Reply To: OK City PD fuels hate and vigilantism against out-of-compliance registrants


Screen shot that FB page and the posts. Send them in to attorneys who have pending or on-going litigation challenging the constitutionality of the registry. This is evidence of how the public registry and how registrants are portrayed by law enforcement combine to truly meet every legal definition of cruel and unusual punishment under the 8th Amendment. Judge Matsch got it exactly right when he ruled the CO registry unconstitutional on 8th Amendment grounds.

The oral arguments in the State’s appeal of Judge Matsch’s ruling were made at the 10th Circuit a good while back and yet no ruling has been issued. Why is the court just letting this case languish for so long without disposition?
