    Far Left Groups Defeated Connecticut Mental Health Protection Laws Just Months Before Shooting​

    Months before the Newtown massacre far left groups defeated a Connecticut mental health protections law.
    Counter Contempt reported:


    Here’s a fact you might not know – 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. Whereas previous legal standards held that the mentally ill cannot be institutionalized or medicated until they harm someone or themselves, or until they express an immediate intent to do so, AOT laws (again, roughly speaking) allow for preventativeinstitutionalization or forced medication (I highly recommend reading the data cited in the link I provided in this paragraph, especially regarding what is known as “first episode psychosis”).

    Earlier this year, Connecticut considered passing an AOT law (and a weak one, at that), and it failed, due to protests from “civil liberties” groups.

    Leading criminal psychologist Dr. Alan Lipman offered this assessment on the Sandy Hook killings this morning,

    “The fact is, the facts are, as in Aurora, as in Arizona, as in Virginia Tech, as in virtually every case the Secret Service studied of these kinds of events… Every one of these episodes is proceeded by an undiagnosed, untreated, mental illness… Over the last 24 hours increasing information has come in from family members, from friends, from students, that Adam Lanza, as you have mentioned, was disturbed, was removed, was isolated.”

    Since when are "civil liberties" groups now the "far left"? I see civil liberties groups across the entire political spectrum. The NRA, for example, spends millions of dollars to defeat laws that would make it more difficult for paranoid wingnut to be denied guns. The NRA also opposed laws that would mandate that people diagnosed with a mental illness be added to the instacheck database.

    If they went around institutionalizing crazy people, who'd be left to vote democrat?

    If you needed a sanity test before purchasing a firearm, only liberals would be armed.

    Sounds like your neonazi buddies gave you a fake version. Right now, the KGB are busy becoming rich capitalists. I'm sure many are in the arms dealing sector of the economy. That would make them conservatives, not liberals.
