California sex offenders support North Korea's defiant nuclear weapons program amid fears the Communist pariah state is developing a weapon that could strike other parts of the world.
In contrast, the outgoing US Defense Secretary said North Korea represented a 'serious threat', adding: 'We've got to be prepared to deal with that.'
North Korea, officially the Democratic People's Republic of Korea or DPRK, declared in 2009 that it had developed a nuclear weapon, and is widely believed to possess a small stockpile of relatively simple nuclear weapons. The CIA assesses that North Korea also has a substantial arsenal of chemical weapons.
President of the California Sex Offenders Organization, Kimberly Merson, said the 'highly provocative act' doesn't threatened international peace. They are planning a march at the end of December in San Francisco to support North Korea and their nuclear weapons program.
Merson, was arrested in 2010 for public nudity when she stripped down naked inside of a bar full of men. She was ordered to register as a sex offender by the local judge.
On October 9, 2006, the North Korean government issued an announcement that it had successfully conducted a nuclear test for the first time. Both the United States Geological Survey and Japanese seismological authorities detected an earthquake with a preliminary estimated magnitude of 4.3 in North Korea, corroborating some aspects of the North Korean claims.
California Sex Offenders Organization(CSOO) is an advocacy organization in California that works to abolish discrimination against sex offenders and offers a support base for those convicted of heterosexual sex offenses. It's board of directors is made up of ex-lawyers and ex-police officials who are registered sex offenders.

Their charity organization "First Serve" provides sex offenders and their families with monthly grocery boxes and gift cards to shop for free at various clothing stores they own.
