Stew in Misery or Become Activist

As a Registrant I have first hand experience of what it is like to be shunned, humiliated, persecuted and exiled. The first few years as a Registrant I could not help but to live in constant fear. Over the years I began to learn the truth about the registry and how propaganda and politics, along with a distorted public opinion, filled with a fury of hate and hysteria, transformed the registry into a public arena of a modern day Roman Colosseum, commonly called the Pedophile List. Soon my fear turned to anger and my humiliation to valiance.

For a time politicians had a free ticket to popularity only by appearing tough on crime by targeting sex offenders and introducing legislation directed only at those on the registry, it was a free ticket because it would be met with very little opposition. As laws were easily passed, soon the effects left a trail of casualties as parents, children, entire families and their friends felt the effects of it’s unintended consequences. Today, many of them have become activists in direct opposition to the very laws politicians relied upon to gain recognition.

We live in a free country. Many lives were expended so we as citizens could live free from tyranny and oppression. Has it now become that our own government is turning into the very evil we as a people stood against? This is nothing new, Hitler himself deceived the entire German people. Politicians are losing their grip, now facts and science are beginning to expose their deceptive tactics.

If you are weary from the oppression, if you are stressed from the bondage, if you have fear from persecution, if you are distressed from unwarranted accusations, if you have been unfairly stigmatized as a result of the Registry, would you like to do something about it?

SOSEN has a wealth of information, especially for the determined activist.

      Sosen is the best place to start. From there you can become educated about the facts. You can also find out if there are local support groups.
      Do not just sit around. By doing nothing will only serve to cause yourself more grief.

    I was accused at 20 and convicted at 22.. I spent 3 years in prison 2 years on parole and my life has been ruined.. never-mind the fact that my charges were a fabrication of a crooked cop, or the fact that my children’s safety was threatened and used as leverage to take a plea agreement..
    Everything was taken from me and the registration law has made my life a living hell!
    I can’t get a decent job despite the fact that after I got out of prison I went to college and graduated at the top of my class for advanced electronics and computer technology.. Education will not help you when you are a marked man as myself.. They never said that my sentence was 3 years to LIFE. they never said that I would be followed, harassed threatened and that I would have to register forever..
    I was supposed to register for 10 years and be done with it.. but the KBI sent me a little letter telling me that the law was changed and made retroactive and that I would have to register for life now..
    Now I cant even get a job at McDonalds or the local grocery store. How can people be rehabilitated if they are denied any opportunities?
    Companies like FedEx, Travel Centers Of America, BestBuy, Target Ect. Claim to be equal opportunity employers but deny any opportunities to registered sex offenders..
    Why with a 4.0 and honors am I cursed to forever work the worst jobs in america(If I can find work at all)?
    We need to stand together and make a difference.. We are American Citizens. Why should we be denied the American dream because of a stupid mistake in our past?

    One thing is for sure, if we sit and do nothing, Nothing will get better.. Only worse..
    We need to stand up and defend ourselves.. We need to make it better..
    Stand With me!

    I would like to see a plan of action from this site’s maintainers. Yes, there are many horror stories with being on the registry, but those stories do little to influence change. I honestly believe the ruling in Smith V. Doe served an alternate purpose. The precedent set by that case essentially said the GOV’T could use a database to monitor citizens.

    In the 90s such a thing would have been rejected by the public at large because of the fear of BIG BROTHER. SO the Feds figured the best way to approach getting what they truly wanted–Political security for those in power DEMS & REPUB good ole boys etc.–was to first get a ruling aimed at pedophiles then expand the programs from there.
    Any illusionist will tell you the trick is getting the audience to focus on other thing (a distraction) meanwhile the switch is made on the other (the object).

    Today we have the NSA, FBI, CIA using databases to monitor every citizen ( although they deny it for the most part) Without MR. Snowden’s revelation they would still be going unchecked. This is the crack that should be exploited by groups like this one. Political security is not equal to Public safety.

    We need leadership and action plans. This is not the first group to suffer under the thumb of entrenched gov’t., There are many lessons to be learned from Civil rights activists in the Black and Gay communities. We must embrace the same tactics.
