MN: Protracted Sex Offender Program suit comes to end

A long-running class-action lawsuit over the constitutionally of Minnesota’s civil commitment program for sex offenders effectively ended Thursday when a federal judge dismissed the remaining claims but stood by his earlier statements that some revelations during the six-week trial shock his conscience.

    Your shock is worthless if you’re going to still rule against this. You’re a judge. If a law is that bad, do something about it. Don’t be shocked at the ovens and their purpose, but continue to stand by their use.

  2. R M

    This judge has no gonads. He continually defers judgements.

    This is extremely horrifying wether you are a male or female. This reminds me of the past when people were locked up in asylums indeffently. Horrible experments were performed on them in a lot of the asylums. I wonder exactly what is happening in these places.

    Shocked by procedures enacted upon sex offenders? Abolish the registry. There will immediately be zero sex offenders on which to enact such procedures.

      Dream on Anonymous..the registry would be a lot bolder and colder if not for Janice and Chance..but still Janice and Chance are constantly pushing that boulder up the proverbial hill..

        He’s right. The Registry needs to be abolished and its abolition will remain the goal of this organization and the many individuals who support it. Whether or not that is a ‘dream’ or an attainable goal it is the policy that must drive our continued efforts. Policies cannot be shaped by the prejudices of those demoralizing forces who lack a historical perspective. The Registry is a historically recent phenomenon. Stop pretending that you know it to be an eternal one. You don’t have a crystal ball and neither do we.

          You’re right. Who knows, back in colonial times, people thought branding a murderer’s palm with an “M” or a thief’s with an “T” sounded like a good idea and it was so popular and intuitive, who would have thought it would ever be abolished, even when applied to “the worst of the worst”. What doesn’t work gets tossed eventually, unfortunately it sometimes means great loss for many before it is.
