I don't believe they should be given even a second chance-much less three chances! one time charge is enough for a life sentence IMHO!

I think they need help. Many sex offenders were abused sexually themselves. As bad as this offense is I think that every one deserves a chance at a good life. As a counselor I have been told stories of sexual abuse. Statistically, research has proven that without help these children could become abusers themselves. I think by putting them in jail for life, society is giving up on them because that is just the easiest thing to do. When in reality what they really need is help. Jail helps no...

I think by putting them in jail for life, society is giving up on them because that is just the easiest thing to do. When in reality what they really need is help. Jail helps no one to recover from sexual abuse. Unfortuantely I don't think this country has programs set up to help people like this. So, we just throw them in jail..it's easier. Shame on Society....what happened to the saying, "God doesn't make trash". It makes me laugh sometimes how hypocritical SOME supposed Christians are when they talk out of both sides of their mouths. People fall through the cracks for one reason or another, but everyone deserves a second chance.

Your right, dont put them in jail where we have to feed and house them,, give em a good talking to and set em loose in the playground. Thats o.k. as long as your kids arent there, right?? Do us a favor, stay in texas, we dont need you here. Before you try and quote the Bible, why dont you crack it open and read it, blow the dust off it first, GOD demands capital punishment, It's the fault of people like you the problem exists. So when all those people you "help" rape and mutilate their next helpless victm , he should leave your pictue behind so that little girl or boy knows who to thank.

Honestly bro.. We don't give up cause it's "the easiest thing to do" people like that get what they deserve (If they get anything) .. There are too many hungry, homeless, poor, less fortunate people... Let alone the enormous general population, that we can and need to help. THOSE are the people who deserve not only a second chance, but a FIRST chance. THOSE are the people who deserve help. Not these pricks you speak of. They don't deserve anything close to a second chance at life. Shame on...

They don't deserve anything close to a second chance at life. Shame on YOU for suggesting such. You'd be okay with a child molester getting a second chance to molest a child? .. seriously. think about it. You think just because they agree to the help that it's actually working?! people don't change, they just get smarter. If such help exsisted, I'm pretty sure that it'd only be taken advantage of to lighten a sentence. Just like an AA program. Although, Alcoholics CAN actually change. Think about it, It's like hey, am I gonna do 10 yrs in? or am I gonna do 6 months probation and agree to this stupid work shop? .. The only thing that is promoting is helping them figure out where they got caught and how not too .. Not how to stop being a rapist, that doesn't happen. Welcome to real life.

Not all sex offenders are created equal. Everybody here is so full of hate. Read the poll again, carefully. It does not say "child rapist". It does not say "predatory pedophile". It does not say "sadistic sexual torturer". It says "sex offender". But 91% instantly assumed the worst and the hate erupts. Is this just a place to yell out our pain because there is so much evil ? I am a victim. I will have PTSD forever.

Not all sex offenders are created equal. Everybody here is so full of hate. Read the poll again, carefully. It does not say "child rapist". It does not say "predatory pedophile". It does not say "sadistic sexual torturer". It says "sex offender". But 91% instantly assumed the worst and the hate erupts. Is this just a place to yell out our pain because there is so much evil ? I am a victim. I will have PTSD forever.

I am 45 and will never start a family and I have not been on a date in over twenty years. You think I am not full of hate and want to kill all the child rapists and sadistic psychopaths like the ones who hurt me ? They almost turned me into a monster and I might have become like them. It is true. I admit it. But love plus God plus miracles healed that. I know their temptations. I know how easy it is to give in. I know how easy it is keep the evil in your head and never act it out. But they do. That is why I can live but they should all die.

But please wake up from your hate. There are victims who need help. We have been thrown away by society and cannot ever live a happy normal life and we need charity and love. We need assistance. You would use energy and money to work for punishing offenders... I want you to look at your hearts and ask why you hate these monsters so much. Be honest. Ask in prayer. "God, why do I hate these monsters so much ?"

I know the answer. You hate the monsters because you love their victims. Every piece of hate that makes you want to hurt a monster used to be a piece of love that made you want to help somebody. If you cannot turn your hate for monsters back into love for victims, okay. We are only human beings. But use your brain. 91% would punish every kind of sex offender -no matter the offense- the same way the worst sex-monsters should be punished. This is because hate clouds your brain, you cannot see clearly, and assume the worst.

My feeling's on this subject is that the first time they do it, NATURAL LIFE and not in solitary or protected status - General Population with their crime posted so that all the other prisoners can see it. Very Good deterence.

I not only think that they should get natural life,I think that they should have their member surgically removed & castrated,so they can't reproduce.Also,the thumb and pointer fingers removed so they can't grip.Then thrown in jail with others just like them,so they can get a taste of their own medicine.
