~ offenders ~

I read in the paper last night where 2 sex offenders ( in 2 different locations ) were shot by the same guy and he had a map in his car with known sex offenders on it from the sex offender registry. The guy who shot them then shot himself and died. They are wondering if it is going to cause too much violence or vigilante justice with people being able to see where the sex offenders are located.

I would say it isnt going to be any more violent than when a child is raped or molested. I think the offenders should have thought of that before they did the tragic deed that got them the title of sex offender.

The offender gets a few years in prison...if the child survives being molested or raped he has to deal with it for the rest of his life. It clouds every relationship he/she has. More likely than not his/her life will never be the same.

And its a proven fact that these offenders can not be rehabilitated ~ they get out and they do the same thing again...more innocent children are involved. And yet they still let them out of jail to walk the same streets as our children. More innocent lives are ruined. What the hell is wrong with this picture?

Vigilante justice???? In a crime such as this.....Im wondering if its not such a bad thing. Our children are the most precious things we have ~ how can people do such monstrous things to them? Our laws need to be much stricter for anyone who harms a child whether it be its Mother, a Father, a molester, a kidnapper or the mothers boyfriend. Im tired of reading the sick things people do to children in the paper ~ and 9 times out of 10 ~ the person has been convicted of a sex crime before.

I like your new look. I agree with you. My daughter works with children who are caught young and they have also been a victim.

I also think something needs to be done but killing people is not the answer. I wish I knew what the answer was. We do beed to stop just putting them back on the street. The pronlem with the sex registry is it lumps them all together. I know a kid who offended when he was a teenager , the other boys led him into it and he was and is really dumb. But I don't think he will ever do it again. On the other hand he is in a list with some people who have raped and molested children over and over. The system stinks.

I agree Dr John...the system does stink...I know of a guy who is on the registry too b/c of a fight with his gf who was underage but they had been dating for a couple years by then. So now he is on the list but I dont really think he deserves to be on it. Its just so frustating when you read about all thses crimes in the newspaper and it seems like nothing gets done about it.

Thank you Betty on the new look...I like it too! Something different.

Hey Mimi...glad your with me on this...now we need to go march at the white house...lol

This is a tough one. My gut tells me to let these evil people be lynched, but like Dr. John says, killing isn't the answer. I wish I knew the answer. Child molesters should be locked away forever, stripped of all humanly rights!
