      Among many problems with this system, the people who determine you are in need of indefinite treatment are always a part of the system who makes money from your indefinite stay. They would claim that they the only ones with the experience to make such decisions. In reality, no other psychological professional would participate in such “treatment” because it always based on pseudo-science.

      They are scared to death of actual professionals telling the world that these psychs are full of you know what. We keep finding out that these institutional psychs commit fraud to keep their little kingdom going (California, the UK).

      I’m positive there are dangerous people out there. However, regimes like this are likely to never discover who those people actually are. These “treatments” are more likely to trap those who aren’t devious enough to fool these low-paid state employees!

      If Civil commitment isn’t punitive then prison is not punitive! They are one in the same!! The only difference is you are forced to attend treatment programs that try to make you look bad and keep you committed! It’s worse than prison to be honest. To say it’s not punitive is laughable and any judge who says otherwise refuses to see the truth through their own biases.

      No matter how they label it. It’s still punishment. It always has been, and always will be. The real reason is simply this: MONEY! Everyone gets MONEY, for every Human Soul they keep locked up, and by the way, we all know it’s NEVER any real treatment that goes on. It’s corrupted actions by Guards and other Prison Staff against these Inmates. It’s every day too. Believe it or not, that’s EXACTLY what’s going on at this very moment…and of course everyone that COULD do something about it, turns a Blind Eye. As far as I’m concerned; The Supreme Court is Corrupt, because they want us to die! That’s why they rule like they do.
      Nuff Said!

      To start with, putting my two cents worth is most likely a total waste of time, simply because anyone that can do something to stop this madness isn’t reading this & PS they don’t really care anyhow!! But having said that, a politician in Virginia ( I believe?) said civil commitment reminded him of the Tom Cruise movie, Minority Report where people were being arrested for something they might do in the future?? Let that soak in!!! 2nd, the International Human rights organization of the UN, listened to several professional people & people that had been in civil commitment plus a few spoke briefly about the registry & how it is in violation of human rights & violating US Constitution. No ruling has been decided, that I have seen, but hopefully there will be a ruling against these draconian laws against the United States & maybe just maybe someone will wake up & come to their sense’s???
