The database shouldn't change because of one act by a foreign nut job. In CA the best we can get is a block location.

I've actually seen in the CA database one child molester that was listed as living across from a public school and park. How that happened I have no idea.

One of the victims, Elliott, was convicted of having consentual sex with a girl less than a month away from the age of consent. He was 19 at the time. He was hardly a predator type. That is the problem with the registry in Maine, there is no way to differentiate between the real predators and those who, like Elliott, used poor judgment. There is no suggestion that he was considered an ongoing threat.

Common sense died when political correctness came into vogue. Can't have some sex offenders "profiled" as being worse now, can we????

There was a story reported here on FR about a senior citizen in IL who was going to have to be listed as a sex offender because he simply grabbed a girl by the arm. She rode into the street on her bicycle and laughed at him when he almost ran into her. He was so mad he got out and grabbed her arm to yell at her. This brat goes screaming to her parents who then had the man arrested and the state said he should be on the sex offender list. How absurd. So there is a chance that guys who are not rapists/abusers could be victimized.

I assume that most of those actually fearing vigilantism are on the offender list.

There would be no need for either vigilantes or sex offender lists if the Judges and the Legislatures would do their jobs and pass a habitual sex offender law.

Three strikes and its life, or by prisoner agreement: optional castration.

Says he was 28. I was mistaken, I thought he was older. In any case it is pretty scary to see how the law can victimize people who have not really committed a crime but somehow dangerous scumbags get treated very lightly in many cases.

And I assume that most of those actually supporting vigilantism are on the offender list.

If it has to do with a child (not a consensual teenager thing) then I think ONE time is enough.

That's acually what happened. He was 19, with a 17 year old girlfriend. Five years later he's still a registered sex offender.

In Massachusetts, if a guy got cited for relieving himself on the side of a road he had to register as a sex offender.

I'm not sure if they've closed that loophole yet.

Good point.

We've a new criminal name: "Sex Offender" and we hear, like on this thread, all sex offenders should be killed, when the label applies to flashers, people like Elliot and serial child-rapist murderers.

We should go back to the older method and label the criminal with the actual crime.

This didn't happen near Shelion. She lives up Caribou way.


The loon from Canada seems to have done us all a favor. The local papers haven't said why the older"victim" was on the list. It probably wouldn't look so good.

BAN THE LAPTOP! Or at least require a ten day waiting period and proof that you're not a sexual pervert or wish to kill a sexual pervert....
