I was thinking. Since not all offenders have family or friends, when a sex offender dies, is the sheriff departments just going to boost the fear factor, and mark that offender as being ABSCONDED? Thus scaring people more? If so, imagine what it is going to be like in 10 or 20 years from now, there will be millions of dead offenders on the registry.
Who is going to go after these dead sex offenders? Nothing more dangerous than a dead sex offender who can walk through walls and enter your child's bedroom.... We must pass more laws to go after dead sex offenders!!!
And until TAPS and others figure out how to "bring back the dead," then I'm afraid the registry is going to grow in leaps and bounds.
Does the police check obituaries and death certificates, then take those who are now deceased off the registries? I doubt it. So just think about it....
