Has anyone traveled to Europe since the new SO passports came out? I know england won’t allow any SOs but I’ve heard other countries such as Germany, Sweden and France is ok. Can anyone give some feedback on personal experience traveling?
Must be a slow news day….
Local news shills present one-sided police-state “facts” while omitting law enforcement entrapment and hosting of honeypot websites:
[Moderator’s note: the segment, “reports of online child sexual abuse have increased 52% in last three years, nonprofit says,” does not appear to have been reported by shills relying on police sources. It is also not, as the Commenter has pointed out, a segment about sting operations].

Great article. I would hope more SOA would agree to be interviewed.
Good article from NARSOL

Very powerful and sad article. Our legal system is a mess, I have no idea how we can repair it.

Federal court deals blow to ATF pistol brace rule ahead of gun accessory registration deadline
Gun rights groups argue ATF lacks the authority to force millions of gun owners to register their weapons equipped with stabilizing braces
Chris Pandolfo By Chris Pandolfo | Fox News
“Gun rights groups have argued in court that the stabilizing brace rule violates the Constitution by requiring millions of gun owners to register their weapons. The Firearms Policy Coalition (FPC), one of the plaintiffs in the case, has called the rule “onerous and unconstitutional.” FPC brought the case to the Fifth Circuit after appealing a lower-court order from a Texas judge who declined to block enforcement of the rule while the challenge proceeds through court. ”
Not expressing any specific opinion towards gun rights, but… wouldn’t registering a gun brace be no more onerous than signing up for “The Price Club”?
People don’t seem to realize how closely all our rights are tied together and eroding one groups rights WILL eventually cause a landslide for all other groups. We are right back to Thomas Paine.
“He that would make his own liberty secure, must guard even his enemy from oppression; for if he violates this duty, he establishes a precedent that will reach to himself.” -Thomas Paine
Wisconsin news looks like they won a court case where one conviction (cp) only equals one crime committed so it big for Wisconsin since they go from lifetime to 15 years
I am from Wisconsin so have been watching this case for a couple years now. I am really surprised it went this way. Small victories.
Arrested on a second charge of inappropriate relationship with a student, this teacher is still innocent until proven guilty on either of the two charges, right? It will probably be easier to prosecute him since his bail is now $875,000.

Since I am unloading here is a great example of our judicial system.
The judge that sentenced me had been having an affair with a Prosecuting attorney, had children by this attorney, denied they were his children. And all of this happened while he was married to another woman.
This bible thumping narcissist hypocrite was also the chief justice of the court until the attorney filed a lawsuit against him for child support and he still denied the children were his until he had to submit to a DNA test.
All of this came out in the local newspaper. When it was all said and done the worst that happened to the judge, well he was removed as chief justice but stayed on as a judge in the court.
When I wanted my attorney to get the judge to recuse himself my attorney said he would not do that, he did not want to piss off the rest of the judges.
Today this judge is retired from the bench and has a private law practice. And that’s the rest of the story.
I have add this to my above comments.
The former Judge who I wrote about is now part of my former attorneys legal team.
It’s not specifically talking about persons on the registry, but The Guardian has reported on Florida’s prosecution of voters, the questionable and confusing registration process, and the intimidation this causes for all voters. I feel this deeply, and I’ve been too frightened to vote since DeSantis began this witch hunt, even though my adjudication was withheld. The end result of these arrests is disenfranchisement by fear and intimidation. https://amp.theguardian.com/us-news/2023/may/19/florida-voter-registration-voter-fraud-formerly-incarcerated
[Note: Your Moderator, while aiming to remain non-partisan, notes that the Governor has publicly taken credit for voting-related arrests].
That is a great read, so true. I have always been amazed, that despite all the research, we have politictions who need to maintain and further their careers on the backs of those on the registry.
The addresses of sexual predators are supposed to be verified four time a year. The addresses of sex offenders are supposed to be verified only TWO times per year. In Volusia County, they check ALL registered persons, including offenders, FOUR times a year.
For the offenders who should only be verified twice a year, how is that not harassment?
It’s the same in Polk. Gravy Jugg says the additional checks keep people safe [eye roll].
I live in Michigan. I check in once a year and I can’t remember the last time a state police officer came to my house.
VOCAL is very interested in what is occurring in Michigan due to the ongoing litigation. If you could email us at [email protected] and update us as to what is going on in Michigan along with the city or county you live in, it would be greatly appreciated.
We will be posting updates and you can follow those updates at vocalhome.blogspot.com.
Following is Michigan ACLU’s litigation update page:
FAC Contributer #12:
Thanks for posting this. We are referring everyone to the Michigan ACLU update.
We have had several people telling us that they haven’t registered for years in Michigan and that the police aren’t bothering them [Moderator’s note: All who are required by law are urged to register. Anyone who feels they have failed to comply with the law must consult an attorney rather than share this information on a public forum]. We are actually preparing an article on this and need accurate information for our article. We need people on the registry in Michigan to email us their experiences and county or city at [email protected], so we can pass along accurate information in our article. We are hoping to complete and post this article sometime in June.
What’s going down in Michigan is exciting because it could eventually lead to bringing down Michigan’s registry in it’s entirety. We are trying to accurately report on this and how registrants are affected by the registry in Michigan and need their input.
It was only during the stay home order in 2020 when people were excused from registering, and it was for only just shy of a year. This was due to Judge Cleland, who handled our Does III case, issuing a TRO due to most registry offices being closed to the public. On the day the governor issued the stay home order, we were released from work early and it was my month to verify so I went to do it but was turned away at the door. This was before Cleland issued his order. If anyone in Michigan is not verifying, its not because of that order, which was lifted quite a while ago, its probably because the police are just being lax. There was a registered person 3 houses down from me who died in April 2022, and the website has him listed as non compliant for failing to register and the police have never been to his door to investigate. The house, which my landlady also owns, is now being rented to a new tenant.
I’m following Does IV very closely, so if you’d like any info I can share, I’ll be happy to assist. I’m in Oakland County.
VOCAL has been involved in Michigan’s registry from day one. Hal Nemechek was one of the first people to be put on Michigan’s registry in 1995. He tried to get meetings going in Battle Creek, but could never get more than one or two people to participate. Hal has since died.
Fred Farnsworth was placed on the registry in 2008 for a 1965 conviction. Fred has been involved with VOCAL since about 1990 and had a lot of organizing experience. He was meeting with a small group in Detroit until he died about 8 years ago, so the Detroit group is no longer meeting.
A group started meeting north of Detroit called Michigan Citizens for Justice, but that ladies son died and they haven’t had meetings in years. MCFJ continues to hold monthly meetings in Kalamazoo and Ann Arbor.
VOCAL was meeting in northern Michigan about 20 years ago but didn’t get enough interest and that effort died out. We are trying to restart the northern Michigan group somewhere between Traverse City and Alpena. We will probably be meeting in Gaylord. We will know more when we meet next winter. We are teaming up with the group that runs michsorna.blogspot.com. Their goal is to abolish the Michigan registry.
I thought we addressed the statute of limitations
Here’s to the hope that these charges are dismissed.
This terrifies me. My adjudication was withheld, so I think I can legally vote? I’m registered, but with these crackdowns I’m too scared to cast a ballot. It would be really nice to know for sure.
I was also adjudication withheld. I have voted regularly for 25 years. The withheld means that you are not convicted.
Thank you so much! I tend to be very fearful and overly cautious. At the same time, I can’t say I completely trust law enforcement officers to ask questions first and arrest later. I assume they can tell that my adjudication was withheld…but you know what they say about assuming.
Another registrant caught up in the political game.
Glad to see the paper with held judgment on the registrant past and only really focused on the issue at hand. Also 10 years for failure to register I wonder if they gave him a chance to get into compliance? Yea right. Glad to also see he is getting free legal representation and hopefully one day we will all be allowed to vote.
Many of you all in Florida should look at this little win as a comfort type rest to many. An opportunity to rid the sex registry in many ways. So is biblical Justice the same as American Justice.
Type that in your browser and you will find a wealth of information to combat this also type in Standforfreedom.com as this registry isn’t doing anyone true justice in many measures.
Everyone’s ordeal is different yet authorities demean those in many unjust ways. Cherokee this is a challenge for you and many on the registry. FAC take not and also sound off to the other affiliate’s that are fighting for this end to the registry no matter what state you are in.
Nothing with a bit of Christianity in the mix.
Am I mistaken, I thought Val Parkworst was deceased? I left a comment about Ron Book being elected to the Tulane Law HOF, and got a response from said person.
Not seeing any responses to that comment.
Her comment says “that’s what sex offenders continually gripe about “
Can you link to or show us her comment…not seeing it
Did you receive the link I sent?
I did not personally receive a link, could you post
Donald Trump was just found guilty of sexual battery. Does that mean he has to register as a sex offender bring he lives in Florida? And if so, how can he travel freely on his campaigns?
[Moderator’s note: He was found liable in a civil trial].
It was a civil case, not criminal. So it doesn’t mean that he has to register.
OK, so the registry doesn’t apply?
No. It’s a civil case. It’s what’s rich people do to keep from going to Prison. Poor people don’t get sued civilly. We get prosecuted and go to prison. That lady just wanted his money anyway.
[Moderated]. We need to boycott any and all business that support the registry as well as our representatives who support tier 1 registration in Florida or any other state.
What happened to my reply to this post?
If you said something positive about Trump, it was probably censored. I’ve noticed whenever I say something negative about democrats on the ASCOL site, it doesn’t get published, yet posts slamming Trump are allowed in. Not sure if that’s the case here too, but if it is, it shouldn’t be that way. If people are allowed to disparage one political party, people should be allowed to disparage the other as well.
Not accusing FAC of anything, just giving my opinion while following the TOS guidelines.
No I didn’t say anything positive about trump
I’ve been a tier 1 from New Jersey since it started. I’m a New Jersey Megans Law, retroactive, B52, Tier Level 1 who was forced on the the Public Registry. I’ve been fighting with Lee County for years that they are not allowed to be making my conviction public record. I’ve been screamed at by Sgt. Booth. When I told her I had a court judgement that was granted to me by the Supreme Court that says your not allowed to make my conviction public record she flipped out on me. She screamed ” Listen here, my Supreme Court ruled my laws Constitutional and my Supreme Court over rules your Supreme Court. I will punish you to the fullest extent of my laws an if you don’t like it MOVE OUT OF MY STATE!!!” If you know, you know. I was convicted before 10/31/94 NJ State AND 9/13/94 Federal. If Congress is prohibited from creating Expose Facto how can FDLE enforce it Expose Facto? I’m one of the first who have an actual tier 1 civil judgement that was reduced from a low 2 to a Level 1 by the court. I’m one of the original 52 who challenged the prosecutor an had a reduced tier by the court.
Wonder if they will be charged
Ron Book was elected to the Tulane law HOF.
I’ve got gotten three registry scam calls today from this number.
813-365-7964. Just FYI.
Warning re: voting that’s now on the re-registration receipt (that you’re told to sign for). Sorry I don’t remember where this concern was first posted on FAC. However, here is the exact wording of the warning (in red):
‘Please be advised that as a registered sexual offender/sexual predator you may be ineligible to vote based on your criminal conviction. If you are ineligible to vote, and attempt to register to vote, or register and vote, you may be subject to arrest and prosecution for violation of 104.011, 104.15 F.S., etc. If you are unsure whether you are eligible to register to vote, or vote, you should consult with an attorney and seek legal guidance.’
So, nothing that we don’t already know.
As of current, if you only had one felony case and are not on probation or parole and had adjudication withheld, you can vote. If not, you have to write the clemency board and request for your civil rights to be stored. However, don’t take my world for it. Things can change very fast. Contact one the professional lawyers that FAC recommends and they will be able to guide you.
[Moderator’s note: The Florida Constitution states, “No person convicted of murder or a felony sexual offense shall be qualified to vote until restoration of civil rights”].
Imagine creating a government that is so big and incompetent that it cannot tell a person if he/she will be arrested and thrown into a prison if they simply want to exercise their right to vote. Imagine an incompetent government so big that it cannot interpret its own laws for the people they “serve” and tells them to hire a professional interpretter instead.
Good Day FAC
I am writing concerning the comment introduced by commentator #12.
What was asked for is very important but it is off topic as it came in under The call to action concerning LB’s amendment’s..
What was asked for is important and I think it should be a call to action on it’s own. It is getting muddy under all the comments on the other call to action.
We have all been in a charged up call to action. And for me a bit more clarity concerning this request is needed, it opens a whole new can of worms for me and others I am sure. As the freedom to travel is so important to so many of us.
Thanks again for all FAC does.
This is no complaint but a need to just put things in a proper perspective.
Maybe if we all regularly contributed money to FAC, and FAC made regular campaign contributions to Florida’s Republican legislators and donations to stuff like Lauren’s Kids, the legislature might ease up on us some. As stupid as that sounds, they might become more interested in us keeping our jobs and income. JK?????
FAC is a 501c4 non-profit organization and cannot donate to candidates.
Individual members remain free to donate to the candidates of their choice.
Yeah, I was just being silly. But when I thought about how, ironically, it might actually make a difference, paying cash for our god-given and constitutionally secured freedoms, I started laughing to myself, kind of dreadfully. Thanks to FAC for accommodating our occasional rants! I’m making another $100 donation today.
Going to throw this out there for comments. On probation, they can search your person,residence and vehicle. OK, You are required to stay within your residence during curfew. What I am getting at is residence and property are 2 different things. So, they search non attached sheds? Do you think that is a no no? What if you put up no trespassing signs. They will say it is implied that they can access your property. But it would be a funny argument. Was watching a Steve Letho YouTube video got me to thinking about it.
So all this is ones government in ACTION. How oppressing can it get. Power goes to many heads in government circles. Sure many can come up with a conclusion to all this abuse after ones debt is paid but the old phase is you can’t fight city hall but you can take the bull by the horn.
Many of you all on here as well as other Advocacy sites seem to post of current events of some police authority getting his or herself in a sexual type situation but the fact still is the same. Sure we are all disgruntled about this registry. Maybe we all should go back to Egypt and see how they oppressed them back in that time. or understand the book of Daniel a bit more before we make a conclusion about this government branding.
Seems like man wants to solve his or her own dilemma with his or her own understanding. Is it governments own design to instill evil and entice another in this carnal battle, ask questions latter.or who is bowing down to who.
If you plead guilty I’m talk to the judge and DA and everything will be alright. Sound familiar Talk about undercover authority abuse before and after the process is overs. I’m sure government plays this ruse all over the nation because we can. Authority was not set up to promote evil with enticements of some sting operations so in many ways they are yielding up their God gifted authority in this abuse in many ways.
Remember truth matters.
https://www.pnj.com/story/news/crime/2023/04/21/pensacola-sex-offender-richard-heighton-gets-20-year-sentence/70138979007/ 20 years for failure to register granted it’s not is first volition but 20 years for a civil statute and the original charge was from ‘84. When does it end?
I admit that I haven’t read his court documents, but 20 years in state prison is not possible for two counts of failure to register in Florida. Even if sentenced consecutively, the maximum punishment would be ten years (5 years for each third-degree felony). The only time failure to register is a second-degree felony (punishable by up to 15 years in state prison) involves failing to correct reported out-of-state travel plans that change once initially reported, so there must have been more charges other than just failure to register. It would take four counts of failure to register, sentenced consecutively, to add up to 20 years.
The 5th amendment and sex offender “reporting”. Has anyone tried to challenge having to give information to the police as a 5th amendment civil rights violation?
I suppose this could be part of the ex post facto challenge. If a judge ordered the registration then maybe it would be required. But if the offense was before 1997 how are registrants required to provide information that may be used against themselves?
Excuse the sarcasm.
Shot a 6 year old girl in the face for retrieving a ball that rolled onto his lawn. He had recently moved there.
None of the neighbors needed to know what this guy was charged with and that he illegally had firearms… only 4 months out from being charged with a violent crime. At least the community unnecessarily
knows where non-violent sex criminals whose offenses were committed many years ago live.
“Singletary was charged in December with assault and kidnapping for allegedly attacking his girlfriend with a mini-sledgehammer and keeping her inside his apartment for over two hours, police said in a statement.”
Update on our lawsuit against the FL registry (re-posted from last fall):
Our original complaint may be found here:
UN International Committee of Jurists (ICJ), UNAIDS and the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) REPORT
The news article made the move to decriminalize sex offenses and concentrate on prevention and rehabilitation over onerous criminal sentences sound like they are in favor of sex with minors and other unsavory offenses. When instead the UN is simply calling for fact based laws, not emotional, vote pandering draconian laws.
Maybe so letters to the editor to explain would be in order…
Do you have an old failure to register conviction? Go to the link below to file a motion to have it removed. This FTR conviction would have to have happened before 2021.
Here is the link to the 6.500 motions that registrants can file if they are challenging an old failure to register conviction. Tim, you can share this with registrants who ask about vacating FTR convictions under the old statute.
A new motion filed to add out of State convicted Registrants’ who have now moved to Michigan and have been reclassified by MSP! Read below.
Greetings. As we explained in our last update, the case is now in “discovery” where both sides are able to get information from the other side in order to prove their case. During the discovery process, we uncovered information that led to the decision to add an additional claim to the current case.
In late March 2023, we filed a motion seeking to add this claim, which focuses on people with out-of-state convictions who are subject to registration under SORA 2021. Specifically, we argue that registrants with non-Michigan convictions are subject to harsher registration requirements than in-staters, and that they receive no notice or opportunity to be heard in violation of their due process and equal protection rights.
In addition to this claim, we also asked the court to certify a non-Michigan offense subclass that requested relief specific to this class. This class would consist of those of you within the class who are required to register under SORA 2021 based on a conviction or adjudication you received outside of Michigan. The Court has not yet ruled on these motions, but we will keep you posted when they do.
If you are interested in reading more about this new claim or proposed subclass or just want to stay updated on the class action, please remember to check out the Does III v. Whitmer website for the latest updates in the case.
Thank you all for your patience.
Registry fails again:
My husband and I are thinking of moving to Pennsylvania for a job opportunity for me. Does anyone happen to have any experiences there as an SO or know anyone that does who would be willing to chat with me? Not that I think anywhere can be worse than FL at this point but the grass isn’t always greener and I’m hoping to get some ideas on how my husband might be affected.
Contact our PA affiliate, PARSOL
My experience hasn’t been too bad here in PA. I have to register twice a year, no appointment needed. Just walk into the local PSP office and they update you in no time. No residence restrictions. Since getting off probation in 2021, They have only done a verification once and they showed up in an unmarked SUV and were dressed very casually and were very nice. No restrictions on where you can go, be it a store, movie theater, park or school. Basically if you follow the rules, you won’t have a problem.
I came across this article https://www.tallahassee.com/story/news/politics/2023/04/12/florida-lawmakers-insults-of-transgender-people-could-fuel-lawsuits/70104275007/
“ Should the bill become law, those remarks give fuel to potential legal challenges against it, two legal experts told the USA TODAY Network – Florida. His stated bias against transgender people could become evidence of a concept known as unconstitutional animus, or the idea “that it’s fundamentally in conflict with our democratic norms to use the law to disadvantage a discrete group of people,” said lawyer Susannah Pollvogt, who authored a paper about the concept.”
Has anyone heard of http://fordhamlawreview.org/wp-content/uploads/assets/pdfs/Vol_81/Pollvogt_November.pdf being used in our defense. You have politicians openly joking about how they want to punish us.
MI Court of Appeals: Lifetime Registration Not Cruel & Unusual
“the grave nature of sex offenses … justifies lifetime monitoring.”
Once again the “frightening and high” myth is holding sanity and reason hostage.
They are equating the crime’s severity to lifetime registry being acceptable. That is the first time I have heard or recall that being used by a court in justifying the registry. That is Old Testament at its finest. Crazy. Where does murder come into play? Should a murderer not be a lifetime prisoner? There is a counterargument for those who are punished long term on the registry in the tiering schedule using the court’s argument to downgrade their punishment but I’ll save that for another day.
Looks like a site ran your article

Came across this link that looks up registrants by county. Could be useful if you need to do a mail-in campaign.
Don’t know what transparency they want it’s pretty plain that it’s punishment nothing more.
If you ever forget that you are a registrant, someone will be sure to remind you.
At the bottom of this article 22-864
Whether the 14th Amendment’s due process clause entitles juvenile sex offenders to hearings at which courts have discretion to lift statutorily mandated sex-offender-registration obligations
Looks like they have appealed to supreme court HOPEFULLY they decide to hear the case. The could be a huge first step.

Miami New Times: Sex-Crime Victims’ Advocate, Attorney Accused of Amassing Lewd Child Photos
Good thing they don’t let registered sex offenders on cruise ships.
ML posts an incredible report worthy of FAC publication.
Haven’t the cruise lines spent the last several years cracking down on sex offenders? Hasn’t that been the subject of hundreds of comments posted on this site?
The sex offender registry failed the cruise lines!
I just wanted to let everyone know I found out I’m on a gov watch list, and also I’ve been BLACK LISTED by wal mart and more and it’s spreading. I’m surprised I got to this site. this isn’t a hoax. write me I’ll get back to you.
Oh, please explain.
Thought it was ironic as the Georgia probation officer who oversaw the s.o. caseload who also faced the same charge.
This story linked by Eugene Debs is incredible.
I realize we try to avoid linking to individual cases, but this is different. A CSA survivors’ advocate?? One who has actively employed the legal system to harm registrants??
‘He has achieved multiple multi-million-dollar trial verdicts for his clients, as well as numerous settlements for survivors of sexual crimes, including child and adult victims, and adult survivors of child sexual abuse. Michael also played a pivotal role in helping to pass Florida’s 2010 legislation that repealed all statutes of limitation for civil and criminal prosecution of child sexual abuse…
‘Detectives said they discovered [him] actively downloading child sexual abuse material using peer-to-peer software.’
I believe comments are OPEN on this News4Jax article.
Why would a attorney who profits from suing people want to remove the time limit for which a profitable action can be taken? Oh, right…
On the topic of CSA, there absolutely should be justice for it. Many, many acts are deemed criminal because they are terrible and have potential to impact a person drastically, even adults. It is generally made worse when the victim is a child.
I was emotionally and psychologically abused as a child. Do I not deserve justice?
Do the many children who are/were physically abused not deserve the same justice as one who was inappropriately touched?
I would argue that all forms of child abuse (some which are unfortunately legal), can be equally as detrimental and harmful. Yet, legislators and internet-extremists have a laser-focus fixation on ONLY the sexual form. Why is that?
Physical abuse is probably the easiest to detect, why don’t we see physical abuse registries? Is it rooted in religion and puritanism?
This fixation often reminds me of the outspoken, loud, Bible-thumping anti-gay folks that are often discovered to be hiding their own “demons” (as they see it). “Me thinks he doth protest too much” is a quip that stuck around for a good reason. When someone seems unhinged or overly fixated in their pursuit against a thing, I immediately suspect them of that thing, and it more often than not turns out to be true.
They go thru all trouble to pass these laws or they could simply give us our rights back like all former felons but no.
““This is really an information management issue.”
Actually it’s not. This is just confirmation of what we suspected all along. We’re not even considered valid humans to the masses, but just things to be made political scapegoats out of for easy votes from the ignorant, hate-filled public.
It’s all part of their “final solution” Nazi playbook.

Can anyone please tell me if the law about travel within the country has changed for florida registered people? I went to register with the Hillsborough County sheriffs office and the new form needs to know our flight numbers, where we will be staying even if it’s not at the same address for more than 3 days, when we will return and other news items!! I was shocked to say the least because I travel a lot and never tell them when I’m going because I never stay at the same hotel longer than 2 days. Never mind flight numbers! This sounds like a complete violation of our constitutional rights to freely travel.
Please is anyone can tell me when the law changed because I’m scared to travel now and I just can’t travel spontaneously anymore like my wife and I do quite frequently.
Hillsborough-based travelers who are situated similarly to Brian Alan might take some solace in FAC’s communication with another county on this issue.
There has been no change in law. Also, FDLE answered one part of Brian’s question:
and FAC made sure all sheriffs had this:
This has been going on for awhile:
Thank you very much!!
Any word on the volusia paperwork? I was the one who brought it and its still being used. I e been told i need to report the flight details. I tell them im on standby they tell me i need the flight details. When i drive they want the plate numbers and where id stay on the road. They tell me i need to report the hotel. It takes me two days to drive to ny they tell me its included in the trip reporting.
We are looking into it.

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:

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 !
Shasha I have about given up on all this registry jazz. NARSOL, ACSOL and many of the others advocates fighting for this justice. Sure all of this is like a man walking a tight rope. If actions speak louder than words than who’s doing the action. Takes two to tango remember.
Warning someone is good. Taking matters in one’s own hands depends on the situation or who compromises to save a life. Say your neighbors house was burning down. You knew they were a sex offender living right beside you….. thanks to good old laws of justice. Would you save that sex offender, his or her kids or just let them burn.
Must of this registry advocacy is like a pep talk rally to either charge one up or to get some Action. There is a right action for ever circumstance in life. You talk about behavior. We all have our behaviors from the gun ho type of person to the one that out things another and does it their way.
Hey I’m glad I’m a nobody a sex offender or whatever you want to call me but when authority take the lead who is leading in this registry bait trap? I guess the the person that calls the last call for alcohol. In many of these sex registry case its all about a higher Supreme authority than law enforcement. So who’s breaking the Commandment laws?
There’s good and bad in law enforcement and as far as behavior anyone can change even many on the registry. Don’t even bother to post this as I know you probably won’t but have a nice day.
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
