In answer to the question, about the same time that liberal judges start getting tough on child molesters, child murderers, child kidnappers and pedophiles.

Democrats are against the death penalty.

Democrats are soft on both crime and terrorism.

Liberal activist judges give slap on the wrist sentences to repeat offenders.

Democrats therefore do not have the safety and security of the American people uppermost in their minds; in fact, it is near the bottom of any agenda and philosophy they have.

This is also one of the reasons why the democrats do not want to secure the border as well aover and above the political reasoning.

Democrats are putting American lives in danger at the border and they are doing virtually nothing to protect American citizens from harm who live at the border.

Mexican Cartels Using IEDs in Drug Wars
Mexican drug cartels battling security forces are using the same kind of improvised explosive devices (IEDs) that insurgents have been employing against coalition forces in Afghanistan and Iraq.
“Mexico in the last 90 days has experienced at least three vehicle-borne explosive devices against their security forces, which look very similar to the model that we saw in Iraq and continue to see,” said Lt. Gen. Michael Oates, director of the Joint IED Defeat Organization (JIEDDO).
JIEDDO is a Department of Defense endeavor to reduce or eliminate the effects of all forms of IEDs used against U.S. and coalition forces.
In its 2009 annual report, JIEDDO warned that Mexican drug cartels “may increase the use of IED TTPs [tactics, techniques, and procedures] to respond to increased law enforcement pressure.”
Speaking at the Foreign Press Center in Washington, D.C., Oates said IEDs are “being used throughout the world to impact stable governments. We track about three to four hundred incidents a month occurring outside of Iraq and Afghanistan, where people are using improvised explosive devices against law enforcement or against military security forces.”
The Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia use IEDs in their fight against the government, according to Oates.
The explosive devices are “easily concealable. They’re inexpensive. And they are terribly devastating, in some cases against the civilian population,” he said.
This year IEDs have caused nearly 60 percent of the casualties suffered by coalition forces in Afghanistan, AFP reported.
The potential for their increased use in Mexico is troublesome. As the Insider Report disclosed two weeks ago, the death toll in Mexico’s cartel-related drug wars has exceeded 10,000 for this year, with nearly half of the murders occurring in the U.S.-Mexico border region.

When will Judges stop going soft on sex molester parents?

Too many time the molestation is in the home, and parents seldom are placed in prison for the act.

Missing the point.

What really got the Church in trouble, as usual, was not the crime but the coverup.

AFAIK, there has been no organized effort by the AMA to conceal the crimes of child molesting doctors or to shift them to distant locations without notification to their new patients.

Why is this just about slimy doctors. Sexual oredators infest all occupations. They are slime and should be treated commensurate with their crimes.
