Raised on the Registry: The Irreparable Harm of Placing Children on Sex Offender Registries in the US…


Date: June 11, 2017

01) Raised on the Registry

“Jacob C. was 11 years old and living in Michigan when he was tried in juvenile court for touching, without penetrating, his sister’s genitals. Found guilty of one count of criminal sexual conduct,[1] Jacob was placed on Michigan’s sex offender registry and prevented by residency restriction laws from living near other children.

This posed a problem for his family— Jacob’s parents were separated, his father lived in Florida, and Jacob could not live in the same house as his little sister. As a result, he was placed in a juvenile home. When Jacob was 14—and still unable to return home—he became the foster child of a pastor and his wife. According to Jacob, the couple helped him to “deal with the trauma” of growing up on the registry.

Since his offense fell under juvenile court jurisdiction, Jacob was placed on a non-public registry. But that changed when he turned 18 during his senior year in high school, and his status as a sex offender became public.”


02) US: More Harm Than Good: Exempt Youth Sex Offenders From Registration Laws

“States and the federal government should exempt people who commit sex offenses when they are under age 18 from public registration laws because the laws violate youth offenders’ basic rights. Available research indicates that youth sex offenders are among the least likely to reoffend.”

Presumption of Innocence Applies Regardless of How Horrible the Accusation…

01) Presumption of Innocence Applies Regardless of How Horrible the Accusation


“Why isn’t our mainstream media questioning the multitude of breaches against the presumption of innocence and the Rule of Law in the Jason “Byrd” Dickens & Dylan McEwen case? No evidence has been presented to a judge to justify keeping them in jail for 4+ months. No bail hearings. An unknown source gave “information” to the police in January of 2016. Who is this source? Only one of them has a lawyer (as of the day this video was posted). The media conference implies they were arrested on Aug 25th, when actually they were charged on Aug 25th, after most likely being arrested in April of 2016. The police conference video, linked below, creates more questions than answers. Watch and decide for yourself if you think they’re being treated fairly and with the presumption of innocence.”

01) My Discord Cancer: Chapter 3 My Creepy Stalker



I probably would have had fun taking the pictures, especially if they were a stranger over the internet…Back then, I was always a bit of an exhibitionist.

I loved the idea of being outside naked, where anyone could have seen me.

I’m not really sure why…Maybe it was natural pushback, to the puritanical environment I was living in?…Maybe it was my way of finding a natural balance for myself?

…But, that doesn’t mean I don’t understand the problem of people getting too pushy.

One of the things I always hated about living in a sexually repressive culture, is having to navigate relational encounters of a sexual nature…Most specifically, the hard situation of dying to approach someone you are interested in, while mortified that things will go really bad after you float the idea to them.

There are just so many additional pitfalls, created by society.

I’ve often asked…why can’t the facts of life “just be there”, visible and learnable without shame…while those interested can self elect to make their interest known?

The unnecessary complications have never made any sense to me…It just seems we are saddling people, with an unhealthy mental complex.

Getting back to the video:

In a better world, we probably would not broadcast private interactions to the rest of the world…But, she didn’t give legal names or pictures…so…I cannot say she handled herself wrong, here…nor during her interaction with this person, as it was happening.

She is right…It’s scummy to use another person like that, just to get with someone else…It’s also creepy, trying to push a sexual thing after you’ve already told them you’re not interested.

That he would attempt leveraging buying her stuff, anonymously, off of her [Amazon.com?] wish list, is also bad.

It sounds to me like he is a product of the puritanical culture, I was just talking about…

In my humble opinion…all issues of human relations should be out in the open, where they can be observed, guided and held accountable.

The fact that this normally is not the case for kids and young people, has led to a kind of forced existence…where child and youth sexuality occurs in an underground. naïve and unaccountable environment.

When there is nothing else there to guide them…and when they feel they cannot seek out this guidance…people come up with their own ideas and plans, to get what they want…Sometimes, it’s a really bad plan.

So much of this kind of thing could be avoided, if we would just be open and honest about these issues.

Tucker Carlson and Sam Harris Explain How Liberals Enable Radical Islam…

01) Tucker Carlson and Sam Harris Explain How Liberals Enable Radical Islam


“Tucker Carlson interviews Sam Harris about how liberals enable Islamic extremism.”

Interesting [and I think, good] point…

…It’s probably true, that the reason I easily accept the stance of Sam, is because I was raised with a fundamentalist belief in Christianity…It is my life experience, that people absolutely can believe “god is real, and this is what he says”…I know what it’s like, to place stock in the time after you have died…and to believe “it’s going to be so wonderful”.

If you don’t repeat the dogma, and behave as though you believe it…you get punished and/or ostracized…

I have no problem recognizing how violence and terrorism develops, in this type of setting.

Of course, there are other factors…But that kind of a base is like the perfect formula, to build contempt and incompatibility with people who are different.
