No they are a misleading feeling of safety, they do far more harm than good. There is over 20 years of research to prove this. Not all sex offenders are child rapist, or molesters, our sex offender laws need serious reform. They need to have laws based on facts, and research not on emotion. Only Tier 3 the most dangerous should be on a public list, and on a lifetime registration. Also residency laws should only pertain to the Tier 3 sexual predators.

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.
