Residency Restrictions A bigoted idea that is illegal and True Americans should be ashamed of

Through our elected representatives efforts, they have legally created a class of people and that class is registered citizens. What does this mean as far as our judicial system is concerned. It means that this group of people are now able to stand on the same ground to fight their battles as anyone else, that is been discriminated against because of race, color, creed, religious views, disabilities, or ethnic background. One of the things to realize is that denying this group of citizens the ability to travel freely to use public facilities to choose where to live or to denying them work is in fact a form of segregation. No different than denying Members of a ethnic group from living in certain communities using publicly funded facilities or services. Make no mistake denying any group of people the ability to live or work where ever they choose or the use of public facilities that are available to everyone else. Is a form of segregation no matter what some may use as an excuse for the justification of the segregation.

Well written article highlighting the truth – an elusive commodity in the world of lawmakers. The constitution is actually broken, not stretched to the breaking point as I have previously alluded. Thanks to this author for going beyond emotion and getting to the salient facts and relating them to the specific protections in the constitution that are being breached. Here you have a case of the lawmakers finding ways to actively dismember the constitution and relying on an uniformed and misinformed public to do it under the color of authority. Thanks infinitely to the author and the few courageous individuals… Read more »

Are CA lifetime supervised sex offenders subjected to polygraph exams?
If so, do you have rules and regulations about the process?
Would appreciate your input since we are having a problem with this in Nevada… among many other problems in prisons and now, with the possible adoption of the Adam Walsh Act.

Will appreciate in input, or links…
Thank you.

HI Mercedes Maharis; I’ve been on the registry since 1999 and have never been forced to take a polygraph test and I have not heard it mentioned in this forum either. So I think it’s safe to say that we do not have that in the stupid state (California). What I have written below is not to frighten you, and I am not a pessimist, I’m just saying how it is here. I’m sure many that frequent this site will concur with what I am saying. Now; you and every one else affected by the AWA in Nevada (should it… Read more »

I was checking briefly today for a “National Child Protective Organization” powerful enough to confront child abusing legislators who willfully allow pain and suffering for children of registrants. Perhaps these callous lawmakers are too stupid to realize the collateral damage they cause to innocent children or possibly they don’t care but clearly they need to be held accountable for gross child abuse. It may be acceptable to harm children of registrants, to some, but I would hope that the majority of intelligent and caring people would value them also. If child protective agencies and organizations are unwilling to join in… Read more »

(PS) If the murdered child, Adam Walsh knew what is happening in his name, facilitated by his father; I’m sure he would not approve.

I would also suggest regular visits to this site since the NV-RSOL seems to be dormant at this time.

@ Mercedes Maharis, As part of Chelsea’s Law (AB 1844) there is a provision that allows treatment provider’s to subject California parolee’s and probationer’s to polygraph exam’s. I’ve also heard that previous to this law Federal parolee’s were also subject to this. It’s scary how they skirt around the Fifth Amendment (self incrimination) on this and many other punishment they throw at registrants. I don’t believe it has been utilized consistently across the state as there was no provision for funding. Polygraph and the Containment Model Starting in July 2012, registered sex offenders on parole or probation are required to… Read more »

This law was modeled after what San Diego County had been doing for years. They (probation) made you pay over $100 as part of your “treatment”. They (including my lawyer) didn’t say you had any right to not answer. If you didn’t answer or the examiner (a private contractor) thought you were lying, you could earn yourself a visit from the FBI,as had happened to me. They took my computer which I needed for work. After a week it was returned. Maybe they just needed an excuse to put a tracking devise on it, I don’t know. This was all… Read more »

I guess it has worked so far, eh? I don’t honestly believe it will prevent another random murder. The polygraph testing might have prevented the “Butner Study” in which S.O. patients were encouraged and coerced, under threat of not progressing in treatment, to confess they had multiple victim’s who never existed.

Yah. The law was rushed through, with grieving mom in tow. “Emergency, emergency”. Same ole same ole. Didn’t take the time to analyze other options or the affects it would have on rights or public safety. It was political theater at its best.

Thank you all very much for this education. I appreciate your taking the time.
Fingers crossed that relief will trickle down for all who suffer soon.

Just saw The Hunt, now on Netflix. This film is excellent. Food for thought on many levels that will hopefully cause a reduction in stigma.

Thank you again.

In case you have not seen this about the NV challenge to the implementation of the Adam Walsh Act… here’s a copy that I found on the net…

Best to all in this struggle… I like the Cicero quotation very much… so true, so long ago.. and now…

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
