IN: WATCH NOW: Lake County, Indiana, Sheriff’s Sgt. Bryan Kersey conducts sex offender checks

[kenoshanews.com – 11/20/20]

Ride Shotgun with Lake County, Indiana sheriff’s Sgt. Bryan Kersey as he checks to ensure convicted Northwest Indiana sex offenders are complying with state sex-offender registry laws. This special episode of “Riding Shotgun with NWI Cops” was filmed recently in conjunction with a Midwest reporting project titled, “Out of the Shadows: Spotlight on Sex Crimes.” The special report will span multiple newspapers throughout Lee Enterprises’ Midwest news agencies and will be taking a deep look at sex crimes, the offenders, their victims and the effectiveness of state laws and justice systems in dealing with the issue. “Riding Shotgun with NWI Cops” is an ongoing video series produced by The Times of Northwest Indiana. Video filmed by Kale Wilk and produced by Scotia White.

Did you notice what he said at 6:10 in the recording about “a lot of them just wanting to get back to a normal life”? Yet they spent the entire video up to that point making it seem like most of the registrants are breaking the law.

Well, at least that last few seconds is progress. A few years ago I’m sure he would not have admitted it.

Is this the new version of Cops? “Watch you going do when we come for you; be compliant or you’ll be a bad guy. Society has no brains and this will drive them insane. Anything to pass more laws and you’ll never have a normal life.” Don’t see how this will be a good thing. Now cops will drive to registrants home with a village idiot riding shotgun along with their gun.

Yep, “riding shotgun” in the literal, historical sense.

Must be a slow news cycle with Covid and Presidential election drama all over or they want something to compete with the drama to raise their reading rates with this self-made special series. Time to flood the media company with the facts and data.

Ok, had a little extra time this morning, so it was spent breaking down this scintillating (heavy on the sarcasm”) video: I. 0-46 (seconds) is spent explaining Operation Deployment Density- In this segment we are taught that if there are more people in a concentrated area it is easier to “visit” more people than if the individuals in question are spread across a larger swath of real estate. Thank you Professor LEO for that breathtaking slice of population analysis. II. 47 – 1:03 – In this segment we are actually provided with the only piece of data: There are 659… Read more »

“…and will be taking a deep look at sex crimes, the offenders, their victims and the effectiveness of state laws and justice systems in dealing with the issue.” LOL. No seriously!? They’re kidding, right?? Will they mention the ineffectiveness of the Registries at reducing the occurrence of sexual offenses? Will they mention the extremely low reoffense rate of those convicted of sexual offenses? Will they mention that the overwhelming number of sexual offenses are perpetrated by individuals known to the victims, most frequently family members or friends, coaches, teachers, religious leaders, etc.? Will they discuss any actual efforts being made… Read more »

👍 Done! 👍 Letter has been sent to Lee Enterprises publisher!!: RE: News Video series by Scotia White “Out of the Shadows: Spotlight on Sex Crimes” and Lee Enterprises Midwest Editor Marc Chase’s “Sex offenses are something our society just can’t ignore” Editorial piece. Mr. White, I am responding to a video series produced by Scotia White “Riding Shotgun with NWI Cops” filmed with a Midwest reporting project titled, “Out of the Shadows: Spotlight on Sex Crimes.” “The special report will span multiple newspapers throughout Lee Enterprises’ Midwest news agencies and will be taking a deep look at sex crimes,… Read more »

Wow!! The publisher responded to my emailin less than an hour noting that they would research the information I had provided and maybe in touch with me in the near future. 👍

I’d bet my left nut that this particular officer is an overbearing, bullying jerk that likes to make up law as he goes and only toned himself back because he was on camera.

Wow!! The publisher responded to my email in less than an hour, noting that they would research the information I had provided and may be in touch with me in the near future. 👍

David,
Please keep us posted about any further information IF it develops. Given you’ve gotten an email response, that puts the ball back in your hands.

“A lot of the offenders have mental deficiencies.”

“They are still human beings and we still got to deal with them.”

WOW.. that really does blow a hole in their “We’re not here to judge” argument!

Also, wife beaters don’t reserve the right to judge anyone!

You got that right.
Somewhere between 1/4 and 1/5 police are wife beaters.
Far less than 25% of sex offenders will commit further crimes.
Who is the real danger to society?

And what percentage again are LE found to be sex offenders according to the data published on who really is a danger and in the 93%? He’s calling out his LE siblings here and doesn’t know it. Maybe he should.
