OH - AG Mike DeWine - Just the usual fear mongering jerk out to make a name for himself!
He must be falling in his ratings, so he is out once again targeting sex offenders to help his own career. Guess he's ticked off about being required to remove some offenders from the registry, or the latest Offender Watch mass screw up. See the following comments from eAdvocate. You will also notice, in the videos below, that he is using people who are on the registry and complying with the laws, not predators out committing new crimes. But hey, sensationalism always sells, right?

COLUMBUS - As he rolled out a new plan to protect Ohio kids from sex offenders, Attorney General Mike DeWine described predators as "clowns," "scum" and even "jackasses."
- So once again, another idiot talking about sex offenders, but then making it appears as if all are predators. And calling them clowns, scum and jackasses? Maybe he should look in the mirror!
"They're literally out there like sharks and they're going to hit just as fast as they can. We're going to hit back," DeWine said.
- Oh yeah, show us the proof of your insane statement Mr. Winey!
The "Crimes Against Children Initiative" includes a new unit at the Bureau of Investigation. The plan is to hire 15 experts who will investigate child pornography cases online.
The program also expands the number of special prosecutors in the Attorney General's office, creates a rapid response team, provides specialized training for local law enforcement, and aims to raise public awareness about convicted sex offenders who have not complied with registration laws.
DeWine said plans for the program had been in the works weeks before a high profile sex abuse scandal broke out at Penn State University, but the case is a reminder.
"My fear is that people will look at the tragedy of Penn State and say, 'Well that was over there' and not realize it happens every single day," DeWine said.
