Pedophiles Suck...

I hope this is something that we can ALL agree on. It has been equally heartbreaking and infuriating watching news story after news story this spring and summer about kids that have been killed by REPEAT offenders. WHY...WHY...WHY? I DON'T GET IT!

Have you read some of the testimony of the man that took Jesssica Lundsford from her bed (Couey)? He buried her alive! And had the audacity to say she must have suffered --gee, ya think?! Lately more of my ire has been directed at the judges and defense attorneys...

Anyway, Bill O'Reilly has really been on the forefront of holding people accountable for this and has recently done a study of states that have very lax laws for violent sex offenders. (I know some of you don't like Bill --but if I discriminated against ego-maniacs I wouldn't have any BLOG friends!)

Here are the States that are currently seemingly apathetic about sex offenders:

AL - Gov. Bob Riley (Phone:334-242-7100 Fax:334-353-0004)
AK - Gov. Frank Murkowsli (email him)
CT - Gov. Jodi Rell (Toll Free: 800-406-1527)
HI (worst)-Gov. Linda Lingle
LA - Gov. Kathleen Blanco (Phone: (866) 366-1121 Fax:(225) 342-7099
TX - Gov. Rick Perry ((800) 252-9600)
MA - Gov. Mitt Romney (Phone: (617) 725-4005 FAX: (617) 727-9725)
PA - Gov. Ed Rendell ((717) 787-2500)
MI - Gov. Jennifer Ganholm (Phone: (517) 373-3400 Fax:(517) 335-6863)
MO - Gov. Matt Blunt ((573) 751-3222)
NY - Gov. George Pataki (518-474-8390)
OR - Gov. Ted Kulongoski (Phone: 503.378.4582 Fax: 503.378.6827)
WY - Gov. Dave Freudenthal (email him)

The goal is to get every governor to pass an identical/similar law to Jessica's Law that Jeb Bush passed in Florida. This is really something that EVERYONE should be proactive about. It took a lot of time to compile this list --so USE IT! We can fight about all the other crap, but let's band together to protect our kids from these animals…
