  1. Love the Cartman!! You WILL RESPECT MY AUTHORITAH!!!!” I’ve seen that on YouTube and agree that too many are blindly brain-washed cop boot lickers!!

  2. In Tennessee these are the fees:

    $15/month Community Supervision Fee
    $50/month G.P.S. ankle monitor fee
    $150/year sex offender registry fee

  3. I am a certified I.T. technician and I cannot buy a job in the I.T. industry!! They don’t want sex offenders and it doesn’t matter how under-staffed they are because these tech companies know they’d catch Holy Hell if they ever got “outted” for hiring registrants. I could just see the headline “Tech Company Hires Known Sexual Predators and Gives Them Access to YOUR information.”

    I’ve been shot down by TekSystems and Robert Half categorically. I.T. jobs are off-limits to registrants.

    • I was in IT as well. Now I work in a warehouse as a general laborer, thanks to them not doing background checks. I applied/interviewed at about a dozen temp agencies over a large geographic area, with only one being willing to work with me (once they found out I’m on the Registry). Your best bet may be to be a “consultant” working for a company (that you and/or others create). Create the company as a full business, NOT a dba (doing business as). Avoid any business that demand background checks of the “consultants”. Your state/county or probation officer may nix that though, so take my idea with a grain of salt.

      Another possibility is to do remote support and (very slowly) build your reputation and client base.

      As for me, I’ve pretty much given up on IT at this point. My only hope is to get hired on by a business (temp to hire) and eventually move into an IT position.

  4. There ARE differences in this country between who would help fix this insanity and who will not do it. This does not get talked about enough and it is important. Find me some evidence that this administration cares about this issue. I’d love to see it.

    We examine state differences in wrongful conviction laws.

    States with more Innocence Network organizations have more of these laws.

    Conservative political ideology is associated with a lower likelihood of some laws.

    The number of discovered wrongful criminal convictions (and resulting exonerations) has increased over the past decade. These cases erode public confidence in the criminal justice system and trust in the rule of law. Many states have adopted laws that aim to reduce system errors but no study has examined why some states appear more willing to provide due process protections against wrongful convictions than others. Findings from regression estimates suggest that states with a Republican controlled legislature or more Republican voters are less likely to pass these laws while the presence of advocacy organizations that are part of the ‘innocence movement’ make legislative change more likely. We thus identify important differences in the political and social context between U.S. states that influence the adoption of criminal justice policies.
