Is It Time to Revisit Sex Offender Supervision for Life?

In the mid-1990s, Americans were shocked by several high-profile child victim sex offenses. In New Jersey, the abduction, rape and murder of seven-year-old Megan Kanka by a paroled sex offender who lived across the street horrified the state and spurred action by elected officials and state agencies.

    This well written article includes a statement worth repeating: “Megan’s Law provide a false sense of security”. When will the public wake up and realize that if they truly want to prevent the sexual assault of children, they should focus upon those who already know their children — family members, teachers, coaches and clergy — who commit more than 90 percent of those assaults according to the CA Sex Offender Management Board? By comparison, the percentage of those on the registry who have sexually assaulted a child is low and the rate at which they re-offend is very low according to Dr. Karl Hanson, the preeminent expert on this important topic.

      Hi Janice;

      This is indeed a well written article, and the links are a plus. I think as long as we have people with a public platform (The Runners come to mind) making baseless statements that are unfounded and proven to be myth people will continue to be misled.

      The statements below remind me that things were done backwards; empirical studies should have been done before any law was passed, and this didn’t, and still doesn’t happen.

      “in less than four months (warp speed for legislative processes), a package of bills was drafted, passed and signed into law.”

      “With the exception of DNA testing, none of these provisions had any empirical evidence to support their effectiveness as public policy. This was, however, no deterrent to the rapid and widespread adoption of similar legislation by states, with the active encouragement of the federal government.”

      It’s really frightening and disturbing that the Federal Government encouraged this knee jerk legislation. I think the Federal Government needs to be educated and encourage the undoing of the culture of misplaced fear they actively encouraged. It’s through people like you that light is shed on the folly these people embrace, twist and use for their advantage, at the expense of freedom and the principals we are told are for the benefit of everyone.
