VT to Quintuple Size of Internet Sex Registry

May 9, 2009

fox44.net : Lawmakers quintuple size of Internet sex registry.

Vermont lawmakers have passed a bill quintupling the size of the state’s Internet sex offender registry. The action Saturday,moves Vermont closer but still not into full compliance with a 2006 federal law designed to make responses to sex crimes more uniform around the country.

Many may believe that this bill would make communities safer, but expanding these registries to a wider range of offenses actually make enforcement and vigilance less effective, not more so. We have discussed this many times and posted evidence of this fact elsewhere in this blog.
