    The way rehabilitation for sex offenders works, is that they are trained to think about the consequences of their behavior, to reduce their impulsive behavior to re-offend.

    Sex offenders can "help" from being sex offenders. There is no compulsion to rape. They are like alcoholics, they like to rape. And like alcoholics, can stop the behavior. They just chose not to.

    CApital punishment is the right answer here. Unfortunately our idiotic politicians don't agree with that. They're almost all for "human rights", "rehabilitation" and other stupid things like these.
    What method? Any method that works...personally I would bring back firing squad or hanging....maybe public hanging.
    A good lesson for all the maniacs :cool:

    First time-shove a watermelon up their butt, then throw'em in GP. No second chances for these freaks.

    There is nothing "stupid" about championing human rights.

    I too am a victim & a survivor of sexual abuse as well as verbal, mental & emotional abuse but my opinion is much different than most people. And I’m pretty sure that I am the odd man out here with my opinion but it is just that, MOO. I think, in fact I KNOW that it is possible for anyone and I mean ANYONE (pedophile, drug addict, any kind of addict, psychopath [e.g. Dr. James Fallon], etc...) can become rehabilitated through Christ who strengthens them. It is possible for someone to control their urges to do the wrong thing. Look at Dr James Fallon or the apostle Paul for example. My opinion is based off my own personal experiences. I have an “impulse control disorder(s).” I was born that way. One of my ICDs emerged when I was a baby & has been with me off & on throughout my entire life. I have never been able to control it, rather have control over it. That is until a few years after I became a Born Again Christian. There is not a day that goes by that I don’t think about it. I still have urges but I don’t act on them. I pray...I PRAY HARD & A LOT. I have learned coping mechanisms through self taught behavioral therapy. I look at this change of behavior as a lifestyle change & essentially as a fast. Except that it’s an ongoing fast. When it comes to my ICD (& OCD bc they work hand & hand) sometimes I live literally one second at a time to get through my urges. I execute self-control which is a Fruit Of The Spirit. Jesus says in John 15:5 that if we remain in Him, He will remain in us & we will produce much Fruit. Additionally I also look at my family & their various impulse issues that they’ve overcome with Christ. My brother was a compulsive gambler that got into all kinds of trouble when he was younger...like he should have been in jail/prison. I look at my mom who was addicted to sex & cocaine. She radically changed her life when she got saved. She’s now an ER nurse & teaches nursing at a college. I look at my spouse who was both an alcoholic & drug addict for 35 years but changed their life when they became saved/born again WHILE THEY WERE IN JAIL.
    I’m not saying that someone(s) will never have an urge again, I’m saying that it is possible to fight off the urges that arise.
    With all of that being said there is no doubt in my mind that it is possible to change/to be rehabilitated for those who WANT to change.

    I believe in second chances. I believe that no matter how horrific someone’s crime has been that they deserve a second chance. Do not misconstrue what I am saying. I am not saying to allow people to go back into the world with no accountability. I think that jail/prison is appropriate accompanied with daily one on one therapy, group therapy if & when they are ready and some sort of testing(s). And then if & when they are released they must be monitored & have daily check-ins. Kind of like probation but for several years.

    Unfortunately, victims of these freaks don’t get a second chance.

    lethal injection. One strike and your out! Addiction or not, when harming a child is involved there should be no second chances. I don’t think it’s just an addiction. There’s evil mixed in or they’d seek help before offending.

    When I hear about babies and young children being raped and sodomized, I say two words. To scale. This means they have done to them what they did to that innocent baby/child to scale. For however long that child suffered. Then I am torn bc I would personally put to death my son's abuser but then other families may not want that so they could pick LWOP.

    Death.
    They know what they are doing. They don't deserve forgiveness. They have a choice. They know what they are doing.
