Why Current Child Porn Laws Imprison the Wrong People (Opinion)

Growing up, I was taught that prison was a place where people went when they did bad things. It was simple then: There were good people and there were bad people.

As I got older, the picture grew more complicated. I saw good people do bad things, and I saw bad people do good things. But recently, when one of the best people in my world did something that landed him in prison, my beliefs about the justice system and how it punishes American citizens were completely upended.

  1. American Detained in America

    This is the second time I’ve seen this excellent article linked here. It was listed on The Huffington Post in 2013. Unfortunately, people don’t care about things like this, they continue to let their hysteria and emotion influence their beliefs about sex offenses.

      I think most people write this off as collateral damage in the war on sexual offenders. Not unlike the bloody wars this country carries out oversees. It makes me want to vomit.

  2. Punished For Life

    Here we go again. Does it take someone with a Doctorate Degree to figure out that the laws and penalties are not fixing the problem. Back to a little common sense. I just can’t believe there is such a lack of common sense in the system. It’s really sad. And these people go to school for many years to contribute so little to society. See an image accidentally and spend 5 years in prison? Come on man!

    Good opinion piece. While she covered a lot of material, it’s unfortunate that she failed to mention her friend’s future, ongoing & forever punishment on the S.O. Registry.

    Yes, this Country is in serious trouble.

  4. O.A.L.

    I just read a comment on you tube responding to Mr.Trump’s remarks. It said that his voter support is easy to find on the sex registry because that’s the kind of people that find nothing wrong in his actions.

    My point being, this is proof that the public thinks that if you’re on that list, then you must be a degenerate that abuses others. And that is the fault of the very system they support.

    I commented to her that not all on that list are dangerous predators and that she should educate herself about the registry before making such a comment. She acknowledged my comment. Maybe I turned one person’s opinion. Isn’t that how a movement starts? 🙏🙏🙏🙏😀

      Somebody should yell out sex offender at the next national debate, lol.

      • PK

        I would have to agree with Mike R on this comment.

        “Someone should yell out sex offender at the next national debate LOL”

        Is that something funny to you sir?

        Your comment is clearly out of line.

      • Michael

        I know. Right? Unfortunately, what is good for the goose is apparently no good enough for the gander.

        ….

        Anyway wasn’t it Bill that actually did commit some type of sex crime? Then Hillary attacked those victims? Trump was talking amongst guys, something you’re probably not too familiar with.

        • Punished For Life

          Yes, Trump would have been much better off, now that it has been a decade, if he had used the term “Camel Toe” instead of the “P” word.

  5. mike r

    whats up rick…you’ve made several comments now that are really disturbing. I have to comment man. I’m not on here to preach why trump is the only choice we have besides the extremely corrupt Hillary but yu calling trump a sexual predator and that last comment saying someone should stand up and yell sex offender at the next debate is very disturbing, I think you need to regroup because your sounding like the people we are fighting against…you should understand that especially since your the kettle calling the kettle black
    ..at least if your on the list you are perceived as the kettle…I understand you maybe joking but it’s really not funny

    • Michael

      Personally, I am more concerned with the type of people who would defend a white nationalist, misogynistic, bigoted homophobe like Trump. I realize that the majority of his supporters are ill-educated, low-information types, but c’mon!

      I am waiting for MGM to release the Apprentice tapes, which according to a season 1-2 producer are apparently much worse than the Access Hollywood tapes.

      Trump has lost the election. He and his supporters just don’t know it yet.
