FEARLESS Topic -- Shining a Light: Is There Hope to Change a Criminal Justice System That Is Intent on Victimizing You?

Criminal defense attorney Marc Lund -- special guest at FEARLESS on Monday, September 21 -- will talk about what all of us must do to change a criminal justice system that is geared to harm us. His topic:

Shining a Light:  Is There Hope to Change a Criminal Justice System That Is Intent on Victimizing You?

FEARLESS will meet at 7 p.m. on Monday, September 21, at Saint Michael Lutheran Church, 13232 Blondo Street, Omaha, Nebraska. Park in the east lot and come in through the east door.

FEARLESS exists to counteract the damage inflicted on individuals and families by Nebraska's hatred-inspired sex-offender laws, which deprive people of homes, jobs and social support networks. Research shows that such laws increase the likelihood of reoffense. By providing a support community and making Nebraska a safer place despite the law, FEARLESS takes responsibility where politicians will not.

FEARLESS is open to Registered Citizens, their loved ones and their invited guests.

Want to Protect Children? Then Abolish Residency Restrictions

The high court accepted evidence that shows that residency restrictions DO NOT protect children and that children in fact ARE NOT AT RISK from Registered Citizens. Click here for a good summary story.

One Small Victory

New York Times and a Retired Judge Condemn Sex-Offender Laws

The New York Times says it is time to get rid of laws that attempt to limit where Registered Citizens live. The Times rationale is that the laws are pointless.

Here is an excerpt from the Times' just-published editorial on the topic:
It is understandable to want to do everything possible to protect children from being abused. But not all people who have been convicted of sex offenses pose a risk to children, if they pose any risk at all. Blanket residency-restriction laws disregard that reality — and the merits of an individualized approach to risk assessment — in favor of a comforting mirage of safety.
The fact of the matter is that this rationale applies not just to residency restrictions -- it applies to the sex-offender registry itself. The registry should be abolished so that we may begin to invest our time, energy, money and other resources into initiatives that actually protect children.
