No limit to public notification, is there? NONE. You, or anyone can take that information and do what with it?
Avoid the person? Isolate him? Those would be the more benign ways the registry is used. But we all know how the registry is really used. It is used to harass, threaten, and put fear into offenders also.
The registry does not protect the community. What it does is puts stresses on people who very well may have mental issues with sexuality. So instead of treating those mental issues, the State has decided they will aggravate them by making a registrant a desperate outcast. Funny how you call that protection of the community.
But it isn't and none of you can show any.
That means, your registry is built upon a fiction. The prohibition on ex-post facto laws is invoked. That means if the registry is being used to enforce ex-post facto laws (like loitering or residency or banning from Facebook) that registry does NOT HAVE TO BE FOLLOWED AS A MATTER OF LAW.
You all have made the registry into a political tool. However, the registry violates the due process clause of the U.S. Constitution among many other basic laws.
Therefore, it is the RIGHT of an individual to flee that registry and do whatever they can to avoid your illegal registry.
Do you really think the Sheriff can use Facebook to post pictures of offenders and then force offenders to give up email addresses solely to banish them from Facebook?
Sorry. Your level systems, the way you label, the whole process is a caricacture of how a free country regulates a person they are asserting is dangerous.
Do you really think a person has to give all their information to the police who will take that information and use it in any way they want?
It is called, totalitarianism by definition. Totalitarianism has no credibility. Oh, and as long as you have this level system and registry system, you people really think you have built something credible. What world do you think you live in???? STUPID.
