      You can bet that if it comes to them having to actually turn over what they HAD…they won’t have it anymore, and claim: ‘Accidental Deletion of Old Archived Files!’ Watch and see if it actually comes to that…which it must might.
      Nuff Said!

      A Mistake They Made

      SCOTUS used false data from a magazine to determine the fate of a million American citizens we have this proof why have we not begun a class action law suite against the USA and put this to rest once and for all? Once they are made to admit this error the rest will fall down like a house of cards.

        You’re spot-on with reference to Robert Freeman-Longo’s article in “Psychology Today”. That magazine is not a peer-reviewed journal like J.A.M.A. (Journal of the American Medical Association). It’s a mass circulation pop. psych. periodical. This article was written by Mr. Freeman-Longo when he was promoting his treatment program to the state of California. The article was misquoted. Mr. Freeman-Longo never said 80-85% of ALL sex offenders will go on to recidivate; he said 80-85% of UNTREATED sex offenders would go on to recidivate. The statistics have been soundly refuted with scientific studies in either case, but the point remains that even with that unsupported assumption on the part of Mr. Freeman-Longo the court altered his quote by changing the quote by just one word: UNTREATED.

        Does anyone see a similarity between this and what Satan did with Eve in the garden of Eden? God told Adam & Eve if they ate the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil they would SURELY DIE.
        Satan told Eve the surely would NOT die. Satan added one word and that’s all it took.

          Not only that, but in 2016 Mr. Longo has himself repudiated the validity and use of his own study! I gotta hand it to him for that. NARSOL rejects posts with links to other websites, so I can’t provide the source article.

          Veritas.

      Christopher Tyre,
      I’m very familiar with his tactics in risk assessment. Chris is a behavioral modification psychologist and has worked in SOTP treatment settings since the 90s, mostly at OCCI unit G, in Oshkosh WI. Christopher pretends to be a hard ass.
      His stance on homosexuality is old school and if he wants to up your risk that is where he goes to do it. He makes you out a threat to boys even when the record doesn’t support it with facts. If an offender was “openly gay” would not end up in his groups. IMO he knew behavior mod was useless for gay men and it was a source of professional anxiety for him. That’s my assessment of him.

      NARSOL, Note the dataset used originally wasn’t even U.S.
      Laughable! But that is who you’re dealing with. If this gets traction it calls into question the effic quality every WI DOC assessment.

      I am afraid that in the grand scheme of things this will only be a “minor hiccup” in the state’s machinations to create as many sexually violent predators as possible to justify their civil commitment scheme and the expenditures (livelihoods of stakeholders such as administrators, their “treatment” providers, “expert” 120 grand a year “evaluator”, etc.).

      Someone better be doing something to make danged sure the real data doesn’t “get lost” or “accidentally deleted” or altered/falsified in some way before this whole process plays out. This is of such a magnitude the state will do anything AND I MEAN ANYTHING at this point to cover their butts because they’ve been caught red-handed in an out-and-out LIE that has fraudulently and irreparably harmed no telling how many WI citizens.

        @WCTN,
        Imagine the look on an SOR agents face when you ask him\her about the DOC use of the plytheshomograph experience on the witness stand. Obviously, the topic is taboo in the context of testimony in the failure to register case but quite effective as to why any sane person wouldn’t trust the benevolent intent of their agency with concern for my personal information data.. I’ve put them in WI on the stand several times and i keep getting better at it. Obviously, I am not locked up so you can presume I’ve been moderately successful. Yelping to the feds is one tactic; confronting a jury another. At least this attorney has the right idea and attacks the USE OF the database.

      Because this is taxpayer funded work, tax payers (aka people forced to register) should be working to retrieve it under tax payer need to know in a transparent government.
