Great News Out of Minnesota
The Dobbs Wire: Great news out of Moose Lake, one of two spots where the scandalous Minnesota Sex Offense Program (MSOP) hums along and death is the easiest exit. Hundreds of individuals who already paid the price (a prison sentence) for a sexual offense are forced to pay another price — locked up indefinitely for dubious ‘treatment’ that never seems to end. A determined bunch inside got a hunger strike going, while outside organizing got rolling. Now state officials say they’re ready to talk! Kudos and congratulations to the guys who put their bodies on the line and all the organizers and allies. This ain’t over – they’ll need a lot of help getting a clear path home! Send hugs and solidarity to: endMSOP@gmail.com . Places like Moose Lake are constitutional and human rights nightmares, time to dismantle the laws that have 6,000 people held indefinitely around the country. Have a look at the news story and press release below.

- Dangers of a Preventive Detention LawHuman Rights Law: by David Fathi; January 3, 2009 6:07PM EST PRESIDENT-ELECT Barack Obama has said he’ll close the US detention center at Guantanamo Bay.

- Preventive Detention, Character Evidence, and the New Criminal Law“The criminal law is changing in a profound way. Anglo-American criminallaw has traditionally focused on deterring and punishing discrete acts ofmisconduct. In the last few decades, however, American criminal law has shiftedits focus from deviant acts to dangerous individuals. Incapacitation, which onceplayed only a peripheral role in the criminal law, has moved to center stage.Continue reading “Preventive Detention, Character Evidence, and the New Criminal Law”

In many US states, Sexually Violent Predator (SVP) laws have been enacted that allow for the post-prison preventive detention of high risk sex offenders. SVP laws require the courts to make dispositions that protect the public fromContinue reading “Sexual Predators: Society, Risk, and the Law (International Perspectives on Forensic Mental Health)”
