If you really want to save money, abolish the registry completely.

Too many of them profit from the registry

As a person familiar with the Illinois State Police registration system I found the process lengthy. Most of the information the Feds had from my state case in Wisconsin was available on other databases, so they already had it. The town’s female staff stood and gawked while one took pics n prints. I asked them why they were taking my hand prints in the old ink fashion when no crime had been done…I was merely reporting a part time job frying fish Friday night for the American legion women’s auxiliary. It was a low paid volunteering, a five hour gig. I live just across the border.
WOMEN’S AUXILIARY! said one of those there, a female but I did not see which one. Sure enough I should have kept my mouth shut because that added another 20 minutes while they called around to verify, as if I would lie.
So There I was the next night(Fri) frying Cod and Perch, shrimp n fries and in the door comes the local PD. Two cops stood at the table looking back at me realizing they should have used the backdoor. I approached them looking through a large service window in the front of the kitchen and told them politely that they had to place an order or get out of the way. As usual the place was packed. They bought it. I looked at the group of us servicing the crowd, five or six blue hairs and said see I am bringing in more customers already. They all Just bustin up laughing, LOUD! I said, ” You ladies take note, there’s a dangerous man in this kitchen. DANGEROUS! Then did my best Michael Jackson Dance.
Beware the database, it is not your friend!

Tim if the Gospel says all lie than all lie but I know where your coming from on that. My PO dropped by today and although we have a good relation he knows his position and I know mine and I will throw the good book at him any time. I even told him during this visit its coming down the pike that I might have to ask for a regress of grievance as I have five more yrs. from my 10 yr.
Why they took me out of this second sex offender class I’m sure is some type of underlying factor. Why they took me back to court when I said I was on face book to sign up to do phone campaigning for Donald trump I don’t know. Now if I was actually on face book talking to women or something I could understand. Believe I’m sure a lot were surprised when Donald Trump got elected President but some of us still have to wait and deal with all this in different states.

What positive changes are coming to Illinois and what is the status on the park ban.

Oh I’m in Virginia Nick but like I said on one post here. We all should write letters once a month to the President. I’m sure he will straighten things out soon with the help of the advocate’s like NARSOL and others as we all need to stand our ground and make solid points how this registry is making a witch hunt not only this but other things are being affected in this matter.
When one makes common sense out of all this it doesn’t seem right but it does hurt the family members that have to go thru this for there loved ones.

I bet this topic would have more comments if it weren’t for the Illinois draconian laws governing how registrants can use the internet.

The IL state police sex offender regime is so criminal as to send me a letter before I moved there in 2012 informing me I was not required to register in the state of IL..period! When I was in Bloomington, I encountered law enforcement, and since I had a slight attitude when questioned, the sex cop in charge, officer blank blank lied to my face and told me that since the law had changed and that I had to register. Since I basically refused he arrested me, confiscated my computers, and raped me of my civil rights. That’s because IL had the law written so vague, you could interpret it either way you wanted to. Turns out case was dismissed after thousands of dollars and over a year going back and forth to court. They are a true criminal regime!

one thing thats not right,,in one spot of the registry laws,it shows the crimes that fall under a 10yr registry,but,then further into the law it says that if your marked as a “predator” then you have to register for life.the state is titling everyone a “predator” to keep people on for life,,so,,how is that right or even fair.

There should at very least be a system on place that registrants can petition the state to be removed from the registry. A person who hasn’t reoffended in over 20 years isn’t a risk
