quote: The real difficulty is distinguishing between true sexual predators (who, in my opinion, are incurable with currently available techniques) and those who made a one-time mistake and are clearly not predatory. I have personally seen a case where an 18 year old was made into a registered sex offender for the rest of his life, for the unforgivable sin of sending a "sext" message to a girl who represented herself to be 18 as well. She was 15, the father of the girl saw the message, and you know the rest. Start by clearly distinguishing between true sexual predators (who are incurable, and need to be watched very closely) and people who just made a mistake.
quote: I don't think you could stop "fancying" young kids any more than you can stop being gay.
quote: Once you start grouping people like that, we could say males are proven to have the highest repeat offense rate so merely being male is enough to damn someone to a label forever.
quote: If a rapist or molester can't sit on their butt surfing the net they're going to go out around ACTUAL PEOPLE, they may be even more likely to repeat an offense.
quote: The problem is the sex offender label is slapped onto such a wide range of crimes, anything from peeing outdoors to having sex with your girlfriend if you're 18 and she's 16.
quote: On the other hand, just because certain sex offenders have high repeat rates, that doesn't necessarily mean I wouldn't want to know about other offenses that have lower rates.
quote: All men haven't commited crimes to be "damned". But all convicted sex offenders HAVE.
quote: Have they now? Courts never convict innocent people anymore? That's certainly news to me.
quote: Typical faux-intellectual non sequitur disguised in bad analogy. We're not "grouping" people at all. All men haven't commited crimes to be "damned". But all convicted sex offenders HAVE.
quote: It takes balls to say "if curing 100,000 sex offenders means 100 of them will relapse and rape another child, then i'd rather take the 100 raped children then giving up on 100,000 humans, even if one of those is mine".
quote: That's possibly one of the most fucked up things I've ever read.
quote: You do realise that the whole point of prison is to REHABILITATE?!
quote: I understand paying your dues to society and you should if you commit a crime.
quote: Just giving up on a human because he made 1 mistake
quote: Also having these people register and tell their communities what they've done is being goddamn lazy pussies.
quote: do you really think anybody will have any kind of a life after being forced to post online that they're a sex offender?).
quote: Since when did the tough guy become the ones who send people to therapy to cry about how daddy touched him? and the guys who say shoot all the child molesters are pussies?
quote: "Pussification" is derogatory and insults an entire gender.
quote: In any case, I doubt if your balls will ever get tougher than a pussy.
quote: First, there is no distinction between being drunk and peeing in a park near some kids and actually raping them
quote: Second, your life is ruined after being sentanced regardless of your reabilitation or time served because of these declarations
