Is Sex Offender Registration Unconstitutional

Recently there was a federally funded study in New Jersey to see the effectiveness of Megans Law. It was found that Megans Law did not prevent any new crimes from occuring and did not lower the recidivism rate. Heres an article http://www.courierpostonline.com/art…3/1047/opinion, heres another article that states the obvious http://www.nj.com/news/index.ssf/200…fails_t_1.html

Now we can go back and forth and throw the “Protect our children” chant, but the fact of the matter is that it has not protected children and in fact has destroyed lives of many who have tried to repair their lives of their mistake. Now I am not condoning the crimes because they are ugly in all reality, but the people that have committed these crimes, most have done their time, have served out their probation/parole. So why are they still subject to these “regulatory”, but in reality, punishments?

The public would rather feel like they have control over this because our legislators have empowered them into thinking that they can make a difference. Preventing an ex offender from rebuilding their life is asking for crimes to be committed again. The laws implemented are “feel good” laws hiding behind a regulatory mandate to thwart challenges, but the more laws you pile on, the more the truth of it all is seeping through. There are over 800,000 sex offenders on the registry in America today, that is enough votes to make a difference in this land our forefathers fought for. Trampling on civil rights and making unconstitutional laws is not going to protect your children.

There have been laws in OH, NM, GA, MA, ME, and so on in those states that have been amended because of the amount of law suits being generated because of these feel good laws. Its costing tax payers millions and millions of dollars just make you feel in your mind that you are safe. I dont care how much protocols you set, if a criminal has his mind set on committing on crimes, he is going to do it regardless. Now I can go on on on, but I would rather invite you to visit SexOffenderIssues.org, or www.sosen.org and get informed. Dont get emotional, just use common sense.

  1. CLIMB ON BOARD EVERYONE – THE TIME IS NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!
    It HAS begun and now the registry MUST GO!
    Here is you official chance to take your stand and take it down! 

    The WAR Admin Team AND our Class Action Core Team are proud to announce that we will begin work this week on two law suits to be filed at the federal level this fall. That’s right – two of them!

    The first is on behalf of registered sex offenders and the second on behalf of families and friends of registered sex offenders.

    The challenges will be against SORNA and the impact to the registrant families, which has been verified and documented by researchers. Also, the public impact will be defined in an upcoming survey being developed with the assistance of Professor Crysanthi Leon of the University of Delaware.

    Even though these laws were mandated at the Congressional level then enacted to varying degrees by the state legislatures, we will be asking the court to rule on “the law” thus removing the manner in which legislators have purported to keep children safe – punitive punishment for registrants and families. It is time to take the issue out of the state legislators hands and campaigns and place it firmly in front of the supreme courts.

    The concept of filing based on the collateral damage experienced by those who seek to provide positive support at re-entry and thereafter will gather steam and provide a more assertive approach than is being used today.

    Please consider this your invitation to visit our website where you will instantly see the announcement as well as the opportunity for participation. We have also listed some Frequently Asked Questions to help answer as many immediate questions as possible.
