I have signed it. Sad to see how few people have done that. You might also try sharing it with the Women Against Registry & RSOL groups. They are making every effort to change laws & get people with this label a chance to regain a life after serving their sentence.

Even as the soon to be wife of a sex offender, I disagree with total abolishment of the registry. I think they drastically need to change the registry so that only the highest level offenders or those deemed to be high risk via assessment show up on it, but it does have a place.

I agree with you Revenwyn, but I think the worst part of the registry is what it says to the victims. That sexual assault is the worst thing that can happen to you. That there is not the same urgency to protect you from murderers or drug dealers or drunk drivers as there is from sex offenders. The overall attitude from society about sex crimes is what makes recovery so difficult.

I looked at that petition; it was started years ago. Looks like little to nothing came of it. Or will come of it.

I notice a few of you are in CA. The "highest level offenders" in California - registry sometimes doesn't matter. After serving their prison term pedophiles often are committed by the courts to Coalinga State Hospital for "treatment". It's a hospital in name. Nicer than a prison. But prison nonetheless. If you go there it is unlikely you ever get released.

And with all that being said, this forum is for posting petitions, not discussing the merits of whether or not there should be a sex offender registry. If anyone wants to start a discussion on that, please do so in the proper forum.

I just signed and agree the whole thing is stupid. The SO laws that are supposed to "protect children" actually do nothing to accomplish this, only make it so difficult for sex offenders that they often re-offend in order to have a roof over their heads and food to eat
