CA - Saturday blitz targets Sacramento sex offenders

Original Article


By George Warren

SACRAMENTO - Scores of police officers, sheriff's deputies and federal agents fanned out across Sacramento County Saturday, hoping to surprise many of the county's 4,000 registered sex offenders.

"The results of your efforts today will protect victims, because they'll never become victims," Sacramento County Sheriff John McGinness told the crowd of law enforcement officers that gathered just after sunrise for a briefing at the Florin Service Center.
- So tell me, what is the purpose of probation and parole officers?  At one time, it was their job to check on those they are monitoring.  Now the Gestapo come out, in a show of force to further "pretend" to be "protecting" the sheeple from their "bogus fear" spread by the media.  What about all the sex offenders who have yet to be caught?  The Gestapo busting down doors, does not protect anybody.  If a person is intent on committing a crime, they will regardless of the Gestapo, or the laws on the books.  You people keep living in Wonderland and taking the placebo they are giving you.

The sheriff's department organized the second annual sex offender sweep known as Valley Guardian. A federal grant will pay the overtime for the 160 people involved.
- Using grant money for stupid raids that do nothing, except help them on their PR campaign!  So, every year they decide to carry out these raids, are they going to use grant money?  That money could be used for a better cause than some PR campaign, IMO!

Sheriff's Sgt. Jeff Reinl, who heads up the child abuse division, said one goal of the operation is to make sure sex offenders are actually living at their reported address. He said some will have mail sent to a friend or relative to give the appearance of a permanent address so they can avoid the more stringent registration requirements for transients.

"The guys who are dirty do everything they can not to get caught," Reinl said.
- And if they are intent on committing a crime, do you really think this or the laws will protect you?  Well, it won't!

McGinness said if nothing else, he wanted registered sex offenders in Sacramento County to know they are being watched. "We want those people who have a tendency to violate others in a sexual way to know we know who they are," the sheriff said.
- Most on the registry are their due to one bad mistake, so making it seem that most "have a tendency" to commit sexual crimes, is just a joke!  Most studies show that the recidivism of sex offenders is lower than any other criminal, yet they need you to be uninformed and ignorant, so they can continue to practice breaking down doors, etc.  One day, the Gestapo will come busting in your door as well.

Sex offenders on parole or probation can be searched without cause and without a warrant. But veteran officers say a surprising number of non-searchable Megan's Law registrants will consent to a search if they are asked politely.
- If you are currently a sex offender, are off probation and/or parole, NEVER consent to a search. If they want to search your person or home, make them get a warrant! It's not about you having nothing to hide, it's about privacy and rights.

A 54-year-old man convicted of lewd and lascivious behavior with a child spoke to News10 after his North Highlands apartment was searched by Reinl and his partner, sheriff's Det. Brian Shortz.

"I comply with all the laws. I have since I got in trouble. It's just not worth it. It was a stupid mistake," the man said. News10 did not identify any sex offenders who were found to be in compliance.

Sheriff's spokesman Sgt. Tim Curran said operations like this one have helped give Sacramento County the state's highest conviction rate for Megan's Law registration violations.
- So is that what it's about?  Convictions?  Keeping the prison industrial complex alive, making money, based on fear and disinformation!  Injustice as usual!

Curran said the 80 two-person teams were hoping to contact as many as 1,700 registered sex offenders on Saturday, just less than half the total number living in the county.

CA - Cop Investigated in Fake Arrest of Teen Daughter's Boyfriend

Boy's Parents Filmed Part of 'Arrest,' Say Motorcycle Cop Went Too Far

A California motorcycle cop crossed the line when he staged a fake arrest of his 14-year-old daughter's 15-year-old boyfriend after learning the two had sex, the boy's parents said.
- I understand him wanting to scare them, but think about it, if he was doing this to the male, why not his daughter as well?  After all, she also had sex with an underage child!

The San Jose Police Department may agree. Its internal affairs division is investigating the incident, which the boy's parents captured on cell phone video, a police department spokesman said.

The incident occurred on Aug. 30, according to ABC San Francisco station KGO-TV, whose media partner The San Jose Mercury News obtained the video.

The officer had just found out that his daughter had sex with her boyfriend, who she had been dating since middle school, according to the newspaper.

The boy's parents said the officer showed up at their house in his uniform, riding his police department motorcycle, told the boy he was going to arrest him for sexual assault and put him in handcuffs.

"It does not bode well for you. Do you know what that means? No? Not a good thing that the person you had sex with is a cop's daughter. The district attorney will probably file charges," the cop is heard saying in the video.

The family's attorney said even if the officer was trying to use "scared straight" tactics, he went too far.

"He made comments like, 'You don't mess with a cop's daughter.' That's a show of authority, that's inappropriate," attorney Tony Boskovich told KGO. "Applying force, applying handcuffs, threatening the young man with things such as rape in prison."

"He acted like a cowboy. He lost it, he came in and he abused his authority," Boskovich said.

But the officer's attorney said the boy's family knew what the officer was doing and did not object.

"The officer was essentially invited to use 'scare straight' tactics, and there were no objections to the lecture or the handcuffing," lawyer Terry Bowman said. "Everything was done in the spirit of reaching a troubled young man who is heading down the wrong path."
- So how is having sex being a "troubled teen?"  And I'm sure we are not getting the entire story, but what about his own daughter, who also had sex with an underage male?

FRANCE - Google to Pay Damages in France for Sex-Offender Search Terms

Original Article


By Laurence Frost

Google Inc. was ordered by a French court to pay 5,000 euros ($6,750) in damages to a convicted sex offender because its search engine suggested keywords including “rapist” when his name was entered.

The ruling by the Paris high court on Sept. 8 is carried in full by website, an aggregator of French legal decisions. It was reported earlier today by Le Monde, which said the unidentified plaintiff was separately appealing a conviction for “corruption of a minor.”

In the ruling published online, the court found that some search terms proposed by the “Google Suggest” and “Associated Search” tools in response to the plaintiff’s name were defamatory.

It ordered Google to block the suggested search terms and pay the plaintiff damages as well as full costs.

Myriam Boubil, a spokeswoman in France for Mountain View, California-based Google, said she couldn’t immediately comment when contacted today by Bloomberg News.

PA - Girl Let Off a Wrong Bus Stop NOT Molested and Left For Dead

Original Article

All you freaked out parents may also want to watch out for the mythical "bus surfin' pedophiles" as well, which John Walsh (fear monger) claims exists!


By Lenore Skenazy

It happens every so often at the beginning of the school year and this September was no exception. The Daily Item in Sunbury, Pa., reports that, sadly, a 7-year-old was let off at the wrong bus stop the other day, even after she told the bus driver it was not where she was supposed to get off. It was, instead, four blocks from her house.

The father of another child at that stop helped the girl get home. But, her parents note (according to the article), "She could just as easily have encountered a predator. "

Really? "Just as easily?" So it's a 50-50 split now, between predators and everybody else on the street? If one person's walking a dog, the next one is probably carrying some duct tape and chloroform?

Why doesn't the reporter bother to inject a little skepticism about this outlook?

Because the media are invested in making everyday life dramatic and scary.

The article quotes the parents as saying the child has sworn off buses for the rest of her life (considering how close she came to being sold into white slavery, I guess). And the father told the paper that he thinks "parents who have their children ride school buses should be very concerned."

Look, if this incident happened to my child, I, too, would have been very concerned. And I'd complain to the bus company and I'd make sure we got it all figured out, and I'd probably want the idiot driver who didn't listen to my kid to get some kind of punishment. And possibly a brain transplant.

But one upsetting incident does not mean the whole system is screwed up and our children are in danger. And yet, that's exactly how we're being conditioned to think -- by stories like this. When you get right down to it: What was this other than the tale of a kid who got left at the wrong bus stop? I'm sorry, that's just not news. It's only news when it can be elevated to a brush with death, which is what the media are constantly doing. And they do this so well that we have all started to think the same way: A blip in my child's day? She could easily end up DEAD!

Alarmism becomes second nature. We can't go with the flow. And yet the fact is there are always bumps in life. Humans, even children, weather the vast majority of them just fine. That's part of how you grow up and get smart.

You can bet that 7-year-old girl is going to stand up for her rights, and even learn her way around the neighborhood. A neighborhood probably filled with a lot more dog walkers than chloroform-carrying creeps.

ND - Police chief, ex-judge (Randall Hoffman) charged in abuse case

Original Article



BISMARCK – A North Dakota police chief and former state district judge has been charged with 52 felonies accusing him of molesting and attempting to rape a girl over the course of about five years, authorities said Friday.

Elgin Police Chief Randall Hoffman, 55, is accused of having sexual contact with the girl beginning in 2005, a criminal complaint said. It alleges Hoffman "engaged in at least 50 sexual acts" with the girl, who is now 17, from August 2008 until this month, then attempted to rape her Wednesday.

Hoffman is charged with a single count each of gross sexual imposition and continuous sexual abuse of a child. The sex abuse charge carries a maximum penalty of life in prison without the possibility of parole. He also faces 50 counts of corruption or solicitation of a minor, each of which carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison.

Elgin is a community of about 700 people 90 miles southwest of Bismarck, and Hoffman was its only police officer, prosecutors said. He had been chief since 2005, Mayor Duane Schatz said, and has been on administrative leave since his arrest Wednesday.

Hoffman, who is being held at Mercer County jail in Stanton, appeared by video Friday before South Central District Judge Thomas Schneider in Bismarck and was ordered held on a $500,000 cash bond. His next court appearance is Oct. 11.

During the hearing, Hoffman requested a court-appointed lawyer and said nothing about the allegations against him. He did say that he does not have an alcohol problem, does not do drugs and has family who would be willing to be responsible for him if he were freed on bond.

Hoffman did not respond Friday to messages for him left on the jail's voicemail system.

Jim Vukelic, the Grant County state's attorney, said at the bond hearing that the number of charges against Hoffman were "purposely underestimated" and that there was "strong corroboration" for allegations detailed in a Bureau of Criminal Investigation affidavit in the case. Schneider ordered the document sealed.

Hoffman was a state district judge in Jamestown for almost five years before resigning in April 1999, after a disciplinary complaint accused him of showing disrespect for the court system. Hoffman had criticized another judge's handling of his divorce case.

He was later twice suspended from practicing law and ordered to undergo anger management counseling. Court documents also show he was accused of stalking his former wife.

Hoffman ran unsuccessfully for Stutsman County prosecutor a year after his resignation, and sought election in 2002 to the same judgeship he had left. Earlier that year, he asked Gov. John Hoeven to appoint him to an East Central District judgeship in Fargo, saying in a letter that his previous difficulties were nothing to worry about and he had "high moral character." He did not make a list of finalists for the job.

Hoffman no longer has a license to practice law.
