WASHINGTON, Sept. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — The U.S. Department of Justice’s (DOJ) Office of Justice Programs (OJP) today announced more than $15.5 million in Fiscal Year 2013 grant assistance for states, territories and tribal governments to use in implementing, training, maintaining and enhancing sex offender programming throughout the United States.

That is alot of money just to track people and harass them…

Awesome, more compliance checks at night because the overtime is covered. Because it’s big gov’t dollars, we can rest easy knowing it will be largely wasted on upper management law enforcement personnel, useless training and probably lots and lots of rewriting statistics and press releases.

That’s it…I am not paying anymore income taxes!

If I am forced to financially support an organization that is hostile toward me and actively discriminates and violates my constitutional and human rights then I have the right to not contribute to that organizations support, maintenance, and growth as it is directly opposed to my well-being.

I will NOT pay them to abuse me.

My advice to all registrants and their families…start multiple small business endeavors and use them to get every tax deduction possible! This way you can stick it to them legally by getting back anything not only you but your spouse has paid into income tax!

Guys, don’t worry! Do your math! There are 52 states. Divide $15 million by 52? That’s $288k per state? Uh, how many counties per state? Cities? That is chump change!

Yes..BUT much like a Christmas gift it is the thought that counts!

I am truly sorry for Adam Walsh,that is horrable, But what has something Horrible, got to do with my 28 year ago plea deal.::?????I am not horrable, hell I can’t even spell it. that money will get lost….
thank you

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
