I don't agree at all. I don't think these people should be anywhere near children. Actually if I had my way all sex offenders would be put to death. There is no need for them here on this planet.

Your opinion "all sex offenders" should be put to death is as broad of a stroke as politicians with these laws. Do you realize there are people on the registry for teen consensual sex? My son is one of these registered sex offenders cause at sixteen he met a girl in a Des Moines club who told him she was sixteen, they had sex and months later he got questioned by police. He told the truth and he is now a registered sex offender for life at age seventeen. Is this justice? He is no threat to children simply a young man, charged as an adult, labeled a sex offender for a consensual sx act.

So my teen son should be killed just cause Iowa politicians seem to not care they are tangling teens into these laws and hell they won't kill him neuter him? Does anyone here realise people can be put on registry for peeing in the woods, or kids playing doctor? Before you judge you should know all sides to the sex offender issue my son could any one of your son's grandson's, nephews etc.

I like to share a link with you all and hope you will take a look

http://www.ethicaltreatment.org

Here are many stories of children who are being albeled sex offenders for such things like playing doctotor or consensual sex acts between consenting teens.

Check out Kansas registry there are children as young as twelve on there for similar matters altho the registry will not tell you the truth behind the actual charge as teh laws make no differentiation between children or adults. Ever here of Genarlo Wilson? He had consensual oral sex with a fifteen year old girlfriend and was sentenced to ten years in prison then lifetime registry. His story is a crime t children made by our government and politicians who lie to the public and one never hears of the real stories not just the killings of innocent children but the children being labled as sex offenders.

Ever here of Mark Lunsford? The father of Jessica Lunsford killed by John Coohey in FL? His son Josh, age 18, is now facing sex charges in a Ohio court for his fourteen year old girlfriend. She was consenting yet he is being charged but will he face the registry since he is the son of a child of Mark?

I would bet mr liberal is a sexoffender it is a typical sexoffender responce! act like the most extreem to get the focus on someone else psychology 101!! The problem is most of the politicians passing the legislation to ruin America with it police state! are in fact just like Mr liberals! Guilty comcious speaking!! of course no one would suspect them if they did so! Wake Up America if security is so important to your really and your offspring more important than the rest of the planet and freedom then I have a suggestion check yourself into the nearest prison with your family where you can live under armed guard and feel safe LOL

Please take the time to realize Iowa politicians are convicting children of consensual sex acts. Do a search under Iowa registry at age 18 there are 247 teens on the registry and if half our consensual sex then that is a huge waste of valuable resources and money to monitor these boys for a consenting act.

Read this story:

http://www.ethicaltreatment.org/mary.htm

or google search Zach Campton of Iowa or Chris Spidell of Iowa or Karla Spidell of Iowa this sixteen year old sits in jail while the government takes the next year to decide if he should be tried as a adult or juvenile.

What is happening to these teens in Iowa is a outrage since on Monday Joshua Lunsford walked on a sex crime charge at age eighteen and is not required to register as a sex offender.

Its time to make politicians stop using our children as sacrificial lambs to gain more votes.

My son was lied too as well by a girl at a teen club in des Moines Iowa and now is a aggravated offender for life for a three year age difference...There is a federal Romeo/Juliet law I am trying to enact in Iowa and across this country contact me if you like to talk. A petition is up to pass such legislation here http://www.rickyslife.com my email is rickysmom@rickyslife.com

What is sad is these girls lie and are not punished or held accountable and move on to live a full life and possibly destroying more young lives as they continue to have sex.

My son is a so called "sex offender", and hurt noone. Guy 19 girl 15. All but for age, it was consentual. The law for consent in Massachusetts is 16. If a 40 year old sick man was screwing a 16 year old, it is totally not against the law, and these are the people's lives they are not ruining. Where is the justice? Is the system fucked or what?

I hope every polition that passed these laws have children on the registry for experimental sex like my son. How can our society put sex on every TV show and expect it not to make kids curious. My son is 15 and did not know this was against the law. Now he has to be on the registry for 25 years. Sure what he did was wrong, but this will ruin his life forever. Kids are not the same as adults they don't always know what the consequences are. We all did things that are wrong as children, should we all be on that registry for life? Come on even president Clinton experimented and got caught. Look at the politions who have been caught doing things they shouldn't. At least they knew the cosequences unlike a teenage boy with raging hormones. These new laws are way out of control, children are not the same and someone needs to change these laws. We can't continue to put sex in their faces and expect them to ignore it.

You are a complete idiot.
You obviously don't know anything about the sex offenders list, do you?
NOT ALL SEX OFFENDERS ARE THREATS.
Urinate in public, you're a sex offender.
Consentual sex, you're a sex offender.
Exposing pictures to your boyfriend/girlfriend, you're a sex offender.
"Streaking" or "Flashing", you're a sex offender.
If we show all this on TV, why aren't they considered sex offenders?
Why is the sex offenders list the ONLY list out there? I believe that they don't have anything severe to punish these people but to stick them on the list.
But what this really does is drive the offenders under-ground, then, they become harder to track.
I've said enough.
Kthanks.

Ok if people say we should kill sex offenders then we should look back at everybodies history and kill anybody who when they were young 18 or 19 and the girl was 15-17 because it happens all the time and they should be gathered up and murdered as well. An act like that is = Sex offender! But wait these people are not on the list they are not even charged or found guilty..Oh wait the girl and the guy had consensual sex. These same people who scream about other people may have done the same thing when they were young. Use common sense. In fact look back 100 years or so at everybodies families. Hey great great grandma was most likely 13 or 14 when she got married and great great grandpa was prolly the same or wow some may be 10 yrs older. I think people who do or sell drugs especially to minors should be killed as well.. Am I justified by making a claim like this. Think before we speak people. Nobody has the right to take a life or cut someones genitals up. We are talking about laws that is you read the constitution and then read the laws you realize hey these are unconstitutional. Just change the wording to maybe DWI Offender is that constitutional for those people? We have people who beat their kids and never serve punishment like people on the SO lists. Maybe if people minded their own business or at least get their facts from someplace other than the media (CNN, MSNBC and local news stations) we may have less idiots out there making feel good laws which don't work and waste money and violates human rights.
