I am not a strong supporter of the Death Penalty but for Pedophiles..I say Death
I don't believe they can be rehabilitated,
"There are three kinds of intelligence: one kind understands things for itself, the other appreciates what others can understand, the third understands neither for itself nor through others. This first is excellent, the second good, and the third useless.
I say cut it off and feed them viagra 4 times a day.
I think they should change the law so there is no statute of limitations on pedophiles. Many times their victims do not "tell" what happened to them until they are well into adulthood! By then the statute of limitations has taken effect.

Death by any means - no rehabbing these evil monsters

has there ever been a successful case of a pedophile doing a 180? i'm just wondering statistically if they can be cured as if it's a disease, speaking ignorantly bc i honestly don't know. does castration cure sick thoughts? are most pedophiles created from previous abuse or are some just born attracted to children? just wondering if anyone had some knowledge they could share.
LOL...since over half the answers involve death, I wonder where that leaves simple serial murderers.
The problem I have with this poll is that sex offenses run the gamut from the 21 yo's with 17 yo's to the serial rapist/torturer/murderer like John Couey all the way to kids who play doctor at age 12 (yes, they are on the registry, though not on the Internet). Next, if we are only going to execute less than 1% of all murderers, it is prohibitively expensive to kill all sex offenders from a standpoint of ROI alone.
Better is the following:
1. All murderers should be executed, no matter or not if rape was involved.
2. All forcible rapes involving <18 should end up in LWOP. Period. No plea bargains. Important note: I purposeful said "forceful" rather than "consensual", because consent is a LEGAL definition, not an ACTUAL definition. Two parties can willingly have sex with each other, but it is not concensual if one of the parties is underage (or if both parties are underage, whatever laws constitute a crime at that point with regard to age difference).
3. Any rape of a minor, or non-consensual sex act of an adult, that occurs after a kidnapping act should end ip in LWOP. Period. No plea bargains.
An important note: If I catch the perp attacking my own child myself, he will not go through normal "justice" methods. I will kill him after torturing him and making him feel pain. This is not a threat, and frankly, I don't care about being caught. I don't say anything different than we all FEEL here; the difference is that I have the means to execute the process.
Having said that:
We come to the oodles of gray area as to punishments. For instance, I cannot for the life of me understand why the age of consent in ANY state be less than 18 years old for sex. It is ironic, for instance, that a 50 year old man can screw a 16 year old freshman or sophomore in high school in many states and be perfectly legal, while that 16 year old girl can have sex with a 15 year old boy and be labeled a Tier 3 predator. While both incidents are crimes, obviously we have no concept here. What I would propose is this:
1. Immediately force all states, through witholding of Byrne grants or similar funding mechanisms, to institute an 18-year-old age of consent minimum age. In addition, I would also institute a gradated method of punishment, so that would preclude 19 year olds with 17 year old girlfriends. I would probably use the 3 year and 4 year older rule: that is, 18 year olds can go with 15 year olds, 19 with 16, 20 with 16, and 21 with 17. In addition, make it a felony for teachers to have sex with any students under them, even if over 18, if they are in school. This includes any grooming that may have been performed.
This will eliminate about 30% of the registry. In addition, I"m not saying that kids should be allowed to have sex before 18 or before they are out of HS by any means; punishments can still be accorded, but not at the level of sex offender. They have started with Texting on this regard.
2. Federalize ALL sex offenses as they do for banking crimes. This way they can standardize the crimes through all 50 states and US territories.
3. Federalize the sex offender registry, and do not allow any private source to access the registry for their own purposes. The problem with private registries is that they are not accountable for mistakes, and in many cases they do not change as needed. For instance, an offender may move from a residence, then an innocent family move into that residence. When someone looks at a private registry and targets the house, they may hurt or kill an innocent person rather than the perv, and that would cause legal problems. Therefore, keeping the registry under strict accountability is key.
4. All sex offenses should result in the following:
a) Immediate separation of their children and any influence in their children's lives while registered.
b) If the crime is done to someone not in the family, an immediate seizure of all financial assets, including car, home, property, and bank accounts. Such financial assets should be distributed to court costs, sentencing costs, and incarceration costs; also to the victims, or if no victims such as internet stings or child porn involving unknown or fake children, distributed to victims' assistance groups. Only allow enough assets for legal defense of the crime charged for the initial trial; no money need be set aside for appeals. While technically the money cannot be seized until a guilty verdict is rendered, the control of such money can be prevented upon arrest.
c) Ease of divorce by spouse: Suspend any divorce roadblocks meant to keep families together. If spouse is not implicated in the crime, spouse gets complete supervision of children.
Sentencing should be done at the federal level, where there is no parole. They should create a special prison for sex offenders, as remote as possible, as harsh as conditions as humanely allowable for prisoners including hard labor (REAL "hard labor" involving intense physical work; not this legal crap such as Louisiana uses). The MINIMUM sentence for a first time offense is 5 years; but most offenses should be for 10 years or more.
For any sentence that involves release, a board shall convene to assess the actual release requirements for all offenders. As a minimum, each offender shall go through an intensive sex offender evaluation process (paid for by the seized assets). If offenders cannot pass it, then they need to go to a federal civil commitment center. Note that most of the people that currently go to them NOW would not get out of prison in the first place as their sentences will be decades, if not life (no parole in federal prison).
NOW, once they are released... we are not done!!
Instead of being released to the community, they are assessed a Tier Level for their sex offense, preferably along the lines of the current system of 15 years, 25 years, and lifetime. Once assessed, they go to a zone created specifically for RSO's, preferably in the center of Alaska or, if need be, within CONUS in the middle of the desert. TEchnically, these would not be jails or prisons, but highly, constitutionally monitored zones. Offenders would have to live in the zone. They would have to have approved jobs within the zone, and not be able to have access to Internet, alcohol, and other items detrimental to their being. They would live in barracks-like existence, and have to pay for their upkeep.
Prison? Nope. This would be EASY to set up, and yes, it can be done constitutionally. But the bottom line is that instead of coming up with sentences of death, and as I said earlier, I have no qualms of killing anyone who have hurt or abused my children.

Registered Sex Offenders need to be monitored 24/7.

Lobotomy in addition to many of the the other suggestions.
Just take a hand drill and apply it to the part of the brain that controls the thought process.
Then do what ever else you want with them. Also, I really don't care what order it's done in.
Death by General Population works for me. Then we harvest their organs. Win win IMO.

My posts are strictly MY opinion under circumstances when many points of view need to be considered. I apologize in advance to anyone whose potential involvement is contemplated in error, or who may be offended because I do not see eye to eye with them on all matters related to this case. I hope our differences can be set aside as we unite in the search for this child. Your opinions and insights are just as valuable as mine.
Make a difference. Read my story in the CAPER - Citizens Against Pedophile's Early Release Forum
Oh, so many violent options. It bothers me when the perceived solution to violence is violence in retaliation. I wanted to vote for "Long prison term with intense counseling then review for possible parole" but it doesn't seem that counseling is effective with pedophiles; nor is incarceration. There are so many repeat offenders. I think the only rational option is life without parole. I did consider life in a mental health ward with heavy sedation also. Oh, and I do like LisaB's idea of Pedophisland. I've often thought a penal colony on a remote island, where prisoners farm their own food, would be fitting for lifers.

i read a bumper sticker or something that said something like: "Armless keeps them Harmless"
not exactly an answer -- but i ponder it from time to time... all i believe is that there is no such thing as rehab for these guys...and that some of the people listed as offenders are not true offenders which totally complicates EVERYTHING. and the term "sex offender" is too vague... i wanna know if they attack children, boys or girls or both and of what ages or is this some kind of peeper/stalker adult violent stranger raper...not someone who pee'd outside the bar and got arrested or some 18yr old with a 16year old girlfriend...kwim?
I hate that these criminals are the reason for so much fear in our communities.
And I hate that so much money, time and effort must be put into law- and policy-making because of them. That so many resources that could be used elsewhere must go toward making sure child sex offenders are caught and prosecuted, that potential victims (ie, any child at all, anywhere) are not more at risk than can be helped, and that abused kids get what they need to heal.
I hate that when these sickos go to jail, WE are paying for their keep, their legal aid.
I hate to even think about how many families and futures have suffered because of habitual child molesters.
And I hate that the terrible harm they do outweighs the kindness that is natural to my spirit, and makes me a hateful, frightened person who wishes nothing better than death for those with this incurable psychopathy.
Lethal injection for third strike.
^ I'd say 'first strike', because hell, there's at least TWO more young and innocent lives ruined right there, but that stubborn patch of kindness in me says 'there's always room for error'. Once, at a very large stretch twice. Three times? No way.
After the recent cases in Wyoming, Colorado and the UK, I've changed my vote to the cabin in the woods. Quite frankly, anything else is too good for them.
Castration is the best idea, along with a ton of therapy. But there's two problems:
1. Most people who sexually attack others do it for power, it's almost never sexually motivated. So castration could possibly make what future children go through that much worse.
2. After all of the Eugenics movements and sterilization of the feeble-minded all the way until the 70's, I doubt that would ever actually happen.
were the grandparents that havent stopped for justice for our grandson.hopefully it will be solved soon,have new people in sheriffs dept a new sheriff an a wonderful dectective
I voted all of the above, but I don't think anyone who molests/rapes a little child should be paroled. Ever. Unfortunately, they usually are. So I think if they are released back into the world they should have PEDO tattooed onto their forehead, chin, nose, hands, or neck (or all). It should be very, very easy for a mother to spot one of those demented freaks and keep her kids and herself away from him. There should be some kind of visible marking and I would also not be opposed to castration.
Daily water-boarding for the entire duration of their prison stay would suit me fine and maybe even discourage repeat offenders. It would make it easier for me to accept that I'm helping pay for shelter, food, television, and educations for perverts.
Until every child is found
Until tears are shed no more

Either life without parole (in general population) or death.
