Not sure who you're talking to, but I'll answer
No. I don't put having an underage girlfriend in the same class as a rapist or child molester. He should know better but I don't think it makes him
The same situation involing a 20+ year old and a minor, IMHO he should be registered.
I don't. He should be punished (as should the 18-year-old) In my opinion, having an underage girlfriend is a different thing than forced sex.
Another thing I would like to know, is has these lists helped anyone, or saved a life or stopped a assault? or does it alienate these people, or
force them to gather with other crimminals?
I have no idea. But the innocent citizens have a right to the information.
How do you all feel about a murderers list?
Auto theft list?
Sex offenders repeat offend. It's one of the hardest characteristics to turn around in a person. Murderers, car thefts, burgulars can all be
rehabilitated, but the chances for sex offenders are much smaller. I don't have any sources on this except:
I was a victim of multiple child molestation and rape
I was an underage girlfriend of a 21-year-old
I counseled child molesters in prison (I wasn't in prison
I have studied it a lot.
Once a person decides to ACT on their perverse desires, it's REALLY hard for them to decide not to do it the next time. Some of those guys in prison
tried to convince me that it was the child's fault. How many car thieves blame it on the car?
