So a few of us were sitting around talking, and someone raised a really good point about sex offender registration. Basically, this is the judicial system admitting its failure here. By forcing sex offenders to register, they are admitting two things: The first is that the sex offender is not rehabilitated from their perversions. If they were rehabilitated, then they could be released from prison with no further actions taken, as most crimes are. The second is that the judiciary is admitting that they cannot keep the public safe because this registration is so that law enforcement can know where the sex offender lives at and so that people that live in the area can know where the sex offender lives so that they can take measures to protect themselves from the sex offender. Now we all know that there are a few people on the sex offender registry that don’t belong there, such as people who get public urination citations from taking a piss at 2:00 in the morning as the bars close. This thread isn’t about those people. This thread is about the legitimate sex offenders who try to get a table for one at Chuck E Cheese so that they can creep on kids. Is this not an admission of failure by the judiciary? Should the penalties for these crimes not be reexamined?
