I don’t even know what to say to this one. Just when you think California can’t get any more depraved, they surprise you. Governor Moonbeam has just decriminalized prostitution for minors in his state. He claims it is meant to make life after human trafficking easier for those forced into it. But the consequences of this move make pedophilia far more acceptable there. Yes, adults are still guilty of a crime… maybe. Since minors are not, it becomes a gray area. The Islamists in California, the Marxists and NAMBLA must be rejoicing over this.
I guess I should not be surprised from a state that wants to ban gender identity and allows polygamy, bestiality, etc. They say this law will protect minors from the stigma of sex-trafficking – what it really does is it makes it much easier to grow and conduct the business of sex-trafficking children. It promotes it for God’s sake. Along with this ruling, Jerry Brown is taking away state benefits for those who ARE victims of the sex industry. It’s as if he’s promoting white slavery for children.
This is absolutely astounding. The liberal numbnuts who run the State of California just decriminalized child prostitution. There is no misinterpretation of what they’ve done here. It is no longer illegal for anyone under the age of 18 to engage in prostitution or to solicit money for sex. Like I said, kids in California are now able to legally work as prostitutes.
CBS Sacramento reports that space cadet Governor Jerry Brown signed SB1322 into law on Tuesday. Among other things, this bill exempts minors from the current California prostitution laws. In other words, a person under the age of 18 can no longer be arrested for violating prostitution laws that apply to adults.
I was thinking that maybe the news was reporting this wrong or perhaps they were leaving some stuff out that makes this sound less terrible than it is, but I read the actual wording of the bill and this is what is says:
Existing law makes it a crime to solicit or engage in any act of prostitution. Existing law makes it a crime to loiter in any public place with the intent to commit prostitution. This bill would make the above provisions inapplicable to a child under 18 years of age who is alleged to have engaged in conduct that would, if committed by an adult, violate the above provisions.
Brown and others will argue that they didn’t legalize prostitution for minors… they decriminalized it. They are splitting hairs here. Any attorney worth his salt will have a field day in court with this for his clients. Even a John or pimp will come into court claiming that since it is not illegal for a minor to commit prostitution, they cannot be held culpable for their actions. You watch… it’s coming.
I don’t know what these liberals were thinking. Evidently they thought this would somehow protect children. It does the opposite… it will make prostitution and the exploitation of children explode in that state. If Brown was looking to create more jobs and tourism in his state, this will do it. But I doubt they will like the results. This is hardcore Progressivism and it is insane.
