NY cop convicted of torturing his adopted son for years burn marks and scars and mental, would have his record sealed if this becomes law??

Keep alienating people forced to register proves the registry is punishment and punitive. Stop excluding people you hate and put yourselves on a hypocrite registry for useless laws. Grow a brain, a spine, and grow up damn bullies!!
