How the hell does a convicted sex offender get a job as the manager of a tanning salon? Uber-liberalism at it's finest.

Liberalism has absolutely nothing to do with it. It is called not having enough funds federally or state-wide to staff probation offices so that sex offenders can be efficiently tracked. Those in power believe there are bigger problems than keeping track of these offenders and so the money goes elsewhere. This is a problem that goes across party and political affiliations. To reduce it to a political argument is ridiculous, because it should be about protection and safety.

Definitely a stupid hire by the tanning salon. This is probably a failure to investigate a job applicant and properly screen him, rather than "uber-liberalism", whatever that means.

Tollerance is the issue here. Society allowed this man to live after he was convicted of a sexual crime. He should have been executed the first time, and we would not have more vistims now. Wake up America.

Wrong. Liberal judges believe these sex offenders can be rehabilitated. They give them light sentences and let them right back on the streets again. The percentages show that it's likely they will do it again. Case in point.

Typical liberal response. If the sex offender was locked away for good, we would not have to increase taxes of hard-working honest people to "staff probation offices" to "track" these degenerates. I'm assuming here that conservative legislation would lock these people up and throw away the key, or possibly eliminate them from our society - thereby saving more taxpayer dollars.

An eye for an eye makes everyone go blind.

You cant kill people for committing sexual crimes.

What this guy did is morally wrong and kind of sickening. But the girl did the right thing, by realizing that's not what should have happened and going to police. Now he can hang out with Bubba in jail for awhile.

The biggest issue you see with sexual offenders is that they hardly ever get rehabilitated. Why? Because the state does nothing to provide rehabilitation.

Everyone thinks that by just simply locking them up in jail for a few years that it will correct the issue and it doesn't. That has been proven time and time again by them getting out and doing it all over again.

This is a perfect example of how the state doesn't handle the situation properly then they let them out and they harm our children yet again.

Why is it there are special prisons that house meth addicts to specifically help them but we haven't gotten the hint that just simply keeping sexual offenders in a prison cell for 5 years doesn't solve the root issue?

The state needs to create a program for sexual offenders that actually helps them with whatever sanity issue they have. And then, if an offender reoffends after he gets out of the prison program, he goes to jail for life without parole. Period.

Sex offenders continue to be sex offenders. It is proven time and time again.
If you let a degenerate out of jail, he will be righ back for a similar crime.
Keeping scum sucking low lifes like this jerk in prison forever would be very expensive.
The best solution is execution.
This guy will get let out, and do this same type of thing again and again.
How may lives must we, as a society, destroy by continuing to release these type of dirtbags over and over and over.

thousands of children who are emotionally, and possibly physically scarred.

Rehabilitation doesnt work.

If this country would quit worrying about locking people up for petty drug offenses and concentrate on child predators and molesters we would all be better off. It seems like if you murder someone or molest a child you spens less time in jail than someone caught with a little bit of marijuana.

Not a bad idea at all, but let's not forget executing homosexuals, too.

They shouldn't be rehabilited, if there is a crime on earth that deserves lifetime lockup its molesting or abusing a child. Why do these people get released? Our society is crazy, when is there going to be a "war on predators." Where are the mandatory sentences like drug offenders?

Oh, for Pete's Sake!! Will you "liberal-bashers" give it a rest already?!? Open your eyes! This has nothing to do with political parties and liberal vs. conservative judges! It is lack of funding and the sex-offender laws IN GENERAL that are too "lax". This is a nation-wide problem, no matter WHAT political party the state tends to support. The federal government doesn't seem to prioritize the type of funding needed to solve the re-offense issues. There are just as many sexual predators in conservative Texas as there are in liberal California. They are everywhere, and nation-wide, the laws aren't pro-active enough.
Do I think that sex offenders are able to be rehabilitated? Statistics say that non-incestual sex offenders have a 60% chance of re-offending. Pretty scary. Unfortunately, these guys can't be locked away for life until they do something REALLY bad. Know why?'Cause there's this little thing that the United States adheres to called, "The Constitution".
In my opinion, when one is a convicted sex offender, your civil rights, etc. are "out the window". However, that's just not how our laws work. Quit pointing your finger at the opposite party and work to find a solution to sex-offender issues! If you want to change the world, well, then, shut up and get to it!!

ohhh, you're a liberal! For shame!
Why do people throw that stupid word around like it's an insult. Newsflash...it really isn't. It is more like bitterness and sour grapes because someones team lost. I say execute all people who believe liberalism is a dirty word. Look how nasty the so called conservatives are. Talk about a bunch of child-molesting, meth-abusing, gay prosititute-screwing, wife-humiliating, former coke-head douchebags.

interesting. if i remember my sociology classes correctly, most child molesters and rapists generally tend to have strong religious and politically conservative views, and were raised that way from childhood.
Sad statement

You only know about the ones you read on TV. When's the last time you actually read about treatment that's effective or offenders that never offend again after treatment. Those aren't newsworthy like those who re-offend. Do you even know what the recidivism rate is for sex offenders? Do you know what recidivism means?? Treatment is effective for those who want to change, and some of them do (although I know some don't).

Absolutely the victim in this case did the right thing. However, we as a society failed her in that she never should have had to have been in that situation to begin with.

Perhaps you would feel different if it were you who were the victim?
