Diagnosing criminals as suffering from mental deficiencies may be valid in a sense. But it doesn't mean they are mentally ill - just morally bankrupt cesspool dwellers. There is a difference.

On several occasions I've noticed comments about her good looks. I sure as heck don't see anything there that could qualify as good. To me, she isn't even "cute". I see a low rent bar fly that probably carries more STD than hillary or harris. She also adds more definition to the word stupid.

i'm not gonna comment on her attractiveness, but when she goes bug-eyed, she just gets a crazed look on her face like i've seldom seen. like she could be a lunatic fanatic killer. i'll bet she has body parts in her freezer...

She could be considered good looking, if it was not for her eyes... Those crazy eyes. They say run away.

I don't believe eyes are the window to the soul, but they can sure can show someone is bat-crap crazy.

All County Jails and Prisons have tons of mental health and drug treatment programs. Unfortunately, no one can force someone to get help if don't feel they need it or want to take advantage of it.
I think the tens of thousands, possibly 100k or more, of people who have been ordered to attend rehab would disagree with you. As to whether they actually work or not, well, that's a different story.

<--- THIS is one reason why there is so much recidivism and not because treatment is not available.
Actually, I think it's largely because of the underlying reason why people use and abuse chemical substances in the first place. Most rehabs attempt to address the root issues, but success rates range from less than 3% to roughly 65% for the absolute best programs.

As for recidivism, life is both hard and tough, and it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out those who get out of prison are expected to live like an average American but without anywhere near our income.

I don't know what the solution is for reducing recidivism, though. Not in one of my areas of expertise.

AOCs logic reminds me of the precursor to a dystopian future in many sci-fi novels.

"Criminals only need mental adjustment" -> The Government destroys all prisons and creates mental correction centers -> All societal infractions require a 'mental correction' -> The entire population is mentally corrected to conform to society.

Slippery slope? perhaps. ReductioAbsurdum? Maybe.

Suffice to say she is the most dangerous of those with a microphone as somebody might listen to her.

While I agree that she has some stupid ideas she's not completely wrong on this. Closing almost all mental health facilities was one of the dumbest things ever done. All those people didn't stop having mental health problems.

Listen to the clip, don't just read the headline.
Which party do you suppose pushed to close those facilities? The same party pushing to defund police? It's almost as if mucking up the 1st problem contributed to the 2nd problem.

Maybe we revise and improve how we treat mental patients and provide admitted patients services. Then we revise and improve how we police, especially the drug war.

Regardless of her relative intelligence, or lack thereof, I think she does and says what she is told by the people who put her in that office, the Justice Democrats. And statements like she made in that article are planned to do two things: 1) Pander to a certain demographic, AND 2) Be a part of the move toward socialism. the idea is to undermine the current justice system to make way for a different one. The idea about building mental health facilities might be a good idea, but I think it is a false flag. I don't think the radical left has any intention of building more mental health facilities unless it is to house their political opponents.

The point of jails and prisons is to keep dangerous people off the street and to punish them for their crimes. It is not to give the benefit of assistance they should have sought out before they committed crimes. Rehabilitation is a myth.

I think laughing at AOC is fun, but I also think it is dangerous to underestimate what she says. She may not be all that bright, but she has a machine behind here that knows what it's doing.
As a 23 year Army Veteran and a former Corrections Officer (10 yrs), I could not agree more with jmf552. AOC, like biden, are mere figureheads. When they speak, don't listen to what they're actually saying, but rather the intent at it's very worst. That is what they truly strive for.

It really is so simple. Repeal all laws. Then no crime since there is no such thing if everything is legal. I might run this past AOC to verify my thinking.

"And no matter how dumb people think she is, she won her district by a HUGE margin. This is what the left wants. She is their future whether we like it or not."

Same way Biden won the election?

she won with 71% of the vote. AOC is EXACTLY the person the people of Queens and the Bronx want in office to represent them. make no mistake about that - she is not an accident; no election was stolen there

I agree 100%. . . Therefore. . .
The way to stop poverty is to stop giving away "free" money, food stamps, welfare and housing.
