Article quotes FAC extensively. Must publish!
RI ACLU Win: 1,000’ SORR ruled unconstitutionally vague
I wish the ACLU would take another crack at the Florida living restriction ordinance. 300 feet seem to somehow be ok in this decision but not a 1,000?
Here our state (Florida) asks for a 1,000 foot which R.I. Ruled it created to big of an exclusion zone the same amount of feet we have. I know our state size greatly engulfs R.I. However in many countries you have zoning restrictions to 2,500 feet. Can we not make the same claim?
But this is encouraging news and hopefully a judge or two here in Florida takes note of this ruling.
I agree with the idea of Federal judges not having their personal info on the internet— but so should those with no risk to re-offend:
Stanford University employee arrested and charged after multiple phony campus rape claims
Since FAC has changed things around a bit, I’m not sure where to post this. So, please excuse.me if I Fd up but this is worth sharing because the registry failed to work again:
Child respiratory therapist accused of molesting kids caught in ‘disguise’ at Florida airport
This was a disgusting act and while looking at various comments in other areas, many people are supporting this man.
I thank the moderators for the posting.
Here is a link to the NEWS in regards to the incident and almost in support of the vigilante actions taken while warning the public that registered offenders cannot stop their behaviors and people must move out of their neighborhoods if a child register moves in the area.(we will see how that goes)
Such terrible untruths and misinformation being told to the public while ignoring the rule of law set to prevent things like this. This guy went to the victim’s house and killed him. The victim’s offense was in the late 70s and he did his time. The victim was in his 70s. How does one stalk a 22 month old? and what occurred between this time? Lastly, the NEWS reporter and guest are coming to the conclusion that the person who killed the PFR will likely get off or get a reduced sentence because it was a crime of “passion” and the police “failed him” so he had to take matters into his own hands to protect his child. Not when there were so many other choices that could have been made.
It seems that it is okay to do these things as long as it is to someone who is forced to register. This is another reason why the registry should be abolished. It did not protect the public, in fact a person died, a child is now without a father and many people are affected by this action.
What is even more sickening are the comments in the comment section on YouTube about this incident justifying this and wanting more of this done.
Take care all !
I’m sure her lawyers could argue the definition of “rape”. But going by how old her victim is she could be eligible for the death penalty if her case was in Florida if the new proposal is passed https://www.crimeonline.com/2023/03/08/elementary-school-teacher-of-the-year-sexually-assaults-child-under-the-age-14-police/
crazy how harsh this rule will be.
But again how did the registry help
New Mexico is on the verge of passing a law to specifically establish the crime of bestiality (SB 215). The local NARSOL affilliate objected to the inclusion of a requirement that a conviction for this crime would require sex offender registration. All references to the registry were removed from the amended bill that passed the Senate on Monday. HB 128, the chemical castration bill, appears to be stalled in the House. The legislative session ends at noon on March 18.
Normalizing Registries: Sen. Book Proposes Animal Abuser Registry
Far less onerous. It is not lifetime. In Florida only, registrant can just cross state lines and be done with it. Will they get other states to get on board? Maybe.
Violations are a misdemeanors (although that his how Florida SOR started too.)
Funny how she does not advocate for drunk driving registries.
News Sharing and Want To See More are great new site features. TY FAC IT volunteers!
Dirty politics at it again. Apparently the Governors brother in law in Oregon got in trouble then the Governor didn’t like the results.
Salem, Massachusetts (not Salem, Oregon).
There was no “Deval Patrick, Governor of Oregon”; Deval Patrick was the Governor of Massachusetts. Salem News is headquartered in Danvers, MA. (Fine print, bottom of webpage.)
The WAR vigil in Washington DC is going well. Yesterday many of us went to talk to lawmakers on capitol hill. Today, we will hold a mock funeral on the steps of the supreme court to commemorate 20 years since Smith v Doe.
We heard talks from many informed speakers.
This conference has been a sound success!
Thank you for the updates
I am glad that so many decided to carry on with this. I thought once ACSOL dropped out that was the end of it. Glad to see that was not the case. My guess and hope is now that it has been done and shown to have gone well, that this might happen again.
I liked the story/report on City of Gainesville, Fl changing the the 2500 foot rule to 1000 feet. I can’t find a property to buy because it always to close to live near a child-related facility (i.e. church, daycare,etc). Why doesn’t the State of Floriday change it to all cities? Dan Sinclair
Has anyone ever challenged residency laws based on the fact that they is a clear violation Article 1 Section 2 (Basic rights) of the Florida Constitution. All US Citizens living in Florida have a constitutional right to acquire, possess and protect property.
And now it is also a clear violation of newly passed FS70.002 (Property Owner Bill of Rights). , This statute add the protection of the right use and enjoy property too. Sheriff’s visits…Floridians now have this new statute which also gives them the right to exclude others from their property, so why not flex that right too!
You are right but than would be a target to the local police department lol. Kind of a catch 22 there
