quote of the day
There are many perpetual offenders of sexual crimes against children. Building a system to prevent such people from getting jobs dealing with children is necessary for the offenders, too. But creating a database and sharing information with the public will lead to excessive discrimination and exclusion. If an offender becomes isolated, the recidivism rate will increase.
