If You Only Do One Thing Today:

Thursday, July 27, 2006

The California Organization of Police and Sheriffs, known as COPS, is looking for your support regarding Jessica's Law.

This proposed law stems from the February 23rd, 2005 kidnapping and subsequent brutal murder of nine year old Jessica Lunsford of Homosassa, Florida. A "registered sex offender" buried Jessica alive, following her rape, a mere 150 yards from her house.

Go here to sign the COPS petition.

Please, if you do nothing else today, do this.

Your support will be for the proposed Sexual Predator Punishment and Control Act of 2006: Jessica's Law.

This act would:

- Ensure that all child molesters who molest children under the age of 14 are put into a prison with a mandatory minimum sentence of 15 years or 25 years to life;

- Electronically monitor convicted sex offenders for life, if they are ever released from prison, through GPS tracking;

- Create a 2,000 foot "predator-free" zone around schools and parks to prevent sex offenders from living near where children learn and play.

Again: if you do nothing else today, click on that website and electronically sign and forward the petition.

You'll be glad you did.
