Coalition for Registered citizen Restoration


Citizens Against Government Entrapment

WAR Moratorium. "Why do we call them what we don't want them to be?" The term S/O needs to go!

What does a WAR Moratorium look like? Let me say it is challenging! Why? Because the 'other descriptive words' began their written and spoken journey in 1994 and have continued to be the catalyst for degradation harm and has annihilated the health and hope of our families. So, now we can stay where we are or we can light that fire of change and pass it on to others. How do we begin?

Reframe our message using people-first language:

A person required to register

A citizen required to register

A child required to register

A teen required to register

A person with a historical inappropriate offense

A person with a historical sexual offense

Just as other human beings have the right to not be defined by their worst mistake so do we. So we can keep on ping-ponging with lawsuits or educate the masses. As the saying goes “Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.” -President Barack Obama

 We the Registrant Families of Florida have set about educating the public and media with statistical data from researchers in the field that the registry of citizens is a useless tool and causes damage to families of registrants and protects no one.  

The Registry of Citizens Does Not Protect The Children, It Harms Them!

The U.S. Department of Justice, July 2015, report shows that registered citizen laws are ineffective and create more harm than producing any genuine good..

..And here's just one, out of thousands of cases, where it has created more harm: Registrant Status Poses a Housing Challenge For ill Army Veteran.

"Vindicated, Tekoh sued Vega, Vega’s supervisor, the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department, and the County of Los Angeles for damages under Section 1983, claiming that Vega’s failure to issue Miranda warnings violated Tekoh’s Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination. In the federal district court, Tekoh sought but was denied a jury instruction that if the jury found by a preponderance of the evidence that Vega obtained Tekoh’s confession in violation of Miranda, then the jury should find Vega liable under Section 1983."

The federal government says he  must register with the state as a sex offender. But California says he can't.

United States Sentencing Commission

The Sunshine State thrives on tourism. But prior to making plans and visiting Florida it is strongly recommended that registered citizens (which are legally allowed computer usage/ internet access), or family members of, research FDLE laws and the county/city registrant laws in which they intend to visit. Also, a registered citizens intention of visiting certain Florida tourist locations may be denied entry due to the label worn. Research is recommended.

*NOTE: After a registered citizen, that's visiting Florida, has contacted and registered in the county they are residing in for the family vacation the registered citizens photo and full page dossier will remain on the FDLE site!..for life!

Also..Removal from another state's registration of citizens requirement does not guarantee removal from the requirement to register in Florida!

International Travel For Registered Citizens

"I am adding Armenia as a good destination. A recent registered Citizen was turned away from Haiti. Another registered citizen traveled to Martinique without a problem"

Paul Rigney

Executive Director, RTAG Inc


Please share your Travel Experience with TAG at:

Subject: Update to Travel matrix - good news finally; Tahiti confirmed
good, Barbabos, Guatemala good
From: <>
Date: Sun, July 07, 2019 2:47 pm
To: "latin Travel" <>

We finally received a report from Tahiti.   The registered citizen was not even stopped, just traveled straight through

immigration.   I personally traveled to Barbados.  I was politely interrogated.  I realized I would be allowed to

stay when the local police then interrogated me.  Also have 2 recent trips to Guatemala without interrogation

or issues.

It is highly recommended that registered citizens travel with a single paged document explaining the specifics of their

situation and specifics of travel plans that can simply be handed to immigration.

Also received negative reports on the readability and accuracy of the matrix.

Hopefully those have been fixed.

Why We Must Fight

Florida has some of the toughest registrant laws in the nation. If you are convicted of a sex crime in Florida, you may be forced to deal with very stringent registration laws for the rest of your life. This is in addition to any prison time given. The lasting repercussions of such a conviction can dramatically impact the quality of your life and the lives of those people close to you.

Our registrant families are impacted by each and every law and restriction applied to their loved one by Florida legislators and city officials. For instance, the family is subjected to harassment and harm due to all vehicles at the residence for five or more consecutive day's being “registered” with authorities. If a “registered” vehicle plate is scanned by law enforcement and the driver and occupants are at a location off-limits to a registrant and there is a rush of police to the location how does that help with anything except embarrassment for the family?  Researchers have clearly indicated three things are needed for successful re-integration; a job, place to live and a POSITIVE SUPPORT SYSTEM.

The collateral damage to our families is substantial and the reason we are making our voices heard.  The Dobbs Wire updated their registry map Dec 2018. There are now over 912,000 men, women and children registrants nationwide...73,444 are in the state of Florida. This encompasses millions of family members across the nation with over a million residing in Florida

Society has been groomed to believe the registry will keep them safe by merely locating a dot on the map and that along with strict residency restrictions is all that is needed. That is simply a “false sense of security.” We, the registered families of Florida, advocate for Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Training Programs WITH state funding to be taught where 95% of the sexual offenses occur; within the family, friends and those having access to the children like schools, churches, scouts and instructional organizations. We advocate for prevention and intervention to keep a child from being harmed instead of conviction and incarceration after a child has been harmed.

We are the moms, wives, sisters, grandmothers, girlfriends, aunts, daughters and other family members who believe that once a person has been adjudicated, paid their debt to society and are trying to live a law-abiding life they should be allowed to do so with their family in peace without harassment or vigilante "justice."

“The laws you intended to protect me have made me and my family homeless”
