Repost from Safe and Just Nebraska Inc.

Mattieo Condolucci was murdered in his home in May 2020 with the aid and assistance of the State of Nebraska.

The killer used the Nebraska State Patrol’s public registry to target Mr. Condolucci, who by all accounts was trying to rebuild his life, find redemption for his wrongdoing, and take care of his family. Omaha news coverage of the murder is notable for its tacit justification of the killing and its weird fetish for the swingset in Condolucci’s yard.

Mr. Condolucci put the swingset there for his grandson. The guy was just trying to be a good granddad. The child would still have a grandfather were it not for the Nebraska State Patrol’s registry.

What if Mr. Condolucci had been able to afford a video home monitoring system, or other legal personal protection equipment? That is one of the questions that prompted the founding of Safe and Just Nebraska Inc. With the aid of your gifts, we help people like Mattieo Condolucci protect themselves from killers and from state law that facilitates the violence.

It’s possible that Mr. Condolucci’s killer would have avoided invading a home had a security camera been in place and visible. It’s possible that Condolucci could have protected himself with other personal safety equipment.

There are other good granddads out there who are forced by the state to register and put their lives and the lives of their loved ones, including children, at risk. Others not forced to register, but who simply have a contact with the criminal justice system in their past, are similarly at risk from crazed and vengeful people.

Safe and Just Nebraska uses gift dollars to make small grants to people whose well-being and lives are at risk in a state where the law facilitates violence against them. Among other things, the grants help people pay for security cameras at their homes. Please consider supporting this program with your gift.

Safe and Just Nebraska provides microgrants to people to buy home safety equipment — cameras, monitoring services, and legal personal protection items. Many individuals who have a previous experience with the criminal justice system are exposed to hatred and vigilante violence. Their homes are invaded, their property damaged and their loved ones are threatened with violence.
