As anyone ever heard of this kind of hogwash? These "sex offender" registration laws came to be through a one-size-fits-all mentality of punishing the "group" for the "sins" of some individuals.
The registry is constitutionally suspect and far worse than a mere "scarlet letter A" or Nazi Germany Star-of-David Jewish armband or badge. The Supreme Court has no liberals. They posture like they simply have to carry out the will of the Congress.
Raich showed the mythos of federalism being their guiding principal as well. Except for Lawrence v. Texas, Gays would also be on the Sex Offender Registration list, now.
But in fairness to the court, they do have limited political capital. The religious right went ballistic re Lawrence and Pat Robertson led an assault on the court as "activist judges". Even President Bush joined in, although there is no similar ferver over the president using "signing statements", which as activism-intruding-onto-congressional-turf, amounts to the same thing.
The "sex offender" registry laws were largely brought into play using the controlled media and the "Big Lie" technique. Claims that the average offender had molested some hundred children before being caught were insisted as true.
Justice department grants sometimes ended up paying for campaigning for these laws. Video records of meetings on the topic show participants usually giddy and often show them with their upper lips curled up and with other displays of obvious sexual arousal as they discussed what they planned for "sex offenders", suggesting the mania of punishing "sex offenders" itself, to be an actual fetish.

Wonder where Alberto Gonzales really spends his time? When not involved in promoting the fetish of torture or the death penalty, it is in pursuing and punishing people re sex.
He undertook his mission when Senator Sam Brownback challenged Gonzales, during the AG's confirmation hearings, to join together with Brownback and their wives to attack sex and pornography.
He reminds us that President Bush has said that anyone who takes the "innocence of a child will be punished to the full extent of the law. MSNBC seems to have a particular fetish for this. A specific example is where Dan Abrams had California legislators on his show and he repeatedly demanded that the lawmakers pledge to change the laws so that family members that committed any sexual transgression against one another, receive life imprisonment.
Records show frequent erroneous assertions by lawmakers that "sex offenders" "have no rights" once an "offense" has been committed. This was a blantant declaration of "open season" on people whose entire humanity had been reduced to a single label.
Claims were made that not a single person on the registry had ever been harassed or intimidated by anyone.Megan's Law was proposed within days of the murder of Megan Kanka and signed into law on Oct.
