First of all, in my opinon, if the system is set up that when one completes their sentence set down by the courts, they have redeemed themselves.
Now, if that isn't happening, then we need to look at our judicial system. Maybe people that belong in mental institutions are being sent to prison
instead. Since it has been stated time and time again that the mental health community hasn't been able to come up with a treatment that discourages
pedophilia, or cures it, then there might be some thought as to putting these predators into mental institutions for life rather than allowing them
back into the communities. Essentially, the mental health community is telling us these predators have an incurable mental disease/dysfunction.
Tracking/monitoring people is a waste of time, money and energy. The only thing that it accomplishes is creating unnecessary fear, bordering on
paranoia. I'd like to know how cameras in our traffic lights, in our buildings, internet tracking of criminals prevents any major or minor crime
from occurring. Security systems don't stop people's houses from being robbed, intruded upon or anything else, but all of this certainly does
create a fearfilled citizenship. Murders, kidnappings, and robberies are caught on tape all the time.
Maybe, just maybe, many people in this country need to stop relying on the government and electronic games to raise their children. Not for one
minute do I believe my children or I'm in all of this danger from my neighbors, or even strangers that the insurance, security companies, and
government want me to believe, but then the government and police weren't involved in my parenting, and I didn't parent using electronics/TV as a
babysitter. I certainly never called the government or police department to babysit for me. Monitoring children is the job of the parent.
