Good…. It’s people like this that the registry was intended for. I wouldn’t want him next to me either. Don’t forget that their are still the REAL DEALS who real mess it up for all

J., it seems you have no faith in the ability of someone to be rehabilitated, even after 10 years of therapy and 7 experts declaring he could be back in the community with

Quote: “All seven experts who testified found that Shazier was still mentally ill, but could safely live in the community with proper support”.

Are you an RC? If so, it would seem hypocritical for you to expect better treatment by society.

Would you agree to the inconsistency of your emotions?

No matter who you are, I recommend less trolling, and more support for a better way to deal with RCs.

Yes I am an RC and yes I believe in the fact that once your sentence is over that should be it and even in this case. So ultimately I agree with you Roger… I just feel this individual has a very very sick track record compared to the majority of rc’s. Again though, yes, if he’s been released he deserves the same chance as anyone but he wasn’t labeled a predator for nothing. I also know not all predators should have that lable but this man is on his 3rd chance after committing some absolutely heinus crimes. I hope he does well and truly wish him and his family the best. Hopefully he is rehabilitated but God help us all for the ones who aren’t.

IMO, anyone having sexual contact with a minor who is not of legal age of consent is forcibly assaulting them. Other than “molesting teenage boys, in which he used alcohol and then forcibly assaulted them,” what else is there?

Statutory offenses, indecent exposure,public urination, CP. Need I go on? Nice try.

J., by saying “I wouldn’t want him next to me either”, you may as well say the same thing most Californians say about you, I, and other RCs: that they are uncomfortable around us because deep down they are sure we will re-offend.

Most anti-RC laws are made with the tiny number of “very very sick”–as you say—in mind. I heard this repeatedly while in the offices of California legislators.

But they are not wandering the streets! The laws are so strict these days that this type of sex offender isn’t put on the streets until he has been thoroughly evaluated at the end of his prison sentence. If he is considered a danger, he must go through years of therapy and treatment. Only a handful are ever released, and they always receive a hurricane of hysteria–which you are echoing. The majority are locked up FOR THE REST OF THEIR LIVES in a California Medical Facility.

In Shazier’s case, he was treated. As it says, “The safety of the program is proven by the fact that no sexually violent predator on community release has assaulted another person, he said.”

So, either you believe rehabilitation is possible for most of us or you don’t. If not, you imply that you believe the experts who declared Shazier’s rehabilitation are lying.

The public judges us as inhuman monsters. Let’s not judge each other using an emotion-driven hierarchy.

Thank you Roger and I agree with you. I mis spoke. Sometimes I read these horrible crimes and it makes me sick but you are right and is right in line with the Constitution. I do fully believe one can be rehabilitated . So we are agreeence. I truly admit I misspoke.

If his last conviction was after Chelsea’s law he probably would have received life in a traditional prison and never gotten out no matter how much he was rehabilitated.

That is terrible!

I agree totally with Roger! Although this man did commit heinous crimes but does he deserve his pictures plastered on billboards all over town? If experts say that he can now live on the outside, shouldn’t he have that chance? It is a dilemma! MY God, help everyone heal!

Yes, I agree with you mom.

Very true, but sadly, we’re all guilty by association in the eyes of the public and especially the police. They depend upon and encourage the public being afraid of us for their job security. Kids are always in “harms way” regardless according to them.

more mob rules society…..

It always seems that when we start making headway, stories like this start popping up….this happens around the month of October too. I guess they know when to kill the moment or to start putting fear back into the public.

event is always it’s for the poor little defenseless chillins…por little joey and Samantha bless their little hearts… tired of seeing people exploit kids and the primal instincts of adults to protect them…the uneducated ignorant fall for this crap hook line and sinker and the politicians and media know that and use it every chance they get….

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
