Man Lives 1,700 Feet From Day Care

MARTINSVILLE - People who live along a rural road in Morgan County are trying to pressure a convicted child molester who recently moved to a home there to leave.

Residents have posted signs near the rented home of [name withheld], 67, and his wife in the 700 block of North Buffalo Road, west of Martinsville.

[name withheld] pleaded guilty in 2000 to molesting an 8-year-old girl. He was released in 2006, according to the Indiana Sex Offenders Registry, and is still on parole.

Legally, there is no reason he can't live in the home.

"We want him to go," said neighbor Rick Woods. "I've posted a 4-by-8 (foot) sign in my yard telling anyone who passes by that he lives there."

On the other side of the home [name withheld] lives in, a bright yellow sign is posted in the yard of Angel and Eric Honaker, who used to let their children play in the woods behind their home.

"I'm going to be keeping a close watch on them now," Angel Honaker said.

[name withheld]'s wife told 6News' Stacia Matthews that neighbors have nothing to fear.

"We're just old people trying to live in peace," she said. "We have no intention of leaving."

[name withheld] lives about 1,700 feet from a day care center, well outside the 1,000-foot restriction, but too close for comfort for some residents.

"We can't do anything about them. It's a fact," [name withheld] said. "I'm sorry the neighbors feel that badly against us. I guess they fear us."

Dawn Goss, owner of the day care center, said one family pulled their two children after learning of the sex offender nearby.

"He has every legal right to be there as much as I have to live here," Goss said. "There's nothing we can do. Our hands are tied."

[name withheld] said she and her husband like the home and might want to stay there permanently.

"(We're) not moving. The people renting it to us are great. We might even have a chance to buy it," she said.

Judge Mathis Calls U.S. Prison System Modern Day Slavery

Original Article

Story Description:
Judge Mathis was on 106th and Park yesterday. He answered questions about his beliefs on the prison system. He criticized the prison system for selling prison labor to various companies for less than a dollar a day. Mathis pointed out that Black men are 60% of the prison population and also talked about the trap of bad schools and no opportunities that often results in African American men being in prison. Mathis has been actively speaking about the prison industrial complex for some time, now here’s an interview he did with CNN on the issue.

Video Description:

I agree 100% with what Judge Mathis says in this video.

PRISON IS A BUSINESS AND BUSINESS IS GOOD!

Why do you think people are called career criminals? It's not because they want to continue to commit crime, it's because society forces them into a life of poverty and crime, and thus the prison business continues. They are set up to fail from the start, so they can keep the prison business, in business.

Yes it is modern day slavery!

Just ask anybody who has been in jail or prison. They will tell you that:
  1. Crime on the inside is rampant.
  2. Drugs are everywhere.
  3. Murder is common.
  4. Beatings by guards and other inmates, is common.
  5. Sexual abuse by guards and other inmates, is common.
  6. Corruption is everywhere.
  7. Therapy and education is almost non-existent.

They are just thrown behind bars, not given any therapy or education, treated like animals, not segregated, so beatings and murders run wild. They are forced (in most cases) to work for free, or cheap, which is slave labor.

You see, the slave masters need slaves, so they make sure you will fail and their slavery business continues to churn.

But you see, when you have spewed hate on national TV, saying we should "lock them up and throw away the key," you plant that seed into the general public, and it's almost impossible to climb back up that slippery slope!

Until we start treating people as the human beings they are, and with respect, then nothing will change.

Just ask many in jail or prison, they can tell you a lot about respect!
