In support of the Adam Walsh Act and Sex Offender Management
We do not think we have seen anything quite like this before. Legislators have been successful in taking a minute problem and turning it into a monumental one. All they needed was media assistance and a very gullible public to accomplish their goals.
We could do a lot of good with $7.3 million, but it seems that nothing is more important than funding laws that do not work and were not need in the first place.
But is $7.3 million enough to fully fund the AWA or is it a carrot for lawmakers who cannot do the math?
This breaks down to (.0146).146 million per state? If you do straight math, which the government never does, $7,300,000 / 50= $146,000. This is not including, D.C. and all of the territories, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, Marianas Islands, Guam, Samoa.
