Everyone’s address that is posted on a Sex Offender Registry worries about vigilante vandalism, harassment, intimidation or attacks..... Now there is THIS possibility!
If he was targeted because he is listed on the Registry then this should count as a Hate Crime!
A crime against property or a person that is motivated by prejudice or intolerance toward an individual’s targets a victim because of his or her perceived membership in a certain social group including national origin, ethnicity, color, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, or disability, is a Hate Crime.

No public registries aren't punitive they are simply "administrative". We all know better! When will the lawmakers and the courts finally get it?
