    Re: Teacher left alone in AZ prison raped.

    I would guess that the potential for rehab is zero to very rare. That being said, some of the sex offender rolls need to be re-examined, because an 18 year old who had sex with his 16 year-old girlfriend can be on a sex offender list, and judged by the same standards as a middle-aged man who molests children. Texas seems to have a particularly backwards stance on that.

    Exactly. Look at us, right here in this thread. I'm ****ing disgusted. All of these same people, along with the bulk of Americans, cry havoc about the high cost of incarceration, and bemoan the state of our corrections institution system, but then when costs are cut, and the inevitable happens, wah, Someone should have prevented this, wah, someone should have DONE something.

    I do think sex offenders can be rehabilitated. But it always depends on the person/crime ect. When a person goes to jail for any offense and are released they should not continue to be treated like a criminal. They have paid their debt to society. I know that doesn't apply to the asshole in this case, he was in prison, but I am speaking to the poll question of can a person be rehabilitated.l And to that I say yes. Some people can be. Not all, but some certainly can.

    that's gonna be about a 3 million dollar cost to the state for that. The prisoner should get LWOP since the best solution is not possible (give the teacher a shotgun and a complete pardon signed by the governor)


    sex offenders tend to be much harder to rehab than drug or economically driven offenders

    Who dropped the ball here? Are we just so naive to believe that sexually violent criminals can be rehabilitated?
    I'm not necessarily interested in the poll, but one question keeps nagging me.

    Is this, by chance, a privately-run for-profit prison?
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    I love this:

    Carl ToersBijns, a former deputy warden at the prison, said the assault highlights chronic understaffing and lax security policies that put staff members at risk.
    It doesn't highlight that at all. It highlights terribly inappropriate use of resources. Leaving a woman alone with a violent sex offender (which is where she found herself at class end) is reckless and shows a complete disregard for an employee's safety.

    If they were understaffed, maybe they shouldn't have the classes. Priorities. Just sayin'.

    What in the HELL? I filled in at a detention center for violent youth for a while and wouldn't have agreed to being alone for a second, and this was when I was young and trained in various martial arts.
