This is one of those tricky areas regarding the law. What to do to stop these molesters?
Most likely there will never be an answer that everyone agrees with, depending on their own experiences. I do think the justice system is messed up,
because the vast majority of these people are repeat offenders but they're not sentenced to life in prison or even for very long prison sentences. I
agree that we need to lock them up for life at the very least. Surely, the justice system must know that these guys are not able to be rehabbed, yet
they keep doing the same thing, giving them 2 or 3 yrs behind bars, then releasing them? What's up with that I wonder.
And while entrapment online sounds like a good idea, I'm not really sure how I feel about it. I'm against entrapment in general, but this is not
going after a drug user or a prostitute. This affects the child's entire life and they become seriously wounded as a result of being molested. The
problem for me against entrapping them online is that it does open the door for entrapment of anyone else, for whatever crime. It kind of smacks of
the "thought police" to me.
I do have to wonder though, where are the parents? When I was a kid, like 7 y.o., my mother told me to stay away from strangers, all of them period,
because I could be kidnapped and seriously harmed. I listened to her, because I didn't want to get myself hurt or in trouble. Are parents not doing
that these days? Are parents not explaining to them the dangers of online molesters trying to entice children into sex? Are the kids not listening?
What's going on with that? Does anyone here have any experience or different view they'd like to share. I'm honestly puzzled as to why the justice
system has it's head in the sand and how parents are handling this topic with their kids and teenagers. Anyone have any ideas as to why or what's
