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…


Date: June 08, 2019

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.

Congress is taking on YouTube’s pedophilia problem – At least one lawmaker has proposed a bill to ban content with children…


Date: June 08, 2019

01) Congress is taking on YouTube’s pedophilia problem

“Three senators are calling for YouTube to take more direct action in protecting children against predatory behavior on the platform in the wake of a recent New York Times story, which investigated sexually predatory views and comments on children’s videos posted to YouTube.

Sens. Josh Hawley (R-MO), Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), and Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) have each taken a step in addressing YouTube’s child safety issue. Hawley announced yesterday that he would be introducing a bill that would make it unlawful for video-hosting platforms like YouTube to recommend videos that feature minors. Recommendation systems are under particular scrutiny after the Times report, which showed YouTube’s recommendation algorithm suggesting videos of younger and younger women and girls if a user starts off watching erotic videos.

“The sexualization of children through YouTube’s recommendation engine represents the development of a dangerous new kind of illicit content meant to avoid law enforcement detection. Action is overdue,” Blumenthal and Blackburn’s letter reads. “YouTube must act forceful and swiftly to end this disturbing risk to children and society.”

See that?…

…They just invented a “new kind of illicit content”, and strongly suggested that it is [or should be] punishable by law.

…They’re talking about home videos here.

VIGILANTE FANTASIST Man on a ‘mission from God’ to expose paedos burned down a school and home of innocent victim…

01) VIGILANTE FANTASIST Man on a ‘mission from God’ to expose paedos burned down a school and home of innocent victim

“A DEVOUT Christian who waged a vigilante witch hunt and burned down a school after claiming he was on a “mission from God” to expose paedophiles was today jailed for 15 years.

Philip Day, 56, set fire to a secondary school which he falsely claimed was “a playground for paedophiles” and torched an innocent man’s £1.6m Tudor home during an eight-year campaign to “protect children”.

Quoting the Bible and claiming “God” was “justifying his actions”, Day also stalked a teacher in the false belief he had raped a pupil at the school and falsely named him as a paedophile in videos and messages on Facebook.

The unnamed teacher received a chilling message whilst on holiday with his family from Day saying: “If I was you I would asked for police protection.

“You have two options, hand yourself in to the police or hide. Your life as you know it is about to change.”


…Should I even say, just how familiar a few of those messages are?…I’ve recieved what amounts to the same.

A lot of “pedophile hunters” are mentally ill, themselves.

USA, Japan, Austria Rebut U.N’s Proposal To Ban Anime…

01) USA, Japan, Austria Rebut U.N’s Proposal To Ban Anime

“The United Nation’s Committee on the Right of the Child proposal for the Optional Protocol to the Convention on the Rights of the Child draft from February, 2019 garnered a lot of attention from gamers and anime fans due to the language used in the draft that indicated guidance to enforce the restriction of drawings, cartoons, audio, and written works of fiction featuring “children” engaged in sexual exploitation. If the proposal was enforced it would obviously mean plenty of animes, games, and visual novels would get snuffed out of existence. Well, the U.N., posted up some of the responses from the State parties, individuals, and organizations, and some surprising countries came to the aid of anime.

Over on the OHCHR website they have the letters from all respondents available for public viewing. Specifically, the United States was the only State party to explicitly defend anime in writing against the U.N’s proposal, which they acknowledged such works (that weren’t deemed obscence) were protected by the First Amendment.

The U.S’ letter to the U.N., dated May 6th, 2019 actually agrees with a lot of the U.N’s proposals for protecting kids, but when it came to paragraph 62 about banning representations of “non-existing children”, the Human Rights Treaties Branch wrote…

“In the United States, federal law provides that it is illegal to create, possess, or distribute a visual depiction of any kind, including a drawing, cartoon, sculpture or painting, that depicts a minor engaging in sexually explicit conduct and is obscene. However, visual depictions (CGI, anime, etc.) where there is not a “real” child are typically protected by the First Amendment (unless the visual depictions are obscene) and the United States’ obligations under the ICCPR. We suggest editing the paragraph as follows: “… urges States parties to prohibit, by law, consistent with their national legal systems, child sexual abuse material in any form …. including when such material represents realistic representations of non-existing children.”

It’s a subtle change, but recognizes that national law takes precedence over U.N., recommendations, and that anything not deemed “obscene” by regional law is still legal.”

The following videos are from earier this year, when it all started.

U.S. District Court Orders Michigan Legislature to Fix Ineffective and Unconstitutional Sex Offender Registry Act Within 90 Days…


Date: May 27, 2019

01) U.S. District Court Orders Michigan Legislature to Fix Ineffective and Unconstitutional Sex Offender Registry Act Within 90 Days

“DETROIT – On Thursday, U.S. District Court Judge Robert H. Cleland issued an order setting a 90-day deadline for state lawmakers to revise Michigan’s unconstitutional Sex Offender Registry Act (SORA).

The order comes nearly three years after the U.S. Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously ruled in August 2016 that portions of SORA that lawmakers added in 2006 and 2011 – which imposed sweeping geographic exclusion zones where registrants cannot live, work or spend time with their children, extensive reporting requirements, and automatic registration for life without due process or the ability to appeal – are both ineffective and unconstitutional, and cannot be applied retroactively to those convicted before the changes went into effect. The district court had previously found other parts of SORA violated registrants’ First Amendment and due process rights.

01) Online Harms White Paper


The Online Harms White Paper sets out the government’s plans for a world-leading package of measures to keep UK users safe online.

This consultation closes at
11:59pm on 1 July 2019

Consultation description

The Online Harms White Paper sets out the government’s plans for a world-leading package of online safety measures that also supports innovation and a thriving digital economy. This package comprises legislative and non-legislative measures and will make companies more responsible for their users’ safety online, especially children and other vulnerable groups.

The White Paper proposes establishing in law a new duty of care towards users, which will be overseen by an independent regulator. Companies will be held to account for tackling a comprehensive set of online harms, ranging from illegal activity and content to behaviours which are harmful but not necessarily illegal.

This consultation aims to gather views on various aspects of the government’s plans for regulation and tackling online harms, including:

the online services in scope of the regulatory framework;
options for appointing an independent regulatory body to implement, oversee and enforce the new regulatory framework;
the enforcement powers of an independent regulatory body;
potential redress mechanisms for online users; and
measures to ensure regulation is targeted and proportionate for industry.

This is an open public consultation. We particularly encourage responses from organisations, companies and others with relevant views, insights or evidence.

This consultation closes at 23:59, 1 July 2019.

An easy read version of the Executive Summary will be available shortly.

Legal Action to End Registry Begins in Michigan…


Date: May 01, 2019

01) Legal Action to End Registry Begins in Michigan

“The sex offender registry soon could be a thing of the past. The latest calmly reasoned step has been taken by the American Civil Liberties Union in Michigan, which points out that the registry doesn’t work. Right now, there are two cases out of Michigan, including a class-action lawsuit, saying several parts of the registry are unconstitutional.

“In August 2016, the federal Court of Appeals held that Michigan’s registry is unconstitutional,” Attorney for the ACLU in Michigan, Miriam Aukerman, said.

Aukerman represents hundreds of registered citizens fighting the public registry and some of the sex offender restrictions imposed by the state. That suit is in response to the state of Michigan not coming into compliance with the Court of Appeals decision.

“Basically what the Court of Appeals said is that the registry is so ineffective, so broken, that it violates the Constitution. What we know, through research, is that registries don’t work. They don’t keep people safe.”
