The only fucking individuals who support and condone civil commitment centers aka shadow prisons are cretins, scaremongers, prosecutors, court of law judges, power-hungry politicians, Fascists, Nazis & Communists

I have a family member in this facility. He has had at least 5 case workers since he has been in the facility. They can’t keep help. Every time the case workers advise that a person is ready to be released, they get overrode by the people that oversee the facility. They should not be able to override the experts. This is against these men’s rights, this is nothing but a prison. If these men are supposed to be in therapy, to get released at some point, then how come they don’t get to go out of the facility on day trips to get used to reacclimatimg back to society? Why aren’t they learning to work or drive a car around the facility, so that they can easily intergrade back into society. One simple answer, because the facility has no intent of ever releasing these men. It’s not right. If these men were going to serve life, then their prison sentence should have been life. Something needs to be done as we are wasting money and definitely not getting a ROI. These men would be getting better treatment in an outside, real life, therapeutic place where they can practice live to live in society again.

There is too much injustice connected with this. These men (and women?) are cruelly treated, and this needs to change. They have loved ones and families just like the rest of us, who suffer from unfair, unthinkable laws.

I have a Loved One in the beginning stages of being 'sued' (Civil Commitment) by Houston, Harris County DA. He has done and will discharge his time, 15 years!! Now losing sleep over this! It's not a good place. With so many Programs and Family Support being offered here in Houston, we cannot believe he is facing this threat to the rest of his life.

Civil commitment, as applied to those who have committed sexual offenses, is repugnant to every principle of justice. No other class of felons is subjected to a sham hearing based on "fear of what they MIGHT DO at some point in the future.

It's hypocrisy to find an individual competent to stand trial and assist in their own defense on the front end when it comes to culpability and sentencing and then magically mentally unfit when it comes to releasing them at the end of the term of confinement. The state should NEVER have it both ways. Either it is a mental health issue and is treated as such from start to finish or it's a criminal matter. Pick one and stick with it.

This is just a sham to lock these people up for life over what they did in the first place.
