I am ashamed to say that I am an American citizen as I watch my government persecute a class of citizens know as Sex Offenders! Your laws are draconian and unconstitutional. The Doe v. Smith ruling stating that registration is civil and not punitive is just insane. Is it punitive to be put on a public shaming site like the registry? Yes. Is it punitive to be barred from gaining professional licences? Yes. Is it punitive to not register your car and be charged with a felony? Yes! I could go on but the list is too long.There are approx one million people on the registry and if you take into consideration families impacted by this draconian scheme the numbers rise to multi millions. The rate of reoffence for registered citizens is less that 5%. The lowest of all felons excluding murderers. The registry protects no one. It just ruins lives.
Stop this insanity now! Do not enact these new punishments!
Mr. Barr. Take a good look in the mirror and ask yourself. What would Jesus do? Do you think you are above him? Think about it!
