WI - Exclusive: Released Sex Offender Speaks Out

View the article here

04/23/2008

MILWAUKEE - People in a neighborhood on Milwaukee’s northwest side are being warned about a sex offender.

He was released recently, and now he's living near 68th and Congress.

That man is Rob Grisby.

Grisby exclusively with TODAY’S TMJ4’s Melanie Stout Wednesday.

Grisby was convicted in 1993 with two counts of second degree sexual assault. He was charged with raping a woman he didn't know.

Now, he's been released.

Police sent out a safety alert to neighbors who live near Grisby.

Grisby was surprised to hear that but says neighbors have nothing to fear.

“I've got no reason to hurt them now. They can live in peace like I want my family to live in peace and I want to live in peace,” Grisby said.

Grisby says he is not mad about the sex offender bulletin being released, he's just concerned for his family.

“If you want to retaliate against me I’m alright with that, you know, as long as they don’t mess with my family,” Grisby said.

People who live near Grisby were surprised to learn a neighbor is a convicted sex offender.

“I think we got to put a watch on him. I got to keep an eye on him,” one neighbor said.

“I don't want him even close to me. He's another human being like me. He's done something he had no business doing. Sure, he served his time, but who's to say he won't do it again?” another neighbor said.

Police sent the bulletins out not to create fear and panic, but to raise neighbor’s awareness. Police stress he should not be harassed.

Grisby does wear electronic bracelets so parole agents always know his whereabouts.

“What I did in 93, I have to live with that. My momma who died, she got to live with that. My family got to live…I just don't want nobody looking at my family wrong. If you want to look at somebody wrong look at me,” Grisby said.


CA - Arnold Schwarzenegger Set to Appear on America's Most Wanted

Getting DNA once someone is a felon is pointless, IMO. If we want to help solve crimes, we need to get DNA from the day someone is born, and of all citizens. If someone commits a crime who is not a felon, what is the point?

04/23/2008

America's Most Wanted host John Walsh welcomes California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to the iconic crime-busting show Saturday, April 26 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on Fox. As part of Walsh's hunt for some of the nation's most dangerous criminals, he met with Gov. Schwarzenegger at a state-of-the-art laboratory in Sacramento where DNA testing is conducted to discuss the importance of expanding law enforcement's authority to take DNA samples from criminal suspects. Gov. Schwarzenegger was instrumental in helping pass California's Prop 69, which mandates taking DNA samples from felony suspects not just convicted criminals. California is one of only a handful of states with such a policy, and Walsh is calling for all states to implement similar regulations. Both he and the governor feel that a comprehensive national DNA database will not only solve more crimes, but also ensure that innocent people are not wrongly convicted.

In addition to his visit with Gov. Schwarzenegger, Saturday's America's Most Wanted broadcast will feature Walsh hunting down a serial predator known as "The NorCal Rapist," who has attacked at least ten women in Northern California. Walsh will also ask the public to help identify the cold-hearted killers of a 7-month-old child in Sacramento.

America's Most Wanted airs Saturdays (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. AMW is produced by STF Productions, Inc. Lance Heflin is executive producer.


FL - Man Says He Wasn't In Bathroom For Sex, He Was Playing Game On PDA

View the article here

04/23/2008

VOLUSIA COUNTY -- For the first time, a former Daytona Beach city commissioner talked about his involvement in an all-men sex sting in a Sears bathroom.

Mike Shallow told a courtroom he wasn't trying to meet men for sex. Instead, he said, he was in the bathroom playing a video game and insists the police version of the incident is all wrong.

Shallow said he was in the bathroom with the door closed when he saw a foot aggressively come under the door. Then he could see people peering through the cracks at him. He said he was scared and ending up taking out his phone to play a game while he waited for the people to leave.

The bathroom inside the Daytona Beach Sears store was a place where men routinely engaged in sexual activity, police said, but in court Wednesday Shallow said he was just there to buy a TV. The one-time city leader was adamant he is innocent of any crime.

"And I told them that did not happen. And they said, 'Well, the two officers observed you masturbating,' and I said, 'That's completely untrue. No, two officers did not,'" Shallow said Wednesday.

Police were the ones who initially made contact with Shallow while he was inside a bathroom stall.

"A foot came underneath the partition, maybe this far on my side of the partition, with the foot pounding on the floor," Shallow said.

Then officers started peering through the cracks of the door. Shallow said they were soliciting him, but he never responded.

"No, I was creeped out. I just withdrew and I sat down on the toilet, kinda hunched down and waited for him to go away," Shallow said.

He said he was too startled to act and eventually found a way to pass the time until he felt safe to leave.

"I took out my PDA and started playing a game on my PDA," he said.

It was right after that Shallow said he was arrested. He talked Wednesday as part of a plan to show he had an expectation of privacy and that police didn't fully understand what they were doing. The judge is expected to take a few days before making a ruling on dismissing the case.


FL - Bradenton cop quits after sex complaint

View the article here

Sounds like an angry woman to me, but I do not know all the facts.

04/23/2008

A Bradenton Police Department sergeant abruptly retired over the weekend after a woman claiming to be having an affair with him filed a complaint with internal affairs.

After 18 years with the department, Sgt. Thomas Petty, 43, retired after Alison Wright told officials that Petty had sex with her while he was on duty, according to Bradenton Police reports.

Wright and Petty got into an argument that brought Petty's fellow officers to Wright's apartment Friday. Wright had called 911 claiming to be afraid of him. Petty told officers he came to her apartment to drop off some of her personal items, police reports said.

Petty, who is married, was overheard by officers telling Wright he was done with her, according to reports. He could not be reached for comment.

Wright accused him of stealing from her, then went to the police department and filed the official complaint saying she had a relationship with Petty for more than 10 years. Wright alleged having sex with Petty several times while he was on duty and in uniform, according to her complaint.

After Wright filed the complaint, Petty turned in his retirement papers Friday night, saying he was leaving the department for "personal reasons."

The day after Petty retired, Wright returned to the police department and recanted her complaint, saying she did not wish to pursue it further, according to Bradenton Police Maj. Bill Tokajer.

Tokajer said the department will not pursue an investigation into Petty because he has left the department.

Petty's abrupt retirement shocked many in the department.

"He was an outstanding police officer," said Police Chief Michael Radzilowski. "He was very respected around here."

DC - FBI, politicos renew push for ISP data retention laws

View the article here

This, IMO, is them exploiting the fear of sexual predators to further their agenda to control the population, and to go after terrorists.

04/23/2008

WASHINGTON - The FBI and multiple members of Congress said on Wednesday that Internet service providers must be legally required to keep records of their users' activities for later review by police.

Their suggestions for mandatory data retention revive a push for potentially sweeping federal laws--which civil libertarians oppose--that flagged last year after the resignation of Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, the idea's most prominent proponent.

FBI Director Robert Mueller told a House of Representatives committee that Internet service providers should be required to keep records of users' activities for two years.

"From the perspective of an investigator, having that backlog of records would be tremendously important if someone comes up on your screen now," Mueller said. "If those records are only kept 15 days or 30 days, you may lose the information you may need to bring that person to justice."

Also lending their support for data retention were Rep. Ric Keller (Contact), R-Fla., who said that Internet chat rooms were crammed with sexual predators, and Rep. Lamar Smith (Contact) of Texas, the senior Republican on the House Judiciary committee and a previous data retention enthusiast. Rep. John Conyers (Email), the senior Democrat and chairman, added that any proposed data retention legislation submitted by the FBI "would be most welcome."

"Records retention by ISPs would be tremendously helpful in giving us a historic basis to make a case on a number of child pornographers who use the Internet to push their pornography" or lure children, Mueller said.

Replied Smith: "I think a number of us may well follow up on that suggestion."

An aide to Rep. Smith said in response to questions from News.com that the congressman was offering no details and would not be commenting at this point.

Based on the statements at Wednesday's hearing and previous calls for new laws in this area, the scope of a mandatory data retention law remains fuzzy. It could mean forcing companies to store data for two years about what Internet addresses are assigned to which customers (Comcast said in 2006 that it would be retaining those records for six months).

Or it could be far more intrusive. It could mean keeping track of e-mail and instant-messaging correspondence and what Web pages users visit. Some Democratic politicians have called for data retention laws to extend to domain name registries and Web hosting companies and even social-networking sites. During private meetings with industry officials, FBI and Justice Department representatives have said it would be desirable to force search engines to keep logs--a proposal that could gain additional law enforcement support, but raise additional privacy concerns and potentially conflict with European laws.

Kate Dean, director of the U.S. Internet Service Provider Association, which counts as members AT&T, AOL, Comcast, and Verizon, said in an e-mail message:

Without specifics, it's hard to know what Director Mueller is looking for from industry. The idea of data retention is complex, and Congress will need to examine many issues including which providers would be covered by a retention regime, for what period of time would those organizations be required to keep the data, does the policy idea fit with the today's and tomorrow's technologies, and what are the effects on the consumer--what are the potential risks to subscriber privacy and security? US ISPA members have been at the forefront of child protection initiatives with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and law enforcement, so we welcome a continued dialogue.

As attorney general until last summer, Gonzales rarely passed up an opportunity to call for data retention. In April 2006, he said Internet providers must retain records for a "reasonable amount of time" and the issue "must be addressed." In September 2006, he added: "This is a national problem that requires federal legislation."

After Gonzales' departure, the Bush administration has been less vocal on lobbying for data retention legislation. During Wednesday's hearing, however, Mueller called for new laws at least three times.

Multiple proposals to mandate data retention have surfaced in the U.S. Congress. One, backed by Rep. Diana DeGette (Contact), a Colorado Democrat, said that any Internet service that "enables users to access content" must indefinitely retain records that would permit police to identify each user. Another came from Wisconsin Rep. F. James Sensenbrenner (Contact), a close ally of President Bush, and a third was written by Rep. Smith, who endorsed the idea again on Wednesday.

At the moment, Internet service providers typically discard any log file that's no longer required for business reasons such as network monitoring, fraud prevention or billing disputes. Companies do, however, alter that general rule when contacted by police performing an investigation--a practice called data preservation.

A 1996 federal law called the Electronic Communication Transactional Records Act regulates data preservation. It requires Internet providers to retain any "record" in their possession for 90 days "upon the request of a governmental entity."

Because Internet addresses remain a relatively scarce commodity, ISPs tend to allocate them to customers from a pool based on whether a computer is in use at the time. (Two standard techniques used are the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol and Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet.)

In addition, Internet providers are required by another federal law to report child pornography sightings to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, which is in turn charged with forwarding that report to the appropriate police agency.

U.S. prison population dwarfs that of other nations

View the article here

04/23/2008

The United States has less than 5 percent of the world's population. But it has almost a quarter of the world's prisoners.

Indeed, the United States leads the world in producing prisoners, a reflection of a relatively recent and now entirely distinctive American approach to crime and punishment. Americans are locked up for crimes — from writing bad checks to using drugs — that would rarely produce prison sentences in other countries. And in particular they are kept incarcerated far longer than prisoners in other nations.

Criminologists and legal scholars in other industrialized nations say they are mystified and appalled by the number and length of American prison sentences.

The United States has, for instance, 2.3 million criminals behind bars, more than any other nation, according to data maintained by the International Center for Prison Studies at King's College London.

China, which is four times more populous than the United States, is a distant second, with 1.6 million people in prison. (That number excludes hundreds of thousands of people held in administrative detention, most of them in China's extrajudicial system of re-education through labor, which often singles out political activists who have not committed crimes.)

San Marino, with a population of about 30,000, is at the end of the long list of 218 countries compiled by the center. It has a single prisoner.

The United States comes in first, too, on a more meaningful list from the prison studies center, the one ranked in order of the incarceration rates. It has 751 people in prison or jail for every 100,000 in population. (If you count only adults, one in 100 Americans is locked up.)

The only other major industrialized nation that even comes close is Russia, with 627 prisoners for every 100,000 people. The others have much lower rates. England's rate is 151; Germany's is 88; and Japan's is 63.

The median among all nations is about 125, roughly a sixth of the American rate.

There is little question that the high incarceration rate here has helped drive down crime, though there is debate about how much.

Criminologists and legal experts here and abroad point to a tangle of factors to explain America's extraordinary incarceration rate: higher levels of violent crime, harsher sentencing laws, a legacy of racial turmoil, a special fervor in combating illegal drugs, the American temperament, and the lack of a social safety net. Even democracy plays a role, as judges — many of whom are elected, another American anomaly — yield to populist demands for tough justice.

Whatever the reason, the gap between American justice and that of the rest of the world is enormous and growing.

It used to be that Europeans came to the United States to study its prison systems. They came away impressed.

"In no country is criminal justice administered with more mildness than in the United States," Alexis de Tocqueville, who toured American penitentiaries in 1831, wrote in "Democracy in America."

No more.

"Far from serving as a model for the world, contemporary America is viewed with horror," James Whitman, a specialist in comparative law at Yale, wrote last year in Social Research. "Certainly there are no European governments sending delegations to learn from us about how to manage prisons."

Prison sentences here have become "vastly harsher than in any other country to which the United States would ordinarily be compared," Michael Tonry, a leading authority on crime policy, wrote in "The Handbook of Crime and Punishment."

Indeed, said Vivien Stern, a research fellow at the prison studies center in London, the American incarceration rate has made the United States "a rogue state, a country that has made a decision not to follow what is a normal Western approach."

The spike in American incarceration rates is quite recent. From 1925 to 1975, the rate remained stable, around 110 people in prison per 100,000 people. It shot up with the movement to get tough on crime in the late 1970s. (These numbers exclude people held in jails, as comprehensive information on prisoners held in state and local jails was not collected until relatively recently.)

The nation's relatively high violent crime rate, partly driven by the much easier availability of guns here, helps explain the number of people in American prisons.

"The assault rate in New York and London is not that much different," said Marc Mauer, the executive director of the Sentencing Project, a research and advocacy group. "But if you look at the murder rate, particularly with firearms, it's much higher."

Despite the recent decline in the murder rate in the United States, it is still about four times that of many nations in Western Europe.

But that is only a partial explanation. The United States, in fact, has relatively low rates of nonviolent crime. It has lower burglary and robbery rates than Australia, Canada and England.

People who commit nonviolent crimes in the rest of the world are less likely to receive prison time and certainly less likely to receive long sentences. The United States is, for instance, the only advanced country that incarcerates people for minor property crimes like passing bad checks, Whitman wrote.

Efforts to combat illegal drugs play a major role in explaining long prison sentences in the United States as well. In 1980, there were about 40,000 people in American jails and prisons for drug crimes. These days, there are almost 500,000.

Those figures have drawn contempt from European critics. "The U.S. pursues the war on drugs with an ignorant fanaticism," said Stern of King's College.

Many American prosecutors, on the other hand, say that locking up people involved in the drug trade is imperative, as it helps thwart demand for illegal drugs and drives down other kinds of crime. Attorney General Michael Mukasey, for instance, has fought hard to prevent the early release of people in federal prison on crack cocaine offenses, saying that many of them "are among the most serious and violent offenders."

Still, it is the length of sentences that truly distinguishes American prison policy. Indeed, the mere number of sentences imposed here would not place the United States at the top of the incarceration lists. If lists were compiled based on annual admissions to prison per capita, several European countries would outpace the United States. But American prison stays are much longer, so the total incarceration rate is higher.

Burglars in the United States serve an average of 16 months in prison, according to Mauer, compared with 5 months in Canada and 7 months in England.

Many specialists dismissed race as an important distinguishing factor in the American prison rate. It is true that blacks are much more likely to be imprisoned than other groups in the United States, but that is not a particularly distinctive phenomenon. Minorities in Canada, Britain and Australia are also disproportionately represented in those nation's prisons, and the ratios are similar to or larger than those in the United States.

Some scholars have found that English-speaking nations have higher prison rates.

"Although it is not at all clear what it is about Anglo-Saxon culture that makes predominantly English-speaking countries especially punitive, they are," Tonry wrote last year in "Crime, Punishment and Politics in Comparative Perspective."

"It could be related to economies that are more capitalistic and political cultures that are less social democratic than those of most European countries," Tonry wrote. "Or it could have something to do with the Protestant religions with strong Calvinist overtones that were long influential."

The American character — self-reliant, independent, judgmental — also plays a role.

"America is a comparatively tough place, which puts a strong emphasis on individual responsibility," Whitman of Yale wrote. "That attitude has shown up in the American criminal justice of the last 30 years."

French-speaking countries, by contrast, have "comparatively mild penal policies," Tonry wrote.

Of course, sentencing policies within the United States are not monolithic, and national comparisons can be misleading.

"Minnesota looks more like Sweden than like Texas," said Mauer of the Sentencing Project. (Sweden imprisons about 80 people per 100,000 of population; Minnesota, about 300; and Texas, almost 1,000. Maine has the lowest incarceration rate in the United States, at 273; and Louisiana the highest, at 1,138.)

Whatever the reasons, there is little dispute that America's exceptional incarceration rate has had an impact on crime.

"As one might expect, a good case can be made that fewer Americans are now being victimized" thanks to the tougher crime policies, Paul Cassell, an authority on sentencing and a former federal judge, wrote in The Stanford Law Review.

From 1981 to 1996, according to Justice Department statistics, the risk of punishment rose in the United States and fell in England. The crime rates predictably moved in the opposite directions, falling in the United States and rising in England.

"These figures," Cassell wrote, "should give one pause before too quickly concluding that European sentences are appropriate."

Other commentators were more definitive. "The simple truth is that imprisonment works," wrote Kent Scheidegger and Michael Rushford of the Criminal Justice Legal Foundation in The Stanford Law and Policy Review. "Locking up criminals for longer periods reduces the level of crime. The benefits of doing so far offset the costs."

There is a counterexample, however, to the north. "Rises and falls in Canada's crime rate have closely paralleled America's for 40 years," Tonry wrote last year. "But its imprisonment rate has remained stable."

Several specialists here and abroad pointed to a surprising explanation for the high incarceration rate in the United States: democracy.

Most state court judges and prosecutors in the United States are elected and are therefore sensitive to a public that is, according to opinion polls, generally in favor of tough crime policies. In the rest of the world, criminal justice professionals tend to be civil servants who are insulated from popular demands for tough sentencing.

Whitman, who has studied Tocqueville's work on American penitentiaries, was asked what accounted for America's booming prison population.

"Unfortunately, a lot of the answer is democracy — just what Tocqueville was talking about," he said. "We have a highly politicized criminal justice system."

WI - Ashwaubenon passes sex-offender ordinance

View the article here

04/23/2008

Village follows lead of Green Bay, sets residency limits

ASHWAUBENON — The Village Board on Tuesday voted unanimously to bar sex offenders from living in most of the community.

Enacting a residency restriction similar to Green Bay's, leaders agreed certain sex offenders cannot live within 1,500 feet of a school, day-care center, park or other place children might gather.

The board referred back to committee both a clause to create an appeals board and a proposed ordinance that would make it illegal for sex offenders to loiter within 200 feet of certain places children might be.

Offenders currently living in the village will be grandfathered in, unless they move.

"I sat here in January telling people not to pass laws," Public Safety Director Eric Dunning said. "But I've got people from outside of Ashwaubenon, from outside of the state. What are they doing here? … We need an even playing field. When you have big brother to the north, the numbers are stacked against us."

Of particular concern is a motel on Ashland Avenue that currently houses about eight to 11 sex offenders, Dunning said.

Before Green Bay adopted tough restrictions a year ago, the motel had about two sex offenders at a time, Dunning said. Now it serves as longer-term housing for offenders waiting to appeal to move into Green Bay, he said.

That doesn't sit well with families living near the motel.

"I have five kids, I won't let them go outside," Ryan Leanna told the Village Board.

Neighbor Mel Mertens agreed.

"I've got two kids who don't want to go outside and play," he said. "I have a mother who's very upset. I'm at a loss why they have to congregate in an area. Something has to be done or there will be no peace."

But others implored the board to reject restrictions.

"It's not going to be the person you think," said Pat Jansen of De Pere, whose son is a sex offender.

"They're not all animals, they're not all predators … by passing this you're going to make it harder and they're going to go underground, and you're not going to know where they are."

Steve Ronsman, a Green Bay man who told the board he was convicted of a sex offense 13 years ago, said he understands the public's fear, but said he believes education is the answer.

He praised the suburbs that, for the most part, enacted very few rules in reaction to Green Bay's ordinance.

"I actually was really impressed with the rest of the county," he said. "I thought they did an excellent job, up to this point.

"They were open-minded, caring and compassionate … they were using their brain instead of scare tactics."

That isn't enough for Jeremy Janquart, who lives near the Ashland Avenue motel and has three children.

"I grew up in the neighborhood … it used to be a neighborhood you could leave your doors open all day and not worry.

"I'm very aware only 1 percent (of offenders) will reoffend, but I'm not willing to see that 1 percent wreck one of the lives of the children in our neighborhood."


CA - 79-year-old dead of apparent suicide

View the article here

04/22/2008

On April 16, 2008, an employee of De Anza Elementary School in San Jacinto saw an elderly male standing near the school watching the children. The employee approached the male and asked what he was doing. The male responded that he was watching the children.

Suspicious of the male’s intent, the employee searched the Megan’s Law website and located the male who was listed as a sex registrant in the City of San Jacinto.

Five days later the employee reported this incident to a San Jacinto Police Officer currently assigned as a school resource officer. The officer followed up on the information and went to the male’s residence.

The City of San Jacinto contracts with the Riverside Sheriff’s Department for police services.

Once at the residence, at about 2:45 p.m., the officer knocked at the door, identified himself as a police officer and asked to speak with the male. The male refused to open the door so the officer spoke to the male through the door.

The male continuously refused to answer the door and the officer could hear him walking throughout the residence muttering expletives as if he were upset at the officer’s presence.

A short time later, the officer heard a single gunshot from inside the residence. The officer called for additional officers to assist him.

Once the other officers arrived, they entered the residence and found the male deceased inside with what appeared to be a single gunshot wound to the head.

The scene was secured and members of the Riverside County Sheriff’s Central Homicide Unit were called to investigate. Central Homicide is involved when a death occurs with a police officer present.

During a search of the residence, a suicide note and a firearm were located.

The subject is a white male, 79 years old.

The investigation is ongoing.


OK - Neighborhood Speaks Out Against Shawnee Center






CA - Supervisors pass an emergency sex offender ordinance

View the article here

04/22/2008

County Supervisors passed a watered-down law that will restrict sex offenders from living in daycare centers.

Supervisor Michael Rubio hoped for broader legislation but other Supervisors worried tougher residency restrictions might create bigger problems.

Maria Lopez broke down in tears when talking about her son and the three dozen sex offenders living around the corner at a South Union motel.

"He has rhumatoid arthritis in both of knees and he is not able to run," Lopez said. "If one of these gentleman were to come to my neighborhood and try something on my child, I don't know what I would do."

The proposed protection started as a sweeping restriction that would have prevented sex offenders from living or lingering within 300 feet of child sensitive places like arcades and skate parks, but the proposed law made some supervisors uncomfortable.

4th District Supervisor Ray Watson said, "The measures we are talking about are liable to drive these people underground, so to speak, or scatter them, as Supervisor McQuiston says so they are much more difficult to monitor and control."

In the end, supervisors passed an urgent ordinance that only prevents sex offenders from living or lingering near licensed day cares.

The ordinance is effective immediately, but applies only to those who commit future sex offenses.

Supervisor Rubio said, "I think it's one of those rare times where we got swift action, and now we're still looking at that other ordinance."

Supervisors also agreed to write a strongly-worded letter, urging Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to force the sex offenders currently living in the South Union motels out.

It's one small battle won for business owner Jim Starkey, who is frustrated with the parole department.

Starky said, "In our community right now, the tie goes to the sex offender."

Supervisors will revisit the stricter ordinance in 30 days, which will give time to county lawyers to determine where sex offenders could live under potentially stricter residency rules.
