Christopher Dawson, a 22-year-old, is a registered sex offender prohibited from speaking to anyone under the age of 18. When he was 19, he had what he says is a consensual sexual relationship with a 14-year-old. He believed she was older.

This is pretty much bullshiat. Get the kid off the registry and let him lead a normal life for he did nothing that not a single one of us wouldn't do. I mean seriously who the fark thinks about carding people before sex?

FTA: "But we're moving on, and this is a country of second and third chances for people who make mistakes."

Dude, you live near a modern leper colony of carefully controlled untouchables who will never be forgiven, or treated as normal citizens, for the rest of their lives. Hell, they'll only be at this commune until someone manages to drive them off to another county.

For the coaches who diddled students or the guy who diddled his own kids, I have little sympathy. But for the people TFA references who are there for indecent exposure or sex with a girlfriend, it seems a bit heavy.

To be fair, 99% of the sex offender registry is bullshiat.  The only people we should be removing from society are those who are a danger to others, and if they're a danger to others, they should be in prison.  Forcing people to live 100 miles from civilization is just cruel and unusual punishment, but we have yet to have it successfully challenged.

Although they can travel pretty much anywhere during the day, at night they must be at an address that complies with the residency restrictions.

So they can go wherever all day but they are required to own or rent a home in a secluded out of the way area...

hard h2o: PunGent: hard h2o: I have a 14yo daughter. If some 18 or 19 yo dude came sniffing around I would not allow it.

That guy is not just someone drunk caught pissing in an alley with an indecent exposure conviction. He is not an 18yo with a 17yo gf. He belongs on that registry.

My sympathies, trying to raise a kid, but ten bucks says you'll be the LAST to know when she's dating.

You are probably right. She is a straight A student. Very smart but a bit sneaky. She knows how I feel about dating at too early of an age. She knows how I feel about academics coming first.

If some predator did anything to my girl or my young son i fear what I might do. They would not need to bother with the sex offender list. No ITG here. I have just read enough stories about what these predators do to get me really riled up.


I've got nieces of my own, so I hear you...but remember that case few years back?  young daughter accuses neighbor, dad beats up neighbor, turns out daughter made the whole thing up?

Everyone thinks THEIR kids are above-average...mathematically speaking, many of them are wrong...

hard h2o: I know that girls these days look older than their years but if you can't tell that a girl is 14 then you need to be branded a pedophile. I would guess he knew something was fishy but didn't want to ask and ruin a good thing. I would give him 16 or 17 but not 14.

He "knew her for a year and dated her for a few months" how do things like schools and friends not come up?


I started dating a 22 year old when I was 15.  I told him I was 17 so he knew I was in high school.  When I was 17 I dated a 20 year old who I told I was 18 and a senior in high school (which was half true).  I got busted when I asked him to buy me cigarettes.  There were a few brief 20 somethings in there too.  When you're in high school there aren't going to be much differences between the years in terms of details told to the guys unless he's really asking a lot of questions about classes or college which never really came up.  Also, they both knew I was under age and it didn't stop them from having sex with me anyway.  The one guy was a little pissed, but he still had sex with me afterwards.

In case anyone is wondering, yah I feel bad about lying to them now.  However, my parents never knew and frankly I'm not sure how much they would have cared.  They certainly never would have pressed charges.

We should be more like these guys:

Put all the pervs in ghettos like these:
cdnstatic-1.mydestination.com

And then have the Army storm the place, executing all of them and their relatives. Difference is, the roles of "good guys" and "bad guys" are reversed.

Is there a homicide registry?  Or can homicide convicts serve their prison terms and come back to society and live wherever they want?

hard h2o: h8sloplay: Agree that the vast majority of sex offenders on the list don't need to be there.  We waste milions of dollars managing this list.  Even Adam Walsh, who was the main push behind it, says it has gotten out of control.  I would rather take that money and only monitor the true risks and worry about the criminals that rob, steal and go through the revolving door of our jails only to commit more crimes. How about let's spend the money on mental health issues.  Problem is that no politician will vote to modify the registry for fear that they would be deemed soft on the issue and it would be used against them come re-election.  First thing a freshman senator or representative is told to do is introduce a bill against sex offenders.  Everyone will vote for it and it teaches them how the process works.  This doesn't even cover the big money that tether companies line the pockets of the politicians with to get these laws passed.
We are out of control as a country and big money has taken the driver's seat.

If they are in the federal prison system then I imagine that they did something much worse than flash some jogger.



You would be wrong.  Federal prison doesn't mean something super bad any more than calling someone a 'felon' has any meaning anymore.  It can simply mean that your apprehension and prosecution was from a federal agency instead of local, county, or state.  There are a lot of fingers in the money pie for this.

This. Putting people like this in the same category as the Sanduskys of the world is beyond asinine. Not to mention that relative age should be taken into account, too.

But, frankly, I oppose the government keeping these registries at all because they are too easy to abuse. Think of people like that Virgina nut Cuccinelli having the power to put people on sex offender registries.
