Virginia Plans to "Double-Bunk" Committed Sex Offenders In Order to Double Capacity of "Treatment" Facility

One more reason why they're really prisons.

Is Illinois reaching the tipping point on its sex-offender registration rules?

Definition of ‘sexually violent’ skewed

Editor: You can be branded a "Sexually Violent Predator" by our government without ever committing any actual act of "violence". In every state using the term (as well as by the U.S. Federal government) it can mean having ANY kind of "sexual contact" with someone under the age of 14 or 13 (depends on the State), and even if no force or coercion was employed in the act.

Got that? The mere act of having "sexual contact" with someone under that age is, in the government's definition, "sexual violence". No actual "violence", as most sane people would understand the term, need be employed.

Combine that with the fact that "sexual contact" can consist of just about anything: kissing, touching (even through clothes and even if what is being touched are not genitals) and the government can utterly destroy the lives and reputations of lots more men and, increasingly, women.

The States and the U.S. government, having thus committed their own violence upon the rights of their people - not to mention upon the English language - can easily deploy the term "Sexually Violent Predator" to put away decidedly non-violent offenders, effectively, for the rest of their lives!

So now, when the government wants to put someone away forever, and for what may have once been considered inappropriate behavior, they have just the weapon to do it.

Its a weapon that not only guarantees the permanent incapacitation of the "offender", but also the overwhelming support from a pandering press and a paranoid public.

What a great weapon!

Diversion rather than prison granted after Heath woman has sex with teen boy

Clearly, had the Defendant been a man, he would not have been offered a plea deal offering him probation, not prison.

Sex offender board didn't set up program

These "treatment" programs are a cynical tool for "commuting" prison sentences to life imprisonment. Treatment was never a serious goal but a clever work-around to subvert the Constitution. Pseudo-Psychology has been the tool to bring it about.

A 12-year-old boy - posing as an 18-year-old homosexual man - actively pursued and engaged in sexual encounters with a man he met via an internet dating service, a court has been told. Naturally, the man was arrested.

Press Freaks-Out Upon Discovering That Retired Priest Was On Board Of Martijn

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/05/21/dutch-catholic-priest-pedophilia-endorsement_n_865124.html

Can a 6-year-old commit sexual assault?

Who on Earth believes that this is a healthy and appropriate response to two small children, literally, playing "doctor"? Well, apart from the Taliban, apparently the prosecutor, Madison Wisconsin District Attorney, Lisa Riniker, does.

Several questions immediately spring to mind:

Is Grant County so flush with taxpayer money that the police and district attorney have uncovered and prosecuted all other, more serious, crimes in their community and are now free to pursue six-year-olds?

Also, let's assume for the moment that Lisa Riniker is sincere in her stated aim of getting the six-year-old boy the "help" he needs (although from past knowledge of prosecutors, sincerity is not one of their stronger traits). What will that "help"consist of? And "what"
will he be helped with? Sexual curiosity?

Will that "help" actually end up hurting him?

How will this intervention of "help" affect his future emotional well-being?

There were two children involved in playing doctor, both a little girl and a little boy. How was it that the boy was singled-out for prosecution?

It should be manifestly clear that the anti-sex crusade begun decades ago has mutated and expanded to claim ever more victims, including the very children it professes to be "helping".

"Inappropriate" behavior has now become "criminalized" behavior with need of "qualified" taxpayer-funded "intervention" and categorization, if not outright imprisonment and permanently degraded citizenship.

Some of us said, more than a quarter of a century ago, that this was the path along which we were being taken by a bizarre and hateful alliance of right-wing, religious fundamentalists and bitter, power-hungry, female supremacists who had, as their common interest, the hatred of human sexuality.

And, sure enough, it is now easy to see the progression that this movement has taken, with a gradual erosion of rights extending to ever-greater numbers of victims.

One final question: where will this end?

Oak Park police charge boy who allegedly made sex-ranking list

This sort of First Amendment protected speech, obnoxious though it may be, would have warranted nothing more than a parental or school principal reprimand in times past.

Now, it's the sort of behavior that is treated as a criminal offense and will, no doubt, eventually require registration as a sex offender.

The "Zero Tolerance" society now deems a schoolboy's creation and dissemination of a list ranking schoolgirl's attractiveness (or other attributes not described in the news piece) as a criminal act warranting criminal sanction. Why are we not surprised that the net the hysterics have cast is growing so wide as to ensnare even the kids themselves? Could it be that they are running out of victims, err.. "victimizers"?

Osama bin Laden's daughter witnessed his death, says Pakistani official

You would have to have been living under a rock to be unaware that Osama bin Laden (who, we now realize was himself, not living under a rock) has just recently had his brains dashed-out in a blazing act of home invasion.

That he was unarmed when he was shot in the head while in his bedroom prompts little anguish when one considers his role as titular head of a global movement of nihilistic savagery whose ultimate goal is the destruction of the individual and the enslavement of all humanity to the service of a vengeful God.

That is, until we learn, in details which came into view over the next several days, that his wife (wives?) and several of his many children were present during this summary execution, including a twelve year old daughter who both witnessed the act and later recounted it.

Incidentally, she too was wounded in the assault.

Having your father's brains blown-out before your eyes must surely count as a likely source of deep and debilitating trauma for a child, even if your father was Osama bin Laden.

Or so one might think.

Those who otherwise become agitated to a point of nervous exhaustion when condemning any act of "inappropriate touching" seem to be strangely silent on the fate of this young girl.

The logical conclusion one can draw from their silence is that the girl should count herself lucky that she wasn't propositioned by a sex tourist.
