Really Palm Beach Daily News? Is your shaming article necessary?
Wouldn’t you want someone convicted of an offense in the past to be doing better now? To have a profession, earn a license, become a productive member of their community? All your article does is seek to bring down a handful of people who are doing nothing other than trying to do their job and support their families.
Also, you COMPLETELY misapplied the recidivism statistics. The actual re-offense rates for people on the registry is in the single-digit percentage. Why not write a story called “could your real estate agent be a drug dealer” or “could your real estate agent be an armed robber” because both those crimes have much higher recidivism rates?
