This entire document — in fact, the entire sex offender registration system — is predicated on the false assumption that an individual who has previously committed a sex-based offense at some point in their history is more likely than others to commit a similar offense at some unspecified future time. This false assumption has been rebutted time and again by numerous scientific studies, including studies done by the federal Department of Justice, which show that sex offenders have one of the LOWEST rates of re-offense, yet politicians and law enforcement officers continue to ignore that empirical information in favor of measures that provide no measurable increase in public safety but are only a feel-good measure during election time. Politicians refuse to address these studies, dismissing anything that contradicts what their election speech teleprompters tell them to say. Until people are willing to address these factual issues in an even-handed manner, there will be no such thing as justice in America.
