Criminals Have More Rights Than The Allegedly Ill - In Florida
I’d love to hear the WHY explained
Who has more rights - a person accused of a crime? Or a person accused of potentially being ill?
In Florida the person who is accused of a crime generally has more rights.
That’s because Florida’s forced treatment law - 381.00315 - allows the State Health Officer broad authority to examine, test, treat, quarantine and isolate folks with no oversight.
Most criminals get treated better.
In general for a criminal to be held a judge must be involved from very early in the process.
Except in very limited cases the government can’t just throw someone in jail and ignore them.
But the potentially sick in Florida?
It seems they could just be put in quarantine or forced into treatments with no judge, no jury.
Basically in Florida a law sits on the books saying the state owns your body.
They couldn’t get away with this for criminals.
But for everyone else - including hard tax paying citizens - the government says if you might be sick they’ll do whatever they want to you.
How are your political leaders justifying not getting around to fixing this law? Tell us so we can learn.
