My questions are related to this area of discussion. What do you do if you have contacted the ACLU in your state and they don’t give you the time of day, even when you hold documentation in your hand that can show the new amendments to the law are being applied wrongfully to yourself and would likely mean to others? What do you do when you have contacted a supposed advocate Attorney for Sex Offenders rights in your state that has made it into legislation for imprisoned Sex Offender rights and has her name in some of the court cases on this site but when you tell her the evidence that you have in your hand over the phone she tells you that it doesn’t sound right (obviously but it happened), she never calls you back? What do you do when you have no money or understanding of how to file a civil claim against a stacked system that continues to label you and relabel you at its own discretion?
Frustration sets in, no hope becomes familiar, and even when reading about positive things that happen or new organizations that develop for the supposed purpose to spread the word do not really offer the help needed for one to progress in a climate setup to defeat opposition in the courts. I have read many rulings that say the new schemes seem to be punishment. They are punishment in every sense of the word. Let’s state the obvious, the reason not everyone’s information is easily accessible on the internet is because it’s a violation of privacy (a Constitutional right). Constitutional Rights were put in place by the founders because they knew those rights in any form being taken away without limit were punishment to us as United States citizens. The truth is legislation continues to become worse and worse without relief, while creating protections in other categorized crimes. Any person charged in my state that isn’t charged with a Sex Offense stands a greater chance to turn things around. If charged with a Sex Offense here then it’s a struggle to find which way is up.
I commend organizations like NARSOL for being in existence but people labeled Sex Offenders need more because the ACLU is not cutting it. The ACLU has had 16 almost 17 years to start straightening out these bogus amended laws that have been added. Where is Justice, where is a person’s ability to get legal help against these bogus laws? I know NARSOL can’t help because they have a mission to spread awareness about this issue, I’ve gotten numerous responses from the ACLU that were typical responses saying, “limitations may sometimes exist on certain cases. We do not fight individual cases…” How can they begin to fix anything if they will not take the time to review my evidence that may also help others that have fell under this blanketed law?
My point is that I don’t see a light at the end of the tunnel counting on the ACLU because they limit what impact they can actually make by limiting their scope of focus. I see them doing work on immigration, other rights, and on mothers rights. I do not see them saying on their website here in my state that some people have been swallowed up by this registry without due process or correct application of the law and we are here to fight for them in the courts. Until those words are on their website, I would not consider the ACLU as a valid organization fighting for sensible legislation for sex offenders.
I only hope that new organizations that help Sex Offenders fight for relief from this horrible society accepted oppressive label come into existence and are not so diversely setup that they lose their focus to actually help people like myself. I needed to say this because I don’t see anybody saying it, and saying the truth. We do not have a real agency that primarily focuses on fixing this corrupt law, and they can say it a thousand times in the court that they hope they fix this law. But until we make it happen, it will remain the same. I remember playing little league in the park, that was the last time I was in a park.
