But a sentence of 8-25 years in prison is not punishment enough for a first-offender convicted of nonviolent and victimless and mala prohibita crimes that are legal acts or possibly misdemeanors (?) in dozens of other nations, including European Countries. Nor is it protection enough for all the boys and girls of Michigan and the United States, including not only biological men under the legal age of consent such as her “victim’ but also young women under statutory age and prepubertal children of both sexes.
Given the decision of the Supreme Court of Michigan not to hear her final appeal, she’ll be enslaved for 8-years, at least, and perhaps longer. But if she doesn’t die in prison she’ll still be punished until the day she dies. When she’s released from prison after “only” 8 or 10 or 12 years(?), she’ll be subjected to years of quasi-totalitarian “supervision,” probably including “sex-offender treatment,” restrictions on her freedom and intrusions into her private life that not even dystopian novelists like Orwell and Kafka could have imagined and prophesized decades ago, most of which don’t apply to violent criminals on probation who’ve never been convicted of a sexual offense, and registration for life as a uniquely vile and execrable and dangerous criminal -her name, mug-shot, and address on the internet for all to see in Michigan’s and national sex-offender registries- unlike myriads of brutes and savages who’ve committed many if not dozens and scores of violent and other mala in se felonies but who’ve never been convicted of a sexual offense albeit most of them have raped and gang-raped men in prisons and jails and/or women and adolescent girls in the free world.
But not even all this is enough to punish Abigail and similar “convicted sex offenders,” and to protect all the children of Michigan and the United States (if allowed to move to or visits other states) from this uniquely deviant and dangerous criminal. And also adults, apparently. And thus her draconian and Orwellian sentence also includes a life-sentence of electronic parole monitoring with an ankle-tether/”bracelet” that she can never remove.
To CSA victimologists and the ruling-elites and governing-classes they’ve successfully indoctrinated, most balefully and crucially those who enact and impose the laws and sentences and punishments (politicians, police, prosecutors, judges, etc.), and a media that controls the zeitgeist and public opinion, and tens of millions of people they’ve brainwashed, Abigail is viewed as such a danger to children -from infants in their cradles to teenage criminals one day short of their 16th or 18th birthdays- that she must wear this tether or “bracelet,” as cumbersome as it’s conspicuous, 24-hours a day, in public and private: at work and play and leisure, when shopping, dining, walking the streets, sitting in a park, reading in a library, etc., and at home, waking and sleeping, having sex with a lover or spouse (assuming her parole agent permits this?), bathing, showering, etc.(Apparently, the device is waterproof so the tethered can’t be shocked when bathing or swimming.)
Shortly before her release from prison after 8 or 10 or 12 years, I assume the guards will strip her naked for the last time and then attach the tether to her bare ankle, probably with the assistance and under the supervision of a parole officer and/or SVU detective, before she dresses in her own clothes and leaves the prison with family and/or friends.
She and myriads of other people whose one and only crime in life was having a liaison or tryst with a young man or women under statutory age can never remove this tether/ “bracelet.” Imagine the mortification, the embarrassment, the daily interaction with and responses and actions of other people for the rest of their lives or at least 20-30 years: e.g, for a woman at the beach, or a pool or gym or health club, or wearing shorts on warm days, or a dress or skirt at church or a wedding or party or restaurant, and so forth. The new-age scarlet letter.
And envision what if must be like having sex, for both the men and women who are tethered and their partners, lovers or spouses, whose ankles and feet and calves are bruised and even cut by the plastic during coitus or when lying in bed and sleeping, The constant discomfort, the itching, and also blisters, chafing, and rashes from a devise that must be worn 24-hours a day under all conditions. I assume the tether can be removed so cuts and rashes and blisters can be treated by a doctor, but only with the permission of and in the presence of a parole-officer and/or SVU detective.
If she lives to be 88 or 94 or 102, senile, blind or half-blind, confined to a wheelchair, living in a nursing home, or immobile and supine in a hospital bed, dying of cancer or simply old-age, even if unconscious, she must wear this tether until she dies and its removed by the authorities. And so, too, with her mugshot, name, and address on the internet in Michigan’s and national sex offender registries.. Only then will all the children of Michigan and all of America and the entire world be safe from this monster and degenerate.
So her life after prison -whether she dies in her 70s or 80s or 90s- will be worse in some ways than her life in prison. At least in prison she isn’t forced to wear an ankle-tether 24 hours a day and she can’t she receive hate-mail, death threats, and obscene lust-letters with photos of male genitalia -the fate of many women on the public registry. And she can’t be raped and doesn’t have to worry about being raped because, as of now, male guards are not allowed in the housing units because of a scandal and lawsuit by hundreds of women who were raped by male guards at another prison that was closed shortly thereafter. And she can’t be murdered, tortured, or assaulted non-sexually, brutally, viciously, and sadistically, by male criminals, and doesn’t have to worry about same until she’s released from prison.
And, moreover, the second stage of her draconian/Orwellian sentence -if she’s released from prison after 8-years and if she dies in her 70s or 80s or even 90s or hundreds- will be 3 or 4 or even 5 or 6 times longer
All this for a women who has never committed a violent or other malum in se crime in her life and never will and is not a “threat to society” or to anyone nor even a “danger” to “re-offend” by having sex with another young man under statutory age -an infinitely remote possibility that no sane person would obsess over during the day or lose any sleep over at night. In reality as opposed to fantasy, not a single person in the state of Michigan, child and adult, has been or will be any safer because of the enslavement of Abigail Simon for at least 8-years followed by decades of quasi-totalitarian persecution. No violent or other serious crime has been or will be prevented or deterred by her hideously draconian/Orwellian life-sentence. In respect to “protecting the public” and children and deterring and preventing violent and other serious criminality, her grotesque sentence is wholly gratuitous, “cruel and unusual” in the sense of being not only cruel but also totally unnecessary.
She’s enslaved, broken, degraded, immiserated, her life ruined, doomed until she dies, forever a victim of mass psychosis, hysteria, ignorance, fanaticism, “moral panic,” ideology, politics, and the resultant oppression, cruelty, iniquity,, and persecution. And for what? For nothing -for no exigent, rational, imperative, and justifiable reason whatsoever- for those of us who are sane and just and honest and realistic.
To call all of this insane is an understatement. It’s beyond insanity!
