Human Rights & Sex Offenders

On our next show, airing Monday, 1 October 2007, KUCI's Subversity show kicks off its fall 2007 season by focusing on a new report, No Easy Answers: Sex Offender Laws in the US, that recently was issued by Human Rights Watch.

We talk with the report's author, Sarah Tofte, who is a researcher with the U.S. program at Human Rights Watch. In her report, she assails "mistaken premises" that are prevalent about sex offenders and argues that we must rethink sex offender laws because the laws are counterproductive.

Last month, we aired a related program, an interview with Paul Shannon, who has started a campaign to reform sex offender laws.
