And by the way, in the jungle, when one is not enough strong to fight or is mentally ill, laws of nature prevent that animal to reproduce you know...

Only one thing.. he had a fantasy of having sex with a little boy, or girl, or cow, or goat, insert anything you consider inappropiate.
Chemical castration is an option you know, and is working well. Here we had pedophiles that REQUESTED themselves castration to be free and it worked. They WERE MENTALLY FREE and did not had the taste of kids anymore. Do some research.
well if they haven't acted on their urges, and unless the vigilante mob invent a mind reading device, they should be safe then
I agree that people are not born pedophiles; however if you look into many of their lives you will notice a trend - they were all abused themselves by loved ones, usually repeatedly.
Its sad to say - but unfortunately, I agree that they need to be institutionalized - not necessarily jailed. They were victims once as well - however we cannot allow people to continue this trend.
I do believe I didn't say ALL pedophiles - geez perhaps some people need to tone down their generalizations. Frankly I don't care if they are born or conditioned or whatever, unfortunately the end result is someone, a child, is harmed. Pedophilia is a mental illness, therefore institutionalization is important to protect those that may be victims of a repeat offender as well as to 'help' (using this term loosely) those afflicted with this illness. I am not talking jail or torture or killing. If there was true help for these people, murderers, rapists, and the like then wouldn't that be something
Sadly, Deaf Alien, some people will turn their backs on those they love because of a mistake or mental illness. I am not in their shoes so I cannot say what I would do (however, my inclination is to support my family). I have been in the child victim shoes and my opinion has not been corrupted by this. We need to help those we can, protect those we can, treat everyone with respect and love to the best of our ability. I agree that no one is 'better' than another...pedophile, christian, patriot, or alien.

What sort of additional protection does someone who has despicable urges towards kids need?
Somes up the sham that is "hate" laws, for example, in the UK if I
* Stab someone to death, who is gay, and shout "faggot"
as opposed to
* Stabbing someone to death, who is gay, because I just felt like doing so
I would receive a higher sentence
That is a perverted notion of justice
