MI: If it’s inaccurate, why have it?

August 28, 2020, 10:41 am

According to this article, a Michigan law enforcement officer said the public should be aware information on the Michigan Sex Offender Registry might not be up to date following an April U.S. District Court interim order barring officials from enforcing the sex offender registration act. “Basing something off of that website would be a mistake,” he said. “Concerned parents should teach children age-appropriate safety.”

So we learned that Michigan’s registry is inaccurate because it’s not being enforced… that begs a few questions:

  • Have the instances of child sexual abuse by people with former convictions spiked since the decision in Does v. Snyder?
  • If basing information off an inaccurate website would be “a mistake”, should Florida have the same warning, since there are 74 thousand people on their list with fewer than half actually in the community?
  • If teaching children age-appropriate safety is an effective way to reduce sexual assault, why are resources not applied in that direction instead of inaccurate registries?
