Nobody deserves anything be it good or bad. It is also horrible policy and practice to continuously react to sex offenses. It is really sickening to hear “no more victims”. How about “NO VICTIMS”? Think about what could be true today if people got off their butts twenty years ago and actually began putting into place programs (individual and community based) to stop potential victims from becoming victims and potential perpetrators from becoming perpetrators way before either group was truly at risk for potentially for anything. At some point someone better get serious about all this crap or else no one should be allowed to complain anymore.

I never heard of any state or the feds doing civil commitment on a no contact child pornography case. Sure the judge will probably give him more than the minimum 5 years because of the high profile circumstance of the case although he never will be tried for the murder. But it’s wishful thinking he’ll get civil commitment

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
