See if you weren't a dishonest little cunt and this was your issue, then I'd call it a day. But you wield this as a cudgel as if it means something when in reality you're against any lists at all.
You're right, because even the best of these lists is still going to be ineffective at actually stopping anything. If these lists were so effective you would see numbers indicating a lower number of reoffenders, but we haven't seen that at all.
Is there currently a way to cure pedophelia and guarantee the convicted pedophile will never reoffend? No? Then fuck off.
So we should treat anybody that has ever done anything wrong as being evil because some people can't be helped? I suppose that we should just star executing people for drug related offenses so they don't start robbing peopkle for drug money. Or removing licenses for first time speeding offenses.
So let me get this straight... You would rather go out of the way to fine people for allowing children unsupervised where they might get molested than inconvenience convicted sex offenders? Blame the victim much?
Your presuming these sex offenders are going to drag kids off their front steps and rape them. Guilty of presuming guilt much? Besides, these lists and candy laws only serve to give people a false sense of saftey. The real way to prevent the sorts of random rapes you're worried about is ensuring that parents actually watch their kids.
You've conceded to at least 1 every 10 years per 120,000+ people.
That was assuming that every Halloween rape was due to kids being pulled in off of some sex offenders door step. Even if you only factor in that only 50% of sex offenders recommit and that these lists flag people that weren't a risk to being you're going to be down to 1 every 20 years that this law can even attempt to help. That is already such a low number that doing pretty much anything else would be able to get the same results. When you factor in trick or treating only takes say 8 hours of a day we've now only prevented 1 molestation in 60 years. When you start to factor in the fact that most molestations aren't people pulling kids in of their front steps this law gets even more absurdly useless.
Are you threatening to libel me? Anyway, seeing as how I'm not on any easily searchable online registry lists and will not have listed any convictions for sex crimes on my application...
Oh, so you do awknowledge that false accusations can be harmful and less easy to get away from than you've suggested thus far. Concession accepted.
