The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil,
but because of those who look on and do nothing.

One Strike Law

The following is a letter from the One Strike Law Blog, out of Washington. Next week, they will be interviewed by WIMA Radio in my own city of Lima, Ohio. Although I certainly had nothing to do with it, I'm still overwhelmingly happy that they will be able to spread their message here.

Dylan's Law has been filed & Your Help is Necessary!
Dear One Strike Supporters,

Citizens for a One Strike Law (CFAOSL) has filed Dylan's Law in honor of Dylan Groene who was sexually brutalized and violently murdered by Joseph Duncan III. Dylan's Law is a mandatory life sentence without the possibility of parole for violent and predatory sexual crimes such as kidnapping, to the vicious rapes and molestations of our young and defenseless children. People like Joseph Duncan can not ever be let out of prison! Duncan served 17 years of a 20 year sentence and was let out of a Washington state prison were he allegedly left a trial of missing and murdered children from Oak Harbor, Washington to California to North Dakota. He ended his alleged crime spree where he let loose, stalked and murdered Dylan's mother, her boyfriend, Dylan's 13 year old brother, and finally kidnapped Shasta and Dylan where he acted out on them in the most evil of ways finally ending his evil by viciously murdering an innocent eight year old child! When will we make this stop? This proposed law makes protecting Washington's children and communities a priority, addresses the constitutional issues of sex predators' rights and saves taxpayers money!
The staff at CFAOSL is seeking your help in promoting this vital cause in this upcoming initiative session. We need to get the word out to our neighbors, churches and civic groups that there is a real solution to this public safety issue. The public is very upset about the flood of violent sex offenders being released into our communities, but most people do not know that there is a real solution available right now, which is less costly to taxpayers than our current "solutions."We believe every state has an out-of-control problem with violent sexual crimes and believe that if Washington becomes the first state to pass a one strike law other states will follow.
For information see our website at or call 877.745.9592 or email at
We would appreciate your support. Help end the ridiculous and dangerous recycling of sexual terrorists in Washington state. Let's not say we're doing it for the children, let's really do it for the children!
