I don't care what it costs!!!! Lock them up and throw away the key as a message to any other prevert out there. Sickos need to be dealt with and if they're not locked up, there should be a bounty on them.

Excellent story highlighting the problem in the system. I recognize that it's not a popular topic, but there are better solutions out there.

I would like to know why sex offenders charged with Child Porn, can get copies of the very photos that put them in jail in the first place--for their "defense". Hell...they get to keep them after the trial to exploit these kids further.

Most of the other States seem to be getting along fine without civil commitment programs. It's unconstitutional and just too expensive. These men have committed a crime and have already served their sentence; so they're being held on something they "might" do.

Eliminate the program.

A bullet to the back of the head is much more effective.

Plus, then then can never, ever hurt anyone again.

ZERO recidivism rate!

""It's hard to tell if it's working," said House Public Safety and Crime Prevention Committee Chairman Tony Cornish, R-Good Thunder. "They won't know until they release somebody." "

With a $72 MILLION dollar per year price tag?

And it is supposed to DOUBLE in a decade?

So, without inflation, that will cost $144 MILLION a year just for the perverts?

Get out the guns....or, could we at least have public hangings in the courtyard again?

Now THAT is a deterrent!
