Surely you are not one of those who is one, but just has not been caught????? Everybody in America should have rights no matter what they have done or not done. If it is a true victim, then everyone would want them protected, but since most of them are not true and most are over nasty divorces etc. I can only hope and pray you don't have to eat your words someday. They are saying now that every family in America has been touched by this one way or the other in their families. It destroys families. And again,
"No they did not ALL commit a crime". Maybe it should happen to you and then you will know what the phrase means "what goes around comes around".

You are likely right. Just like when they sign those plea bargains. No one is ever told the true story about what happens when they sign it. I have been lobbying for recorded, videos where they prove a person has been explained exactly what that means. There has been no proof in the past.

Please people, if you see what I have been saying on here today, call your State Reps and Congressmen and tell them you want this stopped. Write letters because when it happens to you, it is too late. Write the letters before it happens to you. This nonsense must be stopped.

Call for Full, complete investigations which includs the accuser and why they may be doing this to the person. Every state has their own set of problems. Many states do not even have a law on the books which makes it a State Jail Felony to lie on someone about these kind of charges. Texas did in 2005 after many years of writing. The myth that it takes years to change a law is just a myth. They can get their act together when they want to. So push for honesty in these charges and full invetigations. Also request they do not listen to lobbyist who are trying to sell the ankle monitors for all of them. That is a money maker for the companies who sell them and totally un-necessary. Again, the crime should fit the punishment. If they have raped and killed, then put the monitors on them. But not all have done that.
And get this

The accuser does not even have to take an oath. Proof? Anonymous tip lines! And the anonymous person does not even have to show up in court. They know who the anonymous tipper is of course, but they will not divulge that. Yet they do no investigations on the accuser from anonymous tip lines. They take their word as truth and nothing but the truth.

Anybody who is a registered sex offender has certain conditions to them being registered. Without any of us going into the state(s) sex offender laws, it's speculative to say that any of it is a waste of resources and time or that is a violation of the pervert's rights. The whole point of the sex offender registration is so that the pervs can be more easily managed. Regardless of parole status I don't think any previously convicted sex offender should have the right to have contact with anyone else's child.
This is where you are wrong, they all are not pervent's ,so if you have been in law enforcement you are not aware of what is really going on!

Don't know about Georgia but in Texas if you have ever held a baby or small child with their buttuks resting on your forearm you are a scumbag. My bet is you have done the above. So, hello scumgag.

If you have ever changed a baby's diaper or given a baby a bath then the law says you are a child molester and pervert. Do some extensive research on sexual or child abuse laws in Texas and you will find I speak the truth. You can find this information at the PHC library in Paris Texas.

It really does sound unconstitutional. Someone should look into this. I doubt if turning yourself into custody every Halloween is part of sentencing.

The law does not state it exactly the way you are saying it here. If someone sees you and says you touched the child inappropriately while changing a diaper or giving them a bath, then they can press charges on you whether you did what they said or not. This has also been done. Yet, the law is behind the person who accused you and not you even if you were just innocently giving the child a bath or changing their diaper. Some attorneys have told women to do this in divorces when the woman expresses concern over the father seeing the child. The attorney said, "Well, he changed their diaper or he gave them a bath so he touched the child.". It is screwed up to say the least.

Thunder Road, the law if if you touch a child even through their clothing that you can be charged with a sex offense. I know what you are saying here. So if you are holding a child as you state and someone sees you and decides to get you this way, they can.

touch a woman or a man the same way through their clothing while dancing, one can get you for getting too close and touching them through their clothing. There was a case on this one that really happened. Forgot the name right now, but it is on the law books.

A case in Texas was where a step-father was accused. He was in a wheelchair. Wife was having an affair and decided to divorce him. She had the step-daughter accuse him of having sex with her for over a year. When the step-daughter was questioned, they ask her on video if she had could identify anything unusual to prove she had seen him naked. She said no. I believe she said he was awfully white--meaning no tan or anything. In reality the man had a colostomy bag and she did not identify that? They ask her further about any type of medical equipment besides the wheelchair and she said there was none. They gave her every chance to tell about the colostomy bag and it was clear in the video she had not seen him naked. But when it went to court, they convicted this rich man and sent him to prison. Guess who got the house and all he owned? The wife and her lover! The man was rich. But not any more. He did not take a plea bargain and fought it because he had plenty of money to fight, but still lost it all in the end. Because people have been programmed that everyone is guilty in these cases. DA's love the convictions even if they are only plea bargains because they run their campaigns on conviction rates.

The news media has done an awful thing on this in blowing cases out of proportion which should not be and using bad cases like Cuey and a few others to claim they are all alike. I like Fox News, but do not like Bill O'Reilly for his pushing on these laws on people's emotions. Bill O'Reilly was abused himself as a child. Think he has forgotten that they claim if you have ever been abused, you will abuse. So does that make him an offender? You know they say whoever screams the loudest is usually the most guilty. Probably when it comes down to what the laws say. So if we want to assume, then go ahead and assume all they say is correct.

It would pay us all well, to get back to the Constitution and running our courts correctly. Plea Bargains are claimed to save the county money. But they save the face of the Prosecutor more. If you want to get down to it, he/she is the one who benefits the most. When these people get out and cannot get a job to pay their parole fees, then it does not help or save the county. It cost the county much more in the long run.

People have been looking into this for years. It is all over the internet or used to be. Used to be under False Accusations or something like that and I don't remember how to get there, but there were lots of horror stories in there that happened to people. We could not use their names, because there were no names used in the blogs. We could not use any of the cases due to no names. The cases we used were verifiable.

The problem is our legislature was not listening because the people had been brainwashed (by the media) in this mess. They did not want to lose their votes.

When you get into it, it really gets deep. Like the Feds passing the buck to the States. Letting the States decide on things such as this. Sounds good, but in some cases it is not. Must get back to the Constitution. The U.S. Constitution.

Thomas, read this which was on the Miller Co. Corrals Sex Offenders for Halloween thread.

No. 17

"I remember a case study on one down in South Texas. A woman was struggling with an officer while he was trying to arrest her. He accidentally touched her breast and she filed charges. The man lost his job and went to prison. No one is immune to this. And I mean no one."

So Thomas, you think that the woman was the victim here> No way, the cop officer is the victim. And you have sympathy for her and not him? See, you have been brainwashed by the media.
