Source: stormlake.com 1/24/23

A patient at the Cherokee Civil Commitment Unit for Sex Offenders has demanded $2.25 million from the state for damages including “forced castration” that was inflicted after an improperly close relationship with a CCUSO psychologist.

Jeff ____ has requested $1.5 million for “pain and suffering” and an additional $750,000 for punitive damages from the relationship, which has been described in court documents as an “emotional affair” that included sexual discussions. In a Jan. 12 filing in Cherokee County District Court, ____’s  attorney, Brad Schroeder of Des Moines, said his client suffered from “prolonged confinement and forced castration.”

Yea I’m sure it was his choice to be castrated, plenty of inmates are cowed into coercion.

Oh yeah that’s what they’re doing all right. […]

How is this relic of humankind’s barbaric past still around? How in the 21st century is castration possible? How can this act of mutilation be offered by the State as a, “Treatment”? How is this even possible?

Easy, lock people up until they “volunteer” for it, or die, then pretend that’s legitimate! Like when you voluntarily give your wallet and watch to the man holding the gun. It’s not like he’s placing you in an impossible situation that you’ll do anything to get out of…he just has a gun! Your choice to give him your valuables is voluntary. Just like this man’s voluntary choice to be castrated so he could have a chance of leaving that place is “voluntary”, because he could have just as easily volunteered to stay there until he died….just like the mugging, “Victim” could have, just as easily chose to keep their valuables…and die…maybe.

I can’t speak to this man’s exact experiences with the staff at this facility, I’m speaking more generally.

Disgusting, barbaric, savages!
