    “In most people’s minds, when they think of sex offenders, they think of a person in the bushes or a stranger preying on children. Clearly, that’s a sex offender too, but that’s only 3 to 5 percent of the sex offender population,”.
    It is immoral and hopefully someday found unconstitutional for restrictions to be placed on the 95% for the repeat crimes of the 5%. Leave the 95% alone, because they will never re-offend. For the 5% use a program that accually has promise of working. Circles of Support and Accountability may be one such program. In two Canadian studies and one from Vermont, recidivism was shown to be drastically reduced, somewhere around 70% in the COSA programs. There is no credible report that residency restrictions do anything but make the problem worse. And how about studying the 95% and learning from those who have succeeded? There is always focus on the small portion who re-offend and then assuming the rest are the same. That is only 1/20th of the story.
