Third-Monday FEARLESS is well attended

Twenty-five people attended FEARLESS-Omaha on Monday, July 19, at St. Michael Lutheran Church.

It was the first time since the pandemic shutdown in the spring of 2020 that the nation’s first-ever FEARLESS group met in-person. (The second Saturday group, which meets at Holy Family Church in downtown Omaha, has been meeting in person for two months. Attendance at the second Saturday group is significantly smaller than the third Monday group).

There was no guest speaker for the July 19 meeting. Participants used the meeting for re-introductions and to get caught up after the year of the pandemic.

Topics discussed included the extra-legal home-invasive compliance checks carried out by law enforcement, and the sentence that was given to the man who planned and carried out the murder of Mattieo Condoluci.

On the subject of compliance checks, the group was reminded to download and use the Nebraskans Unafraid Compliance Check Guide.

What are your rights when law enforcement comes to your door?

  • If you are not under supervision and law enforcement does not have a warrant, you are not required to answer a knock on your door.
  • Download and use the Compliance Check Guide.
  • You do not surrender your rights because you are forced to register.

It’s a good idea for anyone to know their constitutional rights when it comes to dealing with law enforcement.

It’s crucial for people who are forced to register to know their rights. That’s why Nebraskans Unafraid developed the Compliance Check Guide, which is free for you to download, share and keep handy around your home.

Here is an excerpt from the Guide:

  • Compliance checks are different from a visit from your probation or parole officer. If you are still under supervision by parole or probation, check your judgment order to see if you are required to answer the door to law enforcement other than your PO. You are almost certainly required to open the door to your probation or parole officer, and it may be possible that you are required to open the door to other law enforcement officers. Check your judgment order.
  • If you are no longer under supervision (off paper), you are not required to answer the door to police unless they have a warrant. You can ignore the knock altogether or you can talk to them through the door. “Do you have a warrant?”
  • If you decide to open the door, you can tell the officers, “You do not have permission to enter my home and I do not consent to any searches.” This can protect you from officers noticing something they can use as a pretext for a search.

Remember that the registry laws are a tangled mess and even law enforcement officers cannot keep them straight. You are in charge of who comes onto your property and into your home. You do not surrender your rights because you are forced to register.

What if murder victim had been able to afford a security camera?

  • Condolucci was killed with aid and assistance from the Nebraska registry.
  • Safe and Just Nebraska Inc. exists to help stop such killings and other violence.

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.
