VA: Virginia lawmakers squash repeal of civil commitment law

[13newsnow.com – 1/28/21]

RICHMOND, Va. — Virginia lawmakers have squashed a proposal to repeal a decades-old Virginia law that allows the state to hold certain sex offenders at a psychiatric facility after they complete their criminal sentences.
Members of the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday voted to send the bill to the Virginia State Crime Commission for a study, ending its chances of being passed this year.

Democratic Sen. Joe Morrissey was the lead patron of the bill. He argued that the current system is unfair and punishes offenders twice for the same crime.

But the bill faced strong opposition from Republicans and opponents who said the current law is needed to protect society from offenders who have been deemed “sexually violent predators.”

To instill or not to instill? Seems authorities don’t know their left from their right when it comes to imposing sex inducements via this computer type of alignment. So who is judging fairly and who is usurping what is evil. So lets just toss the bible out the window and say even snipe hunting out of season is commendable.
Sure being seduced makes for a game of arosual for many things weather a protest, insurrection, or other, but its the inducement or do many put on a pair of boxing gloves, or who has a beam in their eyes. Many of these laws sound more like an argument than something getting done about sex offender rights.

So what is public safety? a type of insurrection of a Trump-ism era with his punishment to downplay his faults, or do we all have faults or who is perfect today in a court of law? And yes I do believe some actually got killed due to this insurrection.
