    The Media makes it sound like an either or proposition. Protecting children isn’t an issue due to there not being any history of registrants ever violating against children in parks. I’m disappointed but not surprised on how the media spun the reasoning around that it’s somehow about protecting children when the real children at risk are those of registered sex offenders that are disallowed being with their children in public places like parks. I personally saved my son’s life twice because I was there to do so. Children have been known to having accidence in parks whether from falling from a tree or choking on a hot dog. To take a child’s first line of protection (their parent) out of the situation is unconscionable. I appear before the Orange County Supervisors on this subject on 05-08-2012 under public comments. Below click the tab for that date and scroll down to the end of meeting at public comments I’m the first presenter:

  2. Ostracized Witch

    Janice orchestrated a significant rally to raise awareness over the unfair AND unconstitutional restrictions imposed upon Registered citizens.

    She is our advocate to end the imposed cruelty and bring common sense to laws restricting the lives of offenders convicted of a crime of a sexual nature, many who have minor offenses NOT involving kids.

  3. Q

    Oh boy! Here we go again; why don’t these news people ever use Frank’s full statement? I know the rest of the statement had to do with important truths/facts. This is also done to Janice, and I can’t help feeling Robert had some truthful, important and relevant things to say too. This is how the media controls your opinion (omissions and words); what you think and what you believe. Not so much with registrants, but the sheeple are just that!

    Thank you Janice and everyone else involved in yesterdays protest. Watching this brought a tear to my eye. I know now more than ever that there is hope, and that I am not alone. I wish I could have been there. Let’s prey this is the beginning of a turning of the tide in regards to attitudes and policies towards reformed former sex offenders. Keep up the good work, and keep fighting the good fight.

    I was just about to send these pictures to my best friend of many decades who lives out in the desert, has a successful small business and I found he had already sent this to me! He had called me early this morning, distressed and worried because he saw my picture in the Los Angeles Times. What follows is my email response to him –

    HAHAHA!!! I was just going to send this to you.

    Get off my HOMEPAGE, a-hole!

    Seriously, lucky for you, you have nothing to do with me in everyday life and
    needn’t explain your buddy to anyone. This is going to get much more intense I
    believe. I think this is my “purpose”. You know that this is not an easy
    mountain I’ve been climbing. But you also know that no one is seriously going to
    be thrilled having to engage me in a debate of logic. I weslcome the challenge.

    Here’s the deal. Is there ANY WAY to defend or minimize what I did? No. I’m not
    trying to. I Never will. If someone looks at me and says “I fucking HATE you
    because of what you did”, my response would be,

    “Yeah, I get that. I can’t blame you. It’s all you know about me. How could you
    not hate me? But what you don’t know is everything I have done in the 40 years
    since it happened.

    “You don’t know about how I’ve lived – a hard working, tax paying citizen, not
    reoffending, getting married and staying that way for 26 years, then divorced
    but remaining best of friends with my Ex, raising my own boy and girl, now 31
    years old and 26, assisting in raising various nephews and nieces, all adults
    now who love and respect me and thank me for my influence in their lives, some
    who still live with me as adults despite having good jobs, just wanting to be
    with me and not let me be a solitary old man going through your hatred alone.

    “You also don’t know, or haven’t given thought to, the fact that I and all other
    Registered Citizens have served their time as the courts saw fit and that any
    new Ex Post Facto laws that are passed which punish or restrict us are entirely
    against the ideals of our Constitution – which I assume you love and revere. Do
    you realize that THOUSANDS of my fellow registered citizens, who suffer as badly
    as I do – or worse, were convicted of relatively minor offenses? Do you really
    think it is legitimate to have people suffering literally for life, due to looking
    in a neighbors window, having intimate relations with a 17 year old girlfriend when
    they were 21, viewing a forbidden webpage online, or urinating on a tree in the
    park? So how about we join sides in a fight to save the country”?

    Bob, what have I got? Not all that much. They can’t take away the love of my
    kids. I showed the Los Angeles Times to both of them and their reaction was – go
    for it Dad! We have your back!

    That’s all I need, Bob.

    So, Fuck ’em (not the KIDS! “Them”).

    By the way, if you scroll through various comments threads at CA RSOL you will
    find my comments under “John B”. I Think I’m going to use my last name from now
    on. You have inspired me. Thanks for 46 years of sticking by me.

    From Your Best Friend For Life.

    ===========================================

    So that’s it. I’m with you guys and gals. Just let me know what you need to help.

    • nathan

      John, you are among friends here.
      Don’t waste time on people that have nothing to do with you.
      Enjoy LIFE !!

      • Tired of hiding

        Yes, by all means enjoy life! Just do it as long as that doesn’t include international travel and seeing the wonders of the world because the US government is betraying you and sending your information and telling other countries to NOT allow you entry into their countries!

    • Timmr

      Hi John, I too don’t blame people for hating the crime I did, but there is no reason to blame me for what I have done since, or even before. I found it nearly impossible to get a job from someone, but I was able to hang on by being self employed. After the offense and with the support of my wife and children, I was able to buy a house, keep it during the downturn and remain offense free, dispite society doing everything to disrupt my life and keep me labeled a criminal. Both my youngest son and my middle daughter are graduating from college this comming year and my oldest daughter has been indespensible in running my business. My kids are in their twenties now and they don’t drink, smoke or take drugs (well my oldest takes a glass of wine now and then). It’s not all roses, but without the registry life would be very good. To those who say we are monsters and should be locked up for the rest of our lives, “who made you perfect, that you can pass judgement on people you think you know?”

      • Joe

        Your own home, no boss, a supportive wife and a handful of well-adjusted children…. registry notwithstanding, some might say you have it all! At least something a large percentage of people will never have.

        At the end of the day, living well is the best revenge!

  6. Hookscar

    I totally agree!!! This action and web site have lifted my spirits. I am a RC of 16 years. Just turned 50 in fact and have a 12 year old son. If you figure I was an adult at 18, I will have been a registrant half my adult life.
    One thing I have noticed though is 50 showed up. A good start, but I think more presence is needed. Since we cannot look up our own registry or of any others, I think that Janice and her team might want to look into looking up the addresses of individuals that are registered and send them out fliers. I did not know that there was a group that could help. I found this sight by accident. The problem seems that people of RC status do not know. I think if this implemented we would have a greater turnout, greater web traffic and higher donations.
    I found this site 4 weeks ago. I can see a light of a 16 year tunnel that was cold, damp and downright scary at times. Janice has given me the one thing the government has tried to take.
    HOPE

  7. Anonymous Nobody

    The only coverage in the Sunday Los Angeles Times was buried in the B section, on B6 (left hand page), at the bottom. It was only a pic with a short caption, not a story. A good size pic, but I am disappointed that they did not choose one showing the overall participation but instead chose one that made it look like just a handful of people is all there was, and just standing around looking bored. A line of 50 people marching with signs would have made a much more impressive picture and fuller report. But then, the Times has not been friendly to us for quite some time. Gee, to me the pic looks like they were more intent on picking a photo that showed the faces of sex offenders than in showing the crowd that participated — and they specifically named two of the people in the photo.

    I have uploaded the pic to:
