CNMI: Sex registry’s constitutionality questioned

Northern Mariana Islands – A registered sex offender, whose adult girlfriend is currently pregnant, is questioning the constitutionality of the law that created the CNMI Sex Offender Registry, as this prevents him from being around minors, including his own children. … Banes said, the statute is unconstitutional, under both the CNMI and the U.S. Constitutions as applicable in the CNMI under the Covenant.

    And he’s right. Since it’s well established that 97% of sex crime is committed by persons NOT ON THE REGISTRY, at the very least the government should have to show some indication that Kaneshi is likely to be among the 3% before imposing probation terms kicking him out of his own family.

      Dustin, it looks like you posted under the article as well. Good and thanks.

      • Dustin

        I did and always urge others to do the same. The editors of these publications need to know that their audience is not entirely registry nazis.

        • Will Allen

          I do like the term “Registry Nazis”. May use that a lot more. It would be great to have all Registry Supporters very solidly branded as “Registry Nazis”.

          I often say “Registry Harassers/Supporters/Terrorists/Nazis”. Bit of a handful. I’ve used “Registry Terrorists” a lot but that does seem to confuse simpletons.

          @ Will:

          Agreed. From here on out, I will refer to registry supporters as “Registry Nazis.” I used it whimsically in the above post, but find after more thought that it’s very fitting.

        • Will Allen

          Amen. I may use “Registry Supporters/Nazis” simply because I’m afraid when person sees “Registry Nazi” that the person might not think that it applies to them. I want people to equate “Registry Supporter” to “Nazi”. Lot of accuracy there as well.

          A person may not be a Registry zealot but people need to know that if you just think that Registries are “acceptable” or “don’t care”, then you are f’ing complicit and you are a Nazi that needs to pay.

    What is so sad is this small island followed our lead and will get caught up as this idiotic nation as it switches course. That is so sad that our own garbage is attractive to others to follow.
    Like us the Mariana islands follows poor leadership. 200 Americans rejected by Philippine authorities NOT THE HEADLINES WE AMERICANS WANT!

    Damn poor leadership directly from Utah. Angel Watch my a$$. Passive? My A$$! The pieces are falling together. HN>MN =NULL. “WE HOLD CERTAIN TRUTHS SELF EVIDENT”

      @Timothy:
      The “small island” you refer to is part of the U.S. The Northern Mariana Islands are a U.S. Commonwealth, just like Puerto Rico, etc. As such, they’re not “following our lead,” they’re following mandatory Federal Law (i.e. SORNA). They do not have the 10th Amendment “escape clause” States admitted to the Union have.

        Following is following no matter the motive.

        • AJ

          @Tim:
          Au contraire, mon frère. Compelled to follow and choosing to follow are two distinctly different paths. Or do you feel a dog on the end of a leash you control is the same as an uncollared dog?

          The intimation in the original post was that this is a foreign sovereign deciding to follow the U.S. lead. Far from it. They are compelled to follow Federal law, unlike the 50 States.
