Bizarre law-enforcement campaigns that leverage sex-offender hysteria are embarrassing and they demonstrate the unreliability of registries.
When you decide to put everyone and their cousin on the registry and shame them, you might just shame yourself, like they did in Marion County, Indiana. The Marion County Sheriff’s Office, U.S. Marshals and Crime Stoppers cooked up a scheme to put registered citizens on digital billboards.
Turns out they were alerting people to some dead registered citizens. Hope you Hoosiers feel safer now.
