    WA - Reoffenders while at Mcneil Island continue to reoffend

    http://www.q13fox.com/news/kcpq-0128...tory?track=rss

    "Shocked lawmakers learned Thursday in Olympia that another eight sexually violent predators are about to be charged for having child porn while locked up at the state's Special Commitment Center on Mcneil Island.

    That's on top of the seven men who were found by federal investigators to have somehow got their hands on child porn while at McNeil Island last September.

    Thursday's revelation came during testimony by Kelly Cunningham, superintendent of the state's Special Commitment Center, during a Senate Human Services and Corrections Committee hearing.

    He was pushing for the passage of Senate Bill 6308, which would allow residents to only have computer access if the Department of Social and Health Services found it necessary for their treatment. For instance, if they needed to look for work or keep in contact with supportive family members."



    IMO, no SO is going to waste away and die (bummer, I know) if they don't have computer access. Supportive families can write letters and job searches can be done in other ways. You give these guys a computer and they'll find the child porn every single time, in a heartbeat. They'll crawl over the hot coals of a firewall to access it.

    What's ironic is that as disgusting as this is, think about how useful it could be to put these pervs under computer surveillance and yank up child porn sites left and right, as well as determining HOW they're searching for it. It seems like a missed learning opportunity for LE!

    They're not quite sure how they are getting it but here's a link to an earlier story:

    I just don't see how having access to a computer is an inalienable right.

    Oh good grief! It's not rocket science to figure out how it's getting in -- especially if they've known about the problem for months!!

    Why didn't they get a computer forensics team in as soon as it happened the first time???

    That's a start and could give them plenty of detail to know where to look for how the CP is getting in.

    Something's really fishy here.
    What we are doing is just a drop in the ocean.
    But if that drop was not in the ocean,
    I think the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

    Angry Sex Offenders Reoffend From Special Treatment Center

    McNeil Island is home to Washington's "Special Commitment Center". This is a facility I am guessing keeps you locked up while trying the "help you" after you sexually assault men, women and children. One would think maybe this is a good thing?

    Nope. The conviction of Lawrence Williams aged 52 on charges of crack cocaine distribution inside the center opened a can of worms for the treatment center.

    O.K. folks ya ready? Williams used his phone privledges to get on chat lines. Yes siree. He sure must be charming because he used women to bring in the drugs, alcohol and pornography and violent video games.

    A Nurse at the facility was also conned by Williams and mind ya this is an educated woman here who gave him $250,000 of which he used to woo other women. Wooing from a sex offender facility. A guy in the mailroom intercepted packages of porn, drugs and other stuff for Williams. People got fired, women got in trouble and Williams he's only racked up more charges.

    An update on our buddies over at the Civil Commitment Center in WA. I think I'd like to have a word with the Director of Personnel. I'm starting to think that the warden mis-read the mission statement or definition of "civil commitment". It's a legal term, not the way the inmates should be treated. I find this outrageous!!

    Sex, drugs and child porn at McNeil Island

    "A 52-year-old man confined at a state center for violent sexual predators has been convicted of smuggling drugs into the center as a former employee there awaits sentencing.

    Formerly a resident of the state-run Special Commitment Center on McNeil Island, Lawrence Williams was convicted Friday on crack cocaine distribution charges following allegations that he conspired with a center employee to smuggle drugs into the center.

    In a statement issued following Williams' conviction, federal prosecutors asserted Williams also directed pornographic videos over the phone from the center and convinced a Special Commitment Center nurse with whom he was romantically involved to give him $250,000.

    Prosecutors say Williams used that money to woo other women over the phone and to pay for drugs and pornography to be smuggled into the center......"
