You are not aware of what I think ought to be done instead.

I believe in torture penalties as practiced in Asia and other countries. I have no problems with castration of such people, either.

That said, there are responsibilities we must take upon ourselves by keeping an eye on those who have been known to have broken any and every law. For that matter, should we know about other things someone does that are unethical or immoral, I have no problem with shunning such people to encourage behavior modification.

When you say "His lies have been formulated before he commits a crime" I would only say that virtually every wrong has this at its heart.

I have known murders and con artists that are as pathological in lying as you say sex offenders are. I also know that some people (i.e.-an ex-president) never make it to jail despite the evidence. So liars are everywhere.

I'm not saying that I expect people to change from spending time in jail alone. I am saying that we have a responsibility to care for our families and to behave in a reasonable fashion with others, knowing that even the postman may be a potential murderer or rapist.

Let's fashion a punishment that metes out what we expect is appropriate from those who do wrong. And after such is done, let's live our lives remaining vigilant and respectful of any and everyone. Isn't this what allows us "liberty" in the first place?

Are you really this naive, or do you JUST NOT GET IT????

A sex offender is a SEX OFFENDER because this is what he WANTS to be. He will lie. He will use every tool at hand, including the Bible, the Talmud, the Quran and any other Scripture he has available to convince a child to "consent" to his sexual advances, and may even go so far as to say the 3 year old neighbor was "asking for it by flirting" with him.

"When you say "His lies have been formulated before he commits a crime" I would only say that virtually every wrong has this at its heart."

Wrong. Most crimes are committed with a minimum of preparation, which is why most of them fail. A sex offender, however, is stealthy and insidious.

"That said, there are responsibilities we must take upon ourselves by keeping an eye on those who have been known to have broken any and every law. For that matter, should we know about other things someone does that are unethical or immoral, I have no problem with shunning such people to encourage behavior modification."

There is no such thing as "behavior modification" for a sex offender because THEY WANT THE ORGASM.

"Let's fashion a punishment that metes out what we expect is appropriate from those who do wrong. And after such is done, let's live our lives remaining vigilant and respectful of any and everyone. Isn't this what allows us "liberty" in the first place?"

What about the "liberty" of the children whose lives have been changed (or eliminated) because of the sex offender? How can a child of two tell her daddy she doesn't want him to do to her what he did the last time he changed her diaper?

You think you have a good argument, but buster, you picked the wrong place to present it. You are ignorant of what constitutes "SEX OFFENDER." I hope your life is such that you never have to find out first hand. May my words never have occasion to haunt you for the rest of your life.

Listen at yourself, you are defending a child molester. Good night. If you have children I hope you keep them safer than you would have us protect ours. Good grief...
