Should pedophiles have access to the internet?
Or should they have something installed on their computers similar to what is in schools? Maybe some type of program that will allow them to still do things like search for a recipe or a job, but remove access to pictures of children or forums where children may be? Is there any benefit in allowing convicted sex offenders (outside of maybe Statutory rape offenders) to have access to the internet?
It's nearly impossible to police the internet.
Generally speaking the only people the government attempts to keep away from the Internet and computers in general are major hackers who have been caught.
Some of them aren't suppose to touch a laptop or desktop. However I'm uncertain if they are allowed to have a "smart phone".
There may be a way to prevent pedophiles from viewing child pornography just as technically that's illegal for anyone in the U.S. This most likely would be a tracking devise of some kind.
Nevertheless there are porn sites who specialize in using "models/actors" who are over the age of 18 but could pass for age 14 or 15. Legally they're not breaking the law but the intent is still there to sell the "fantasy" of them being with an underage youth.
Having said that there is no way to keep them from seeing TV commercials that feature families, children or babies. The advertising circulars one gets in newspapers from J.C. Penney, Sears, Target, Walmart and so forth are everywhere.
The car next to you at the stoplight may have children in it.
If someone is so "twisted" that the very sight of children "turns them on" I don't believe there is a way keep them from ever seeing a child in person or via some form of media.
The answer is a vehement, emphatic no. Pedophiles should not have internet access unless it is strongly & strictly monitored. If it is not strongly & strictly monitored then pedophiles should not have any internet access.

I was just reading another hub about Pedophile punishment. So out of curiosity, would you vote to have pedophiles castrated or do you think the punishment is too severe? If neither, what would you do?
