You can't send people to life because they might become a killer!!!

If that was the case we'd all be in jail.

very well said.

The man's been to hell and back, I admire he's still able to maintain.

But part of that speech made me cringe, you could tell someone pulled him aside and put their agenda in his mouth, and that just made me sick... the whole cutting back 4% thing just discusted me, there's a time and a place...

They served time but, it wasn't life.


a sex offender is a very, very wide definition, covering everything from rapists to someone who might have been convicted for indecent exposure. either way, they've committed a crime. and if someone commits a crime, and then does the time, are they not entitled to then get on with their lives? why is a sex offense any better or worse than robbing a 7-11?

Well I would admit that some sex crimes are worse than robbery, like you said there's a wide definition, but to equate it with murder is ridiculous.

I say that he should be buried alive the same way she was, tortured and raped too. Good riddence for crap like him. Its just one left we have to worry about.

My thoughts exactly.

I want someone who's pro-DP to counter-argue this. I really do.

Are you kidding? Now they want to lock up "would be" killers. How are you suppose to speak logic to people like that?

I think she was trying to push for longer sentencing for severe sex offenses, which I think is not an unreasonable argument. I think it just came at a time in which that topic wasn't being discussed, so it's out of place more than anything.

Exhibit A: Kenneth Foster. Getting executed b/c he should have anticipated what "would be."
