The Truth Could Set Them Free

Why did California destroy research into a group of people it says are dangerous enough to be locked up indefinitely?

In late 2006, a public defender went before a Napa County judge to argue for his client’s freedom. ____ _____, a 49-year-old man, had been detained for seven years at Atascadero State Hospital under a 1995 California law authorizing “civil commitment” of people who have been convicted of sex offenses, a practice that keeps them confined long after they have completed their sentences.

Wow.

⭐⭐⭐ Excellent article!! A must-read!! 👍

When I was in SO treatment from 1988-1993 a therapist was claiming re-offense rate as high at 80%, There 25 in the group and out of that group there was one that offended. My PO whom supervised about 40 SO said, he had only 3 re-offended sexually. One day when this therapist was on her soap-box of hysteria. I asked her do she has any support about her claim and she replied “it was her feeling that they were high”. Than I brought her attention to really of the group and what my PO told me that it appears the re-offense rates are actually very low and she said “that did not mean anything to her”. The point I am making is that the re-offense rate was always low and the treatment providers has purposely distorted the numbers for the support of their careers

Keep in mind that at heart of this article is the following paper, which delved into Dr. Padilla’s suppressed research into Karl Hanson’s highly flawed Static 99 (which, surprisingly, the Static is no where mentioned in the linked article above):

Keep in mind that the Static 99’s flawed methodology will be a big part of our future laws, including the Tiered Registry.

It’s history repeating itself. This time, though, many government-sponsored scam artists have created a massive web of “scientific studies” to “validate” the “science.”

This is highly troubling and disturbing, straight out of Orwell’s 1984.

God help us all.

@Ivan

Is there not science to oppose the web being built which can be used to argue with? Fight science with science
