Meet a ‘Violent Sexual Predator’ and Marvel at Our Broken System for Dealing With Sex Offenders

The note in my inbox was straightforward, and suicidal: “I don’t have much time left and that brings me some comfort. I can’t even imagine a life of freedom and happiness anymore. I hope my story will at least help people understand the grey areas of this stigma.” Full Article

I hope that Michael Pascal doesn’t go through with suicide. That gives a victory to the hate mongering politicians and closed minded individuals and it won’t help our cause to rid the world of this awful and harmful registry. Michael, if you read this, know that your primary reasons not to take your life is both for your family and the good that you can do for others with the rest of your life. I have a supportive wife and two small children, and even if I may think I am a burden now, I know that I will do… Read more »

One thing I never understood is why people think that our adversaries are “keeping score” and a suicide is a victory in their column. Furthermore, if someone is strongly considering suicide it is because they have lost hope. Persuading them to choose life because death would be a “win” for an adversary is crazy. If you want to save someone from suicide you need to give them hope NOW. Giving them “what ifs” and theoretical situations years down the road will not help with the suffering they are feeling right now. I am a registrant of 7+ years and I… Read more »

1) One thing I never understood is why people think that our adversaries are “keeping score” and a suicide is a victory in their column Because, if you read the comments of the idiots after a news article about a sex offender committing suicide, they are keeping score and commenting how the world is a better place. Suicide does nothing to educate the idiots. If someone is considering suicide because they think it will help our cause, it will not and that is what I am pointing out. 2) If you want to save someone from suicide you need to… Read more »

Wow, that is hard to read. It is very, very sad for “Mikey” and a gross, filthy, disgusting miscarriage of justice. The politicians that inflict this kind of unjustified misery on others deserve nothing but the same for themselves. When I see them (politicians, bureaucrats, law enforcement, etc.) crash and burn and become victims of the policies and laws they support I do the happy dance with great exultation, shouting “Eat it!” When I hear stories about the young man in the article linked above I want to scream at the top of my lungs Sam Kinison-style – this is… Read more »

This is such a sad story but probably one of so many more like it. I liked the comment about making it illegal and a crime to be Human. So true! Most people watch R rated movies and find nothing wrong with sex scenes. Is that abnormal? Absolutely not and just human nature. Does that mean these people are our future rapists? I sure hope not as we would all be future rapists. Just like watching violent movies does not make us killers. When will this false hysteria end? When will people stop being stupid and become educated? “Make America… Read more »

I think we’re creating a society where men must be afraid of interacting with women. I personally keep a wedding ring on my finger as a sign that I’m not available to date. When a woman can destroy a man’s life with just an unfounded accusation of anything improper or when a woman under the influence can forget that she consented to sex, it becomes no longer worth the risk to interact with women.

I support carsol…. You are so right! I’ve learned its a healthy paranoia. Crazy as it sounds I deliberately stay far away from females and cling to my wife of 20 years.

How this guy got on the predator list is hard to fathom. And this happened in his own home too but even there, I guess the law says visitors have the right to a certain amount of privacy…especially in the bathroom. Being on the registry is not worth ending your life. It could have been a lot worse Michael like serving a prison sentence or having a felony on your record. Plus you don’t have kids and your fiance stuck by you. Try and learn a trade instead of working in a warehouse. Your fiance may even support you while… Read more »

It seems like a real stretch for any court to determine that taking a photo is a direct correlation to a person being a sexually violent predator. This is akin to taking a shotgun to kill an ant. I do not understand how that can happen. I do understand how suicide looks like a peaceful solution. No hope leads to that conclusion. Choosing to live as Mikey describes for the rest of your life is choosing pain every day. I am sure that he does not want to end his life, but does not want to live the rest of… Read more »

When ever hope has left the room there are still choices if we choose to see them. We have numbers that are growing daily and have a list (the registry) to rally our troops from. We oddly can’t directly view it but many others not on the registry can resource those on the registry to encourage and support. Our hope is in each other forward into the fight and together we will prevail. It only took a handful of registrants lead by Janice and the staff of California RSOL to beat back the demons set against us and our rights… Read more »

Way to go Robert!

Let’s hope we find a solution before our numbers have grown enough that you can form a million man march on the White House. That may be the only way to get the publicity this needs. Let’s also hope Michael is strong enough to get through this and be a part of whatever the solution might be.
