      Elites decided in 1968 Too many were behaving in immoral ways. Men were thinking with the wrong head, teenage pregnancies were increasingly unsustainable and abortions were on the rise. Murder and assault by the late 70s and eighties with as rampant, mostly because of the rise of gang and drug use and associated activity. The OMNIBUS Crime and control acts of 68, 94 were advertised as a framework for benevolence, but in reality and implementation wrought a war on the people’s behavior. States and federal agencies are attacking the social ills of America, often overlapping jurisdiction and authorities. The introduction of the electronic database however was a game changer and some capitalized to the N’th degree. The database augmented infrastructure power to overwhelm traditional notions of jurisdiction and sovereignty was vastly underestimated by leadership. The virtue signaling advanced by the DOE03 decisions, where the fed gov again opted to attack (convicted) citizens ONLINE & by default, on a world wide scale.

      There’s a problem with the Static-99 in that it has an anti-homosexual bias built into it. Risk level is elevated simply because a male child molester has male victims. Is there really any distinguishable characteristics between preferential pedophiles who molest little girls and those who molest little boys? Where’s the empirical evidence?

      The PA Superior Court just ruled 3-0 against “Sorna II” unlimited publication of registrants on the Internet. The Court opined that posting an Internet-based registry with unrestricted access went far beyond the scope of informing those with a legitimate need to know and was therefore punitive.

      Article by PARSOL’s Jerry….

      Panel of PA Superior Court justices rule 3-0 that an internet sex offender registry is unconstitutional

      In a ruling handed down by justices Bender, Dubow, and Ford Elliot of the PA Superior Court in the case of Commonwealth v. Lee Andrew Moore, at issue was whether Acts 10 and 29 (SORNA II) of 2018 requiring the Pennsylvania State Police to disseminate information regarding a sex offender on an internet website for public access violates the PA Constitution because it is akin to punishment, it negatively affects the defendant’s reputation, and is excessive regarding the PA General Assembly’s remedial intentions. The case involved Defendant (appellant) Moore, who was sentenced to 5 ½ to 17 years of incarceration, and upon his release from prison would have to register as a sex offender for life.

      The decision of the three-justice panel written by Justice Dubow is that the subchapters in SORNA II requiring the Pennsylvania State Police to publish sex offender information via an internet web page is punitive. Because the dissemination of sex offender registration via the internet is not limited to only people who could benefit from it and is accessible by anyone who has internet access, the website is contradictory with the purpose of protecting a community or a neighborhood. A person outside of the immediate neighborhood or community is not in proximity to the registrant, thus the website information goes beyond the legislative purpose of protecting people who may encounter the offender.

      The Commonwealth has 30 days from the publication of this decision, which was October 23, 2019, to file an appeal.
