NJ: How N.J. determines which sex offenders are dangerous, explained

Keeping track of New Jersey’s registered sex offenders falls to Megan’s Law units in all 21 counties. That includes classifying offenders based on the potential danger they pose to the public. When offenders registered in other states move to New Jersey, they undergo a fresh classification process based on Garden State guidelines. Full Article

“How N.J. determines which sex offenders are dangerous, explained”

This is interesting and something I had not seen before.

Imagine every state having a different “scientific” study to determine how dangerous lead in paint is to the development of neurons in a child’s brain. If the feds are basically requiring states to classify us as dangerous commodities, then there needs to be a federal standard based on science. I have seen studies that show that smoking increase the chance of dying from cancer by ten times. Is there even any equivalent report to show how much more likely (or less likely) someone is to becoming a victim of crime by living near a registrant or a former offender whom… Read more »

Going by their grading scale, I’d be reclassified as a tier 1 if they really do all of this. Cant say I’d want to live in New Jersey though.

I never could understand the lack of common sense in humanity: so because a rare freak violently killed a child, and happened to rape her, that somehow translates into the Registry and now International Travel Restrictions all because this disgusting waste of humanity that should have never been born decided to be VIOLENT and kill another human being? How the hell does that make it OK to register people who have absolutely NO history of violence nor does their ‘sexual crime’ even have any violent elements to it? What about pornography? Where the hell is a single damn link of… Read more »

So under New Jersey’s risk assessment, I’d be low risk and Tier 1. However, under California’s SARATSO/Static-99R tiered law I’d be “high” risk and Tier 3.

California is not “liberal” at all. It’s a fascist regime.

I’d be curious how the NJ Offender Assessment has worked compared to CA’s SORATSO(?)/ Static-99 for accuracy in predicting re-offense.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
