GPS monitoring of sex offenders debated

Apr 28, 2009 Full story: Providence Journal 82

Rhode Island should require sex offenders to wear monitoring devices after prison while they appeal their re-offense risk level because some of the high-risk offenders' appeals "are taking upwards of two years" to be decided, a former state Parole Board chairwoman told the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday.

They can't "become" rehabilitated. This is a disease...it is impulse triggered. You need to chemically castrate them because that is where the true power is...not below the waist. See Florida's 1997 Chemical Castration Law and do some research, this could be given at they probation check in's.

Frontline on PBS did show last night on criminals being release this year at a mass exeadous of 700,000 and never before so many. Of that number 1/2 are severely mentally impaired and many schizophrenia and the only way to have them be successful is to MEDICATE and provide a strong SUPPORT network. I agree with OceanMist, the GPS in this example will not work. The only benefit is to provide a find of them, when a haneous act happens and then they send the signal out. It would prove more benefical other ways.

And yes, 90+% of the incidence does occur within the childs familiarity network. We need to TEACH STRANGER and INAPPROPRIATE BEHAVIOR in the schools.

OM also states that they typically offend in their own home....then when and if they get out, put them on an island where they are not exposed to anyone except themselves. It would be more cost effective to build a beautiful facility there and have security around the island via boat on a shoot to kill policy if they leave.

This is one issue, but why does no one worry about murders being released early? no one tracks them, no one knows where they live....etc. No one worries about ex-convict murders.

Many of them commit murder when let loose. It's worse, we don't know about them.

Today's news, which will be high on my new destination of places to live:

"Newly convicted sex offenders are effectively prohibited from living in Santa Clarita as the result of a decision by the City Council.

The ordinance, which follows on the heels of a similar county decision, was passed Tuesday night. It includes nearly all of Santa Clarita, and prohibits newly registered sex offenders from living within 2,000 feet of child-care centers, trails, parks, paseos and open space within city limits."

They should simply remain imprisoned until the appeal process is completely exhausted as it'll prove to be the most efficient and economical method of assuring a potential relapse/recidivism of the individual as history has shown that sex offenders often repeat their offense even while under GPS monitoring, such as the man who was released under "house arrest" with a GPS ankle device that went out, raped and murdered yet ANOTHER little girl...The public will take only so much of this lack of judicial/penal oversight before they start lodging indefensible class action lawsuits which will ultimately end up costing the judicial/penal/legal arm of our government BILLIONS of 'personal capacity' dollars due to the inherent loss of life/recidivism invariably associated with sex offenders.

Does anyone know how the law defines a sex offender? Hell you could be one right now. Looks like more fanatics to me. There’s never a shortage of fanatics. If they sold fanatic stock I'd be a billionaire.

Law Dictionary: Sex Offender
Top Home > Library > Law & Legal Issues > Law DictionaryPerson convicted of a sexual offense such as rape (sexual assault), sexual contact, or lewdness. In some states sexual activity between consenting adults of the same sex is classified as criminal. Some states house sex offenders together and offer specialized counseling programs in an effort to successfully treat such offenders and thus prevent recidivism. Some states require lifetime registration of offenders with law enforcement.
Wikipedia: Sex offender
Top Home > Library > Miscellaneous > WikipediaThis article is about the criminal term. For the novel, see The Sex Offender: A Novel.
The examples and perspective in this article deal primarily with the United States and do not represent a worldwide view of the subject. Please improve this article or discuss the issue on the talk page.
A sex offender (short for sexual offender) is a person who has been criminally charged and convicted of, or has pled "guilty" or Nolo contendere to, a sex crime. Crimes requiring mandatory sex offender registration may include child sexual abuse, downloading child pornography, rape, and statutory rape. The term sex offender is a broad term, with sexual predator often being used to describe a more severe physical or repeat sexual offense. In the United States, United Kingdom, and other countries a convicted sex offender is often required to register with the respective jurisdiction's sex offender registry. These registry databases are frequently accesible to the public through the internet.Sexual offenders are also sometimes classified into levels[1]. The highest level offenders generally must register as a sex offender for their entire lives, whereas low level offenders may only need to register for a limited time. As a label of identity it is used in criminal psychology.
"yernogood"...says it all, you made some idiotic remarks that make no sense based on the above terminolgy.

Well as I say, when you haven’t a clue what to say just post little icons. The way I see it “X” marks the spot where I eat my nuts and I can use the bulb so I don’t eat the shells by mistake. Thanks for the gifts you narrow minded witch hunters. Ah I love a puppet….

I hope none of you has a son that has a girlfriend that finds out your son cheated on her and that girl cries rape to get even with your son and he becomes a sexual predator and has to wear a GPS monitor. Na that can’t happen!! By the way when you get labeled a sexual predator, there’s a better chance of curing herpes than that title. On with the witch hunt villagers!!

I remember reading somewhere that people that post in all caps are mentally challenged. You seem to hold children in very high regard. How High? Oh I’m sorry, you are but a child yourself.

You would be quite comical on a stage behind a microphone in front of a crowd. You must first though know what you’re talking about. Good luck with the career.

I love the cute funny little icons you fanatics hand out. Really, how old are you people? You are completely clueless as to what this law reads. Sure child molesters are part of it, but the smallest part of it. Why don’t you look at who is involved before you spew your crap. It’s scary, people like you are allowed to vote. On with the witch hunt villagers….
