As the parent of three girls I say first offense equals death. There is nothing more horrible than a girl/woman that has to live with what is left behind after abuse like this. Anyone that even considers giving these guys a second chance should have to hand over thier mother/daughter/sister/aunt/grandmother to a rapist or pedophile and then live with the pain of what was done to them. I for one feel that once society recognizes an abuser of this sort we the people should not have to live with the risk of that person ruining or taking another life. I don't care that you are sensitive to the death penalty. Too bad! My daughters and every woman in this world is more important than your moral dilemma.

How would you like YOUR mother or daughter to be the "second offense"? get real.

The death penalty has never kept crime from re-occuring. Otherwise there would be no crime punishable by the death penalty.
Keeping offenders locked up WILL prevent the crime from happening again by that offender.
But of course there are those that would still say that killing the offender would also prevent the offender from doing it again.

To say that the death penalty has NEVER prevented a crime from happening is false. No, it has not prevented ALL crimes or all particular crimes.........however, neither has any other punishment. It has prevented some more then likely. Some is better then none.
Dangerous offenders are not mentally disordered (see CRIMINAL CAPACITY). Neither are they common criminals, even recidivists, to whom the ordinary sentencing provisions of the Criminal Code apply. They belong to that small minority of offenders who are neither deterred nor reformed by ordinary punishment and who pose a serious risk to the mental or physical well-being of other members of society. The indeterminate sentence permits these offenders to be controlled until their dangerousness abates.

What is the problem with castrating these guys?? Repeat offender? Caught in the act?
I assure you, without the right "equipment", there would be less of these slap on the wrist repeat offenders. I volunteer to be the....eh....."executioner" of said bits and pieces. Let me know....
I agree, although I may sound kind of heartless by saying it, but by all stretches of fairness I think it should be 3 strikes and it's gone.
Re-Offend twice after the first time and you can kiss your dick goodbye (perhaps literally?)
Some people just don't learn quick enough ya'know?
It's difficult to be "the judge" and decide where to draw the line.

There are some very very serious flaws in our Legal system here and death for these animals would save mistakes like this from happening.
