OK, let's say your child, heaven forbid, was abused by their uncle when they were ten, and at 18 was accused of a sex crime on a minor.
You'd want due process, right?
There's no argument that crimes such as this should be processed to the full extent of the law. If that means imprisonment without release so they can't repeat, then so be it.
But here, the prison board released him and didn't inform the cops. Maybe we should line up the board and machine gun them? They're responsible, at least in part.
Now, you're left with sorting out the 18 year olds who are imprisoned for having relations with 16 year olds.
Make no mistake if it was my kid that was harmed, I'd want the perp drawn and quartered. But I thought we were talking crime and punishment, not personal vendettas.
