You appear to be a very kind and caring person. Please verify your statement that sex offenders are more prone to repeat their offenses. I think you will find that this is a completely false statement. If you investigate you will also learn that only about 10% of those on the registry are actually considered dangerous. I agree that the registry may serve a purpose but not in its current state. It is overloaded with people who should not be there because they are not violent or dangerous. In its current state, the registry drains taxpayer resources without providing the safety it was intended to provide. If law enforcement were allowed to focus on the 7,000 possibly dangerous people in Texas and not the nearly 70,000 on the current registry, we would all be more safe. Yes, the others committed a crime and should be punished, but, unless they fall into that small group of offenders who may continue to pose a threat, they should not be burdened with a scarlett letter for the rest of there lives. It serves no reasonable purpose.
