Funny how drug offenders (users and dealers) are constantly portrayed as being in need of “treatment” as opposed to re-incarceration, yet none of them are referred to these not-a-prison “treatment facilities” despite repeatedly and consistently doing exactly what landed them in the criminal justice system in the first place.
The fact is he was re- incarcerated before a jury & civil trial, and without due process.
“He filed in 2003 for decisions three years later.” They ( prosecutors ) do not necessarily need real evidence to convict in America. Accusations and innuendo are enough.
Imagine that! The State having to prove something before doing harm to a citizen. Seems i read this somewhere before why was this even a question? Ya Ya the government thinks there is a magic word called public safety that trumps the constitution whenever convenient.
I still do not understand how any court, let alone the US Supreme count can say that registration is not a punishment. Using that logic you say it safer to leave all convicted felons in prison indefinitely and state that prison is not really a punishment. Redefine punishment and you can do anything to anyone.
