Due process is so archaic anyways.
Ohio has passed a bill that would allow a civil sex offender registry. What’s the difference than the original registry? Well I’m glad you asked.
The civil sex offender registry is new and improved that removes such fattening additives such as due process. See you can end up with your personal information being viewed by the public without a conviction of a crime or even any charges filed against you. All you need to do to place an alleged offender on the database is similar to obtaining a restraining order.
Interestingly enough this idea was proposed by a Roman Catholic Bishop.
Now I’m all for protecting children, but I don’t have kids so my thoughts lean towards the conclusion that this is friggin insane. Placing someone’s information to the public for a crime you may or may not have committed is ludicrous. This system can and will be ripe for abuse. I really can’t think of a counter point that would make me change my mind. Maybe, just maybe, if I had kids I might feel differently, but old folks like Mattbear could probably have a more reasoned, and more literate, view on this.
