Everyone knows they won't lock him up and throw the key away. It's just a sad reality. The judicial system is unfair, and it certainly has it's share of flaws. When are we going to say enough is enough and push our legislators to change the laws so that freaks like this don't ever end up back out on the streets? Vigilante justice anyone???

Isn't there a 3 strike law for these types of crimes?

The parents of any 12 year old at that sordid ordeal, should be charged will neglect.

The perv should be taken out and shot face down in a ditch.

So true.I think if the government would send these idiots to the gas chamber or the electric chair that might put and end to pedophiles and rapists.

With today's science (DNA, etc), I think we need to stiffen some of punishments. Especially crimes against kids. Maybe castration on 1st offense. Death penalty for 3rd strike. Not sure what I'd vote for the punishment 2nd offense...any ideas?

How bout 2nd offense would be having all their fingers chopped off so they couldnt touch a child again.

I agree in theory but in reality that would only cause society to financially support the looser.
How about 24 hr monitoring, including constant camera observation. Any infraction resulting in immediate incarceration and considered a 3rd strike...death penalty.

<quoted text>???WHY??? If they cared they would know where there kids are.You can't tell me they had a 12 year old daugther they would leave her go to a place they didn't know about.Yes this guy should be in jail for life. But don't put all the blame on him.Each one of those parent did to be arrested for let there kids go there.But it much easier for parents to blame this man. I think if I was a judge I take these kids out of there homes because they are unfit parents.
I am the parent of two of the children that went there. I knew everytime they were there. I met the creep and the mom. She had a son my kids age and my kids were going over there to see him. I thought..... Unfortunately no matter how hard we try to make sure our kids are safe sometimes we fail. Fortunately, they are both grown up now and productive members of our community. I am very proud of them. Yes, there were some bumps in the road of life but they made it thru with some knowledge that may help in raising their own children. You should not make assumptions! It only makes an a$$ out of YOU and me.
