NEWTOWN AND THE ACLUnatics
Usually when the American Civil Liberties Union gets involved with an issue good law abiding people and society in general often get hurt one way or another. Whether it is defending illegal immigrants who have broken U.S. laws or working to defeat laws like SB452 in Connecticut earlier this year. Here is exhibit A:
A troubling revelation has broken regarding a mental health bill recently defeated in Connecticut during this calendar year. Had it passed, that bill could have possibly taken Adam Lanza off the streets so he would not have been free to commit his heinous act on December 14.
"Why didn't the legislation pass? Because the ACLU and other "civil liberties" groups and individuals cried foul. The ACLU in particular said 452 would "infringe on patients' privacy rights by expanding [the circle of] who can medicate individuals without their consent." They also said it infringed on patient rights by reducing the number of doctors' opinions necessary to commit someone to institutionalization. "-BIG GOVERNMENT
It's now known Lanza had mental health issues so much so that school officials at the Sandy Hook school notified security to keep an eye on him while he was a student at the school. But, groups like the ACLU don't want any scrutiny of people like Lanza once they are out in the world. Such a liberal ideology may have conspired to allow Lanza the "freedom" to orchestrate the massacre that occurred at the Sandy Hook school.
