“Among the atrocities that Frances and Dan Keller were supposed to have committed while running a day care center out of their Texas home: drowning and dismembering babies in front of the children; killing dogs and cats in front of the children; transporting the children to Mexico to be sexually abused by soldiers in the Mexican army; dressing as pumpkins and shooting children in the arms and legs; putting the children into a pool with sharks that ate babies; putting blood in the children’s Kool-Aid; cutting the arm or a finger off a gorilla at a local park; and exhuming bodies at a cemetery, forcing children to carry the bones.
It was frankly unbelievable—except that people, most importantly, a Texas jury, did believe the Kellers had committed at least some of these acts. In 1992, the Kellers were convicted of aggravated sexual assault on a child and each sentenced to 48 years in prison. The investigation into their supposed crimes took slightly more than a year, the trial only six days.”
In short…this all started with a girl who got spanked, deciding she was going to get even by creating lies about the Keller’s…including that one pooped on her head, and raped her with a pen…She later recanted, but the momentum of this witch hunt had taken a life of it’s own.
Twenty one years later…it was finally decided by the authorities, what has been blatantly obvious to many all this time…that the Keller’s never got a fair trial, and the whole thing was an invented sham.
This case is the justice system at it’s absolute worst…and it’s an example amongst many, of why the dangers of social hysteria are so real.
What is so staggering here…is that few of these charges were even credible, if any ever were at all…Yet, they still got convicted and sent to prison for 21 years.
…The justice system is anything but rational and fair, when it starts getting paranoid about the fate of children…even when everything about a case is screaming, “You should know better, than to believe this!”…
I’ve always believed…that the people behind this atrocity, were people trying to push a social agenda…And the Keller’s were sacrificial lambs, to their ambitions.
…In fact, that is pretty well how I see the struggles of sexual minorities and the sexually active young…We suffer gravely, due to other people’s social ambitions.
…To call those people inconsiderate, cold, callous, abusive, exploitative and inhumane…would still be a massive understatement.
…Their “leadership”, has been a crime against humanity…and against the human species.
…You cannot criminalize what is going on biologically [and quite naturally], originating beneath the skin of most human beings on the face of this planet…then turn around and call yourself a decent, respect worthy human.
Today…it is not only starkly obvious…but it is down right obscene, just how unnatural we know it to be…that this “leadership” is forcing people to remain sexually celibate, well into their adulthood [for some minorities, well beyond that]…even when we know, masses of the public have their highest biological need for sexual intimacy [aka: their sexual peak], during these many, many years of forced celibacy.
…This is something very real, very tangible, stolen from these masses…
It is…in a very real sense…it’s own form of rape.
When are we going to stop tolerating this?…These people who think they can leave trails of devastated lives behind them, in their own social pursuits…all because they have decided on all of our behalves, that “we are the perverted sub-humans”?
I don’t know about most of the rest of you out there…but I feel really, really sick and angry, about the social horrors wrought, by people with these sorts of social ambitions…
…Those types of ambitions are ugly, inhumane…an example, of the worst our species has to offer…as close to evil, as I can see anything ever being…
…And it is an outrage, watching those sorts of people gain social power…or even a life of privilege and leisure in some cases…off the suffering, of those harmless and good natured people, who they destroy through their social ambitions.

I just might end up having to vote for Senator Warren, if she runs for president…
“There are three words that strike terror in the hearts of Wall Street bankers and corporate executives across the land: President Elizabeth Warren. Anxiety over Warren grew Monday after a magazine report suggested the bank-bashing Democratic senator from Massachusetts could mount a presidential bid in 2016 and not necessarily defer to Hillary Clinton — who is viewed as far more business friendly — for the party’s nomination.” Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks discusses a Presidential bid by Senator Elizabeth Warren.”
“Paid maternity and paternity leave on the horizon, tax cuts for the middle class proposed, Antonio Weiss dropped like a bad habit…is there a growing trend here? Ring of Fire’s Sam Seder and The Majority Report contributor Michael Brooks discuss how Elizabeth Warren’s strive for change is becoming an unofficial, yet extremely effective plank for the Democratic party.”
“Massachusetts senator Elizabeth Warren criticized a US economy that she says favors the wealthy, just as President Obama sets off for Michigan as part of a US tour promoting his administration’s central, and continued, role in the economic recovery…”
“Congressional liberals rebelled against a must-pass spending bill that would keep the government open past midnight Thursday, complaining it would roll back critical limits on Wall Street and sharply increase the influence of wealthy campaign donors.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) led the insurrection with a speech on the Senate floor, calling the $1.01 trillion spending bill “the worst of government for the rich and powerful.”
Warren urged House Democrats to withhold their support from the measure in a vote scheduled for Thursday. However, the bill passed three hours before another government shutdown.”

You know…”pedophiles” do all manner of human behavior…
…Do people “triggered by pedophilia”, ever go into a manic rage when reminded of a loving or mundane act any “pedophile” has ever done?

“You have to steel yourself to read the victim impact statements of the parents of Breck Bednar, the 14-year-old boy murdered by an internet predator four years his senior, Lewis Daynes.
I would go further in wanting the police and authorities to have as many tools needed to deal with online criminality – not only by predatory groomers like Daynes and child pornographers, but terrorists and cyber-criminals. As much as it pains my pre-motherhood self, who was an enthusiastic supporter of civil liberties, now I am a parent I am afraid I agree with the Prime Minister’s renewed attempt at allowing the security services to snoop on internet data. Civil liberties should be protected, but not at the cost of our freedom from terror and crime.”
…What will ever be good enough?…
Nothing will be good enough…because they lost their child and nothing, not even this endless fight against internet phantoms, is going to make up for what they have lost.
Poor kid…it is tragic…
…The internet does get used for bad intentions, sometimes.
…It also gets used for really complicated, yet necessary, things too.
People who have been traumatized…it seems they have to keep busy, fighting in any direction…otherwise, they may just go crazy with their grief…
There has got to be some way, to guide this in a better direction.

“The way New York corrections officials extracted good news from not-so-good news illustrates the fact that recidivism, though constantly discussed, can be widely interpreted — and misinterpreted. Below, a few reasons why.”
One thing you have to keep in mind…is that when it comes to this sort of social issue, “cooking the numbers” tends to be the norm…Because what they want, is to sell an idea which fits their own agenda.
This is an interesting read.

Thank you to Kamil Beylant @Securityconcern for this find.
“HARRISBURG – Pennsylvania’s highest court ruled on Monday against lifetime registration for juvenile sex offenders, saying the law was unconstitutional because it did not give them the ability to challenge a presumption they would likely reoffend.
The Supreme Court ruled 5-1 against the provision of the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act that applies to more serious sex offenses committed by older juveniles. At the heart of the case was the court’s finding that the registration represented an “irrebuttable presumption” that violated the defendants’ due process rights.
“We agree with the juveniles that (the law)’s registration requirements improperly brand all juvenile offenders’ reputations with an indelible mark of a dangerous recidivist, even though the irrebuttable presumption linking adjudication of specified offenses with a high likelihood of recidivating is not ‘universally true,’” Justice Max Baer wrote for the majority.”
It’s about time, that we finally started seeing some type of meaningful pushback, to this crazed prosecution frenzy our justice system has been getting relentlessly dragged through for decades.
Probably the biggest problem with todays situation…is that it is based upon revenge, and the idea that people who do certain [often a widely diverse range of] things, are rightly treated like throw away human beings. You run foul of the law?…They can use the justice system to completely destroy your life, and leave you with no means to recover from the devastation.
It also refuses to take into account, that most people experience large changes over their lifetime…If they committed a crime as a young person, they are not the same person twenty years later…not usually. And nobody should have an entire lifetime judged, by a tiny fraction of it…Nor should what good they have left to offer in this world, be denied.
…I’d like to say something regarding the lone dissenting judge, who cited victims suffering for the rest of their lives…because that is an important issue…but it has also been taken to such an extreme, that it blinds the justice system to common sense, fairness, honesty and base human decency.
It has always galled me…understanding that most of these people who get caught up by the laws, are going to be taken and dumped into these “containment camps”…where they will be subjected to all manner of threat and violence…almost constantly, if not literally all the time. A majority of the people who end up there, are really just kids themselves…young people. Many will be raped, assaulted and violated for years…even decades…This whole model is based around destroying human beings, and exploiting them like chattel…It has nothing to do with rehabilitation, or any hope at a positive, long term outcome.
…How exactly does it work out…that rape and violence are so awful, that it is unthinkable we imagine tolerating it at all…Yet we think nothing of subjecting certain classes of individual to it? How is it, people write all these laws to stop it…and then have a system in place, which promotes these exact same acts of rape and violence…in some notion that “we are addressing the problem”?
This is staggering hypocrisy…
…And a large part of the problem…is that nobody has the decency, nor the spine, to stand up and say the obvious…that victims who want to see perpetrators tormented forever, should never be allowed to decide or influence the fate of anyone, at all.
The system does not take into account, this very serious problem of victims who have a very warped, sometimes sociopathic and demented outlook, leading to inhumane and cruel intent. It pretends as though because something happened to them, their motives must be of good and reasonable character…When the fact that something has happened to them, will often cloud and color their judgment in very extreme ways…Many will want extreme revenge…Which leads us to these insanely overreaching policies, which factually do little to no good, while just dragging out the many problems they cause.
There is something very wrong with this picture…where the tables are suddenly reversed…and putting aside whatever the specifics of any case are…the victim is now holding a position of power over the perpetrator, choosing how to influence their fate…knowing what they say, will have a heavy impact on that human beings fate.
Now…some people do deserve harsh punishments, that is true…But this state of things, is just wrong on so many levels…It descends to the depths of our worst emotions, and our worst traits as human beings. It is allowing rage and revenge to dictate policy…and that is never good. It is causing us so, so, so many problems, today.
I realize some people will take strong exception to this…because not all victims are like that…But we need to address the fact, that to many of them are…and that this is a problem, which needs to be dealt with.
Oh!…Don’t miss the last two sentences of this article…”Obviously”, they had to inflate their advertisement view ratio, by making this very short article into a “two click” [multi page] reading experience for it’s readers…
…But we get treated to something, which I have spent years complaining about…It’s the typical practice of using special, yet unclear, jargon…
…”aggravated indecent assault”…”involuntary deviate sexual intercourse”…
These are both two fine examples of umbrella terminologies, which cover a very diverse range of behavior…And when you encounter these terminologies in news reports, you will never have the first clue, just what the person charged is being accused of having done.
These type of terminologies are tools of debasement, which inhibit those of a mind to curtail unchecked extremes, and revenge based prosecutions, within the justice system.
There needs to be clarity and transparency, especially in these kinds of cases which carry such a heavy impact.
