facts should matter
It’s as though we’re intentionally being made a spectacle out of on purpose. Oh wait, we are! Fear sells itself when it comes to being tried in the court of public opinion, so any attempt to assuage that unwarranted fear will be met with heavy resistance and spin from the cops and lawmakers. That is why the proponent’s go-to argument: “it’s a public safety tool” needs to be debunked and discredited. That would also render mute their “it’s already public information” nonsense.

Begin by calling it what it is, A gov database. Call it a property. Call the regime a plantation it acts just like one.

One positive thing that has transpired from this article is that the law school is keenly interested in issues affecting those on the registry. Academic lawyers are beginning to reach out to NCRSOL for questions and guidance on how to “rid of the registry.”
However, it was a brave student writer that reached out to me to better understand the registry from our perspective and the police perspective. He was courageous enough to write about the NARSOL mission and blend it well with the realities and perspectives of others. The writer walked away, feeling that the registry served the purpose of continual punishment. I didn’t have to make the argument. He discovered and learned to share amongst others. The writer for this story was recently recognized by the Pulitzer Center. Just imagine once he has a larger platform and audience to reach to build off such stories?
Education takes time. Reaching that audience could take a significantly longer period. But we must keep trying to educate.

If the media and politicians should post facts and not fear mongering bs maybe the world would see the registry for what it is.

Let’s call it what it really is – a government blacklist.
We have all been blacklisted by our government.

The task we have at hand is to reach our legislators from the various counties within North Carolina and try and help them understand the result of the registry. The original intent, from law makers viewpoint, may have been to identify sexual offenders within the law enforcement community and detect repeat offenders. The current interest is in creating another registry for law enforcement officers who are convicted of a crime associated with abusive behavior. Most States that have formalized Training and Standards for law enforcement have such a procedure to identify and put in their training records such behavior and convictions. Duplication is a common practice when it comes to making “feel good” laws. Legislators, Senators and Congressmen all want their constituents to see and know they are making them feel safe! Our job is to let those law makers at whatever level we can reach them, local, State and Federal, know that their attempts to make individuals feel safe with sex registry rules and regulations just don’t work as originally intended. Law enforcement cannot use the registry to justify additional officers. And, when those officers are hired they are put in other divisions, usually patrol. The registry receives only the necessary attention to fulfill the regulations that the particular State requires the local law enforcement entity to perform. This is costly and money not well spent within the individual departments. And what has it accomplished? Nothing that is in any way, where the rubber meets the road, useful in the reduction of sex offenses or in particular the deterrence of repeat offences, which are rare in previously convicted sex offenders. So, let’s get to work. Begin where you live and with those who will listen. You might find that even your local Sheriff is recognizing how much of a waste of time their Office spends in this needless formality. Especially if he or she is not running again for their position and will step out and speak the truth to the local commissioners. Most good managers are looking for a way to drop needless bureaucracy and shuffle their resources to more needed and productive crime prevention programs. Programs that really reduce crime and increase public support of their particular agency.
