"The registry should be taken offline and used by police only"
In your dreams buddy. You and your group are fighting tooth and nail to abolish the registry and WHY? Because at the end of the day most of you pervs couldn't qualify for removal, your crimes are considered heinous in the eyes of society and you warrant being watched like bugs under glass. We lived too long without a registry and society has demanded we not live without one again. Our right to know who has the propensity to tear our families world apart and brag about it later, outweighs your wish to be incognito.
No one is tougher on these guys than I am, but I have long held the belief that some offenders should have the right to petition OFF the registry. This is a good start and we have to HOPE judges uses discretion and good sense when it comes to this. In the public's eyes the confusion of the underge girlfriend with the blitz rapist had a devestating effect on the viability of the registry. Now, those who remain on the registry can't BS their neighbors that they just peed on a bush or had consentual sex. The integrity of the registry remains and its being a useful tool to inform the community who truly warrants diligent oversight is intact..
