DISPELLING SEX OFFENDER MYTHS By Tim Kowols . . . Kewaunee County is no different than other communities when it comes to welcoming back sex offenders
[See the full post at: Wisconsin sheriff stresses facts about sexual offending and registry]

Kewaunee County Sheriff Matt Joski – To you I say thank you very much for speaking the truth finally that many officials like yourself do not. The others just want to spread fear and panic for no reason and usually make up statistics of their own to further their agendas usually for re-election. It seems that you will, when time comes, will be re-elected because you actually do care about the citizens in your county.
It is very rare that LE officials such as yourself speak the truth – my hat is off to you sir!!

Facts should matter
He’s still throwing us under the bus!! Don’t fall for the feigned concern and pseudo empathy.
” We must also understand that the knowledge of past offenders and their whereabouts is just part of the prevention in these types of crimes.”
WRONG. There’s zero correlation or established link whereas identification equals “prevention.”
The registry doesn’t give mothers “one less thing to worry about.” It only gives them a false sense of relief and psychological comfort.
“We must be vigilant in regards to those who have contact with our children throughout the year.”
That sounds like an overly-excessive pipe dream to me. Why should the government and the community have to shoulder the burden of someone’s child?! The moniker “It takes a village to raise a child” never was applicable and valid.
The only thing you’ll ever get from LEOs enforcing these laws is word salad. They will say and do anything to justify what they’re doing and praise this train wreck.

Understanding is a good thing. At times we wonder who is throwing who under the bus in much or many of these sex registry ordeals. Is it some fame and glory for some to hinder others or is it the fame and fortune of some county sheirff deputy or sheriff or should we all say does history repeat itself in many ways.
Yes nobody likes to be thrown under the bus. I like that oen. I mentioned in one of my comments about the Hatfield and McCoy feud. and their was a lot of hanky panky going on. Even politic’s was a bit corrupt and even sheriff’s at that time. I wonder how it is today. Yes my dad was a banker during that period and knew much about this and yes I lived in Logan County, WV and yes It was pretty corrupt and even politician’s were corrupt in a lot of ways. Bloody Mingo was bad back in those days. You had gambling, bootleg whisky, prostitution and their is a whole history about it.
Yes I’m sure many may understand that much of these registry issues are unjust or who is coal mining many of these operations with this sexual type of inducement with this enticement/provoking and even on adult site’s at many times. Sure one side can speak up for the other side but where is the real truth of the matter or issue in much of this registry.
Everything has a method of operation for the right measure or should one go for injustice or be hoodwinked in much of this registry. And yes many in government can blow a bit or a lot of ” word salad” to use that pharse but truth is truth or is all government going a bit too far.
Sure any official would probably blow a bit of “cold salad” if they wanted to win an election or which is better mud pies’ or rice pudding.

Tim in WI
Indeed the sheriff’s speech you quote denotes a certain identifiable distorted correlation between “having access to knowledge of past offenses” & “Knowing thereabouts ” as it relates to prevention. All victims of assault would like to have known the impossible predicted future. As example I know my neighbor voted Trump in 2016- now does my knowledge of that last prevent my neighbor from doing it again? Tom Scalisce was shot playing softball in DC by a registered gun owner. Does the knowledge of known DC area gun owners prevent it?
If a person found out ahead of time about their own impending death, avoidance would become naturally paramount for the principal. This explains the distortion of reason that ” a database ” can accurately predict a human future or prevent recidivism. In truth SOR is a ” treatment program” as all recidivism directed programs are. Compelled state programming is always court ordered, unless otherwise waived! But not in this case concerning SOR, so who benefited most from the apparent necessary sales pitch as something new?
The surveillance saints.

free registration laws require performance of a charitable act for the state which is inextri-cably intertwined with religion and violates the free exercise thereof because … the number who illitigimately benefit from my charitable registration services far exceed the number who might legitimately benefit. that does not sit well with my creator. its an overwhelming contribution to evil. the only remedy i see is to be paid 97.4% of the fair value of my services to the state but i will pray on it.

You are right!

For all those government officials and anyone working for the state & county & cities who think the registry is not punitive then i challenge anyone of you to put your picture, name, address, etc. just like an offender does, leave it on there for one year with all the restrictions that go with registration and then tell me after a year if it’s a punishment or not. I Challenge You

But he makes the same typical mistake that everyone makes. Look here:
“ We must be vigilant in regards to those who have contact with our children throughout the year. As stated earlier, most sex offenses involve victims who are known to their offenders, and thus prevention must include careful screening of all those entrusted with the care of our kids.”
You cannot be “vigilant” with someone who you trust and know very well. It just doesn’t come easy. I also do not like the use of “vigilant” as it applies to “vigilantes” which are a problem, not a solution.
He then says something smart about sex offenses being committed by those known to the victim and then again finishes with another false sense of security by saying “screening of all those entrusted”… how can you screen someone who hasn’t committed a crime yet? How many times have background checks that come back clean actually backfired on those who checked? Florida is the worst state for people required to register thanks to the nanny who molested Lauren Book.
Isn’t anyone aware that the nanny was obviously “screened” and came back with a clean record in order to get the job? And then what happened? Miss “no prior criminal record” eventually committed a crime.
People and LE need to relax this idea that a background check does any good. You could have been an armed robber and never been caught so obviously nothing is on court record to show you are a criminal. Let’s get over this false sense of security already.
