Just one humble opinion:
Nothing about Nebraska’s laws regarding former sex offenders has anything to do with public safety. Nothing.
It is all about money.
The insane, weird web of laws and regulations that endlessly hammer former sex offenders and their families are so difficult to dismantle because too many people are making too much money now, and they will not easily let go of the golden goose.
Nebraska’s attorney general, who revels in “dropping a hammer” on former offenders while admitting the state’s public shaming website includes people who are NOT dangerous, became wealthy during his time in office. Who could give that up?
Think about the others who profit from the sex-offender industry:
- Law enforcement agencies that rake in grant money (your tax dollars) for conducting useless home invasions of former offenders,
- state corrections operations that need packed prison populations to justify their budget requests,
- manufacturers of ankle bracelets and other monitoring technology,
- online companies that operate like foul vultures, selling to a fearful public the information about you and your family that is on the State Patrol’s hit-list website.
