JACKSON COUNTY, Fla. (PRESS RELEASE) – Effective immediately, all sex offenders moving into Jackson County will have their picture, address, offender status, and certain information regarding their crime(s) posted on the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page.
Sexual predators moving into the area, as well as those relocating within the county, will also be posted.
This measure is not for punitive purposes, but to better insure the safety of our most vulnerable citizens.
A plague upon all of their houses. May those who revel in such barbarity suffer a slow and painful death.
Wow. So now the local PD is willingly broadcasting to the world on Facebook who’s a registrant in their area. That sounds eerily like shaming in a public square as opposed to people going to the PD to find out who’s who, which is the 2003 Smith v Doe dissenters said the world wide web is like a public square and shaming is a form of traditional punishment.
Terrible to continue to trample on people’s civil rights. I hope Fla compares this exercise to the original 2003 Smith v Doe standard. Or maybe something that Janice can use at a federal level.
Most of the general public are going to support this measure because they think this is going to benefit greatly through the delusion of being safe, when it’s all political, with no one daring to take a chance and courage to step up to the plate and say to them “No, we are against this because this will endanger the lives of those on the registry who are trying to live better lives, and the purpose of these notifications that they want, is to continue the punishment after they’ve paid their debt to society.
Of course, when you label people with a scary and horrendous name such as ‘sexual predator’ you can treat them and their families as sub human. In reality, most child molesters don’t stalk children but usually get caught up in a moment of opportunity and irrational thinking.
Another good example why certain cowardly bullies with a badge need to be defunded.
So, who is asking the good sheriff what safety he thinks he’s providing by doing this so they can be informed of the stats? Is FAC down there going to so he can be on record of his thinking?
Shaming alerts or scamming alerts. Janice much of this is sounding more like a two wrongs don’t make a right in vain type of safety ordeal. So where is the spiritual understanding.Where is the value in shaming of this vigilante type safety factor in this domino effect. Who is humilating or making one ashamed. Were is the psychology in or even the rehibilition factor. Might as well say there’s a person with a gun living in one’s area and to warn others or a massuage parlor down the street for wealthy men or is their a beer joint right across the street from a school.
The framers of the Constitution were God-fearing men making a sincere attempt to establish a new nation on biblical principles, It defines our most fundamental freedoms in general such as freedom of speech due process laws free exercise of religion equal protections under the law and cruel and unusual punishment. One wonders were the right of Conscience comes into play in this ordeal in this persuasive game.
Do we praise the Lord for such wisdom, knowledge and understanding or man for their wisdom? Is man belittling or betray in much of this offender game. If authorities have to use deceptive devices such as this what does that tell you about man’s government in these matters I’m sure their would be less confusion but money is a big factor in much of this game Look at how much pays for leg monitoring, for these sex class programs, fines and other things.
We’re not allowed on Facebook…but that’s where this will be posted. Guess some registered citizens will be on Facebook after all.
*** This measure is not for punitive purposes, but to better insure the safety of our most vulnerable citizens. ***
So all politicians and law enforcement need to say is “this is not for punitive purposes” to create a high threshold to disprove.
Remember how in California there was residency and presence restrictions? Wasn’t that considered “not for punitive purposes”? Then it’s ruled unconstitutional.
In Ca, 1203.4 helped registrants de-register automatically. Yet, if you read comments online about stopping de-registration from 1203.4 and pushing it to the CoR, the politicians and law enforcement say they didn’t want to make it easier to get off the registry. Thus, they’re creating hardship just because.
hmmmm… I wonder if those comments were in any legal case? I’ve read so much throughout the years.
I am relieved to hear that it is not punitive.
I’m certain that caning in Singapore is merely “instructional”. 😏
