Fellow activists,

    Thanksgiving officially kicks off the “holiday shopping season,” and while many of you will start shopping for your families, I’ll
    begin my shopping for a few total strangers at the Miami homeless camp. I am heading to the camp for Christmas, and I want to
    spread a little holiday cheer to those at the camp who don’t have a family to spend Christmas with at the camp. Thus, I’m
    reminding everyone to donate to OnceFallen.com to help send some much-needed supplies to the homeless camp. My focus is on
    hygiene products, socks and underwear, as suggested by my contact at the camp. Socks, underwear and laundry detergent are
    expensive items that don’t get donated often to programs that assist the poor.

    If you want to help me spread a little holiday cheer, you can send a monetary donation to Derek Logue, 8258 Monon Ave., Apt. 3,
    Cincinnati, OH 45216 or through Paypal to iamthefallen1@yahoo.com (Please don’t write checks/M.O.s to “Once Fallen,” because
    I can’t cash them that way.) Supplies can be shipped to this address as well if you prefer to send socks, underwear and hygiene
    products rather than money. If you have further questions, call me at 513-238-2873 or email me at iamthefallen1@yahoo.com.

    --Derek W. Logue of OnceFallen.com

    Founded in December 2007, Once Fallen has been the leading reference & resource site for Registered Citizens (i.e., those convicted of registrable sex
    offenses) and provide useful information to those seeking to reform or abolish the myriad of excessive sex offender laws, from the public registry to
    residency restrictions and beyond. Once Fallen answers hundreds of phone calls and letters, visits with legislators, assists registrants in connecting to
    available resources and support networks, and provides analysis research on sex offender laws free of charge.

    This independent resource is not funded by any other organizations or grants so donations are always needed. In addition to this site, I also engage in
    demonstrations and other projects to assist registrants in need. None of this is possible without your support. I don't like to fundraise but inmate letters,
    website fees, travel expenses, equipment, and supplies aren't free. Even this website costs money for upkeep. Thus, your donations are greatly needed.

    My PayPal address is iamthefallen1@yahoo.com, or if you prefer sending a check/ money order [made out to Derek Logue, NOT to Once Fallen,
    because I don't have a business account], see my CONTACT ME page for my address. I thank all who support this important reference site. You can
    also support Once Fallen by buying an item from the Amazon.com Wish List. Also, I am a collector of all old Atari products from the 2600 to the
    Jaguar. If you have some old Atari stuff, contact me.

    The purpose of Once is providing an honest education on the truth about sex offender laws and issues, and offering some support services and guidance
    to those seeking to reform America's sex offender laws. Once Fallen is not a legal referral service, nor can we provide legal advice on sex crime
    defense or appealing convictions, and any advice given is a solitary opinion based upon the personal experiences and conclusions made by the owner of
    this site. The purpose of Once Fallen is not seek any influence over "age of consent" laws or, as some erroneously put it, "normalize pedophilia" or
    sexual abuse (and thus is not affiliated in any way with alleged "pro-pedophile" groups like NAMBLA), nor is Once Fallen even part of that debate.
    Instead, Once Fallen provides the best available information on the case against post-conviction sex offender "remedies" such as public shaming lists,
    residency restrictions. Once Fallen promotes an "evidence-based approach" to combating recidivism through a combination of fact-based public
    education programs that do not rely on fear and myths about sex offenders, coupled with programs that stress healthy rehabilitation techniques and
    reintegration programs balancing public safety with the individual needs to those who are labeled "sex offenders."

    ARM #OpFairGame, August 25, 2017 to Sept. 4, 2017

    The Anti-Registry Movement is planning to host a registry truth booth at the Oregon State Fair in Salem to gather signatures in support of a ballot
    initiative to remove the registry from public view and as a general education platform. Deadline for signing up for this event is in late March/ early April.
    In order for ARM to be able to host this event, we need to raise the booth fee of $1200 (which covers insurance and a 10' x 10' foot booth) plug
    material costs and enough volunteers to help man the booth for the 11 day event. This is a golden opportunity to educate and gather public support in a
    state that already publicly lists only a small percentage of the registry online.

    If you wish to donate or you want to help man the booth, call me at 513-238-2873 or email iamthefallen1@yahoo.com

    Take the ACSOL International Travel Survey

    If you have engaged in International Travel since February 8, 2016 (or have attempted to travel outside the US and were turned away by the foreign
    nation) please fill out the survey by ACSOL, in cooperation with RTAG. CLICK HERE to take the survey.
    Registrant entrepreneurs have organized to create and sell holiday cards which are available in a variety of sizes.  Each of the 12 cards has a different
    sports theme ranging from golf to NASCAR racing.  The cards can be purchased online at www.crazysantacards.com.  The proceeds of all sales will
    benefit registrants and their families. “The holiday cards are beautifully illustrated and contain witty messages,” stated ACSOL president Janice Bellucci.  
    “I will support registrants and their families by purchasing the holiday cards they have created.” (My note: Be sure to select "Ca-Rsol" in the option to
    support one of a number of charities. Cost of a variety pack after shipping "library mail" is $15.47, not a bad price IMO. Made in the USA.)

LAST UPDATE: December 10th, 2016 -- Visitor Counter 5/31/2016: 716,794

In 2012, a career criminal named Patrick Drum
killed two people listed on the registry and was
called a "hero" by many.

"Beyond the Label" seeks to seek the untold story
behind these gruesome murders, showing the
victims of this case as more than just a label.

widow of Gary Blanton, Leslie. This interview
was intended to be part of a documentary but now
I'm turning it into a book.
ARM joins Int'l Megan's Law Protest in
Oakland CA 7/27/16

Tom Madison & Derek Logue review the protest against
"International Megan's Law" held in Oakland CA on July
27, 2016. This event was hosted by Alliance for
Constitutional Sex Offense Laws (ACSOL, formerly known
as "California RSOL," noting the name change was made the
weekend after the event). There was also a hearing regarding
the passport identifiers in federal court that day, so many
of the protesters joined Janice Bellucci in court for the

This video was recorded live along the bay in San Francisco,
so we had a couple of minor interruptions and some wind.
But, this was a rare change to be filmed together, since we
live 2500 miles apart. Derek traveled from Ohio 3000 miles
by bus, and Tom drove for over 12 hours from North
Oregon to attend this event, and there were others who
traveled from other states. There were at least a couple
dozen of us, and things got so busy the morning of 7/27 that
we didn't get as much personal footage as we like.

Taking on Lauren Book and her victim
industry group was a monumental challenge
deep into hostile territory. But we went and did
what many feared could not be done, and in
the end, the Books ran from us like cowards.

This rally is featured in the upcoming
documentary 'Untouchable" at the 2016
Tribeca Film Festival.
ARM at the Miami-Dade Homeless
Registrant Camp

As a follow-up to last year's "Rally in Tally," the
Anti-Registry Movement visited the Miami-Dade
homeless registrant camp in Hialeah. The camp
has no running water or toilet facilities. In fact,
after talking with the residents at the camp, toilets
and TP would be the most desired items. Some
residents have tents and cars but some do not.
Camping gear, water, food, and clothing would
also be appreciated.  Unlike the days when Miami's
homeless registrants were forced to live under the
Julia Tuttle Causeway, the media and local
charities don't visit this camp. Out of sight, out of
mind is the mantra.  This place is truly "Lauren's

Th Dr. Drew Show had a decent five-year run,
but Drew and CNN are going their separate
ways. I got one last appearance in during the
show. The subject was the release of a
high-profile registrant's release from prison.

For this final show appearance, I wanted folks
to see the full segment, not just the part I was
in, in order to take in all that was said. This
segment went better than expected and only on
a couple of points would I have wanted to
interject some reasonable thought. Overall, I
felt this was a decent segment, and I didn't
have to tell anyone to stick it. (LOL)

w/ Tom Madison & Derek Logue

Tom Madison and I have been long-time activists,
each with over a decade of front-line activism
experience. Tom & I started working together in
2008, when Tom created SO Slear Media Group.
We are looking to bring back the group, and as
part of that plan, we are sharing our personal
thoughts on activism and on the sex offender topic
as a whole. I'm more of a narrowly focused guy
(like a laser beam) while Tom discusses things
from the big picture (like a floodlight). We have
some pretty deep discussions which we feel may
help some of you broaden your knowledge on this
topic. We invite you to listen to these discussions
and share your thoughts in the comments section.
