    I wonder if we would have the same problem here Dingo. At least they are doing something about it in the US.

    I didnt say we were not doing anything, I dont even know if we have the same problem, I just said at least they were doing something about it, make sure you read the post before you criticise someone elses opinion. Why are always so negative, there is a saying if you cant say anything nice dont say anything at all.

    Non-registered offenders and what you can do to help.

    You all probably already know this but if not, it is important. Those convicted of juvenile sexual assault before national and state sex offender registry laws were put in place may not be listed at all and are often not required to be. If a pre-registry offender has not been caught in an offense since the law went into effect, their resident state likely does not require them to register at all based on an old offense.

    I don't have the statistics before me but based on personal knowledge, I'd speculate there are more non-registered offenders than registered. Many of these perverts have been successful by moving to a state other than where they offended and if they haven't been caught in the new residence, nobody is any the wiser.

    In the South, Georgia is particularly a haven for old offenders from surrounding states. This glitch in the law can only be changed if those of us who care complain to the right people. This is one of those issues it pays to find out about and then write and complain to your state rep and governor.

    Shazza, I don't think narla was criticizing your opinion at all. She only asked a question.

    I answered and then related my opinion.

    My very dearest Shazza,
    You did not say that nothing was being done where you are.
    Your post;

    It was a genuine inquiry Shaz- I thought you must have known what we aren't doing to say the US is at least doing something.

    Some people just cant help be negative and interpreting comments negatively, just because I say the US is doing something about a problem they are having it doesnt mean we are not, as I said I dont even know if we have the same problem, so the question you asked Narla was in my quote.

    My mistake, sorry I thought you knew something about the way our register works.
