we wouldn't have this problem if the laws in our country were changed. why would anyone release these people who are only human trash is beyond me.we have so many cases of people that are molesters who go on to repeat these offenses why not send them to a island where they cannot escape to society..maybe they should house them on alcatraz island. or give them the death penalty without the 20 year wait.

These people, as well as myself, have served thier time in prison. Maybe you should check out the real facts that less than five percent of sex offenders reoffend. I am one of the majority that is extreamly sorry about what I have done, and am saddened and sickened by the number of stories about sexual assalts on the television. But the fact remains that eventually most offenders will be released, and once released from prison they have to live somewhere. The current laws are making it harder and harder for sex offenders to find housing. So many of them are being listed as homeless, which means that the police have no idea where they are living. Since there is that five percent that do reoffend, isn't it important to make sure the police know where all offenders live, rather than making them all be listed as homeless.
I personally don't like being on the registry, but I do think it can be a valuable tool for police so I agree with (and adhear to) it just so that five percent that do reoffend will be listed.

personally I do not care how the sex offenders feel. They have ruined a kids life forever, are job as parents are to protect are CHILDREN!!! If you sexually abused a child as far as I am concerned, I am glad the laws are what they are its about time we protect are kids first, if it means you are sorry for your act, which all sex offenders say, I sure in the hell do not believe you and am not willing to risk any kids innocence on the chance there is one who did not. you deserve the life you got, quit whining.

I don't care if these offenders are "sorry". I don't care if they have served their time. I don't care that "the real facts are that less than five percent reoffend". Really? Or is less than five percent actually get caught again? I care nothing about these disgusting individuals that prey on innocent children. Nothing less than the death penalty would work for me. Put it on the ballot, and I will be the first in line to vote for it. And no, I was never a victim of this horrid crime.
