Malaysia: Applications to use sex offender registry still low – Hannah Yeoh

[malaysiakini.com – 8/6/19]

Only 92 applications to check 1,497 names have been received for the sex offenders registry (e-DKK) which was launched by the Women. Family and Community Development Ministry in March.

Its deputy minister Hannah Yeoh (photo, above) said the number of applicants using the registry from April to July was still low due to the lack of awareness in society, especially nursery operators when hiring caregivers or new workers.

maybe we can use this to point out that it cost too much to run Megan’s website in California.

I’m not sure I get the correlation but it doesn’t matter.

If the Registries save one child, they are worth billions of dollars a year. Never mind the fact that they literally harm millions of children a year. And get some murdered. It’s worth it to make the fake moralists feel a tiny bit better about themselves.

I truly don’t get this obsession with $EX. Do people who run “nurseries” (as these fruitloops call them) not care if people only got drunk, drove some neighbor’s children in a vehicle, and “accidentally” got them murdered? Or how about someone who got really angry at a neighbor’s child and smashed his/her face in with a shovel? That is not nearly as dangerous as looking at pictures! Are those people put on their “sex offender registry”? How about people who’ve only been convicted multiple times of beating a spouse nearly to death? Stabbing someone while robbing them? Pointing a gun… Read more »

“How about people who’ve only been convicted multiple times of beating a spouse nearly to death?” They are caned 12 times and permanently crippled for life after the 20 years in prison “Stabbing someone while robbing them? “ Death penalty because it’s attempted murder in some states they cut off the hands as well. “Pointing a gun in someone’s face?” Again death penalty guns aren’t legal to the public unless employed in a certain field and have a military background “Or perhaps they can just use the nursery to hide their meth?” Meth is another death penalty in Malaysia The… Read more »

That is all very interesting, not sure what to think about it. I know very little about criminal justice and what is effective or not. The U.S. imprisons people for very, very long durations. Too long. And a much higher percentage of its population than the rest of the world. I wonder if removing a person’s freedom is more effective at preventing crime than is torturing and maiming someone? One person is locked away and unable to commit a crime. The other is maimed, free, and possibly a little agitated. And using drugs is a death penalty? Seems 100% immoral… Read more »

REMINDER: Please refrain from making statements that include calls to violence or references to violent actions. ***Moderator***

@Moderator: I hear you. I totally understand not wanting people to make your forums an ugly, violent place. Or certainly not contributing to anything illegal. You don’t need to be 8chan. And as our glorious “leader” said, “The perils of the internet and social media cannot be ignored and they will not be ignored.” So we can expect big government to grow by perhaps 10,000 new employees whose only task will be to police the internet and find people who need their attention and “help” from big government. There is no problem they cannot make worse. But the “references to… Read more »

Hmmm. Sounds like Malaysia may have a better handle on dealing with violent crime than we do.

“not care if people only got drunk, drove some neighbor’s children in a vehicle, and “accidentally” got them murdered? Or how about someone who got really angry at a neighbor’s child and smashed his/her face in with a shovel? That is not nearly as dangerous as looking at pictures!” I know this seems a relevant question, especially to us, but it is a losing argument and muddies the waters when attacking the registry. Just because some other circumstances may call for the same treatment, if they want to be consistent and half ass appear to be rational, does not necessarily… Read more »

Thanks for the valuable feedback, really appreciate it. I agree that the argument “does not necessarily lessen the perceived need for what is already in place.” But that is not the point. In fact, it is easy to see that people could love the $EX Offender Registries ($ORs) and then think, “Yes, you are right, we do need all of those other Registries.” But the main point is to show obvious proof that the point of the $ORs is not public safety or protecting anyone. That is the main point. The $ORs exist for illegitimate reasons that only real scumbags… Read more »

Just saw this topic pop back up in the news. The registry only applies to those convicted after 2017. And recently a person convicted in the UK who served 9 months went back to MY to get a scholarship for a doctorate.
