Michigan must rewrite its sex offender registry law

After the U.S. Supreme Court declined to review the 6th Circuit Court’s decision in Does v. Snyder, the state of Michigan will have to redo its sex offender registry laws. Pity the poor Michigan

legislators.

Sen. Rick Jones, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said he’ll invite the ACLU, state police and prosecutors to discuss the next steps. 

“We’ll work together to bring (Michigan) into compliance,” he said. “What we’ve done is what a majority of Michiganders want. They want children to be protected from sex offenders.

Sen. Jones should know that unconstitutional laws, like Michigan’s sex offender registry, do nothing to protect children, or anyone.
