Chelsea King Press Release

In the aftermath of the murder of Chelsea King, Legislators backed by the King family are trying to come to grips with the death of this young lady, whose life fell tragically into the hands of a dangerous individual. 
As duly noted in any murder of a child, communities are outraged as this heinous crime takes center stage in a controversial issue regarding sex offender laws and the implementation of such laws to protect our most vulnerable.  In response to the tragic death of a young woman with a promising future, we now are subjected to one more law promising to protect children; this is Chelsea’s Law.
In conjunction with the King family, California Assemblyman Nathan Fletcher of the 75th District has called for a full review of all the laws on the books in order to find the gaping holes in the system which allowed this tragedy to occur.  In recent days, Fletcher appeared on a KPBS program titled “These Days” with Maureen Cavanaugh and a panel of experts to discuss his concerns.  Fletcher stated,

The Weary Offender


By Triedbyconscience

Go to sleep, weary offender,
though you’ve not offended more,
those that write the laws don’t listen,
they’ve always got to up the score.

You don’t dare think about tomorrow,
but take a quiet, well-earned rest,
If there’s a God up there in heaven,
he’ll soon clutch you to his chest.

If you pay a thousand years, for the past that you have known,
you’ll never know of mankind’s mercy, for such isn’t shown,
They keep you too poor to live, and much too poor to die,
and hold hostage your family, no matter how they cry.

Go to sleep, weary offender,
for you have your registry,
the ones who cry for your destruction,
will soon be registered, you see.

The hand of justice is a broad one,
though they cry, it’s not for you,
They don’t care ’bout the constitution,
or ’bout anything that’s true.

If you had a hundred lives, they’d still cry out, unsatisfied,
for Justice’s scales are weighted, no matter how you’re tried,
and if you ever get ahead, well, change the law, we’ll see him dead,
and even take away the place, where you lay your head.

So go to sleep, weary offender,
for soon all will be like you,
when power’s wielded against one group,
‘fore too long it will be two.

It doesn’t matter what your rights are,
They cry out, all night and day,
but when it comes to their own offending,
congress will just turn and look away.

What was the purpose of the jail, or prison cells, if freedom fails,
and nations weep inside their sleep, as away from them liberty sails,
and what was the worth of our time,

KY Upholds Ruling that Ex Post Facto Implementation of Res. Restrictions is Punishment and Unconstitutional

Kentucky’s Attorney General’s Petition to the U.S. Supreme court on Residency Laws – DENIED

  3-8-2010 Washington DC:

Posted at the US Supreme court on the docket for Kentucky v. Baker (09-775) is a note that the high court has DENIED the Kentucky AG’s Petition.

It is not suprising that the petition was denied since it was based on the personal opinion of one person and not a mass of Kentucky courts in disagreement with each other.

Such means that Kentucky’s residency laws -for the moment- will not be applied retroactively to those convicted before the date of enactment of the residency laws. Full RULING BELOW

Reflections of History



          There stands no greater threat to humanity than a ruler who fails to learn from the past. The mistakes and misdeeds of men and monsters have been preserved in literature and in recorded history. Young men and women spend years in school learning about atrocities committed by men with names like Hitler and Goering. Some of these go on to college where they learn even more and yet for some reason once they leave these schools of learning this knowledge fades away. In time some of these people run for political office and once elected they begin to push for laws to control those who elected them. It is an age old problem one that has brought about such sayings as,
