01) Trump Calls for ‘Involuntary Confinement’ of Mentally Ill in Shooting Address

“President Trump called mass shooters “mentally ill monsters” and advocated for the increased use of involuntary commitment “when necessary” during his Monday speech in response to two mass shootings over the weekend that left a total of 31 people dead. “We must reform our mental-health laws to better identify mentally disturbed individuals who may commit acts of violence,” Trump said, “and make sure those people, not only get treatment, but when necessary, involuntary confinement.” Most states have three tiers of involuntary commitment already in place, and all states have some sort of civil commitment.”

02) Trump news – live: President fails to propose gun law change after mass shootings, as Obama warns leaders are feeding ‘climate of fear’

“Donald Trump referred to the shooting suspects in a series of nationwide gun massacres as “mentally ill monsters” and named the wrong US city involved in yet another American mass shooting during a controversial speech on Monday.”

Apparently, the American Psychological Association has come out against this.

Unfortunately…I cannot locate anything on their official website.

01) Fake ‘paedophile hunter’ Jonathan Kay guilty of sex offences

“A man who was caught paying to watch parents make their children perform sex acts online has been found guilty of child sex offences.

Jonathan Kay made 190 bank transfers to families in the Philippines.

The 54-year-old claimed he was a “paedophile hunter” and was trying to stop children being exploited.

Kay, of King Henry V Drive, Monmouth, was found guilty of 10 charges at Merthyr Tydfil Crown Court and will be sentenced at a later date.

One girl who was abused was just three years old.”

There goes another one!

This just keeps going on, and on, and on, and on, and on…

US Attorney General William Barr is tired of “dogmatic announcements that lawful access simply cannot be done.”…

01) Tech firms “can and must” put backdoors in encryption, AG Barr says

“US Attorney General William Barr today launched a new front in the feds’ ongoing fight against consumer encryption, railing against the common security practice and lamenting the “victims” in its wake.

“The deployment of warrant-proof encryption is already imposing huge costs on society,” Barr claimed in remarks at a cybersecurity conference held at Fordham University Tuesday morning. Barr added that encryption “seriously degrades” law enforcement’s ability to “detect and prevent a crime before it occurs,” as well as making eventual investigation and prosecution of crime more difficult.

The existence of encryption means “converting the Internet and communications into a law-free zone” that criminals will happily take advantage of to do more crimes, Barr added, likening it to a neighborhood that local cops have abandoned.

The cost of encryption, he said, is measured in “victims” who might have been saved from crime if law enforcement had been able to lawfully intercept communications earlier.

He also accused tech firms of “dogmatic” posturing, saying lawful backdoor access “can be and must be” done, adding, “We are confident that there are technical solutions that will allow lawful access to encrypted data and communications by law enforcement, without materially weakening the security provided by encryption.”

The more “our” politicians and their lap dogs keep talking…the deeper convinced I am, that they are the most idiotic people on this planet.

Isn’t that guy a criminal, in standing contempt of congress?…

…Why is he not in a prison cell for this [and who even knows what else he’s done, that he should be put away for]?

01) Prineville ‘creep catcher’ arrested

“Police arrest vigilante for alleged menacing, disorderly conduct…

Authorities are not releasing information about the arrest of Cougar Martin Joanis, who was cited on suspicion of first-degree disorderly conduct and menacing and taken to Crook County jail, according to the jail website.

Joanis, whom The Bulletin profiled last month, has been released, and the Crook County District Attorney’s Office has yet to make a charging decision in the case.”

I think my favorite part, is how the only arrest his efforts have gotten…was his own…

Sex Offender Registries Don’t Keep Kids Safe, But Politicians Keep Expanding Them Anyway…

01) nitro: New Article on Sex Registries

02) Sex Offender Registries Don’t Keep Kids Safe, But Politicians Keep Expanding Them Anyway

“Lawmakers are using “stranger danger” myths to keep almost a million Americans out of work and on the verge of homelessness.

The first time Damian Winters got evicted was in 2015. He was living with his wife and two sons in suburban Nashville when his probation officer called his landlord and informed him that Winters was a registered sex offender.

The previous year, when he was 24 years old, Winters had been arrested for downloading a three-minute porn clip. The file description said the girl in the video was 16; the prosecutor said she was 14. He was charged with attempted sexual exploitation of a minor and, because he had used file-sharing software to download the video, attempted distribution of child pornography.

Winters had no criminal record, no history of contact with children and no other illegal files on his computer. Facing an eight-year prison sentence, he had taken a plea deal that gave him six years’ probation and 15 years on Tennessee’s sex offender registry.

The day after his landlord found all this out, Winters found a letter on his porch giving him and his family 72 hours to move out. He ended up in one homeless shelter, his wife and sons in another.

He had no idea that it would be the last time he would ever live in a home. He has been sleeping in shelters, halfway houses and parked cars ever since.

Winters is a member of an expanding and invisible American underclass. In 1994, when Congress passed the first sex offender registration law, the list was reserved for law enforcement officials and only applied to the most serious offenders. Since then, American lawmakers at every level have relentlessly increased its scope and severity.

The registry now includes more than 900,000 people, a population slightly greater than Vermont’s. At least 12 states require sex offender registration for public urination; five apply it to people charged with offenses related to sex work; 29 require it for consensual sex between teenagers. According to Human Rights Watch, people have been forced to spend decades on the registry for crimes they committed as young as 10 years old.”

This article is uncommonly information rich…I recommend reading it.

Mentally disabled man says he was raped repeatedly in middle Tennessee jail…

01) Mentally disabled man says he was raped repeatedly in middle Tennessee jail

“[Will] Ferrell [20 years old] is charged with child rape. He signed a statement that he may have accidentally touched the vagina of a 7-year-old girl he was playing with on a trampoline.

But that allegation is now overshadowed by what happened to him at the Humphreys County Jail.

At 110 lbs, with an IQ of 63, Ferrell was put in a holding cell with hardened sex offenders.

What happened was as bad as anything you can imagine.

“I was raped every day, after dinner, after lunch, at night time,” he said. “When I think about it, what they did to me, when I think about it i just sometimes feel like i shouldn’t be alive for what happened. They stuck things up my rectum I got beat up every day. I really wanted to tell somebody.”

Ferrell said the abuse went on for eight months, which included having hot sauce bottles stuck up his rectum.

Will Ferrell’s DNA was not found on the sexual assault victim. The DNA belongs to another unidentified man.

Will Ferrell might be innocent.”

This is what the system is…

Brutal rape…on behalf of the very idea, that some heroic crusaders are so “tough on crime”…that even the accused are okay to subject to this.

…They don’t say it like that…but they know full and well, that this sort of thing is going on.

This is one of the many reasons why you don’t talk to the cops when they’re looking at you, when they want to charge someone…and you sure as hell do not sign anything.

Even if you just set there with a blank look on your face and refuse to acknowledge anything…that is far better than giving them anything to use against you.

The fact that you are innocent means nothing.

01) Trump officials want to outlaw unbreakable encryption, report says

Thanks to feinmann0!

“As tech companies double down on promises to better protect users’ privacy, the US government may have other ideas. Senior Trump officials reportedly met Wednesday to discuss asking Congress to pass legislation that would stop tech companies from using encryption that law enforcement can’t break, according to a report from Politico.”

Paedophile hunters are often abusers trying to reinvent themselves as ‘good people’, says former police chief…

01) Paedophile hunters are often abusers trying to reinvent themselves as ‘good people’, says former police chief

“Online paedophile hunters are often abusers who are trying to reinvent themselves as “good people”, the UK’s former police child protection head has said.

Jim Gamble QPM, who ran the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Command (CEOP) until 2010, said online vigilantism offered such people a chance to “mask” their past and garner a “status” on social media.

The 59-year-old criticised the effectiveness of some such groups saying he wouldn’t trust them to “walk my dog”.

He said: “They (paedophile hunter groups) attract people with domestic abuse records and coercive control. They give people the opportunity to reinvent themselves as a good person and create this status, to build a Facebook or a Twitter following.

“It makes them feel good about who they are and allows them to mask some of their other behaviours.”

Nothing that we don’t already know…Yet, it’s good to see this issue kept alive, in mainstream media.

BJS fuels myths about sex offense recidivism, contradicting its own new data…

01) BJS fuels myths about sex offense recidivism, contradicting its own new data

“A new government report reinforces harmful misconceptions about people convicted of sex offenses. Here’s our take on how to parse the data.

A new report released by the Bureau of Justice Statistics should put an end to this misconception: The report, Recidivism of Sex Offenders Released from State Prison: A 9-Year Follow-Up (2005-2014), shows that people convicted of sex offenses are actually much less likely than people convicted of other offenses to be rearrested or to go back to prison.

But you wouldn’t know this by looking at the report’s press release and certain parts of the report itself, which reinforce inaccurate and harmful depictions of people convicted of sex offenses as uniquely dangerous career criminals. The press release and report both emphasize what appears to be the central finding: “Released sex offenders were three times as likely as other released prisoners to be re-arrested for a sex offense.” That was the headline of the press release. The report itself re-states this finding three different ways, using similar mathematical comparisons, in a single paragraph.

What the report doesn’t say is that the same comparisons can be made for the other offense categories: People released from sentences for homicide were more than twice as likely to be rearrested for a homicide; those who served sentences for robbery were more than twice as likely to be rearrested for robbery; and those who served time for assault, property crimes, or drug offenses were also more likely (by 1.3-1.4 times) to be rearrested for similar offenses. And with the exception of homicide, those who served sentences for these other offense types were much more likely to be rearrested at all.

Unfortunately, this BJS report is a good example of how our perception of sex offenders is distorted by alarmist framing, which in turn contributes to bad policy.”

The government is one of the biggest propagandists out there, where it comes to “sex crimes”.

They contradict their own findings, as a matter of regular course.
