Tracy Velazquez, executive director of the Washington-based Justice Policy Institute and author of a report, The Pursuit of Safety: Sex Offender Policy in the United States, said If the purpose of all these new sex offender laws applied retroactively, (Unconstitutionally) is to continue to punish and effectively banish people after theyve done their time and paid their debt to society, then most of these new laws are pretty effective policy, she said. If they are to increase public safety, then banning registered sex offenders from whole cities, counties, churches and homeless shelters is counterproductive. It will make it harder for law enforcement to keep track of their whereabouts, and harder for them to meet their basic human needs, which in turn makes it harder for them to live successfully in the community. She and others said research shows theres no link between where sex offenders live and whether they commit new crimes.
Continually creating, funding, promoting and upholding laws which serve no purpose in making society more safe, banish the offender to a life of homelesness and starvation, ostracize the offender's children and family and cost the tax payers millions of dollars.
