1) Some of those here defending the sentence have also in the past expressed their contempt of the middle-east, because in their mind, the muslim
culture is backwards and barabaric. Strange that such a reversal has occurred. In fact, in a previous thread, where they actually got to see public
beheadings, they were appalled. Would they have been so if those executed had been paedophiles ? This leads me to believing that many reactions here
only point out how people are swinging on an emotional hinge. Laws were created for preventing this, which is why the death penalty is legally
abhorrant. It only serves the purpose of revenge which is basically satisfing peoples emotional response. And although being permanantly "deterrent"
for the convicted, statistics worldwide show it is in no way deterrent for others. It's like going to see your mommy with a cut hand. Sure she'll
make you feel better by kissing it, but maybe if she had'nt left that kitchen knife lying around, it would'nt have happened. It's better to prevent
than to cure.
2) This is not off topic, nor for the purpose of trolling. Just to give more weight to what I'm saying above. Many people here, after say, 9/11,
wanted war waged on the awfull barbaric terrorists who attacked their country. Needless to say, that unless they were perfectly naive, they understood
that war in it's self, as allways, and the extreme poverty it would bring with it, would kill and maim a great many children. Explain please, how
this sits with your views on paedophilia. In both cases, children's lives are destroyed. If they survive, they are mentaly and sometimes physically
crippled for life. What is the only difference ? The guys who drop the bombs are not specificaly targeting the children. However, they know that
inevitably, there will be "collateral damage", and some will be kids.
Think on that for awhile. Here you are foaming at the mouth because this "monster" molested and killed some children. Yet some of you have also
condoned war, which is way more devastating to children than one lone paedophile. Your response is purely emotional, and perfectly irrational, since
you do not focus the same hate on the greatest childkillers of all times, the military. No, those are considered as "heroes", by some of you, and
your society. Illogical.
