By focusing only on punishment, experts say we're putting more children at risk
The emerging liberal challenge to take the demonization down a notch. But just a notch.

Md. City Lowers Voting Age for Its Elections to 16
Takoma Park City Council voted 6-1 on Monday to allow 16- and 17-year-olds to vote in city elections starting in November. The council also voted to allow convicted felons who have served their time to vote. http://boychat.org/cgi/deref.cgi?url=https://www.nytimes.com/aponline/2013/05/14/us/ap-us-lower-voting-age-maryland-.html

Hail, an improbable age of consent heroine!
Tom O'Carroll's salute to Barbara Hewson.

Yewtree is destroying the rule of law
Some wonderful quotes and from a most unexpected source, Barbara Hewson, a barrister in London:
"With its emphasis on outcomes over process, the post-Savile witch-hunting of ageing celebs echoes the Soviet Union."
"It is depressing, but true, that many reforms introduced in the name of child protection involve sweeping attacks on fundamental Anglo-American legal rights and safeguards, such as the presumption of innocence."
"It’s time to end this prurient charade, which has nothing to do with justice or the public interest."
http://www.spiked-online.com/site/article/13604

Age of consent should be 13, says barrister
"A prominent barrister specialising in reproductive rights has called for the age of consent to be lowered to 13. She also said that complainants should no longer receive anonymity and and against "fetishising victimhood"
The BBC reports on Barbara Hewson Spiked piece.
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-22459815

BACK BARBARA HEWSON
"A lawyer who bravely spoke out against police witch-hunt Operation Yewtree in a fearless piece of online journalism is being hounded by the corporate media and the idiots who consume it."
http://www.cornwallcommunitynews.co.uk/2013/05/15/back-barbara-hewson/Our approach to pedophilia isn’t working

The right to remain oppressed
"Human Rights Act aids state attacks on freedom and is effectively a tool of social control."
Another piece from Barbara Hewson which gives those of us in the States, who may not be familiar with her, a better sense of her, seemingly, libertarian positions; a rarity in the statist U.K.

“The Book of Woe”: Psychiatry’s last stand
"An account of the making of the new DSM questions whether psychiatry is -- or should be -- a science."
Considering the furor which has greeted its arrival, I would say that the new DSM is close to DOA (dead-on-arrival).

Pedophilia accusations haunt Green politician

"There were indeed groups, in the formative years of the Green Party, which openly sought to liberalize and decriminalize sex with children. The "Urban Indians" group was one, as was the "Working Group on Gays and Pederasts.""
The Greens now assert that their enlightened views on pedophilia, held during their party's formative years, were not representative of their ranks.  Some of us remember rather better.

Eric Toth, accused of child pornography, evaded authorities for 5 years

Eric Toth

Once touted as a gifted and well-regarded teacher, now he's is paraded before the cameras by paramilitary wearing balaclavas. Unanswered, however, is why someone who took candid shots of kids somehow merited inclusion on the F.B.I.'s Ten Most Wanted List.

Sex offenders secretly removed from register
"Convicted sex offenders, including paedophiles and rapists, have been secretly removed from the Sex Offenders' Register, it has been revealed. Police have removed the names after a human rights ruling, which came into effect in September last year, meant that criminals could apply to have their names removed on the grounds that they no longer posed a threat."
The key phrase here for us to ponder is "after a human rights ruling" which I believe to be in accordance with EU directives. Perhaps this might offer some hope to RSO'S in the U.S.
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/crime/10040600/Sex-offenders-secretly-removed-from-register.html

Child sexual abuse civil court orders criticised
"The Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (Ceop) called for a single civil order that could apply to offenders who have not been convicted."
This includes issuing "travel bans" so that "paedophiles" cannot travel abroad.

Don't registered sex offenders need gun rights for personal self-defense more than others?" 
"If we think the Second Amendment right to bear arms is linked in some important and significant way to the natural right of personal self-defense (as Heller suggested), a reasonable claim might be made that it would be uniquely unconstitutional to deny gun permits to otherwise eligible persons on a state sex offender registry."

Michigan sex offender registry expands
"Michigan Governor Rick Snyder recently signed into law a bill that expanded Michigan's sex offender registry to allow the public to view sex offenders who have been convicted of a Tier I sex offense."

"The Case for Full Restitution for Child Pornography Victims"
Worth reading (very selectively) if only for its sheer stupidity.
"Sadly recent years have witnessed an almost insatiable demand for child pornography. To satisfy this demand, pedophiles record their sexual exploitation of children and then distribute the resulting images via the internet to others with similar sexual interests. The child victims are, of course, harmed by the sex offenses committed against them. But they are also grievously harmed by the later circulation of the child pornography, as they must live with the knowledge that images of them are constantly circulating."

America's child death shame
1,770 children were killed as a result of maltreatment in 2009. Every five hours a child dies from abuse or neglect in the US. A recent congressional report concludes the real number could be nearer 2,500
In fact, America has the worst child abuse record in the industrialised world.

Government Seeks to Fine Companies for Not Complying With Wiretap Orders
"The task force is pushing for legislation that would penalize companies like Google, Facebook and Skype that fail to comply with court orders for wiretapping, according to the Washington Post. The cost of non-complying would be an escalating series of fines, starting at tens of thousands of dollars. Fines that remained unpaid after 90 days would double daily. "

“All autistic kids are atheists and atheism is a form of autism”
“Autistic children do not know believing in God because they do not have a section of faith in their brains,” Kaya said, according to daily Milliyet.
“That is why they don’t know how to pray, how to believe in God. It is needed to create awareness in these children through methods of therapy.” Kaya added that autistic children should undergo treatment to “create areas of faith in their brain.” "

Is Twenty-Five the New Fifteen?  
Escaping the Endless Adolescence: How We Can Help Our Teenagers Grow Up Before They Grow Old. 
" According to the authors, teens are living in a “bubble” that is undermining their development. They have their room at home, school, the shopping mall etc. but it cuts them off from meaningful roles in the adult world, cuts them off from close day-to-day contact with adults, and it hyperexposes them to peer relationships, which become their primary socializing influences."

Young Movers, With a Passion for Change" 
as the Boston Marathon bombing continues to be headline news — and gut-wrenching images continue to circulate — we need to keep in mind what behavioral scientists call the “availability heuristic” — our tendency to mistakenly estimate the probability of events based on how readily examples come to mind. A story that leaves a painful and vivid impression like this one can distort our sense of reality for a long time."
This is also known as "availability bias". This where the "dull-normals" can become dangerous, raging idiots.

Bangor council to vote again on restricting where sex offenders can live
“At this point in time, I would welcome any restrictions on the locations of sex offenders in any manner.” “We are not trying to welcome more and more of these people into the community,” “Let us not be worried so much about their rights, but let’s be a little more concerned about the message that we’re sending.”
Message vs. Rights. Guess which one wins?

Paedophiles identified accurately with implicit association tasks
"A combination of two tasks for implied sexual associations has distinguished – with more than 90 per cent certainty – a group of paedophilic men from a group of men with a sexual preference for adult women. In the long term this could lead to a diagnostic test, for example for men who have applied to work with children. "
Oh Joy!! More reason for hope!!

Anonymous Defaces NAMBLA Web Site As Part Of #OpAlice
Of course, we don't observe "Alice Day" nor are we "child predators" but facts have never stopped the stupid, hipster vigilantes of Anonymous from spreading their ignorance and hatred. It's all about making themselves feel morally superior despite being a bunch of anti-social scum. Just like in prison. Where they need to be and where they belong.

Prostitute Hired by 14-Year-Old Steals His Piggy Bank

Charged with robbery but not for having sex with a minor.
Apparently, she robbed him before they could have sex. So she was only charged with robbery. Maybe she thought that having sex with him would be wrong so she decided to just rob him, instead.
