Mr. Montaldi resigned from his position as head of SVP because he was so grossly vilified for expressing the truth. Is the new head going to have the “guts” to stand up for justice?
Is “right” determined by the one who signs your check? Or perhaps by the hysterical, misinformed mob? And don’t forget those who profit– the ones who own and/or run the places of incarceration and lobby lawmakers extravagantly.

Thry are talking about a law named after the victim (NOT ANOTHER LAW). I wonder how many lives will be turned into a living hell because of this one act!

It doesn’t matter the name…Betsy…or wilbur…donner or
blitzen ….they bypass Constitutional civil rights as if you
committed the same crime as that megen or jessfica law…
both had the elements of abduction/kidnap …rape…and murder……NO one in this whitewash registry has those
elements of crime ….Its a crime restricting free Americans
that had nothing to do with that bs miggen or jissfica….due
process …???…let them come to calibama.calibama

Wasn,t there an African American kid in Florida, beat up and shot by a non sexual, but violent predator? I forgot the law named after him. That’s right, they didn’t name a law after him. I remember, they said he brought his death on himself.
