This is very important if you are registered in Florida but no longer living there! Remember that Florida is a LIFETIME and they don’t remove those who move out so they can keep the number of sex offenders artificially high to keep that good ole FEAR factor going with the poor folks who actually trust the government and don’t realize they are being lied to about the numbers and of course about EVERYTHING ELSE about the registry! I am reposting this from the Florida Action Committee’s website. Admin
Are you on the Florida Sex Offenders Registry but no longer in Florida?
by Florida Action Committee
If you are listed on the Florida Sex Offender Registry but no longer living in Florida, we are organizing a lawsuit to challenge your continued placement on the public registry.
The intent of the public notification component of the Sex Offender Registry is to notify the public of “potentially dangerous” people in their communities. People who are no longer in the state do not present a danger to people in the community and therefore serve no purpose on the public registry.
To be clear: Sex offender registries do not work…are designed to stereotype certain American citizens into a faceless group so they are easier to hate. ALL registries should be stopped but until that time (which is coming) at least those who are no longer in the state should be removed…if for no other reason than to pretend that the “official” reason for the registry (help parents by providing a map of sex offenders living in their local area) can be maintained!
Florida’s registry is diluted with people who moved to another state, were deported, even people who are dead remain on the public registry! There are people who never lived in Florida but visited here, who are on the list!
If you fall into this category and would like to participate in a lawsuit to remove your name from the Florida Sex Offender Registry, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
