Convicted pedophile released, ‘no longer deemed threat’ because he says he’s a woman from Life Site News
GNN Note – Simply because you claim to be something, doesn’t make it true. If I claim to be the winner of a sporting event, even though I came in last place, that doesn’t give me a right to claim victory.
Joseph Matthew Smith is a 23-year-old who was convicted of molesting a fellow student back in 2014, but according to state’s expert Dr. Jeffrey Davis, Smith has molested as many as 15 children—ranging from ages one to 13. He now ‘identifies’ as a woman.
If you were one of those inquiring souls who was wondering just how crazy the transgender phenomenon could get, the answer to that question may have just surfaced in the Des Moines Register under the headline: “Convicted of sex crimes as a man, felon no longer deemed threat because of gender change.”
Yeah, you read that right. According to the Register: “The Iowa Attorney General’s Office is no longer seeking the commitment of a former Midwest Christian services student convicted of myriad sex crimes because the individual now identifies as a woman. Court records show the state dismissed the application on Jan. 9. Attorney general spokesman Lynn Hicks wouldn’t comment on the reason for the dismissal other than to say ‘an offender’s hormone levels are an important part of substantiating an offender’s likelihood of recidivism.’”
To provide a bit of context here, Joseph Matthew Smith is a 23-year-old who was convicted of molesting a fellow student back in 2014, but according to state’s expert Dr. Jeffrey Davis, Smith has molested as many as 15 children—ranging from ages one to 13. In fact, Davis’s report indicated that “the likelihood of re-offending within five years of release exceeded 20% because victims were of both genders, and because Smith was under age 25 and never had a long-term relationship.”
But because this pedophile now identities as a woman named Josie—and the Des Moines Register refers to Smith as “she” throughout their reportage on this insanity—he will now be set free. Smith had started the process of getting “started on transgender classification in October 2017 and started using female pronouns” at Newton Correctional Facility, and attorney general spokesman Lynn Hicks “cautioned the public not to overreact to Smith’s upcoming release” because he will still be “subject to sex-offender registration requirements.”
To summarize: A convicted pedophile who molested children ranging from the ages of one to 13 is being set free despite a report indicating a high chance of re-offending because he now identifies as a woman.
