698 comments on the Federal SORNA Notice of Proposed Rule Making (NPRM)

Here are the comments posted on the Notice of Proposed Rule Making (NPRM) for changes to the United States Code of Federal Regulations. Changes that would increase federal requirements over and above state requirements.  There are over 698 comments posted to the Federal Government site so far.  Of the first 100 reviewed there were 99 opposed to the changes and 1 in favor of the changes.  You can read them here. Of the next 100 reviewed there were again 99 opposed and 1 in favor of the proposed changes to SORNA rules. It seems reasonable to believe that this 99%:1% will continue if all are reviewed.

It should be expected that the government would not implement a proposed rule making that has 99% opposition from 691 people. But this is the USA and I think that most people believe that the people have no voice and that it is likely that the government will totally disreguard the voice of the people. Time will tell.

Please keep an eye on this NPRM and also contact your own senators and representatives and voice your outrage over this NPRM. Ask them to support revoking the entire AWA and I-AWA. SORNA is part of the AWA. If the AWA is revoked then this NPRM will be without any foundation in law and must be revoked even if implemented.

I ask that everyone who made a comment, work to get 3 others and yourself to contact all of your senators and representatives in the United States Congress to demand the revocation of the AWA and IAWA. Ask them to review all of the comments to this NPRM. That would be more than 2000 people making their voices heard.

  • 00470047 by Admin October 9, 2020   Comment I have grave concerns with SORNA and the proposed rule changes. First, this proposal implies you are giving the Attorney General unlimited powers to alter the rules as he/she seems fit. No single government agent should have such control over a million US Citizens. Second, the proposal implies that recent court rulings that SORNA is punishment should be… (2)
  • 00540054 by Admin October 9, 2020   Comment To the reviewer, I have one more comment to add regarding the topic: Pursuant to Nevada's wrongful conviction statute, I believe they "accidentally" confirmed sex offender registration is punitive as follows: NRS 41.950  Award of damages and other relief. 1.  In an action brought pursuant to NRS 41.900 which results in the court entering a certificate of innocence pursuant to NRS… (2)
  • 00850085 by Admin October 9, 2020   Comment It is time to correct the misery and ongoing punishment of offendors caused by public shaming using the SORNA facility. The act not only punishesb theperpertrator but causes undue mental and finaciial hardships on families and victims alike. I believe what is called for is: Limited time on the registry that realistically reflects the eceptionally low recidivism rates… (2)
  • 01020102 by Admin October 9, 2020   Comment The sex offender registration is nothing more than extended punishment to those convicted. I Know for sure that not all that are convicted are guilty.

  • 04970497 by Admin October 9, 2020   Comment I am a licensed psychologist in the state of Maryland. I have concerns about the effectiveness of the sex offender registry. The thought process behind why the registry was created makes sense, to promote awareness in the community of a former convicted predator's location and to prevent future sex offenses from occurring. Although this sounds good in theory,… (2)
  • 04620462 by Admin October 9, 2020     Comment Perhaps early in the genesis of the registry it was truly intended to be a tool for the safety of the public, however now it has morphed into a behemoth of epic proportions with an appetite for destruction of the lives of registrants and subsequently their families and other loved ones. Plain and simple, the registry is… (2)
  • 00370037 by Admin October 9, 2020   Comment This is contrary to what some states (I am most familiar with Washington) that have not adopted SORNA because they have a better system, using actuarial risk assessments to determine notification levels.

  • 04830483 by Admin October 9, 2020   Comment The current practice of putting all offenders on the sex offender list is a life long punishment in itself .

  • 00040004 by Admin October 9, 2020     Comment Why expand a failed system? Very few states comply with these regulations, and the utility of the entire SORNA program has been proven to be unnecessary, draconian, and unconstitutional.

It is not fair to make people who got in trouble in 1984 or 1985 and did time in prison, then got out and completed their parole, and then had to be on the registry.
