The state of North Carolina has been twisting the law by using the term “Supervised Release” instead of Probation for people who have already served their court ordered sentence. “Supervised Release” is a more palatable term, just like “Detention Center” is.
With Supervised Release, the state can imposed all the restrictions of Probation and more (they usually add like five years of Supervised Release) and yet appear holy and mighty in the public’s eyes. After all they have to protect ‘THOSE CHILDREN”.
Government has become not the protector of liberty but the usurper there of.
