If you believe it is ok to deny registered sex offenders human rights or U.S. Constitutional rights. If you do not believe registered sex offenders are denied their human and constitutional rights or if you are against free speech.
The First Amendment (Amendment I) to the United States Constitution prohibits the making of any law respecting an establishment of religion, impeding the free exercise of religion, abridging the freedom of speech, infringing on the freedom of the press, interfering with the right to peaceably assemble or prohibiting the petitioning for a governmental redress of grievances. It was adopted on December 15, 1791, as one of the ten amendments that comprise the Bill of Rights.
Why Sex Offender Laws Do More Harm Than Good
The vast majority of sex offenses are committed by trusted adults-family members, friends, clergy-and go unreported because of manipulation of the victims, unconscionable decisions by other adults, or both.

Sex Crime News
As a courtesy to individuals that are accused and denigrated by the media, we do not post sensationalized articles – only law-related.
“there is no correlation between residency restrictions and reducing sex offenses against children or improving the safety of children.” Other groups have noted that laws like these perpetuate the myth that most child sex offenses are committed by strangers, when in fact the overwhelming majority are committed by relatives and people the child knows.
CURE takes the position that sex offender registries be abolished. Present laws have rarely assisted in prevention of an abusive situation. Approximately 90% of all sex offenses are committed by a family member or close acquaintance1. Recidivism rates of less than 5%, by convicted sex offenders2, certainly mitigates against the efficacy of the tremendous expenditure for the registries.
Florida appears to be about the top state when it comes to fascist sex offender laws.
A popular 15-year-old student has committed suicide after he reportedly faced expulsion and being placed on the sex offenders’ register simply for streaking at a high school football game.
An Iowa man who was required to complete sex offender treatment got that requirement reversed by the Court of Appeals.
Sex offender fights registry by registering his registrars
I just voted in the survey that can be found on this page: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/R3K98V5
Also check out this page: http://shiitakeawards.blogspot.com/
I thought I would share what I voted for here in yellow:
Which of the following is the DUMBEST NEW LAW of 2013?
- H.R.2642: Federal Agriculture Reform and Risk Management Act of 2013, Sec. 4037: This amendment to the Food Stamp bill was created by the diaper-wearing David Vitter. If it passes, will deny Registered Citizens food stamps for life, and states cannot opt out of the provision
- Miami Ordinance moves to remove homeless Registrants from Pottinger Homeless Protection Act: Miami has petitioned the court to exclude registrants from a 1998 decision which granted protections against police abuse of the homeless and in assistance for finding permanent housing.
- Montana SB 113: If passed, this bill would have allowed past allegations, even false allegations, to be used against you in court. This would have violated due process. Thankfully, it died in standing committee
Due process is a American institution! With out it we would be in complete anarchy and in exact opposition to our constitution.
2. Which of the following politicians deserves the WORST POLITICO award for 2013?
Which of the following politicians deserves the WORST POLITICO award for 2013?
- Bradford Co FL Sheriff Gordon Smith: Posted red signs in the yards of “sexual predators” in his community, and posed for pictures in an Abu Ghraib-like fashion.
- FL judge Migna Sanchez-Llorens: Judge Sanchez-Lliorens refused to release a man wrongfully incarcerated for 25 years, despite the jury recommendation for immediate release.
- Laura Ahearn, Parents for Megan’s Law: Cites vigilante attack site Evil Unveiled as a relevant source when attacking a critic of her work of harassing registrants in her community.
Which of the following journalists deserve the award for WORST NEWS MUTT of the year 2013?
- Sally Kestin and Dana Williams, FL Sun Sentinel: After reading their fearmongering headline “Sexual Predators Unleashed” in the Sun Slantinel, which declared 500 or so registered citizens not civilly committed reoffended over a 14 year period, FloriDUH pols have created a series of stupid bills. This article, of course, was written in response to the Cherish Perrywinkle case.
- Maxine Bernstein, The Oregonian: What better way to unveil the new version of The Oregonian than to declare your state a “per capita” sex offender haven? Especially given your proverbial “haven” is a county the size of Vermont with a population of 7,000 people. Furthermore, she insisted on sticking with the premise of the article after being given the facts by activists.
- Jeanne Sager, Café Mom writer: Sager suggested that a woman who lost custody of her kid to a (falsely accused) registered citizen should kidnap the child and go into hiding. She ignored the fact that the woman was declared unfit by a judge and that the registrant is most likely innocent of his initial crime.
Say what? Which of the following quotes is the DUMBEST QUOTE of 2013?
- Bruce M. Ferg, US Attorney (AZ), on prosecuting a 10 year old kid as a sex offender: “My opinion is this is the best thing that could’ve happened to the kid…”It is not vague to say, ‘If you do this kind of activity, we don’t care what age you are, you are liable for prosecution.’ “
- Lauren Book, victim industry advocate: “In so many instances these individuals should never ever be allowed out for a second chance, they’re ticking time bombs, it’s not a question if they re-offend, it’s a question of when they re-offend.”
- Jefferson Co. AL Randy Christian on registration during a disaster: “We hold them accountable every day of the year and when they come in to register we let them know there will be no excuses, not even a disaster. We take a no excuses approach with those guys. We think that that’s necessary and think it’s the right thing to do. And that’s just the way we’re going to handle it. Listen if they, even if they go to a shelter, we notify the people in the shelter just like we would notify a community when one moves in.”
This way of thinking is insane, for real.
Which of the following candidates most deserves the “EVERYDAY ZEROES 2013” award? This is the category for everyday citizens and wannabe vigilantes.
- Bubba the Love Sponge: Long time controversial Florida shock jock follows example of fellow Shiitake nominee Sheriff Gordan and posts self-made red “predator” signs at the homes of registrants just before halloween in a publicity stunt.
- Meg Lanker-Simons: The University of Wyoming Feminist/ Politial Blogger who created a fake account and threatened to rape herself in lame attempt to garner attention for her blog
- Sara Ylen of Michigan: She falsely accused a man for rape over a decade ago, gaining fame and fortune in the process. This year, she was finally arrested for making another false allegation.
This guy needs to be arrested.
HOLY SHIITAKES is the category for the dumbest sex offender/ Registered Citizen related story of the year. Which story most deserves this award?
- Kevin Alan Tussy’s Google Glass Facial Recognition App — Aside from teaching people how to circumvent the Google Glass ban on facial scanners, Tussy is using registrants to justify violation the ethics code to sell his face scanners and to try to make millions.
- Registrant arrested for having one bullet in his car — Nicholas Elizondo can’t catch a break. First, the guy served time for a crime he most assuredly didn’t commit after being prosecuted by one of the chief proponents of the Satanic Ritual Abuse panic in Bakersfield. Then, the guy has been ridiculed for winning custody of his child after the mother was proven to be an unfit parent. Now, the guy was arrested, and his child taken away, because cops say they found a single bullet in his car.
- NC Registrant arrested for attending church —- Lincoln County officials say Bandy attended worship services Nov. 24 and last Sunday at New Vision Ministries in Lincolnton. Investigators say Bandy also attended Sunday school. Deputies say that put Bandy within 300 feet of the church’s day care and Sunday school classes for children. He was arrested Wednesday and released on $5,000 bond.
The ICBS NATIONAL CHUMPionship is the category for worst state of the year. Which of the following states do you feel is the worst state of 2013?
- FLORIDA — FloriDUH has won three of first five Shiitake Awards. In the wake of the Cherish Perrywinkle case and the subsequent Sun-Slantinel article sounding the alarm about “sexual predators” who dodged civil commitment and later reoffended, FloriDUH is already looking to pass a barrage of knee jerk laws. In addition, Miami just removed registrants from a homeless rights protection bill.
- NEW YORK — Suffolk County gave registration verification powers to the non-profit group Parents For Megan’s Law and founder Laura Ahearn, at a cost of $1.2 Million a year.
- ALABAMA — Two politicians try each year (failing, thankfully) to pass two bad bills. Kurt Wallace seeks to pass anti-clustering laws, and Steve Hurst wants to pass a mandatory surgical castration bill for all Registrants with victims age 12 or younger.

Almost all sex crimes are falsely prosecuted! The emotional nature of the crime throws a big bunch of confusion into the court system.
That combined with our country’s hang up with sex.
That combined with the sex industry of our country making millions hand over foot.
That combinedbined with the media and the internet motivated by the “sex sells” motto.
This all makes the sex crime the most unfairly tried court case in the history of the world. I believe at least 80% of the people in prison for sex crimes should not be there. Most sex crimes are between family members or someone you know or trust; not by a predator. Most registered sex offenders are falsely judged by our society as predators. To judge someone falsely is a very serious thing. I believe it will be the down fall of us all; to treat other humans this way. unless we wise up. Sex offender laws are new laws, the constitution of the United States is our foundation and is what started our great country. Which would you consider more sound and stable? The fact is that this way of closed minded thinking is extremely unpopular. Closed mindedness has been described as a mental disorder. If history has proven anything; what is extremely unpopular like gay rights or to end racism; ends up to be the everyday norm. I believe in the future the public registration of any person for any crime will be abolished and illegal and people going to prison for sex crimes will be few and far between. My hope is that I might be a voice of reason to this emotionally charged debate. I care about my country and my community and the world for that matter, and only want to help, that is the purpose of this blog. My new year’s resolution was to help others on the internet and this is what I came up so far. I just want to do my part to help us all to enjoy life liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
“Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness” is a well-known phrase in the United States Declaration of Independence. The phrase gives examples of the various “unalienable rights” which the Declaration says all human beings have been given by their Creator and for the protection of which they institute governments.
No matter how wronged I may ever be by our great country. Thee greatest country the world has ever know; in my opinion. I would never let that deter my vow of patriotism from birth; from being more powerful than Nathan Hale himself.
I would like to ad this for your consideration. What better way to present ourselves to our enemies around the world than as a nation of crazed sex offenders.
|registered sex offenders are drowning in that lukewarm spue|
A new legal challenge has delayed the start of stricter registration requirements for sex offenders in Nevada.The law, modeled after the federal Adam Walsh Act, would require many offenders who judges have said are not dangerous — including some who were as young as 14 at the time they committed a sex crime — to make their names, photos and addresses available to the public. Since Nevada lawmakers approved the law in 2007, pieces of it have gone before courts from the district to federal levels.
It was set to go into effect Feb. 1, but the Nevada Supreme Court put a temporary stop to it Thursday following a lawsuit filed by Las Vegas firm Langford McLetchie on behalf of 24 unnamed clients. The lawyers filed suit Jan. 16 in Clark County District Court to stop enforcement of the law, but on Jan. 28 Judge Douglas Smith rejected their request. So they went to the state’s high court.
A D.C. Superior Court judge ruled Tuesday that a convicted sex offender can distribute and post photos of court employees online to protest the city’s sex offender registry.
Dennis Sobin, a former pornographer who served more than a decade in prison for a sexual performance using a minor, posted the photos of employees from D.C.’s Court Services and Offender Supervision Agency (CSOSA) on idiotsregistry.info saying that sex-offender registries are unfair. A court employee filed for a civil protection order, accused him of stalking and asked the court to have Sobin to remove her photo.
INDIANAPOLIS — An Indiana law barring most registered sex offenders from using social networking sites such as Facebook is unconstitutional, a federal appeals court ruled Wednesday.
The law that bans sex offenders from using sites they know allow access to youths under the age of 18 is too broad, a three-judge panel determined, and “prohibits substantial protected speech.”
To be upheld, the appeals court found, such a law needs to be more specifically tailored to target “the evil of improper communication to minors.”
The ruling from the 7th U.S. Circuit of Appeals in Chicago overturned a June decision by a district court judge in Indianapolis that upheld the law enacted by the legislature in 2008.
The American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana filed a class-action suit challenging the law on behalf of sex offenders, including a man identified only as John Doe who served three years for child exploitation. The offenders were all restricted by the ban even though they had served their sentences and are no longer on probation.
“We reverse the district court and hold that the law as drafted is unconstitutional,” judges Joel M. Flaum, John D. Tinder and John J. Tharp Jr. wrote in the ruling.
Republican state Sen. John Waterman, who authored the 2008 law, responded with a pledge to look for a new way to protect children from online predators that will pass Constitutional muster.
“We will study this issue again and make a new proposal,” Waterman said in a statement. “Then, it will be up to the courts once more to decide whether it’s narrow enough.”
It was unclear Wednesday how many people may have been charged under the law over the past four years and what their immediate recourse might be.
Larry Landis, executive director of the Indiana Public Defender Council, said one thing is clear: Convictions will not automatically be vacated.
“There is no self-correction,” he said, “in our criminal justice system.”
Instead, those charged under the law will have to ask a court to vacate their conviction.
“It takes the person with a wrong conviction to initiate an action,” Landis said.
Landis said he spoke out against the law when it was being discussed in the legislature “for the obvious reasons that it was overly broad and might interfere with employment opportunities.”
But he said it was a hard sell because lawmakers have little sympathy for sex offenders — even when they have paid for their crimes.
“Often, with these kind of bills, your only success in killing them is to convince the committee chairman to not give it a hearing because you know everyone will vote for it when it comes up on the floor,” he said.
That was the case with Waterman’s bill. It sailed through the House and Senate without a single opposing vote. Former Gov. Mitch Daniels signed the legislation into law March 24, 2008.
U.S. District Judge Tanya Walton Pratt upheld the law in June, ruling the state has a strong interest in protecting children and finding that social networking has created a “virtual playground for sexual predators.” She acknowledged the law’s reach was broad and “captures considerable conduct that has nothing to do” with the state’s goal of protecting children from predators, but found offenders have “ample alternative channels of communication.”
The law made a first violation a Class A misdemeanor punishable by up to one year in jail. However, any subsequent, unrelated violation would be a Class D felony, carrying a penalty of up to three years in jail.
“This law is overly broad,” said Ken Falk, legal director for the ACLU of Indiana. “It would even bar someone who was convicted 40 years ago from participating in a Twitter feed with the Pope.”
Falk said Indiana already has laws that prohibit anyone from soliciting or engaging in inappropriate with children — and they include enhanced penalties if the act is done on the Internet.
The broad prohibition in the 2008 law hinders legitimate, constitutionally protected online interactions with other adults at a time when that form of communication is as common and necessary as the telephone was just a few years ago, Falk said.
Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller said in a statement issued by his office that he is reviewing the decision to assess the state’s options.

Full ArticleState Senate Passes Bill to Prohibit Internet Extortion
The California Senate has voted unanimously to approve a bill (SB 1027) that would prohibit the commercial use of booking photos. The bill would also provide individuals with the ability to sue anyone who publishes or otherwise disseminates booking photos and then requires payment of a fee
or other consideration to remove, correct or modify that photo. Those who violate the law are subject to “an amount equal to the greater of $1,000 per violation or the actual damages suffered”, along with costs, attorney’s fees and any other legal or equitable relief.
“Private websites are currently posting booking photos of registered citizens and requiring them to pay up to $500 for removal of those photos,” stated CA RSOL President Janice Bellucci. “This bill would stop that unlawful practice of internet extortion.”
The Senate approved the bill on April 28 on which date the bill was transferred to the California Assembly for its consideration. California RSOL supports this bill and is lobbying on its behalf.

How to Stay Compliant by Meeting State Registration Requirements
Registered citizens must meet registration requirements in the states they visit as well the states in which they reside. State visitor requirements vary widely from 48 hours in Florida to 10 days in Hawaii. These requirements apply regardless of whether the visit is a vacation, business trip or school-related activity.
“It is essential for registered citizens to remain compliant when they visit another state,” said CA RSOL President Janice Bellucci. “In order to remain compliant, registered citizens must know the requirements of the state they choose to visit.”
Below is a link to a spreadsheet that provides an overview of requirements for state visitors as well as the verbatim laws from which this information was gathered (current as of May 2014). This information will be permanently linked from the main Navigation under “Legal”.

SEX! trafficking law SO FAQ Update:
This is a example how the religious right wing mixing politics and religion with their paranoia and overly judgmental attitude towards any thing having to do with sex; can actually destroy foreign politics.
Please do not pick apart everything I say. I may not be totally accurate. I bet George W. Bush is awesome and I would love to take my bike to his ranch and ride around and hang out with him. He did say: (“The thing about Ozzy is, he’s made a lot of big hit recordings: Party With the Animals, Sabbath Bloody Sabbath, Face in Hell, Black Skies and Bloodbath in Paradise, Ozzy, Mom loves your stuff.” President Bush, May 4, 2002) ,how cool is that?
If you think of the republican party as a whole and how many times they played the sex offender card; as a means of getting votes (and still do) and the republicans that vote for someone and are lead by such fear mongering’s; you can only equate this to a paranoia and overly judgmental attitude towards any thing having to do with sex mixed with religious beliefs, or at least a lack of education about sex, or a fear of sex. I am sure that is a huge subject and worth volumes of reading; if that is your subject of research.
Please do not let anything I say detour anyone from the facts.
There are people dyeing, being cooked to death in the heat trying to come over the border; thanks in part by sex trafficking laws, crated in haste; like this.

has implications for social emotions, particularly when the
other is in a less powerful position relative to the responder.
Among other things, the relatively greater security of liberals
prompts them to regard the less fortunate with pity, whereas
more anxiously attached conservatives tend to regard them with
scorn. This is consistent with the analysis of Haidt (2003), who
described “other condemning” social/moral emotions – anger,
disgust, and contempt – and a conservative “disgust-based moral
order,” which condemns people for what they are more than
what they do, and tends to ostracize and excludes members of
out-groups (based upon ethnicity, religion, social class, sexual
orientation, etc.). The attachment-security argument also suggests
a developmental origin of the liberal-conservative difference,
consistent with Lakoff’s (2002) suggestion that liberal thought
centers around the Nurturing Parent model of the family as
opposed to Strict Father model of morality underlying conservative
prejudice is based upon parents’ status anxiety leading to harsh
child discipline, consequent repression of aggressive and sexual
feelings on the part of the child, and displacement of aggression
toward weaker groups that was rationalized by projecting one’s
unacceptable sexual and aggressive impulses on those groups.
That psychoanalytically based view of prejudice was questioned
by those who noted that prejudice varied regionally according to
local norms, rather than by personality (e.g., Pettigrew 1961);
and that experimentally-induced failure increases both F scale
scores and tendencies to reject out-groups (e.g., Sales & Friend
1973). Sales (1972; 1973) presented evidence that instances of
social threat (e.g., economic upheavals) have historically been
associated with increases in attendance at authoritarian churches
and other evidence of authoritarianism (e.g., power-oriented
comic book characters, loyalty oaths, suppression of erotica).”

These proposed rules on net neutrality will shape the future of the Internet – shouldn’t we all have a voice in this debate, not just political insiders and powerful corporations?
No more behind-closed-door meetings or meetings with political insiders and powerful corporations. The open Internet affects us all – and the FCC has the responsibility to hear from all of us.
Thirteen senators and 37 members of the House have already called on the FCC to reclassify broadband and protect net neutrality. Not only that but various state officials have invited FCC commissioners to hold roundtable public discussions in their state.
The FCC will vote on this proposal by the end of the year – and if they kill net neutrality, it will threaten the open and free Internet we’ve come to love and depend on.
Powerful corporations are lobbying the FCC hard – and if they win, they will be able to charge more for an Internet “fast lane” and determine what we access online. It’s up to us not to let them get away with it.
Don’t let them drown out our voices. We need to make sure the FCC listens to us, and hears how their policies affect us. It’s up to us to save the Internet, together.
Join us and demand that the FCC hold public hearings about the future of the Internet.

New technologies are making it easier for private companies and the government to learn about everything we do – in our homes, in our cars, in stores, and within our communities. As they collect vast amounts of data about us, things are getting truly spooky!
Our privacy is being eroded and our freedoms threatened – but we are up for the fight. Are you?
Our new video might make you laugh, but a future without any privacy is just scary. And privacy is not the only thing at stake when everything we say, everywhere we go, and everyone we associate with is fair game.
We have seen that surveillance – whether by government or corporations – shuts down free speech and free association, undermines a free media, and threatens the free exercise of religion.
We shouldn’t be forced to choose between new technologies and our liberty. With the proper safeguards, we can regain control over our personal information.
The data snatchers are no longer science fiction. They’re closer than you think. But if we work together, we can ward them off.
