Three words- A Step Back.

Well, I think legislators need to start looking at the big picture. I would imagine most of the low risk offenders have moved on with their lives, are working and started families. As such, it’s very obvious and common sense tells you that when people are working and being productive members of society, re offense rates are almost non existent. So, maybe the state should rather allow people to be removed from the website after 10-20 years, rather than punish them for being law abiding citizens? Let’s reward them rather than make it more difficult to be productive? I’ve always
Believed the US was the land of opportunities. It’s now time for people to take another approach to registered citizens. People deserve 2nd chances and one size doesn’t fit all!

At what point do this kind of stuff, becomes criminal harassment by the government?

Yet another “solution” to a nonexistent “problem”.

Its about time for a change. The current laws do nothing to improve lives. In fact more children have had their lives destroyed by this unfair registry. The media distorts the truth to suit their selfish needs. Shame on them and lawmakers that have not cared enough to educate themselves and let this go on. One size does not fit all. Shame on John Walsh for not stepping in.

Everyone on this site and other stakeholders are the teachers and we all employed in a teaching circle.

I’ve never heard a more beautiful expression of what this organization can be – or rather, is. I have been a little depressed lately, OK, to tell the truth, much depressed, but now not so much. I caught glimpse of it un-looked for, everyone has inherent value.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
