    CA - Sex Offender Given Life!

    This is the sentence he should have received for his FIRST CONVICTION! IMO

    I agree! Sexual preditors do not changle, only get more adept at finding their victims.

    Thank you for posting this, SS! With all of the sadness and injustices in our world it is great to hear this! of course the pedo perp should have been locked up years ago; but, at least he got life! It is a step in the right direction. Our laws must change, and I am all for the one strike law. The prisoners should also work their butts off and earn their own keep to waste as little of our tax payer dollars as possible.

    Yet, one big problem is one I rarely see discussed. Why are we turning out so many pedophiles and rapists? We need to find out why, learn as much as we can, and hopefully find ways to prevent it from happening. Laws and prison do not prevent these sub-humans from re-offending. So unless we get to the bottom of this and learn about and employ preventive measures we are only solving part of the problem. Most, if not close to all, pedophiles have been abused at a young age. Rapists are another story. But, what are the other ingredients that make a pedophile? A rapist? What can we do to cut down on the number young people that become such depraved individuals?

    lionrun... i've been trying to figure that out for years. could it really be as simple as the fact that there is just more people...?? ever-increasing numbers of people means ever-increasing numbers of perverts and psychos.

    but if we are talking about an increased PERCENTAGE (per capita-- anyone know if this is the case?)--, here's a few other things that come to mind:

    1) abuse at a young age.. that's definitely a big one
    2) the easy availability & acceptance of pornography, combined with unhealthy attitudes towards sexuality in our society. (some say the opposite-- that it's healthy and makes for less repression. i disagree.. some of it might be healthy to a point if you're mentally healthy to begin with-- but i think there is too much and i think the objectification of women has gone way overboard. not to mention violence-against-women-as-entertainment... being shoved in our face night and day, through TV, movies, music, etc... i don't think it's 'cathartic'.. i think it trains peoples' minds in unhealthy ways.)
    3) the ever-increasing fragmentation of society.. no more extended families or clans.. people go off on their own and have a life somewhere in another city, often with little family support... and then those who have a tendency to be loners become even more anti-social and mentally unhealthy, and there is a lack of healthy relationships in their life.
    4) head injury/brain damage.. perhaps there has been an increase of this in recent times due to more auto accidents, lead paint poisoning, and our polluted environment.
    5) too much idle time due to so many technological advances. most people used to have to work, all the time... whether tilling the fields, raising lots of children, they used to walk everywhere, not everything was done with the push of a button... no TV, on intrnet. i imagine there just wasn't as much TIME to get into trouble.. people could not spend hours a day being addicted to porn (even if they had it. well, they would just go hang out in brothels a lot!).

    take any or all these things and mix it up with a large dose of testosterone... and that just spells trouble.

    but, still, the question remains.. what to do about these things?? is it too late for humanity? where would you even start.....??

    I only wish he could serve his sentence under the jail. Maybe buried up to his neck.

    Excellent post reb! I don't know if there has been an increase per capita of pedophilia and other sex crimes; but, I have a feeling it is possible. But, it sure is common. Most if not all of us throughout our country have a convicted sex offender living close to us. And, those are only the ones who have been caught. What is wrong with this picture?

    I also think that because of cable news and internet we are more apt to learn of such crimes. Additionally, it still may be difficult for many to seek help and report an attack; but. it used to be harder. So, I think there were more offenses that were not reported in years past.

    oh-- and add to that list---- the fact that now these things are TALKED ABOUT out in the open, now it's a crime.. whereas before, children were seen & not heard... and these things were often kept hidden and not dealt with. so you're going to hear about more cases.. they now make the news, and more perps are actually arrested.
