Berglin: Punishing sex offenders a "mistake"

Apparently, if you’re a left wing DFLer from Minneapolis, it’s easy to put a price on safety.

Sen. Linda Berglin, DFL-Minneapolis, says more convicted sex offenders are being committed to state hospitals because of fallout from "the Rodriguez case." She was referring to Alfonso Rodriguez Jr., a registered sex offender charged with kidnapping and murdering Dru Sjodin in late 2003, after he was released from prison.

"That's the most expensive mistake state government has made in some time," said Berglin, chairwoman of the budget committee that oversees state hospitals.

I didn't know protecting Minnesotans from sex offenders was a "mistake." I sure hope Berglin can explain her reasoning to the many victims of the most heinous of crimes.

If this was a reading comprehension class, you'd probably get an F. Clearly she said that the mistake is that too many convicted sex offernders are being sent to STATE HOSPITALS. This is very costly. Where in there did she imply that they should not be locked up?

Well, this ain't reading comprehension , it's Politics 101.

What would you rather do with sex offenders? Put them back on the streets because they are a valued member of society?

You liberals sicken me.

Jesus fucking Christ. She is saying that it is a waste of money to put sex offenders in state hospitals when they really shouldn't be. Where the fuck does she say "Put them back on the streets"?

This is going to be a really really bad cycle for your party. You can stay in denial, but come November 2006, I'll be here rubbing it in your stupid face.

I can't wait to see the look on your face when Hatch is soundly defeated by Pawlenty and Jeff Johnson takes down Matt Entenza and Lois Quam's millions.
