14th Amendment Equal Protection and Due Process
What is the state's reasoning for the need for sex offenders to register
and the community be notified of their existence in the community?
Primarily the state has said that sex offenders have a high possibility
of re-offending, meaning that they have low impulse control or in simple
terms that they are mentally ill and cannot control themselves and are
thereby a danger to the community. The high re-offense rate that is
cited as the rationale for the laws has been proven time and again to
not exist except in the minds of the self-righteous advocates who do not
see the victims that they are creating, and the professional
organization and lobbyists who are only in it for the money. These
looters of society fail to recognize that their actions are taking away
the constitutional rights of all Americans, in order to satisfy their
own personal hate and greed.
All Government Officials can be Sued for Actions Outside their Authority
We have the court saying that restrictions unrelated to the crime are
unconstitutional, and if that is so for the court then it would also
follow through that it is unconstitutional for the parole and probation
department to impose them. It would also follow through that it is
unconstitutional to pass laws imposing them. For example residency
restrictions against a person who is involved in child pornography, or
for that matter, a person involved in incest. Residency restrictions
would only seem to apply to people who were strangers to the victim.
Destroyed families, Destroyed lives, All because of a lie
Things to do
Throughout the world there are myths based on misinformation, wishful
thinking or outright lies. When lies have been exposed and the myths put
to rest some people continue to believe the myths even after the truth
has been exposed. Most of us would consider the people who continue to
believe the myth as ignorant, foolish, or having ulterior motives. If
they continue to choose to believe in the mythos because of their fear,
hatred, bigotry, or loss of financial gain or a desire for unjustified
revenge, and as a result of that individual lives continue to be
destroyed as well as families torn apart and children subjected to a
harassment, threats and violence, then those people's actions should be
considered criminal. It is time to call out the people that ignore facts
or try to Perpetuate the fantasy myth based on false information in
order to further their own personal or financial interests simply
because in reality they are bullies, vigilantes, sociopaths, and
outright liars, this group includes everyone from the misinformed
citizen to many so-called professionals, as well as various victims
advocates, and yellow journalistic news media. Not to mention all the
way up through our elected officials who are no longer interested in
they're oath to protect constitutional values as much as they are in
winning public approval. Robert George Tronge
Your Fortune Told.
Human beings have the habit of wanting somebody to be omniscient In
powers to predict the future. When you think of a fortuneteller you
think of a Gypsy type woman in a dark room with a turbine on her head
sitting in front of a crystal ball. We know in our hearts that these
people are charlatans, whether they use a crystal ball, tarot cards,
numerology, Or our astrological signs.--------------
Government Sponsored Terrorism or Public safety?
This fact is basic psychology.
1. You see something new
2. You learn to trust it and accept it.
3. You speak about it, passing on the information you were given to
4, You act upon the information given.
In this case the public registry:
1. Public was told there was a need for the registry.
2. They accepted the false statistics perpetuated by political leaders,
law enforcement, the media and vigilante groups.
3. The public began to spread the false information.
4. The public acted upon the false information by harassing,
threatening, beating and on the extreme end, killing those in this newly
History Repeats itself; The Shameful Tactics of Pseudo-Science and
We all know about segregation in our recent history. We know how state
governments across the nation passed laws, rules and regulations
treating people differently, these laws not only included blacks, but
Asians, Latinos and other ethnic groups as well, not only in the
community, but before the court systems. Note even our United States
Supreme Court ratified the use of segregation in the 1896 case of Plessy
v. Ferguson, 163 U.S. 537 where the Supreme Court sustained the
constitutionality of "Separate but equal”. It took us fifty years to
overturn the Jim Crow laws, much to our shame.

Mandated Reporting. A Failed Policy in Reducing Sexual Offending
It is a fact that 93% of all sexual abuse occurs within the home, and
are committed by family members, close family friends, or someone known
to the victim. This fact comes from the United States Department of
Justice. Why do we then, and how can we as a society, go along with this
"choice” to ignore the 93% of all sexual abuse? Simply put, because we
are told to. Robert George Tronge
of Scientific Information
This article is a little different from my prior ones, it may seem to go
far afield but bear with me, I'm taking the long way around to make a
Using scientific studies and scientific information appears in most
cases a proper way to approach things, but in actuality people should
take the time to look into the information provided and not taken at
Too many times people have taken things out of context or only given
part of the information to satisfy their desire to make their point. So
now here's the point - information that is misused about a subject is,
in fact, misinformation or disinformation.
You can give people totally accurate information about a subject that
can lead them to make poor decisions if the presentation of the facts is
in some way biased by the presenter. robert tronge
News Media needs to shift its focus to Really Dangerous People
It seems like Sex cases always go viral. But an extremely high number of
children die even more horrible deaths from other non-sex related
criminal acts and you never even see a blip on the radar screen, and
then something like what happened to Sierra Newbold happens and the
radar screens light up like the 4th of July.
A friend of mine, let's call him John for his own safety, related a
story to me. He said that he had a vivid memory of an example of just
this set of circumstances that happened to him and his family back in
2004, it was about six months before he was charged with his offense, he
and his family were living in a rural area at the time.

The current procedures under the public notification provisions of the
law are extremely broad and contain absolutely no safeguards to prevent
erroneous deprivations of a registrant's liberty interests. Without any
preliminary determination of whether and to what extent an offender
represents a danger to society, the level of danger to the public posed
by any particular sex offender, if any, remains unknown. Surely, not all
offenders present a significant danger to the public. Yet, the law
currently deprives all offenders - including those who present no danger
to the community and are not likely to recidivate - of these interests
automatically, for life. Therefore, persons convicted of crimes listed
under the law who do not pose a significant danger to the community are
at substantial risk of being erroneously deprived of their liberty
Sex Offender Treatment; A Legal Extortion Business.
In a editorial in the Indiana news Sentinel, the troubling ideology
behind treatment programs is exposed and since most treatment programs
that are based on behavior modification that have been proven to be
damaging to the participants, this article goes a long ways in showing
that the use of treatment programs within the prison system are in
violation of the federal constitution banning cruel and unusual
punishment. Treatment programs are based on the fact that a person has a
mental illness or deficiency that requires them to receive psychological
treatment, but a person has a constitutional right to not want to be
involved in any treatment program, more so the state cannot say simply
because you have been convicted of a crime that you are mentally ill and
thereby use coercion to force a person into treatment.
As a person who was educated in science (physics, mathematics and
chemistry) I not only like to base my answers on hard facts, but I also
like to ask my questions in such a way that they can be answered with
hard facts. So I'm going to ask a question, but before you answer, I
want you to think about the question.
Fact: The basic reason that we have a registry and community
notification is because the community and legislators believe that there
is a high re-offense rate among people who have a conviction for a sex
So here's my question, "What is the re-offense rate for new sex crimes
by people who are already on the registry?”
- Where is the justice
Any of you who have read my articles that have been posted here on SOSEN
know that I have argued for years that the justification for the
registry and all the restrictions that have been placed on registered
citizens have been based on the lies of high re-offense rates. You also
know that I want to rein back government control that is exerted through
the executive branch, namely parole and probation. Their theories on how
to treat people with sex crimes while on parole and probation are based
on that same mythology's and lies, they constantly overstep their legal
boundaries causing physical, mental, and emotional hardships on the
people that they're supposed to be helping to reintegrate into society.

Where is Our Personal Freedom Going.
I think it is time to take a look at where our political leaders are
leading us. America has always been based on the concept that all men
are free and there should be no barriers put up barring a person's
liberty or freedoms regardless of any defining characteristics that a
person has. The most obvious examples are race, color, creed, and
religion but there are also others.
There are many historical examples of what has happened when caste
systems are put into place but the most obvious was with Nazi Germany
where millions of people were sorted out of the population and any group
that was disliked had added restrictions and requirements placed on the
them. This eventually lead to the murders, not only of Jews, but Romani
(more commonly known in English by the exonym "Gypsies”), Sinti's,
Soviet prisoners of war, Polish and Soviet civilians, people with
disabilities, Jehovah's Witnesses and other political and religious
opponents. These murders occurred regardless of whether the
disenfranchised people were of German or non-German ethnic origin. The
total number of civilians murdered by the Nazis is nearly 11 million
with around 5.7 million Jews and a roughly equal number of non-Jews.
Would this New Law Stand a Constitutional Challenge.
Before we begin this exercise let's take a look at an existing law to
see how the legislature justifies the existence of that law.
29-4002 Legislative findings state of Nebraska
The Legislature finds that sex offenders present a high risk to commit
repeat offenses. The Legislature further finds that efforts of law
enforcement agencies to protect their communities, conduct
investigations, and quickly apprehend sex offenders are impaired by the
lack of available information about individuals who have pleaded guilty
to or have been found guilty of sex offenses and who live, work, or
attend school in their jurisdiction. The Legislature further finds that
state policy should assist efforts of local law enforcement agencies to
protect their communities by requiring sex offenders to register with
local law enforcement agencies as provided by the Sex Offender
