TN - Police Cracking Down on Those Breaking Sex Offender Laws

Original Article

Just because someone wears the "sex offender" label doesn't mean they are a child molester or pedophile.


By Daniel Hight

Memphis – Draw a one mile circle around the intersection at Corning and N. Trezevant and you’ll find almost 40 registered sex offenders. Most of their crimes are violent in nature.

Sex offenders violating the rules are a city-wide problem. Police arrested [name withheld], [name withheld], [name withheld], [name withheld] and even women like [name withheld] and [name withheld], just to name a few.

Just to actually look at that person you honestly cannot tell that person would be a sex offender, so you don’t know who is living next door to you,” said Christine Grandberry.

A sweep by the Memphis Police Dept. landed 20 sex offenders in jail this week for violating sex offender laws. Police have warrants out for 30 more.

Amillia Guffin’s brother, [name withheld], is one of those arrested in Operation DNA. She says her family has tried to get him help for the last 20 years, but couldn’t. She says he would target kids headed to and from the nearby school.

Who is going to protect the kids coming home from school and not only that, that was my brother, so you have the parents that were ready to bust his head open,” said Guffin.

He was still in jail Saturday night and Guffin couldn’t be happier. She as well as others around town believe it’s important to protect children.

I don’t think it’s right for them to be messing with no school kids or nothing like that, that’s foul, that’s foul altogether,” said Mario Young. “I hope they get them all. I really do.”

The Michigan Sex Offenders Registration Act requires offenders convicted of a misdemeanor to verify their address once in the beginning of each year, according to the Michigan State Police.

Offenders convicted of a felony must verify their address quarterly during the first 15 days of January, April, July and October. Failure to register is punishable by a graduated penalty ranging from a 93-day misdemeanor to a four-year felony.

Convicted offenders must also report a change of address within 10 days or face a four-year felony.

According to the Michigan Sex Offender Registry, there are 254 registered sex offenders living in Midland County.

Lawless America - The Movie is all about exposing the fact that we now live in Lawless America.

Movie Description:
The Movie is all about exposing the fact that we now live in Lawless America. We no longer have laws that are enforced because judges do whatever they want to do. America has also become lawless because government officials are dishonest and/or corrupt.

The movie will expose corruption in every state. The Movie will focus on victims. Corrupt judges and corrupt government officials will be exposed, and we will confront a number of the crooks.

If anyone has ever questioned the story of a person who has expressed the view that they were a victim of the government or of judges, this movie will prove that the odds are that the corruption report was true. In fact, there are probably tens of millions of victims in the United States who never realized what happened to them.

One feature length documentary movie is being produced. It will be shown in theaters, on Netflix, Blockbuster, and other such video places, and the movie will be presented at the Sundance Film Festival and other film festivals.

In addition, videos will be produced for each state and for each type of corruption. Everyone who is interviewed for the film will record a three-minute segment that will be done as testimony before Congress as well as a 30-60 minute on-camera interview with Bill Windsor, founder of and GRIP, and candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives. The legislators in each state will receive the testimony from those in their state, and the members of the U.S. House and Senate will receive all of the testimony nationwide.

Over 750 people are already scheduled to be interviewed for the movie.
