Here we go again. The governor wants to double sentences for sex offenders over one brutal act. Why do politicians always feel it necessary to hang hundreds because of one??? As far as increase in the crime, that is mainly due to the public becoming more aware and reporting the crime (kids too). Law enforcement trapping on the web contributes too. Law enforcement is getting more porn crimes and don't forget we now lock up kids for doing what has been done since man began most likely. We need more education instead of longer sentences.

It is sad that you have closed your mind to anyone else having an opinion. I could say something nasty about your "user" name, but I don't. It is people like you that are helping to destroy this country because you would rather finance prisons than education.
