    I will never agree to killing folks that aren't trying to kill others.

    Rapists aren't killers of anything but innocence,
    and we all lose that, one way or another.

    It's not slavery. It's paying back a debt to society. And it's MUCH more preferable to the state murdering citizens, because that's all execution is.

    Law enforcement, the courts and society in general have failed in protecting our mothers, sisters, daughters, wifves and girlfriends. The best advice we can offer if to have our female loved once to stay alert and avoid situations that make them vunerable. Carrying pepper spray might be a good idea.
    I recommend carrying a S&W alloy 5 round Airweight 38 Special with shaved hammer and a Crimson Trace laser grip.

    It being housed and provided for in a low quality hotel with free room service and medical care for life. Why should a poor person bother buying lottery tickets when they can automatically win a lifetime benefits lottery by raping some children?

    I'm so tired of this blaming the victim BS. It's sad this attitude still exists, and completely illogical that it is applied only to crimes against women. Nobody would ever say a man raped by another man was "asking for it" in some way even if he was black out drunk and running around naked at a party full of gay men.

    There's nothing rewarding about prison, it's not "free room and board" as you are not free to leave, you are enslaved to the State and if you think that living as a Slave is "winning the lottery", well we're gonna have to disagree. It's like saying the slaves once owned before won the lottery as their housing and food was taken care of and all they had to do was exchange work to keep it. Of course, slavery wasn't winning the lottery because you were a slave. Just as prison is not winning the lottery because you are a slave.

    But I guess you wouldn't mind being thrown in federal prison should you ever do anything wrong, I mean, cha-ching! right?

    Being in prison is not the same as slavery whatsoever. I'd rather be living in a prison than living under a bridge. I'd rather be in prison that beaten, raped and totured to death - such as the criminal did.

    A "life sentence" to free-living is acceptable to me for certain crimes.

    You are denied the free exercise of your rights, and the man makes sure your every action is scripted to their desires. So it's pretty much exactly like slavery

    And it's easy to say that having never been in prison for any length of time.

    Yet prison is not winning the lottery. So there's that.
