CA: Oakland police suspend sex offender registrations during COVID-19 pandemic

Due to the threat from the coronavirus, the Oakland Police Department has closed its registry unit where many of the city’s sex offenders are required to check in every month, officials said.

Now, the city of Oakland has no up-to-date addresses or other important information on hundreds of offenders – particularly transient sex offenders – raising concerns from victims’ advocates and offenders who are trying to register alike.

“We’ve put a whole population at risk and I find that very, very concerning,” said Nina Salarno-Besselman, an attorney with Crime Victims United, a public safety and victims’ advocacy group that fought to pass California’s Megan’s Law in the 1990s. Full Article

Was wondering when this news was going to finally hit the public. As usual..people are pissed. Here comes a whole new set of laws to keep us on our knees. The noose is always tightening.

Who gives a damn if the public is pissed? This is war.

Does anyone have an update on this? How to register? I am a registrant in Oakland. My annual registration requirement is coming up and I do not want to be placed in violation and possibly arrested for failure to register. Any info is greatly appreciated. Thankyou!

Brandon ~ Call them and tell them your registration date is coming back and ask how you need to do this. If they don’t allow in person, ask them if there is a phone number to call who handles registration. Since you can register 5 days before or after your B’day, I would call 5 days before, just in case the don’t pick up, etc. BUT, call them now to see what you need to do. I googled their numbers Phone: (510) 238-3455
Non-emergency: (510) 777-3333. Or double check if there is another number. Not sure if you have to go to a certain Oakland Division.

It is so pathetic that people still think that Registries are useful in any way. I’ve been listed for over 2 decades and I guarantee that Registries have not and will not ever even slightly hinder me from committing any type of crime that I’d like. Further, because of the Registries, and only because of them, I am around children all the time. Random children, families, places, etc. and law enforcement has never had the first clue about any of it. They have no idea how and where I spend my time. It’s just amazing how worthless Registries are. Perhaps Registries would be more acceptable to people with brains if they actually did something useful. But they are so worthless and harmful that it is ridiculous. Oh well. America is dumber by the day.

Let me be blunt – Registries make me want to murder people. Like for real. They make me really, really, really want to harm people. I’m just be a regular, normal, hard working, very successful person. If Registries didn’t exist, that’s all I’d be. Except that I’d surely be a lot better citizen. But I can’t be. Because Registries exist, I’m dangerous. And not just because the Registry Supporters/Terrorists lie that I am. I am. Because of the Registries.

This article is talking about all of the problems with getting these idiotic Registrations completed during this pandemic. But it mentions numerous times that so many of the “sex offenders” having problems are “in violation” and “can be arrested and taken to jail”. I’ve promised myself that if that ever happened to me, for whatever reason, very, very bad things will happen. It’s a promise I’ll keep. They want war, they’ve got it.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
