The legal system is broken. Regardless of what the Supreme Court thinks, the sex registry is unconstitutional and cruel and unusual punishment designed to torture…simple as that. It servers no other purpose. If an offender of any sort of violent crime (robbery, rape, etc) is seen fit to be released into the general population then they should be allowed to work or live anywhere they wish. Let police know where they are but there is no reason for the ignorant masses to have that sort of personal information.
Nearly any other “criminal” is allowed a second chance except those labelled as sex offenders. How is that fair? How is that the American way? It is shameful and unfair. If you have paid your debt to society then you should be allowed to move on with your life without this unfair classification. Holier than thou people feel superior when they can log on from their homes to see who living around them has the scarlet letter. Sad little people they are.
