Re: “Drawing the line on sex offenders

Academics advise three things are needed for successful re-entry; a job, place to live and a "positive" support system. I think the communities are ignoring these facts and they are doing so based on fear mongering by the media.

Many law enforcement officers will say "off the record" they can't manage all the laws and restrictions they are expected to enforce with registrants. This reminds me of the cycle some corporate executives practice....they promise it, engineering is expected to produce it and the grunts are expected to put it in place, on time, and maintain it....sound about right?

Did anybody see the story on the news the last two days. There were three siblings, 10 year old boy, 8 year old girl and an 18 month old in a stroller at the playground....unsupervised no less. The babysitter was not there. A guy came along, took the baby out of the stroller and started running away. The other two kids started screaming and running after him. They got the attention of the adults and teens in the area. The teens joined in the chase. The guy put the toddler down and ran away......that is perfect. Now, do you think the now identified 15 year old was on any s*x offender registry...... That is the point train children what to do because 95% of the time it is not a person on the "tool" that is supposed to keep everyone safe.
