The Myth and the Propaganda of Halloween and Registered Sex Offenders

3 weeks from today is Halloween 2016 and in about 2 weeks I’ll post my annual Do’s and Don’ts list for RSO’s in Virginia on Halloween.

Over the years of advocating for data-driven laws and reform here I’ve learned the worst time of year for Myth-Based and Hysteria-Driven articles, policies and laws is Halloween. Halloween can be more emotionally draining than the annual Virginia General Assembly in Richmond.

We live in a sad place, I mean I grew up watching the twilight zone and the fears that people can fall prey too, and the worst episodes were of mass hysteria. It’s a fact, Halloween is one of the safest nights in this country for those who trick & treat. The biggest danger is idiots driving and running over and into them.

In the name of fear based safety these phobia driven people for their own benefit are destroying every significant culturally acceptable American event there is. When are people going to realize they are being manipulated to give away their rights to enjoy life.

I want an acceptable answer from someone who has the legal duty to uphold our laws to explain why they are allowing these non American fear fanatics to make a mockery of our nation. I can just imagine what other countries think of us now. Look at whats happening in the Phillipines, they basically told us to go to hell because we have no moral authority to say anything.

How can we continue to claim we represent the land of the free and the brave, when we permit slavery, deny people every constitutional right, and our legal system continues to allow these fear fanatics the opportunity to pass laws and ordinances they know are unconstitutional? Regulating products, animals, etc., may be legal, but regulating human behavior that requires a person to tell anyone everything they want to know can only be defined as slavery or non-citizenship. No one who thinks could deny this, and yet judges claim it is legal.

Now its easy to understand why people in this country are easily misled, the law is meaningless. Irrespective of the outcome of all of the effort to overturn these laws and it’s success, the damage has been done, and it is extensive. To those who still think the law and the Constitution mean anything, I give them respect, as for the rest, well they will be responsible for the destruction of this country.

My court ordered conditions of probation do not include “house arrest on Halloween” but guess what..

2004 Halloween was my first year. NY had just introduced some stupid make-us-feel-good laws. Since this was my 1st year on probation I had to sign all sorts of waivers and hand over my rights to the probation dept.

I knew they were coming ‘on a visit’ so I had some friends for dinner. Luckily I live in the best part of NYC, a very formal apt and we sat in the dining room. The table was laid as if it was Thanksgiving. My friends were there to support me. That moment we all dread happened and in they all came with their black gloves and stupid faces. I had signed that I would not have any candy or treats etc outside my door and no Halloween signs.
There they were. The goons staring at the classy intelligent people who just sat chatting away as if they did not exist. Suddenly a PO officer screams ”Candy!!!” She put her fat hand into the middle of the dining table and grabbed a tiny dish filled with after-dinner mints. I told them they were welcome to eat them but they pompously said ‘Oh No. These need to be destroyed.”
This is what we are dealing with.

Mother always said ‘living well is the best revenge’… kudos to you, Sir!

Lol yea treat them like they treat us, they don’t matter, and they don’t. Freaking Nazis, u just can’t get rid of them, lol. I wonder how many crimes they’ve committed and were allowed to get away with it.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
