Sex offender “target list”

by @ 12:30 pm. Filed under Crime & Justice

Those of you that have known me for awhile knew I predicted this.

Maine’s online sex offender registry was taken down after two people listed on it — Joseph L. Gray, 57, and William Elliott, 24 — were shot and killed over the weekend. The suspect, Stephen Marshall of Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, died Sunday on a bus entering Boston after shooting himself.

Maine officials say Marshall looked up the victims on the state’s online sex offender registry.

I knew it was just a matter of time before someone used the registry as a wanted list and took revenge for themselves.

When are we going to stop putting scarlet letters on these people?

    I’m really conflicted on this myself. Its a tough issue.
    I think the rights of the offender are important… however, time and again, they have re-offended, with tragic results. I think the best solution would be to not have the information out on a website that anyone could look up on a whim, but to instead have the information available “upon request”. Like, if you want a copy of an accident report or something. Then, authorities would have a record of who wanted the information, etc.
    I dont know. Like I said, its a tough issue, and not one to be easily resolved. *shrug* Life.
