I love it. MI refused to hear the other case so it stands that it is unconstitutional as applied retroactively. Guess what? It is unconstitutional applied prospectively as well. These type of “bans”, call them what they are, effect a wide variety of fundamental liberties, as well as being so vague they are impossible to comply with..Also, what do you guys think about these sexual assault accusations flying all around the country? I find it very disturbing that someone can claim that they were assaulted two three decades or more ago and can destroy peoples lives just by someone making those accusations….No evidence, no witnesses, no way to cross examine any potential witnesses or anyone for that matter, all based on someones claim that they were sexually assaulted. I find it absolutely insane that this can happen. This is going to explode into something that the AG’s and DA’s are going to be blind sided by. Like I said before, McCarthyism all over again, just with a different face.

I stated in my motion that sex offender registration resembled McCarthyism but now it is identical in every aspect except for the reason for it happening. These laws now are identical to Jim Crow laws, McCarthyism, and all the discriminatory laws ever created, all with a different face. No man is safe anymore. beware men, don’t piss any women or men off, you will be next….And hope you never pissed anyone off in the past 30-40 years or more….

Has anyone read the originally published Doe v Snyder opinion? It was corrected 4 days after to exclude comparing the residency restrictions to “punitive sundown laws”.

Sundown towns, sometimes known as sunset towns or gray towns, are all-white municipalities or neighborhoods that practice a form of segregation by enforcing restrictions excluding people of non-white races via some combination of discriminatory local laws, intimidation, and violence. The term came from signs that were posted stating that “colored people” had to leave the town by sundown.

Interesting to see the depth of their thoughts, irregardless the final opinion. As if “moral lepers” wasn’t enough.

Has anyone else noticed the Michigan registry is actually down? At least from here it is. It comes up as forbidden.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
