California: Registered Sex Offenders to March on Carson City Hall to Fight Restrictions

 
It’s great to see that RSO’s and their family members in California are willing to step out of the shadows to fight against myth-based, hate driven and prejudicial laws that are continually passed against them.

Registered sex offenders to march on Carson City Hall to fight restrictions, March 5, 2015
By Sandy Mazza

A group of convicted sex offenders will march to Carson City Hall on Saturday to demand equal rights to visit fast-food restaurants, parks, libraries and other public areas from which they are now banned. 

The protest is timed to coincide with the date of Martin Luther King Jr.’s voting-rights march to Selma, Ala., 50 years ago to emphasize that the issue is about a denial of constitutionally protected human rights. Carson imposes the state’s harshest restrictions against registered sex offenders. 

“We really want to call it to the attention of the city of Carson that they indeed are violating civil rights of more than 100,000 people and their families,” attorney Janice Bellucci said. “We have multiple court decisions that clearly state that the Carson ordinance violates the state and federal constitutions.” 

Roughly 100,000 registered sex offenders live in California, and about 8,000 of them are on parole and subject to complicated residency restrictions.
