Great read and so unfortunately true. Shameful and disgraceful behavior.

I keep saying on here that this whole sex registry thing is wrong. Now if shelters won’t take the sex offender but all others than we know there stance on God and we should make it public. God is no respecter of person’s, even judges, councilman, or people who run shelters and those officials that make up these human suffering law’s. I am so glad God loves the sex offender that made a mistake. I wonder if He love’s society if they make a mistake or the Supreme Court or those others that murder or rob others.
Seek the word of God before you seek the word of man because man doesn’t really care about the sex offender.

My father is a sixty-eight year old registered sex offender with dementia and it is very difficult looking for any (apartment, convalescent home, etc.) type of place for him. He can’t come home seeing as we live by a school and a library. He can barely walk, let alone do any harm to another person, yet he is still denied better care.

This story is very upsetting. I agree God is forgiving and we as a people should be as well especially since it is well known that SO are less likely to reoffend then others. I believe it is time shelter were provided for SO’s, I now the government will not do so but maybe it is time that some of the organizations that support rehabilitation need to get together and do something. her in Colorado Springs it is well documented that 67% of the SO’s released have no where to go so they live on the streets.

Mary, there are law’s that are against discrimination today. There are cover-ups and it seems the law is taking full advantage of the Sex offender that may or may not had a real victim. Sure they classify them as SVP’s but who can know the hearts of people. There are many sex offenders in Governments. Now I don’t want to touch on gay’s but if you get the picture. Its a bias situation Same with females. This is a perverse nation. While the sex offender is treated like the common leaper in society. Governments with there scare tactic’s have done there best to compound these efforts. Human humanity doesn’t extend to the sex offender because of these law’s and how they go about scaring the public at large. Governments need to understand that sexually and perversion have been on this earth since the dawn of time.
I can see how this would make anyone upset when they are discrimination and hold a bias to the sex offender that might of just been caught up an all this madness.

Why don’t we put together a petition for specific reform to congress and post it on change.org. I don’t have experience with petitions, so maybe someone else can help out. Then we can all sign it.

This year we have had a long, horrific winter in the Northeast. Our local shelter refuses entry to registered offenders. Thirty five homeless died on our county streets last year. The number of those thirty five who were offenders is unknown. It’s criminal what our society is doing. The registry laws and local ordinances are extreme, abusive and need to be changed. A well reasoned and rational approach is needed to address the issues of sexual misconduct.

It’s a cold and saddening fact, that this all came about, from John Walsh, and his hatred for SO’s and for what was committed to his son. AND all this is the trickle down effect of his hatred. Society, has built up so much distaste for RSO’s over watching AMW and John Walsh, that they then get on their soapbox, and continue his fight. AND it is my belief that society, makes these rule’s aka Law’s. To continue the punishment, and harassment of RSO’s so that 1. they break the weak willed RSO’s down to the point they take their own life. And I can hear society now saying OH WELL, one less SRO we have to worry about touching our kids. ( to put it nicely) 2. They make it so hard for the RSO that they have no choice but to go back to prison just to survive or die on the street.
This why, it will be a long hard road, BUT, we need to become as one and stand up and say enough is enough Thanks for reading and stay strong and keep the faith

Sorry, as a after thought, I was reading something here in Pa. and how the courts say that, this new law is not punitive damage, and it has to effect the law, to be punitive.
Well, my argument is this and this is food for thought people, and start asking this to the lawmakers. OK, you say this new LAW is not punishment, yet you call it a LAW, and if we dont follow it we break the law, and get punished. AND the state police here in Pennsylvania have a called the Megan’s Law Section that over see’s RSO’s.. So how can you say it is not punitive damage, when you call it a law and there are punishments.
If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck its a duck.

No victims, just a one time look-see online out of simple curiosity, and suddenly your name is LEGION. You’ve never hurt anyone, never tried to get it on with anyone whose a minor, never tried to make an assignation online. But now you are a SEX OFFENDER! The most despicable species on the planet. You serve a 97 months prison term, in danger of being offed by murderers or drug dealers, crimes considered more respectable by your fellow inmates–and society itself, apparently. After all, the badly flawed 1987 child porn law says that if you have ever been curious enough to go to a sting site online, you are actually a vicious, dangerous predator, who must be hounded all the way to an ignominious grave. You’re actually just like a Jew in Nazi Germany, and kristalnacht has just happened. PEOPLE!!! IT IS ALL HAPPENING AGAIN!! AND IT DOESN”T EVEN REQUIRE A DEMENTED FUHRER! JUST A DEMENTED POPULATION!
