You think thoughtcrime’s bad, ladies and reprobates?
Try sightcrime…though preferably not in Maine, USA…
Those who peer at children in public could find themselves on the wrong side of the law in Maine soon.
A bill that passed the House last month aims to strengthen the crime of visual sexual aggression against children, according to state Rep. Dawn Hill, D-York.
Her involvement started when Ogunquit Police Lt. David Alexander was called to a local beach to deal with a man who appeared to be observing children entering the community bathrooms. Because the state statute prevents arrests for visual sexual aggression of a child in a public place, Alexander said he and his fellow officer could only ask the man to move along.
"There was no violation of law that we could enforce. There was nothing we could charge him with," Alexander said.
He attended a talk with Hill a week later and brought the case to her attention. Hill pledged to do what she could, Alexander said, and the result was a change through the Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee in the House, which made the law applicable in both private and public places.
"Visual sexual aggression"?
Does this mean any kid who meets eyes with an adult will be…Defiled Forever!?
Yup, it’s the latest slab of totalitard, “Th1nK of the cH1LdRen!!!”, Trojan horseshit brought to you by the powers-that-be.
In my review of Andy Nowicki’s Considering Suicide, I made mention of how the Deus, declared deceased, actually lives on in the policies of supposedly secularized Western societies; sure enough, this implementation of ocular Orwellianism reminded me of sentiments expressed in the Gospel of Mark.
From Chapter 9, verse 42…
Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin,it would be better for him if a great millstone were hung around his neck and he were thrown into the sea.
…and, rather fittingly, verse 47 of the same chapter…
And if your eye causes you to sin, tear it out. It is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye than with two eyes to be thrown into hell.
At least in the Bible it’s only proverbed, rather than policed!
“Separation of church and state”? Who the fuck are you kidding? Fritz obviously didn’t check the corpse when he declared the death of God.
Someone needs to reload and finish the job.
