    No, it makes you a dead man.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Why on the planet earth should we feel safe and secure when someone who is not elected or confirmed or appointed, but instead is hired, gets to decide whether or not someone gets to have their freedom back after their sentence has been completed?

    Especially when their decisions will have a direct impact on the size of the budget their department receives the following fiscal year?

    I don't think this is a good idea.
    If someone serves their sentence then they should go free.
    If they are a long term threat then their sentence should reflect that. If they'll be threat for the rest of their life, then sentence them to life.
    But don't say one thing and then do another. That's a precedent just asking to be abused.
    I may be wrong.

    As long as it's not Louis Vuitton I see no problem with that.

    Eh? Why waste time trying to "rehabilitate" someone determined to sexually abuse young children?

    Because it would be a hell of a lot cheaper and more humane to rehabilitate someone than it would be to incarcerate them indefinitely.

    Cheaper? If so, then whatever. Humane? I could care less about treating someone well who abuses young children for sick jollies, but that's just me.

    What makes you assume that the people being affected by this are "determined to sexually abuse young children" any more than the average robber/rapist is determined to rob or rape?

    Cheaper? If so, then whatever. Humane? I could care less about treating someone well who abuses young children for sick jollies, but that's just me.
    I don't like murderers, muggers or drunk drivers either, but that doesn't mean we should just lock them all up forever and throw away the keys.

    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    There are quite a lot of ways to become a sex offender without abusing young children.

    At any rate, the system sometimes makes mistakes. It is for this reason that we must ensure that even those who are the most despised for the nature of what they are accused of doing are treated humanely.
