Keep up the good work!

Sandy, The word amazing falls short of the professionalism and responses you have accomplished. The way you attack the entire country would make any General take pause. I hold you in high esteem.

Sandy, you are to be commended for ALL of your efforts. As always, they are truly appreciated.

You guys are doing a fine job. Before your intervention I remember buying a house in a small town in Texas. The wife and I were elated to finally be at a place in our life where we could own home. As it has seemed to be for me more often than not my best moments quickly turn into my worst. I was told by the local law enforcemwnt that if I tried to live in my house I would be thrown in jail. There was nothing close to my house but a senior living facility meeting hall that some times had underage visitors. Now mind you I’ve been on the registry since I was about 19 or 20. Most of my adult life has been spent under the yoke of hate and intolerance and subject to a daily dose of media which mirrors the same sentiment. I even researched or tried to find perhaps even another country to live in but quickly realized that the united states of prison has made it so you couldnt even,leave if you wanted to. (Unless you are wealthy which is unlikely for many of us)
Its good to see somebody well equipped and able to take a stance for a group of people that nobody seems to be willing to be humane to. People used to understand that certain rights can never be alienated for any citizen no matter how much you despise them. (Hence enalienable rights are quite alienable) Its a slippery slope and eventually others will join us there. Thanks for your hard work.

Dr. Robert J. Paradise, Ph.D.
Thank you for all you did to try and expose the stereotypical myths and draconian practices that continue to punish, shame and harass former offenders and their families. Keep up the good work.

Thanks for all you do! Maybe one day soon “Sex Offender Harassment Day – Oct 31st” will return to “Halloween Day – Oct 31st” due to your efforts.

Has any information been gathered on any possible vigilantism stemming from the posting of signs in these people’s yards?
All the comments I read on FB stating things like how we deserve horrible deaths, and I feel police feel the same way sometimes, makes me worry for those that were or are required to have the signs.

Capt Charles Munsey Jr. USN (Ret)
In the Navy I learned to not ask a question if I did not already know the answer. Sandy knew the answer to her question proposed to the sheriff. He knew that she knew and he did not want to be quoted by stating a lie as to his intentions. A non-response is as good as a response. I ask constitutional questions as to an ordinance here in Brevard County Florida, and none of the county commissioners respond. They know that I know they are in violation of the constitution and don’t want their violation brought out into the light. This is how cowardly bureaucrats respond.

Thank you so much for all that each one of you at NARSOL is and has been doing, and special thanks to Brenda Jones and Sandy Rozek who went out to the front lines and fought against this horrible hysteria brought out by the media and public officials.
I feel condemned everywhere I go and helpless, and I am a danger to no one at all.
There was no violence whatsoever, but getting involved with an underage girl was completely wrong and I alone am to blame.
It has been over 20 years and I have never re-offended and would never re-offend again, but yet I am treated by society as a bomb that is ready to go off any moment, and thought of as a heinous monster ready to devour someone’s child, and it is just so hard living with this, and trying to live a normal life, which is almost impossible because society just keeps punishing me even though I served the sentence required by the law.
God bless all of you at NARSOL for fighting for truth, justice, and liberty.

Excellent work Sandy.

Sheriff Long in Butts Co. GA should be fired immediately for his actions, and sued into oblivion. It’s morons like this that threaten our lives needlessly and it needs to stop NOW!!

To be honest I have never seen significant media in roads for this cause other then this one area. It seems in the heat of the moment, in regards to this one specific issue media influence can be made. In turn of course this helps improve family life and public opinion is less influenced by weeks of hysteria around Halloween. In New Mexico we pioneered “Operation Boo” long before NARSOL started the marathon. Many years ago we had to shut down as the hysteria faded. The only way things became so much better for registered families on Halloween in New Mexico was several years of addressing media and Law Enforcement disinformation and over reach.

Are compliance checks legal and do I have to participate in them? Had two plain clothes TX DPS agents, two US Marshals, and a uniformed DPS trooper stop by for the compliance check. Can you say overkill! I have discharged my sentence five years ago, the long way, and am a low risk registered sex offender in texas. I have been in compliance ever since my release.

Great job Everyone!!!. Although I would like more details on the “situation” in Tennessee since that is where I am, to see if it affects me at all. Thanks.

Sometimes there is good news to report. My wife and I host Wednesday night dinners for a good home cooked meal for about a dozen people every week. (This was reported on the local news last year: https://www.ketv.com/article/sex-offender-support-group-reaches-out-to-former-offenders/13665156)
Since Halloween was on Wednesday this year and we have a bay window facing the front, we decided not to go dark as we have done for the past four years. (This same TV station showed the local sheriff explaining that parents can go on the public (shaming) registry to see where not to go.) We left our porch light on and welcomed over a dozen groups of children and gave out all the candy brought by our diners. I had to get out my hidden supply of York mints to supply the last two groups. It felt wonderful to have our home with registrants treated neighborly.
