Execute Paedophile Killers.

  1. christopherchance profile image61
    christopherchanceposted 7 years ago

    During the years I spent behind bars in foreign prisons I met many child sex killers. They were all without remorse except for their own self-pity. Some, not all are mentioned in my books.
    I am not a psychologist, nor am I qualified in any �shrink� capacity, but having met these awful men and being a father myself, my conclusions are that they should be put to death immediately after being proven guilty.
    I understand people who think execution is the easy way out for the child sex killer, but we need to consider the loved ones of the victim and the mental anguish they endure daily as they think about what goes on behind bars.
    I will now tell you about things the media seems not to want to reveal or besmirch their pages with.
    Nonce (paedophiles) lifers accept their sentences more easily than other prisoners. The life sentence is assimilated and made more acceptable mentally because they are frightened of the consequences of being released back into a hostile society. This fear is a buffer and helps them to endure their long sentence.
    Their lifestyle in prison is much better than, let�s say, a homeless individual who lives rough on the streets of London. They have many home comforts like television and radio, and at least three good meals a day. They have a comfortable room which they can arrange to their liking and they furnish it with familiar items from visiting relatives.
    The unpalatable vision for the victim�s loved ones are the homosexual partnerships they form with their ilk. Child sex killers performing anal sex and oral sex with each other whilst visualising their bestial acts on the children they killed to achieve sexual gratification.
    How would you feel if you had recently buried the sad remains of your child after he or she had been mutilated and slaughtered by a nonce that is now living his life in surroundings they accept and enjoy? I know how I would feel.
    I have had to endure the company of these evil men because in foreign prisons they are not segregated like they are in the UK. I have witnessed them enjoying themselves and making the best of their lot in prison. They have wanted to talk to me because I am different, I am an Englishman and they have never met an Englishman before. I have looked into their evil eyes and I am proud to say that I have blackened a few of them. I have beaten some of them to within an inch of their lives and for the life of me; I couldn�t find any remorse, even though they have never harmed my children. So how must a victim�s loved ones feel?
    If you are a prison psychologist you probably disagree with me because if they started executing these creatures, you wouldn�t have so many nutters to play with. Also, you may like to remember this: they do not say the things to you what they say to the likes of me. They will never reveal to you what makes them tick, but I know� the relentless pursuit of brutal, ripping, child sex makes them tick, and if ever they get out of prison they will strike again.
    If you read my prison writing you will discover that I am in no way politically correct, but I do know what is right when it comes to child sex killers: put them to death so the victim�s family can get some closure and grieve without visualising masturbating and humping nonce queers behind prison walls.
    It is my opinion that nonces are not frightened of the consequences of getting caught. It is time to change that lack of fear and I say, �Put them to death.�

      There have been societies through out history where child sex was perfectly acceptable.The Romans kept children on leashes and called them mi-noes.They shared these children at partys and orgies.
      That being said here's what I think.Child murderers should be put in the Electric chair with the voltage turned down low so it takes weeks to fry them...

      it is hard to think of these people still breathing, still living and even finding enjoyment in life when they so brutally torture, assault and finally kill their victims and toss them away like a used Kleenex.

      snuffing out an innocent, helpless life and for what? their own depraved gratification.

      the penalties for child rape (PROVEN, not assumed, to satisfy the 'faulty testimony' crowd) should be a lot stronger than they are. we call these men "sick" when they are just plain evil. when we say they are 'sick' it's saying they suffer from some malady over which they have no control.

      BS.

      they make the choice to go hunt down their victims.

      they make the choice to plan how best to spirit them away or coerce them or whatever they need to do to get them alone, and then to continue the abuse.

      i have no empathy for them.

      it sickens me greatly to think that these people receive what amounts to a slap on the wrist. if you sympathize with them, imagine the reality....some big hairy smelly perverted slug overpowering, terrorizing and forcing inexplicable, incomperhensible ugliness, pain and shame upon a tiny, helpless child. that ought to enlighten you a bit.

        Even in those countries which conduct trials without simple forensic evidence? There are still countries where a judge, and no jury, can decide that you are guilty just by not liking the look of you. In my opinion it is DNA evidence = Death. Anything other than DNA or video evidence of child abuse is unproven.

      Why stop there?  How about drug dealers that take the youth away from so many by selling them their poison?  What about the casino owners in Vegas that feed peoples gambling addictions that tear apart families and enslave their children in poverty? Can we also put to death the alien migrant workers for their insistent law breaking invasions that make our youth lose out on the jobs the alien workers take?  I've got an even better one.  How about we execute leaders that take us into senseless wars for greed and conquest and leaving grieving widows and fatherless children in their wake to grow up without knowing the love of their parent?

      No my friend you can't pick and choose by your own morality who lives and dies from the crimes they commit.  That is why each case is prosecuted and dealt with on its' own merit.

      Before you execute anyone make sure, very sure, they are absolutely guilty. There have been people accused of this crime that, years later after serving time, turned out to be innocent. There was a case where a child psychologist had actually tampered with a child's testimony to convict an innocent man. She had maniplulated the child into saying what was in fact not true because she was convinced of the man's guilt.

          society administering justice to a depraved freak who kidnaps a tiny small child, uses her (or him) for his own twisted purposes against their will while they scream and cry in pain and terror for mommy or daddy until they finally die in a despicable fashion, their tiny defiled bodies thrown in a shallow grave or on the side of a mountain or a ditch somewhere is "as bad as them"?

        Hmm...okay. So what do we do with mothers who ritually mutilate their male babies' foreskins? Slice off their clitoral hoods and labium, cook it with eggs, and force them to eat it?

        Your kind of thinking makes me sick. There is injustice everywhere that people are perfectly okay with. For example..foreskin is ugly..therefore we think it is okay to chop off part of a baby's penis. Is it okay to chop off their ears too?

        There are a lot of people in this world who deserve to have their genitals nailed to a shed that is on fire. People with mental illness (like child molestors) need to be helped or locked away from kids.

        I was molested by a 15 year old girl when I was 6. I don't want her shot or mutilated. I want her helped. People are always pro-torture and pro-murder when it's somebody they don't like. I would love to see some of these people like caraval get framed for child molestation.

        Let's then see how cruel they want the punishments.

          Being molested by your babysitter I'm sure is a very disturbing experience and sorry you went through it, at 15 she should of gotten some help if she was reported?  If she wasn't, chances are she is still doing it...I'm assuming of course your older now.

    Yes, let's also execute mentally challenged people since they are unpredictable and generally don't have a benefit to society.

    Let's execute black and hispanic males as soon as they get arrested the first time since their recurrence of crime and violent crime are 60%.

    Let's also execute Mormons since some of them marry underage girls.  Not most of them but since we won't know who will, just execute them all.

          Well, don't worry, Tim...you are right...they don't get killed here because of their label.  But from what I understand, they are "taken care of" in prison.  Look and jeffrey dahmer, as predicted, he didn't live long at the hands of his inmates now did he?  From what I understand the guards kind of disappear for a smoke at the time they "accidentally" release the sex offenders and child killers into the "yard".  So, don't worry, close your eys and take your nap because these bad boys are being taken care of so YOUR children won't be messed up by one of them.

          I want you to imagine one thing in your mind.....when you hear of a child who has been molested or killed, on TV.  And knowing that children are narcissistic...meaning they think everything is a result of what they do or have done....Imagine what that little girl or boy is thinking...have you EVER done that. Sat there, closed your eyes and just imagined in graphic detail what that little baby must have been thinking when the violation was occurring.  Imagine in your head that child saying "what did I do wrong."  Go ahead, imagine that...YOUR little girl with her curly little blonde hair screaming in her mind, "what did I do wrong, maybe if I hadn't of screamed at DAD yesterday, this bad man wouldn't be doing this to me."  Once you have done that, don't talk about the mentally ill and their crimes.  You rape anyone or murder anyone (especially a child AND INCLUDING the elderly)...that all goes out the window, baby.  We're playin' by a whole different ballgame.

        The reason is that a high proportion are probably convicted without real evidence, many of these countries still do not use DNA evidence and rarely give common folk a fair trial. If it was your brother, or your father, being executed without a trial or real evidence (by Western standards) then you would not be calling for all peados *cough*... alledged peados.... to be executed. Innocent people die, even in developed countries. There are also many people who are guilty, but remorseful, and whom are successfully rehabilitated.

        I do agree with whoever just said that prison has become too easy though; for all criminals. No prisoners should have TVs, dvds, videos, football teams. They should get a mattress, standard prison uniform, a toilet and cheap nasty food. It would make them think twice about going back inside. I would bring back chain gangs and stuff too, make them earn their keep.

          The Insanity defense is one of the most overused defenses by any offender. Nadal the KILLER at Fort Hood is already ramping that one up . Not to mention statistically 70% of all pedophiles will reoffend upon release. Not only have they molested , they have killed the spirit of a child who will never be the same after that offense .They are the most disgusting of all offenders ! And as a grandfather to be I think this planet is better off without them .

          I'm not debating any laws.  How would you feel if, when you were 13 years old a man over powered you and raped you, while you screamed for help no one came.  Maybe a couple of weeks or months go by before they catch him.  Then you learn he's done this to others, only they didn't get away with their life.  Would a prison sentence of 10 or 15 years be okay with you?

We just have to wait till the scum hits home to our higher ups rather than us everyday folks that crime happens daily.  Stop thinking about the scum that commited the act and start thinking about the child or woman or Elder that was just rapped,molested and killed.

                  In other countries, spitting and graffitti gets you caned, stealing gets your hand cut off and death to all else...don't know if it is working there, but it would deter me.

          Well that is a bright statement...again totally off track, no body...except of course a couple of idiots have brought up...muslims, mormons, jews, christians, whites, blacks,hispanics and even people who have the username caraval?  Just because they have a different race, religion, lesbian/gay, whatever else you want to throw in there does not make them or myself a paedophile, child rapist, child murderer or anything else.
          My thoughts about this subject have been made very clear...I was a victim of child molestation for a lot of years by a step-father who also molested my older brother and beat him so bad he was hospitalized and was removed from the home, we weren't so lucky, this man was always there...my mother of course was the biggest contributor to our demise by allowing him the opportuity to come back in the home everytime he was released from jail. He is know in Jail for murdering a child...I hope he rots there!
          I vowed to myself that no man or woman would touch my children and I vow the same when it comes to my grandchildren...I would gladly spend the rest of my life in Prison if anyone layed one hand on my child...I would get blood on my hands for that reason.
          Over the top...maybe, but if you lived my life, maybe you might have a bit of a clue how awful and sick these people are and how they need to be removed from society and I do mean permanetly, our Justice system is just to screwed up to keep them away from our "Innocent".
          If they feel I need to be executed for my vengence I would except my fate...hopefully I will never have to prove it, because that would mean MY child or grandchild was hurt. 
          Ellie Nessler spent her life in prison for killing the man who molested her Son...I didn't blame her 1 bit and believe she got screwed by the system...but she never regreted her deed, neither would I.
          So as you scrapping the bottom of that "stupid barrel" you might want to think before you make those idiotic statements...especially when you have no clue how the acts of these people have changed the lives of many.
          Oh...putting them in the shed...nailing their dicks to a log...giving them a very dull knife...starting the shed on fire...and shooting them between the eyes if they got out, I decided that when I was 13 years old...at 46, I wouldn't change a thing.

    Anything sexual against anyone not willing that is proven.  Death, kill them.  Ever think we let to many things go by without too much of a punishment?  It wouldn't take sex offenders long to figure out, get caught, get dead.  It's the only way to straighten it out.

    Those who think I'm wrong, think about a victim for a minute.  First kiss, first love, a relationship is all going to suffer for their entire result because of their past.  No one has the right to do this to another person.  Kill those that think they do.

      Our society is so backwards.  Everyone gives women a cool name for having sex wtih younger men.  We call them "cougars" and everyone thinks that is a cool name.  We here it on TV all the time.

      But a man who has sex with younger women is called a pedophile.

      No, I don't have children but I have nieces and nephews.  I also have adult relatives.  If someone murdered my adult relatives, I wouldn't want the death penalty.

      Most of the people who want to execute people are probably Christians, right?  Yet, they always forget about that one commandment.

      Execution has PROVEN NOT to deter criminals, folks.  Look it up.

      We live in America.  This will never be an acceptable practice.  Nothing you guys can do about it but live in China but you'll probably be executed for looking up the wrong stuff on the internet.

My niece was molested and raped when she was nine and when we had seen him in court, I certainly did not act like a Christian! The thought of someone touching a child makes me sick and as for the "Cougar" the women is normally over 40 and the man is usually in his 20's to 30's cougars do not normally mess with Children!

      Don't be fooled by Tim or his statements. Yes, he lives in America, but isn't old enough to encompass all what's entailed.

      He is looking it from one perspective and not all perspectives.

      How ever, taking a life isn't morally right, regardless of what they have done, by the Justice System in America is flawed and severely needs to be revamped before this can become a real issue.

      And, TIM? I'm not defending your position, so don't think I am, but I'm also not agreeing with those who are here, because I'm of the understanding that there is an underlying cause to many problems and I'm not willing to pass it off as what I've been TOLD, but rather on factual evidence that backs up underlying problems.

      So, with that said- I'm outta here. Later people, Thank you for the knowledge I've learned from your posts and I'll be on my way.

      Enjoy all.

      LOL  good point.  Here is a link to a NYT article:  http://truthinjustice.org/922death.htm

      Most states that DO NOT have the death penalty have lower murder rates than the national average.

      Most states that DO HAVE the death penalty have higher murder rates than the national average.

      So, maybe if you do execute pedophiles, more will come out of the woodwork in the states that have the death penalty.  Never know!

    Also, children's testimony in court isn't used because children make up memories that they firmly believe really happened, especially with police interrogation.

    What if you simply hugged a young relative but they somehow thought it was more than hugging?  You get prosecuted over a child's story.  This has happened before too.  When the child gets older, they say their parents or police made them say the molestation happened.

        I look at the death penalty as being a way of getting that person off the street, but not as a wake up call to all others who might commit the same or similar crimes.  Because you are right.  It is not a deterrent and the reason it is not a deterrent is because the crime is/was apparently worth the punishment.  So be it....I guess.

      If you do a little reading up on capital punishment, you'll find that the academic studies nearly all cast doubt on the deterrent effect of capital punishment. That leaves two reasons for punishing pedophiles--revenge (an eye for an eye) and incarcerating them to prevent them from repeating their offense which most of them are very likely to do.

      You're right - but I really think a lot of the focus on this issue comes from media (such as Fox News, but also almost all the other news programs) which look for sensational stuff to get everyone's attention.  I think even, that the people who bring up the subject may want attention for themselves.  I also think that people who are obsessed with such subjects often are wondering about their own urges, deep down urges, and looking to see what other people think about the wrongness of what they are feeling.  They sometimes get off on that.  I know that I, for instance, when forced to imagine the scenes of horrible molestations by the media or others trying to convince me about the death penalty feel violated in a way.  I am not all that sensitive, I just don't want these graphic images all the time,and I don't need to be reminded that there are bad people out there doing awful things.  Let's all lighten up on each other.

    The one real issue I see with making molestation and child rape a capitol offense is what it will do to the crime. If you hurt someone and know that if you're caught you will spend life in prison or the death penalty, then why not just kill the person and get rid of your accuser and potential witness, or even destroy the body and dispose of evidence. Now take a pedophile, which legally speaking may be a person who has never touched a kid, but that is in the details. Take this person who molests a child. Right now he may get a few years in prison or on probation depending on the state. Now that is a slap on the wrist, the offender knows it, and so does society. Now take his crime and give it the death penalty or life in prison, now this offender has every reason to just kill this child outright and dispose of the witness, and evidence. Why is it do you think that so often now when we hear about a kidnapping we usually assume the victim is dead, because most likely they are. When kidnapping, and murdering a child have similar if not equal sentences then it makes more sense to the kidnapper to just kill his victim, rather then keep them and risk them getting loose and testifying against them.

    This may not be pleasant to consider or think about but if you're going to advocate the death penalty for crimes like this you need to be realistic with yourself and weigh the total effect and outcome not only for the offender but for potential future victims. Now if we're serious about doing this then I say we start in the churches with all the priests and pastors that can't leave the choir boys alone. let's send a message that no one is exempt.

      Jaycee Dugard was kidapped in Tahoe and brought to Antioch, Ca, she lived for 18 years at the will of her kidnapper and his wife.  The scum even fathered her 2 children.  He had already been convicted of kidnapping and abuse to a child and was let back out on our streets.  The biggest question...Why was he released the 1st time?  He was ankle monitored, was visited by his parole officer, neighbors called the police in regards to the make-shift housing in his back yard...nobody followed through, even when his monitor showed out of range.

      Sandra Cantu...an 8 year old little girl who was raped, murdered and stuffed in a suitcase and thrown in a levy, by a woman with a 5 year old daughter no less.  This woman worked in a church as a teacher, her father is the Pastor at the church, yet she found some kind of joy hurting this precious child.  I hope she gets the death penalty, as I hope Jaycees kidnappers will also.

      I don't want these people walking our streets...no room in the prisons, then we need to get rid of them...

      Slaps on the wrist, ankle monitoring, regular check ups by the parole system does not work...period!

        Why are you explaining all this to me I have said they need to be locked up ten times already, but unlike the fantasies some of you seem to be living I've also explained the reality of why they're not and what needs done to fix it. get over yourself and your own righteousness, and learn to read the whole thing before you mouth off with an ill informed retort. Go ahead and kill them all or do you have the balls to do it yourself and become a murderer too, or are you one of those big mouths who talks good but expects someone else to get their hands dirty. If you think they should die then cowboy up and start executing some local sex offenders like you say they deserve then we'll execute you too after we try you for murder and convict you, would that satisfy your moral superiority or will people like you not be happy until EVERYONE you deem unacceptable is gone? Where do you stop when the pedophiles are gone, and the murderers and rapist, do we switch over to the manslaughter people?

        Wanting someone killed and doing it yourself is no different. If you can't summon the strength to pull the trigger yourself then don't ask someone else to do it for you. Either way you are still a murderer.

            Hey I agree with you, I'm just saying there are other issues needing addressed so we can keep these people locked up one way or the other. Killing someone is not what TV makes it out to be, whether its justified or not it carries a huge psychological burden that never goes away trust me on this. I am outraged at this growing epidemic too, but taking the easy way is not going to solve the issue at all, only delay it and shift it into other areas. The whole system needs overhauled much more then any healthcare bill or bank stimulus, but that would not be as profitable for some would it?

    If you want to keep molesters, killers, and rapists off the streets, communities will have to start taking a more proactive role in drug abusers lives, in rehab, and education. Right now prisons are overflowing with drug offenders and mentally ill inmates who are being dumped into the system because there's literally no where else to put them. In my state it is a growing and recognized problem and is drawing alot of attention. Budget cuts mean that by the fall of 2010, 2800 inmates must be released from the state prisons. Those that have been chosen are drug offenders mostly, why because jailing them is addressing a symptom, not the problem. They break the law to support a habit, want them to stop then address the habit. This is not being achieved in jail, and more importantly that's not what jail is for. It's for punishing serious offenses not babysitting the ones the community would rather hide or turn a blind eye to, because it takes effort and compassion to return them to a right way of living.

    Well said Scott. A few years ago we had one of those offenders here. On his release he abducted a young girl from the publics eye during the County Fair, molested her and cut off her head and disposed of it. The head has never been found. He is in prison awaiting his fate. Death sentence does not deter some.
    On another note, many Christians are against the death sentence, the Amish, Mennonites, and many others too along with myself after maturing and really examining the history of it all. After all, drawing and quartering an individual did not deter many victims either. Death will claim all in the end. We just need to spend our tax dollars on incarceration of offenders. That's my thoughts anyway. Peace.

      It's just my suggestions based on personal experience. I spent a year in prison for threatening a man who stole money from me, and I got a bigger sentence then guys who beat their wives, abused their kids, and robbed convenient stores. Was it fair, hell no, but it was the way it was. I noticed that the place I was at was filled with drug offenders and all they did was talk about what they would do when they got out to score another hit. In that year I saw seventeen fellow kitchen workers get released and come right back again and again. Meanwhile a high profile sex offender in my area plead guilty to seven counts of rape and molestation, and he was given three years probation, why you ask? Because the state prison was overcrowded and the county jail did not have the security precautions to insure his safety. At one time this jail did have a segregation wing for cases just like these but due to overcrowding it has been turned into a general pop housing dorm. The county wants this man punished, and so does the state but they also know that if he is endangered or harmed while in custody they are the ones liable and will face lawsuits and prosecution. Welcome to America, we scream for justice then turn our backs when its time to do our fair share and blame the government for failure.

      There is no easy answer for this problem. If a person is a repeat offender and convicted by DNA or other conclusive evidence then he should be punished but how? We execute because it used to be a deterrent but not any more, its not even expedient today, it could take 20-30 years to execute an inmate. So what do you do, neuter them exile them? Nothing really seems top solve the issue. Except stopping the problem before it begins.

      It changes when communities as a whole realize it is their responsibility to teach members of that community what is acceptable and not. We don't watch out for each other anymore or really even care when something happens, we just thank God it wasn't us or our kids. There was a time when a kid could play outside his house on the street and have a whole neighborhood watching him, now we are told to but out and mind our own business then blamed for negligence when things go wrong. We take our drug addicts and lock them up because they represent our failures as a society to address the issues at hand, hopelessness, denial, joblessness, disease, crime. Drugs and alcohol are ways to escape reality and a world that has lost meaning for the abuser. Instead of trying to fix what it is that they hate about themselves and life we just compound it, and watch them spiral out of control into self destruction and crime. Then when they finally start hurting other people then we take notice and get worried. In Short we just don't care like we should. We don't care about other people or their problems, we might say we do, and some may even be bothered by what they see on the news, but who really does anything about it anymore?

        they don't deserve to live. to put them in extreme solitary confinement for the rest of their lives? castration? what?

        and it is society's problem. report suspicious behavior, have neighborhood watches. there are things that can be done with concerted effort from adults who still care enough to get involved. we're so quick to blame others, but there are things that we can do ourselves. contact your local sheriff's office to see if they have any special neighborhood programs where selected houses are 'safe' houses for children on the way to school. they have signs in the front window from the sheriff's office. complaining solves nothing unless we are willing to be proactive and do something.

    You really want to change a person's behavior and help them be better then take the time to show them, not tell them, that they can be someone better and have some kind of worth in this world. Most of the criminals I know are who they are because they have spent a lifetime being told that, that's all they are and ever will be, and they've heard it so much and for so long they believe it. If you can get a loser to start believing in possibility and hope then maybe we could thin out the prison pops a little and make room for the people who have made the choice to be a killer or rapists and have decided on that permanent fate.

          There are many local, regional and national organizations looking for volunteers, mentors, and counselors. I worked with a local outreach program counseling inmates and freed convicts on becoming law abiding citizens and working to overcome their beliefs about failure and value. Unemployment like now is horrible but only temporary. We worked to help these men and women find ways to improve their skill sets and education and make themselves more appealing to potential employers and businesses. Mostly though we pulled them out of AA, and NA and put them through a rigorous and honest program where they accepted responsibility for their addictions and the power to change it. Telling someone they are the victim of a disease and powerless to stop it is a set up for failure and excuses. People make choices for good or bad the only way to overcome the bad ones is to admit to making them first. Once we get a person to realize that their lives are reflections of their choices then we can start looking at why they are making those choices to begin with, what is the real motivation, and reason. I worked with this program for about a year, training others to take over. Now I am working for a degree and a doctorate and when I have them I will go back and use the experience to show some of these guys that their mistakes do not mean that they can not overcome, excel, or succeed.

          But I recognize that though I have had to rely on a lot of self resilience, I have never been alone in this, there have always been people that told me not to give up. Alot of times we are tempted to look back and think how strong we were and how far we've come, but we didn't do it alone there was someone that listened or gave us a chance or just a few words that spurred us on, whether we choose to see it or not.

          If you aren't comfortable working with inmates or former criminals then get involved with youth groups or troubled offender groups around the teenage level. Work with them before they go to jail and set them self back years. I wish more people would take a minute to ask a young man "what the hell are you doing?" maybe then I wouldn't have had to ask myself that and grown men every week. Some people have a way with the public and work directly with this group we are talking about. I have a history and experience with them and so they listen to me, but not everyone has and some people do more of a supporting role. Just ask around and you will no doubt find a place where you are needed, especially at this time of year. It only takes a moment to change a life, the question is will we spend that moment looking down at someone or giving them a hand up. Whatever helps you sleep at night I guess.

People get shot walking their dogs.

              Your ideas are good - I have not really known how to get more involved without getting freaked. You gave some great ideas I will look into. We must help these people somehow.

              Let's take the emotion and turn it into energy for a change that will make a difference.

    Personally, I feel that prison has become too cushy.  Isn't it intended to be punishment?  Shouldn't the people who commit crimes and go to prison have the rights revoked?  I mean, Karla Homolka who, with her partner Paul Bernardo, raped and killed 3 girls (one of which was her sister), was allowed to complete a university degree while still in prison.  The latter half of her sentence was completed in Joliette Prison, where the prisoners were allowed day-passes.

    I beleive that when you commit a crime, whatever it is, you should have that same thing done to you. I beleive that murderers, once they are proven beyond a doubt to be guilty, should be put to death.  Then maybe the prisons wouldn't be so full, and taxpayers wouldn't be so much out of pocket paying for them.

      I agree with aspects of your post, although not the death bit as I am against the death penalty in any circumstance. Partly because I am an athiest, and thus do not believe in a place called hell. I suggest an alternative would be for all prisoners to have to earn their keep, doing menial work in return for their food and board; and their priviledges. Remember chain gangs? They could do that. 12 hour shifts, 6 days a week, that repays the monetary expense incurred by society.

    Incidentally, pedophiles are not just men and they do not just prey on youg girls.  Also, cougars are women who date younger men, BUT the men they date are above the age of consent.  Those that look for sex partners below that age are pedophiles.

      Excellent and very accurate points.  Men or women who prey upon children should be fully convicted with DNA or other undeniable methods, then executed immediately in the presence of the victims' parents or significant others.  The United States is about freedom and all children should be free to live without the fear of being ripped apart by narcississtic self-involved perverts who cry out "don't hurt me, please don't hurt me", when they are apprehended...The most prevalent reason the death penalty has been removed from other states in the USA is because of the danger of innocent people bing accidentally convicted.  This issue will be resolved in time and in any case, any DNA verified crime should be prosecuted to the full extent possible.

    The following is excepted from my hub on the subject;

    "Firstly this one needs to get simple. Crimes of this nature, (kidnapping, abduction, rape, murder ect) against children should be a federal offense. The penalty should be death; period. As Ron White has said about the Texas execution laws, his “state is putting in an express lane.” No 20 year long waits on death row, no unlimited appeals, one trial, one speedy appeal and then off to lightning road. With the forensic and evidence gathering techniques of today this should be pretty straightforward. And if this is not a good enough deterrent, someone that commits this type of heinous act against the fabric of society does not deserve the privilege to be a part of it. The only acceptable exception to the penalty should be for disputed child custody.

    Also sexual predator and offender registration requirements need be tightened and strictly enforced. There are way too many of these offenders in society “missing”. Once a child is reported missing, during the search, these animals should not have the right of protection from search and seizure. Jessica Lunsford was not found and saved because Couey’s sister refused a law enforcement “request” to search the home in which he was registered and resided, the reason, they were there. Yes I know this seems harsh to the 18-year-old boy labeled as an offender because of his 16-year-old girlfriend, and I agree. One, I think this type of prosecution is stupid, two if the States must prosecute, those convicted should be in a different category than those stated above."

    The system loves money...not people...the root of the problem lies in the fact  that the system eats up tax dollars to keep snakes out of the crib.  More snakes = more cash.
    Judges, lawyers,cops,counselors,prison guards,builders,court employees,security systems,private and public services, on and on.
    It cost an average of $44,000 per year to house an inmate.
    The system will not only NOT fix the problem....the system actually promotes crime in many indirect ways.
    The old Roman Colosseum is now television...we watch torture, rape, murder and many other vile acts for entertainment.
    Note:  The criminal is usually has a starring role.
    Emotionally retarded people (there are millions)given certain circumstances will commit heinous acts to get attention or revenge.
    There are no excuses...for the criminal or the system.
    Punishment doesn't work.
    Death doesn't work.
    How do we fix it?
    Remove the politics and profit from combating crime.
    Force all prisons to be self supporting...(A giant hamster wheel hooked up to a generator and water pumps) plant gardens and raise livestock.
    Actually make a real effort to rehabilitate those people deemed possible to rehabilitate.
    Crimes against children can not be tolerated in any society. I would leave it to a jury of inmates....life or death.

    Paedophiles always seem to re-offend. They get jailed, released a few years later and they are allowed to live in anonymity amongst us where they use every opportunity to re-offend. They are housed next to schools, playparks, near children. They are devious enough to befriend families and offer to babysit and we don't know who they are, we are not allowed to know thanks to the do-gooders who think they have "done the crime,served their time" and have the right to put their guilty past behind them and start again, while the rest of us have no idea until another child gets abused.
    This is the great danger with paedophiles, but short of locking them up for the rest of their natural life, I am at a loss to know what should be done with them.
    Child sex killers, on the other hand, are a completely different kettle of fish, and even without the hindsight of seeing how they act within a prison environment, I would have to agree with Christopher (the original poster in this thread) that the death pernalty is the only solution. They can never be free in society as they will reoffend, and if we are to lock up non-killing paedos for life, it stands to reason that it has to be the next step up for the killers.

          Why haven't others answered by saying they do and left it at that? Tim gave his opinion, and so has everyone else, sometimes by making statements without reading through the whole reply. I believe in the death penalty under certain circumstances but saying it should apply to a whole class of people without regard to the circumstances of their crime is a little overboard. For one thing a pedophile is not legally the same thing as a child molester or a child abuser. Most cases labeled under pedophile are concerning child porn here in the US. Additionally a huge proportion of registered sex offenders only crime was sleeping with the woman they later married before her 18th birthday. While I know that the intent of this thread was not cases like this but that's the problem in America we throw everything into one convenient group too often and innocent people suffer for it. Guilty parties should pay and harshly, but the FACT of the matter is execution does not stop or deter crimes in America any longer, we need to start exploring another option and soon. Saying because Tim does not support the death penalty makes him somehow a threat to his nieces and nephews is over the line and shameful.

            I agree with you...you shouldn't generalize or 'lump' people into a certain category. And I also agree that not supporting the death penalty doesn't mean you support pedophiles. But, everything is based on perspective. Tim's comments, especially at the beginning, seemed a bit abrasive or harsh. And whenever you are perceived that way, specifically in a debate, people are going to take offense.

    This is part of a larger question -- is execution itself EVER justified.

    The United States is the only Western country that (still) has capital punishment, and of course not every American state even has that.

    Part of an answer to the question is one of whether you think it is ok for the state to execute ANYBODY, EVER, for ANY reason.

    For me, that question is related to a second question:

    Do you trust the state or federal government to get things right in general? I mean, for example, if you are against universal health care because you think the government will screw it up, why trust the courts and the government not to screw up justice?

    What's the difference? I don't see one. If you are against the government and/or the courts running things in general, you should be against capital punishment: because once you've killed someone, if you later find you screwed up, sorry ain't gonna cut it.

      It's pretty sick that you can find any moral equivalency here. You can call it whatever you want, but when society puts to death a child rapist, it's not murder. If he deserves to die for it (and he does), then it's justice.

    Taking life is an emotive subject (as can be seen by these posts). However, several people have gone over the top a wee bit, but talking about 'going over the top', many lives are taken daily in Iraq and Afghanistan. If our leaders can sanction loss of life on such a grand scale (much of it innocent), then surely a child sex killer can bite the dust without so many qualms. The reasons for snuffing out child sex killers is the deterrent factor, (which many think doesn't work), and so that many families of victims can find closure.

      I'm surprised no one has used the moral justification for torture that was used in the Middle Ages in Europe ie a long drawn out torture was good for the one who suffered it as it drew him or her closer to God. They had the opportunity of a preview of Hell whilst still being able to beg for forgiveness (between turns of the rack, castration with red hot pincers, blinding, seeing their own entrails drawn from their bodies etc etc).
