Will Michigan State Police Start Arresting Cheaters Soon?
Michigan's top cop, Attorney General Dana Nessel, took to Twitter to remind Michigan residents that if they commit adultery, they could go to jail in Michigan.
Dana Nessel took to twitter to point out that the 90 year-old-law against adultery is technically still on the books in Michigan, which means the only thing stopping the state police from rounding up cheaters, is prosecutorial discretion.
The tweet is clearly directed to those who point out that technically abortion is still illegal in Michigan. That law is currently overruled by Roe. vs Wade in Michigan, but many believe that the Supreme Court may once again revert the right to regulate abortion, back to the states. If that happens Michigan's nearly century-old law would once again be in effect.
Adultery is a felony in Michigan. The prohibition was passed the same year as MI’s abortion ban. Do those who support the Texas abortion law also support granting standing to private citizens to sue adulterers when they violate the law? What say you Michigan legislators?
The Attorney General also asks whether or not the Ten Commandments should be a guide in which laws are prosecuted:
Do MI residents want to see me, the top law enforcement official in the state, start to prosecute crimes of adultery? I have used my prosecutorial discretion not to do so, but do the Ten Commandments dictate otherwise? Which legislators would like me to initiate such actions?
Most comments seemed to understand the point that was being made about archaic laws that the legislature has yet to rectify:
But hey, some are apparently all good with rounding up the cheaters and taking them to jail:
What do you think?
