WI - Oshkosh Police Dept. Sex Offender Public Meeting March 5, 2014

Experts? They are all law enforcement. Where are the sex offender treatment providers / therapists?

You say reintegation into the community, but residency restrictions and the online hit-list doesn't help!

And the public has harsh reactions because you, the media and others continue to make them all look like child molesting, predator pedophiles, which they are not!

Education in schools and by the parents is the key to putting a dent in sexual abuse not hysteria and disinformation.

"...but then she threw out that old unproven statistic that 70-80% of sex offenses go unreported." How in the hell does anyone know that 70-80% of sex offenses go unreported when they are not reported to begin with????? This type of exhibitionism is just that, to solidify their own position - to make people go oooohhhh God help us. How does anyone throw out any statistic, and it has not even been explored? Much less trying to analogize UNREPORTED SEX CRIMES. This is incredible to say the least.

The registry is nothing but illusory correlation and conformation bias. It's any easy sell to the sheeple with kids. "Our children.." fear-driven hyperbole.

Exactly, nobody knows, they just throw out some magical number to justify their insane laws.

Unfortunately this is the M.O. of most of those that support the registry. They have been throwing out stats that have been since proven incorrect for years and still continue to use them. The 100,000 missing sex offenders is one example. There has never been proof that 100,000 registrants have just disappeared, however there has been proof that dead registrants continue to be listed on the registry for years as "Failure to Register". Maybe that's where the missing have gone. That problem could be cleared up easily by going to the last known address and asking a few questions, but that would be an intelligent action that those in charge would never think of.

Although I understand what you are saying about the masses, calling them 'Sheeple' takes away alot of the power of your argument.

It really doesn't matter what language you use. Had he said "misinformed people" instead of "sheeple" do you really think it would had many any difference at all in anything? We're just anonymous commenters angry at the shit that is going on, we're not lobbyist in expensive suits speaking in front of congress. Most people are not persuaded by argument anyway. Most people will not learn until it is their son, father or husband who is on the registry. Look around you, all the people you see here have been effected by the registry in some way. I may be the only one here who is not on the registry or have family on the registry. I'm here because as a non-offending pedophile I'm equally sick and tired of all hysteria. And who knows, the way society is headed one day I could be jailed just for my thoughts.

I too have to say that this was a fair presentation. If you compared this presentation to what I have seen law enforcement here in Texas has said, it is day and night. The first woman COULD have slammed sex offenders, but she pretty much presented the facts. Believe me, I am absolutely NOT on the side of law enforcement or the registry ( I am on there(, but at least this was a fair presentation. Just think of what they COULD have said...and how the media would have run with it!

One could propose, for arguments sake, that the missing 100,000 unregistered SO's were murdered and disposed of by vigilantes as a direct result of the Megan's law websites. But, even if it were true, would it raise any concerns from the "Masses".?

I know that in my home state of Florida (I am not a sex offender myself, unlike most others here) they have a policy where they keep you listed on the sex offender registry for something like a year or two after you die. The odd explanation they give (yes there's an online explanation for it) is so that the victim of the offense will have a year or two to search the registry and realize the perpetrator's dead. That would mean that if you move into the now dead RSO's house after they die, your house will be listed on the registry, even though you aren't an RSO. Since Florida also lists currently imprisoned offenders on the SOR, if you were to buy a house from a currently imprisoned sex offender, your house would be listed on the registry as well, even though you're not a sex offender. This is genius.

What I don't get about the 100,000 missing sex offenders myth is that since that myth began somewhere around 2001, wouldn't there be a lot more missing sex offenders now? In 2001, there were a whole lot less sex offenders in the United States than there are at present , and as the US RSO population grows why wouldn't the missing number grow? Since most states exempted people released from prison prior to the registry's inception in 1995-96 (although the states almost always unconstitutionally retroactivated the registry somewhat so that you'd be forced to register if you were released from prison after the registry's inception even if you were convicted years before the registry), in 2001 there would have been only about 5 years worth of sex offenders in most states. Now there are slightly less than 20 years worth of registrants, so obviously there a lot more RSOs now. (And that's not to mention that states have greatly increased registration lengths and the number of crimes requiring registrations since 2001.) Since the media always acts like sex offenders keep getting worse and worse, why doesn't the missing sex offender total keep getting bigger? If there are consistently 100,000 missing offenders since 2001, that would mean that a higher percentage of sex offenders are becoming compliant every year, and therefore sex offenders are becoming better not worse.
