      Nice headline! If only the AP would present it as such.

      It could be seen as positive that 40% of residents DIDN’T want larger distance requirements. Pretty amazing considering that Texas (and everywhere else too) is encouraging its citizens to hate and fear anyone who happens to be on the Registry.

      90,000 on the Texas Registry!!! How much longer before all that needless misery hits critical mass?

        When a man can stand in front of a jury and tell the DA that yuo think he’s nuts! Try it, like I did, its worth every penny! It can be less than 700. The fact is a con can as our founders did rightly was the right to trial AND call witness, indeed ANY PUBLIC or former OFFICIAL can be called to the stand. While a man under threat of felony conviction he in a sense becomes as powerful as the President for beck and call under court summons to testify in his defence.
        One could advance cause in his best defence those involved in his indenture to state property owned wholely by the people commonly known as state sex offender registry or Megan’s law website. They are computer databases. Computer databases are machines plain and simple. But it presumes to much is provable by call of expert witness. A computer database is powerful BUT it can not predict the future…. Ever? This is the basis for rejecting the General Warrant in the first place!

        If an act acknowledge law neither based in STATE or FED jurisdiction, be outside jurisdiction sole & Sovereign. No other shall exist. That a court should recognize jurisdiction other not beholden in “law”.

      Never seen a group of people so PROUD of something that doesn’t work. What they are attempting to prevent is no possible, much less achievable with any iteration of community notification. If anything, they need to be demoralized and disempowered because they’re not fighting the good fight they think they are.

      Can this question be answered and presented to out town officials? What is the true percentage of the 90.000 that have reoffended? What can we do to help promote the correction of this information?

        No, the question cannot be answered, and any attempt to answer it with an statement other than the results of a legitimate, published study or with a truthful phrase such as, “Very few registered citizens living in the community commit another sexual offense,” would be to lay ourselves open to charges of using numbers that cannot be verified and would undermine our veracity in everything we say. We do everything we can to get the facts before the public, and mainstream media is starting to help with that to a significant degree. The fact is that town officials, in most situations, already know the truth, but following the truth does not take precedence over doing what their constituents want.

          Until they understand that an unsecured DATABASE is a MUCH BIGGER threat to their security.

        You miss the point. NO ONE CARES ABOUT THE FACTS. The sheep blindly follow the leaders they elect who make decisions on emotions and “tuff on crime” stances so as to get re-elected. You can spout facts until you are blue in the face and nothing will change.

        If you want change, you just have to pray that sons and daughters of politicians, city leaders, judges, etc… get charged with a sex offense. Then, and only then, will the parents of these people see the light for what the laws really are and do and the negative effects on families.So start praying.

      This is all fine until their loved one is caught in this far reaching net. Soon everyone will know someone on the registry and that someone could very well be their own child thanks to cell phones and the internet. Then maybe they will look at the facts and find ways to truly protect children and their families. Thanks to NARSOL for all you do.

      Stop for a minute. Sure safety is a factor and yes I would be proud I saved someone but when their is no one to save just assuming because of a potty mouth or a few playboy magazine’s or some porno on a computer screen that’s the guilty conscious of the individual. Now factor in police when they get wind of something or present an opportunity such as these internet sex sting operations than one has to say who is proud.
      I wonder if that gunman was proud of killing all those people or was he deranged, mentally ill, or did someone give him the opportunity?
      We can all talk about useless restrictions, even sometimes running one’s mouth….. sorry about that maestro . just kidding my friend, but seriously we all should care for each other and bare each other’s burden. Today it doesn’t seem that way. You rub one’s thigh and someone tells police, or you tongue kiss a gal that is a bit younger than the other and the police find out, they are gonna sock it to you. Its all about conscious. Don’t you know pride goeth before the fall.
      Hey who would ever image that some person would go into a church and start shooting people, or who would ever image someone mowing down people in NY and it goes on and on. Now as I have said the police are to protect and serve. I guess pretty soon picking your nose in public is going to be a crime of some sort.

      Good luck to Texas Voices for Reason and Justice. As the number of folks on the registry grows, we’ll be seeing more and more of this type of push back, especially from a select number of states. Eventually something will give, not sure what or how but in time when folks on this foolish registry don’t cause any problems and people realize they are good neighbors they have to come around. Lets all keep fighting and supporting Narsol and our state affiliates.

      “There is convincing documented evidence that sex offenders are sexual predators who present an extreme threat to public safety, are likely to use physical violence in the commission of their crimes and have a higher recidivism rate than persons convicted of other crimes,” states the ordinance in the North Texas town of Venus.

      Well there you have it. They’re from Venus. Being from another planet must be their excuse for being so naive. 😂😂😂

      Boy I’m so glad I don’t think but I believe women are from Venus and men are from Mars but still maestro makes a good point. Too much pressure on anyone can make one go off the wall and start shooting up things. If some SO is gonna take their life I’m sure if the pressure from government or rules or ordinance’s can pushing people to the verge and sometimes the law really goes to far. Protecting and serving are good but any law enforcement that gives one an opportunity isn’t. Spying is a whole different matter or digging into one’s brain matter..
      I didn’t say anything maestro so remember a mind is a terriable thing to waste… Now if I could only spell.

      The only real recourse as I see it is the constitution and supreme court. Life, liberty and pursuit of happiness is not granted but is a birth right. The punishing should stop after punishment is rendered and price is paid in full. Keep a positive attitude and maintain purpose, this is within an individuals control, no one can take it away.

      “More often, they function as a legal keep-out sign warning sex offenders they are unwelcome.” Doesn’t that just give you a warm fuzzy feeling. The “officials” tell us we are not welcome. Doesn’t matter what the neighborhood wants, the officials don’t want us.

      With all the sexual happenings of the legislature, it makes me wonder why they don’t see this. Bill Clinton and his Monica, the senator that tapped his foot under the stall to get a blowjob, and all the sexting and leering of the legislature with the interns. Each and every one of them should try just a week on the registry and see how they all fair. And yes, they have all done things that will get you on the registry.

      It is time to take our country back, throw the trash out of the white house, and become the home of the free and the land of the brave.
