HR 515, The scarlet letter, and ‘International Megan’s Law’

he statute (full text here) requires the secretary of state to affix a “unique identifier” on all passports issued to “covered sex offenders” — a “visual designation affixed to a conspicuous location on the passport indicating that the individual is a covered sex offender.” A “covered sex offender” is anyone previously convicted, at any point in his/her life, for a sex offense involving a minor.

It is, as far as I can determine, the first time in U.S. history that any such special designation will appear on the passports of any U.S. citizens, and I think it should send at least a small chill down all of our spines. Not to overdo the analogy, but it does call to mind Martin Niemoller’s famous dictum (“First they came for the communists . . .”). It is part and parcel of a dispiriting and disheartening campaign (on which I have commented a number of times in the past — see e.g. here, here and here) piling punitive disability upon punitive disability — not just public shaming, but also restrictions on residency locations, employment, Internet use, etc. — on this particularly despised class.

It sounds like a classic example of government spending too much money to impose moral standards without much to show for it. This isn't going to stop people from going on asian sex tours or fucking underage minors on craigslist, for instance.

lol we did that here in germany aswell...
but instead of sex offenders it was jews!

next thing is they put em into special camps^^

>punitive damage
Kiddie diddlers should be publicly hanged.
Those who defend them should hang along side.
>>
>>19704
The problem is that what is considered a "kiddie" in one country is considered the flower of manhood/womanhood in another country.

>defending the public urinators registry
You do know that people as young as 8 are on the registry right?

This is pretty islamophobic

underrated post

As someone who was repeatedly raped by a trusted person, this is stupid. It's just bureaucrats trying to control things that just can't be controlled, getting frustrated, and doing something stupid to act tough for their voters and egos. There comes a time when you just need to move on.

I was messed up for years, and now I'm not.

I wouldn't wish this permanent branding on anyone, even a back alley babyfucker.

People need to be able to move on.

How could you say that, when stare rape is rampant within our borders?!?!?!?!?!

Are you kidding me, a fucking ten year old sex offender?

First they came for the child abusers...

I stopped reading there, pedophile.

Islamic countries don't convict on that basis.
>>
>>19734
Sounds like you have completed the circle of child abuse, so of course you wouldn't want child abusers to be branded now that you are one and wish to operate with the same level of impunity as your abuser.

Kek, okay , that's a new one, normally people just call me an attention seeking liar.
It's nice to have a little variety now and then.

You know, I don't like this law. Marking pedophiles for all of us to see when they walk out into the world is a bad idea. Here is why:

WHY DID WE RELEASE THEM FROM PRISON IN THE FIRST PLACE?!

>1998
>sex offender

just..what? isn't that person 8 years old?
>>
>pedophiles comparing themselves to holocaust victims

This is bait right?

You do realize most people on the registry are neither pedo's or rapists right?
