Oh; sure… divert attention away from the total failure that is the sex offender registry by enacting yet another law. Even though I think this one could benefit the citizens forced to register as a sex offenders, it won’t work until all the cities and towns agree to work together. I hope this bill passes for the sake of all the registrants forced to live as homeless people because the government refuses to acknowledge the truth; that the registry doesn’t work in any way, shape or form. Good laws do not harm anyone.

Kind of misleading headlines. I think this is showing the pendulum is swinging, slow but swinging.

I say let them keep adding to the house of cards that’s already twisting in the wind. When something is built upon the foundation of a LIE, it’s only a matter of time..

It is unfortunate that the State of Wisconsin plans to do what the CA Supreme Court and Sex Offender Management Board have determined don’t work — adopt residency restrictions. It is ironic that Wisconsin believes this will help to solve the problem of homeless registered citizens. In direct contrast, the number of homeless registered citizens more than doubled in California after Jessica’s Law was passed.

Does anyone know, generally speaking, if one must follow a state’s residency restrictions if they no longer live in that state but are forced to continue registering?

While the hundreds of local laws in WI are impossible to follow WI should just ban all residency and presence restrictions at a state level vs. enacting their own.

Still I believe the intent is more to ‘help’ registered citizens than to hurt. A little step forward.

Dumb dum wisconsin …backwards decisions only makes for costly and dangerous results in the scheme …. look at those guys on trial in that orange county serial crime…the problem was they were homeless ……had california helped as you wisconsin will need to do now…is give each registered one thousand dollars per month for housing costs and the higher the tier the higher dollar figures to say $1500.– per month….housing registered citizens and opportunity of job is best for all and in the best public interest.

“Once they are off the grid, then you really have something to be afraid of. This is a workable solution,” Rep. Kleefish said.

This is nothing but fear propaganda! Megan’s Law is not a common sense approach to protecting society, much less a credible solution or a viable strategy for safeguarding children – In any capacity.

These Republicans are just securing their place in history right along side the Nazis for pushing this nonsense. Deception and manipulation.. using fear of something happening to their children for political gain. They have zero shame.

I always knew the word conservative is among many synonyms for the word hate. But also be reminded that this infectious opportunism knows no boundary based on political ideology or party. The underlying temptation for those in power is this low hanging fruit that fuels ratings; which we see as a chance to play on ignorance and turn it into fear, hate and votes. But these folks ought to lend credence to one of the oldest and most fabled stories in history that warns about low hanging fruit, temptation and the downrange and disastrous consequences of such opportunism.
