Yeah I think they should be in jail forever, half of them get out and reoffend.

Yes and no. I don't think lack of punishment is really the problem, especially with sex offenders. They are usually looked on as the scum of the earth and serve full sentences more than any other criminals. I think the biggest problem is lack of rehabilitation while being punished. The rehabilitation sytem in our prisons is a joke. Protecting the community and punishing criminals are both very important, but I think that trying to get to the root of the problem and finding out why criminals do the things that they do is just important. Prevention of repeat offenses should be the number one goal.

Having said all this, I would be in favor of madatory chemical castration for repeat sexual offenders. I suppose that would be a harsher punishment.

I've always thought prison's number one function was to protect the community from criminals. Others seem to think that prison's number one fuction is to punish.

that was my first thought and i'm glad you agree

Yes. Currently too many rapists don't even get sent to jail or aren't prosecuted. There have been recent cases where that has happened in Australia. In one case the offender pleaded guilty and the judge decided he had been punished enough and wished him well in his future endeavours.

Yes, and I also agree with Unhailey about rehabilitation.

I think the priority should be a system where victims would not be afraid to come forward. I have no suggestions though...

unhailey luckystar107--What type of rehabilitation would you suggest?? Please don't say counseling because it doesn't work for many. There is not much you can do. They have an issue with power. The power of a helpless person begging for their life. Many of these offenders do it over and over. Abzurd hit it right on the head. The victims are afraid to come forward. They are afraid of the system and afraid of being brow-beat in open court. They don't want to be asked how many sexual partners they have had and what they were wearing and why they were out so late. They system runs them through the meat grinder and makes it difficult to get a strong conviction. Most of the time the victim doesn't want to go to court so the D A has no choice but to send them to a probation officer. What do you do?? It's sad!!!

With this sort of crime I believe in amputation

Clearly, I'm not a doctor so I don't know enough about exactly what motivates sex offenders and what rehabilitation treatments are effective. Although, I certainly don't think there is one miracle treatment for all people. Different people react better to different forms. I'm curious how you can say that rehabilitation doesn't work when, for all serious intents and purposes, we don't have much rehabilitation in our prison system.

Quite honestly, I've been looking for information on what treatments are most used for sex offenders and have yet to really find anything. I think the lack of information available proves my point.

I live in Iowa and we just recently had a case of a 10 year old girl that was taken from her home from a family friend, whose brother has sexually abused her before(i know the parents are crazy for letting the brother anywhere near their house) but they did not know he was a sex offender he was not listed on registry, anyways he took sexually assulted her and killed her. It is just awful and now the brother who abused her in the first place may get off because the other brother killed her and their key witness is now dead. The second brother was in prison once before for abusing a 13 year old girl and refused treatment while in prison and they say they can't force these sex offends to get treatment, then I don't think they should get out, no Congress is trying to pass a law for 2nd offence sex offenders to serve life but my thinking is why should they be allowed to offend a second time. I have 3 children and fear to let them even play in our yard my children nor myself should have t

to live with fear, sex offenders have too many rights

as far as that case in your home place is concerned, "it runs in the family"

Don't we already have the death penalty?! I mean, my gawd! We don't even need that!!!
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 7/4/05 - 10:54:21 PM EST (GMT-5)
I know for sure we should have harsher penalties for public litterers, excessive noise-makers and those cruel to animals. In fact, I would be glad if death penalty were introduced for this despicable crimes. I don't have any sympathy for most sex offenders either...
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 7/4/05 - 10:56:17 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes there should definitely be harsher punishments for sex offenders. It's sickening the sentences they get.
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 7/18/05 - 8:58:56 AM EST (GMT-5)
Without a shadow of a doubt.

Totally agree. My ex is in federal prison for that kind of stuff and I don't think they should let him out.
