On ending civil commitment: It’s like Guantanamo Bay, but for a different kind of ‘terrorist’ …

Date: February 03, 2021

“It is far better to be punished than to be treated,” is a line I can recall from some article or book that I once read, but the attribution of which is currently failing me. It speaks a truth that becomes apparent when you consider what we euphemistically call ‘civil commitment.’

We imprison people for things that they have done (or, at least, the things they were convicted of). That’s a pretty standard axiom of our criminal law. Civil commitment flips the arrangement on its head, and instead imprisoning them for what they might do.

In its most muscular form, it’s applied to people who have been convicted of sex offenses. Slightly less than half the states and the federal government have the ability to, potentially indefinitely, detain people for (ostensibly) the purposes of treatment. In America, at last count, there are roughly 6,300 people detained in this manner, with Black and LGBTQ individuals 2-3X more likely to be committed than non-minority counterparts.

Last month, Virginia lawmakers introduced a bill to end the practice in the commonwealth (though it was sent to Virginia State Crime Commission and won’t be passed anytime soon). Still, it’s a notable development in an area of the law that gets little attention.

We should end civil commitment. Here’s some reasons why:”


12yo Girl Finds Hidden Camera Recording Her in Shower—It Belonged to a Cop…

“A top cop with the Weber County Sheriff’s Office was arrested last Wednesday and charged with utterly disturbing crimes for spying on the little girl. Marc Swain, 47, is a crime scene investigator with the sheriff’s office who has found himself on the other side of the law after his arrest last week on multiple counts of voyeurism and sexual exploitation of a minor.

Swain is accused of hiding a recording device in a bathroom used by a 12-year-old girl. The girl told her parents about the camera after she noticed a camera lens in various places moving around the bathroom every time she showered.

Before he was arrested, when Swain was questioned by someone who knows the girl, he reportedly told them that he accidentally left a “flash drive” in the bathroom that including a camera. Apparently, he “accidentally” left it in the bathroom — repeatedly and in different locations.

Because the alleged crimes took place in the county in which Swain is a cop, the Layton City Police Department was called in to conduct the investigation to prevent the conflict of interest.

Once the investigation was launched, Swain quickly caved to the pressure and admitted what he had been doing.

While this case may seem crazy, we reported on another identical case just a few weeks ago. As TFTP reported in December, just like Swain, a Mandan police officer in North Dakota set up a camera in the exhaust fan of a bathroom to record a young girl getting in and out of the shower. The person alleged to have put the camera in the fan is 45-year-old Scott Warzecha. Warzecha was the main suspect because the camera in the fan was on a cellphone that belonged to the cop.”

…Good grief!…these stories keep chaining, one to another…

…In the linked story in the above quote, they link to yet another case of the same thing…only with a cop recording a boy…

“As we previously reported, officer David Cerna of the Chesterfield police department was arrested for recording an underage boy using the bathroom with a hidden camera that he placed in a Mobile on the Run gas station, among other things. He would then upload the videos to a porn site online. He also detained and searched a child victim he had previously recorded.”

What’s with all these cops trying to get illegal nudies of young kids?

…Dare I follow that last link?…I might find more links, to more stories.

Chris Hedges’ Empire of Illusion – The New School…


Date: February 03, 2021

“Chris Hedges lectures at The New School, a university in New York City offering distinguished degree, certificate, and continuing education programs in art and design, liberal arts, management and policy, and the performing arts. THE NEW SCHOOL http://www.newschool.edu​

Journalist Chris Hedges discusses his recent book Empire of Illusion: the End of Literacy and the Triumph of Spectacle. In it, he charts the dramatic rise of a post-literate society that craves fantasy, ecstasy, and illusion. Hedges argues we now live in two societies: one, the minority, functions in a print-based, literate world and can cope with complexity and can separate illusion from truth; the other, a growing majority, is retreating from a reality-based world into one of false certainty and magic where serious film and theater, as well as newspapers and books, are being pushed to the margins.

Chris Hedges, author of War Is a Force That Gives Us Meaning, is currently a senior fellow at The Nation Institute and the Anschutz Distinguished Fellow at Princeton University. He writes for many publications, including Foreign Affairs, Harpers, The New York Review of Books, Granta, and Mother Jones. He is also a columnist for Truthdig.com.”
