You know, I'm all for permanent removal from any and all types of society for kiddie diddles. Unfortunately, the supreme court says the following is cruel and unusual punishment for them:
1. We can't cut their weiners & hands off. It would go a long ways towards preventing future attacks by them.
2. We can't execute them solely for the crime of being a pervert.
3. We can't sentence them to life for just 1 or a few dozen attacks on one victim.
So, what are we to do with them? They whine when we attempt to limit where they can live and they whine when we put them in jail and they whine when they monitor what they do.
How about if we look at it this way:
Our freedom is a right and a privilege. It's our right to maintain the privilege of freedom so long as we obey the laws of society, do not harm other members of society. The Registered Offenders are constantly arguing they have the right to live anywhere, to move around freely. What about the rights of those of us who have never broken the law?
**Note: As far as the person who mentioned that criminal records (rap sheets) should only be available to law enforcement personnel: This country was founded on the idea of public records being available to all. If you break a law then the public has the right to know what you did and the right to conduct research to decide if they want you around or not.
