Recidivism rates among convicted sex offenders is 1.5% to 2.3 %. Lower than any other crime. New Sex offenses happen not from convicted sex offenders, as the media would have you believe, but from someone close to the child. These laws, registration, stamps in passports etc. are unconstitutional. We either are all citizens, protected by the constitution, or we are not. And if not, then God help us. If we decide some people are not protected then who's next on this list? AND it has been proven that none of these laws actually work, reduce sex crimes, or change behavior. Numerous police depts. have said it causes them more work as they have to keep tabs on these people instead of investigating actual crimes. Instead they push offenders to the periphery of society costing society much more because they cannot work or find housing. It is time to change these laws, so that they protect society, not give false promises that have been proven to be useless.
