UT - Doe .v. Utah - Online Identifiers

From a comment sent to me via email:

This is a PDF copy of the Order of Judge Tena Campbell concerning the "online identifiers" case in Utah against myself, John Doe.

I am not sure why the news has not picked up on this yet, possibly because the state legislature had numerous news conferences saying this law was constitutional, I am presuming the Attorney General's office has chosen not to inform the media at this time.


ID - Oklahoma investigating death of Idaho inmate

09/26/2008

TWIN FALLSAn Idaho inmate who was found dead this summer in his cell at a private Oklahoma prison was murdered, authorities say.

Oklahoma officials confirmed Thursday that David Drashner, 51, died in June of traumatic brain injury at the Northfork Correctional Facility in Sayre, Okla.

Drashner, of Nampa, was serving time for a drunken driving conviction and was one of dozens of Idaho inmates housed out of state in Texas and Oklahoma.

Jessica Brown, spokeswoman for the Oklahoma Bureau of Investigation, declined to identify a suspect in the case or when charges may be filed.

Idaho Correction Department spokesman Jeff Ray said agency officials are cooperating with the investigation.

"But I do not know precisely what the department is doing," Ray wrote in an e-mail to the Times-News.

Drasher is the third Idaho inmate to die in an out-of-state prison operated by a private company.

On Aug. 18, Twin Falls native Randall McCullough, 37, apparently killed himself at the Bill Clayton Detention Center in Littlefield, Texas. The prison is operated by Geo Group Inc. Idaho officials say they are still awaiting autopsy reports on McCullough's death.

In March 2007, convicted sex offender Scott Noble Payne, 43, killed himself at a Geo Group prison in Dickens, Texas, after complaining of having to live in filthy conditions at the lockup.

The Northfork Correctional Facility is operated by Corrections Corporation of America, which also runs the state-owned Idaho Correctional Center in Boise. Florida-based Geo Group and CCA both lobbied Idaho lawmakers unsuccessfully earlier this year on a plan to build a new $190 million, 1,500-bed prison in Idaho.

Idaho is one of several states that houses some of its inmates in other states to ease overcrowding at in-state lockups. Overall, the Corrections Department has nearly 10 percent of its 7,319 inmates in private prisons in Texas and Oklahoma.

Last year, the department started the Virtual Prison Program to improve the way it monitors inmates it ships to other states and to make sure those facilities are following contractual obligations.

The program came was a response to the political fallout of Payne's death and other complaints about the treatment of Idaho inmates in Texas facilities.

Drashner's wife, Pam Drashner, said her husband had a pending civil case against Idaho and should have never been shipped out of state.

"I just want some sort of justice to happen," she said. "If he was here in Idaho he would have never been killed."


Corrupted-Justice.com - Who are they?



About:
Corrupted-Justice.com was started in April 2004 in reaction to the dangerous and immoral behavior and often illegal actions of the members of Perverted-Justice.com.

Most of the 700+ members of our organization were visitors to or members of Perverted-Justice.com (PJ). Some of our members were actual participants. After realizing that PJ truly is a vigilante organization in every sense of the word, one that was destroying lives with no concern for the rule of law or the concept of "innocent until proven guilty in a court of law", a number of "anti-PJers" managed to contact each other through various internet web logs and message forums. Realizing that it would be necessary to "band together" in order to attempt to stop this menace, Corrupted-Justice.com was formed.

Our staff expend considerable effort in research, attempting to turn up details such as names and contact information for those involved in PJ activities, as well as legal information and corporate internet Terms of Service agreements in the hopes that we may assist the legal community in stopping PJ by passing on the information we have gathered. (The results of our research are NOT displayed publicly.). None of the personal information gathered by our organization is released publicly. It is stored securely and provided only to attorneys and law enforcement officials requesting the information.

Corrupted-Justice consists primarily of this website which displays helpful, common-sense information for the general public and those being targeted by PJ, as well as an online forum for use by Corrupted-Justice members and the public at large to discuss tactics, laws, and any legal avenues which might be used to put a stop to the miscarriage of justice being carried out by PJ.

The Corrupted-Justice forums are open forums with no restrictions to membership. All comment, pro or con is invited as long as it is done respectfully, and lively discussions ensue daily about the threat to civil rights that PJ creates.

No Corrupted-Justice staff have ever been "busted" by PJ. We are not "pedophile enablers" or "pro-pedophile". We at Corrupted-Justice.com do not condone pedophilia or any inappropriate contact between adults and children. We believe persons involved in those activities should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. We believe in using law enforcement to handle the prosecution of these things. Perverted-Justice is not law enforcement.

We are simply concerned parents, computer experts, students, activists, and primarily, very concerned citizens. We strongly believe in the concept of the rule of law, and do not believe ANY group, regardless of the evil they purport to combat, is justified in trampling the rule of law by the use of intimidation, public humiliation and harassment. We mean to see it stopped.


FL - EXCLUSIVE: Florida sex offender registry not accurate?

View the article here

Video available at the site, and below.  So I wonder how many have been arrested and put into prison on violation charges for something that was not their fault?

LEE COUNTY - A WINK News Exclusive investigation uncovers the Florida Sex Offender Registry might not be as accurate as you think.

A Southwest Florida man's address was listed on the Florida registry as being in Louisiana, but when we showed up to his last known address in our area we found him.

The man showed us paperwork proving he registered with the Lee County Sheriff's Office when he came back to Louisiana.

Our investigation found Florida's law enforcement agencies did nothing wrong, the problem was in Louisiana.

We're told the state put all their offenders in a new system and therefore wrong information was sent to the national database and Florida registry.

Florida Department of Law Enforcement says it believes this is a rare occurrence, but admits officers don't check what other agencies submit to the national registry.
- Well maybe they should?  Especially when someones life is on the stake!

Louisiana State Police now plans on checking its database to make sure other offenders information is accurate.
