I've never been comfortable with this. One thing not mentioned in the article is that if there aren't any beds open in the sex offender facilities when your prison term is up, you just start doing your indefinite commitment in prison ... with zero treatment, not that they really seem to be providing much treatment anyway. Now the UK is using the possiblity of indefinite commitment (I would guess about a 99% likelihood in this case) as a reason not to extradite someone accused of raping a 14-year-old girl and molesting two 11-year-olds. He'll never be admitted to the U.S. again anyway. Why not just agree to the UK's proposed terms, lock him up in Stillwater (former home of the James-Younger Gang in the late 1800s ), and then just ship him home to the UK or Ireland where they can put their own young girls at risk if they choose to let him run loose? Dumb local 'tards are so focused on the politically correct result that they're just letting the scum walk! CBS Local Minnesota: British Court Blocks Sex Criminal’s Removal To Minn.
