But, is this stuff being used to trap men that would never harm a fly? Those in office need to stop adding names to the SOR and figure out that anyone who has not committed a sex crime with 10 to 15 years is of no risk anymore to anyone. HOW LEGISLATORS AND MEDIA DESTROYED THE ILLINOIS SEX OFFENDER REGISTRY I am on the sex offender registry for having a consensual relationship with my now wife, in 1998. There is an answer to the question ",why cant the police watch these guys and prevent future horrors."?
Senate Bill 2824 would ban registered sex offenders from forest preserves, conservation areas and public parks.
Craig A., a registered sex offender who asked that his full name not be used to protect his employment, says he was forced to register as a sex offender after downloading inappropriate photographs of underage girls.
Craig, who is a musician and sports enthusiast, says he could no longer perform concerts at public grandstands or play tennis at public parks if the bill passes, and it would instead remove the support network that keeps many offenders from reoffending.“Therapy ordered by probation teaches us to get involved in things like park district leagues to create a support group of friends and give us more positive things in our lives,” he says.
There are thousands and thousands of consensual,statutory cases on the sex offender registry in each state, Plus juvenille cases(19 year olds with 15 year olds) ,public nudity,exposure,prostitution,indecent behavior,public peeing etc.
There simply are not enough police to monitor all these cases.
