What is going on around here.

What is going on around here. Every day I read about another pervert being accused of taking advantage of a child sexually. As a father with three daughters I swear if someone tried to prey on one of them I would go to jail for life because he wouldn't live to have his day in court. Every time I read about these monsters I worry one might come in contact with one of my kids. What is happening to our society?

Now why would you say you
Unpublished

Now why would you say you would go th jail for life? I know how you feel , BUT how would your kids feel knowing that you are go for life? You will hurt them more then anything in the world. I think that todays court are doing a good job. Perverts are look down in prison. Let him live his life in fear of being killled every day of his life. If this happen to one of your girls ( i pray that it will not ) They will need you more at home then prison.

Lock these vile, evil

Lock these vile, evil creatures up and throw away the key.

There is way too much of these unforgivable acts and someone has to step up and hold them accountable.

Poor, poor children.

Sorry, allhans, but there is

Sorry, allhans, but there is not room in the Georgia prison system for all of these vile, evil creatures. You're going to have to build a lot more prison space before you can throw away the key. A federal court has ruled Georgia's prison system overcrowded. Therefore, for every new guilty verdict in which someone is sentenced to prison, the Pardons & Parole Board has to release someone else.

Little Lamb then we should

Little Lamb then we should release non-violent criminals but these men who prey on children must be kept out of society.
I'd rather have people in jail for drug possesion, forgery, and the likes put on probation to make room for these monsters. IMHO

If we need additional prison

If we need additional prison space, let's start by purging Death Row.
