As the report indicated, there was no evidence that any former offenders used their passports to commit new crimes.
I am more concerned about sex offender hysteria and the politicians who use it to manipulate voters.
Abbie, I have one question: What is the purpose of this particular report?
The offender currently has child support debt of about ,000 and owed child support at the time the passport was issued. If they didn't, they woudl not be driving around grabbing our children. citizen state-issued identification, then there's really very little "ethical" argument to be made. Generally speaking, your country should not be able to deny you exit or entry.As one of the SO's listed in the article and in the case study I can honestly say that my trips were for legitimate business travel, so I need a passport for my employment.SO's returning to the country face tougher scrutiny than most and although not a pleasant experience I do understand the need for it.Majority of our trouble adults are troubled due to sercumstances in their childhood that were preventable but not prevented.I say we buy an island and put them all on there and let them rape each other or we could reopen alcatraz to sex offenders.There is also a 4yr old little girl that was raped by a man that was out on bond for a previous molestation.I'm sorry but these individuals are sick if they can find pleasure in a child there is nothing we can do to change that. ) if you are attracted to men then you are attracted to me if you are attracted to women you are attracted to women and unfotunatedly and as sick as it is if you are attracted to kids then you are attracted to kids and you have something wrong in your head, you never fully grew up and never will you need to be lock away and have the keys put into a locked box and dropped into the deapest part of the ocean!For years, we have been monitoring the fallout from the development of the sex offender registry, as well as recidivism statistics for registered sex offenders.In fact, the likelihood of a registered sex offender from committing a sex crime overseas is actually less than that of someone not on any registry. Sex offenders = high ratings, particularly when presented in an alarmist manner (disguised as an "unbiased GAO report.").Otherwise, you are leaving out a lot of pertinent information that otherwise would make the issuance of passports to sex offenders a complete non-issue.I am Eric Knight, media liaison for the Sex Offender Solutions and Education Network.
