What Punishment Should a Pedophile Receive for Sexually Abusing a Child?

This poll was suggested by Websleuths.com member Wonders. Thank you very much. This is a great idea.

What do you think the punishment should be for pedophiles who sexually abuse children? I donít mean a 21 year old who has sex with a 17 year old. I am talking about the true sick bastards of this earth.

You don't need to be a member to vote and you can add your own answer to the question. If you do decide to write in your own answer Please make it reasonable. I know I too would like to take these scumbags and slowly lower them into a pond of hungry alligators but that is not going to happen. Please be serious and reasonable.

Feel free to post your thoughts on this thread too. We would love to hear what you have to say.

Thanks,
Tricia

Lethal Injection...A firing squad would do just fine as well, would be alot cheaper!

This was a hard one.

I voted Life without parole. I chose that one for repeat offenders.

1. First offense: Life with parole. With 3/4 of the sentence served before parole. Intense thearpy, offender can elect for medical castration, in order to be considered for parole once the 3/4 ths of sentence are served.

2. If there is a second offense: LWOP ~ nothing to add.

However, if the crime involved the death of a child (the death occurring prior to, during, or after the molestation) or if the child was maimed or physically damaged in such a way that full recovery isn't possible ~ then I elect for lethal injection.

I chose life without parole. Medical castration does nothing where the perp gets his sexual gratification from the power and control he/she has over the victim. Nor does chemical castration when they can just stop taking the meds. Lethal injection for predators who murder and maim. IMO

Some survivors would say that full recovery isnt possible at all. The worst damage usually isnt "physical".


These perps are cowardly. Knowing they would be executed if they are found out might slow them down a bit.

If anything can.

I picked death, by any means. (I realize my logic is flawed in the sense that sometimes charges like sexual abuse can be part of an acrimonious divorce/custody dispute.)

No 3 strikes. Do it once and you are done in this world.

They cannot be rehabilitated. Children should never be exposed to the pure evil in these creeps.

Thank you.

This poll is directed at actual pedophiles. In my mind this does not even come close to charges flung during a divorce.

People like Polly's killer, Richard Allen Davis come to mind. Scumbags of this nature. This is who the poll is talking about.

Hope I haven't confused the issue.

When I was younger, there was a man in our neighborhood who was arrested for trying to kidnap a child. After all the news came out, he had been castrated and still had the urges for little girls.

I was 12 at the time and do not know how,what,why he had been castrated.

I think death would do just fine.

Medical castration and LWOP... on a Ped Farm, in the middle of nowhere, with only very basic necessities.

Death, IMO, would be too nice.

You clarified it for me! Without the grey area, I can say, "death" without the slightest pause.

Thanks Tricia!

Death! I had a professor in college say that pedophiles cannot be rehabilitated. He said it's like telling someone gay to be attracted to the opposite sex or vice versa. I think that sums it up quite nicely.

I voted for medical castration and LWOP.

I'm trying to be a better person, and I know that the death penalty is probably something I should morally oppose. Logically and all that. Maybe voting that way and saying it enough times will make me really think it's true.

I do think it's interesting that, regardless of one's opinion on the DP, less than 10% of the votes so far think there should be even the slightest glimmer of possibility for any parole. Why is it so hard for judges, juries, legislators, and the general population to figure this out?

Never believed in medical castration

as sexual predators frequently are driven to commit their crimes by a need for power and control.

IMHO chemical castration will not stop sex offenders.

Mandatory death. I voted death by any means as long as it works. Treat them like the rabid dog that they are.
