Once again, thanks to every registered citizen and their family members and friends who exercised their right to vote in the May 13 primary election. You showed the impact we can have by helping to send Jon Bruning and Pete Pirsch to the loser’s corner.
Bruning and Pirsch are the chief architects of the laws that place you and your family on the Nebraska State Patrol’s public hit-list website, and if you voted, you played a role in putting these two out of office. Good for you!
Now, please help spread the word for the general election and every election after: Felons in Nebraska are eligible to vote if they completed their sentences two or more years ago and have not reoffended. For your review, here is additional information.
We will be interviewing candidates for various offices and we will keep you informed of their views on whether you, your spouses, your children, etc., should be exposed to state-sanctioned vigilante violence.
And just why are you exposed to this violence?
It’s because of the huge and profitable sex-offender industry. Law enforcement agencies get millions of your tax dollars for fattening the registries. They are paid with your tax dollars for the home-invasion stunts that they pull.
Take a look at some of the metrics for the federal grant dollars (pork — your tax dollars) that are handed to law enforcement agencies (these are pulled directly from the document outlining expenditures of funds in the discredited Adam Walsh Act):
- “Percentage of records/data made electronically accessible for inclusion in SORNA jurisdiction sex offender registries . . . “
- “Percentage of registered sex offenders in compliance with jurisdiction registry requirements.”
- “Number of sex offenders newly registered . . . “
It is an evil, ingenious method: Whip up public fear of sex offenders (by ignoring research proving their low reoffense rates); use that fear to pass outrageous laws that do not enhance public safety but pack more and more families onto sex-offender registries; channel tax dollars into grants that support additional registry-packing activities . . .
It’s just a huge numbers game that has nothing to do with public safety, because the research shows that the Adam Walsh Act does not enhance public safety and probably erodes it.
It is a numbers game designed to fatten former sex-offender registries and siphon off your tax dollars.
