Cost Effective & Finance 101

US debt 20+ trillion, makes a lot of sense when you have programs such as this where money in truth is just “tossing it out the window”
Fiscal Year:
Solicitation Title:
SMART FY 18 Adam Walsh Act Implementation Grant Program
Estimated Program Funding: Up to $14,000,000.00
Estimated Award – Average Amount: Up to $400,000.00
Estimated Number of Awards: Up to 50

Above as you can see average amount in total dollars per 50 awards (states ??) 400 million. I guess compared to the 22.5 billion for body cameras it would be cost effective…lol

Below is just part of the 2018 budget for doj spending. When speaking of finance 101, isn’t it a given one should not spend wildly if you don’t have the funds. All I have posted here are items that, I see, are unnecessary spending when you don’t have it to spend. It is not all inclusive though, you can see more for yourselves at

This may not be tossing it out the window but still?

Sounds like fear and intimidation is trying to make this judge change his mind and manipulate him. I say be strong and stand for what he believes in and persevere.

The political class quickly came to realize the usefulness of databases (not just SOR,but many other govt databases) to maintain their positions in our system. It became necessary given the large amount of debt being generated by overblown budgets to utilize them for full effect. If it were a private company we’re discussing then natural selection would occur forcing economic collapse via bankruptcy. However, we’re discussing something outside of that regulated by natural law, we call it politics. Much of what occurs in politics is deal making. You scratch my back and I will reciprocate. Lawyers call it quid pro quo. “Quid” being the English term for money. Lawyers thrive in times like these. The rest of us will not.

The oral arguments from this mornings Millard, et al arguments at the Tenth Circuit are now available at:

Look at this crap and lies with absolutely no citation or any inkling of proof of this,
“Those most likely to commit sex crimes are
convicted sex offenders. Decades of research have shown that convicted sex offenders
are more likely to commit sex crimes than any other group.”

This is a joke but they have gave me some insight into how the AGs may try to attack a decision on appeal in my case. Especially on how non state actors must be acting in concert with the state. This is interesting and requires further research….The only thing they do not cite any SCOTUS case for this but only the 10th circuit.
“While courts may find that private parties’ conduct constitutes state action under
Section 1983 where private parties (a) are coerced by the State, (b) act in a public
function, or (c) act in concert with the State to deprive someone of a constitutional
right, Wittner v. Banner Health, 720 F.3d 770 775-81 (10th Cir. 2013), Plaintiffs have not
argued and provide no evidence that the private conduct alleged here falls within any
of these categories.”

Judicial Notice is mandatory and I will make it happen. Here are some facts and not from academia either… These reports, and the millions of others I have, also rebuke the assertions that the registries are working as there has been no change from before or after implementation…
And before anyone (USA, lol) goes crying about how this may ruin this site, remember how many people agreed that this type of collaboration is useful and appreciated. Also, this is all relevant to the article at issue.
Patrick A. Langan et al., Recidivism of Sex Offenders Released from Prison in 1994, BUREAU OF JUSTICE STATISTICS (2003):
“Within the first 3 years following release from prison in 1994, [] The rate for all 9,691 sex offenders (a category that includes the 4,295 child molesters) was 2.2%.” [p. 1] visited on November 15, 2018.

Criminal Recidivism in Alaska:
Alaska Judicial Council January 2007
Recidivism in Alaska Executive Summary: “Sexual offenders were the least likely to commit the same offense again.”
“Among all released offenders “9% were convicted in 1999 of Sexual offenses (sexual assaults, sexual abuse of a minor, various levels of seriousness).” p. 3. “Sexual offenders were the group least likely to be convicted of the same type of offense that
they were convicted of in the 1999 sample.” [p. 8]. “Offenders whose 1999 felony charges resulted in conviction of a Sexual offense were among the least likely to be re-arrested, have new cases filed, be re-convicted, or return to custody.” [p. 12] visited on November 15, 2018.

From Justice Policy Institute.
“Registries and notification have not been proven to protect communities from sexual offenses and may even distract from more effective approaches. Given the enormous fiscal costs of implementing SORNA, coupled with the lack of evidence that registries and notification make communities safer, states should think carefully before committing to comply with SORNA.” [Pp 1]. visted on November 15, 2018.

Under reporting,
David Finkelhor et al., Sexually Assaulted Children: National Estimates & Characteristics, JUVENILE JUSTICE BULLETIN 8 (Aug. 2008).
“Using proxy interviews to obtain information on crime victimization and other sensitive topics has never been a preferred methodology and has sometimes yielded poor results” [p 10]. Visited on November 15, 2018.

Man I have a huge list of this. I will not attempt to put more on here but you people get the point. I really hope the attorneys in that case rebuke the assertions…

I read the comments over on FAC. It seems the feeling is universal about “our” attorney’s performance. Based on some of the comments over there, a number of people don’t understand the role and function of the Court of Appeals. It is not a re-trial of the case, it’s a way to see if the Circuit Court made the right decision based on the evidence and Constitution. The Judges gave CO’s attorney a little reminder on that at the end of argument.

In truth, I wonder how much argument really helps. In this case, it doesn’t seem it did…for either side. The Judges challenged CO on its reading of Section 1983’s applicability here, and they also challenged Millard’s counsel on the applicable Amendments and harms. Neither attorney shone well.
