reporting that South Carolinians are spending $7.4 million annually to continue to incarcerate persons sentenced under their "sexual predator" statute. The money is nothing, but something seems out of balance.
No one should ever be at risk of being sexually abused. But something is wrong, uh...due process(?) when we choose to fix a punishment for a crime, then we continue the punishment after the completion of the sentence. Let's fix this mechanism, it's broken.
