I have read several comments and I want to know what those of you who feel the sex offender laws do not work would you propose??? I have listened to multiple stories this year alone where childern are being grabbed in broad daylight small towns and cities. No where is safe any more and many times they find in the end that the perpetrator had previous offenses. I have been a victim of child rape. I am sure my dad wishes that jerk had been on some list somewhere so I would not have been in his path. Something needs to be done to protect the victims or would be victims. YES there is fear involved. I do not want my child to end up in a dumpster or dismembered. ANd I do not want my child to go through what I went through. I have little to no sympathy if an offender is homeless or out of work. Is my offender going to repair the damage done to me and my family? Is he going to give my back my childhood that he stole from me? Obviously many of you have no comprehension of what these crimes do to entire families for the rest of their lives. Why should any of us care? If a man or a woman commits a crime against a child or an adult they have given up their right to a normal life. They did not care that they have robbed their victim and their families of a normal life. I will aknowledge one point. If the sex is consensual and the child is in high school that is not an act of a predator. and should not be included. the age of consent is different in each state so that is even more unfair. in the state of kanas is 16 in missouri it is 17 and in florida 18 in alabama it is 16. There needs to be a way to track those who are truely a danger to others.
