I don't usually get nostalgic, but on the subject of child molesters and rapists, I yearn for the good old days in America, when those sorts of
people were put to death as a matter of course.
Rose colored glasses, I hate to say.
In the old days most people who molested children got away with it
, because society was so sexually repressed it was something that couldn't
even be mentioned. Denial was the rule, not punishment.
My friend was raped repeatedly by her grandfather, and her family told her to shut up and stop "telling lies" about it, because the topic was so
shocking they couldn't even cope with discussing it.
She was told that she was a "filthy liar" and a "dirty little pervert" for even trying to tell people what was happening to her. Until it turned
out he'd done the same thing to just about every little girl in the family. This kind of reaction was pretty much par for the course until the late
As for the OP, I am usually opposed to the death penalty - except in the case of mass murder, or the murder of children.
If there is anyone that deserves to be put to death (preferably slowly), it's this guy.
(edit: By the way, my friend's grandfather never spent a day in jail, he died free of old age.
So much for the "good old days"
