    Fair point. To be honest I was thinking of systems where people are told there is a sex offender in the area rather than them being individually identified which is what I've experienced. What you're talking about is different (though while no contact with children is obvious, not contact with any other tenants sounds extreme and impractical to me).

    I don't think his politics has been raised as any kind of relevant point. I know a lot of Americans are irrationally obsessed with party-political labeling but you're not all that ignorant are you?

    Why bother with court cases at all then. Why not just mob rule based on media coverage?

    I'm also curious why it being implied that his being a billionaire somehow justifies greater punishment.
    Greater punishment? 4 months for sexually assaulting a child? You are joking. Right? He should have gotten what most child molesters get when they are convicted of such a horrible crime. YEARS!!

    I've never heard of no contact with other adults, just children if they are convicted of pedophilia. I'm not sure what they do in the case of a rapist of adult women though. Maybe they aren't allowed to contact female tenants? Not sure about any of that. The only things I've ever heard of no contact being in relation to children if it's a pedophile, or the specific victim (s) involved in the crime.

    I think so too. I wish we could throw away the key on these sick bastards. However, someone made a really good point to me once (I think it was TD actually) that if we make the punishment TOO harsh, those same pedophiles may start murdering their victims to avoid prison. Now, I don't know if that can be proven in any way or if something like that would really actually happen, but it is something to think about.

    You missed my point. What happened in this case aside, there are people on the thread clearly implying that in general terms, being a billionaire justifies greater punishment than it should for anyone else. For example, the comment I was replying to was suggesting a prison uniform labelled "Billionaire Paedophile".

    You know this isn't this cowboy's first rodeo too. Once thing calm down he will strike again.

    At least they need to make the public aware of this sick bastard. I think tattooing Dickhead across his forehead would suffice nicely.

    I don't think that. I don't care if they're rich or poor or even homeless, they should all be chemically castrated.
