The U.S. has also come up with preventative measures to help stop its citizens from committing child sex crimes in Thailand. Mosby said U.S. passports identify convicted child sex offenders. Full Article

How much funding is provided by Rep. Chris Smith either directly or indirectly?

So here we have another so-called “expert” who is championing a law that would have prevented four cases instead of focusing on preventing the hundreds or even thousands of these crimes in Thailand.

But if it saves just one…

“The U.S. has also come up with preventative measures to help stop its citizens from committing child sex crimes in Thailand. Mosby said U.S. passports identify convicted child sex offenders.” This same preventative measures, also stop me, going the Philippines to attend my daughter’s graduation from Doctor of Medicine, which, destroyed her greatest desire to have me march with her.

I see two things wrong in this. 1. Fed listen in on interviews/court case or what ever so the victim doesn’t have to more than once. And so the person can be prosecuted here. Where is the accused has the right to face the person making the complaint in court? Would this go against due process? 2. The travel law…I don’t really think they meant out of country. But maybe IML will include such a law. But again how can the US prosecute a citizen that commits a crime in another county if it was not against an American citizen?… Read more »

Being a victim doesn’t make you an expert, specialist or an authority.

The more these so called child safety advocates keep talking about child sex trafficking and exploitation that will get people trip off so bad that laws needed to be passed for “protection”, the more we start to realize that this could all be a joke coming from bad people.

Why is it that every child trafficking law passed in the United States is the result of someone from another country crying crime to our politicians? Who are we? The police for the World? We have enough laws coming out of our own citizens’ fears and emotions. I think this young lady, Mosby should help devise a program (in her own country) to educate the young kids in safety, and seek government help to alleviate poverty so parents don’t sell their children to make a living. Because making life even more miserable than it is for American citizens on the… Read more »

I know a couple who have a school and homes for such children in Thailand . They say that Thailand is a kingdom and the current ruling family are very powerful, self-centered and corrupted. We have a two-faced situation here. This woman can only come here to advocate because the Kingdom do not really care, however, will take the Feds money and put on a little show. She can very well be working for the Kingdom for purpose of pulling more money from our Fed’s and she putting on very good show to do it.

The article doesn’t (and probably wouldn’t) indicate if there were any challenges or critique of anything she was saying. Given W&M is my alma mater, I sure hope some empathetic and intelligent people spoke up. W&M, as a state school, unfortunately has less control over who they bring to campus and who they can prevent coming to campus. There was an instance where a former President was pushed out of office by the VA General Assembly in part because he had the gall, the gall! to allow an art show and discussion by sex workers about their art and their… Read more »
