Once again politicians scare us about sex offenders while ignoring the reality that few registered offenders are a threat. So they pass feel good, totally useless laws that give people the false sense of security.

If they keep at it it will be totally impossible for a registered sex offender from living free and this is probably the point. Make is so damn difficult they will have to disobey the law and give us a reason to lock them back up. But will be safer? No.

Therapy works and registered sex offenders rarely re-offend. Those who committ sex acts against children almost always know their victim and have never been caught.

But the politicians like to scream fire in a crowded theater so we will vote for them.

They are a greater threat to our children.
