States are required to maintain sex offender registries and make them public. Is this a good policy?

There need to be serious reforms to the "sex offender" registry qualifications.

Rapists and sex traffickers and child abusers definitely deserve to be on a list, but not everyone on the current registry has committed such crimes.

Sex offences are too broadly defined for inclusion on these registry lists.

You may have the right to know if a convicted pedophile is living next door, but do you need to know if an 18-year-old had sex with a 16-year-old decades ago? Or if someone peed in public seven years ago?
