It was a video of the person outside a sex offenders home, screaming and yelling for the man to come outside (Now Deleted). See our video below. Tell us, do you think the voice in our video, which is from his original deleted video, and the voice in his new video below match?
The description on the video was "[name withheld] is a sex offender. I'm going to bother him until he fights me or I get bored."
My friend then left a comment on the video telling them that harassing an offender by using information on the registry (see below) was a crime.
That is all that was posted on the video, no threats were made.
He also had a link to his site on the YouTube channel, which is how we found the other info about him.
As soon as the comment was made by my friend, the person deleted the video and the entire channel.
Now, another channel just popped up, the date on the channel shows 09/23/2011, but we believe it was created today, with the persons machine having the wrong date, but we could be wrong. Doesn't matter anyway.
We did not say we were going to press charges against him, like he claims in his new video (which we've also downloaded).
We simply emailed the LA sheriff's office (SOCPR@dps.state.la.us) asking about using the registry to harass someone. Someone we know contacted the person he was harassing, and they are aware of Mr. Somar. Him and his wife were frightened about the incident, and are talking with a lawyer.
Anyway, this is all we will say about this. We posted it, not to harass anybody, but to show how people use the registry to harass those on the registry, and to show why the registry should be taken offline and used by police only!
You can check out Google for Mr. Joe Somar, yourself.

It would seem that Mr. Somar, who claims it's not him in the video, complained to YouTube and they removed our video. You know, if it's not him, why go through so much trouble? Well, here it is again.
