I couldn’t get through this one w/o getting a lil choked up.
I’ll never understand how anyone could justify the registry let alone a life sentence on it.
I wasn’t out of high school long when my life was taken away. The amount of trouble I was in over a mistake was news to me and terrifying every step of the way. The nightmare never ends. For what? At the time there wasn’t much info about the Registry but I hope today the school system does more to educate those walking out into the world of adults.
“The possibility of freedom should be incentive enough to obey the rules”.
We in CA have no incentive to follow the rules of an unjust system.

“In fact, the list of restrictions for offenders can be complex, Wright said. She keeps large legal volumes that she constantly refers to in order to be certain about various situations.
>>The county’s expert cannot keep things straight without repeatedly consulting “large legal volumes,” and yet they expect us to toe the line exactly.

““’If I’m what’s between a child and an offender, I’m willing to do the best I can,” she said. “And there are 200 people in this building to help me.’
“Wright said one reason she goes to see the offenders, even when they aren’t at home, is to let them know they’re being watched. That keeps them on their p’s and q’s.
“She said she went by one offender’s home and saw him mowing the grass. Later, she called him and said, ‘I see you mowed the yard.’ That let him know he had better keep his nose clean.”
>>This lady has a way higher view of herself and her influence than she probably actually has. If she told me she saw I’d mowed the yard, I’d probably say, “yeah, it was getting long.”

“The possibility of freedom should be incentive enough to obey the rules.”
>>Well at least they admit we’re not actually free, despite having completed all court requirements.

I think this article was trying to help ‘soften’ the image of RCs, but all I see is a miserably presented failure.
