Prison profiteering is spreading throughout America like an airborne disease. Care must be given to avoid civil and human rights abuses under this new psychiatric law. Psychological research studies have proved repeatedly that police perceive black youths as being perspective criminals. In the absence of stringent oversight, the new police powers to detain people who are not suspected of having done any crime whatsoever could be misused against minority populations and poor people.
Consider what happened to a police officer in New York when he reported corruption in the New York Police Department. This could also happen in other places to other people: "NYPD Officer Sent To Psych Ward By Superiors After Reporting Corruption"
According to the news video above, people who are detained under this law in Arizona are taken for psychological evaluations and not to jails or prisons, where 1.25 million mentally ill Americans wrongly endure incarceration as criminals. The law should state that at no point will people be jailed in the absence of crime. Pre-crime arrests are immoral and illegal according to the U.S. Constitution and Human Rights Law.
