Any one who abuses a child or commits rape, should be treated no differently than a murderer. In order to be fair. They should maybe
be given a second chance. But that's it!!! All judged on a case by case basis. If they ever had a prior conviction, where they were convicted beyond a shadow of a doubt. Especially if the crime was an extremly violent one. I say no more chances! And, as we all know when many of these offender's are released back into society. They continue thier twisted ways.
Molesters Often Strike Again @ Fox News
But a number of sex offenders do know they can’t be trusted around kids. reportedly was so aware of his problem that he’d pleaded for help in the past, *Couey*, saying he was a danger to children because he couldn’t stop himself from sexually abusing them. That compulsion is what makes it next to impossible to “cure” chronic child molesters.
“They’re basically untreatable,” Schlesinger said. “They’re predatory, compulsive, repetitive offenders. These are very dangerous people, aroused by children. That’s part of their sexuality. It’s very, very difficult to change that.”
The abducter, molester and murderer of Jessica Lunsford.He Buried Her Alive By: John Gibson @ Fox news
Now Gibson is onto something. I agree!
So why in those cases where there are prior convictions. Is there even a bail set? Bail should be denied!!!
Duncan, who was raised in Tacoma, Wash., had spent more than a decade in prison for sexually assaulting a 14-year-old boy at gunpoint and was a fugitive at the time of his arrest for allegedly molesting a 6-year-old boy in Minnesota.
A registered high-risk sex offender, Duncan was released on $15,000 bail earlier this year after being charged with molesting the boy. Police in Fargo had been looking for Duncan since May, when he failed to check in with a probation agent.
So again my point. He should never been allowed bail. My God, he had spent 10 yrs.
in jail already. A hopeless case, in my eyes. The injustice here was not the amount of the bail. The injustice was the fact that he was given bail at all.
NO bail for these freaks!
Once convicted, death row!
Just my 2 cents.
