Gregory Girard: Political Prisoner. Massachusetts resident Gregory Girard has never been formally charged with a crime, let alone convicted of one. Yet after spending four months in jail, he will spend the next four years as a ward of the court.
Girard’s legally obtained firearms will remain in the possession of the thieves in uniform who stole them on February 9, the same day he was kidnapped by a SWAT team. He will undergo involuntary psychiatric evaluation and treatment, including the administration of psychotropic drugs.
If it is deemed “necessary” by any of the legal or therapeutic apparatchiks who are now in charge of his life, Girard will be taken into custody for “in-patient treatment.”
This would almost certainly occur if Girard were once again to express the unacceptable political views that resulted in his four month imprisonment, to wit: The Régime ruling us will eventually send paramilitary goon squads to confiscate legally owned firearms and imprison those who own them.
Because possession of such views made Girard a “danger to the community,” a paramilitary strike force was sent to seize his guns, and he was summarily imprisoned.Under the terms of a “continuance without a finding” announced by Salem District Court Judge Richard Mori, Girard will avoid prison only if his conduct and attitude meet with the approval of people who can consign him to the psihuska at whim.

Given the Evil Empire’s eager rush to be just like the original Soviet Union, it’s hardly surprising that they would adopt the Soviet practice of imprisoning political dissidents in “mental hospitals”.
The article contrasts Girard’s punishment for being right about the government with a case from the same state in which Gestapo agents murdered someone at one of their Checkpoint Charlie reenactments for no particular reason and (as usual) got away completely unpunished.
