The sex offender registry does not work. It does do what it was intended to do and does more harm than good. Recidivisim rates among those required to register statistically among numerous studies is well below 8 percent showing new sex offenses are committed by those who have never committed sex offense prior not among those required to register. Therefore, it provides no public safety. Statistically those required to register do not commit further sex offenses. There should be shorter tiers with clearly defined means for offenders to be removed entirely from the requirement to register. There should be no lifetime registry requirement and the registry needs to be removed from public access. Offenders are targeted and the restrictions imposed by this make it next to impossible for them to live their life and to successfully reentry to regain being responsible, productive members of society.
