The United States Government / Branding People as Sub Citizens
The National Public Sex Offender Registry, Sex Offender Registration Notification Act, (SORNA) and the Adam Walsh Act is counter productive to the safety of men, women and children in society.
Not only does the Public Sex Offender Registry banish all those upon the registry including their innocent children, but also it actually has been shown to create a heightened potential for recidivism among ex offenders who would be otherwise law abiding citizens.
THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF CRIMINAL DEFENSE LAWYERS SPEAKS ON THE ISSUES
A professional bar association founded in 1958, NACDL's more than 12, 800 direct members -- and 94 state, local, and international affiliate organizations with another 35, 000 members -- include private criminal defense lawyers, public defenders, active U.S. military defense counsel, law professors and judges committed to preserving fairness within America's criminal justice system.
II. NACDL opposes sex offender registration and public notification laws. If employed at all, sex offender registries should classify sex offenders on the basis of risk, with full due process of law. Public/community notification provisions should be reserved for “High Risk” sex offenders.
V. NACDL opposes residence restrictions because such laws and ordinances do not provide effective community protection and threaten offender stability and reintegration into society.
The recent wave of sex offender legislation is based upon emotion and myths about sex offenders which are not supported by valid research or evidence. Legislation in this area should be based upon facts and valid evidence. The NACDL encourages criminal defense lawyers, prosecutors and legislators to oppose legislation based upon myth and public emotion. In doing so we can ensure both public safety and due process.

PATTY WETTERLING SPEAKS TO THE ISSUES:
We need better answers.
We need to fund prevention programs that stop sexual violence before it happens.
We need to look at what can help those released from prison to succeed so that they don't victimize again -- and that probably means housing and jobs and treatment and community support.
Given that current laws are extremely popular, taking truly effective measures may exact a high political price.
But that's surely not too much to pay to prevent the kidnap, rape or murder of another child.
I am worried that we're focusing so much energy on naming and shaming convicted sex offenders that we're not doing as much as we should to protect our children from other real threats.
Many states make former offenders register for life, restrict where they can live, and make their details known to the public. And yet the evidence suggests these laws may do more harm than good. ...From her article, THE HARM IN SEX OFFENDER LAWS
Placing the name, age, address, crime, place of employment and many pieces of information on a Publicly accessible website creates a state of constant instability for the ex offenders and their families.
