Having survived abuse in my childhood, I for one abhor this kind of reaction.
Brutality is brutality, if a child abuser can abuse their own children what hope does anyone else's child have.. especially if they know that this is
the consequence of being caught, it's not a deterrent.. these people are sick and will never stop.. they need to be locked away forever and ever.
I am only talking for myself but given the guilt that I already live with day to day is enough for me to handle, if I also had to deal with the guilt
that *I* (even if I had no part in the legal process) had sent someone to be beheaded and crucified or any other death you care to pick, I very much
doubt I would have made it through puberty.
You may have the justice you wish for society, but again, would you be prepared to do it at the cost of the victim? I can only ever speak for myself
on this subject, but it would have been enough to know I (and others) were safe from further pain, with assurances that the perpetrator was locked
away for ever would have been enough.
And most of the survivors I know feel the same way as I do.
