The Rule of Law and the Impact on Fighting Sexual Exploitation
This is a controversial show where we examine the unintended consequences of creating legislation and enforcing the “Rule of Law” when combating crimes of sexual exploitation. This show is not meant to have a political focus, but rather to examine unintended consequences of the law.
Recently, media giants announced that Facebook had provided the Trump campaign with personal data on their users prior to the election which started a movement to shutdown Facebook. The Washington Post responded by pointing out that ALL candidates purchase this data and most social media marketers track user data and sell it. This is called “marketing research.” Additionally, no one seems to notice that Facebook does not charge a fee to use their site. They make their money by collecting users every search, every click, and location, and then selling this information to millions of companies, including politicians. This is called artificial intelligence (AI).
This week we will examine the issue of how creating legislation to punish websites such as Backpage and Facebook may have unintended consequences for law enforcement. We will explore how new legislation, currently approved by the US Congress and winding its way through the Senate, could have far reaching effects by possibly creating massive Class Action Suits and resulting in the creation of road blocks for law enforcement whereby victims will receive a very small amount of compensation. We will also examine the intent of the new legislation and the good parts of it, as well as considering possible fall out that is not being addressed.
Additionally, we will look at cases where laws were put into effect, such as California SB1322 that has crippled law enforcement’s ability to assist and protect minor victims. And, we will look at the effects of California Proposition 57 that was passed and approved by voters, but is so undefined that it could end up releasing over 10,000 convicted felony sex offenders early from prison and right back into the communities where the victims testified and believably received justice.
The purpose of this show is to encourage all of us to consider the possible consequences of creating legislation and to think through the entire process in order to truly make a difference and, most importantly, enforce the rule of law that is on the books.
