My daughter was murdered by an unregistered sex offender from another state. He was arrested 27 times here. How did the police miss this?
What do you think they missed? If the police kept arresting him then it sounds like they were doing their job and kept a close eye on him.
Unregistered and from another state. That means that the offender had not been reporting in the previous state to register. So, that state would not know of his whereabouts. Then he came to TN, and I'm assuming he didn't register here either. So, the offender technically would not have been on the TN SOR. Nonetheless, I believe your question is, with being arrested that many times in TN, how did law enforcement here in TN never realize that he was an unregistered sex offender. Well, I agree that they should have made that realization at some point. They should have been able to notice that he was a sex offender who was previously registered, still should be, but wasn't. However, it sounds to me, from the limited info you have given above, that they never made that realization. Why? Can't be sure. Perhaps they never ran his ID'ing info through the entire system (that would include other states and registries) and only ran his name through TN systems and databases. There are a lot of entities at work simultaneously in the law enforcement sector. Though it seems they would have there systems and programs streamlined to the point that there is easy, clear, and direct communication amongst different jurisdictions. However, that is not the case. Police mess up. They miss things. They are humans.
