T.J's Sexual Offender sign now


This petition is created to change the local, state and federal laws when it comes to sexual offenders. This petition asks that religious organizations and/or groups be held to the same level of scrutiny for the actions of those individuals in leadership, youth ministries as well as church members in order to prevent future acts of criminal sexual conduct by sexual predators. We must do something as the cause for concern is reaching into every home and every family within the religious community. We ask first the Governor of the State of Michigan to enact a law that would provide tougher screening process and penalties for those who commit heinous crimes on our children and innocent young adults.

The church administration and the department of corrections should require all offenders to be monitored in several or all ways.

A. Screening Process Used to ensure the safety of our children by conducting a background investigation for those who seek to volunteer and/or serve in leadership positions within the church in addition to being part of social and corporate events conducted by the religious institution.

B. Communication Network A communication network for those convicted or accused of a sexual crime within the religious institution.

1) Probation Department
2) Church Ministry
a. Pastor
b. Assistant Pastor
c. Youth Minister
d. Administrative Office
e. Event Coordinator

3) Link to sexual offender website

This network will be used to prevent individuals charged with criminal sexual conduct from speaking, performing and/or working around minor children under the age of 16, especially out of the state appearances.

Since religious organizations generally prefer not to discuss issues concerning the behavior of influential members of their institution they should have the tools in place to participate and play a role in the rehabilitation process.

C. Global Tracking System to pin point the location of the offender for the term of probation. Providing this would cause the offender to likely be more scared to commit another crime do to the tracking provided.

D. Supervision We must supervise the offender/criminal on a weekly or even monthly basis. Providing this would startle the criminal and weaken the desire to commit a crime, reminding him the law is still watching closely through his affiliation with a religious organization and church ministry. This will be used to assist the probation department as a support tool to work together as the eyes of protection for our children.

E. Tougher Laws Tougher laws on the first charge and second should carry a rather large lengthy sentence that would be almost like our lengthy gun law. These predators are more dangerous than a gun and are amongst all of us. An offender who commits a second offense should be sentenced at least 20 years with no parole.

F. Removal from Leadership position This will leave the victim feeling that religious organizations are committed to protecting its children.

G. Community Notification T.J.s law will allow the church to establish criteria for disclosure, but compels them to make private and personal information on registered sex offenders available to the public and church congregation. Used to offer church members information they can use to protect children from victimization.

A tougher law is the only thing next to more advanced monitoring, and to the current database of offenders. We must provide large sentences to deter them from committing a first or even second offense.

I ask that you sign this petition; you are also welcome to print it out and send it to your governor. Please refer your friends and family to also visit this petition and help protect our largest pride and joy, our kids.
