Hi I am Back,
Here is something I wrote to Middlesex County, Trenton, and
Hello, Not sure if I am writing to the right parties, but here goes.I
would like to see the Sexual Civil Commitment Law either be reformed or
abolished. This law is very unfair and cruel. The offender is sentence does
his time and then is civilly committed in which could be a life sentence.
There has been hunger strikes in Minnesota protesting this law, as well as
Sen. Joe Morrissey, and Del. Patrick Hope, both Democrats, from Virginia,
are co-sponsoring legislation that would end the state's authority to
civilly commit sex offenders. They stated "We don't sentence people because
of what they might do," he said. "That's abhorrent to everything that our
democracy and our criminal justice system believes in." Also, ST. PAUL - A
federal judge has sternly warned the Legislature to change the sex offender
program or face a court-ordered intervention. "The time for legislative
action is now," U.S. District Judge Donovan Frank wrote in his Thursday
order. "The politicians of this great state must now ask themselves if they
will act to revise a system that is clearly broken, or stand idly by and do
nothing, simply awaiting court intervention." New Jersey needs to end this
unfair law for the better. These offender are call Residents not inmates,
however they are treated worst then if they were in prison. I believe that
all criminals deserve a second chance. To only civilly committed sex
offender while murders, and violent assaults go home is a form of
discrimination, and all you are doing is trying to please the public. If
you are going to have this civil commitment law then it should be either
for all or only the worst of the worst. Don't you think that the cost of
$180,000.00 offender per year is a lot of money specially when their is no
proof that the treatment works. Thank you for your time. I look forward to
any reply from you.
Now lets see if I get any feedback from these people.
Talk to you soon,
Sexual Civil Commitment
Here is a controversial article that will turnheads around. The unfair
Sexual Civil Commitment Law needs to be investigated ,aswell as the Special
Treatment Unit in Avenel, NJ., before people are afraid oftalking to the
opposite sex. The waythis law is, who knows when or who will be next to be
accused of a sexualoffense. This law is only one sided if you are accused
you are guilty but whatabout the person making the accusations, are they
always telling the truth onwhat really happened? Lives are being ruined,
families are being torn apart,all because of this unfair law.
Eleanor Roosevelt once said ,, "Justicecannot be for one side alone but
must be for both which needs to be fair andequal". Well it looks like the
law makers overlookedthe Sexual Civil Commitment Law, because this law is
only one sided.
What ever happened to the phase "We the Peoplefor the People"? Does this
mean that it applies to everybody except "sexoffenders"? Sex Offenders are
peopletoo, so where are their rights?
Sexual Civil Commitment seems to be designedto satisfy the politicians,
so they can get re-elected into public office. Itis also a way for the
state to get money and to make it look like they aredoing something.
It costs about $175,000 a year per offender tobe committed. There are
approximately 700 civilly committed offenders inAvenel, New Jersey, that
equals to $122,500,000.00. This cost is for housing,medical, treatment and
security. (Hereis a link that was written by CBS, dated June 22, 2010,
showing the cost to Sexually Civilly Commit a sex offender-
/ ) WHY, should New Jersey Taxpayers, pay for any treatment that the
state cannot prove works. I am sure they can use the money for better
issues. Please note, when you are civilly committed there is no time limit
to serve, therefore you can be committed indefinitely. If you happen to
get out, you will be on parole for life, sex registry, and where tolive and
to whom you can live with.
The Special Treatment Unit (STU), in Avenel, NJ is one such place that
needs to be investigated, in warehousing Sexually Civilly Committed Sex
Offenders. They are called residents not inmates but are treated worst then
prisoners in prison. The Correction Officers, Therapist's, treat them as
scum as well as the public. Their treatment program is one size fits all,
regardless of your sex crime. Therefore murders, rapists, kidnapers
and sexually assaulted crimes, are all under one treatment program. People
with developmental disabilities who can't do the programs are held
indefinitely, WHY? If you don't participate in the group, you are put on
Treatment Refusal, and some of your privilege's are denied.
If the program did work, why isn't there more residents released from
Civil Commitment Facilities around the nation, and why is it that there's no
information on how many are released?
In STU, there have been residents that have been murdered, where the
public has no information about this. There have been residents that have
been sexually assaulted (my son is one of them) by other residents,
which has never been reported to the public. It seems that any activity that
occurs is a hush up, and the public never hears anything about it.
There are residents that never did a crime in New Jersey, but they are
civilly committed, one such person is Russell Tinsley who is being
wrongfully held.( Link
Here is link to another Class Action Lawsuit filed by another civilly
confined detainees' dated Oct. 24, 2016. Obviously, there is
something wrong with this facility if they are constantly having class
action lawsuits against them. Also, it seems that nothing was ever done
about these lawsuits because every problem/issue that they had in October
2016, still exist today.
Is there any justice in America, under civil commitment for sex
offenders, at the STU's facility program? The answer is, NO!
There was a lawsuit filed by one of a the female psychiatric professional,
Dr. Vivian Shanaidman, against the State of New Jersey Department of Human
Services Division of Mental Health Services - (DHS)-(STU) and she sued the
present facility Clinical Director Merrill Main (M.M.)for sexual harassment
and retaliation against her because of her complaints. There was a lawsuit
settlement, but how is it that (M.M.) is still the (STU) -Clinical
The Government of the State of New Jersey is clearly covering it up, by
intimidating the civil commitment judges, psychiatric and lawyers into
silence and writing fraudulent reports and negligent representation. Dr.
Vivian Shnaidman's successful lawsuit reports the reason for such secrecy,
discrimination against anyone, against this civil commitment abuse, because
of the injustice of keeping someone locked up for life, and under the fake
diagnosis to justify civil commitment because the(STU) can generate enough
dividends to be a taxpayers' expense! Learn more about this breathtaking
discovery.( Link to the lawsuit
The Special Treatment Unit (STU), in Avenel needs to be investigated for
their activities and for not providing adequate treatment, protection and
fairness to residents. If these residents are to succeed in society, then
they need to be respected, and treated with fairness so they can grow to be
productive citizens within today's society, if not what is the purpose of
The public needs to be made aware of the cost of maintaining these
residents, that is costing taxpayers millions, and millions of dollars per
year, and the inadequate treatment program that still exists today.
There must be an editorial posted, about the unfair conditions, outdated
treatment, and the cost that (Parole Supervision for Life, Sex Registry, and
Civil Commitment) is associated with this unfair Sexual Civil Commitment
In addition, how can you expect adequate treatment and fairness, if it is
under the control and care of a Sexually Charged Clinical Director's
Sexual Civil Commitment needs to be changed for the better or be
eliminated. If civil commitment is for sex crimes, then it should also be
for all crimes. This is a very unfair law with a lifetime of punishment. Why
is it that sex offenders, are civilly committed after they serve their
sentence but, Murders, Terrorist and Bullies, go free after their sentence
is served, only to be able to commit another crime?
If you must have this unfair law, then let it be for all violent
First-Degree Sex Crimes who are the worst of the worst, nota simple sexual
assault charge, or past charges that you were not convicted of.
The public must be made aware of this unfair Sexual Civil Commitment Law,
and the punishment that it is associated with. Judges, Attorney Generals and
Politicians are afraid to let a sex offender out, in fair they may commit
another crime, and that they will have to answer for their actions, which
for most likely cost them their job.
The release program is based on if you will offend again in the future.
This is absurd, unless you are inside their head there is no way, you will
ever know if they will commit a crime in the future, Therefore the offender
is held indefinitely .
Who knows, the way society is, you may be the next one to be charged with
a sex crime, and then and only then will you understand this unfair double
jeopardy law that provides endless punishment that exists today. See you at
the Special Treatment Unit, in Avenel, NJ, unless you happen to not be
charged in a sex crime.
As mentioned, the public needs to be made aware of this unfair Sexual
Civil Commitment Law.
If we are to have a Civil Commitment Law, then it should be for people,
who forcefully and violently break the law, not just for sex crimes.
Are law makers, becoming Communist, are we becoming a Police Nation, are
we a country that didn't fight for freedom? If not , then all criminals
who commit crimes, including sex crimes should have the right to serve their
sentence that is required of them, and to be set free.
How do you expect a sex offender to do better if you are constantly
punishing them by making them feel like scum, instead of treating them with
fairness, and making them feel like they are part of
society? Criminals in prison are treated with more respect and
fairness than sex offenders, receiving treatment.
Thanking you in advance for your reply, and your investigation.

Sex Abuse complains about officers in N.J.
admin January 10, 2019 I have written numerous complaints and even tort
claims against the sexual abuse in the N.J. civil commitment scheme, but to
no avail. I need the public to know that the prison trashes legal papers
that I write.. My first complaint was about an officer at ADTC in Avenel,
N.J. prison. He came in my dorm to use the urinal. He called my name and
when I got there he asked me to look at his d... He has done this more than
once. The same officer calls me to his desk and asks me if I want to suck
his d... inside the office behind his desk. This, too, happened more than
once. I sent letters to adbusman about the abuse. SID came to speak to me
which was an investigation interview. I sent a tort claim notice, and the
prison ADTC got the legal mail and trashed it. They then shipped me to East
Jersey State prison. I need a lawyer to help me sue them.
Then at the new prison a security guard threatened me that he would put
me with a "Big guy" but will tell him not to hurt me, but to use vaseline
to make it more slippery. I wrote that up and SID spoke with me and got my
report. I sent a tort letter, and again the prison trashed the legal
paperwork. I need a lawyer to help me sue them.
Now October 22, 2018, I have stamped received by Wm Walsh, Clerk, my tort
claim about Northern State Prison where I was jumped and hit by around 6
officers. They took me to a single room where nobody was, and beat me up. I
need a lawyer to help me sue them.

Defending the constitutionality of civil confinement, MarkDayton exposes
the fallacy at its core.
By Jacob Sullum | 6.25.201511:02 AM
Last week U.S. District Judge DonovanFrank ruled that the Minnesota Sex
OffenderProgram (MSOP), which civilly confines people after they have
completed theircriminal sentences, violates the 14th Amendment's Due
Process Clause.Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton disagrees, but his defense of the
program exposesthe fallacy at its core. "It's really impossible to predict
whether or not [sexoffenders] are at risk to reoffend," Dayton says. "So
the more protection youcan give to the public, as far as I'm concerned,
given their history, isentirely warranted, and that's what this program
does right now."
Theproblem with Dayton's position is that the law authorizing the
MSOP requires predictionsabout whether or not sex offenders "are at risk to
reoffend"; if suchpredictions are "impossible," the whole law is a crock.
Under the Minnesota Civil Commitment and Treatment Act,two kinds of
offenders can be locked up, ostensibly for "treatment," after theyhave
served their time: a "sexually dangerous person" or a "sexual
psychopathicpersonality." The former is defined as someone who "has engaged
in a course ofharmful sexual conduct"; "has manifested a sexual,
personality, or other mentaldisorder or dysfunction"; and "as a result, is
likely to engage in acts ofharmful sexual conduct." The latter is defined
as someone who is deemed toexhibit "such conditions of emotional
instability, or impulsiveness ofbehavior, or lack of customary standards of
good judgment, or failure toappreciate the consequences of personal acts,
or a combination of any of theseconditions, which render the person
irresponsible for personal conduct withrespect to sexual matters, if the
person has evidenced, by a habitual course ofmisconduct in sexual matters,
an utter lack of power to control the person'ssexual impulses and, as a
result, is dangerous to other persons." Crucial toboth of these definitions
is a finding that the person, because of hispurported disorder, is likely
to commit new crimes after being released. Butaccording to Minnesota's
governor, who claims there is nothing wrong with theMSOP, such findings are
Itgets worse. "I don't think any parent in Minnesota wants to subject
theirdaughter or their son to a probability," Dayton says. "They want to
make suretheir government is doing absolutely everything conceivably
possible to make it100 percent safe to walk in the park or to or from
school." So even ifrecidivism were predictable, Dayton would say that
someone who is 99 percentguaranteed not to reoffend should nevertheless be
locked up for the rest of hislife. Just in case.
Itis precisely this reluctance to release anyone, no matter how unlikely
he is tocommit new crimes, that persuaded Judge Frank the MSOP is a system
of punishmentand preventive detention disguised as psychiatric treatment.
When no one isever deemed well enough to be released, the pretense that the
people confinedby the MSOP are patients rather than prisoners is so obvious
that even Daytoncan't be bothered to carry on the charade.

I couldnot believe what civil commitment was until my friend gave me the
info. Itindeed makes no sense to punish one who has paid his time.
Why in the world would you want to punish him now for what he has not or
MAY doin the future? How can you pre judge someone? I pray that those in
the JusticeSystem may see the light and abolish such a nonsense and
criminal system . Itis anything but just!

John Powers June 18, 2020Top Stories, updatesThe following post is from
a letter to Virginia State Delegate Jennifer Carroll-Foy from Dr. Bernida
Thompson. Dear Delegate Jennifer Carroll-Foy,You were great on the June
3rd Townhall. I appreciate your vigor for justice, especially for people of
color.. I am an African American citizen, and my family along with
countless others that are in your area are crippled by the unjust civil
commitment law which keeps our sons, fathers, husbands, and loved ones tied
up indefinitely with physical and psychological punishment for imaginary
future sex crimes that they might commit. I join the townhalls, and I
bring attention to the fact that a vast number of men are being misused to
create an underclass for the profit of civil commitment administration.
Many citizens committed their sex offense over 20 years ago. They served
and completed their sentences. They should be back with their families
making good of their lives in the community. Instead, the Sex Offender
Civil Commitment Law kicked in at the end of their sentence, and the men
were taken to the Virginia Center for Behavioral Rehabilitation, which is a
punitive shadow prison that is there to keep the men from committing future
crimes.. No one should be punished as guilty of a possible future crime.
Furthermore, research shows clearly that sex offenses have a much lower
recidivism rate than other crimes. The entire sex offender civil commitment
scheme is costing VA tax payers over $70 million dollars a year. This
money could be used for helping Virginia with the pandemic, supplying
victim services, restoring returning citizens, etc. Why are we allowing
the unscrupulous psychologists, attorney general's office, lawyers, and
VCBR administration to use this as their cash-cow for their own financial
prosperity and at the cost of these men and their families?As our delegate,
I am asking that you please help stop this deceitful scheme. Seriously
investigate the practice and the treatment of these men. Talk to the men
and their families. Please use your power and correct research data to get
these citizens released. We need a bill to end sex offender civil
commitment. These men have not committed any further crime. I would
appreciate your assigning someone from your staff to contact and work with
me to have this done.Sincerely,Bernida Thompson, Ed.D. Dr. Thompson is a

Good afternoon Jim,
Thank you for reaching out to Senator Morrissey regarding his bill to
abolish civil commitment in Virginia. Unfortunately, the bill did not pass
but the Senate Judiciary Committee did see the merit behind abolishing
civil commitment. After it was heard in Senate Judiciary, the committee
voted to send it to the Virginia Crime Commission in order to study the
best way to go about rescinding these authorities and how best to treat
those with sexually-related convictions.
Thank you again for your email.
Dear Sen. Joe Morrissey,
I just read an article about ending the unfair law in Virginia on Civil
Commitment for Sex Offenders.
I would like to know if anything has happened since the article was
written on Jan. 19, 2021?
The article is about Sen. Joe Morrissey and Del. Patrick Hope both
Democrats, are co-sponsoring legislation that would end state's authority
to civilly commit sex offenders.
I live in New Jersey, and I strongly feel that this law is very unfair.
My son has been locked up since 2009 for a sex offense in which he took a
plea deal, and which I believe he did not do. During his commitment my son
has been assaulted by other offenders as well as being sexually assaulted.
Every time something happens to him, he is placed in lockup until it is
investigated. When he is released from lockup he is now placed in a
different section and most of his belongs are either missing or broken when
given back to him. Therefore, as the article stated it seems that they are
keeping him committed because of his past crimes.
I strongly believe that if all the people that believe that this law need
to be changed, and speaks out about it, maybe something can be done, and
the public would learn what is happening. Especially when murders,
terrorists, and any other violent person who commits a violent assault
serves their sentence and then goes free. However not sex offenders
who has to serve his time and then is committed for an indefinite time. The
people need to know the cost to keep these offenders committed. If they new
this, they would be shocked to learn, that the average cost to maintain a
sex offender in a commitment facility is about $180,000 per year per
offender. There are about 4200 offenders being committed in the nation,
which is a total of $750,000,000.00 per year. I am sure that this money
could be used for something much better then civil commitment which doesn't
If I can help, in anyway please don't hesitated to contact me.
Thank you for taking the time to read this, stay safe and have a nice
