Way to go American! Your so-called “justice” system has “killed” yet another young American!
Yes – yet another young American life needlessly ended. This tragic ending to this young man’s life was by his own hand. He choose death over a lifetime on the sex offender registry. When death is preferable to being alive there is a problem. The threat – NO – the reality that being labelled a sex offender essentially a “social death” in that you are now an untouchable in the society. Unwelcome to work, live among, and socialize with society at large. Thrown away and cast aside to live under a bridge or not even good enough for that!
This man’s life should not be lost in vain but should shine a light on the tragic reality that the sex offender registry is a cruel and unusual punishment so unimaginably horrible that people would rather die than be forced to endure it.
In some less advanced “primitive” societies you were driven out or stoned to death as a punishment but here in the USA you are doomed to a social death by being publicly shammed on a registry. Which is worse and why should anyone in 2018 America have to make such a choice!?! The registry doesn’t keep anyone safer and only provides law enforcement and soulless politicians a tool to manipulate the public – here is an all to frequent result. Feel safer now?
How many more lives are Americans going to allow to be lost because of this useless, abuse, and barbaric listings. When we they learn the lesson – when it is someone they know perhaps…someone like this young actor America watched growing up – perhaps could make a change!
