Part 2 is below as well. Also, please see the comments by eAdvocate below this post.
Please take a look at this video (or below) and see if you agree, disagree, or are neutral. I failed to hear any mention of a sex offender recidivism rate being below 2%, I failed to hear any mention of sex offenders having been arrested, serving their time, and then being on a registry for up to life. When does the sentence end?
I’m also troubled by the way Marc Santia closed the report by asking: "Are you safe?" Really? He also mentioned that it has been getting the attention of lawmakers. What else can they do? Kill every offender? Jail every offender? Place computer chips under the skin of every offender?
I guess my point is that while there exists some very dangerous and deranged people that are sex offenders, aren’t there also deranged and dangerous arsonists, murderers, and home invaders? Why is it only SO’s that are singled out? I have a lot of questions and I can’t find any real answers. The reporters spread fear, not hope.
I will be very curious to see how our wonderful lawmakers react to this. I predict another knee jerk, satisfy the public, make everyone safe reaction that they always seem to give. Safety or votes? Who knows.
Okay, okay, I go on and on. I will add part two to this same blog tomorrow. Stay tuned.
