NARSOL to monitor infringements of rights this Halloween

Among NARSOL’s initiatives, NARSOL in Action (NIA) is one of the most popular. This monthly teleconference features NARSOL activities and projects, usually in the legal realm, currently being undertaken. Guests are often attorneys involved with litigation or knowledgeable about specific legislation or litigation.

On Halloween night, NIA is holding a five-hour, marathon teleconference with attorneys discussing current legal issues, NARSOL state representatives reporting on the activities of law enforcement during Halloween activities, and the phone lines open for citizens to call in about what is going on where they are, especially with activities that they believe may be illegal or unconstitutional. Placing restrictions on registered citizens who have completed all their punishment, and who are therefore no longer under any sentencing requirement (to include probation, supervision, etc.), and most especially confining them to their homes for several hours, is highly questionable from a legal standpoint. We believe it’s a wanton violation of a citizen’s Fourth Amendment protection from unlawful seizure.

Please read NARSOL’s press release in which law enforcement is put on notice that we will be watching them, our attorneys will be evaluating their actions on Halloween, and NARSOL stands ready for legal action if we believe it is warranted.

If you would like to participate in the call we ask that you sign up here so that we have an idea how many will be in attendance.

The phone number is 641.715.3660, access code 957605#. Or, if you have a speaker and microphone or a headset with a mic, you can join the call through your computer by clicking here and following the on-screen directions for inputting the number and the code.

Happy Halloween!
