.. there is no way around this .

.. the more that I think about this , the more I come closer to throwing up . I have admired this man , both what he has achieved and his unique brand of humor , most of my life . What he has done of over a 5 – to 6 – decade career is enormous and remarkable . Now this admission of cruelty and barbarity …

.. now , that respect and admiration for this fellow is gone ..

.. how ? why ? simple . Bill Cosby did not just do this once , I will guestimate . He did it more than once . The legal statute of limitations has likely run out on his actions , without a doubt . But , not the judgement of millions of once adoring fans [both professional and entertainment] in the Court of Public Opinion . In those cases , the judgements are still coming ..

.. and a once – great career has now come to an effective end …

… What Grotesque Inhumanity ! [Boko Haram ‘ s actions] ..

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,May 12th,2014

.. Boko Haram is not committing jihad .

.. they are committing kidnapping , rape , and murder , especially on a mass scale ..

.. A few days ago , the terrorists from Boko Haram invaded the grounds of a Government secondary school . This one is more like a school – in – residence , where the young ladies lived in dormitories . This is the facility that these scumbags attacked and sacked …

.. [h/t — PamelaGeller]..

.. [link] to the news report …

These young girls are considered war booty under Islam. This is consistent with Islamic teaching and with what Muhammad, “the perfect model,” did with the spoils of jihadi war.

The Qur’an sanction of sex slavery:

If you fear that you will not act justly towards the orphans, marry such women as seem good to you, two, three, four; but if you fear you will not be equitable, then only one, or what your right hands own; so it is likelier you will not be partial. (Qur’an 4:3)

Not only is rape and sex slavery permitted, it is righteous.

Nigeria: ‘Abducted Girls Moved Abroad’ All Africa, [1] April 28, 2014 (thanks to JWG)

Boko Haram takes schoolgirls to Chad, Cameroon; marries them off on N2,000 bride price each.

Most of the 234 Borno schoolgirls in Boko Haram captivity have been ferried abroad to Chad and Cameroon after they were married off to sect members on N2,000 bride price each, an elder told Daily Trust yesterday.

The female students were taken from their hostels at the Government Girls Secondary School Chibok on the night of April 14.

About 40 had escaped in the days after the incident, but parents and school authorities said at least 234 of them were yet to be found.

Dr. Pogu Chibok, who is the leader of the Chibok Elders Forum, told Daily Trust yesterday that latest information available to them indicates that most of the girls have been taken to the neighboring Cameroon and Chad by their captors.

He said before they were ferried in canoes across the Lake Chad, a wedding ceremony was conducted at a town on the border with Cameroon where they were married off to Boko Haram militants.

He said N2,000 was paid as bride price on each of the girls to the specific Boko Haram members who took them from their school and who had assumed “ownership” of the students.

“They ferried them in canoes to Cameroon and Chad republic after they were wedded off to Boko Haram members who bidded (sic) and paid N2,000 each as dowries on their heads,” Bitrus said.

“The dowry was paid to their captors, the very people who abducted them from their school. One of them who married one of the girls took her to a border town close to Cameroon where villagers saw her.”

Following their abduction, the schoolgirls were thought to be first taken to the Boko Haram camps in the notorious Sambisa Forest. Reports later said villagers had seen the girls being conveyed in trucks to other locations.

Bitrus said yesterday: “So many sources have informed us that the girls have been taken to Cameroon. Many villagers said they saw the girls being transported in trucks and then in canoes.

“On Sunday they were taken to Dikwa area where they (Boko Haram) have a camp there. From there they took them to Marte, then Monguno before they were finally ferried in canoes. It was yesterday we got this latest report of them being married off to the insurgents by their captors.”

He said sources in Cameroon told them that most of the girls were now being held at “an area where the Boko Haram operates in Cameroon.”

‘Crying day and night’

On whether military authorities were informed about the movements of the girls, Bitrus said: “The military was alerted on Tuesday about two weeks ago when some villagers saw many of the girls being transported in trucks, some with even their school uniforms.

The villagers tried calling the senator representing the zone but they couldn’t get him so they went to Bama barracks where they reported the matter.

“At the Bama barracks they were told that they must put it in writing, that that is the military tradition. At that time if the military had intervened they would have stopped them from reaching their destination.

“And the fact that for nearly two weeks we have been talking about this and nothing is being done, then there are questions we have to ask. Nobody did anything.”

.. LEC again — how can these people pull off and pervert such inhumanity towards their fellow man ? My God , these kids are young schoolgirls , more than likely middle – school age . And they are being ransomed off as war booty to be a bride ??

… Is California this Nutty ?!?! …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,March 18th,2014

.. unbelievably , yes …

.. I am no expert on sex and relationships , god knows … I am as shy and as private as it gets , and I am a social klutz … but this proposal in California is ridiculous …

.. most people , including many in relationships and marriages engage in making whoopie (sex) without saying a word … now , the legislature is proposing to say that , up front , that sex without affirmative verbal consent is automatically sexual assault ? Are they going crazy ?

.. do they have something better to do ….

.. [h/t — LegalInsurrection]..

.. [link] to the blog post ..

.. from the posting …

Since most couples have engaged in sex without “verbal” consent, supporters of the bill are effectively redefining most people, and most happily-married couples, as rapists. By demanding verbal discussion before sex, they are also meddling in people’s sex lives in a prurient fashion.  (Whether consent is explicit is often inversely related to whether sex is really welcome, with grudgingly consensual acts often being preceded by more explicit discussion and haggling than acts that are truly welcomed and enjoyed, as I explain here).

Requiring people to have verbal discussions before sex violates their privacy rights, under the logic of Supreme Court decisions such as Lawrence v. Texas (2003), which struck down Texas’s sodomy law, and federal appeals court decisions like Wilson v. Taylor (1984), which ruled that dating relationships are protected against unwarranted meddling by the Constitutional freedom of intimate association.

It also serves no legitimate purpose, since even supporters of the bill, like Tara Culp-Ressler have on other occasions admitted that sexual violence is not the result of mixed signals: studies show that people who commit sexual violence are almost always aware that what they are doing is against the will of their victims, rather than the assault being the product of “blurred” communications.

Defining sex as rape merely because there was no verbal discussion in advance trivializes rape and brands innocent people as rapists (including some people who themselves have been sexually victimized in the past).

Disturbingly, it’s not just sex they want to regulate, but also “sexual activity” in general. The bill may require affirmative consent before multiple steps in the process of foreplay that leads to sex, even between couples who have engaged in the same pattern of foreplay before on countless occasions.

The bill states:

“’Affirmative consent’ is a freely and affirmatively communicated willingness to participate in particular sexual activity or behavior, expressed either by words or clear, unambiguous actions. . . The existence of a dating relationship between the persons involved, or the fact of a past sexual relationship, shall not provide the basis for an assumption of consent.”

This disregards common sense, since what people intend or consent to is often illustrated by the history or nature of their relationship, such as when courts determine the intent of the parties to a contract by looking at the past course of dealings between the parties.

In addition to endangering privacy rights, SB 967 also contains provisions that could undermine students’ due process rights, such as mandating a low standard of proof for discipline, and encouraging anonymous allegations, as I explained in a letter published last month in the Sacramento Bee. The bill’s requirements apply not just to public colleges, but also to certain private colleges.

On February 25, the University of California system appears to have essentially adopted most of the requirements of SB 967, in a new policy defining “sexual assault” and “sexual violence,” to include some conduct that is not violent at all.

What concerns me most is that the policy defines “sexual assault” to require “unambiguous” “affirmative” consent prior not just to penetration (which is not always unreasonable if consent is defined to include non-verbal cues as well as verbal responses), but also “physical sexual activity” in general.

Effectively, this might ban foreplay as it commonly occurs among married and unmarried couples alike, as I explain in more detail at this link.

Yet, the University of California policy says:

“Sexual Assault occurs when physical sexual activity is engaged without the consent of the other person or when the other person is unable to consent to the activity. . . .Consent is informed. Consent is an affirmative, unambiguous, and conscious decision by each participant to engage in mutually agreed-upon sexual activity. . .Consent means positive cooperation in the act or expression of intent to engage in the act . . . Consent to some form of sexual activity does not imply consent to other forms of sexual activity. Consent to sexual activity on one occasion is not consent to engage in sexual activity on another occasion. A current or previous dating or sexual relationship, by itself, is not sufficient to constitute consent. . .Consent must be ongoing throughout a sexual encounter.”

Although this language is vague (at one point, it allows consent to be based on “positive cooperation,” which might extend beyond consent in advance), it clearly defines some sex and sexual activity as sexual assault on campus, even if it would be perfectly legal off campus (it does so even more clearly than SB 967 does).

It does that even though college students are largely adults who have the right to vote, get married, and serve in the military. For example, students have First Amendment rights that are largely “coextensive” with their rights in society generally, as the Supreme Court has indicated in decisions such as Papish v. University of Missouri Curators, Healy v. James, and Rosenberger v. University of Virginia. (Disclosure: I used to practice education law for a living.).

The assumption seems to be that California’s general definition of sexual assault, which applies off campus, is too narrow. But this assumption is dubious, and in a few rare situations existing law is already too broad, as I discuss here.

… Ariel Castro , Welcome to “Hell” …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,August 1st,2013

.. Castro is the name of the sub – human form of excrement who imprisoned , raped , tortured , and … three young women for 10 years or more on the near West Side of Cleveland , which ended this spring .

.. At the least , Castro reached a plea bargain . Doing this spares him the death penalty , which he so richly deserves . However , it does spare these young women a great deal of anguish and heartache , as they will not be forced to relive their ordeal on the witness stand . And , yea , I wish the guy could still get the death penalty .

.. This guy is pond scum . The worst , the lowest of the low , the most disgusting form of sub – human excrement who has ever walked the earth . I never thought that anyone could have surpassed scum such as Charles Manson , but Ariel Castro has sure as hell done that .

.. Prison is its own form of Hell . And Castro is about to find out that he will never , ever , ever walk the earth a free man ever again . Hopefully , a compassionate prison warden will be smart enough to put him into the general population . Boy , would that be a “fortunate move.”

.. Prisons have their own code of “justice.” Among the lowest of the low are rapists and child molesters . The guys who take out the scum are “heroes” among the cons , and even among the prison staff . Maybe Castro may well get prison “justice.” He has it coming , god knows .

… At last , these Women can be at Peace …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,July 26th,2013

.. Amanda Berry . Gina DeJesus . Michelle Knight . these young women have been through what can only be described as the depths of unspeakable hell . Being taken captive is bad enough . Being held captive for 10 years , or more , continual rape , sexual assault , and even murder ? My God , what kind of subhuman creature could perpetrate such a thing ?

.. Angel Castro , that is who . He took these young ladies , and altered their lives , forever . He took them prisoner , tortured them , raped them , assaulted them , and took them on a hellish journey . How could he do such a thing ? Yet , he did .

.. Their families never gave up hope that they were alive . They pampleted their neighbourhoods . They marched . They garnered as much publicity as they humanly could . Yet , nothing . Then , all of a sudden . Bang .

.. All of a sudden , with some help from local people on the west side of Cleveland , these women (now adults) regained their freedom . Yet , it was not just the three of them . It was now 4 . The rapist Castro had fathered a child with Ms. Berry , who is now about 6 or 7 years old .

.. Thankfully , the people of my home community have been extraordinary generous . Much money has been donated towards the futures of all three young women , and the young child . However , the money can only help make up for part of their suffering . The news from the justice system today hopefully can help go a very long way towards giving them a sense of peace of mind that they so richly deserve .

.. Angel Castro will never see the outside of a prison , ever again . He reached a plea bargain , that , takes the possible death penalty off of the table . I am not totally thrilled with the plea bargain , but I do understand it . More important is the peace of mind of the 3 (now 4) victims , so that they can begin the process of going on with their lives .

.. I pray that Amanda , Michelle , Gina , and Amanda ‘ s little girl can find the peace that they so richly deserve . And that they can find a future that is of their choice .

… When will She Get It ??!? …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,July 9th,2013

… the objective is #jailkate .

from the other mccain …

… yeah , yet again …

.. There has been further Facebook ranting by Kaitlyn Hunt’s mother Kelley Hunt Smith this past week that I haven’t had the stomach to transcribe, but part of which involves her reiteration of some of her favorite themes: She feels her daughter is being “singled out” for prosecution; this prosecution is wrong because it is a consenting “relationship,” because the girls are relatively close in age, and because the girls went to school together. At one point in her long rant, KHS wrote:

“I will continue to fight for Kate, and to change the laws to actually protect teenagers from being prosecuted as felons for doing what 99.9% of teenagers are doing all over the world.”

Uh … “99.9% percent”? Are 99.9% of teenagers having sex?

No, actually not. According to one national study, “27% of youth ages 14-17 were sexually active during the survey year.” And that data was cited in a 2005 U.S. Department of Justice study about reported cases of statutory rape, which K.J. Copp called to my attention.

The study is quite relevant because it demonstrates that Kaitlyn Hunt (the 18-year-old Florida girl charged with two felony counts for having sex with a 14-year-old) is not being “singled out.” In fact, laying aside the same-sex nature of her case, it’s actually typical.

Seventy-six percent (76%) of female victims of statutory rape are ages 13-15, with 14 being the most common victim age (31%) in the cases studied by the Justice Department. And for 14-year-old victims, offenders were most commonly (43%) ages 18-20. In reported cases of statutory rape with a female victim age 14, only 20% of offenders were 25 or older. The age difference between Kaitlyn Hunt and her victim (44 months) was typical: 50% of statutory rape cases with 14-year-old victims involved a perpetrator no more than 5 years older.

Was Kaitlyn Hunt’s “relationship” with the 14-year-old “singled out”? Was this case unusual because it involved two high school students? No, not at all: Twenty-nine percent (29%) of the statutory rape cases studied by the Justice Department classified the relationship between offender and victim as “boyfriend or girlfriend” and another 62 percent were classified as “acquaintances.” Of cases involving 14-year-old victims, as we have seen, 43% of offenders were ages 18-20 and another 16% were 17 or younger; ergo, many of the offenders were also high school-age teenagers. It is estimated that more than 15,000 statutory rape cases are reported to U.S. law enforcement agencies annually, so the prosecution of Kaitlyn Hunt isn’t really unusual in any way.

.. Florida law doesn’t call the crime of which Kaitlyn Hunt is accused “statutory rape,” however. Instead, it’s “lewd and lascivious battery on a child,” but this is only a difference in legal nomenclature . In other words , there is not much of a difference . Kaitlyn Hunt is a sexual offender , a sex criminal , and a statutory rapist .

..What is unusual about the Kaitlyn Hunt case is that her parents made such a big deal out of it, and managed to bamboozle more than 300,000 people into signing a petition that dishonestly portrayed Kaitlyn Hunt as a heroic martyr for gay rights, which she isn’t.

.. However, isn’t it possible that one reason teenage sex is less common than she imagines — 27% rather than “99.9%” — is because age-of-consent laws make it a crime to have sex with younger teens ?

And while 15,000 statutory rape prosecutions annually is a statistic indicating that such cases aren’t exactly rare, more cases would probably be prosecuted if not for the fact that most of the time, all the parent of a minor has to do is say, “Leave my daughter alone, you creep,” and that is enough to end the relationship.

Because it turns out there’s a reason they call it “jailbait,” after all .

… better yet , #jailbaitKate …

… Who is Sicker ? …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,July 3rd,2013

.. the Russian gay couple , who conceived their child through a surrogate , and then molested the child , repeatedly , over an 8 year time period ?

.. or , better (or worse) yet , an Australian broadcaster , who did a feature on the two in 2010 . She received awards for her work . But did not get any awards for never getting to the truth about the child . Now , we know what happened .

.. courtesy of the Sydney Morning Herald (Australia) ..

Standing before an American court convicted of the most heinous of child sex  crimes, the double lives of Australian citizen Mark J. Newton and his long-term  boyfriend Peter Truong were laid bare.

‘‘Being a father was an honour and a privilege that amounted to the best six  years of my life,’’ the American-born Newton, 42, told the court.

Moments later Newton was sentenced to 40 years in prison for sexually abusing  the boy he and Truong, 36 from Queensland, had ‘‘adopted’’ after paying a  Russian woman $8000 to be their surrogate in 2005.

Police believe the pair had adopted the boy ‘‘for the sole purpose of  exploitation’’. The abuse began just days after his birth and over six years the  couple travelled the world, offering him up for sex with at least eight men,  recording the abuse and uploading the footage to an international syndicate  known as the Boy Lovers Network.

  </ifra

‘‘Personally .. I think this is probably the worst [paedophile] rings … if  not the worst ring I’ve ever heard of,’’ investigator Brian Bone of the US  Postal Inspection Service told reporters outside the US federal court room in  Indiana.

US District Judge Sarah Evans Barker said the pair deserved a harsher  punishment but were tried at district court level to avoid subjecting a jury to  the repulsive images that had been produced.

‘‘What can be said? What can be done to erase some of the horror of this?’’ Judge Barker said in handing down her sentence.

Truong has also pleaded guilty and will be sentenced at a later  date.

— where they had the interview —

Newton and Truong gave an interview to a local ABC reporter in Far North  Queensland in 2010 on their battle to have a child as a gay couple. Their search  started in 2002 in the US, where they both were working, and when they did not  have any success Truong travelled to Russia and found a woman who they ‘‘clicked  with personality-wise’’. She was paid $8000 and, as per their agreement, granted  the couple sole custody of the boy, handing him over five days after his birth  in 2005.

The family planned to live in Cairns but that was delayed because Australian  authorities initially refused to grant the child a visa. That took 2 years and  upon their eventual arrival in Australia they said Customs quizzed them for  hours. Police were also sent to the family’s house in Cairns to check up on the  pair.

In the radio interview, 20 months before their arrest, Newton was asked if he  felt the extra attention was because authorities suspected there was ‘‘something  dodgy … something paedophlic going on here?’’

‘‘Absolutely, absolutely, I’m sure that was completely the concern,’’ Newton  replied.

Evidence before the court revealed the abuse began before the couple returned  to Australia. One video is said to show Newton performing a sex act on the boy  when he was less than two weeks old.

Judge Barker said the pair brainwashed the child to believe the sexual abuse  was normal. Newton was also said to have trained the boy to deny any  inappropriate behaviour if he was ever questioned by authorities.

Newton and Truong came to the attention of police in August 2011 after their  connections to three men arrested over the possession of child exploitation  material came to light. The couple had visited the three men in the US, New  Zealand and Germany with their son.

While the couple were visiting family in the US, Queensland police searched  their Cairns home and found enough evidence to alert their US counterparts who  raided their Los Angeles base and took the boy into custody.

Newton and Truong claimed they were being targeted because they were  homosexual. However after his arrest in February 2011, Truong gave investigators  the password to the computer hard drives police had seized. It detailed the  years of abuse.

The boy remains in the care of extended family in the US.
