If Albo cared about kids why doesn't he register drunk drivers and drug dealers, since they harm more kids than sex offenders do. I truthfully think albo is afraid to take on drunk drivers, not the type of person I would call a leader, just another follower.

A "child" of 13 is not responsible for their actions. If they were, they could also give informed consent. I'm wondering the heck the good Senator was thinking he would accomplish? Where would a 13 year old get redemption? He would be banned from further education in a public school, as a registered sex offender, for sure. And, if this 13 year old was so dysfunctional as to be pathological, then the child would be sent for mental health treatment. Have we no shame??

Sarah Williams writes:

We call children "children" because they are not yet adults, not yet responsible under the law. The current over-reaching legislature must not extend its anti-person legislation to include children in this abusive measure. A child being publicly registered as a sex offender is unthinkable. Where is our sense of responsibility as a society if we even consider stunting the life of an individual before that individual even reaches the age of consent or accountability under the law?
