AK: Going home – Even sex offenders should get a chance to rejoin society

The good news is that Alaska’s sex offender treatment program works. The bad news is that a shortage of providers creates a many-months-long waiting list that traps sex offenders from rural Alaska in Anchorage, sometimes homeless.

With 250 sex offenders coming out of Alaska prisons annually, 45 percent of them Native, this is a public safety threat and a humanitarian fiasco. We must do better. Full Opinion Piece (3rd of 3)

    A very good op-ed piece. I’m sure nobody missed the irony that it’s from Alaska, birthplace of the Smith decision. This can only help our cause. The tides continue in our favor, my friends. God works in mysterious ways…and sometimes on a slower timeline than we impatient humans like.

      FYI: God has nothing to do with it.

      As long as Online community notification exists – in any iteration – there’s no such thing as moving on or starting over.

        @Registry Rage:
        Thank you for your perspective and opinion. However it is not “FYI.” The “I” stands for information, which you aren’t giving, and you’re certainly not enlightening me or anyone with hard fact. It is merely your opinion. I respectfully ask you to allow me mine.

    well the wall may not be tumbling down , but its at coming down a brick at a time , that’s positive , and truth seems to be the very thing that’s chipping at those bricks , but the registry is still a crime and a compete lie , and all of the judges that have let this go on and calling it regulatory and there for not punitive should all go to prison and forced to read Nancy Drew books or something frightening like that 🙂

  3. New Person

    I liked the author’s perspective. He bought into the fear, but after recent findings and research, it’s all just that… fear based and not human, social science fact based. He even quoted “frightening and high” to highlight the point.
