David’s movie Untouchable is now available from Amazon, iTunes, or Google Play.

It tells the stories of several people forced to register in different parts of the country as well as the story of the Book family who have been major parts of expanding Florida’s registration requirements.


David talks about the screening he did for the folks living under the bridge in Miami. Because of the draconian restrictions on where people can live in Florida, the majority of Miami is off limits to folks on the registry. Some folks have found that the only place they can live is under a bridge.
