Fact, Public Registries Make RSO’s (their Roommates and Families) Into Targets of Vigilantes: Illinois Police Swarm Waukegan Home of Registered Sex Offender on Prank 911 Call

 
 

Good thing there weren’t any dogs at the residence because the SWAT Team probably would have shot them dead.

Everyone’s address that is posted on a Sex Offender Registry worries about vigilante vandalism, harassment, intimidation or attacks..... Now there is THIS possibility

If he was targeted because he is listed on the Registry then this should count as a Hate Crime!

A crime against property or a person that is motivated by prejudice or intolerance toward an individual’s targets a victim because of his or her perceived membership in a certain social group including national origin, ethnicity, color, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, or disability, is a Hate Crime.

Registered Sex Offenders are certainly a “group” and they should qualify under Hate Crimes.

No public registries aren't punitive they are simply "administrative".  We all know better! When will the lawmakers and the courts finally get it?

Police swarm Waukegan home of registered sex offender on prank 911 call, May 28, 2015

Police converged on a Waukegan apartment earlier this week after a chilling 911 call was made by a man claiming he had stabbed a woman, bound her and was holding her hostage with a shotgun, according to police. 

On Tuesday morning, police closed down the area around the 1700 block of Sunset Avenue before officers armed with AR-15 rifles forced their way inside, Waukegan Police Chief Wayne Walles said. 

It turned out the 911 call was a false report, summoning police to the apartment of a registered sex offender. 

"This is similar to what they call 'swatting,'" said Walles, who likened the call to a prank. "But we're not sure what this was and that's why we are investigating." 

Authorities called the SWAT team, but officers at the scene were sent into the apartment instead, equipped with their street rifles, Walles said.
