If these tiny shi*-hole countries must justify a registry…it’s for police eyes only. That part they have right. Isn’t that the way all registries in this country started out?
That’s what I thought.

You can bet our Justice Department had something to do with this. My hatred for our Government grows stronger every day.

Look forward to the same problems caused by registries in the US. I wonder how the sex registry came to be there. Was it FaceBook or Lauren Book, or both, that got it going? I guess the former can be known by how soon internet identifier registrant mandatory self-reporting finds its way into these registries.

This entire sex offender registration industry has been fueled and probably funded by our government. It started here in our illustrious state in the 1940’s and this virus has spread around the world. It is truly sad to see where our country and the world is headed.

This has made in America written all over it.


At least a third world country like Trinidad has enough sense to keep it out of the Public’s hand and in law enforcement’s hand only. We do have SOME stupid politicians here in America

Pragmatically, what’s the difference between a “police-only access” registry and a rap sheet? The cops have access to your felonies in any case. For the most part, when people hear of “registry,” they assume “Public Internet,” which in this case is exactly wrong.

I am not in favor of registries, but let’s be blunt: Public, Internet registries are magnitudes worse in their effect than private, law enforcement-based registries.

Are people really this amazingly stupid? If its available to police only, that same exact information is already available to police when they run someone anyway. Unreal.

The US registry started out as a price club application. These 2 registries will be like the US registries eventually. These 3rd World foreign governments are easily succeptable to corruption. The registry itself is cruel and unusual punishment that requires special rules and, punishments for breaking those rules, that do not apply to any other class and thereby criminalizes normal acceptable behavior for registrants. It is a punishment to have your criminal history given to a foreign government that is not bound by the US Constitution as to what it can do with that information. Foreign governments have been known to kidnap Americans. Think John McCain. Adding IML legislation to the registry increases the already cruel and unusual punishment of the registry.

I am aware of ‘anal rehydrating’ as I have heard it called. Just because the US Government was involved in that and waterboarding does not mean that foreign governments will not do much worse things to someone since those governments have been known to do that kind of thing and are not bound by the US Constitution or US law. Now I’m thinking

I have heard it argued that what the US did to detainees was not the US doing it, even though it was uniformed serviceman and women doing it. It was evil individuals who happened to be in uniform. And there was like one fall guy for all of this that that they prosecuted and one woman who got a lesser punishment .In any case, as bad as that was and it was horrible, John McCain when taken prisoner was abused and they messed his hands up so bad, he allegedly can’t use the internet and never has. McCain was kept so long because of who his Admiral father was. McCain suffered a worse fate because of the prejudice against him. When McCain flew that plane over Vietnam, he was acting under orders. He did not fly that plane on his own volition. He didn’t figure he’ll fly a plane over Nam for the hell of it. So they thought he would talk and they thought he was a prize to abuse and the prejudice was because of who he was. Unfortunately, the Viet Cong knew who McCain was. But if they didn’t, it wouldn’t have been right for the US Government to tell them who McCain was so they could decide to abuse him as bad as they wanted. The IML does exactly this. It’s a catalyst for abuse. Even if we can’t trust our government, with the possibility of rogue agents doing these misdeeds or it came from higher up, we still cannot trust all foreign governments capable of worse. In the past, Iran took US citizens hostage and the hostage takers have been connected to the Iranian Government. Its hard to know how now much ISIS has infiltrated many foreign governments. I don’t think the US should be handing condemning information about any US citizens over to them. I also don’t think the US should be aiding North Korea in the abuse of Americans. North Korea have kidnapped foreigners in their country and in other countries such as Japan and South Korea. Kim Jong-Il had a Japanese actress and film director kidnapped, enslaved and forced to make propaganda movies for North Korea. North Korea allegedly hacked Sony Pictures because they were mad about a movie made which was a comedy about killing their leader. Foreign governments known to kidnap, hack or abuse Americans cannot be trusted to adhere to, or expected to adhere to, US Constitutional principles. The IML is cruel and unusual punishment.
