Here's an interesting article: FOXNews.com - Sex Offenders Try to Block Laws Allowing Them to Be ID'd Online - Local News | News Articles | National News | US News Sex offenders guilty of minor offenses in the US are trying to block a law that would allow them to be ID'd online publicly. They claim that they shouldn't be listed with the worst of the worst in a "one size fits all" list of all sex offenders. After all, it will be harder for them to get jobs etc with such a note on their record.. What do you think? I think if you have a sex offense on your record it's in the public's best interest to know who you are. They should have thought about this before committing such crimes. I think employers, neighborhoods, etc have the right to know if they are hiring or living near somebody with sex offenses on their record. This is not considered a punishment for the criminals, but instead a fair heads up to everybody they will be coming in contact with. I think the public has the right to know such things. I do however think that in cases of no evidence, those people should not be classified under this system unless they plead guilty. Thoughts?
