The frightening aspect involves reporting of non-compliant sex offenders. There are so many things wrong with this. First it perpetuates the myth that former sex offenders represent a heightened danger. Also, people are free to report what they, as untrained private citizens, consider to be non-compliance. Any unsubstantiated report of a technical violation of registration requirements will cause considerable discomfort to a registered citizen. If that person happens to still be under supervision, the report will quite likely result in at least temporary jail time, until an investigation is complete. This opens the door to simple harassment; another way for persons to assault registered citizens without risking criminal sanctions. This website should be limited to tips regarding actual fugitives.
