After Epstein death, glaring loopholes in national sex offender registry raise concerns

Amid the fallout from the death of Jeffrey Epstein – compounded by sharp questions as to why he was able to live such a lavish and unencumbered life despite being a registered sex offender – scrutiny has turned to the National Sex Offender Registry, its discrepancies and its lack of uniformity – all of which the disgraced financier may have exploited.

I’ve been waiting for this type of article to appear. The haters are going to have their hair on fire until “something is done” so we can all “save just one child.” Aside from the numerous factual errors in the op-ed piece, at least makes a feeble attempt to present both sides of the argument. Of course our side is shorter and at the end of the article… In some ways, I hope this DOES spur conversation. What better way to get the real info and facts out in a wholesale manner? Of course I also dread the possible outcomes…though… Read more »

This article wasn’t entirely terrible…a surprise in itself, but it did include interesting statistics with recidivism being cited at 10% and 13% (untreated)…

I think this number is high, but regardless, what would be nice to see is statistics cited in this fashion:

90% of treated Sex Offenders do not re-offend, while 87% of the untreated do not re-offend.

See the difference? Same statistics…but one is damned sight better for us to have printed and disseminated!

Best Wishes, James I

@James I:
Hmmm, one could almost call those non-recidivism rates “comforting and high”….

If anything, this incident should show how useless the registry is. This had nothing to do with loopholes and everything to do with corruption in the justice system. He was a billionaire with lots of connections so he was given a free pass. It is as simple as that. The entire time he was flying around the world, going out of the country, indulging, and cavorting on Lolita Island with big money people many of us were having sheriffs show up at dawn to give residency checks, we were sitting for two hours at the police station registering, being told… Read more »

Yeah the loophole is if you’re super rich you can skirt ANY law.

What this whole ordeal really shows is that the registry doesn’t work.

I stopped reading this article immediately after reading the very first paragraph as follows: —– Amid the fallout from the death of Jeffrey Epstein – compounded by sharp questions as to why he was able to live such a lavish and unencumbered life despite being a registered sex offender – scrutiny has turned to the National Sex Offender Registry, its discrepancies and its lack of uniformity – all of which the disgraced financier may have exploited.—– This part of the paragraph – “why he was able to live such a lavish and unencumbered life” is what bothered me. It clearly… Read more »

The presumption that database will save you from violence before it occurs is shortsighted.
The propaganda is used to maintain the status quo( null) in gov agency USE of the machine database. Unfettered and unconstitutional USE was virtue signaled in the Doe03 decisions upholding OMNIBUS94 provisions come and control Act, spoon fed to Congress by unionized social reformers of the national democratic specialists & Byrne Grant folks. Considering the billable legal fees alone a boon for lawyers in criminal, civil and tort types.

Look at what has not happened in MI.

This article first complains about the role of money. It doesn’t appear this guy did anything crazy with money to avoid registration besides having the resources to live where he wanted. Ok… THEN the article complains about sex offenders living near bus stops any youth centers… ok… do that, but then offenders are going to need money (see complaint 1) or they may end up homeless. THEN the article complains about homeless sex offenders and stokes outrage by pointing out that we don’t know where they are if their address is “On the street”. The article complains also about photos… Read more »

Lauren Book’s hoax of an organization did nothing to prevent Epstein’s victimizing schemes. Donators to her fake .org should demand their money back, no? These facts regarding the elite speak for themselves. Besides, this registry has seemed to be a psychological projection, in that what the media and elite have accused common citizens of doing is what they seemed to have been doing themselves for decades, perhaps centuries. On top of that, the registry is a crippling effect of the American Constitution with more Americans losing their rights to no end. All this will change very soon – as a… Read more »
