Bottom line? We have sentencing laws for a reason.
But besides that, one of the men being held by "civil commitment" was deemed unfit for trial. Which means he's been charged but never convicted because he's too mentally unstable to withstand trial. So they're holding him in a federal prison indefinitely even though he's never been convicted.
That's bullshit. Even more bullshit than holding people passed their release date.
I don't care what the crime. There are sentencing laws for a reason. And civil commitment is unconstitutional.
