Let me just say this:
There is NO PUNISHMENT cruel enough or unusual enough for someone who commits these crimes.
Look, I DO have sympathy for pedophiles who are sick and hate themselves while they jack off in the closet. What is completely and totally unacceptable is the one who ACTS, and destroys someone's life.
And not just the kids' lives.
The parents whose lives are completely turned upside down, and the community that adds ANOTHER point of mistrust to each other, ANOTHER pointof fear, ANOTHER point of lonliness.
Someone gets a lot of jail time for stealing money, jewelry, or a car-
How much should they get for stealing FOUR YEARS?
