Route 146 features suspect wanted for child porn

PROVIDENCE (WPRI) - The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is stepping up its campaign to identify suspects by plastering their pictures on digital billboards across the country, including several signs lining local highways.

The boards feature several different unknown sex offenders. Some of these, John Does have been wanted for years and the FBI hopes their digital initiative results in arrests.

If you drive south on 146, you may have noticed the digital billboard, and a new ad from the FBI. They're looking for an unknown sex offender.

Special agent Gail Marcinkiewicz of the FBI said, "It's through this program, they've taken on a very aggressive approach to identify unknown individuals involved in sexual abuse of children.”

The FBI launched the new initiative this Monday. The agency received free ad space on boards across the country.

"We don't know where John Doe is from. We're looking for the public's help," said Marcinkiewicz.

A digital wanted sign for John Doe number 8 sits on the 146 billboard near Branch Avenue. Doe is also featured on the FBI's website. He is described as a white male 180-200 pounds.He was indicted back in 2006 for knowingly distributing child porn.

The FBI got the images of his profile and marked arm from one of doe's pornographic videos. He's been difficult to find, but they hope the new billboards lead to an arrest.

If you see the sign and have any information you're asked to contact the FBI.

AUSTRALIA - Call for calm: Ferguson tensions boil over

View the article here

Why are the police just standing by and doing nothing?  They should arrest all the vigilantes involved, IMO.  The police are to protect all citizens, even those who may be despised, and yet they are not doing so. Yet more proof public notification and registries do not protect anybody, but are used by vigilantes to harm and/or harass those on those registries, and they should be offline and used by police only!

By Dina Rosendorff

Police were called to the Sydney suburb of Ryde overnight after a fight broke out near the home of convicted paedophile _____.

Earlier the New South Wales Police Commissioner called for calm as Sydney residents protested against his presence.

There has been a string of community demonstrations against the child sex offender, who recently moved into public housing in the suburb.

On Tuesday night an unlit petrol bomb was found outside his home and yesterday Ferguson's neighbours hung a hand-painted banner across his front gate, warning that a convicted paedophile lived inside.

"We won't have no problems with public housing whatsoever," _____'s neighbour Sean said.

"We have a problem with the people that may be placed in it and in this case _____, a paedophile."

"Whatever it takes, I'm not stopping - it's as simple as that. I ain't stopping until he's goes to an appropriate area."

Sean said neighbours were escalating their protest against the paedophile's presence in their midst.

"We're having a rally tomorrow night at 7.00 o'clock on our streets to make people more aware," he said.

"We've started a petition up to remove _____ from our area. We'll be putting up flyers, we'll be letting the local school know this afternoon with flyers."

"This is an educational way of dealing with it, not a vigilante thing."

New South Wales Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione has urged residents to keep their heads.

"My message to communities is this: please exercise some calm in this," he said.

"Don't take the laws into your own hands. Let the police work through with other government agencies to come up with a solution to what has been a highly emotional situation that we're dealing with right now."

Despite his neighbours' growing fury, _____ has told the ABC he will not bow to community pressure to move.

He says any attempt to remove him from his home would be costly, because he would seek compensation if forced out.

One of _____'s neighbours left a fake, cardboard coffin on his front door step on Wednesday morning and _____ told Channel Seven that would be the only way to transport him out.

"If that's the way they want to feel about it - I am not moving out. When I move out of here it is in a pine box," he said.

"And if that's the case then [New South Wales Premier] Nathan Rees has ordered my death and approved of my killing."

This so-called "killing" was the topic of discussion at a meeting convened by Mr Rees, where he sought advice from various government departments on relocating the convicted child sex offender.

In another off-air interview with the ABC, _____ said he moved to Sydney because he was sick and tired of being pushed around Queensland and he thought Sydney would be a fresh start.

'Community vigilantes'

Barrister Greg Barnes from the Australian Lawyers Alliance says relocating _____ could set a dangerous precedent.

And he says _____ will be entitled to compensation if he is forced to move.

"The basic principle [for] everyone in New South Wales, in every state in Australia, is that if you are living in a house and you are abiding by the law, then governments have no business in moving you to another area," Mr Barnes said.

"This is a policy that we would have expected to see in apartheid South Africa or in authoritarian countries, not in a democracy."

"Now there's no evidence that Mr _____ is breaking the law residing as he does in Ryde, and simply because a few community vigilantes want him moved on doesn't mean that our politicians should buckle to their pressure, " Mr Barnes continued.

"I don't know of any law in New South Wales or any law around Australia which entitles governments to capriciously simply move people from one house to another on the basis of the complaints of a few vigilantes in a community."

Mr Barnes says the way the community has reacted to _____ is the worst thing they could have done.

"If the New South Wales Government and the opposition parties and the community in Ryde were serious about reducing the possibility of recidivism by paedophiles, they wouldn't be setting this sort of example," he said.

"The worst thing you can do with child sex offenders is to continue to stigmatise and demonise them and shun them from society, because if you do that, they're much more likely to commit an offence."

"So by setting this example, effectively the New South Wales Government and the Opposition and those members of the Ryde community who support them are effectively saying, 'we don't care, we run the risk of increasing recidivism for paedophiles in New South Wales'."

On Wednesday morning there were revelations _____ had been selling merchandise on behalf of Diabetes Australia.

The charity says it will now overhaul its screening process.

VA - Discovery Museum Watching for Sex Offenders on Nearby Benches

View the article here

09/15/2009

Officials say convicted sex offenders are sitting on benches along the downtown mall in Charlottesville, just a few feet from the Virginia Discovery Museum, which is a place that attracts scores of kids.

This may not be a violation of the law, but it does have parents and museum officials concerned.

Virginia law requires sex offenders to register but not to stay away from where children play.

That means, while these offenders are not allowed near schools or playgrounds, they are allowed to sit on the benches near the carousel on the downtown mall, just feet away from parents and their children.

Joia Wood, with the Virginia Discovery Museum, says, "It was brought to our attention by one of the patrolling officers that there were some known sex offenders who were seeming to be lingering around the carousel area. So as soon as we found out, we started to do some research to find out of there was any ordinance to which would allow us to ask them not to sit there."

The museum was unable to find such an ordinance. The area surrounding the carousel is public space and therefore, sex offenders can not be told to leave.

The museum has adjusted its security cameras to monitor the area more closely and are working with the police department to ensure the safety of visitors.

$5.5M settlement for wrongly convicted Calif. man

BAKERSFIELD - A California county will pay $5.5 million to a man who spent nearly 20 years in prison after being wrongly convicted of child molestation.

Kern County supervisors approved the settlement for John Stoll in a closed session Tuesday.

Stoll was one of 46 people charged for their alleged roles in child molestation rings in 1982-86. Twenty-four of the 27 convictions, many of which involved no physical evidence, have been reversed as witnesses recanted stories and investigators’ techniques were questioned.

Stoll was freed in 2004 after five of his six alleged victims said they lied. He filed a federal lawsuit against the county.

Stoll and other defendants are the subject of the 2008 documentary “Witch Hunt” produced and narrated by actor Sean Penn.

TX - Ex-deputy accused of soliciting teen driver

View the article here

09/16/2009

A former Montague (mahn-TAYG') County deputy is accused of soliciting sexual favors from a 16-year-old girl during a traffic stop.

Brian Edward Henry has been free since posting $102,000 in bonds after his arrest last month following his indictment, which initially was sealed. It's unclear if he has an attorney.

The 27-year-old Roanoke man faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted of indecency with a child charge and a year in jail if convicted of official oppression.

Montague County District Attorney Jack McGaughey (mah-GOY') says Henry's arrest is unrelated to a jail scandal that rocked the county on the Red River. Earlier this year 17 people, including the former sheriff and some jailers, were indicted on charges of having sex with inmates or bringing them drugs.

http://freerangekids.wordpress.com/



Founder of www.freerangekids.com Lenore Skenazy is a syndicated columnist. Her often cheery, sometimes chiding pieces take a skeptical look at the culture that has brought us vitamin water for dogs, pole dancing for grannies and an S.A.T. vocabulary shower curtain for kids. As you might guess, Skenazy covers topics overlooked by most op-ed writers, including things like, My Dollar Store Addiction, and Don't Call Me From Your Car Just Because You're Bored?? Still, she also turns her attention to more serious matters, ranging from the proliferation of bio-terrorism research labs (which she sees as a menace) to the proliferation of cell phone porn (ditto). In all her writing, Skenazy sees herself not as a pundit, but as a normal, curious, often amused but just as often fed-up, middle-aged mom out to get the facts. Her observations can be heard on NPR: All Things Considered, she has written for Mad Magazine, and she edits the What Next humor contest in the magazine The Week. She also spent several years as an on-air (younger, cuter) Andy Rooney, first at CNBC and then at the Food Channel. Her book, "Free-Range Kids: Giving Our Children the Freedom We Had Without Going Nuts with Worry" was published by Wiley & Sons in April 09. And her book, "Who's the blond That Married Whats-His-Name? The Ultimate Tip of the Tongue Test of Everything You Know You Know But Cant Remember Right Now?"(www.whostheblondebook.com) is being published by Penguin in June. She lives in Manhattan with her husband and two extremely pre-teen sons.
