Michigan: News Poll – should Michigan do away with the registry Mar 12, 2019 | 20 comments Vote here: https://www.wxyz.com/news/vote-should-michigan-do-away-with-the-sex-offender-registry Facebook Twitter Google+ 20 Comments Roger on March 14, 2019 at 4:14 pm What people don’t realize is that neighbors could have been able to watch over the occasion 1 or 2 sex offenders in a neighborhood. The law requires sex offenders to be 17 deep, all together making it difficult for neighbors to keep an eye on all of them. The sex offender used to live a block away from the school where parents could watch the property of the sex offender as they lined up the block 20 minutes before the kids are let out. The nearby children to the sex offender played at the park at school that is supervised. Now he is required to move far from the school and the watchful eyes of parents. There are no parents walking their kids to school in the sex offender’s new neighborhood. The kids have no safe park to retreat to. Instead they play in the parking lot where 17 sex offenders live. Some sex offenders can’t find homes to rent. No one wants to give a lease to the sex offender. So the sex offender hangs out in bars and spends the night with the single mom’s they meet at bars. Some states like Wisconsin restrict RSO from moving to a new city. They can only live in the city they caught the charge in. The logic is the sex offender MUST live in the city where he is familiar with the the children. In Florida kids are safer with sex offenders wandering the streets than if they were alone in a home. All this makes sense to lawmakers. Reply RegistrantNotAnOffender on March 13, 2019 at 4:46 am Its a silly poll because the discussion is not to eliminate the registry there but t o revise it.

Nobody likes to walk on others shoes until they or a loved one is forced to walk those shoes. Reply mark on March 12, 2019 at 7:32 pm How is it that a Legislature House holds more power than a Judge?

Fortunately, the decision won’t be decided by mob rule. “When you listen to fools, the mob rules.” -Ronnie James Dio Reply Capt Charles Munsey Jr. USN Ret on March 12, 2019 at 6:28 pm I gave them my ‘two cents worth’ for what it’s worth. The percentage of those still wanting the registry shows the degree of ignorance that still exist about it and the amount of time yet needed to educate the public. Reply DS on March 13, 2019 at 9:30 am Charles, I totally agree with you, it seems to me that we have a long ways to go to educate the public. Reply Rome on March 12, 2019 at 6:11 pm 30% against it is actually not bad. Showing times are changing. Very different from what it was three to five year ago. Facts are spreading slowly, but surely. Reply Jacob on March 13, 2019 at 11:29 am THIS is correct. And even more people would have been in favor of “keep it, but reform it,” had they been asked. Public awareness and attitudes have a long way to go but are far better than the hysteria of 3-10 years ago. Now if somebody in our state would just mount a primary challenge against Sen. Book… Reply DavidM on March 12, 2019 at 6:11 pm At least we now know how much work we have to do to educate the pubic . They are still being flambuuzeled by political scammers. Poor ignorant sobs. Reply Facts should matter on March 12, 2019 at 6:00 pm Cowards with children seem to be hammering it. Reply joseph on March 12, 2019 at 4:42 pm Very sad 74% percent want it still. I guess if they were on it they be singing a different tune too! Reply Nicholas Maietta on March 12, 2019 at 6:30 pm Well, those 74% should be then asked if they’d support a registry for murderers, drug dealers, gang members, etc. I wonder what they’d say. Reply DavidM on March 13, 2019 at 11:21 am I tried to get in to vote again, but couldn’t vote . Was just able to leave a message as to how I enjoyed the game, They view it as a game Reply Matt on March 12, 2019 at 7:34 pm Poll is skewed. You can vote as many times as you want. I’m sure people who are pro registry are doing just that. Spend 10 minutes and vote as many times as you can. Funny how they have no comment section. Reply Tired Old Man on March 12, 2019 at 8:19 pm you realize you can refresh the page and keep voting over and over again, like 1 vote for every day your on it 🙂 Reply obvious answers on March 13, 2019 at 1:17 am look at history..its always fun to watch lions RIP strangers apart, or to picnic with the smell of burning human flesh, or buy souvenirs and take the kiddos to watch a crucifixion…..as long as it’s not you its entertainment right?….Leading cause of death last year was the MURDER of human babies by dismembering and lethal injection…do you really expect a conscience from creatures that horrifically evil?..the behavior they are calling legal and screaming in support of makes the worst sex crime right now seem trivial news…really..humanity is something humanity doesn’t have.
