DOC Referrals Pre & Post Dru: A Human Rights Indictment

Now let's look at the State's response to the Dru Sjodin abduction/murder.

Lets begin our review with the "busy graph" at Page 7 Mr. Donnay included in his presentation to the SOCCTF on November 1, 2012:

Let's examine how this shocking and damning piece of evidence indicts William Donnay and others.

  • Between 1994 and December 2003 (A 10-Year Period) Donnay's Risk Assessment Unit Forwarded 265 men to County Attorneys for potential sex offender civil commitment; 
  • Nearly 96% of these DOC Referrals resulted in committment: 258 of the 265 were committed;
  • In December 2003, Donnay's Unit Forwarded 236 men to County Attorneys for potential sex offender civil commitment;
  • Thirty percent of the Dec. 2004 Referrals (70 men ) were committed in this State-Sponsored Rampage in the wake of the high profile, preventable Dru Sjodin abduction/murder; 
  • In 2004, 52% of the 170 men referred by Donnay's Unit were committed. 88 men in 2004 were committed under SDP/SPP during the Peak of the Witch Hunt;
  • Since 2004, DOC referrals have averaged 135 per month as opposed to 25 per year Pre-Dru;
  • Since 2004, commitments have averaged 49 per year as opposed to less than 13 per year from 1991 to 2004.
  • In 2011, two men were committed, according to Donnay's graph. From overkill to too few?
This graph speaks for itself, and it corroborates and supports the allegations Michael Benson and Guy Greene made to KSTP-TV Ch. 5 Eyewitness News Investigative Reporter Mark Albert as I see it.

Here is how Dr. John Matthew Fabian described the State Response several years ago:

I hope Dr. Fabian or some other researcher with access to data will assess:

1) The recidivism rate of all men referred by Donnay's Unit for civil commitment from Dec. 1, 2003-December 31, 2011 and,
    
    A) Not Petitioned, and
    
    B) Petitioned, but not committed

I bet the recidivism rate is less than 8% across those populations with 8 year follow ups.
