Get rid of the registry…

01) Get rid of the registry

“There’s nothing I can say about the tragedy in Las Vegas, except this: some version of that will happen in Michigan, probably sooner rather than later.

The politicians are either in the pay of the gun lobby fanatics or resigned to the fact that they can’t possibly overcome them, so nothing will change.

Nothing, that is, unless and until people somehow demand that democracy and sanity be restored. So far, they haven’t, and the senseless killing will go on.

But there is something we do have an opportunity to change: Our stupid and morally offensive sex offender registry. Last year, the Sixth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals correctly struck down major sections of it, such as its clearly unconstitutional adding restrictions retroactively, such as banning convicted sex offenders from working within a thousand feet of a school.

First of all, I don’t know how, under our Constitution, you can go on punishing people who have served their sentence, no matter what the crime. That’s what they did in the old Soviet Union.

[…]

Here’s how you fix it: Get rid of it.”

Go listen to this.

It’s time people finally started speaking sensibly and with sanity, about this issue.

    There’s a criminal record system, that should be enough. There’s no such thing as sex offender registry in Brazil, as far as I know.

      It’s caused trouble in the U.S., since shortly after being created and implemented.

      The problem goes deeper, than the social ostracizing…not that that isn’t bad enough.

      I’ve witnessed the networks of predatory fanatics, who exploit these registries…They are no more than a different style of sociopath, literally…

      Something should have been done about this, over a decade ago.

      No such thing as a sex offender registry in Brazil but given that you’ll be raped, beaten and probably killed in a Brazilian prison (which I imagine is even worse than a US one) it’s not really much better.

      The real enemy are the sex offender laws themselves. Sex should not be a crime…!

        I’m glad that I have a higher education degree, actually: having one makes you go to softer prisons that aren’t as crowded and are much better. It’s not a spa, but not a rape hole either.
        I agree with you, though. I do think that there are real sex crimes, that involve real violence, but I don’t think that any harmless behavior should be considered crime. A lot of people in the registry shouldn’t be there.
        Another problem besides the registry and the too-strict laws is the divergence in application. A kid can be taken to report an adult for child sexual abuse or a woman can report a man who did nothing to her and have their allegations taken as truth because declaring someone who was accused of child abuse or sexual violence against women makes the judge look like a child molester or misogynist. So he will apply the sentence even in absence of proof, sometimes. The whole thing is broken in three levels: registry, laws and application.

        For some insight into the ‘Box Of Chocolates’ experiences of an English boy lover in Brazil and his dealings with the police, judiciary and prison life there, you might do worse than read J Darling’s amazing book: It’s OK To Say Yes (Acolyte Press).

        Pretty sure I’ve crossed paths with a listing of this one, before.

        At present, I’m not collecting more physical books dealing with the subject of “us”…If I could get an e-book version…maybe.

        I’d like to scan the books I’ve already got…So I can keep and carry them more discretely…Maybe even covert some of them into audio books.

        “I do think that there are real sex crimes, that involve real violence, but I don’t think that any harmless behavior should be considered crime.”

        Yeah but then it’s not really a “sex crime” it’s a “violent crime”. The whole feminazi industry is about making sex into a crime.

        “I’m glad that I have a higher education degree, actually: having one makes you go to softer prisons that aren’t as crowded and are much better. It’s not a spa, but not a rape hole either.”

        Wow really? In the UK you would be raped and beaten no matter whether you have a degree or not.

        You’re right on your point about divergence in application. Actually I just wrote a news piece on an even worse example of that where the police are busily distributing child porn and newspaper journalists are busily fapping off to it and the far left feminist media actually think that’s all great as long as they lynch a few white males in the process, good on them! Fap away! See here: https://holocaust21.wordpress.com/2017/10/07/police-distribute-child-porn-vg-newspaper-downloads-child-porn-and-guardian-celebrates/

        I dunno whether I’d call the system broken, its always felt too sinister for me to call broken. I’d call something broken if there’s a way to fix it, or you can just walk away and use a different one. But the system of ruthless paedophile witch hunting seems both impossible to fix and impossible to run away from. Waking nightmare might be more accurate.
