    ACLU Defeats Connecticut Assisted Outpatient Treatment" Law Months Before Massacre​


    By: MOTUS
    12-16-2012



    (snip)Connecticut is one of only SIX states in the U.S. that doesn’t have a type of “assisted outpatient treatment” (AOT) law (sometimes referred to as “involuntary outpatient treatment”). There’s no one standard for these types of laws, but (roughly speaking) these are laws that allow for people with mental illness to be forcibly treated BEFORE they commit a serious crime.(snip)



    Apparently far left groups (the ACLU filing against the law here) defeated a Connecticut mental health protections law just months before the Newtown shootings. Their primary concern being that the proposed law would “severely curtail the privacy rights and liberty issues of people with psychiatric disabilities.”



    “Disabilities?” That’s a nice politically correct term. Unfortunately nobody on the ACLU staff addressed the severe curtailment of the privacy rights and liberties of the victims of a person suffering from one of these “dangerous disabilities.”(snip)

    In other news: Hillary Clinton will be unable to testify on the Benghazi affair this week since apparently she fell down and broke her crown.

    “I’m just telling you, son, it’s always about the cover-up.”

    No one can predict the future. No one can tell if ANYONE is gonna' commit a crime. And if any assh*le says they can they're lying.

    For once, the ACLU is right here.

    If the Gov't can force ONE person to get treatment then they'll force EVERYONE to get it.

    Such laws are unconstitutional except in extreme cases.

    btw,

    I'm sure many of you will be delighted to know that NJ Governor Chris Christie has delayed such a law in that state passed in 2010, for lack of funds.

    So blame him if anyone gets shot in NJ.

    Except in this case there was ample reason for committment to an asylum. But the ACLU thinks differently and along in the same vein NYCarabineer and you agree with the ACLU. As long as you dissent and avoid the use of mental institutions for those that are beyond drugs controlling them, there will incidents of this nature. Sure take away the guns, then what do you do about knives, autos and other instruments to kill one another?
