CT: Sex Offender Registry Review A Tricky Task [Editorial]

Connecticut’s sex offender registry was created in 1998 to protect the public. Does it work?

A committee of the Connecticut Sentencing Commission hopes to answer that question in the next 30 months as it reviews the state’s laws and policies relating to sex offenders. “This is not an easy topic,” said committee co-Chairman Robert Farr, former chairman of the Connecticut Board of Pardons and Paroles.

The only thing tricky about it is to figure out a way to perpetuate the lying, hyperbole and fear mongering.

Actually, fear sells itself. Especially if it’s about something statistically insignificant happening to children. “All it takes is a second!” “It could happen to your child, too!”

The reason it’s “tricky” is because the law is based upon both an unconstitutional violation of rights as well as goes against demonstrobably low recidivism rates in general. The “tricky” part is trying to placate the sheeple by convincing the registry is harshly punishing the registered citizen without making it look like they are harshly punishing the registered citizen. Cain’t be done, Agnes.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
