UK: More victims able to challenge ‘unduly lenient’ prison sentences…

01) More victims able to challenge ‘unduly lenient’ prison sentences

“Under plans confirmed by ministers today (17 September 2019), the Unduly Lenient Sentence scheme will be extended to 14 new offences.

* 14 new offences added to Unduly Lenient Sentence scheme

* prison terms for a range of sexual offences to come into scope

* part of wider action to ensure punishment properly reflects severity of crimes

Criminals convicted of stalking, harassment, child sexual abuse and other sex offences could see their sentences increased if victims or the public think their punishment is too lenient.

Under plans confirmed by ministers today (17 September 2019), the Unduly Lenient Sentence (ULS) scheme will be extended to 14 new offences – giving victims the power to query the sentences of a wider range of crimes.

The scheme gives anyone the power to ask the Attorney General to consider referring a sentence to the Court of Appeal for reconsideration – where it could then be potentially increased if deemed unduly lenient. In July, such an intervention increased the sentence of a mother who allowed her partner to rape her daughter from three to five years behind bars.

Crimes such as murder, robbery, and a range of terror offences are already covered, however the government has pledged to extend the scheme to further protect the public and make sure victims see justice done.

The move will bring offences including controlling and coercive behaviour within scope as well as further child sexual abuse offences, such as those involving the taking, distributing and publishing of indecent images of children and abusing a position of trust with a child.”

Sounds kind of like a revival on the Roman Coliseum…Take all the “undesirables”, and turn them into a manipulable object to satisfy a vindictive public.

Kids on the Sex Offender Registry…

01) Kids on the Sex Offender Registry

“The headlines today are full of stories of righteous indignation over immigrant children being separated from their families. While that dilemma is certainly newsworthy, the American public seems largely unaware of the fact that tens of thousands of our own children are being taken from their families each year and tossed into a rapacious legal system that chews them up and spits them out as sex offenders. As hard as it may be to believe, The Department of Justice estimates that there are at least 89,000 children on the sex offender registry, and it should come as no surprise to anyone that it’s destroying their lives.

Imagine, for a moment, what it would be like to have your child listed publicly on the sex offender registry, complete with a photograph, home address, and even a description of the sex crime that resulted in his (or her) inclusion on the list. Consider what kind of life your child would have if, because of sex offender restrictions, he couldn’t attend school, go to a park or swimming pool, or have a birthday party because other children will be there. Some states simultaneously have laws requiring minors to attend school while at the same time forbidding sex offenders from being anywhere near a school. 44% of sex offenders overall (and presumably juvenile sex offenders, as well) are unable to live with their supportive families due to residency restrictions. Many are forced into foster care, even as bills have been introduced to bar juvenile sex offenders from foster homes and other communal youth facilities.”

The SOR [sex offender register] is absolutely bankrupt of integrity and all ethical standing, at this point.

The TAP-Net Radar is becoming a sort of de facto place to share information about systems abusive towards human sexuality, which I want tethered to something a bit more structured…so they don’t get lost in everything else…

You’d be shocked how hard it can be to find things on this blog, if you don’t know specific titles or phrases to search for.

This is a large reason why the “sub-blogs” exist…They tie together a lot of related material.

Strictly speaking…this article doesn’t absolutely belong here…but it’s still relevant and important…It contains some good links.

Just thought I’d acknowledge the spreading out of this series.

There’s a lot of rarely shared information in this article…You should read it…It’s uncommonly good.

Swatting Is a Deadly Problem – Here’s the Solution…

Date: August 26, 2019

01) Swatting Is a Deadly Problem – Here’s the Solution

“SWAT teams, in full military protective gear and armed with assault rifles, are being deployed against innocent, unsuspecting citizens all over the United States. Ten days ago, it was Kyle Giersdorf, alias Bugha, a 16-year-old Twitch streamer and reigning Fortnite champion, in Upper Pottsgrove Township, Pennsylvania. Giersdorf was unhurt—in part because an officer recognized him from around town and defused the situation. Last Wednesday, it was Ijeoma Oluo, author of So You Want to Talk About Race, in King County, Washington. Her son was home alone, sleeping. Last weekend, it was a resident of Lancaster, Ohio, who had not shot his girlfriend or taken children hostage. This Monday, it was somebody in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, after a 911 caller wrongly reported a shooting and possible homicide at their address.

All of these people are the latest victims of an internet-age crime called swatting, in which bad actors sic the police on a fellow internet user who has angered, offended, or simply annoyed them.

It’s one of the worst “pranks” imaginable, with sometimes deadly consequences. It started as a niche crime, seldom seen or discussed outside of the gaming community. Swatting battering-rammed its way into the national conversation two years ago, after LA-based gamer Tyler Bariss, peeved over a Call of Duty dispute, attempted to send the police to another player’s door in Wichita, Kansas. Instead, he sent them to the home of total stranger Andrew Finch, who was fatally shot in the confusion. Even now, few officials seem to have any idea what to do about swatting.

One exception: Seattle. As of last October, the Seattle Police Department has maintained an anti-swatting registry that lets people who fear being swatted give the police advance warning by adding the concern to a profile associated with their address—in much the same way you might add a note about a serious allergy, a child with autism, or pets in the house in case of fire. If an officer is dispatched to your address, they’ll see your profile and proceed with appropriate caution. According to Sean Whitcomb, the registry’s inventor and a sergeant at the police department, it was a fast and easy fix.”

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

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.”
