City Council takes action on sex offender ordinance

Canyon Lake, CA – California has the highest rate of sexual offenders in the nation. The Sexual Predator Punishment and Control Act, also known as Jessica’s Law, was passed by California voters on November 7, 2006. One of the major provisions of Proposition 83 limits where sex offenders may live. This measure prohibits any person required to register as a sex offender from living within 2,000 feet of any school or park. Full Article

    “The Sexual Predator Punishment and Control Act, also known as Jessica’s Law”…

    Hey Courts, the very title of this acts states that it’s intended as Punishment…what does that do to the “Ex Post Facto civil requirements are ok as long as they’re not intended to be punitive” argument?

      Intent, inshment. That word is only used to make ignorance sound legit. Suppose there was a decree that restricted all ships from traveling near the horizon, because it was the intent to keep them from falling off the edge of the earth (medieval Europe). Or supposed we had a policy that placed all Muslims under surveillance, because it was the intent to stop terrorism (post 9/11 New York). How about placing all Japanese Americans in internment camps because the intent was to thwart spies on American soil (WWII America) or applying segregation laws to colored people, because the intent was to protect the white female population (1960’s Southern States).
      Noble Intent. Ah, it is always the first and foremost excuse used by the powerful to take away the freedoms of the powerless. In the end truth subordinates intent, the complex truths concerning those labeled sex offender will thread their way through the web of public opinion and become a strong strand of common knowledge, but unfortunately, it won’t happen until after a lot of people are needlessly harmed.

        “A lot of people” couldn’t by chance include 105,000 registrants and their families could it? The fact these laws harm innocent children and ostracize them in their school and social lives is the type of state sanctioned child abuse that politicos will never own up to, much less apologize for.

        These are Jim Crow laws that are based on the premises that ignorance creates fear and fear breeds hate. Sadly, they have this down to a science as evidenced by these local ordinances that enable abuse of registrants and their families, without regard for the extensive body of state law, societal integration and inherent constitutional rights.

    If these laws actually served some purpose in preventing crimes, people like this would be giving examples of when and where they have done so. The fact that they cannot is very significant.
    By trying to frighten the public into imagining there is a “bogeyman” out there, they merely seek to justify their positions and salaries. Many of these salaries need to be lowered; many of these positions, eliminated. We don’t need to pay people to scare us to death for nothing. If there existed a real threat, the SOMB board would already be acting on it, and that would take care of the matter.

    “There is no question that these two laws save lives.”? Apparently the author of this article has never heard of or considered all the registrants that have been murdered, attacked, had their wives and children harassed and ostracized, had their extended family socially molested in every way imaginable, simply because they are required to register and have had their private information made public when Megan’s law was enacted. It seems to me these laws are civil and moral rights violations.

    “As of February 2, 2015, there are 82,797 registrants on the Megan’s Law website. This number does not include the total of number of registrants that are NO Post or Excluded. There are 16,014 registrants in violation.”

    GOOD GOD!!!! If this isn’t an argument for a tiered registry and a registry where former offenders who don’t re-offend are automatically removed over time, then I don’t know what the hell is!!!!!
    I’m not a math whiz, but according to those numbers, 20% of California’s registrants are absconders!!!!
    This thing is broken and does no good for ANYONE!!!!!
