By Sandy . . . Those in the know have always said that eye-witness testimony is the least reliable of all evidence. The same is true, I am convinced,

Very true. Most of us go in, honestly, with preconceptions and biases. I know I have. It’s a very passionate subject, and while I do try to be open minded, I have failed at times. About all we can do is try and recognize it when we do and apologize for it, and try to do better. Having said that, I apologize anyone that my jumping the gun affected.
I am grateful to the existance of NARSOL and all their efforts. In the end, we are on the same side even if we don’t always see/hear things the same.

Each exploit the issues. Just us, rather than justice. The FIRST was errected where? The obvious USES for political security in Administrative conservatism disguised as national security. Take a view of Kirsten Gillibrand NSA CHEIF in subcommittee testimony broadcasted by cspan Oct 15.
I doubt the sex sadist is related to national security in any way.
I’m sad to say another amber alert Issued in Wisconsin today. Only time will tell if a registered person is involved. My guess is not. She may have killed her parents herself. The press seems to leave out that possibility and so far only post it as an alert.

Anyone who is passionate about their beliefs will occasionally cross this line. It is the human emotion that sometimes gets in our ears and eyes and keeps us from the truth. I catch myself doing this occasionally as well. I am as passionate about politics as I am about ending this hell. Good point Sandy!

Sorry to go off-topic, but this needs attention.
Here is a perfect example of how the registry fails to protect children. A man who IS NOT a registrant was caught fondling a little girl in a hurricane shelter during Hurricane Micheal!. This is proof-positive the registry is a TOTAL waste and failure.
Of course this can be used against us. Someone will surely point and say “See! Being in a crowd will not deter a child molester from acting on his predatory urges!” What they will conveniently ignore is that this man didn’t raise any of the flags the presence of a registrant would. If registrants were allowed into shelters they’d be supervised very closely. They might be kept in one area of the shelter.

The good and bad of everything is a conception of the mind and how the ear or eye justifies the input. I could say the polygraph test I took today was bad when they ask me a question do I masterbate. So whats good about government today than. Are they just a bunch of tricky dicky aregont snobs.
We all have our good days and bad, While NARSOL present good articles and is separate from registry matters one should listen to the podcast with open “EARS” and understand that this is not about politics but it seems that when one is caught up in this sexual type abuse scandle that that are some issues that borderline on a bit of the political arena. This whole thing is about Justice and fair and true justice for all. Maybe we should talk about polygraph tests and soe of the crazy things they can bring up with a yes or no answer or does everyone lie today.
So whats good and what’s bad can only be precieved by the hearer. Is it good to drink alcohol before taking such a test or popping pills. Authorities are not sensible, about the only sinsible thing is the money and they couldn’t care one less about trying to mess with someones mind to trap one up. I believe I commented to that podcast and and I couldn’t believe that some said it seems NARSOL is getting a bit into political matters. Hey whatever it takes to wake up some of these politicians I’m all for it. As far as the podcast goes it is seperate from NARSOL but it does have its points I’m sure.

My polygragher always asks how I felt about how I did on the test I learned that it’s his most important question. If I express doubt, he follows that trail even if I do ok. Now, I just say that felt I did ok. This questioning at the end always makes me doubt myself . I think this is the intent.

how about this: the registries are made by white people, FOR white people, and it’s the white people who consider their children most precious and check the registry the most often. I never heard of a black or hispanic person spearheading a vigilante campaign to oust a sex offender from their neighborhood. An angry white woman who is well off with money and kids are my worst nightmare, and I’m a white man saying this.

I don’t completely disagree with you. The current S.O. and registry laws were made for white people as a means to keep the prison industry going strong. Such measures aren’t necessary to keep those of color locked up. A simple marijuana possession charge will get a Black man 10 years in some states. People of color already make up 65% percent of the prison population, yet they are less than 20% of the national population when we combine both Black and Latino. Every time someone goes prison, someone else gets richer, and that is why the registry laws are designed to be very difficult to stay in compliance with.
Now where I disagree with you. I assure you that most people of color consider their children most precious too, and would do anything for them. And, I am well aware of plenty of white people who are abusive and neglectful parents. Please don’t buy into the false narratives and stereotypes about people of color. They are completely false.

I’m saying they THINK their kids are more important. I couldn’t see a black child being the face of the registry such as little Meghan Khanka(who was raped and murdered by Jesse Temendequas…a repeat molester) How about little Jessica Lunsford, or precious rich girl, Pamela Smart…. Oh JonBenet? yea, and how about good ole Lauren Book?

With the exception of #8, these are all things that I have heard from FDLE. During the Lunsford case, Mark Lunsford stated #8, which caught on in Florida, even though child porn was found on his computer
1. If it saves just 1 child it is ALL worth it
2.it is a matter of public record
3.The public has a right to know.
4.What if YOU had a kid?
5.Children are our most precious resources.
6.I would want to know if a sex offender lived next to me
7.It’s only a matter of time before they reoffend
8.The only good sex offender is a dead sex offender
9.No lawmaker wants to appear soft on sex offenders(even though they know it’s b.s.)
10.Our office has no sympathy for sex offenders.
