NY Times Looks at Why Registries Should Be Abolished

The New York Times takes another look at the massive mistake that is the sex-offender registry and its accompanying public-shaming websites, which do little other than to provide convenient roadmaps for vigilantes.

The story quotes William Buhl of Michigan, a former judge:

“The whole registry is a horrible mistake.”

Agreed. And the best way to correct the mistake? Just get rid of registries altogether. They do not protect the public: They create violence and they endanger children.

The Times story is here.
