VA: ACLU denounces governor’s signing of new sex offender registry bills

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Virginia today condemned Governor McAuliffe’s action on two bills that will create a new sex offender registry, SB 1074 and HB 1353.

The new law will require the Virginia State Police to create a supplemental sex offender registry that includes all persons convicted between July 1980 and July 1994 for a crime that would mandate sex offender registration if it occurred in 2015. The supplemental registry will contain a name, year of birth, date of the conviction, jurisdiction in which the conviction occurred, the person’s age on the date of conviction, the offense of which he was convicted, and the Code of Virginia section of the conviction.

    My question, will the VA-ACLU sue or just denounces?

    This obviously has been done elsewhere already but imposing it at this time could hopefully get it tossed on the blatant violation of ex post facto. They already have a mechanism in place that provides no tangible measure of safety other than emotional security.

    Next thing there’s going to be a registry that will have politically and financially motivated speculators put people on there for crimes they are deemed likely to commit.

    Oh wait, I take that back, there already is one – my bad!

    The likely progression of this madness will be to try and convict them for crimes projected to be committed in the future based on more prejudicial data, as in the movie “Minority Report”.

    The future is here!

      That’s the reason they will put you in prison for failure to register. They’ve already assumed that the only reason you would not want to give police your private information is to repeat your crime. They have already convicted you and put you under their control, with threat of incarceration, based on a past crime.
