Bloodthirsty scum.

So, when a child is abused sexually, you want to abuse the abuser.

But when that child grows up to abuse children, they deserve no sympathy?

People like you are just as screwed up in the head.

Criminals are in need of HELP...

Not whatever your twisted, unenlightened opinion of "punishment" seems to be.

God help us.

We are ALL monsters.

I believe the focus should be more on equity before equality. Without equity; equality becomes a misguided notion. So NO; it is not a simple "yes or no" question after all....

@ What about the countries that refuse to engage in equal basic human rights?

Hmmm, well considering that the U.S makes up only 5 % of the global population, yet uses 25 % of the world’s fossil fuel resources should make one think a bit a deeper about the topic, huh? Which, btw, could not be accomplished without the exploitation of third world nations that are rich in resources. The exploitation of basic human rights by the Western World of poorer nations in order to exploit these resources is ironic considering the theme of the OP.

The United States, with less than 5 % of the global population, uses about a quarter of the world’s fossil fuel resources—burning up nearly 25 % of the coal, 26 % of the oil, and 27 % of the world’s natural gas.
As of 2003, the U.S. had more private cars than licensed drivers, and gas-guzzling sport utility vehicles were among the best-selling vehicles.
New houses in the U.S. were 38 % bigger in 2002 than in 1975, despite having fewer people per household on average." target="_blank" class="postlink">

All should have equal rights, period. There is one exception and that is if you are a danger to others. That dangerous section would include sexual predators, pedophiles, serial Killers or people with severe mental health issues that, again, would make them a danger to others. What's the issue? All deserve equal rights unless they are dangerous.
