Are Sex Offenders Human?

In July 16, 2015, Barack Obama visited a federal prison, the first sitting president ever to do so. It was a powerful statement of support for a broad movement—stretching from Black Lives Matter to Right on Crime—to reform the U.S. criminal justice system, one of the most punitive in the world.

Six months later, on February 8, 2016, the president signed a law requiring the passports of citizens with convictions for sex offenses to be marked “Sex Offender,” globalizing an already extraordinarily harsh domestic system of surveillance and punishment. In September, a federal judge in California dismissed a constitutional challenge to that law. Full Article

Haha, the real question is are those domestic terrorists that support the registries human? Persons who openly and blatantly enact slavery, murder, discrimination, disenfranchisement, travel bans, restrictions of every form of expression, impose those ideas on their children, and hide behind group vigilantism. Hmm, are they human, hell no, they are evil leftovers of European witch hunts. They are the same people who created the Inquisition, witch hunts, slavery, etc, and they continue to be allowed to do this crap with so called legitimacy? I have never seen so many non humans cower in fear from the very people they… Read more »

According to obama we are probably NOT human, then again NEITHER is he, glad his job is over !

The signing of the IML was by far the most destructive thing obama did as president. It is an insult to the human rights he claims to be champion of. His complicity with chris smith and company was particularly disturbing given the fact that he knew better. He didn’t have the guts to do the right thing – and look how well it turned out in the end for his policies. A year ago, I would have been devastated to think that in the next election, the Dems would become a minority party. After what obama did by signing IML,… Read more »

And worst yet! He didnt have to–he couldnt run for office again! I hate you Obama!!!!

By putting individuals into groups based on apparently similar characteristics and attributes, each individual is systematically dehumanized because their individuality is now inconsequential to where they fit into an erroneously conceived supposedly homogenous social and legal classification. In other words sex offenders or any other group such as real estate agents for example can’t be human because both labels come with dehumanizing expectations based solely on the overall ascribed group prerequisites. To be a real estate agent a person must have achieved certain things and the same is true for sex offender classification; except the achievements for sex offenders are… Read more »

Oh we are indeed human. In fact, we are more human than most because we have had our most shameful behavior made public, something most people never have to endure.

Yes, we are humans; but we are not Americans. We owe America nothing.

I would like to add the following: I don’t care what the alleged SCROTUS says, this registry is reprehensible, an abomination, and is not to be considered law. Americans citizens have only one lawful duty in the entire constitution, jury duty, except when an officer sworn by oath to support and defend the Constitution. There is no duty to serve in the armed forces, to protect anyone, to help anyone, and especially to do anything that harms your own “self interest”. I declare by act of the declaration of independence that a state of hostility exists between all persons enjoined… Read more »

Just to clarify, “hostility” means anger.

Hi Rick, Totally agree with you. I think that lawyers have been sitting on their hands with the very issues that you mention. Do it seem like they actually want to help resolve these illegal issues – NO. They are using fear as has always been done…have to have a boogy man to keep the people scared and of course, “Just think of the children” and “If it saves just one child…” BLAH BLAH BLAH Nevermind that none of it works. Nevermind that it actually totally illegal and dare I say “Un-American.” The government has declared us the enemy and… Read more »

These films are good as long as they get the message across to people who have open minds…..what are the precipitating circumstances in people?

The guy in NC who was recently arrested for chaining up the lady as part of the couple did not help. The same with the other NC guy recently arrested who chained up the little girl….that did not help.

At the core, it is the human that is still there who needs to be reached and noted to the public. Not everyone is like the two mentioned here above, but better than, much better than.

Fact is no one would have suspected we were “non human” before we had committed an offense. Most of us were fine, upstanding citizens, and by their logic, we were once humans. In fact we are the same people, if anything only wiser. Can an individual suddenly change species? By not recognizing us as humans, they are blind to the non registrants who will commit 90% of the new s*x crimes. They will never under such assumptions, except by blind luck, be able to stop the crime before it happens and people getting hurt. They don’t recognize the humaness of… Read more »

If I may…. “Fact is no one would have suspected we were “non human” before we had committed an offense.” I think this should state “convicted of an offense” As I mentioned before I know someone who committed a sec offense long ago, and yes what she did was illegal at the time she did it. She has REPEATEDLY stressed to me that she is NOT a sex offender. American Pig Dogs only consider those who got caught to be sex offenders and they rarely look within themselves or their families to consider weird Aunt Cheryl or reclusive Uncle Bob… Read more »

Yes, convicted.

Are we not men? No, we are DEVO.

Dehumanization has preceded every genocide in human history.
We are already at stage 6, Preparation, of the 8 stages of genocide, following the passage of IML.

If things don’t change soon, we will be the next group facing government sponsored mass murder.

If I see GE get a contract for a large furnace, you can bet I am going underground!

Why are they called Sex Offenders anyways? Per Wikipedia, the term “offender” means:
1. One who gives or causes offense.
2. A person who commits an offense against the law, a lawbreaker.

Both are present tense. Yet, if someone committed a sex offense in the past, they are still considered an offender. They are ex offenders, like anyone else who is not currently committing an offense.

Anyone that believes a “Registrant” is not human for the things they’ve done and believe they cannot be forgiven and rehabilitated because of what they have done are being delusional. Fearmongering propaganda from media has brainwashed and undermined many families that are caring and protecting their love ones and making them fearful enough to go to the government and legislators for protection and passing crazy laws to keep every registrant in place.
