So many misguided people. They all think an RC is the drooling pedo of Hollywood. “We have to protect our children! It’s all about the children!” What about the million of children who are adversely effected by these laws both because their relative is an RC and, in some cases, they themselves have been subject to all of this, some as young as 8?

You can’t reason with a mob. I’m very happy with have people like Janice in our corner who cut through all the BS and actually do what is right instead of what will get them reelected.

“Lawyers find loophole and sue cities,” Mintz said. “It is very frustrating.”

Just imagine how frustrated they’ll get when the SCOTUS finds the registry is PUNITIVE and ineffectual.

I don’t know which is more amusing- “Political extortion” or Janice found a loophole. He is actually losing sleep over this. Is it “for the children” thing or the wrath of the mind controlled, demented mob who always vote at reelection time. Oh well, who cares. What city is up next?

pretty pathetic…there’s that right to know statement again. hm I am having a hard time finding such a right outlined in anything..if anyone can find this illusive statute, code or authority that states the public has this “right to know ” feel free to cite it.I would like to know if it really exist. Also what about the preacher? “we need to protect the lil children” from what, no incidents have occurred to justify that statement as usual and hey pastor, so much for repentance huh? think Jesus would’ve wanted to keep punishing us for the rest of our lives? really doubt it..

Time for an editorial to the local town crier newspaper with the stats of those who truly commit crimes against children. Meaning the 90-97% of those who are first timers and within the circle of people the child knows already, not anyone else. That would shut them up and make them start suspecting their family, friends and neighbors.

I hope they are sued, taken to court and ACSOL cleans out the city’s coffers and use the money to take down the registry.

Why do I get the feeling these people would believe they were safe with a “NO TERRORIST BEYOND THIS POINT” sign at the edge of town. It’s curious and rather silly that they’re fighting to keep an ordinance that isn’t, hasn’t, and wont be enforced. But hey… whatever makes them feel cozy, until they get sued; then they’ll be crying “No fair!”.

Remember when lies have been repeated enough for everyone to believe it it’s true when it’s false? Keep bringing the truth, have strong faith, and work together with perseverance and eventually they’ll all wake up, and realize they’ve been lied to all these years which has destroy many lives and call for change, and hold those maniacs accountable.

“Luckino did say during the meeting that if sued on this matter they may have to give a “settlement,” in the case vs. fighting it.”

Nothing like calling ‘uncle’ in advance. Here ya go….


It’s amazing to me that nobody in government ever brings up the recidivism rate of other crimes say like drunk driving. Wouldn’t it be nice to know if your child is going away for the weekend with somebody who had 1,2, or maybe 3 DUI’s? It might be nice to take that into account and I doubt many parents would let there kids go knowing those kinds of details. Yet nobody would ever consider those people having to register even though it’s statistically proven that they have a higher recidivism rate and probably kill many more people, including children, a year than RC’s. Just a thought…

Why doesn’t the police tell these people the truth concerning Sex Offenders instead of telling them a bunch of lies? I remember long ago, I though I couldn’t live near parks, etc. and when I asked the Cop that did the registry check, he said due to my conviction date, I could live anywhere I want. The thing is when you get out of prison, they don hand you a guide book or anything, we have to rely on the news to figure out how to stay in compliance which only spreads more lies to the population concerning sex offenders rights.

.”Children can’t protect themselves. I’d have to side with the people. The people are saying it bothers them and they don’t feel safe.”

Does this wing-nut even realize that the city counsel can’t protect children either? Has he ever considered that they don’t need protecting? Has any of the useful idiots (people that live their) ever looked to see just how many children have been protected and saved by these restrictions? Doubtful – doubtful, and doubtful again.

Has anyone ever heard of a child being harmed in any way because someone on the registry live too close? I haven’t and I’ll bet it’s because it’s never happened.

If these people would just tell the truth to the people they wouldn’t writing Janice a check. And that exactly what they will be doing if they don’t conform to the will of all us predators – Mwah ha ha ha ha!.

“Lawyers find loophole and sue cities,” Mintz said. ” Since when is the constitution of the United States a “loophole.”?
