2019 NARSOL Halloween marathon and “cop-watch”
We are so excited! This year NARSOL and ACSOL are joining together for our now-traditional Halloween Radio Marathon. Beginning at 5 p.m. eastern time, the airwaves will be open for six continuous hours. Co-hosts Larry and Janice will keep the ball rolling. Attorneys will be on the show as well as some attorneys available for consultation in the various states.
We will be receiving reports from listeners, monitoring law enforcement’s actions nationwide, and dealing with Halloween hysteria as well as the shifting legal landscape around the country.
NARSOL is committed to ending Halloween hysteria and unconstitutional practices that prevent families from enjoying the event. Our previous programs have been successful, and we expect this year’s to be even more so. We need YOU to make this happen. We need the participation of our contacts and affiliate organizations in every state. We need you to call in and report on conditions and situations in your states. We need volunteer attorneys in as many states as possible to be on “stand-by” to take calls and answer questions or comment on laws or situations in the states you are in. And we need everyone who is reading this to participate by tuning in to as much of the call as you are able and especially calling to report actions being taken by law enforcement against those on the registry, especially those who are no longer under community supervision.
Do not assume that because your state has previously not enforced Halloween sanctions against registrants that it won’t. In spite of our Arkansas affiliate’s best efforts, that state’s legislature passed laws targeting those on the registry that will be effective beginning this year. And in many states, laws and ordinances in individual jurisdictions or counties are added each year, laws that in no way enhance public safety and are well-documented as having no basis in reality.
If any of our state contacts or affiliates or any attorneys would like to make a commitment now to participate in this year’s important Halloween marathon, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We need you to help us safeguard the freedoms and liberties of registered citizens during this family-oriented holiday.
We certainly do not expect many will be able to stay on for six hours, but feel free to drop in and out as your time permits. We will be publishing an outline with a more detailed schedule as the event gets closer.
So that we can be sure and have adequate tech support for what we anticipate to be a large listening audience, we ask you to register your intent to attend here.
The phone number is 605 313-5169, followed by 957605#. You may call in directly with a telephone or, if you have a speaker and microphone or a headset with a mic, you may access the call through your computer by going to https://www.freeconferencecallhd.com/dialer and following the on-screen directions for inputting the number and the code. We will also live stream the call on You Tube. There won’t be any video, just an audio stream, so you can try this if you’d rather not call in. You can use your Roku or ChromeCast and have the call played over your TV.
Keep in mind, responses provided on the program are merely intended to offer guidance and should not be construed as legal advice. We cannot cover the specifics of any individual’s situation sufficiently to know what the most prudent course of action is, so NARSOL advises all participants to consult with an attorney in their jurisdictions to determine the best course of action.
