“Is the sex offender registry where sex offenders sign up for gifts?”

There is a very big difference between a bridal registry and a sex offender registry. “Is the sex offender registry where sex offenders sign up for gifts?” was posted on Twitter on May 23, 2010. “I can’t believe there’s a sex offender registry. Who’s buying gifts for these people?” was posted on Twitter by Tom Harrington on May 7, 2017.


Wikipedia: Sex offender registry
A sex offender registry is a system in various countries designed to allow government authorities to keep track of and activities of sex offenders including those who have completed their criminal sentences. In some jurisdictions, where sex offender registration can, registration is accompanied by residential address notification requirements. In many jurisdictions, registered sex offenders are subject to additional restrictions, including on housing. Those on parole or probation may be subject to restrictions that do not apply to other parolees or probationers. Sometimes, these include (or have been proposed to include) restrictions on being in the presence of underage persons (under the age of majority), living in proximity to a school or day care center, owning toys or items targeted towards children, or using the Internet. Sex offender registries exist in many English-speaking countries, including Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United States, Trinidad and Tobago, Jamaica, South Africa, the United Kingdom, Israel and the Republic of Ireland. Sex offender registration does not exist outside of the English-speaking world, however. The United States is the only country with a registry that is publicly accessible; all other countries in the English-speaking world have sex offender registries only accessible by law enforcement.

When you sign up for a sex offender registry, you get great gifts from all the sex offenders in your area.

I’m opposed to the sex offender registry. We shouldn’t be giving these people gifts.
