Sex Offenders International

It would have taken enormous courage to say no because it was a shockingly awful idea that played well to the simplistic and ignorant.  President Obama lacked that courage. Perhaps he’s too busy with his lame duck session. Perhaps he feared that a courageous move would have affected the chances of the Democratic candidate for president. Perhaps his talk of reform was just talk, and he’s every bit as good with bad criminal law policy as everyone else.

No matter. He signed it. It’s now law.

After months of hype about the historic bipartisan consensus that we must make the American criminal justice system less harsh, President Obama finally signed a justice reform bill into law Monday. There’s only one problem: Instead of making the justice system more fair and less punitive, the new law will make it more vindictive and petty. Specifically, it will require people who have been convicted of sex crimes against minors to carry special passports in which their status as registered sex offenders will be marked with conspicuous identifying marks.

These people lie to you. It can never be emphasized enough that they don’t care one rats ass about you nor your family nor this country and your rights. They want money, power, control, prestige and they’ll siphon it from your very veins. Till the day comes that you draw your last breath. And then they’ll hit your corpse with a death tax…..

For those who travel overseas it permitted to by the host nation it will make them especially vulnerable to crime and crusader vindication. Also the local authorities will treat them differently. This is exactly what they want to happen. By the way, there is no constitutional authority to inform other nations about crimes committed in the us. The us is not the media for other nations. I I have never witnessed such abuses of power, with the exception of fascist nations, like nazi germany. This nation has gone so far as to endanger its citizens in foreign nations, some of which are not our allies. What a disgusting nation this has become.

Rick, I just returned from Sweden and France. Swedish airport customs was a breeze with the same two questions everyone got: “Hello. How long are you staying? And for vacation or business?” Nothing else. No customs at all on entering France. (I suspect they just crumple up those Angel Watch green notices and toss them in the trash.)

Concerning Obama signing : he prevented the override

That’s so true! Not that I want to let President Obama off the hook but if he would have vetoed the IML bill, Congress would have probably overriden it anyways just like they overrode the 9-11 sue the Saudis bill

IML passed both Houses under a “suspension of the rules” with a small number of congress cretins present during voice votes so it is very speculative to assume that they could muster the wherewithal to override Obama’s veto.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
