NY: Local group pushes for hard-copy sex offender registry

When Buffalo’s Common Council meeting is called to order Tuesday afternoon, a local group of parents and community leaders will be calling on the city to be more proactive about its sex offenders.

“A lot of people are not computer savvy. We have a lot of foreigners in our city, who may not be able to read and write correct English. We need the registration list to be sent out. The disconnect is that they’re not providing this to us,” he said. Full Article

    Great idea!

    Oh really?!?

    I have a better idea:

    Send out the names, badge numbers, phone numbers (personal and work), shifts, and patrol patterns of every police officer in Buffalo New York.

    Want a hard copy registry? Go back to having to setup an appointment at the police station to look at the list. Though do not under any circumstances allow photography, copying, or video of the list to be removed from the police station. Also only show people the highest risk registrants in their direct neighborhood and then send out notification in the mail to the registrants that their neighbor at address (wherever the neighbor lives) has looked at their registry entry. Include in the notification the name (first and last) and photo of the neighbor. This way if anyone decides to become a vigilante both the registrant and law enforcement will have a good lead.

    How about another option:

    Prove in court the sex offender registration is punishment and thus unconstitutional for every so called sex offense in every state and federally. Then put every available resource into doing whatever possible to make people don’t go down the path that leads to committing sex offenses in the first place. If it is not known how people arrive at committing sex offenses (over the course of potentially many years or decades of lead up) it is time to find out. Prevention of taking the wrong fork in the road will create less offenders, less victims, and less need for sex crime prosecutions and defenses.

      Oh wow…

      In the contextual environment that our country is in with the police department, why not have the ability to make a the cops’ numbers and house available for all to see? Yes, it’s extreme, but someone already had done this – make a registry for those people who are in charge of the registry. He won b/c first amendment protection.

      It’s just simply showing where all your neighborhood peace officers are at so that you know you’re safe in that neighborhood. Although I am a registrant, I pay taxes. Those officers are my employees. Don’t I have a right to know about my employees?

      What I’m emphasizing is an extreme idea. Imagine this being played out in, say, Baltimore, Md? How about in Chicago? The atmosphere between peace officers and the community is volatile.

      If they say it’s not a good idea for peace officers due to vigilantism, then explain why it’s okay for Frank, a registrant?

    They wanted printed, hard copy versions of the Registry mailed out to everyone? Who do they hate more – registered citizens or trees??

    So they want printed, hard copy versions of the Registry mailed out to everyone….. Who do they hate more – registered citizens or trees?

    Teach your foreigners to read and write English, how to use a computer and your children about the right and wrong about grownup behavior !!!!!!!!!!!!! That’s my opinion.

  6. Q

    Don’t think it’s going to happen. Who is going to pay for the paper and ink? They should just tell them to print their own hard copy if they want one so bad.

  7. j

    They ought to be pushing for hard copies of the constitution to be included so they can have a dose of truth along with the rhetoric that has been the foundation of these draconian laws.

    However well intentioned, the sacrosanct document will probably line bird cages given the average intelligence of the people involved on either side of the flood of distortions and propaganda that goes along with notification laws.
