‘There was a lot of shame’: meet the sex offender ‘who is not a sex offender’

____ ____ was labeled a sex offender under a New York law for kidnapping a 14-year-old boy, even though no sex crime was committed – and now his case may go to the supreme court. Full Article

    Georgia had virtually this same case about ten years ago, and the state Supreme Court just pretty much shrugged and said we could’t require the legislature to create a perfect registration system. I was trying to help a friend de-register because he was similarly situated. There is a procedure in Georgia to allow that, but it’s seldom used.

    I would also point out that most of the rules NY imposes are just as ridiculous for those who have committed sex offenses as well. Frankly, I hope the NY Supreme Court rejects him and his case makes it up to the US Supreme Court.

    Disgusting, rotten sham these laws have become.

    I’m in the same boat, sort of. I demanded trial in 1992. I’m on the list tho I know damn well I never assaulted anyone. The regime was started and justified based upon “pathology” yet the mission creep says otherwise.
    IMHO it IS and always was about the collateral use of a DATABASE to monitor the general public. The sex offender made The PERFECT SCAPEGOAT for Surveillance Saints and their desire to protect AND profit via database use.

    You can bet I’ve more empathy for Judge Kavenaugh than most, The gentleman case here is a side effect but certainly not an outlier.

    I only scanned this article but it seems like very typical horsesh*t. The guy in the story is Equan Yunus. He committed crimes that are more dangerous and damaging than did most people who are listed on the Nanny Big Government $EX Offender Registries ($ORs).

    One of the guy’s attorneys, Andrew Celli, said, “Equan is a round peg squashed into a square hole, in the context of a panic about sex crimes in this country. These crimes are scary and horrible. People who commit real sex crimes should be punished and treated, both. But Equan is not one of those people.”

    Oh so typical. Celli is right. Equan is not one of “those people”, he is much more dangerous. He should be punished and treated, both. And as long as $ORs exist, Equan Yunus deserves to be listed on some national, public, lifetime Registry. America doesn’t have to call him a “$EX offender” but we have to call him something. Perhaps “dangerous violent predator”? Sure, that works.

    People who support the $ORs deserve to be listed on them or similar harassing Registries. Informed people who support the $ORs deserve a bullet.
