One man doesn't speak for everyone!
This is just more of the usual media hysteria disinformation campaign. They interview one person and make it seem like all ex-sex offenders think like him, well, they do not. Why didn't you interview hundreds of ex-offenders who removed their GPS devices, then tell us what the majority said? Also, this is clearly a violation of probation / parole, and they have the power to send them back to prison, so new laws are not needed, not unless you are a politician who is trying to help yourself look like you are doing something!

WOODLAND (KCRA) - In an exclusive interview with KCRA 3, a convicted sex offender revealed child molesters have no fear of going back to prison after cutting their GPS tracking devices.
"Yeah, it's 30 days in a county jail. It's a slap on the wrist to them," said Will, who was convicted of child molestation.
Will is employed in Yolo County, and asked KCRA 3 not to reveal his full name, for fear of losing his job.
Will has been wearing a GPS tracking device on his ankle ever since he was released from prison in October 2011.
He served eight years behind bars after being convicted on drug and sex-offender charges.
"Do I consider myself a child molester anymore? Absolutely not," Will told KCRA 3.
Will said he is clean and sober now, after years of drug and alcohol abuse.
The low point came in 1995, when he molested a 5-year-old.
While charges were pending against him, Will fled to Arizona and lived there for eight years before he turned himself in to authorities.
"I made a bad judgment call. I was very amped up on methamphetamine," Will told KCRA 3. "Most child molesters make these mistakes because they were either victims themselves, or they were extremely high on drugs or alcohol."
- This may be true for some, but it's not true for many others. Again, it's one mans opinion.
