NE: Ruling that allowed kids in sex offender’s home spurs lawmaker

LINCOLN — Reactions ranged from bewilderment to outrage over a Nebraska Supreme Court decision earlier this year that allowed two girls to remain in the home of a felony sex offender.

And the decision set a clear precedent, said Brandon Brinegar, the Kearney lawyer who represented the biological father who had tried to remove the girls from the sex offender’s residence. Brinegar said lawmakers would have to act to prevent similar rulings in the future.

That’s just what a state senator from Omaha intends to do in the upcoming session of the Legislature. Full Article

    You know, looks like the judiciary is the weakest branch of government, when the three need to be balanced for the tree of government to stand upright as intended at founding. This is only one example of many where a court doesn’t make the most popular decision, soon the legislature will see to it that no future unpopular decisions will ever be made by the court again. They will make a new law just to correct that one perceived mistake. Just like California did with the Broch Turner decision, ensuring no possibility of studied discretion by imposing mandatory minimums. Politicians need surgery to correct their myopia. True, sometimes the courts will make the wrong call, not saying they did here either way, but as in this case, whether right or wrong, it affects only a few people. When legislators react, it affects thousands of registrants, who as a group have a low reoffense rate. This, translated means the law harms a great majority who present no risk. Restrict the many who present no risk in order to catch a few who may, thats the practice now. Which branch is more likely to cause the most harm to the greatest number of not guilty ? The legislature, that’s who. It is the branch needing the most drastic pruning.

    We here at Nebraskans Unafraid and our two Fearless groups are working on this. Many of us will be at the Legislature Judicial Committee meeting where this yet unnamed bill will end up.

    Nebraska resident here. From what I’ve heard, Senator Lindstrom is a reasonable person, who often leans toward positions favorable to RSOs. However, this bill seems – as most do – to be reactive and created sans the facts.

    I am directly effected by this new law for a non-violent crime. I am currently in a custody battle in Nebraska and plan to fight this new legislation fervently. The law and the interpretation of that law is solely at the discretion of the judges. Legislation has no right to further agendas based on the fears of the uneducated citizens who would rather see a bullet in our heads than the true protection of the communities they live in.
    By golly, someone has to pay because we have an uneasy passion to watch others suffer and somehow get off on kicking a “horse” while it’s down. The mentality of the general public is discerning, considering the most fervent individuals who are interactive in positive and productive ways are registrants themselves, when they know their legislators, and play an active role in Senate/committee meetings. I will be there when this bill is set for hearing and my voice will carry beyond measure. I will be the voice as I have been, but it takes us all doing our part and creating a buzz to truly make changes and to be heard.

    Must stop this bill before it spreads like a fungus, like the residence restrictions, with counterproductive results. Please keep us posted on this potential bill. I would like to write letters, even though I am not in Nebraska. I can educate them that family reunification and social normalization is a necessary part of relapse prevention.

    Poor family, aloud to be legally harassed by the Ex. 365.5 days a year of ammunition on the internet for the Ex to legally harass his ex. Every bit of info needed minus social security number. Why don’t some dumbass lawmaker like Lindstrom recommend that? Every Ex offender must get our social security number tattooed on our neck so you know who we are and won’t have to use the internet to find us. This step father did nothing wrong upon being released by the court and yet got legally harassed along with the ex wife through a nightmare played out in a courtroom yet fortunately the court saw through it and applied law. All because of a jealous ex. The court truly made the Easy and Right decision. The only three causing trouble right now are the EX , LINDSTROM, and the EX’s ATTORNEY. They should be jailed and this legal internet stalking and harassing needs to end. God bless that Family, children and all because I know it’s been HELL. FK the Registry and these 3
