The Dominican Republic is in South America? Who knew?

Also, from TFA:

Magistrate Steven Gold released the alleged pervert on $250,000 bail and ordered him to steer clear of locations where children congregate, like toys stores, schoolyards, fast food restaurants and the children's section of a library.

Oh, New York Daily News, what would we do without you?

It is illegal for U.S. citizens to have sex with someone under the age of 16 or a prostitute under the age of 18 anywhere in the world.

Not that I support the sex slave trade but how exactly to you prosecute this and still give the defendant all his 6th Amendment protections? Is it treated like a crime committed at sea or what? Are they going to force witnesses to come form the Dominican Republic? His the defendant on the hook for getting any of his own witnesses into the country?

In a strict legal sense the law is illegal, but might makes right and the US can bully pretty much any country that tries to object.

Asked anyone who ever made money overseas, spent it there, and still had to pay US taxes on it by virtue of being eligible to hold a US passport.

The theory is actually fairly widely applied, and has at least as much validity as the theory under which we've prosecuted war criminals and the like -- at least as a US citizen you get representation in the construction of such laws, as opposed to simply having them enforced against you unilaterally.

Because as a US citizen, you're bound to a certain extent by US laws even when you're in another country. If you don't like it, there's a formal process to renounced your citizenship.

Yes , but the Constitution also says something about holding the trial in the district/state in which the crime occurred. To not do so would make it harder on the defendant to present witnesses and gather evidence on his behalf.

The particular aspect that's frightening is that if an American does something that's legal in the country he's in, but it's illegal to do on American soil... apparently that person can be prosecuted for it in the US.

This is something Iran and Saudi Arabia does.

In my opinion, laws should be bound to the location's governing body specifying what and what is not legal. Laws shouldn't be bound to the nationality of the person.

The US will also prosecute you for genocide and slavery no matter where it occurs. And being a US citizen isn't a requirement for those if they can capture you.

The US has jurisdiction over US citizens. This law is aimed at reducing the demand for kidnapped/enslaved children by prosecuting the people who pay to abuse those children.

So hypothetically, if an 18 year old goes to Europe and purchases a beer.. you're okay with him being arrested and tried in the US (MIP - Minor in Possession) even though 18-year-olds can drink in Europe?

Also:

If an American goes to Norway (where filesharing is perfectly legal) and downloads a movie...
If an American goes to Amsterdam and smokes some weed...

etc, etc

In my humble opinion, if we are really outraged by the laws of another country (aka, a country has an age-of-consent we don't like) we should use trade agreements and negotiation to get that country to change the law. We should not simply make it illegal for Americans to do that thing when they're in that that country.

It is a two edged sword sounds great if it hammering people engaged in the slave trade but  what if they  applied it to drug use as an example.  Progressive FakerTM goes to Amsterdam and uses a substance that is illegal n the U.S.   You are counting on government to be restrained in its use of power when history shows that is a rarity

Seems to me it would be more effective  to try and get other countries to change their laws than this , I assumes rarely used law, that establishes a dangerous precedent that invites an abuse of power.

Prosecuting a few Americans I don't think is gong to be of much help to those 15 year old girls in the DR.

You need to go after the slavers/pimps and free these slaves. and you need host country cooperation for that. If you obtain that cooperation by force or persuasion is anther matter.

Bob Robert: Do you want to tell me in legal terms, why it should be okay to break certain laws abroad?


For a criminal charge to be brought against an individual, the body making the charge needs to have jurisdiction. This is because quite simply, different places have different laws and different punishments. Stealing a chicken in Iran gets your hand chopped off, while stealing a chicken in California might get you probation. Committing a murder in Norway gets you 20 years, committing a murder in the US gets you either LWOP or the Death Penalty (after a lengthy appeals process) depending on the state. Committing a murder in China gets you brought out back immediately after the trial and shot in the head.

Because all these different places have different laws and different punishments, plus we have laws in the US against double jeopardy, typically you can only be tried in a court that has jurisdiction regarding the location where the crime occurred. So if you kill a person in a non-DP state, they can't go try you in Texas, unless there is some element of the crime that gives Texas courts jurisdiction.

So for example, a Dutch National caught planting a marijuana seed in Malaysia might face life in prison plus ten lashings, even if what he's doing is perfect legal in the Netherlands. Everybody accepts this.

The question, generally speaking, is whether a Malaysian national who plants a marijuana seed in the Netherlands in compliance with Dutch law and then goes home should face life in prison + ten lashings. Malaysia says yes. But I hope most reasonable people would say no, because the countries that do this are typically ones whose legal system we really don't want to model.

Here's the F-ed up part of that law, 16 is legal unless she is a prostitute, this doesn't apply to those scummy "Foreign Bride" brokers.  So they can actively target 16 year olds as long as they pay a broker instead of a pimp.

You're arguing against laws that don't exist. The US has a law that says it's illegal to go to another country to have sex with people under sixteen, or prostitutes under eighteen. That's all. It doesn't even criminalize overseas sex with prostitutes over eighteen, despite all prostitution being illegal in the US. The law is narrowly crafted to combat child sex trafficking, and there's literally no rational basis for arguing against it.

So in your reading, the 6th Amendment acts as a barrier to the exercise of US extraterritorial jurisdiction. It must, then, implicitly abolish Congress's power to "define and punish felonies committed on the high seas." The traditional legal and constitutional meaning of "high seas" being "seas not within the territorial jurisdiction of any nation."

Bob Robert: Your legal claims are wrong and the courts have backed up the government, even the states, when prosecuting citizens who commit the crimes elsewhere. You should stop posting with your GED in law.


I can tell you vote Republican. While there are some really stupid Democrats out there, and there are some really smart Republicans out there, there is a level of sheer stupidity which I have observed only exists in people that also happen to vote Republican. It is unfortunate that the Republican party has to tolerate such nitwits as yourself in their ranks. We will see shortly if you are also functionally illiterate.

See, I'm stating facts. The broad concept of jurisdiction and it's application within our legal system is a fact. It is specified in article III, section II of the Constitution. The punishments I have outlined for different crimes around the world are also fact.

Congress is Constitutionally allowed to pass laws granting the courts jurisdiction in personam. But just because a law is constitutional doesn't necessarily mean it's a good idea; all good laws are Constitutional, but not all Constitutional laws are good. This is logic. Logic is fact.

There is one thing I stated which is not fact, because it is my opinion:

The question, generally speaking, is whether a Malaysian national who plants a marijuana seed in the Netherlands in compliance with Dutch law and then goes home should face life in prison + ten lashings. But I hope most reasonable people would say no, because the countries that do this are typically ones whose legal system we really don't want to model.


So let me pick apart your derp.

Your legal claims are wrong  -- NOPE

and the courts have backed up the government, even the states, when prosecuting citizens who commit the crimes elsewhere -- So what? If the question of constitutionality (what the courts decide) was tantamount to determining a general opinion regarding an Act of Congress, I suppose you have no problem with Obamacare, right? Because the courts said it was constitutional. Therefor it must be a good idea, using your logic.

Oh please, oh please let me find you on a thread where you disagree with ANYTHING Congress does, so I can ask where your GED in law is because the courts "backed up" (whatever that means) Congress on that issue.

See, I also argued against "theoretical abuses" that could happen under the Patriot Act, when that was being discussed. And I was also told those abuses didn't exist. And then they did. Because if you give government an inch it takes a mile.

So on one hand, I think this specific law is a good idea. But I have a problem with the general notion (in generic terms) that I could abide by the laws of the country I'm in and the US could still call it a crime and claim jurisdiction. Because if a country is really so bad and it's laws are so morally outrageous Congress feels the need it has to give itself jurisdiction over what I do there, then pressure it to change the laws or sanction it for human rights abuses. Or don't allow flights there from the US. Does that not make any sense?

In almost all cases the person traveling overseas is breaking the law in their destination country, it's just the destination country may have extremely lax enforcement.

/I have no idea exactly what Dominican laws say on this topic, and frankly don't really want to google it.


Well maybe you shouod just to see if Rush's Cabana Boy is legal.

15 year old Dominicans?  isn't that like at least 26 in First World years?  I mean it can't be closer to the currency exchange rate of 1.00 USD = 43.2599 DOP

Bob Robert: m00: But I hope most reasonable people would say no, because the countries that do this are typically ones whose legal system we really don't want to model.

Your legal claims are wrong and the courts have backed up the government, even the states, when prosecuting citizens who commit the crimes elsewhere. You should stop posting with your GED in law.


its weird that someone who has been here for two weeks can comment so frequently and knows so many fark specific memes.
