This Child Sex Abuse Case Could
Overturn A Utah Law That Allows
Victims To Sue Decades Later

BuzzFeed News, by Zoe Tillman

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 7/17/2017 11:50:01 AM

A Utah woman´s lawsuit against a former federal judge accusing him of raping her more than three decades ago is now at the center of a legal fight over how child sex abuse claims are handled in the state, and whether victims can seek justice for old alleged crimes. Last year, Terry Mitchell sued Richard Roberts — then the chief judge of the federal trial court in Washington, DC — accusing him of taking advantage of her age and repeatedly forcing her to have sex with him in 1981, when he was a 27-year-old prosecutor and she was a 16-year-old witness in one of his cases. Roberts, who has since left the bench, denied the

Comments:
One thing that can´t be brought up is that predators like Roberts, besides using the "power" of his judicial authority to seduce another person, you can bet that this wasn´t his first or last time with an underaged girl. His pension for teens won´t be sated by just one encounter. He needs to be registered as a sex offender.

We have to be careful here. Reach-back laws are, on the surface, troublesome.
In addition, the woman in this case was of the legal age for consent in Utah.
Can a 16 year old girl be more of a woman than a child, and a seductress? Yes. Should Roberts have had a sexual relationship with a witness in one of his cases? No. That was unethical. And stupid. But sometimes men act stupidly, thinking with the wrong head.

Did he sexually assault her? We will never know. Bit his good reptation is gone, forever.

Black judge appointed by Billy Bob claims as his defense that the repeated sex with the 16-year-old crime victim was consensual, and he walks the streets a free man. Something is very, very wrong with our world.

If they are going to change the statute of limitations then it should not include those crimes that have already expired. It should only include crimes committed AFTER the statute change.

If they do include expired crimes then the whole statute of limitations process on anything is pointless.

Imagine being accused and asked to prove your innocence when you don´t even know where you were on that day 30 years ago. It´s like a Hitchcock/Kafka story.

The point of statute of limitations is because of the difficulty of producing evidence and witnesses long after the crime. The accused can´t get a fair trial.

When he said it was "a lapse in judgement" wasn´t that an admission of guilt? He is suppose to be held to a higher standard than those he prosecuted.

Interesting position by the Catholic Church.

Trump Says He Has
‘Complete Power’ to Pardon
New York Times, by Peter Baker    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 7/23/2017 12:58:40     Post Reply
Norfolk, VA - President Trump on Saturday asserted the “complete power to pardon” relatives, aides and possibly even himself in response to investigations into Russia’s meddling in last year’s election, as he came to the defense of Attorney General Jeff Sessions just days after expressing regret about appointing him. (Snip) Presidents have the authority to pardon others for federal crimes, but legal scholars debate whether a president can pardon himself. Mr. Trump’s use of the word “complete” seemed to suggest he did not see a limit to that authority. “While all agree the U.S. President has the complete power to pardon,

On the day the Islamic State overran the Iraqi city of Mosul in 2014, it laid claim to one of the greatest weapons bonanzas ever to fall to a terrorist group: a large metropolis dotted with military bases and garrisons stocked with guns, bombs, rockets and even battle tanks. (Snip) When contained within the heavy shielding of a radiotherapy machine, cobalt-60 is used to kill cancer cells. In terrorists’ hands, it is the core ingredient of a “dirty bomb,” a weapon that could be used to spread radiation and panic. Western intelligence agencies were aware of the cobalt and watched anxiously for three years for signs that the militants might try to use it.

Christie OKs law to give schools

Trenton, NJ - New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie signed legislation Friday requiring the state to give guidance to public schools about policies for transgender students, including blocking the schools from forcing the students from using bathrooms that conflict with their gender identities. The civil rights group Garden State Equality applauded the Republican governor for signing the measure saying that Christie took a stand for LGBT youth. The law was passed by the Democrat-led Legislature after school districts around the state began passing their own rules to allow transgender students to use whichever bathroom they choose.

UK ministers say they are committed to resettling up to 3,000 children and families from the Middle East and North Africa, in addition to the Vulnerable Persons Resettlement Scheme. Local authorities across the country are currently supporting more than 4,000 unaccompanied asylum seeking children, they said. Immigration Minister Brandon Lewis said: “We are committed to fulfilling our commitment under the Dubs scheme as soon as possible and ensuring that children arrive in the UK safely. This is just one aspect of a much wider response. We have committed to resettling 23,000 people directly from regions of conflict

Iran will soon have ICBMs armed
with nukes by way of North Korea.
Team Trump must act now
Fox News, by Harry J. Kazianis    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 7/23/2017 12:11:38     Post Reply
Here’s a prediction by yours truly that you can take to the bank: In just a few years Iran will have intercontinental ballistic missiles, or ICBMs, that can attack targets all over the Middle East, Europe and the United States. And it might all be thanks to the rogue state the Trump administration has labelled the biggest national security threat of our time: North Korea. Oh, and to twist the knife in a little deeper, those missiles could be armed with nuclear weapons—once the Iran deal expires. That is, unless America puts a stop to this threat once and for all. Now wait a second. You’re shocked? You really shouldn’t be.

Why O.J. still has a

The outcome of O.J. Simpson’s parole hearing, broadcast live Thursday, was clear from the very beginning, when chairperson Connie Bisbee addressed him not as Inmate #1027820 but as a star. “I’m a little nervous, so bear with me,” she said. It was an odd ceding of power: After all, there’s no law requiring televised parole hearings. But Simpson doesn’t just occupy a singular nexus between celebrity and the criminal justice system; there’s never been a figure like him in American life. Bisbee wasn’t alone in being starstruck. Her colleague, parole board member Adam Engel, wore an NFL tie. When Bisbee mistakenly declared

Minneapolis police chief Janee Harteau has resigned at the request of the city’s mayor, who said she and the community had lost confidence in her following the fatal police shooting of an unarmed Australian woman. The death of Sydney native Justine Damond, 40, from a single gunshot wound to the abdomen fired through the open window of a police patrol car, has outraged her family members and the Australian public. Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has called it “shocking” and “inexplicable”.

In what some lawmakers are calling a "morally repugnant" incident and a "humanitarian nightmare," a single mother of four who has been living in the United States for 24 years is now seeking refuge in a New Haven, Connecticut church in an attempt to avoid deportation. Nury Chavarria, a Guatemala native, and her four children must wait as her legal team attempts to secure some kind of relief for her. Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy and Senators Richard Blumenthal and Chris Murphy, all Democrats, have rallied around her in support, along with community activists and volunteers.

Vladimir Putin has said he could stay on as President of Russia for at least another six years. His term in office ends with the presidential election in March 2018 but he is widely expected to seek re-election and win another six-year term. Mr Putin has been President of Russia since 2000, apart from a stint as Prime Minister between 2008 and 2012. He was speaking during a three-hour question and answer session with Russian children at a school in the Black Sea city of Sochi, in which he answered a series of light-hearted questions. Responding to a question about his plans for when he leaves office, he smiled and said:

Congress strikes deal to stiffen Russia
sanctions; Trump questions boost bill

Congress has reached a final deal on new Russia sanctions legislation, leaders announced Saturday, clearing the path for final approval of legislation that would codify penalties imposed by the Obama administration and would require President Trump to seek approval from Capitol Hill should he want to lift the sanctions. (Snip) All sides said they expect massive bipartisan support in the coming days for the legislation, giving Congress a solid victory in a year otherwise devoid of major accomplishments. This one, however, strikes at Mr. Trump, which helps explain why Democrats are eager to sign on.

Jeb Bush slammed Republicans Saturday for giving President Trump a free pass on Russia — while blasting President Obama for the same thing. “If your opponent does things that … your head explodes on … then when your guy does the same thing, have the same passion to be critical,” the former Florida governor fumed at Ozy Fest, a Central Park festival hosted by the digital news magazine Ozy.

While there are doubtless celebrations in Moscow, the news that Sen. John McCain has irreversible brain cancer hit me harder than any such news since I sat in a seventh-grade classroom and our science teacher ran down the hall shouting, “The president’s been shot.” That president, JFK, was a war hero, too, but not one of McCain’s stature. Shot down over North Vietnam, crippled by wounds and tortured, McCain refused early release and remained in his Hanoi prison, suffering for years beside his comrades. Returning home at last, on crutches, he dedicated himself to serving the people of Arizona and the

Authorities in Florida say that a group of teenagers recorded the drowning of a disabled man last week — and did nothing to help as they made fun of his struggles. Jamel Dunn, 32, of Cocoa, drowned in a retention pond July 9. His body was recovered July 14, two days after his fiancee reported him missing. Late last week, a friend of Dunn´s family came across the video on social media and forwarded it to authorities in Brevard County. In the video, which was published by the Florida Today newspaper Thursday, the teens can be heard laughing at Dunn

On June 28th, President Trump convened a roundtable at the White House that included victims of crimes committed by undocumented immigrants. The event was part of the Administration’s push to pass several new immigration bills designed to, in Trump’s words, “close the dangerous loopholes exploited by criminals, gang members, drug dealers, killers, terrorists.” A regular theme of the Trump Administration’s messaging on immigration has been to present undocumented “bad hombres” as an immediate threat to the safety and cohesion of the American family unit. But some of Trump’s immigration policies, in themselves, have endangered families across America. The stories below,

For the last 15 years, I have been making good educational use of Lennon´s famous song "Imagine." In one of my classes, analyzing the song helps Japanese students think critically about song lyrics. The song is very well known and popular in Japan, in part because Lennon´s wife was Japanese. Yoko Ono´s leftist beliefs also left their mark on the content of the song, a fact that will probably soon receive official recognition by the National Music Publishers Association. The song´s doubtful assumptions and internal contradictions make it an instructive instance of the sloppy, shallow thinking we often find in the
