3) There are worse things in life than sexual crimes IMHO. Mentall illness. Poverty. etc
No - there are not. There are some posts which I actually think that it's worth disengaging the brain to finger filter and worth getting banned for to say what one thinks. This is close, but I do not think that you are worth the hassle.
I am astounded by this comment. It is immature, insensitive, completely incorrect and beggars belief. I'd have probably killed the man.
Mental illness is worse than SEXUAL ABUSE OF CHILDREN?
Poverty is worse than SEXUAL ABUSE OF CHILDREN?
What planet are you on?
I've experienced the effects of this first hand on victims and their families and it is one of the most horrendous things to deal with that there is - if not the worst.
There is misplaced shame, guilt, anger, regret, self-loathing everywhere. PTSD remains with all for a long long time. It's not yet settled in those I know.
It destroys lives. It changes people. It is despicable.
Frankly - and this is not an ad hominem attack as I am actually criticising you personally - not making your argument into a personal one - you are a disgrace. If you feel that I hope that you are never allowed near children. I hope that someone is informing social services of your attitude and I hope that I never have to read such ridiculous comments on ATS again. It is as close to condoning child abuse as I have ever read.
BTW - it's spelt 'mental.'
Mods - if you disapprove of my tone, I apologise, but I stand by every word I have typed.
This is the problem with people today. You get way too emotional and you don't really think clearly. You think what the poster said was worthy to be censored? Really? For what? For merely disagreeing with you?
Why is it hardly as many people get as outraged about Murder? There is nothing worse than torture and murder, yet many seem to believe that based on reactions with cases like this. Being blind with rage and bias, you don't even care if there could be more to the story.
What he said was right, violence does at times, beget violence. The dad is no hero; he merely did what most bloodthirsty individuals would do in the same situation. To be a real hero, you have to be something different. That's what a hero is, right? To stand above opposition? If I were to handle this situation the same way, what is my opposition? I guess anyone is a hero then.

Also, do you really believe that an 18 year old boy that is put in jail and then is raped regularly - as you seem to suggest will happen - will come out as a better man? I doubt it. All he will have learned is that rape is the way to dominate others, to punish them. And if he is a pedophile - an sexual preference that can't be 'cured' but only controlled - do you really think he is willing and able to work on controlling his urges, given the fine examples he got in jail?
