The US Supreme Court: Reform the possession of Child Pornography Laws

    1. Petition by

      M Garrett


People in the US are being labeled and harsly punished for unintentionally encountering child pornography, via means of downloading from peer to peer networks, or encountering it on a website. While i do agree child abuse laws and support law enforcement's fight to punish those who willfully abuse children and gratify themselves on such content, folks are in danger of facing a mandatory minimum sentence of 5 years in a federal prison, being an entry in the national sex offender registry, facing massive fines that are not limited civil suits by money hungry attorneys exploiting the very children who have been abused. I believe not all who have been accused of such crimes are actually guilty of seeking images and video of children, but rather the victims of faulty P2P software application deisgns, and adult web sites that don't properly filter the content posted. Any person out there can fall victim to the label of sex offender by unintentionally viewing such content. And suffer life altering consequences.Therefore I am petitioning the US Supreme Court to overhaul consequences of encountering such material.

Reform The Possession of Child Pornography Laws

      Unfortunately, the porn industry contributes to the brutalization of men with sadistic torture porn, rape porn on. Child porns are a cruel crime! And not enough with this women hating unprotected sex is always shown, the porn industry still contributes to the spread of sexually transmitted diseases and AIDS. Infections of porn starst are always covered up, but there are cases where a male porn actor has infected hundreds of colleagues with AIDS. In addition, 90% of all porn is sadistic, misogynistic, the porn actresses are all very young, disgusting practices such as mass rape, BDSM, simultaneous multiple penetration of vagina, anus and mouth, which may be associated with serious injuries, are portrayed as normal. Vomiting, pleading, begging and crying of porn actresses are portrayed as normal. This is pure women hatred and should be banned worldwide! Many men want sex not in this kind, even not women! Because if men are wanted oral sex and anal sex all the time they should even times swallow their own sperm and getting tooth damage and injuries in the neck area and can make anal sex with huge dildos and vibrators and then they know what avoid injury, and bleeding of the intestines until incontinence means. Every normal man will then take considerate of a woman and those which want cruel and dangerous practices belong to jail! This misogynist pornography must be banned worldwide anywhere!!!!!

      The punishment for child pornography is way to severe. Politicians have just continued to use sex offenders as scape goats in order to get votes for being "tough on crime." The suffering that people convicted of these crimes go through along with their families who through the registry are also branded, shamed, afraid and limited. This has to stop. Sex offenders are just todays version of every other targeted group human civilization has decided to vilify. Its the modern witch hunt, its barbaric, not based in evidence and developed as a tool for politicians to gain popularity.
