I guess it really depends on how you define a pedophile. Most here would define a pedophile as someone that has "acted" on that attraction in some way by either molesting children or indirectly victimizing children by collecting child pornography.


Then most here are wrong. A paedophile can be attracted to children and not act upon that attraction. Ignorance is not an excuse.

Now if a guy has THOUGHT about it, but has rejected those thoughts because he knows it is wrong, and he has never ever acted on that impulse in ANY WAY I don't think most here would consider him to be a pedophile.


Then again they would be wrong. If someone is sexually excited by children then they are a paedophile.

Speak for yourself, i see several posters that would be ahppy to kill anyone with these thoughts. It is why i've been arguing that law should be emotionless formt he very start. We cannot punish for thinking, otherwise the prisons would be full 10 times over for all sorts of crimes.

To answer you genuine question - that being - if my child who was raped as a child - turned into a child rapist later on in life - and would I be just as willing to pull the trigger on my own child as the original child rapist?

Yes.

What’s more abhorrent than the act of raping a child?
The ones who uses the excuse *oh it happened to me as a kid*.

If you were raped/molested as a child you should be THE VERY LAST PERSON to perpetuate this crime!

You KNOW first hand what it felt like!
You KNOW first hand the sheer TERROR!
You KNOW first hand the pure evil!
And you think you can get away with the same thing, by using the excuse that it happened to you as a kid?!!!?

I’d kill ‘em twice...


...taps...

Well until they find a way to read people's minds I guess they won't know who these pedophiles are now will they?

The American Psychiatric Association Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition Text Revision (DSM-IV-TR) criteria for Pedophilia (302.2) are:

    A) Over a period of at least 6 months, recurrent, intense sexually arousing fantasies, sexual urges, or behaviors involving sexual activity with a prepubescent child or children (generally age 13 years or younger);

    B) The person has acted on these sexual urges, or the sexual urges or fantasies cause marked distress or interpersonal difficulty;

    C) The person is at least age 16 years and at least 5 years older than the child or children in Criterion A.

There was a news article several months back that showed brain scans showed sexual attraction to paedophiles.

As for your definition of paedophiles according to that handbook, i find it strange because there are people out there who are attracted to children but lead an absolutely normal life. I know that because i knew someone who worked at a civil counselling bureau. She told me such things when she was drunka dn probably shoudln't have mentioned it. They cried apparently over their attractions but never acted upon them.

So again, should we prosecute on their thoughts?

But you undermine your own argument here. Surely it's abhorrent because of the unprovoked, unsolicited damage that it does to the child?

On the one hand, you're saying the damage that's being done to a child is so terrible that the perpetrator must be killed. Then, you appear to be suggesting they should 'get over' that damage and not let it affect them in ways they might not be able to control.

Are you saying that children that have been raped or assaulted have the choice to be damaged or not? What if they can't get over it and they perpetuate the cycle? They should be killed?



The ones who uses the excuse *oh it happened to me as a kid*... ...I’d kill ‘em twice...


Hysteria, much?

If someone in this thread has suggested that we test everyone in order to find "hidden pedophiles that have never acted out" and then prosecute or kill them please point out that post to me.

If you're not just grandstanding by trying to be a tough guy here, I suggest your infantile desire to kill strangers for seemingly abhorrent crimes itself is a manifestation of PUre evil. So, instead of rising above those you see as demons, you have been sucked in by the devil himself and join them in your lust for blood and revenge.

I personally don't think we should and I've had exactly the same argument elsewhere. It's a very frightening road to go down, but I'd place a wager that there's some on this thread that would and wonder why anyone else would think it a problem. Even though this is possibly a conspiracy theorist's worse nightmare - prosecution and conviction for 'thought crimes' - you only have to say 'but think of the kids!' and there's otherwise cautious people demanding that it be done.

It's the same mentality with RFID chipping kids: what a sorry road that will be. Yet mention the word 'McCann' and you get people musing 'at least I know where my kids will be'.

Well I suggest we keep the discussion focused on what people actually SAY. We can imagine all sorts of things about other posters.

I for one have thought some of the comments in this thread could suggest that some here seem to empathize, identify with, and defend pedophiles a bit too much! They seem to take this a bit too personally if you get my drift!

Do we really want to go down that road and start pontificating on things that have NOT been stated?

Obviously you're not able to read english because i listed above several instances in which paedophiles can reveal their drives but are not acting paedophiles. So should these paedophiles who are attracted to children but don't act be prosecuted is my question.

Unfortunately, a lot of the comments on this thread are actually founded on imagining things: 'what if was your child' and 'if it was my child that was hurt, I'd kill the scum'. These, thankfully aren't real, past events for the over-riding majority of the lynch-mob.




I for one have thought some of the comments in this thread could suggest that some here seem to empathize, identify with, and defend pedophiles a bit too much!


Well, there appears to be only one person on this whole 14 page thread who claims to empathise with paedophiles, although I'm not entirely sure they actually mean 'empathise' as that's a bold claim to make considering the general reception to this thread.

As for "defending" paedophiles. Again, I throw the question out, how many people are actually defending paedophiles here? I've had that thrown at me this morning, but have yet to see someone actually point out where I defend paedophiles.


They seem to take this a bit too personally if you get my drift!


Not really. Do you want to be a bit more explicit?


Do we really want to go down that road and start pontificating on things that have NOT been stated?

That actually happened many pages ago with the 'what if it was your child' type comments.

Wow... 14 pages of this and no clear answer...

The sicko is dead, he will no longer attempt to hurt anymore children, he will no longer act upon his urges to rape or abuse a little girl or boy anymore.

I'm 99% against violence of any form, but if anybody tried to hurt any of the younger members of my family, then they would find themselves waking up covered in petrol and being offered a final cigarette.

Simple. These bastards are sick, demented and perverted... some people will excuse them and say 'oh they are obviously ill, they need treatment'..... But, at the end of the day, there have been so many cases of re-offences that either they get chemically castrated or they get locked away permanently or they are terminated.

If the law is there to protect the public, then it should be used, failing that... vigilantism is natures way of protecting the weak.

In my opinion, the offenders should be left in a room with the family of the victim. There is no excuse for the abuse of a child, none at all.... Everyone knows it is wrong...

The principles of justice has been slowly slipping in the UK, particularly since the 1960s.

It isn't just the judges, it it is the politicians, after all, they pass the laws which the judges then use

Now my point is, I want to kill him MYSELF for what he has done and if I ever set eyes on him again I don't know if I'll be able (or want ) to stop myself. This man got what he deserved, children are the only future we have got and these sicko's destroy their innocence and their lives. I personally would sentence them to be put in a room full of mothers and there be no comeback on the mothers for what they do.


The problem is the punishment doesn't fit the crime. The damage done to children through sexual abuse is neverending. If we don't value the sanctity of children and only give a 4 year sentence, what does that say about justice? The issue is the same with rape. Personally I think the crime is a capital offense, right up there with murder. In the least they should be castrated. It just shows how upside down the penal system is.

Statistically, your children are more likely to die in a Car Crash than to be molested. They're more likely to die from Second Hand Smoke.

The number of things that are more likely to happen to your child than they are to get molested/raped/killed far outweigh the possible likelihood of this happening. It does happen though.

There are a few studies out there examining prevalence of Childhood Sexual abuse. A lot of them have ridiculous numbers, like "A Pedophile tends to have 200 more victims than the victims they are brought to trial for."

Is anyone on earth who ISN'T labelled a Pedophile able to claim they've had sex with over 200 people? The likelihood of most statistics for such cases NOT being inflated to scare and startle the public is very low.

Second, there is a non-insignificant portion of the Child-Rape and Murder cases that are not perpetrated by Pedophiles, but by Serial Killers or people with some other psychological dysfunctions OTHER than Paedophilia.

Third, I am fairly certain that those calling for the death of pedophiles also want any pedophiles who sate their appetites on Erotic Fiction and Erotic Art murdered as well, because they care less about the children getting hurt and more about the actual MENTALITY existing that would be aroused by such content.

In a court case in the UK, a Man was put on trial for taking pictures of adult female models and using advanced Computing programs regressing them to younger ages, thus making "CHILD PORN" that did not involve a child; only a willing adult. He was not prosecuted for this because there was no basis for the claim that a child was harmed.

However, those here would probably want this man dead. If I'm incorrect in that, by all means tell me.

What it essentially boils down to is that Pedophlia is a sexual attraction to inappropriately aged children. Some people get off on girls with twenty boobs, or obsess over platform shoes, or find anthropomorphic animals the height of sexual stimulation.

And any of those people can say that to a shrink and the shrink will talk with them about it. In confidentiality.

However, with someone admitting Pedophilia, there is a decent to good chance that the Shrink will call the police, breaking confidentiality. Even if the person had done nothing to harm anyone.

I think that a frontal lobotomy would be appropriate as well.

About the guy taking pictures of adults and regressing them into children on a computer, is not acting on an actual child so no he does not need slain, probably just scolded.

Show us those statistics. I could not find anything statistics to prove you right in this matter.

How about this for statistics.

According to www.Sex-Offenders.us:
• A child is molested every four seconds. Nearly one out of every three girls and one of every four boys is molested by age 18. This difference in these numbers may be because boys report molestation less frequently than girls.

• "There are 400,000 registered sex offenders in the United States, and an estimated 80 to 100,000 of them are missing. They're supposed to be registered, but we don't know where they are and we don't know where they're living.
- Ernie Allen, President of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Childrento co-anchor Hannah Storm on The Early Show

• Dr. Gene Abel estimates that between 1% and 5% of our population molest children.
- CNN Specials Transcript #454-Thieves of Childhood.

• About 14% of child victimizers carried a weapon during the violent crime, compared to nearly 1/2 of those who victimized adults.
- BJS Survey of State Prison Inmates, 1991

• About 10% of violent offenders with child victims received life or death sentences and the average prison term was 11 years, somewhat shorter average sentences than received by those with adult victims.
- BJS Survey of State Prison Inmates, 1991

• Like rape, child molestation is one of the most underreported crimes: only 1-10% are ever disclosed.
- FBI Law Enforcement Bulletin

• The behavior is highly repetitive, to the point of compulsion, rather than resulting from a lack of judgment.
- Dr. Ann Burges, Dr. Nicholas Groth, et al. in a study of imprisoned offenders

If they are proven to be a pedophile then yes truth is they have all ready acted on it at some point so your argument is silly They dont just wake up one day and go wow im a pedophile



The typical offender is male, begins molesting by age 15, engages in a variety of deviant behavior, and molests an average of 117 youngsters, most of whom do not report the offense.
-Dr. Gene Abel in a National Institute of Mental Health Study.


As far as treatment it appears to not work




The behavior is highly repetitive, to the point of compulsion, rather than resulting from a lack of judgment.
-Dr. Ann Burges, Dr. Nicholas Groth, et al. in a study of imprisoned offenders.





More than 1/2 of all convicted sex offenders are sent back to prison within a year. Within 2 years, 77.9% are back.
-California Department of Corrections


So now we release them they hurt more kids again. So in my view if they cant control there compulsions and want to act like a beast we have the right to put them down like one. They are no longer human at that point because we know right from wrong and we can make a choice. There is no excuse to destroy the life of a child and society should make this very clear.

Okay. So let's be conservative. 1 million Sex-Offenders in the U.S. Let's assume there's 70 million kids in the U.S.

I'd conservatively cut the Sex-Offenders in one third, since there are a lot of things that can get you put on the Sex Offenders Registry. So, let's just say 300,000 Pedophiles.

You're saying that for every Pedophile, they have molested 233 children Per person.

I ask again, do you know ANYONE at all who has had 233 Sexual partners?

For that matter, do you know how hard it would be to sexually abuse THAT MANY kids and have nothing out on it?

These numbers are inflated, and these are conservative estimate.

The reason the numbers are inflated is because there is an agenda to scare the public about Pedophiles. Do these things happen? Yes.

But not as frequently as the lies, damn lies and Statistics would have you indicate.

If you were even honest about it, you'd cut the actual amount a lot less... while still retaining about the same number I gave you of children molested (Mind you, I underestimated the number of children in America vastly, and I did not factor in the 1/3 and 1/4 amounts.)

70 million would be 23 million kids... which if you were being realistic would be more like 40 million, and the Actual Paedophile ratio of sex offenders is probably 2/10 or less. Using the actual number of registered sex offenders you get 100,000 Pedophiles with FOUR HUNDRED molestation/rapes.

No, I am sorry. It is not happening that frequently. The numbers your stats are quoting are grossly exaggerated.

While the people running these stats will assume a lot more crimes will not be reported due to embarrassment, shame, or whatnot... they don't take into account all the reasons someone can be falsely accused for life, which tend to balance out the numbers quite a bit.

I'll reiterate one more time.... yes, child rape and molestation happens. Yes, it is a terrible thing. I am not saying it isn't with the above.

I am specifically saying that the numbers are full of schiste (A flaky and brittle rock).
