Sex Offenders Locked Up on a Hunch [Updated with Responses]

The essence of the American criminal justice system is reactive, not predictive: You are punished for the crime you committed. You can’t be punished simply because you might commit one someday. You certainly can’t be held indefinitely to prevent that possibility.

And yet that is exactly what is happening to about 5,000 people convicted of sex crimes around the country. This population, which nearly doubled in the last decade, has completed prison sentences but remains held in what is deceptively called civil commitment — the practice of keeping someone locked up in an institution for months, years or even decades for the purpose of preventing possible future offenses.

New York Times!! That should get more attention to the issue of registered citizens’ rights and the Constitution.

Coalinga State Hospital 75% of the facility is being used to house Sex Offenders were very few if any are ever released.

Wasn’t there a resent federal ruling that illegal aliens can’t be held beyond their sentence, but if you’re a RC that seems okay.

Future crimes division.. it’s like that movie

There is a deliberate witch hunt going on over sex offenders.

The truth is to be found within what can be objectively categorically proved by the USA governments own data and math any high school student is capable of. That result can be found in the book: http://www.amazon.com/Offender-Recidivism-Time-Commit-Crime/dp/1515177335

To understand the full evil of these laws, you need to realize what is being done to hundreds of thousands of totally innocent children of registered sex offenders, children like Kat: https://www.youtube.com/user/ChildOfSexOffender/videos

I would like to communicate with you offline. How do I do that?
