IN: Unregistered sex offenders featured on local billboards

NDIANAPOLIS –Marion County is launching a new effort to go after sex offenders who have not registered by putting them out there for the world to see. It is required by law for sex offenders to register with their local law enforcement so police – and citizens – know where they live.

Those who have not registered in Marion County now risk being featured on billboard around town. The pictures of 40 unregistered sex offenders will be placed on one of three billboards around town to help police find them. One is an electronic billboard by the State Fairgrounds on Fall Creek. The other two are conventional billboards on the east and west sides. Full Article

Well, these people have been un-registered for a while and it hasn’t caused any problems.
Why should they register now? They are not out there committing crimes. No one seems to be claiming they are “wanted” as suspects for anything.

This situation is not a problem. It is merely another proof, as if one were needed, that registration is irrational and unnecessary—–and possibly, in fact, counter-productive.

I only hope that if they ever do that here that they don’t use my driver’s license photo! It’s horrible. I would gladly go to Glamour Shots for a makeover. The last thing I want is for my face to be 40 feet high and have a zit!

Don’t worry, they will probably use your 290 photo. Just make sure you dress and groom nicely on your next Birthday. 😉

I had a compliance check three weeks ago by the local sheriff. I was at work, but my overly curious neighbor was interested in their presence and approached them to see what was going on. They showed him a photo of me and asked him if the guy in their photo lived at this residence. He tells me that after seeing the photo he denied ever seeing THAT person before. I guessed that between the snarly expression on my face and that they were displaying a copy of a copy of a copy that was converted to black and white… Read more »

It is great that you have taught your son to not speak to law enforcement. That is one of the best things that you can do to protect him.

How about instructing your son to never answer the door? It would be even better if you can put a wall or fence around your property and never allow nanny big government employees there.

Since it’s not a legal requirement for your son to acknowledge that you live there, no real reason for him to even do that much.

I understand that there is no segment of PC290 that requires a compliance check. But these officers are doing what their superiors are requesting. While I was on parole I had many encounters with law enforcement officers from a wide range of offices including the DA’s office, Customs and immigration, marshal, police, sheriff, probation, and parole all rooting through my home. This is what makes up the S.A.F.E. team in here in RivCo. One of The days they were making a sweep in my area, one fellow got mouthy with them. According to my P.O. they violated him for having… Read more »

You allow law enforcement to question you? Sweet Jesus. Tell them to go F themselves. In the state where I live, I am forced to give nanny big government certain information. That is the law. So that is what I do and all I do. I have made it very clear to them that I will not waste a single second or bit of effort more for their BS. It is really not a big deal at all. They know that if they come to my property, they will not be allowed to step foot on it. They know that… Read more »

It’s kind of like in that book The Lord of The Flies, about the kids stranded on the island. The smart ones convince the dumber ones that there is a monster on the island in order to gain political control of them through fear, and civil society devolves. When the kid with a sense of morality points out that the beast is just a dead man with a parachute, the bearer of the news becomes the enemy, and the whole island is torched in an attempt to kill the truth bearer. I never wanted to believe in this story until… Read more »

@ FRegistryTerrorists I’m sorry, but I’ll have to pass on your advise “Tell them to go F themselves.” I’ve seen enough YouTube videos where one cop is tasering a guy while three others beat him like a pinata filled with jelly doughnuts because he/she was being defiant. I think I’ll try a more diplomatic approach. I was questioned a lot while I was on parole about certain inane possessions, like a book (Journal) written by a guy who circumnavigated the coast of Baja California on foot. Therefore the officer from immigration and customs assumed that I was making plans on… Read more »

“Tell them to go F themselves” doesn’t have to be literal. You can be polite about it. I just won’t talk to them for any reason. I certainly won’t answer any questions.

It is great that you “don’t plan on answering intrusive questions”. I wouldn’t answer any.

Most of these guys, most likely, left town, dead or inapacitated some how. We will never know if these billboards will do any good.

I hate to glorify law breaking, but since the whole of the registry concept is a form of breaking Constitutional law and the rights of those that have otherwise paid their debt to society I see the list of those that refuse to be registered as a sort of list of Patriots and Hero’s that refuse to bow to a draconian system of tyranny. It’s actually a list of Honor NOT to have registered. TRUTH

Mike, nice comment. ITs kind of strange, but I reside in OC and haven’t had a compliance check for over a year? Anyone with similar changes to their compliance checks? Maybe they have came and I have missed them? I normally have two checks a year? (Battery/misdemeanor/expunged/non child related/summary probation)? Just curious.

You know, “compliance check” is far, far too nice of a way to phrase that nanny big government idiotic nonsense. We need to adopt some other way to describe it. I haven’t put much thought into it but perhaps something like “Registered Citizen Visitation Flaunt and Boondoggle”? I think that describes it well but it is a mouthful. It is kind of funny though and I think people would better remember it because it is a little strange. We could just use “RCVFB”. These are the definitions my dictionary has: flaunt – Display proudly; act ostentatiously or pretentiously boondoggle –… Read more »

I believe this is a little absurd. What if the person non registered is an elderly person or someone who has passed away? Or, what if the person is incarcerated in another city or state? Or, what if the person has been involved in a serious accident and is unable to? I would imagine that many of the individuals might also have left the country and perhaps went back to their own country if they are foreigners? ie: Mexico. So, it sounds like a lot of money to spend on, while there might be more important things to do with… Read more »

From what I heard the California list has alot of dead people on it…. I remember along time ago there was a write up about a mom or someone who was trying to get a love one removed from the list because he was dead… I wonder how did that turn out…

I am sure, that the US Marshall Service is running their tail all over the Country looking for these folks and may have some on billboards in Indy.

Funny you should ask about dead people…

“Sex offender billboard campaign includes two deceased men”

http://fox59.com/2014/12/09/196949/

If I were advising their families, I would consider a major lawsuit, actually.

I have a $1 bid that the rest are dead, left town or in jail.

Can they fit all 100.000 missing offenders on their Boards ? Sure would be a shame if someone threw a rock at their electronic Board. Sign company might not to picture offenders again.

Ah darn the headline got my hopes up. See I thought (silly me), that these unregistered sex offenders were people who had committed sex offenses but had not been prosecuted. I know it seems outlandish to think a community would know the identities of some individuals who committed offenses and not use the full extent of the law to enact justice. However, we humans aren’t always the most logical in arranging priorities so nothing would surprise me and I am sure stranger circumstances have existed somewhere. Reading into what this is actually about makes even less sense. Correct me if… Read more »

Most victimization comes from unconvicted friends, family, aquaintances. etc. A victim, with the same name last name as their abuser might not want their family business put on a billboard that practically forces anyone who drives by to look at and bring shame to the family and victim, might be deterred from reporting their abuse. This is not only cruel and unusual punishment for the ex-offender which is not warranted by something so uneventful as not registering on time or making some clerical error -I could see this making more sense if the person was wanted for something heinous/vicious, to… Read more »

2 weeks ago, I turned on 640AM radio, a station owned by Clear Channel, I Heart Radio. The newsbreak every 15 minutes or every half hour reported a parolee sex offender child rapist who cut off his GPS later found many miles away hiding under a mattress. He was released in April of this year from prison and absconded, I had read in a newspaper article before I heard this misleading radio newsbreak. The next newsbreak, they just called him a rapist, not a child rapist. But no corrections from the previous newsbreak. This is the same company, Clear Channel,… Read more »

This guy who was reported to have cut his GPS monitor off was not a child rapist, but a rapist whose victim was 31 years old. Why does Clear Channel, owners of 640am radio station, disregard the truth and not correct the error of their previous news report?
Maybe this was not an error, but a planned event to cause more hysteria.

Indianapolis is setting themselves up for trouble by posting pics of unregistered sex offenders!!!!! How dare you do that to anyone? Are you posting the pics of the murderers? Are you registering repeat burglars? Are you registering and “outing” unregistered sex offender politicians? Take care that you post pics like that. Your time card may get punched one last time…..
