Does anyone have info on this? I've heard it on tv and radio but haven't found a thing online. I heard (on npr) that the CA State Assembly was in such a rush to wrap up for vacation, they allowed Megan's Law to expire for the next year. I heard that Republicans wouldn't sign the bill for next year and Democrats didn't do anything to raise the issue.<br><br>
That means CA residents, after the new year, will not be allowed to view the CD Rom at Sheriff's stations for the sex offenders in California. I hear that the data will continue to be collected, but CA residents won't be able to see it anymore.

oh no! this is bad! I happen to live in a high concentration area of sex offenders in California. Most of them get sent to this area for relocation. Anyone know what we can do?!

Gosh I need someone to come clean my house and play with dd so I can take this thing up and fight it right. I have been so mad about this since last year when I went to the Sheriff's Station and was told I couldn't find out where they lived - only their face, offense and zip code!!! Protecting these people is OUTRAGEOUS.<br><br>
Listen women - I am totally dead serious. WE need to PROTEST. I started collecting emails on line last year for this - got about 50 of 'em - now let's do this thing. let's get a thousand of us and MARCH. - Or more.<br><br>
Who is with me - and who is Serious???<br><br>
This will not change unless we yell. A LOT. We can get people like the Perri Klass group and others who will unite with us.<br><br>
I am totally serious. Northern Cal and Southern Cal mamas, roll call!!

Well we need to get plenty of mamas on board.<br><br>
This means soliciting people, getting names, cities, emails, a phone network going.<br><br>
Once that is done we set up a rude website - and we organize protests which I think would be most effective in Sacramento.<br><br>
I have put many phone calls in to the people who "voted" to protect sex offenders in California and they all deny being able to take my call or do anything.<br><br>
If we can get 100 names I think that's the pointwhere I call the Polly Klass org in Petaluma and we start something.<br><br>
If I can get three other moms to help me solicit people I can instruct on how to do that and we can start.<br><br>
Two So cal moms and one N cal would be great.<br><br>
Anyone?

I'm in Oregon, and it used to be that all police stations had the sex offender book out in the lobby where anyone could look at it. A few years ago, people were claiming that someone I was associating with was "a convicted sex offender" so I went to the station. The book was gone. I asked someone if I could see it. Turns out, they aren't making it avaibale to the public anymore; you can give them a name and they will look it up for you, which of course is not the same. If I were able to look at the book, I might see people in there that I may have not thought of before.
