Ive thought about this situation very very carefully and even though I know of no one
in which he or her life has been affected
by this, on either side of the fence, I came
to the conclusion:

If the person who has committed this crime,
has to have his or her name place on a sex
registry list for this length of time,

Why should he or she worry about committing
the same crime, once, twice, or more?

To be placed on a list, he or she would
continuously feel he or she is still in
prison.

So I say, it would be better to give the
sex offender an incentive not to be placed
on a list for so long, than to be placed
on a list for the majority of the life he
or she may have.

When enough time has gone by, this country
will realize theres just no incentive out
there to keep a sex offender from doing the
same thing over and over again and has more
than likely done the same thing over and
over again. There has to be an incentive,
otherwise......
Sorry to say.

Perhaps a compromise could be arranged.

Be put on a public list for five years,
for example.

Then only be put on a list for the police
to see for ten years.

I seriously do not feel it should be any
longer than this, otherwise there just
will not be any incentive not to commit
again and again.

A murderer has an incentive
not to murder again.

But a sex offender does not
have an incentive.

If you had children, or were a woman living alone, would it not be fair to know a sex offender moved next door or in the community? In order to prevent child molestation, rape and sexual abuse. Just to know where a potential sex offender resides would be a safe guard. That does not mean you have any right to harass the offender. Also, would it not be important that such a person with such a history not be allowed to work with children?

If you were a child convicted of something you knew nothing about, should they be able to put you on the registry for life? To be accused of a predator by everyone who sees you on the list?

Its a list and it doesn't care who you are or what you've done. And people see red and some even kill those on this list. The youngest person on the list was 6 years old.

Is it fair to do this to a child? Because the child experimented with things adults refused to tell them about?

Well if you can keep your hands off underage people you should be fine. 17 yo with a 13 yo. Well kid (guy or girl) if you want to stick it in or have it stuck in maybe just maybe stick with your own age. She/He lied to you? well card her/him or check their year book. Might take time to get there but isn't that better than 10 minutes of pleasure for 10/15/life on CSC sites.
