I have a 4 year old daughter, and anyone who harms one hair on her head will regret it, I promise you that....
I don't think execution is the answer either, unless we're talking serious crimes like murder.
but jailing all of the offenders for life will lead to prison overpopulation and tax burdens. repeat offenders are probably seriously mentally ill,
and it wouldn't surprise me if high risk individuals can be identified at an early age and offered treatment.
When I was a kid, around 8-9, my mom would just tell me to be home before dark, I can't imagine letting my girl out at that age now unless she was
with older kids I knew or close to home. Its sad really.
