I personally know of a case where a father was accused by his daughter on molesting her. He was arrested, sent to prison, served his time and eventually released. He still had to register as a sexual offender.
He always maintained his innocence. Years later his daughter recanted and revealed that the mans ex-wife, the daughters mother, had concocted the story during a nasty divorce.
This mans life was ruined because of false allegations by the mother and the child. The mother eventually got religion, and finally confessed that she had made it all up.
This man served several years in prison due to these lies. The damage cannot be undone. I don't disagree that pedophiles need to be severely punished, but I have serious doubts about the ability of our justice system to do the right thing.
I understood it as a contradiction over the behavior of pedophiles who couldn’t control their compulsions vs. couldn’t or wouldn’t control the behavior stemming from the compulsion.
Ok I want to avoid mixing apples and oranges here so Ill bypass the cannibalism reference
I most definitely would (if I had the right to make the law) persecute those same people, with death, if they acted on their *compulsions* and raped a child.
If you’re convicted of an act of pedophilia - you’re a pedophile. Sorry, there’s no *let me try it just once to find out* clause in my book.
I can assure you, the *just once* argument makes no difference at all to a child who's been raped.
But, in saying that I respect your right to your opinion
but in possession of ~ an open mind.
This is where DNA evidence should be used for a conviction. If there is no hard evidence he should be restricted from coming anywhere near the daughter.

The idea that having sex with a child can be excused if the person is "just an adventure seeker, experimenter, etc," is so irretrievably sick I can hardly believe you'd write such a thing.

How about you eliminate the second strike and make it a law that if you rape a child and are proven guilty beyond a shadow of a doubt that you get a one way ticket to the gas chamber.... as this is the best way to insure that no second strike is ever required.

Ummm, anyone that is willing to let sex offenders go and doesn't thik they are a threat then you are obviously miostaken. Being teh victim of a sexual predator is a lifelong thing that those victims have to deal with, especially children. The pedo's should get one shot at redemtion after that, off to prison forever.

Coming from the mind of a person that has been in and out of the penile system for the past few years, for nonviolent crimes (child support violations/drug trafficking) I can honestly say putting these suckers in prison does do some damage to them. Child abusers/rapists/etc usually are placed in segregation units, reason being, when another inmate becomes privy to the info this person does things to children, they have a tendency to hand out vigilante prison justice upon the sexual predator.
Sometimes it can be beating the predator within an inch of their life, it can be rape, it can be making that inmate into their B*t*h. WHatever it is, the predator gets the pain they inflicted upon a child returned to them tenfold until they are released, if they make it that long without being murdered at the hands of a inmate that had a crime committed upon their child at one time.
I was in general hold while awaiting trial for driving on a suspended license. I make friends wherever I am, including jail. Well, I was sitting around talking to people that had been locked up, most were in for just htat, suspended license, but one guy and ill never forget him as long as i live, said he was in there for the same. we got to arraignment court the next morning, and everyone sits in a lil room while one by one, you tlak to a judge while htey decide to release you or set bond. well this guys name was called and the judge says," Mr. So and so, it states here you are accused of molesting and raping your 13 yr old foster daughter, bond set at 50k" we al got back to general hold after everyone had bond set or released or whatnot, and me and about 15 other guys had this guy backed into a corner, literally beating the crap out of him. Guards came in, pepper sprayed everyone and pulled him out, placed him into isolation. We were bound and determined to make him feel the pain he inflicted on that child. Personally, I think they should have left him in there, maybe then he would have realized just how badly he hurt that child. Maybe not, hell i dunno how pervs think.
My 2 cents

i have 1 question for you all:
what will you do with the solides of the US Army who are raping children in iraq? last count there was nearly 500 documented cases of child rape by US service personel and so far to date only 1 conviction.
If they were from a country in which the leaders had any moral standards, the soldiers would be expected to uphold the morality of their country.
They should be instantly court-martialed, and shot if they are found guilty.

In Canada, life is 25 years and up until recently, unless the case was extremely bad, you would get parole after 15 or so.
So here, if you kill someone, well, [SNIP] it, you may as well kill the entire class, or office, or bus or whatever cause your gonna do the same amount of time.
Gotta love logic.
