Kansas Governor Laura Kelly says on Thursday, April 5, she signed Senate Bill 366, which will create a way for drug offenders to seek relief from the Kansas Offender Registration Act and allows expungement of the offense if relief is granted.

Ok, so, let’s see: convictions with some of the highest rates of reoffense = no more registration, and convictions with the lowest rates of reoffense = registration.
Yep! ‘Murica!

So, the MPC suggested that there be less registrable crimes but Kansas is doing the exact opposite. They are adding to the list of crimes that merit registration. I believe that this is just the first clue as to how this country feels about the recommended MPC. Oklahoma already has a meth registry in addition to Sex and Violent Offender. Get this! They want to make a registry for people who steal livestock as well. The idea that registries are losing steam is patently absurd. I don’t foresee it ever ending in my lifetime. But who knows? They legalized medical marijuana here and I would have swore on my Momma that would never happen. “Fingers and toes still crossed.”

Internet sex crimes wouldn’t be possible at all without an internet. Yet an outright ban on it’s use is unconstitutional according to the opinion of SCOTUS @Packingham. Is this really about public safety or is it about protecting the infrastructure itself? Truth is porn exchanges (involving children) evidences no real form of attack or intent to attack. No doubt engaging in internet communication with a child for unlawful reasons is somewhat a real danger, but this too is wholly enabled by the database driven infrastructure. The vast amounts of online porn, lawful and not, are being viewed by younger and younger persons. So when we see much evidence of “monkey see monkey do” variety do not be surprised. Just do go convincing anyone very human sexual aggression will be solved via government database. I reckon there’s a difference between having a database and enslaving human to their maintenance.
