Police shared a community awareness post to their Facebook page emphasizing that the letter is a fake.

“The person named is this letter is NOT subject to any type of investigation, prosecution or conviction of any offense related to Megan’s Law. At first this letter may seem real however upon examination it is poorly written and constructed,” stated police.

“This is a serious offense. It’s malicious and evil.”

Yet LEOs and lawmakers think violating the privacy and safety of those made to register is NOT.


Glad I don’t live in Jersey so I can post this thought Imagine if the whole neighborhood or even the state had people getting letters about them being on the registry interesting tactic and then here’s police comments.

““We believe this letter was sent in retaliation for operating a successful business (and to prevent further growth opportunities),” police said. how’s that for admission of collateral damage

“This is a serious offense. It’s malicious and evil. ”

Oh, so its evil to be accused of being a sex offender? hmmm?

Maybe more should have that experience to know what its like!

The sex offender Registry scheme is looking more and more like punishment.

So this business owner paid his debt to society after having made a poor life choice. He met all the requirements of the justice system, has done everything right to reintegrate into society, has opened and runs a successful business which is contributing to the society, yet the government allows a registry to operate that negates all the good he has done, puts him in the public eye and portrays him as a dangerous threat–which he clearly is not–and opens him up to this harassment without providing any protection for him. Yeah, this registry is really working as it was intended, oh, and anybody with a Price Club membership goes through this too, right Mr. Kennedy?

Another collateral consequence of ” crying wolf” like SOR does! All fifty states chose; all fifty will pay.
More lawlessness usually results as attack begets retaliatory attack. Just as war mongers and lawyers would prefer.
Who would prefer mass human indenture to database maintenance that works anti-liberty in effect? The same folks who would view personal identifying information as a commodity!

I’ll say it again, this is not the first time the demo-socialist worker party has employed ” registration regimes. ” That the capitalists bought in had to do with the predictable profit potential unfettered uses of the machine provided by a “civil determination” of states indenture on mass. That choice was particularly advantageous to federal surveillance saints. J. E Hoover justified surveillance upon Rev. M. L King jr. for Christ’s sake.
