Abolish the statute of limitations on sex crimes in Washington State

When I was ten years old, my sixth grade teacher sexually abused me and my two best friends – on many occasions. It wasn’t until I was an adult that I learned he had abused many, many, other children, but was never held accountable for his crimes. By that time the statute of limitations had passed and none of us could press charges against him. Stand with survivors and demand that Washington State abolish the statute of limitations for felony sex crimes. Childhood victims of abuse often don’t report their abuse because their abusers threaten them, they don’t understand what is happening to them, or fear not being believed. For many, the strength to pursue justice comes only after counseling or therapy in their adulthood. How can we then bar victims from seeking justice once they are older, and better equipped to speak about past abuse? My abuser still lives in my hometown and has worked with children through his church. A background check will reveal that he is not a registered sex offender. He couldn't possibly be... all the victims we know about have been time-barred from seeking justice by the statute of limitations. It’s time to stop protecting abusers and pass House Bill 1155, which would eliminate the statute of limitations for felony sexual assault offenses. This bill is part of a nation-wide movement to change our justice system to better serve survivors. Already, New York, California and several other states have abolished their statutes of limitations – now it’s Washington’s turn. Call on Washington legislators to stand on the right side of history. Sign the petition today.

Save Kansas's Children From Registered Child Sex Offenders: They’re Closer Than You Think

According to The Kansas Bureau of Investigation, "the State of Kansas has no law that mandates where an offender can or cannot live, work, or go to school, nor does Kansas law allow for local jurisdictions to have such laws, however this may be a condition of their probation. The KBI does not monitor these restrictions.” The state of Kansas has decided there is no need to dictate whether a Registered Child Sexual Offender can or cannot live next to a school where our communities’ children walk to every day. Surely no one would allow that to happen anyways, right? Wrong. As I type this petition, I claim for a fact that currently a Registered Sex Offender with 4 counts of Possession of Child Pornography currently lives across the street from a middle school here in Manhattan, Kansas. No laws prevent this Registered Child Sex Offender or any other in the state of Kansas from staring out their window, plotting who knows what, against your children as they walk to school. If children cannot be safe on the lawn of their school, where are they safe? This fault in our state’s legislature must be changed. Other States’ Progress According to and Old Research Report document hosted by the Connecticut General Assembly, 22 states currently uphold some form of Sex Offender Residency Restriction. Below you will see some examples of laws in place mentioned by this document. In the state of Oklahoma, A registered sex offender cannot live within 2,000 feet of a school. Georgia does not allow a sex offender to live, work, or loiter within 1,000 feet of any school, childcare facility, school bus stop, or place where minors congregate. California dictates that a sexually violent predator or a serious paroled sex offender cannot live within one-fourth of a mile of a school, and high-risk paroled sex offenders cannot live within one-half mile of a school, daycare center, or place where children congregate.   Many people argue that not all sexual offenses are the same. There are people who have sexual offenses due to acts such as urinating in public or young adults who made the mistake of performing sexual acts in a vehicle in public. The diversity in severity a sexual offense can imply is great, which is why this petition calls for action against only persons with Child-Based Offenses to prevent any confusion.  According to an article posted by ABC News, a Texas judge went as far as ordering 14 offenders in 2001 to place 2ft signs in their yards to inform the public of their offender status with a phone number to call in case of suspicious activities. “They were given 2-foot-wide, 18-inch-tall placards that read, "DANGER: Registered Sex Offender Lives Here" to stick in their front yards. The signs also had a list of phone numbers to report suspicious behavior. The offenders were also given bumper stickers for their cars and portable signs with suction cups to put in car rear windows when they're riding in someone else's auto. Onlookers will be able to identify a registered sex offender — and warn their children — no matter where they are. Bañales has no sympathy for the offenders who believe their privacy is being trampled on.” Consequences Many people argue that creating residency restrictions for sexual offenders will cause issues in them being able to find homes and work and could result in a rise in homeless persons in a community. The potential that enacting residency restrictions only works in appealing to the public’s concerns without in fact preventing any future sexual offenses.  Others argue that sex offenders must live with the potential consequences of their illegal and immoral actions. With these potential consequences at hand, I plead for you to ask yourself this question. Are these consequences greater than the safety the community must help to uphold in our schools?  Please, protect the children of Kansas. Sign this petition to let Kansas State Legislature know that we will not stand for people with sexual offenses against a child to be allowed the freedom to live or work near community buildings where our own children flourish.   References:

Do La Estrella Adult DayCare, South Flores abuse their clients?

La Estrella Adult Daycare  aka,Ramhia Inc., has some serious issues. In the past this daycare allowed a registered sex offender to attend the daycare as a client. Then this Sex offender started to harrass and stalk other clients.  It was months that passed before the sex offender was removed. As months passed they have gone through a number of directors. One by one they were fired. All of them are bad. This daycare has serious  problems. Some of the problems are the following: Constant gas leaks on the kitchen stove. (I remember CPS Energy called and clients evacuated. (fire risk) Restrooms are filthy. (A clients pee on the floor and staff complains about cleaning it up.) See Here.  Favortism and Sexual harassment. (Clients specially harass other clients and staff covers it up.) Racism. On Martin Luther King Jr day in front of a African American client she refer to black people as (Coloured People) In addition the Director said I was taking advantage of being African American. See here Retaliation against Whistleblowers. (Everytime the state come to investgate clients are mistreated to oncover Whistleblowers.) Lying. (Daycare employee lie to state investigators to avoid stop offending behavior.) Discharge of Whistleblowers instead of fix problems. (Now they can abuse clients all they want.) Assault and cover ups. (A client punched another client 3 times in the face and staff with the help of paid clients covered it up. See here.) Also see here. (Update: Three weeks after the first assault, another woman was reported to been beaten resulted in a injury. Both clients was not seen at the daycare again. Second cover up!)   Lies. ( They lie about everything and get other employees and clients to lie also. Retaliation  against clients to for their own sadistic reasons.)         11. Retaliation for online petition. (Petitions is a First Admindment right. Daycare employee are known to  retaliate against online petitions. (Treats of court actions, Police calls etc.) 12. On July 28, 2017 a client from La Estrella's sister facility (San Fernando) came to the La Estrella Adult Daycare (South Flores) propositioned a female client that he didn't know to give her money and gifts in return for sexual favors. He promised that he will give her money from his government cheak and buy her anything she wants if she marry him and have his child. He told her how her appearance excited him and he wanted her and will pay to have her. When reported to employees the director was so slow to respond another client was sexually harassed and sexually exploited in front of numerous employee and clients and a live DJ. 13. On July 28, 2017 a client from La Estrella's sister facility (San Fernando) came to the La Estrella Adult Daycare (South Flores) and Sexual Harassment a female client offering money for sexual favors. This was reported to staff members who did not respond appropriately and immediately. As a result of this another client was sexually harassed and exploited or (allegedly) Sexually Assaulted while dancing at the daycare birthday party. The inappropriate dirty dance style was without the female client's consent. The client report the incident to employees. Then and only then the director responded to the sexual harassment and exploitation allegations. 14. . On July 28, 2017 a client from La Estrella's sister facility (San Fernando) came to the La Estrella Adult Daycare (South Flores) with the sole purpose of sexually exploiting female clients. He asked sexual favors from one client and danced in inappropriately with another client. If the director acted immediately on sexual harassment allegations the second client never would have been exploited. Both clients was neglected and their safety was not protected by letting a client/visitor to "Run Amok" trying to sexual gratify himself to The expense of female clients with intellectual, psychological and developmental disabilities. 14.  On July 28, 2017 a client from La Estrella's sister facility (San Fernando) came to the La Adult Daycare (South Flores) After asking one client for sexual favors and violating another client while dancing at La Estrella Adult Daycare's birthday party the director finally acted on the allegations a sexual exploitation and sexual harassment. It was a little bit too late because these clients was already exploited. After she finally responded the San Antonio Police Department had to be called because of a disturbance that occurred during a confrontation between the director and the client from San Fernando. This occurrence alarm and made clients feel unsafe. This daycare is horrible and I personly seen what that allow to happen. I was illegaly discharged for reporting safety issues. The female client was beaten up and they covered it up. See here It time to ensure the safety for all clients at the daycare.
