Guantanamo in SL

Post by Justice Soothsayer »

This one doesn't fit in the "CDS Events" but I thought it would be interesting for many CDS citizens.

Seton Hall School of Law has built a [url=http://slurl.com/secondlife/IML/164/186/123:1ho6f21o]SL version of Guantanmo Bay[/url:1ho6f21o] at which it will hold a Constitution Day [url=http://law.shu.edu/administration/publi ... m:1ho6f21o]program on “Interrogation and Intelligence Gathering.[/url:1ho6f21o]” on September 17th.

US federal law, sponsored by Sen. Robert Byrd (D-WV for life) requires any college or university receiving federal student loan funds to hold educational programs about the Constitution on or about September 17th each year, the anniversary of the adoption of the US Constitution.

Funding for the virtual detention center comes in part from the MacArthur Foundation, the folks who provide "genius grants".

Should we consider a prison camp theme for our 4th sim?

Thanks for pointing us to the event.

Having 25% of our land as a prison and trying to get the fees paid would be a challenge :)

Forefeited bail funds? Fees for extraordinary renditions? Use as a movie set?

There are reports in the German media about militant extremists using SL avatars to communicate and transfer funds to one another (for example: http://magazine.web.de/de/themen/digita ... =mba4.html).

Perhaps it was built as a reaction to this?

I have to say I'm getting a bit tired of these German journalists, who seem to make a headline out of every time they find out that what people do in real life they will also attempt in virtual life.

Ignoring ARD and Spiegel on a regular basis, i agree wholeheartedly, Diderot! But there are some islands of reason in this ocean of nonsense, like the "Blaetter für deutsche und internationale Politik" - 6,600 sold units this month - it is not the quality, it is the demand. The yellow color is dominating. If you look at the Avastar, that is german mass media in a nut shell.

Perfect! we now have a place for people convicted under Beathn's Criminal code and Treason Laws! And, of course, the perfect spot for our ostracized citiens... :twisted:
