Sexual offenses are serious crimes. There is no doubt that the intentions behind creating the laws meant to punish and deter sex offenders were noble.
However, according to opponents of the sex offender registration laws, such as Human Rights Watch, there is no proof that these laws achieved the purpose they were designed for.
As a former sex crimes prosecutor, I share that skepticism.
It’s one reason why, after years of serving as Chief of the Sex Unit and Chief of the Child Abuse Unit in Macomb County, Michigan, I left a cushy government job to serve on the defense side of the table.
Most recently, I was part of the singer R Kelly’s legal team.
How did I get to that 360-degree turn—from prosecuting sex offenders to a conviction that the laws do not deter offenders from committing sexual offenses and do nothing to help individual victims of sexual abuse?
Seen this atty write before and with good solid thinking behind their contribution.
However, I’m not aware of this they wrote, “In 1996, the Pam Lychner Act created a national database of convicted sex offenders that tracks sex offenders as they move from state to state and cover for states not in compliance with the Jacob Wetterling Act Sex offenders who were living in states that do not have a “minimally sufficient” registry program were now required to report to the FBI. This way, no one could hide in states that were lax in their sexual registry requirements.”
Has anyone reported to the G men because of this and reads this forum or know of anyone who does?
Good conclusion overall which we all already knew but at least someone else gets it.
As per Human Rights Watch, the database registry regime itself is an abomination of human right precisely because human is slave to machine ( database) maintenance. Human is subservient to the presumptive government database and it’s “necessary” upkeep.
Ah the arrogance of the proud. Sounds like law enforcement are the proud boys for this internet game or scandal. Scandalous yes much of this punishment is arrogant to a base factor of man’s wisdom. Hey we all did just as good without computers.
So where is the phrase, “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses. Today its give me your credit card or its rather like let me screw you before you screw me in so many words that are blind and vain. So whats evil today? a lot of these internet sex issues. Whats wicked being conned by ruthless measures as if your not going to come down here to meet – we are going to come and get you…. sounds like an internet text to me when push comes to shove, or whats taking you so long when they call to make sure your coming down to this con or bringing something with you to prove that it was you.
What more should one say, the proof is in the con…….. Is it fair… To what extent or whats fair in love and war.
