I think the reason why sex offenses are so high is because the punishment is not harsh enough. As far as I have read, everyone who responded had
great ideas. Some ideas sound a little unconventional, which is what makes the ideas so great and shows passion and compassion(for the victims).
Now, when rapists and child molesters go to prison, they are the ones targeted for rape by the other prisoners because the other prisoners hate
criminals who are out there offending their mothers, sisters, girlfriends, etc.. It might sound cruel, but they put it on themselves.
But, basically, if the ideas that I have just read are used, the instance of this crime may decrease, rapidly. The only way that they get harsher
punishments is when we contact our legislators, or whoever is in control of such things, and express a true concern. Also, it may help if petitions
are written and signed.
