What about the poor sap that gets caught with his girlfriend in a car, and is charged with lewd conduct and has to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life. I do however see a need for monitoring Violent Offenders, but to give the community a means to try and intimidate someone, possibly inflict harm on someone? Here is what is going to happen over the next 10 years.
Everyone that is on a list will be removed from it. Their ability to get a job, find a place to live is greatly impacted. Their argument is solely this 'Continuing Civil Disability' a legal term. Either we are going to have to pay them for their 'Civil Disability' or do away with the list altogether.
Another note people are dumb, a person is smart. People see a mugshot they think 'Criminal.' People see someone on the Sex Offender Registry they think 'Pedophile.' In Baltimore there is a Gun Offender Registry. We already have a mug shot registry?! Whats next DUI registry? (Sarcasm.) As I am not a democrat, more conservative than anything, once someone completes their 'debt to society' they should be entitled to a second chance. There should be a period of time to see any recidivism before their chance at life is completely ruined.
This should be debated....

When one comes clean and pays his due ,,paysites as this should not be allowed...
But where do we draw the line at,,,some who are arrested several times for domestic abuse,,,pedophiles,,,rapist,,,etc.....????
Then we have the news articles and blogs...kinda impossible......
Many people make mistakes,,young and dumb,,etc...
They always say as well when you commit a crime you will end up back in jail,,,,not quite so!!!
With a majority of some YES...
I remember,,well to be honest,,,I was arrested,,,,when 18 with 2 grams of marijuana and had to do a a CREATE drug class with with coke/meth users and they laughed at me on why Im there,,,,,
I had to pay 425 dollars also for it????(my parents,,they were pissed,,,dad was cool though)
It was a 3 week course and it never even talked about marijuana???
It went to a misdamenor charge and would be dropped then..
I was treated like an AX killer or they caught the NIGHT STALKER!!!!
80 lbs skinny and a A cup!!!
But if one is violent and the news gets its it,,,???
Very interesting post!!!!
