    Bold move, and I’m fully behind him in spirit. Even if he doesn’t get out of registration, if he can show deceit and corruption and get a few of the “good guys” thrown into the pokey, it’ll be time well spent. I’m absolutely stunned that even allegations of such could happen in the upstanding, Great State of Illinois.*

    *Having some time ago lived there for some time, I know full well the depth and breadth of corruption present at every level of government there. Heck, I even used it to my advantage now and again! 😀

      Like I said, corruption broad and deep: https://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/breaking/ct-met-alderman-ed-burke-charges-20190103-story,amp.html

      This guy (a cop before becoming an alderman) has long been known as a crooked politician, but they could never get him. Ooops, he got careless…buh bye.

      Illinois is in the red big-time! And that doesn’t even count the underfunded public servant pension plans. Illinois is like Detroit in that the public service employees serves themselves the most to public tax dollars. I live just across their both border and we’ve seen waves of folks fleeing into our state for our snap, Adc, and other child welfare programs. Free cheese was the appeal in the 70s &80s.
      Gun crime and gangs are real issues in every large city in the state. Chasing perverts gives them the appearance they need to sustain their credibility when factually they PREVENT very little real violence.

      This whole boondoggle has ALWAYS been about government USES of a database. The sex offender was a scapegoat for burgeoning federal electronic surveillance saints! You must admit domestic electronic surveillance is in play.

    I do hope this at least brings some publicity to the harms of the registry.

    I fully expect the usual denial of justice since he is pro se where the judge will dismiss everything and say he failed to specify the actual evidence of injuries that would be remedied, is suing the wrong people and they are immune, and just toss in some references to Smith v doe and be done.

    Hope he uses some of @miker’s work to assist his efforts here. They might learn something beyond the brown bag shaped in a brick of C-notes. Just sayin’

    I would think he’d do better with some support from the various advocacy groups. This guy is clearly a free thinking leader of men. I’ve opted for trial twice before n failure to provide information, my argument to the jury?? I never tossed away my right to remain silent and the state of Wisconsin may not and do not have , “Vaaays duf making me talk.”
    I was innocent in the 1 sex case in 1992 and demanded trial by jury. I thought they NEEDED evidence…..I WAS WRONG!. I do not have benefit of DNA. At least no comparison was ever attempted cause it was so long ago.
    My point is it he makes any headway he won’t be doing it alone. I’m going to do my best to contact the guy and offer to help! Guilty of not.
