LA: Legislators look at options to increase reliability of LA. sex offender registry

[houmatoday.com – 12/18/20]

Legislators began Thursday looking at changes to state law that would address inaccuracies in the registry that alerts neighbors that someone convicted of sex and/or child predatory crimes lives nearby.

The Louisiana Legislative Auditor found that the severity of the crime, called a tier, wasn’t accurate for 61% of the sex offenders tested. The information listed on the registry wasn’t updated in 21% of the cases.

That could mean the public often doesn’t know when a predator is within their midst. It could also mean that the miscategorized offender continues to be punished unnecessarily.

As if this was not predictable. Have we not been singing this tune for quite some time now? Sing it with me one more time: “The registry is inefficient, expensive, ineffective, a bureaucratic nightmare and serves no real purpose other than inflicting further shame and suffering on those who have already paid for their wrongdoing”. Perhaps someday, some elected official or a member of law enforcement or perhaps a judge, or even a “young career-minded opportunistic prosecutor” (‘redundant’, I know)…will have a moment of clarity…an epiphany..and actually say: “ya know….maybe we shouldn’t have a registry….it’s expensive…and accomplishes nothing….what if we… Read more »

“It could also mean that the miscategorized offender continues to be punished unnecessarily.” 😲 What?? It’s punishment?? 🤔 And, of course, LE says it lacks sufficient funding. 🙄

“Not incompetence or laziness” explains registry supporters to a t. Incompetent to actually do research to see their beloved project is a complete failure. Lazy because it doesn’t involve them when it actually does; yet are to stupid to care.

A stand alone sentence in the article:

“Local police use the registry when investigating sex crimes.”

Foe what? Nearly all new sex crime is committed by someone not registered. Of the few and far between that are committed by current registrants, what did the registry provide to the investigation?

Why does it seem like I’m the only one who questions what use the registry has for sex crime investigation? As far as I can tell, the only aid it gives to LE is funding to maintain it, which in all likelihood is misappropriated.

I agree it’s the same old song we all know what the registry is only used for punishing and shaming people for their past crimes and i know some people have committed worse crimes then outhers and probably need to be placed on some kind of watch list for public Safety BUT A 14 year old freshman dateing a 18 year old senior in high school 20/30 years ago is pointless information and lame az hell I’m so over IML

Good luck

David please cannot puzzling quirks be punishment enough or should we all think on that one. Nothing wrong with a bit of punishment if one goes outside the bun. Is it the black guy or the white guy or the chinese guy or even the woman that is more dangerous in this reliability effort or are we all born with a golden halo like some president want to be. I’m sure anyone can be more dangerous than anyone else given the right elements or circumstances. So what is the circumstances surrounding say an internet encounter or who’s on first… thank… Read more »

Puzzling quirks? Are these the reliablity in all this registry or should we all just take this ordeal with stride and take this defrauding or should we all speak up for truth and justice. Isn’t that what a court of law whether in LA or Nome Alaska is all about. Now yes Janice and her crew have baen nice to me. Sure earlier this year I gave you all a bit of preaching from the good book. I’m thankful janice let me do that and yes I have even gotten a bit of preaching from you all. Myself I don’t… Read more »
