IA: Iowa Supreme Court says State has ‘no duty’ to end what sex offenders call ‘silent mandatory minimum’

Source: desmoinesregister.com 12/7/21

Do prisoners have a right to be paroled? And if so, do they have a right to access programming required to be eligible for parole?

As a new decision from the Iowa Supreme Court shows, there’s no easy answer to either question. The court’s ruling, issued before Thanksgiving, denied an effort by seven Iowa prisoners to challenge what they described in court filings as a “Catch-22” that forces some inmates to wait far longer than others to complete their sentences.

The issue before the court involved Iowa’s treatment of convicted sex offenders. All seven plaintiffs are serving sentences for sex offenses. To be eligible for parole, they must complete sex offender treatment programming. But the state prison system has limited capacity to provide this treatment, and a lengthy waiting list, meaning convicted sex offenders likely won’t get access to the required programming until shortly before they’re due to be released anyway.

The Constitution got run over by those sworn to protect and defend it against foreign and domestic threats. Not every sex offense needs treatment and if treatment is needed the last place is in prison with state run “Dr” and “therapists”.

Registrants shouldn’t be forced into treatment run by state “ Drs and therapists”. Not ever registrant has the same issues and shouldn’t be in a one size fits all treatment. What treatment does a person need who peed on a tree? I never knew that trees, bushes, and other vegetation had feelings or can be victims.

I’ll try to be a little objective, lol.

If a person commits a crime then I don’t mind punishing them and forcing them to do some things that they do not want to do. That could include treatment. But it does need to be individualized and I think it must be separated from punishment or it won’t work very well. It is also not legitimate in any way to think that treatment is needed for sex crimes and not for just about every other kind of crime. It is 100% unacceptable that I was told that I need treatment but a career criminal who stuck a gun in someone’s face does not. Ridiculous and unacceptable.

Also, in my personal experience, I found that treatment was just an extension of probation. That made it fairly worthless. They assumed all the time that I was lying. Made me take polygraphs. So none of that was going to be useful. In fact, I’m pretty “obstinate defiant” and don’t react well to be told things in certain ways. I don’t react well to be called a liar. Once the Oppression Lists (OLs) really got going and that oppression really kicked in, I started working to actively reject treatment and ensure that it would never be productive.

As long as the OLs exist, I’m going to do the opposite of what the terrorists want. All the time.

So your treatment Is f the government and live your life by doing things you enjoy, being around loved ones, and forget what the Dodos in government say or do. That’s a treatment plan I support. As a troll would say, “ Good luck.”

Fairly close.

It’s that but it is also very important for me to improve the lives of PFRs and people who oppose Oppression Lists while at the same time lowering the quality of life for ALL “people” who think OLs are acceptable. Take a look at all the terrible things that are happening in Amerika today. There are people who have no concern what is happening to other people. There are people who are facilitating that, taking advantage of it, getting rich from it, etc. I am in the group of people who are winning. I do that at the expense of people who support the OLs, as much as possible. It’s not enough that I win, I also want them to lose.

The other part is that I am not forgetting “what the Dodos in government say or do”, lol. I’d call them worse, but sure. I’m not forgetting and I’m not forgiving. I am judging and delivering consequences. This is simply how it must be in Amerika.

Funny about the troll. Never contributed anything useful. I’ve always wondered if he/she is a pig and was just trying to stay low-key enough to keep from getting blocked from this site completely.
