This story is interesting. The Muncie, Ind., paper — along with a story about a sex-offender registry Web site — published mug shots and addresses of sex offenders and a bunch of the people lost their jobs and/or relationships. Here is a story about the reaction to the story. And here is the registry site itself.
I’m not sure what sex offenders are supposed to do and how they’re supposed to live their lives once they’ve done their time, but people should be able to see this kind of information. It is a similar problem for all ex-cons, but sex offenders must have it the worst. Are they supposed to form their own sex offender towns or something?
