Special guest today is Judy Cornett. She is my new hero and is committed to spreading knowledge & education about sexual predators. She is the founder and executive director of not-for-profit organizations Safety Zone Advocacy and Predator Patrol.

On October 22, 1992, Judy's son, Jason was abducted, brutally raped and left for dead, but by the grace of God, her son’s life was spared. This was a major turning point for Judy and her family, a nightmare, which became reality. As she struggled to learn about the drastic behavior changes in her son, forced to give up her job, dealing with the judicial system and realizing she was on her own to fight an uphill battle. She realized the only way out of the darkness was to help others. She made communities aware of dangerous predators. She spent countless hours going door to door, city to city and state to state on sexual predator education, holding meetings, giving presentations and talking to anyone who would listen. She is responsible for over twenty arrests of Sex Offenders in the year 2007 and many internet sites getting shut down including the profiles of many Myspace.com users.

    Charges Dropped Against Man Who Beat Molester
    TAMPA, Florida (AP) -- An inmate who was mistakenly put in a jail cell with a man who had raped and choked him as a child will not be prosecuted for beating the molester.
    Jason Flores, 23, will still have to serve more than two years in prison for other crimes, including car theft and burglary. But prosecutors said Monday they have dropped a battery charge. Flores was arrested for a string of crimes in October and found himself at the Orient Road Jail, face to face with Kevin Kinder. Flores attacked him.

    WASP and the Ohio Rally
    On December 1st I arrived to a weak opposition. There was approximately 30 (maybe 40 if they were lucky) people who attended SoClears rally. This includes the speakers. I didn’t get to hear the speakers though. Even though I was right behind them I couldn’t hear much at all except when the Rev. yelled “That is MY son”. I guess SoClear didn’t want to turn the speakers up so everyone could hear their message, just the small gathering of felons, I mean supporters, that were there.

    I think every molestation victim should get this opportunity when they reach adulthood. Hell, yes!
    TAMPA - Convicted child molester Kevin Kinder, inadvertently placed in a jail holding area with a man he abused more than a decade ago, was beaten unconscious Thursday when the man recognized him and exacted revenge.
