At Least We’re Not Albuquerque
Where city officials are dealing with a sex offender convention. Sex. Offender. Convention.
ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – A national convention about sex offenders is coming to Albuquerque to push for lighter punishment for sex crimes. But opponents, including Governor Susana Martinez, said we need the opposite.
Lloyd Swartz, 43, is president of the Reform Sex Offender Laws New Mexico. The husband and father is also a convicted sex offender.
In 1987, the then-17-year-old Swartz was convicted of sexual assault for an incident in Texas. He spent ten years on probation. But in 2000, New Mexico laws changed to force all sex offenders to register with the Department of Public Safety, even those like Swartz who served out his probation long before. Swartz will need to stay registered for another 13 years, nearly forty years after his “youthful mistake.”
“It is immoral to create laws that punish people in perpetuity even though they’ve served out their sentence,” said Swartz.
Next month, like-minded advocates from all over the country will come to Albuquerque to try to do just that.
They want to change sex offender laws to have the online registry only available to law enforcement. They’re also pushing to remove names of offenders once they complete their probation and to prohibit the state from forcing convicted offenders from registering retroactively.
“It’s a violation of human rights to continue to humiliate, tear down and destroy families forever,” said Swartz.
Reform Sex Offender Laws is a pedophile run scam organization with ties to NAMBLA and militant pedophiles. Yeah that’s right, there is a militant pedophile movement. It also has ties to the radical left and all you liberals out there who think Howard Zinn is a genius should note he signed on to support this movement. One of the movement’s goals is to stop the “demonization” of rapists and child molesters. Here’s a quote from their website:
Stop public vilification and demonization of sex offenders. Oppose the use in the media or by public officials of obviously pejorative language with regard to offenders. Label only actually violent acts as violent crimes – define violence simply and logically as a physical attack or threat that causes real harm.Use of the term “pedophile” should be extremely limited and accurate.Children should be defined as persons under the age of puberty.
So if your daughter hit puberty at 10 or 11 she’s no longer a child and the 35-year-old you catch trying to have sex with her isn’t a child molester. Makes sense.
And did you catch that “real” harm stuff? I guess a threat to do something fantastical like send a kid to Hell for not cooperating with an assault would be redefined as non-violent even though a threat is being used to coerce the child into sex. I’ve blogged about threats of that type before (like the Voodoo Rapist of White Plains) and it is a kind of violence to threaten things against people even if you and I know there’s no chance of that threat happening.
But anyways you can read up on R.S.O.L. over at this awesome website which keeps track of perverts and degenerates. I say at least in Greenville we don’t have a convention of these scum but South Carolina does have a chapter of R.S.O.L. run out of Chester.
