Vicky Henry, Women Against the Registry

Video Description:
Anyone convicted of a crime involving sex may be put on a public registry. At a conference on sex offender laws Vicky Henry, president of Women Against the Registry (WAR), tells of the horrendous consequences of the registry for the registrant and their family. There is no benefit to the society from the registry but quite the opposite.

In short, does anyone really believe that Congress when enacting the first sex offender registry (Jacob Wetterling through to the Adam Walsh Act), DID NOT KNOW what the enactment(s) would mean to sexual offenders. Oh sure, one can read the Congressional record and read how wonderful the floor speeches were and the covert speeches to ensure that NOTHING ON THE RECORD appeared "PUNITIVE" in intent, and/or motivation. Does anyone really believe that Congress who started all of this registry trash did not know what would come of it? Add to that the courts echoing all over the country that sex offender registration is, and here is the catch phrase, and punch line that gets you right in the heart - used so much it defies logic: "THE SEX OFFENDER REGISTRY IS "RATIONALLY" RELATED TO A LEGITIMATE GOVERNMENTAL PURPOSE, protecting those "vulnerable" persons from sexual offenders." When the courts state this, pack up your legal briefs and go home - period. Now is it Congress, or the states, or actually the courts to blame for their presumably "legal myopia" in error on the side of caution? Does sex offender registration really and truly protect anyone? So, I will ask again at the risk of beating a moribund mare: someone show us all the data, statistics, reports, studies etc. that conclusively prove that sex offender registration halts and deters sex crimes of any type.

NYPD now monitoring bathrooms? This is unreal,arresting men for "Shaking it off". Are they staring down women's restrooms as well and arresting the females they see inserting a tampon since it may be a movement the officer does not approve of?
Just another trap to add to the list along side Florida's Sheriff Grady Judd's internet entrapment. Adding this one to the rest makes 190 ways to be put on the sex offender list nationwide.Seems to me its law enforcement in these restrooms that are the predators and these men the victims.

It is truly a relief and good to know that the New York City Police Department have turned into "crotch-monitors" to ensure that a groin shake after urinating is not an act of "lewdness." I just wonder how Frank Reagan of Blue Bloods will handle this issue when he reads the law suits that will flow from this type of policing? Way to go AmeriKa, this is where we are already headed! So men, next time you are in New York, and have to urinate remember the golden rule, "if you "shake" it more then three times. . . . ." have bail money on hand.

What, the police force has nothing better to do than be in the bathroom making up arrests. Is this the new form of getting arrest counts up?

Ever see a politician holding up a baby and posing with it for PR photo? Now apply that logic to the registry. Do you actually think they CARE about that child and it's welfare? They are just pacifying and courting the prospective suckers for votes. "Oh, look! We got our PICTURE made with this man that is going to protect the future of our child! This man REALLY thinks our baby is CUTE." We are SO voting for this man!

Megan's Law? AWA? They don't actually CARE if it works or not, in reality, they all know that children are expendable and replaceable future voters and tax- payers; they just want to LOOK and SOUND good in front of the sheep in order to harvest EASY votes.

Opportunistic lawmakers offering to protect the little lambs from the wolves in exchange for votes.

Well, DUH!
Of course these laws are ineffective and abusive!
Since when has anything that came out of a state legislature or the U.S. Government ever helped anybody (at least, in the long run)?
They used to say that the pen was mightier than the sword. The pen is in the hand of the bureaucrats and the sword is the people's. However, "we the people" have given the sword to the bureaucrats and have given ourselves over to subjugation!
We are now at the mercy of the pen which required little effort except to make a string of failed promises to enact good policy...
God bless America!

This recent decision in June, 2014, was a very "narrow" one. The court blew off a few other critical claims and gave this petitioner a "half-loaf of bread. Better a half-loaf then a few crumbs.

I think anyone that tackles or challenges these sex offender laws has to have guts and a purpose for doing so. Lets face facts of all the people on the registry one has to think are they all really sex offenders or just caught up in all this by say an internet sting operation where there is a victimless crime that is set up for the purpose to create a crime of some sort all in the name of protecting a child. One has to wonder who are they protecting? While I can understand, speeding, drunk driving, or drug trafficking I can't understand why they make it legal for law enforcement to go into adult chat site's and conduct these stings. Preventing something from occurring and compounding something to occur are two different things.
Vicky Henry is not only for registry rights but I'm sure she doesn't believe in set-ups to catch a "would be predator" . What about the rights of the people that are involved in these set-ups? They have no rights only a type of plea bargain or deal of some sorts. If Government would put better thought into all this before they enact these law's that would make it right.
Lets face it there are people that prey on kids but when fictitious hits reality than the one is blindsided into all this legal battle.
Lets Give Vicky a hand in her efforts to stop all this madness and witch hunt hype. If a sex offender is going to do something with kids than that's nature of the beast, and I'm sure that you know as well as me that nobody can control nature as that department is in the hands of God.

There is definitely a change coming. Americans have had time to see that these laws are damaging their own families with over 750K registrants and growing. Universities and the military are now coming under attack from this radical feminist and conservative alliance. As a result, accusations are now outpacing assaults in the military and it is becoming an issue for troop morale. Many of the top people within the military and the intelligence community are catching on to the erosion of Liberty that these laws encourage. We live in uncertain times when the protection the military provides is essential. We cannot afford to fanny about with idiots and opportunists who push us towards tyranny with their primal sexual fears, hangups and panic. It's great to see this blog focus so much on positive stories about the activists and the victories they are achieving on all fronts. A big thanks to you for continuing to publish and keeping everybody informed. RSODL (Rehabilitated Sex Offenders Defence League)

My son is going thru hell right now, he's living a somewhat normal life he's working and has someone in his life while on parole following his conditions, the problem is with his agent, she is one of the meanest agents he has to deal with, she's on his back every little move he makes, can you tell me is there any way he can request another agent? Or anything he can do for his rights, thank you

I've always wondered if the legislators and courts honestly think that registration isn't punishment or if they just pretend they think that when they make laws or court rulings.

I am the Mother of a now registered sex offender my son case is one of those typical Romeo and Juliet he is only 23 yrs old my son went to jail for 1 year and one would think he paid his debt to society well as I was wrong. upon his realese we discoverd he had to register and was not alowed to come home to his family since the home I brought was 150,000 feet way from a park he was released with a ankle monitor for the next 3 year and a gps monitor my other children who awaited anxiously for there brother are not allowed to see him neither is his daughter who does not know her father. I can not begin to tell you what this has caused my family as a mother all I want is to bring him home to be able to heal so my family can be whole again not only is he still paying his debt so are we since we cannot begin to unite again. They released him with 50.00 in his pocket and gave him a voucher for 30 day paid motel witch houses only sex offender 5 in a room to be exact after 30 day he will have to pay the infested motel 500.00 a month to share this room when asked if he cannot pay this the answear was he be homeless in a designated park since we are not rich you can imagine my worries if that is not bad enough he needs to pay for sex offender classes 80.00 first visit plus 25.00 a week for the next few month and if he dont he will be in violation. How is this working if they can not come home to heal if you throw them out to society with no help what so ever if there homeless how do they track them no help to find a job what were these law maker thinking how is this suppose to help I dont condone crimes against cildren but to me this is not helping to keep them safe they need to be renistated to society in positive way so they can rehabilitate these laws make children even much unsafer if you cant track them and help them heal they cannot even visit a church as for me I am one desprate mother who is angry and appoled by this my younger children have acted up are now in counseling cause of this all they want is there family to be whole again thank you

And people think it's only the people ON the sex offender registry that they have to worry about. Quite an eye-opener to the puppets of the voter hungry politicians, isn't it? Stupid puppets.

Jason Sanders said...

Wow isn't technology amazing. I wonder when they are gone to have a set up like this for the "Mark of the Beast" than everybody in the country should be aware that were all sinners. Does the sex offender really have some type of disease? Or is that just the elite of sin's of the flesh.
Its getting to be the Sex offender is an elite group unto themselves, far better than a murderer or a bank robber. When you actually look it in black and white..... that person that urinated on the street..... considered a sex offender or that one that got duped up in these internet sex stings are really just guilty of conscious.
Next , it will be the person giving one the "bird" that will be on the sex registry" Now truth is "God" knows the background of everybody and it seems that government with their high tech machines is trying to play God... Now I'm all for safety but sometimes things go a bit to far to cover up other issues.
What a world we live in today.

While there all man made belief's one has to hold to the true belief in God and his Son...... your belief's are your belief's.... but still the point is that With God all things are possible with man it is impossible.
Sure the sex offender is considered the lowest of the low. yes in man's view there is no hope and we are in bondage. Would God want us to be in bondage?
As far as Supreme Court law's go it would seem that they are acting in pride and using the sex offender to an advantage... sin is sin and everybody has wrong thoughts, carnal knowledge, has did something that they have regretted in their life.
Sure man would like to hold us in bondage. Isn't that what a one world government does. I would much rather believe in God and his Son Jesus Christ and his teachings than believe in Man's... Just take a look at the bible and see that the sex offender was immoral back than but you see they changed. Only God can take a bad thing and make it good in the life of a person.
Man does not forgive.... its the nature of the beast... unless the man or the world hold more to the biblical principals and its teaching...... where does the words, " love thy neighbor as thyself come into play in any of this?

The blind in the house are leading the blind. This Megan's law or this Megan gal was an isolated case and a few others were the same. Seems to me they go a bit to far. Look at what the one on the registry has to go thru because of all this. Can't courts read the "Writings on the Wall". These laws' oppress people and government doesn't seem to care. So they eat, drink and be merry and let the people suffer. The so called sex offender is no more of an offender than the government that offends others with this form of governmental laws' and there pride. I would think the law wants to take away our dignity by keeping us all in bondage in some fashion. People wake up and fight. The law seems to want to bully those sex offenders around so shout it from all over America. Were tired as hell and were not goina take it!

We can't have a discussion on government enforcement of such a program without discussion of funding and oversight. I have yet to see a cost analysis of any program involving post-supervision registrations federal or local. There must be some group who has studied this appalling social experiment as of late...? Surely our own government would have taken the time to jot down some statistics...? We have had AWA issues since 2006. I believe an unabridged exposé would make for a wonderful tenth anniversary of this atrocity of human rights. There are enough of us now to make a plea for minority status, create our own jobs and unions and to sue the United States government via a class action lawsuit for damages. Or, we can all just sit down and become the burden to society everyone seems to want: all sex offenders on food stamps and government assistance instead of having decent jobs like everyone else. Let me tell you, I have been fired from jobs simply because I was on the registry. I have never been convicted of a crime, but because withheld adjudication doesn't mean anything anymore, I have to register. Think of all the money many people like me have forfeited simply because our name is on a registry...doing what we are SUPPOSED to do: towing the line, and it only seems to matter as a course to stay out of jail, not to have an opportunity to better ourselves. To better our lives. Remember this about the AWA: There was never any proof that Adam Walsh was abducted and killed for sexual reasons. They only found his head and the alleged perp never confessed to a sexual assault. Once again, the knee jerk child named laws are full of lies. We need to band together in local and state chapters to collect the funds to fight back. I'm sure there are attorneys out there who would be happy to help.

If the laws were effective in preventing crimes, there would have been a drop in the number of crimes committed, but since the listing of offenses is ever-expanding, the rate of crimes goes up by inflated numbers, effectively making the real offense rares unclear while bolstering budgets on those inflated stats. The registry lost its purpose and it's effectiveness by being all-encompassing. The original intent was to keep a close eye on the very few who were the worst of the worst. The problem with maintaining such a registry is that there aren't enough worst of the worst offenders to make a registry fiscally sound - or profitable for private ventures, such as private prisons and government contracted monitoring devices and other services. Follow the money. That's the answer to any ludicrous program like this. Think about it: our government doesn't make any decision without data and statistics to back it up as a matter of course. In this case, ALL data is completely ignored. Red flag, anyone? If you can't smash it with a hammer, you can kill it by 1000 paper cuts. It's time to lobby, petition, take up funding, start a PAC...whatever is necessary to legally chop the legs out from this beast. We have the numbers and over a decade of statistics. We are all on the same team here. We have a common cause. Let's work together to end this travesty of perverted justice.
