If you don't deter the crime you essentially allow the increase in demand. Thats what this is about. Child porn is a heinous industry and we say its OK when we slap people on the wrist.
If studies prove that the death penalty is not a deterrent, then what do you suggest? Are you in such a hurry to make us Iran? Again, we don't know the specifics of this case. We don't know if she was a 17 year old, or a 2 year old. We don't know if he sought it out, or if she was a judges daughter.

The law is black and white, life is not. The moral of the story is, if you're older than 18 in VA, you better know what age the person you're engaging is.

The only reason why the death penalty doesn't deter is because it is used so RARELY in this country and the criminals know that the odds are with them. The so called studies don't bother to include that little uncomfortable detail. Before a person is executed they almost always have pages of convictions to their credit.

As for the law being black and white it is not and the varying sentences prove it as each case has it's own set of variables and considerations. Even in those cases where a sentence is mandatory the court can decide to include or exclude other charges in the case. If the law was truly black and white you wouldn't see people walking the mall after they rack up several dozen convictions in the local district and circuit court websites. Run the names of one or two dozen backpack wearing roving criminals through the websites and see what you find-----you will find that the law is anything BUT black and white, especially when it comes to sentencing.

Off the deep end are we? State sponsored premeditated murder is no deterent for sure, but letting judges hand out non sentences for villians such as this is no deterent Ither. Hope you feel better.

All Dude said was that we don't have enough information to judge for ourselves. The vicim could be a child, or - and I admit that it's far-fetched - it could be some guy who, on his 18th birthday had a picture of his girlfriend who is a day younger. You are setting aside your usual disdain for law enforcement, and you're trusting that they got it right on this case. I'm assuming that they had actual cause for prosecution and they followed through, but I really don't know. He can deal with his problems and I'll manage mine.

No, I used to use the moniker Thinking Free but I was preempted by some boob who insisted he was free, not one to argue the point(not worth it) I switched to a previous moniker of sez you. So here I am and the other thinking free has departed, I think, he may have changed his alias again but I haven't recognised his blather here recently.
