame all the ills of the world on.
    Progress is slow, change is slower, sort of like a snail riding on a turtle’s back.
