This is a sort of catch-22. The guy can’t get a job or housing due to his registration status but if he does get temporary housing he is liable to report it and also report it when he looses housing…God forbid if he is also mentally ill and forgets stuff or delirious due to getting beat up on the streets and lacks understanding enough to know he is suppose to report. Question: How does one NOT violate in some way considering the details? To violate is more likely than the ability to comply. Hitler would be proud…Nazi law…If you are… Read more »

And to add to your point, just how many lawyers and courts does it seem to take to just interpret these laws? Imagine if our founding fathers had just required that all laws be limited in length and clear to understand by the average citizen.

This shows how registration is not an extention of parole or probation or any other corrective program. It undoes any correction or reintegration that the original punishment may have done or intended to do. It’s effect is to eliminate people from society, rather than readjust to it, plain and simple, and dishonest.

Very well stated. We should define the effects as being counter to the surface purpose is a good point to hammer on. Truth rarely takes much effort or length in words to bring to light but lies and wrongful ways takes a lot of plumbing, words and effort.

The registry is pure bloodlust. It has never been any different. It is the embodiment of the notion that victims are incapable of finding peace without indefinitely punishing the abuser. “But what about the victim?” Is always the response when rational voices are heard. There’s this unspoken idea that if we aren’t retaliating against the abuser, we are somehow diminishing the suffering of the victim. An idea heavily exploited by opportunistic politicians eager for an easy win. Humans being what they are, it’s too easy to take advantage of group think and sheep mentality. Something must change in the populace.… Read more »

“The court says the law is intended to protect communities by tracking sex offenders’ whereabouts as closely as reasonable practicable.”
And how does that protect the community? Oh right, ask a silly question and get a silly answer.
Never mind.

they don’t care who gets screwed , that’s why they make stupid laws to fight over , rather than just being fair , face it we are going to be punished for just living , under fake laws passed and defended buy fake humans , and while we are being put in prisons and being put to death , they will raise glass’s and say they did the best the could to save humanity from the monsters that our great laws created , the shrinks will say that they tried to help but the sex offenders lack of trust in… Read more »
