    For some crimes. For others, the state has the option of pursuing charges regardless. This is one.

    You should substitute "can" by "must", then it's correct.

    I do not see a problem that a child rapist has to face a trial, I rather see problems that many European countries seem to support child rapists at escape.

    The fact that the victim would like him not to.

    We have laws to stabilise society.Should russian roulette be legalised? and if so should someone of any age be able to play it.Libertarians are wrong you have no big scale example of a successful libertarian society.Except maybe early man when the majority of people died in their 20s and around 40% from homicide.

    Why? She was the one violated. She has said she would like this all to stop and to drop the charges.

    No justice is served.
    And? You seek revenge on her behalf?

    Child rape is a crime which is to be prosecuted by the state. Even in the liberal justice system in Germany it is that way and most obviously in California as well.

    May I ask you if you really want to critizise that the state prosecutes child rapists and if you want to make this crime to an affair just between the victim and the rapist?

    Thought about the consequences?

    I'm glad you have your opinions about my political philosophy. I will also let you know when I actually care what you have say. K thx.

    This is not your stereotypical child rape case. The man fled and now, after 30 years and the victim not wanting this to continue, you still scream for "justice?"
