    Those who, in your words, "committed no actual criminal offenses", spend their time watching kiddy porn. Do you know how many children are subjected to horrific ordeals to satisfy that industry?!

    You can split hairs all you want, just tell me: if your child was abducted and used in kiddy porn, and you had the chance to meet with the person/people who were doing it to your child would you be thinking of their "diagnoses" or how many "criminal offences" did they commit, or would you simply kill them?

Nothing is served by doing that. Logic, not emotion must reign supreme here. Losing your cooling and jumping off the deep end will behoove no one.
    Tell that to my nieces.

    And pedophiles do get out of jail. Why do you think we have laws that require sexual devients to register in the area that they live in? And that more often than not such registries are open to the public?

    We were not talking of rapists, but of pedophiles!

    And they come out of jail and continue with their activities. Check out your statistics on how many pedos reoffend.

    A society that does not protect its most vulnerable in order not to step on the toes of "human rights" of criminals can not call itself civilized!

    Please, enough emotional outburst and appeal to emotion. The crime we are talking about is incredibly destructive and violent. But that doesn't excuse throwing all rules of civility and society out the window for Punisher style vigilantism.

    You do realize that when the Libertarian is saying that maybe you're acting crazy, there's a problem right?

    The recidivism rates for child molesters is similar to that of other violent crimes.

    Tell me, have you ever had a child close to you get molested? Until you do you do not have the right to tell me that I have a problem.
