It should be remembered that, states that are not substantially compliant with Adam Walsh act are excluded from these grants.

In other words, the justice department is wasting 13 million dollars of taxpayer money on a program that has shown no demonstrable benefit to public safety.

Our State Dept. donates millions each year to foreign countries (i.e. Philippines) under the IACAT program. This year alone was $3.5 mil pledged so they can stay Tier 1 complaint. Now that’s a waste of money.

I left a comment on the source site but of course they don’t post comments. Sigh. My comment: “These grants give jurisdictions across the country the resources they need to build a viable sex offender registration and notification infrastructure, and protect their citizens from dangerous predators,” said Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General Matt M. Dummermuth. “In addition, sharing and using the more complete sex offender information between jurisdictions is critical to keeping our communities safe.” FALSE, FALSE, FALSE!

Great comment. Great to try to post it at the source article where people will see it.

$13 million seems like a complete nothing amount of money. I don’t think any Nanny Big Government (NBG) can do squat with that measly sum. Ha ha, that’s damn funny. I love watching them flounder.

The name of the NBG office is “NOT-SMART” though. I still need to determine what the “NOT” part stands for however. Or perhaps it could just be “not-SMART”. Nice stylization, I think.

Can I apply for some of his money to purchase my new passport once my existing one is revoked?

R M > Great comment!!

The “SMART” office should be called Not-So-Smart…

…and I thought that the U.S. Marshalls were supposed to be the ‘best of the best.’

I guess all types of all enforcement are all corrupt.

Can’t believe I used to trust law enforcement.

In the end, all cops are all crooked thugs that deserve no respect whatsoever.

I think i need 13 Mil for what they have done to me !

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
