A new look at truth and Justice for ALL.

Don’t make the mistake of falling into the bigotry, propaganda and lies put forth by any hatemonger groups that are attempting to make themselves look better or feel better by attacking a disfavored people. These groups always use myths, half-truths and lies and the result is that these bigoted groups siphon off much-needed funds from communities using such catchwords as “if it saves one child” or “community safety” when in fact laws rules and regulations based on these misconceptions are damaging children and doing nothing for community safety this one truth is supported by the literally many hundreds of articles, studies and evaluations that the bigots don’t want you to know about. Because if you were to find out the truth of how these people making money for their personal gain and diverting much-needed resources to satisfy their unjustified hatred and bigotry it would surely put an end to it.

A person who truly believes in the American spirit of truth and justice for all really needs to ask themselves this question. if you were publicly shamed for the rest of your life for a mistake or bad choice that you had already paid for, and that mistake was made years earlier and you had made strides to change your life. But because of that bad choice you were shamed daily and also denied places where you could live and work as well as access to public facilities that were paid for by you and your family’s tax dollars including the schools where your children go and hospitals were family members may be being treated. Or take your children to an amusement park or just a city park, a city library or denied access to a College. Would you consider that you and your family were being punished. The 14th amendment of the Constitution say that all people must be treated equally so if there were laws, rules and regulations put into effect limiting YOUR personal freedom and YOUR ability to find work and housing for you and your family would you consider it a violation of your constitutional rights. how would you feel about the politicians that put these laws into effect.

Myth; The registry is for everyone’s good and does no harm.

Now let’s get down to business: There are 850,000 Registered citizens in the United States I recognize that not every person of that 850,000 has a child but I also know from my own experience that many of them do have multiple children but for the sake of argument let’s say that each one of these people has at least one child of their own or stepchild or grandchild maybe a niece or nephew not to mention husbands, wives, parents, Brothers, sisters, aunts and uncles. That figures out to a lot of other people affected

At the present time studies have shown that the damage to this group of individuals is substantial and ongoing to give you an idea in a recent study done by Jill Levenson (the family impact study) it was found that 47% of Their children have been harassed 59% have been ridiculed by others 22% have been physically attacked 65% feel left out and lonely 77% suffer from depression 63% suffer from fear 73% suffer from anxiety 13% have suicidal tendencies and 80% have anger issues related to community notification.

I realize that these percentages don’t make a lot of sense And are thereby hard to see the real impact so let’s get down to the real numbers 399,400 children have been harassed 501,500 children have been ridiculed 187,000 children have been physically attacked 552,500 children feel left out and lonely 654,500 suffer from depression 535,500 suffer from fear 620,500 suffer from anxiety 110,500 children’s have suicidal tendencies and over 680,000 children have anger issues Related to their Situation caused by the registry when are the legislature is going to step forward and take responsibility for this amount of damage to children and this doesn’t even include all the other friends and family members that are also affected by the registry and community notification.

    Thank you for publishing this! A law is not a good law when the collateral damages are so high. These are hidden, silent damages that no one sees. And just because people are against these registries, doesn’t mean they “promote sex offenders”. It doesn’t mean they like what they did.

    The registry is an extreme. There needs to be open dialog and people on both ends need to reach a common ground in the middle, or the damages on the innocent people around the sex offender will be too great and irreversible.

    People who support registries need to ask themselves how they would feel if their son, or daughter, or any of their loved ones ended up on the registry for whatever reason. It’s not impossible. It could happen. Would they think “throwing away” their family member is the right thing to do? Or would they start to realize that there are better solutions than putting people on public lists? I would hope they would have the wisdom to choose the latter.

      Great article. Read the work of Tewksbury as well for the effects of collateral damage on family members.

    Exactly! And we wonder why we have bullying in our society?? Because our Gov,t just about gives the impression that it is OK when they themselves do the same when they oppress those for the rest of our lives.

    Let’s make one thing clear, I am aware that we have repeat offenders but the issue here is they make it so we are ALL in the same bag. We are NOT all repeats.
