A good man's life ruined due to the public sex offender registry
My readers know that I do not often use someone else's words in my posts. I seem to have too many of my own bubbling over to need borrowed ones. However, I recently read a comment on the RSOL website that will not get out of my head. I could never write wha...

Why the public sex offender registry?
We had Untouchable. And now we have Pervert Park . These films are important. They are heartbreaking and poignant and very, very
worthwhile. They open doors to conversations and to realizations and to minds. But they are not the reality of most of America’s...

Why are people afraid of truth and facts?
I have just had a lesson in how far those who are opposed to our advocacy are willing to go to suppress the truth. This started exactly a month ago with this op/ed in the March 13 online edition of the Longview, WA Daily News . RSOL wrote a rebuttal, receiv...

Predator panic -- it might get worse, but it couldn't get sillier
Imagine this. You are at a Monster Jam event, and you see a booth selling pink, fuzzy toy trucks. You buy one for your little girl, and then you find out -- how? -- that the heart pattern on the toy is a secret symbol to pedophiles, and that your purchase h...

New Rule: Those accused of sexual offenses should expect to act as their own counsel; no decent attorney would take the case
When something I write references something
read elsewhere, especially when I use direct quotes, I always link to the other
piece. Due to my refusal to give the other piece or its publisher any credence
or recognition, this post will be the exception to tha...

Where the registry’s involved, there are no winners.
I’ve just finished watching an episode of Law and Order, SVU. Basic story: High school couple on first date at a school dance; they are both a little socially awkward and inexperienced. She isn’t at all adverse to “making out,” and they end up in the dark r...

Punishment does not equal prevention
How
wonderful that Mr. Gary Greenburg, a wealthy New York businessman, is concerned
about the young victims of child sexual abuse and wants to help. He has offered $100, 000 dollars toward that end. That
is a lot of money. The
first thing that comes to mind...

Sex offenders, transgender folk, and public toilets
I thought I was through writing about this transgender/bathroom issue when I wrote “Is Target’s bathroom policy an open door to sex offenders?” I’m really sick of the whole silly thing. The expression “tempest in a teapot” surely was penned for situations s...

With sex offender issues, many media outlets don't want both sides
 A May 13 editorial in the Longview, WA News Online proclaimed, "Laws Help Keep Children Safe." The editorial was essentially an expression of outrage that the organization W.A.R. -- and by extension all such-minded advocacy organizations-- even existed. "I...

No, Senator Grassley, the Adam Walsh Act does NOT need to be re-authorized
Mr. Grassley, like you, we grieve with families of children who are victimized and abused, and we especially grieve that virtually all of this type of crime is committed by the family members and others close to their young victims. Like you, we would like ...

This is how to pass a bill with no facts to support it
The discussion in the U.S. House pertinent to International Megan's Law has ended with a vote to pass the resolution under suspension of the rules. Ten legislators spoke in favor of the bill. They all threw out a lot of numbers, sometimes in conflict with e...

"Whoever does this to the least of these..." --and today that is sex offenders; a Christmas story
Warm, fuzzy, feel-good stories about sex offenders are a little hard to come by, even at Christmas time. The stories are more likely to be of the type that threatens to put them out on the streets in the freezing weather or refuses them admittance to emerge...
