Perhaps if the DOC would do what makes sense in terms of community safety, the emphasis would be on proven-effective rehabilitation. Sex offenders need their own facility for intensive therapy. This would also decrease violence in the prison. If this man had a proven effective program, necessary changes could see him released to contribute to society instead of tax payers continuing to pay for his errors.

Certainly, we want to "protect our cubs". Someday he and 97% of felons will be released. Would you prefer to have a rehabilitated, responsible felon as your neighbor or one of the current 74% who re-offend within 5 years. In Oregon about 4000 are released each year. For me, I would rather have these folks rehabilitated, taking care of their familes, and contributing to society, instead of costing society more in funds and victims.

you've made some valid points..... i'm now at war within myself...

all nastiness and hostility aside.... are you recovering???

maybe you should start a grass-roots movement to educate taxpayers about this subject.....

and you are refering to the whole offender (not just sex) population in this 74% figure? or is just sex offenders? seems our system may need a major overhaul......Hmmmmm.....aahhh hhh......

Most often when we have "war within", it is an opportunity for growth. The 74% is an overall figure for all offenders. Sex offenders re-offend at 18.5%. As a matter of info, 88% of sex offenses are done by others than the s.o.. My emphasis is on the entire criminal-justice system and I am making efforts working with organizations and others who want better results than what we have been getting. One of my four websites addresses this at www.crimereform.info . My intent is to plant seeds as I am attempting to do here, with the hope that taxpayers and legislators, etc. will create better safety in our communities for a fraction of current costs.

Sexual offenders - RAPISTS - cannot be rehabilitated. We need legislation to deal with these offenders in a different way than just throwing them in prison and ignoring them; ultimately for them to be able to re-offend upon release. Who will be their next victim?

You have the assumed and incorrect position that sex offenders can't be rehabilitated. They can and statistics will support this. About 18.5% reoffend compared to 74% of other felons. Become informed. Visit reformsexoffenderlaws on the internet and/or crimereform.info. You can also learn how victims can be healed of their past.

They should've let him go. I'd have been waiting just outside the gate to SHOOT HIM DEAD.

I'd prefer to have every one of these offenders dead.

Wow, harsh feeling here. I am completely torn. I and my daughter were both sexually abused as children. Our offenders never saw the justice system. We in turn decided to try to help other who had no family to assist them in the road to recovery. After helping many young women back to the road of healing. We had one turn on us. She used the advice of an older sibling to try to get back home to live with abusive family members. She laid next to my loving husband of over 20 years and touched him. He himself called the authorities immediately. He told of what she did with not one worry of needing a lawyer. He had no intention of hurting this girl, she laid next to him. She touched him! He admitted all of that. Well it is against the law for a minor under age 18 to touch those parts of an adult male. Instead of the young woman getting help, my husband is serving a measure 11 sentence. He blames himself still for the young woman doing what she did. He thinks maybe he should have paid more attention to the warning signs...were there any? NO! He still questions himself. He is not one of the people spoken of above, yet if you look at the law, he is guilty and admitted it. So, "curious" above thinks my husband should be euthanized, now that truly breaks my heart. What my husband has been through is far more hurtful to my daughter and I than the sexual abuse we suffered as young girls. We would take what we suffered a 100 times over if we could have my husband/her father, set free and living among us.
