TX - Dallas felon on two ankle monitors eludes surveillance

Original Article

This goes to show you, the state doesn't believe in GPS, thus the reason they placed TWO GPS devices on the man, and neither worked to prevent anything! And this shows, that if a person is intent on committing a crime, they will, regardless.

DALLAS — _____ is supposed to spend his days at an apartment on Old Hickory Trail in the Red Bird area of Dallas.

He was convicted for indecency with a little girl, but after getting out of prison, _____ failed to register as a sex offender.

Then he allegedly robbed someone and stole a car.

So in September, a judge slapped an electronic ankle monitor on him — and later added a second one for good measure. The devices are designed to provide updated information about a suspect's location.

Recently, however, Dallas police arrested the habitual criminal on Jefferson Boulevard in Oak Cliff, miles from his home and restricted area.

According to a police report, _____ asked an undercover officer if he wanted to buy cocaine.

"It is frustrating to arrest offenders — repeat offenders who do this over and over and over," said Dallas police spokesman Lt. Andrew Harvey.
- And apparently you folks aren't doing you jobs either!

Criminals who have an ankle monitor are allowed to leave home while looking for a job. But their movements are supposed to be closely monitored, and selling drugs on the street is not one of the allowed activities.
- So tell me, how is a GPS device going to tell you what a person is or isn't doing?  It doesn't!

So who dropped the ball in the case of _____?

The Dallas County Community Supervision and Corrections Department is supposed to monitor criminals on a regular basis, but no one there would answer questions from News 8 on camera about _____'s case.

They couldn't say when the last time anyone checked on him.

Dallas police say they can't fight crime alone. "In order for all of us to be successful, we all have to be doing our part," Harvey said.

_____ is in jail now, but police say history shows them he'll probably be on the streets again soon — and that's what they are worried about.

FL - File your Florida Civil Rights Complaints

This goes for all other states as well. Contact your local ACLU and file a complaint. If you do not, then nothing will change, so FILE A COMPLAINT NOW!

It was strongly suggested by the Florida Civil Rights Association (Contact) that we (we meaning RSO's, and or their family members) start filling complaints. The FCRA cannot do anything with the educational material that I sent them via mail except "get educated" with it. We (the RSO community have to FILE A COMPLAINT in order to even discover whether their attorneys can assist us or not. Without a complaint, no attorney can take action on behalf of anyone or any group.

The FCRA also said that we as individuals MUST START filing mass individual complaints to the ACLU (Contact) and FCRA. Once the complaints start "massing up" (stacking up) this is a good indication that there are similar issues in neighboring counties. This means that "individuals" have to initiate the complaint with the ACLU at their web site or send it via a letter to their mail box, and initiate the complaint with the Florida Civil Rights Association (FCRA) website or send the complaint via letter to their mail box.

Nothing starts until WE INITIATE THE COMPLAINT(S)

I realize that there have been complaints sent into the ACLU from different parts of our state, but if you look at the complaints sent in against civil rights violations or constitutional challenges compared to the TOTAL POPULATION OF RSO's, then you can see that we are lacking in the volume of complaints that need to be submitted.

Also, the ACLU and the FCRA cannot divulge your name or address when you file a complaint. They are bound by law to give you anonymity. RSO's or their family don't need to be afraid to make a complaint. In fact, this is the only thing that will get them rolling on our behalf is if we start filling individually, then they will look at us as a massive group. Both the ACLU and FCRA are looking for commonalities in our complaints. And we have plenty, I assure you!

I have included the web site address of the ACLU and FCRA at the bottom of this email. It is imperative that every one make a complaint, even if you don't know if the complaint is valid. Let the lawyers decide that. You may not have a case but an RSO or their family member 5 counties over may have the same issue but their complaint may have additional info that will cause the lawyers to assist them. That case can be then used as a precedent for all of us later. FILE YOUR COMPLAINT(S).

I was also told that even if a bill has not been made into a law yet by vote, if you believe that your civil rights will be violated if it becomes law, you should immediate write out your complaint and be ready to send it in. Don't wait!

The politician's have gotten away with far too much already and we have sat by and done nothing. Start filling your complaints with the ACLU and FCRA NOW. They cannot ignore a group of determined, helpless, poor class of citizens that want justice and relief from the problems the politician's have caused.

Lastly: DO NOT CALL THESE AGENCIES. They do not have the staff to answer the phones. Send your complaint in by mail and ask for confirmation or use their web sites.

NY - Lake George wants to stop sex offender motels before they start

Original Article

As long as the politicians continue to ignore facts and pass unconstitutional laws to further their own political careers, then this will continue. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to understand that by passing residency restrictions that offenders are going to be FORCED to congregate in certain areas, and they continue to pass more laws further restricting ex-offenders. Eventually it will get to a point where they just stop registering and vanish, and we do not need that.

04/13/2010

LAKE GEORGE - The Town of Lake George is joining other North Country towns with the passage of a new law involving motels and sex offenders.

The town passed a law Monday night, requiring motel and hotel owners who house sex offenders to buy a $3,000 permit.

The law also requires owners to display the permit prominently in their lobbies.

Town Supervisor Frank McCoy tells NEWS10 that there are currently no sex offenders living in motels in the town, but it is a way to protect residents as well as tourists.
- And a way to make ex-offenders homeless or less business for the owner!

McCoy says the placement of sex offenders by the county has become a way for area motels to make money.

"It's a dirty little secret and we are trying to put a light on it," He told NEWS10.

The law leaves out the lesser level one sex offenders who do not have to register with the state.

FL - Broward considers child-safety zones to target sex offenders

Original Article

04/13/2010

By Scott Wyman

Convicted sex offenders soon could face fines and jail time if caught loitering near a school or playground in Broward County.

Years of debate over how to handle sex offenders once they're released from prison has led county commissioners to propose 300-foot child safety zones around schools, school bus stops, day care centers and parks. Sex offenders could face up to 60 days in jail and a $500 fine if they loiter in the zones.
- So tell me, how many children have been sexually assaulted around any of the above mentioned places?

Cities have long set restrictions on where sex offenders may live, but county officials argue those rules don't go far enough to prevent crime because they do not address where a sex offender could find new victims.
- Well, are you going to make a law where parents cannot live with their own kids? Studies show that most sex crimes occur in the victims own home and by those they know, family, neighbors or close friends, not some stranger.

"This deals with where children congregate and where children play rather than only dealing with where a predator lives or sleeps," said Commissioner Lois Wexler, who initially suggested the idea. "It closes a loophole and is more effective because it's where children are during the day."

Miami-Dade County approved similar child-safety zones in January as part of a sex offender ordinance that repealed two dozen different laws enacted by municipalities within county borders. Miami made the move after criticism that tough housing restrictions had forced some sex offenders to live underneath the Julia Tuttle Causeway.

The Legislature is exploring a proposal to create child safety-zones across the state.

The Broward ordinance would apply countywide although cities could opt out. Commissioners on Tuesday set it for a public hearing and vote on April 27.

Most of the county's local governments have restrictions preventing registered sex offenders from living within 2,500 feet of places such as schools, school bus stops, day care centers or parks where children congregate.
- Again tell me, how many children have been sexually assaulted around any of the above mentioned places?

The county began exploring what to do after residents of Broadview Park, an unincorporated area of central Broward, began complaining that the municipal restrictions were leading large numbers of sex offenders to move into their neighborhood. The county imposed 2,500-foot restrictions in September, but a task force also suggested the idea of child-safety zones.
- Well, when you impose residency zones, it's only obvious that sex offenders are going to be forced to live in certain areas. So if you do not want this to occur, then repeal the residency zones, which no studies have been done to show they even work, but many will tell you they do not work, it forces offenders into homelessness, and to congregate, like is occurring now. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure this out!

"What you are doing is putting a stiff arm out there and saying to sex offenders that they cannot be within a football field of our children," said Ron Book, a prominent Florida lobbyist and longtime advocate for victims of sexual abuse.

Some city officials reacted with skepticism. Wilton Manors Mayor Gary Resnick and Miramar Mayor Lori Moseley, who are leaders of the county's League of Cities, said Broward had not consulted with cities on the idea and questioned how local police departments would enforce it.

"It sounds like good intentions because you don't want sex offenders loitering around schools, but from a practical standpoint, how would you enforce it?" Resnick said. "Our police aren't going to stop every adult around a park or school and check if they are a sex offender."

Sheriff Al Lamberti, though, said the ordinance would be another tool for law enforcement. He said the law would give officers a way to deal with finding a known sex offender around a school.

"Anything we can do to better monitor sex offenders is a good idea," Lamberti said.
- Again tell me, how many children have been sexually assaulted around any of the above mentioned places?

U.S. justices question sex offender confinement law

Original Article

01/12/2010

By Matthew Bigg and Will Dunham

(Reuters) - Supreme Court justices on Tuesday expressed skepticism about the Obama administration's argument that the U.S. Congress can keep sex offenders in custody for an indefinite time beyond their prison sentences.

Solicitor General Elena Kagan (Contact), the administration's top courtroom lawyer, urged the justices to uphold a 2006 federal law providing for the continued detention of sexually dangerous federal inmates who have completed their prison terms.

Chief Justice John Roberts asked Kagan why the federal government's authority in such cases does not end when the prisoner's sentence is done.

The Supreme Court in 1997 ruled that U.S. states could confine dangerous sex offenders to mental institutions after they serve their sentences. The issue on Tuesday was whether the federal government also had that authority.

Politicians from both U.S. political parties have backed tougher measures to deal with sex offenders in the U.S. criminal justice system to try to make sure they do not commit repeat crimes.

Crime has been a major issue in U.S. politics and many elected officials are sensitive to any accusations from opponents that they are too lenient on violent convicts. There has been ongoing public concern over repeat sexual offenders.

'TAKING OVER EVERYTHING'

Of the nine Supreme Court members, conservative Justice Antonin Scalia appeared the most troubled by the law.

Scalia told Kagan he was unimpressed by her argument that the federal government had to step in because some states might not confine prisoners who pose a danger. "This is a recipe for the federal government taking over everything," Scalia said.

Justice Sonia Sotomayor said that under the government's theory, any dangerous person could be held indefinitely.

A U.S. appeals court struck down the law for exceeding the limits of congressional authority and for intruding on police powers the U.S. Constitution reserves for the states, many of which have their own similar laws.

The law had been challenged by five inmates who had been kept in custody at a federal prison hospital in North Carolina after their sentences ended.

The federal law defined "sexually dangerous" as someone who suffered from a serious mental illness, abnormality or disorder and would have difficulty in refraining from sexually violent conduct or child molestation if released.

Kagan defended the law. Of approximately 15,000 federal prisoners who have engaged in sexually violent acts or child molestation, the government has identified only about 100 inmates for detention after serving their sentence, she said.

Kagan ended her argument by saying that Congress took the reasonable step of making sure the federal government can continue to hold a sexually dangerous, mentally ill prisoner when the state would not act.

G. Alan DuBois, an assistant federal public defender in North Carolina, argued that the law should be struck down and said the government's power to hold someone ended once the prison sentence has been served.

A decision in the case is expected by the end of June.

Lesbian flings, prostitution & abuse lies: Oprah's 'hidden' life

Original Article
Tell-All Author Claims Oprah's Influence Led to Media Blackballing

04/13/2010

By JEREMY OLSHAN

Oprah Winfrey -- who built a billion-dollar empire persuading everyone from celebs to average Joes to reveal the truth about themselves -- is a big phony when it comes to her own past, an explosive new book charges.

Winfrey's relationship with longtime "love" Stedman Graham, her reputed dirt-poor upbringing in rural Mississippi, her rumored lesbian crushes on women such as Diane Sawyer -- all are stories she has manipulated for decades in the name of sensational ratings, according to writer Kitty Kelley's latest unauthorized biography "Oprah."

The much-anticipated book details how:

  • Winfrey concocted stories about sexual abuse she suffered as a child -- and grossly exaggerated the poverty she was brought up in.
  • She went to great lengths to conceal her "lesbian affairs" -- including hefty payoffs -- and publicly attached herself to Graham to appear more normal to her audience of housewives.
  • She lavished romantic gifts -- including a diamond toe ring -- on ABC talking head Diane Sawyer.
  • Winfrey sold her body to earn extra money and has even described herself as a teen "prostitute."
  • She doesn't know the true identity of her biological father.
  • Her relationship with her own mother is so cold that Winfrey won't even let the older woman have her phone number.

Winfrey was born in Kosciusko, Miss., in 1954, and, the way she likes to tell it, she was so impoverished that she never had any new dresses or dolls and had to adopt two cockroaches as pets, naming them Melinda and Sandy.

But her family says that's nonsense.

She may not have been well off, but Oprah was relatively "spoiled" as a little girl, her cousin said.

"Where Oprah got that nonsense about growing up in filth and roaches I have no idea," said the relative, Katherine Carr Esters. "I've confronted her and asked, 'Why do you tell such lies?' Oprah told me, 'That's what people want to hear. The truth is boring.' "

A friend of Esters added that the manipulation of her past is a key to her success.

"Every move is calculated to further her brand and lift her image, which is why she does good works," Jewette Battles said.

As a teen, Winfrey was a wild child, promiscuous to the point of prostitution, her relatives said.

The future star would steal from her mother's purse, pawn her jewelry and even turn tricks. She was eventually sent to live in Nashville with Vernon Winfrey, who was her mother's former lover and who is listed on her birth certificate as her father. He has been described as the domineering disciplinarian who set her straight.

Later, determined to become rich and famous, Winfrey was ready to change her story to her advantage, making sure she cultivated her image as an everywoman, the book alleges.

That meant she had to quell rumors about her sexuality.

At one point, the rumors included seamy talk at ABC about a relationship between Winfrey and Sawyer when Oprah worked there.

Employees there described "giggly late-night phone calls" and a series of lavish gifts from Winfrey -- including gigantic sprays of orchids and a 1-carat diamond toe ring -- to Sawyer.

Despite such rumors, Kelley concludes Winfrey is "asexual ."

Still, she quotes sources describing how, in 1989, Winfrey was insistent on paying Tim Watts, an ex-boyfriend, $50,000 to keep quiet about her lesbian affairs and the fact that her brother, who died of AIDS, was gay.

"He said she did not want him to talk about her brother being gay," said Judy Lee Colteryahn, who also dated Watts.

"It's no big deal to have a brother who is homosexual, but apparently it was to Oprah. Tim also said he knew about some lesbian affairs."

As for Winfrey's very public relationship with Graham, the pair do not even share a bedroom, according to the book.

Landscape architect James van Sweden of Oehme, who spent years working for the couple, said he planned to design a space for a wedding in front of their new estate but knew immediately after watching them together that there would never be a wedding.

"Oprah keeps Stedman around because she wants her audience to accept her as a normal woman with a man in her life, but from what I saw during those four years, I can tell you there's nothing there with Stedman. Nothing at all," he said.

"He's simply a fixture in her life," van Sweden added. "Window-dressing."

According to her father, Vernon, Oprah admitted that she was not in love with Stedman.

"I'm in like . . . not in love," she told him, according to the book.

She did reportedly have one affair with a man -- "Entertainment Tonight's" John Tesh, while the two were working in Nashville.

According to Tesh's ex, he broke things off because he couldn't deal with the stigma of being an interracial couple.

"He said one night he looked down and saw his white body next to her black body and couldn't take it any more," the ex said. "He walked out in the middle of the night."

Winfrey has played coy on Tesh.

Vernon Winfrey says he's been dismayed by how Oprah plays fast and loose with the truth.

"She may be admired by the world, but I know the truth," he says. "So does God and so does Oprah. Two of us remain ashamed."

Vernon reserves his harshest words for Winfrey's best friend, Gayle King, who put the kibosh on a biography he was working on.

Calling her a "dirt hog" and "street heifer," he blames King for a rift in his relationship with Oprah.

"She's become too close to that woman Gayle," he says.

King and others in Oprah's entourage worked hard to keep a tight grip on employees in order to keep her out of the tabloids.

"I thought I would be working for the warm and fuzzy person I saw on television," a former employee at Winfrey's Harpo production company said. "But, God, I was conned. It's a cult at Harpo. So oppressive it's frightening."

Perhaps the biggest secret of the book is left a secret.

Oprah allegedly does not know the true identity of her father.

Esters told Kelley who he is, on the condition she not publish the information until Winfrey's mother comes clean to her daughter.

"And you'll know when that happens because Oprah will probably have a show on finding your real father," Esters said. "As I said, the girl wastes nothing."

CA - Seagal sued for allegedly keeping sex slaves

Original Article
Steven Seagal Accuser Boasted 'I Can Manipulate Men'

04/12/2010

By Josh Dickey

Former model claims actor assaulted her, kept ‘attendants’ on call

Steven Seagal is accused of hiring young women as personal attendants whose real job was to serve his strange and sometimes violent sexual desires, according to a civil lawsuit filed Monday in Los Angeles by a 23-year-old former model who describes her experience in harrowing detail.

The plaintiff, Kayden Nguyen, said she met the action star in February through an ad on Craigslist seeking an executive assistant and, after three interviews, was told to pack for a trip to New Orleans, where the A&E show "Steven Seagal Lawman" was taping.

When she arrived, the lawsuit says, she discovered that Seagal had been keeping two young female Russian "attendants" who were essentially on-call for sex — 24-seven.

On that first night, Nguyen was ushered to a secluded house where Seagal was staying with his wife and the two young women. He then proceeded to treat Nguyen as his "sex toy" despite her complaints, the lawsuit says.

She complained the following morning to some of the other employees, assuming that they would deliver the message to Seagal. Hours later, the lawsuit says he assaulted her again, this time forcing her to consume "illegal pills."

The following morning, when she confronted Seagal herself, he told her there had been a "misunderstanding"; but hours later, he assaulted her a third time, an attack that stopped only when she ran away, according to the lawsuit.

The ordeal carried on for several days, and it wasn't until Feb. 28 — the following Sunday — that she was able to escape the situation, the lawsuit says.

The lawsuit says Nguyen told Seagal that she had to leave to meet with family members who would be suspicious if she didn't show up. Nonetheless, he told her not to leave the house and followed her with a gun equipped with a flashlight as she went out to a waiting cab, which sped away as she jumped in the front seat.

A message left by TheWrap with the action star's attorney, Stuart Rosenthal, was not immediately returned Monday. Messages left with A&E were also not immediately returned.

It was not clear why Kayden Nguyen chose to file a civil lawsuit instead of a criminal complaint. Messages left with her lawyers were not immediately returned Monday.

Nguyen's lawsuit claims that even after she got away, Seagal and his employees tried desperately to persuade her to return. When she escaped, she left behind "everything of value she owned," including car keys, her laptop, clothes, and "hundreds of dollars worth of makeup." She was told she would not get the items back until she signed an agreement stating she would not report the sexual attacks.

The lawsuit says Nguyen had accepted the job on Feb. 22, a Monday, and was sped in a limo to a waiting private jet. Her first indication that something was awry was when Seagal told her, as the plane was taking off, that his wife "wouldn't mind if we had a sexual relationship."

Nguyen's lawsuit said she could identify a "unique physiological reaction" that Seagal has to sexual arousal, which could be corroborated by the other "attendants." The suit did not specify what that reaction is.

The lawsuit alleges sexual harassment in violation of federal labor laws; illegal sex trafficking; retaliation; wrongful termination; and false representations about employment. Each of the six counts seeks in excess of $1 million in damages.

CA - Fight for 'Chelsea's Law' - Typical knee-jerk reactions to a horrific crime!

This is just absurd, IMO. The man accused has not even been to court and found guilty yet, but everyone has already found him guilty and condemned him, and in the typical knee jerk reaction, they are pushing for another law in the name of a dead child, to target sex offenders, and it has not been proven yet he actually did the crime or she was sexually abused. At least from what I have seen. The man may indeed be guilty, but why not wait until after the trial and all the facts come out before you assume things! Nathan Fletcher, IMO, is an evil sick man. He did not waste any time before he jumped on this to make himself look better, even while the parents are still mourning and emotions are going crazy. They did the same thing with John Walsh as well.

People who took an oath to DEFEND the constitution, have no clue what it's about!



04/12/2010

By Kurt Nimmo

Article VI, clause 3 of the United States Constitution states the following:

The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the members of the several state legislatures, and all executive and judicial officers, both of the United States and of the several states, shall be bound by oath or affirmation, to support this Constitution.

Newly elected members of the House and Senate must recite the following oath:

I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.

It is difficult, however, to support and defend something you do not understand. Consider the following video. It was posted on YouTube today and shows the response of a Republican congressman allegedly representing the 2nd district of New Jersey after he is asked about the Constitution:

Video Link


But it is not simply Congress that knows nothing about the Constitution. Even Barry Soetoro, aka Barack Obama, is sketchy on the Constitution (he mistakes it for the Declaration of Independence), a remarkable feat for a supposed expert on constitutional law.

Video Link


I believe Newt Gingrich is a neocon and a charlatan who does not respect the Constitution either, but something he told Sean Hannity during the Obamacare tragedy sticks with me: “It would be fascinating to know, since he taught Constitutional law in Chicago, which Constitution was he teaching? Venezuelan constitutional law?”

Video Link


Of course, Newt supported Bush’s violations of the Constitution, so he is a hypocrite, but his comment about Obama is relevant, even if Gingrich is employing it as a cynical device in a game of Republican vs. Democrat partisan politics.

For Republicans and Democrats, the Constitution is something you kick around like a football. After the game is over, you shove it in a locker and forget about it.

House Minority Leader John Boehner is also a constitutional moron. During a Tea Party event (no doubt a Republican Tea Party event) he recited the words :”We hold these truths to be self evident” and said the words are from the Constitution’s preamble. Of course, they are from the Declaration of Independence.



Tea Party activists and the clueless Michelle Bachmann stood around like lobotomy patients.

Congress is a den of vipers in service to offshore bankers and transnational corporations. Obama is not a Marxist as the Republican Tea Party claims. He is a corporatist, as Ron Paul has noted. Congress and the White House are facades propped up to fool the American people and keep alive the cruel joke that we live in a “democracy” when in fact the country is supposed to be a constitutional republic.

Article IV, Section 4 of the Constitution states: “The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican form of Government.”

In a Republic, the sovereignty resides with the people. In a Republic, the people have no obligation to the government. Instead, the government is a servant of the people and obliged to its owner, We the People.

The way Obamacare was rammed through Congress — even though a majority of the people opposed it — is a glaring example of the fact the United States is no longer (and has not been for some time) a constitutional republic. In fact, it is not even a democracy because not even the mob rules — the plutocrats do.

Under Obamacare, the people have an obligation to the government and large insurance corporations, the exact opposite of what the founders intended. Thomas Jefferson is rolling over in his grave.

In the past, they threw us a few crumbs. Now they stick a gun in our faces and demand we shell out or hard earned money – that is, the money that is left after the government steals half of it — to fascistic corporations.

Under the current arrangement, we no longer need a Constitution and that is why our “representatives” are brain-dead about it. The Constitution is irrelevant. I pray to God we get it back. But I am not optimistic.

George Bush of the Bush crime family that supported the Nazis was unfortunately correct. In the United States, circa 2010, the Constitution is nothing but a goddamn piece of paper.
