MA: More Than A Quarter Of Boston’s Registered Sex Offenders Are Homeless

The purpose of the Massachusetts Sex Offender Registry is to keep track of where dangerous sex offenders are, but what if they have no address? That’s the case with ____ ____, who was arraigned Tuesday, accused of kidnapping two twelve-year-old sisters in Cambridge before they were able to break free. He’s listed on the Sex Offender Registry as “homeless” in Boston. Full Article

Just more of the “necessary” proof of the original intent behind the electronic regime. To utilize datahases. It always were a blacklist. Popular or not.

SCOTUS itself disputes the first line in the piece. “Dangerousness” was NOT in play in the regime. So her work begins on false declaration in purpose. Fake news covers results but ignores cause because they’re “data brokers” in their own right. Thus restrictive disclosure laws concerning sex offenders used to be unlawful under statute for ” unauthorized information sharing” 175.45(6)1993WI act98. The status quo today is the inverse via 301.45.
The old law was a roadblock to the agenda of the surveillance saints.

Wait. He was a registrant and being required to register didnt stop the crime? And having an ankle bracelet would have stopped this how? Besides of course it would be unreasonable under the 4th amendment.

Why was a anti-registrant group sought for comment but a pro-registant group was not?

There’s a million of us, if 1% of registrants sent this place an email with the data that shows this doesnt help, I wonder if things would slowly change?

@Bob: “He was a registrant and being required to register didnt stop the crime?” —– This is where they talk out of both sides of their mouths. If the person doesn’t recidivate, it’s due to the registry working. If the person does recidivate, it’s because one cannot be “cured” and the “as high as 80%” recidivism means it was bound to happen. I would love for someone good at math to run the numbers on how long it would take for various recidivism rates to empty a ML of all people. If 80% re-offend, it would seem the recidivism would… Read more »

As a data scientist this is something I’d love to try and model

@LostandDevastated:
You were the exact person I had in mind for this! 🙂 I wasn’t sure you were on here anymore.

I hope you’re doing well. You’ve been silent, and I’ve been concerned.

Not to mention more wisdom from Wendy Murphy: “This is the type of criminal who wants to do anything but tell us where they are,” said victims’ advocate Wendy Murphy. “Yet we’re giving them the power to game the system.” She is pushing for a solution. “If you say that you live in a place that isn’t on a map, or any one of these other tricks, then you should have to live on a bracelet, you should have a GPS device attached to your body.” Of course, all us registrants have complete control over those who make the maps.… Read more »

Isn’t it interesting that the government is willing to pay law enforcement overtime to check on homeless registrants. What if the government paid the same amount of money to house the same homeless registrants?

Janice,
The people are all to willing to pay for housing for sex offenders in jail or prison. This is what Byrne grants are for. The biggest winners resulting from the 94OMNIBUS. 1) Lawyers, bureaucrats , politicians.and the police state.

Denver does this…

https://denver.cbslocal.com/2018/05/31/new-housing-for-the-homeless-opens-in-denver/

The city spends significantly more money on things like jail time, detox programs and hospital visits for the homeless than it did on this. Supportive housing actually saves the city an average of $29,000 per person.

And if Denver city council had their way, they would’ve provided an injection site for those addicted to opioids and heroin. This effort was denied in the state legislature recently.

Take some off the street to make room for those who may end up on it?

@Janice: what the hell is wrong with you? If governments solved problems, they would have to lay off tons of law enforcement, judges, counselors, jail workers, etc etc etc… you know all those public servants. Oh, and where would government get their funds if the billionaires had no one to pay off or influence to get what they want. Hell no we can’t have all that BS. As a side note: 5 out of the top 13 cities in the WORLD with the highest number of homeless are in what country???? 1 guess…. it starts with U.S….
