Making the Case Against Banishing Sex Offenders

Mary Sue Molnar estimates that she gets at least five calls a week from Texans on the sex offender registry who can’t find a place to live. Numerous towns around the state have passed ordinances prohibiting those on the list from residing within a certain distance — anywhere from 500 to 3,500 feet — of a school, park, daycare facility or playground. In some towns, that’s almost everywhere. “We’ve got people living in extended-stay motels,” says Molnar, who runs the sex-offender-rights group Texas Voices for Reason and Justice. “We’re in a crisis mode.” Full Article

No one needs to make a case, u.s.citizens have a constitutional contract thats supposed to make banishment illegal until it is changed legally. The simplicty of ending this nonsense is to uphold the law, nothing more is necesssary. I would like to banish all of these right and left wing crusaders for being treasonous traitors who are making an embarrassment of the laws of this country. And send them to a communist or fasist nation where they belong.

It’s amazing, that after years of articles denouncing the false info and quotes used in Smith V Doe 2003 that those are still being used and relied on to thwart any legal action by sex offenders to stop residency restrictions: This is a current case mentioned in the article where the city is trying to get it dismissed. Seriously, can’t the plaintiff’s attorney say something against this motion to dismiss or counter the city’s claims of the residency restrictions being justified??? Their data is cited from 1977-2003, and most of it was just opinions of those with an alternate… Read more »

There should be a rebuttal filing to this motion of dismissal. If there is a rebuttal filing, the current and more correct data should be presented to counter the defendant’s incorrect and outdate data. They could also cite the recent 6th Circuit Court ruling in favor of RCs. This filing could also be rebutted in the newspaper by others with the current and more correct data. Judges do read newspapers and see what is out there. What is interesting is the defendant’s state they plaintiffs don’t live in the child protected zone. DUH! You want them to break the law,… Read more »

That filing was from 2012. Four years ago. The plaintiffs appealed and the appeal went all the way to the 5th circuit. The court ruled on the issue of standing saying that the plaintiffs did not have to break the law in order to suffer harm. They sent the case back down to the district court for trial. There, the magistrate ruled against the plaintiffs saying no rights had been violated. The plaintiffs appealed again and were recently heard by the 5th circuit. That ruling is still pending. The case was represented by Richard Gladden, probably the closest Texas has… Read more »

Thanks WantsToHelp, I would like to participate.

Unfortunately, the latest even I see on the web site is from 2 years ago.

How do I find out about anything coming up in the DFW area?

For safety and privacy, they don’t announce the times or locations publicly. However, the contact info on the Texas Voices website is current and if you call or email someone will get back with you. If it takes a little while, just be patient. As far as I know, Mary Sue (the driving force behind Texas Voices) carries the lion’s share of the volunteer work and it can sometimes get her snowed under. It’s an active community and a solid network, just none of it is really public.

Heres the rebuttal to this case. The scrotus has no authority to take away the plaintiffs contractual rights. The scrotus only has authority to determine whether or not the laws are constitutional. See u.s. constitution. No citizen of the united states can lose any rights except when being punished, see 13th amendment. A compelling interest does not give the scrotus authority to take away a persons rights. To require a u.s. citizen to register and be exposed to constant imprisonment is not only slavery but is also torture, and beyond any societal norm. Any person who would subject u.s. citizens… Read more »
