Police use ‘immediate detentions’ to arrest people for more than 90 days

MassPrivateI

The police state is creating an entirely new incarceration system, ‘immediate detentions’.

What are ‘immediate detentions’ you ask?

Since 2014 Indiana police have been using ‘immediate detentions’ to justify arresting hundreds of people.  

“In fact, this year’s 178 immediate detentions — instances when individuals expressed a desire to injure themselves or others due to their mental state — have already surpassed the 157 instances in 2014.”

According to Indiana law, police can immediately arrest and detain anyone for 24 hours. (For more information read House Bill 1130.) By anyone, I mean those people a police officer claims are mentally unstable.

Could the police officer arresting people indefinitely, also be mentally unstable?

The fact is hundreds of police officers kill themselves each year. The National Alliance on Mental Illness and the Suicide Prevention Resource Center have pages devoted to law enforcement suicide prevention. Law enforcement suicides are so prevalent, even the International Association of Chiefs of Police has devoted a page to it. They even provide ‘sample suicide prevention materials’ and ‘sample funeral protocols’ to police departments.

Fyi, police officers are also asked to ‘voluntarily’ submit to annual mental health checks.

“leaders called the initiative (immediate detentions) special and believe it has the potential to be a national model.” 

Last year, I warned everyone that Police in Texas had begun giving ‘mental health assessments’ to anyone that gets arrested.

“Once at jail, anyone who is arrested will be screened for mental illness.The jail will send those results to judges to consider when setting bond. The county will also start using a risk assessment tool to arrive at an estimated level of danger and flight risk posed by each defendant.”

“Defendants’potential release from jail will hinge on mental health and public safety considerations,not just the criminal charges they face and a financial ability to pay bond.”

‘Immediate detentions’ to become national police model

Last month, Mayor Scott Fadness said “leaders called the initiative (immediate detentions) special and believe it has the potential to be a national model.” 

Last year, I warned everyone that Police in Texas had begun giving ‘mental health assessments’ to anyone that gets arrested.

Prisons serve as mental health care facilities:

Like most of the country, Indiana’s jails are the“default place” to put people with mental health issues.

Police want to jail people indefinitely 

Last year the Indiana police claimed, that ‘immediate detentions’ only allowed them to arrest people for 24 hours so what do you think happened next?

They began looking into expanding their powers to hold people for ninety days.

“The governor’s drug task force explored the issue Tuesday. The options available under Indiana’s involuntary treatment law are immediate detention, which is 24 hours; emergency detention (72 hours);temporary commitment (up to 90 days); and regular commitment, which is more than 90 days.”

Police are asking family and friends to help jail people indefinitely…

“Remember, treatment providers and law enforcement are now asking questions to determine if the person meets the “legal” criteria to warrant an involuntary psychiatric/crisis evaluation. Immediate Detention: (initiated by law enforcement for involuntary hospitalization); Emergency Detention: (initiated by a petitioner such as family/friend/treatment provider; a Physician/Psychiatrist; and signed and ordered by a county judge.)”

You read that correctly, your family and friends can have you arrested.

“If the person in crisis refuses voluntary placement, and his health care provider recommends hospitalization, but no judge is available – It is difficult to guarantee hospitalization for a person who meets all the legal and clinical criteria for involuntary hospitalization without the judge’s order (Emergency Detention). The other option, and the option we often recommend in the presence of immediate danger, is the Immediate Detention. Immediate Detention can only be initiated by a law enforcement officer. ” 

A 2007 ‘Mental Health’ SlideShare shows how police use a ‘immediate detentions’ to arrest people indefinitely.

What they’re really saying is, if the police or DA finds a sympathetic doctor anyone can be placed on INDEFINITE commitment.

 “Neither local police nor any state agency collects or reviews data on how often officers detain citizens to be evaluated for mental illness.”

Nothing says Police State, quite like the NDAA Act and ‘immediate detentions’.

Students are reporting depressed classmates to the police
According to an article in Govtech students are also looking for depressed or suicidal classmates to report to the police.

Authorities are forcing students into spying for the police…

“Every 11th-grade student at Fishers High School was required to go to the auditorium for a ‘depression’ presentation.

As I mentioned earlier, it’s not just your friends and classmates you have to worry about it’s the clergy too.

Where does it stop? Our government already conducts risk assessments on K-12 students and college students.

‘Immediate detentions’ and ‘mental health assessments’ make perfect sense, if you want to incarcerate more Americans.
