    The child porn sickness seems to be spreading like wildfire over the internet. At least the police are getting better at busting them.

    Former Boy Scouts leader pleads guilty in child porn case

    A former Boy Scouts leader from Davie pleaded guilty Wednesday to possession of child pornography and was sentenced to more than a century in prison, but he'll actually spend much less time than that behind bars.

    Gary Morano, 66, was charged with 100 counts of child pornography possession and his case was about to go into jury selection Wednesday when he changed his plea to guilty. Under a plea deal, Morano was sentenced by Broward Circuit Judge Jeffrey Levenson to 111 years, 11 months, which will be reduced to just four years followed by 12 years of probation as a sex offender, said Assistant State Attorney Joseph Zager.

    They need to stop cutting plea deals with these animals. Just stop. Give them a jury trial and a REAL sentence that matters. I'm sick to death of the plea deals that give criminals such a huge break. It is disgraceful.

    This is why I am somewhat for eugenics.

    As soon as you decide you are attracted to children....You are either given the DP or LWOP. No parole hearings, no lawyer, nothing.

    I will never understand why we treat these animals like upstanding citizens.
