Families Affirming Community Safety (FACTS)

Ethical Treatment for All Youth

Human Rights Watch did a 2 year study on ‘sex offender’ Registry laws.   The results are rather shocking.  United States is quickly lowering itself to human rights abuse country such as North Korea and Iran.

Registrants and their families have been hounded from their homes, had rocks thrown through their home windows, and feces left on their front doorsteps. They have been assaulted, stabbed, and had their homes burned by neighbors or strangers who discovered their status as a previously convicted sex offender. At least four registrants have been targeted and killed (two in 2006 and two in 2005) by strangers who found their names and addresses through online registries.

So what is worse, having a ‘sex offender’ in your neighborhood, or having your neighborhood turn into a harbor of hate.

What if that ‘sex offender’ never even touched or hurt anyone?
