      Well researched article. Good read, excellent points. Makes me sick to see so many registrants and their families suffer from such poor legislation.

      Here’s an idea: Find out who those NPR Idiots that WILLINGLY report nothing but False and Misinformed Data about Us; and place THEIR NAMES on The Registry. Then alert every Vigilante Group about where they live. That’s pretty much what Every State legislature is doing TO Us anyway. Right? When one or more of Them get Attacked, then Maybe…just maybe, they’ll see for themselves what it’s like to REALLY live in Fear…assuming they survive the initial Attack. Fight Fire, With Fire!
      Done.

      It’s really sad to see how legislation of simple straight forwarded intent morphs into the blood sucking beast that it is today. The majority of S/O’s that are on the registry are there for sleeping with a underage girl. Back in the day, this kind of wrongdoing was legally rectified by shotgun wedding. The only reason it was illegal in the first place was because states didn’t want to pay out welfare to young, unwed girls taken advantage of by a older man. This is totally understandable to me. But then opinions shift and laws merge and physicians with their psychobabble talking about how psychologically damaging that kind of stuff is gets what once was a 2 year max crime up to the 10 to life offence that it is today. Now this law designed to save the state money is now costing it even more money. Dhs benefits are 10-15 grand a year if you’re lucky. It costs up to 50 grand a year to lock up a inmate in prison. It just goes to show how a law of humble origins is blown out of proportion and it’s intended purpose is defeated. That’s America for ya.

      I must say, being in the registry has left me completely isolated from society in a way I’d never thought was even possible. I’ve come to accept that Noone will ever date me, but not being allowed to go out of state to visit elderly relatives is pushing things a bit far. I’m not given any help in wanting to go out of state for a couple days. Instead I’m told I have to “deregistering” in my state then go to the next state and “follow their laws” concerning registration. And I’m forced to provide an address of where I’m going before I leave this state. I know full well that the clowns will be watching my every move while I’m traveling and just wait for a certain amount of time between reporting, etc and BAM away I go. I don’t know how else to say it, but this life is ABSOLUTELY NOT worth living on the registry. I’m afraid of every person I get to know finding out about me and instantly judging me. It’s happened twice already, and once led an entire staff of a store to blatantly stare at me in disgust making it clear I wasn’t welcome. I have Noone, and Noone is stupid enough to be associated with a sex offender. So…. I just need another 50 yrs to go by then I can be free of all this, though my body will be in the ground. With all the isolation, I am certain more people would celebrate my death than would mourn me. Lol.

      BTW, it has been shown to me through a spiritual experience that what put me on the registry is not going to be looked at much as I fear when I look back over my entire life.

      “Registrants, like victims, don’t feel they have much of a voice, so very few have the courage to speak up and tell their stories,” writes Jeff Miller, a Utah registrant who was one of the targets of a similar compliance sweep in 2017, by email.

      I think this is the very reason for the registry’s existence. Think about it: Those who have victimized young children targeted a helpless victim who had no way to fight back or defend themselves in any way. Enter the registry. The public sees the registry doing to us what those who molested children did to their victims and their message is loud and clear. “How does it feel to get f****d with an not be able to do anything about it?”

      The mantra of victim advocates since the mid-1980s has been, “Child molestation ruins a person for life. They live with the emotional scars forever. Why should the abuser get off with just a few years in prison and then be able to get out and go back to their lives like nothing ever happened?”

      That’s how I see this. It seems to me that actions like those of this police department should be entered into the record to show the punitive intent of the registry; how it is abused to inflame the public.

      Steve Yoder,

      Federal lawsuits are not always the proper choice. Better to train registrants HOW TO DEFEND YOURSELVES IN FTR SCENARIOS. Filing motions to compel records pretrial and so forth. All the tactics necessary to actually get a fair jury. Every Judge must acknowledge that difficulty. Wherefore ” special consideration ” motion for vior can be justified. This adds value to the defense.

      When in mass FTR trials are burning U.S. court calendars things will change rapidly.
      Naturally Rock County hates to see me on the docket. I spend 4 sessions explaining why I do not need a lawyer. Fist them if they do not like it.

      The scathing flagrant hypocrisy of this “society” has me in a rage!!! I am so angry at people as they sat back a let of people in government who are associated with actual sexual predators, Satanists, destroy liberty and trainwreck us financially.
      Even with all what the government has done, they still won’t stand up!!!!!!! HnH’s story has me so angry at the American people!!!!!!! I could not go through that and stay sane.
      People in this country are self-absorbed, self-righteous, sadistic, avaracious, murderous,
      churlish, fearful, treacherous, monstrous, uncaring, callous, coldhearted f****ng monsters!!!
      Its not even the politicians and judges at this point, it is the goddamned people who refuse to wake up, because they have such an addiction and affinity with schadenfreude. Not realizing that the powers that be are using them and manipulating that low vibrational sinister energy to foment more hatred and destruction. The public cannot continue in such willful, continuous callous disregard for truth and righteousness and not suffer severe karmic consequences. The truth is out there, the American people should know way better by now. They should have woke up at minimum 8-12 yrs ago.

      A House divided against itself cannot stand. The American People will reap they have sown in the midst of their vindictive double-standards, flagrant hypocrisy, avarice, malignancy, bloodlust, evil hatred, and apathy.

      The sex offender experiment is overdone, the supporters of it are just vindictive idiots on a power trip enabled by the public opinion they helped build. It may just be time for the bill to come due on the whole facade. They’re always looking to cut corners somewhere, but when it comes to the sex offender debacle they just keep throwing money at it since it ain’t theirs.
