Any doubt that he was targeted, bound, tortured, and murdered because he was a registered citizen? No doubt in my mind. When will lawmakers see that this kind of sex offender registry collateral damage is not acceptable.

When will they get it? Another person killed. A brother, husband, and/or father taken from their family.

This breaks my heart that this is happening.

Just another reason why the public has no business knowing anything about a person.
He served his time. The system released him. Now let him live his life.

So some vigilante decided that 7 years in prison wasn’t punishment enough.

The article states that he “Attempted to molest a child”. Attempted?
They didn’t go into details…but does this deserve the Death Penalty?

You don’t get beat to a pulp and left in a closet for selling someone a bad auto part.
The writing is on the wall…that someone didn’t want Reginald Locke alive.

This type of news is a HUGE problem with the SOR and everything about it screams



In addition. This is just another case of the need for a RSO to be allowed to carry a firearm for the protection of himself as well as his family.

Once one has served their time, along with parole/probation, we as citizens need to have a means to defend ourselves.


I agree 100% ,I am in a very dangerous life right now , as well as my family, and IF I was to use a gun to protect my family or my self I would be looking at yet more prison time , the reason this man is dead is because people think that the SOR site is prime time , this needs to stop , because I can see that it will get bloody , and not just for the RSO,s , but they are going to keep pushing , and you watch and see some RSO is going to go all the way off and do some crazy shyt to the people that are messing with him or her , and that will be all over the news , every day for year , and of course they will have to name some laws after some dumb ass that should have just left them alone

I think we all need to follow whats happening right now with gun control in our country with the the current terrorist situation in orlando. We need to be ready to respond. Republicans and Democrats cannot agree on any gun control measures, even stopping terrorist suspects from purchasing guns. Democrats are so desperate to pass some form of control legislation. A congressmen from New York has recently proposed restricting ALL registered sex offenders from legally owning a gun. While it has so far gone nowhere, I can see democrats supporting this measure because even republicans might be in favor of this bill, they are desperate to show constituents some results. Who do republicans hate more then terrorists? Probably sex offenders.
I’m a registered citizen and have my CWP and a legally purchased fire arm and while i’m actually a strong advocate for gun control, meaning i support a complete BAN across the board, I know this will never happen so If every pyscho out their can own a gun, I sure as hell will own one too. Fortunately I’m allowed to own a gun but I know the majority of sex offenders cannot because of felony charges, which probably makes them more of a target then me, i feel for them.
While I value my life very much, I also value my fiancee and dogs life more as they have offered and showed me unconditional love and have made me forget that i’m an RSO most of the time. Protecting them is my priority.

A felony conviction is the biggest impediment to RSOs owning firearms. Similarly convicted felons can’t get their voting rights restored in some states. However, an RSO convicted of a misdemeanor makes life a lot easier.

Now there is some hope for offenders with felonies. As long as you weren’t convicted of a federal crime, some states allow a convicted felon to remove their “disability” from firearm ownership. Pennsylvania is one of those states and it just doesn’t apply to long guns. Pistols are allowed in Pennsylvania for convicted felons.

Traditionally I’ve also been a strong advocate of gun control until close family members got caught up in the sex offender registration trap. Now I’ve done some soul searching and rethought my position because there are too many nutty vigilantes out there who pose a threat to family members

Once the lame assed govt gets sued for this for being liable maybe the law will be changed !

Attempted? Meaning a Perverted Justice sting? Just have a seat right there so we can kill you.

As usual, the comments under the story are appalling.

This sickens me. I live in fear each day and so do my family members. My mom worries all of the time and if I don’t return her call within a day, she gets sick. I hate living like this. I’m a productive member, yet I can’t enjoy it as I’m always watching my back. My offense was attempt as well, but I was quick to take a plea because my attorney scared me and said I could face life in prison. Afterwards, I knew that wouldn’t be possible.

I decided to come back to school to get my undergraduate degree, yet I’m not sure what good that will do. I hate feeling like this every day. My heart goes out to everyone that has to register as well as their loved ones.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
