NJ: The disappeared defy good Megan’s Law record | Editorial

The alliterative term “active absconders” has a nice ring to it, but those to whom the State of New Jersey applies the term are likely to be anything but nice.

They’re serious sex offenders who have disappeared without a trace after initial registration under New Jersey’s first-in-the-nation Megan’s Law, based on classifications that are supposed to follow them for life. Full Article

  1. Tired of this

    “whom officials fear could become recidivists who repeat horrific crimes”

    Good God, the fear mongering in this article. It’s always assumed that an absconder must have nefarious intentions, when more than likely, they absconded for reasons we can all relate to. A man (especially a free citizen who has supposedly paid his debt to society) can only take so much.

  2. 13 years to go the NY registry.

    Maybe I will stop registering. I guess that means I might reoffend? What a cruel joke. Let’s make a registry for convicted politicians. They hurt tens of thousands of children by STEALING their parents tax money thus depriving and causing pain and humiliation. But the judges (& D.A.’s) would just dismiss or lower the charges so registering would not be required. Hahahahahahahaha..

    Talk about fear mongering – who actually moves to new jersey???

    The article does point out some good points about reintegrating people into society. At least they mentioned both sides of societies views. I was convicted in NJ and it’s not the worst place to have to register (as a level I anyway). I wasn’t on the public registry and therefore didn’t have too many issues with vigilantes or being called out by nosy neighbors. I found employment within 2 weeks of getting out of incarceration and lived mostly in peace in NJ for 11 years. The PO’s were something else though; way too much biased opinions. It wasn’t until I moved to Georgia, where I got placed on the public registry, that employment and ignorant people became a problem (fellow employees complaining to HR, neighbors threatening me, countless job applications being denied, etc.). On the other hand, the PO’s in the county I live are somewhat fair in their interactions with me. All that said, it does suck to be on the registry, so I can understand why someone would abscond and it’s not necessarily to re-offend.
