This board is really going at it. I bet this is not what Eldon had in mind when he said his company was going public.

This law is not only unconstitutional, it is unrealistic. It gives broad discretion to prosecutors who are not qualified to make an accurate psychological determination, paving the way for wrongful committments, lawsuits and more importantly, depriving the person of his freedom in a toltarian fashion. This is a mental health issue, not a criminal one. There is no human way to stop someone from comitting a crime after their release. Why aren't they civilly comitted before they commit any crime at all??? For one reason, it just isn't possible. The problem needs to solved without radical paranoid plans that serve no purpose for public safety.
