    That is still confinement after they pay their debt to society, unconstitutional and a human rights issue because of myth of RSOs being extremely dangerous.

      In this case, they may very well be. These types of confinements are few and far between given how many registered citizens are out there. Despite the general myths about how SO boogieman, some people are genuinely dangerous. The article mentions one of the two men was assaulting female guards during his prison confinement.

        Or they may well very not be. There are plenty locked away at Coalinga who are not dangerous.

        • Nicholas Maietta

          Yep. I have met now 3 from Coalinga who have somehow managed to get out. Good people actually.

        • David Kennerly, One-Man Thought Crime Wave

          I know one, Michael St. Martin, whose political activism as an advocate for “Hosprisoners,” has certainly been used against him in keeping him locked-up.

          While there had been no releases from CSH up until approximately six or seven years ago, there has since been several hundred, often by the courts and against the advice of the administration. Nevertheless, the great majority remain interred within and with the slimmest of due processes.

          It is fully deserving of greater scrutiny and this organization’s public criticism.

    We have feeble minded individuals in far too important positions. They are only capable of status quo. They have forgotten the true meaning of our constitution and have become those for why it was written.
