Perhaps and I would be one of those people. I'll freely admit it. My father worked death row in IN for years so that definitely colored my perceptions. Still, I'd rather have that man raped on the inside than have him running around on the outside. If that makes me uncivilized so be it. But frankly, I don't find our prison system to be a shining example of our civilized side to begin with.

The posts I'm reading serve as great reminders of why we have a representative government and a court system that presumes innocence until proven guilty. Mob rule is a nasty thing.

Yes it so much more civilized and rational in liberal land to give a slap on the wrist to brutal babie/child rapist. God forgive if we become more "civilized and rational" if that's the rule of thumb.

I don't want this or any other sex offender to be raped or murdered in prison. That's why they put them in administrative segregation rather than the general population and I strongly support those policies. I also don't want them to be given the death penalty.

With that said, they should be imprisoned for quite a long time. They need to be PUNISHED - and that doesn't mean a slap on the wrist.

Was he charged with rape? No. I don't think it's a good idea to casually call people rapists, especially when they're not even accused of the crime.

According to what the officer was told online he had molested the child per the information we have thus far.

From that, since when is a child of five able to give consent? Therefore if consent is not given and could not ever be given it is rape regardless of what the charge is.

I understand that, but the state will have to prove that he molested the child. People say all kinds of things in chat rooms that aren't true, especially when they're having conversations of a sexual nature.

I know the evidence against him is significant. I just prefer to take a more rational approach to it than to start expressing a desire for him to get raped and murdered in prison.

I agree with you on the last part which is why I said in one of my previous posts, IF it is true. If it's not then he needs to be left alone.

Ok, let's wait until he has his trial. Once he's been proven guilty, then I would like for him to be treated in prison the same way he treated his son. Better?

Not really. I don't understand why anyone thinks that prison rape and murder is okay. I guess a lot of people don't understand that even prisoners have rights in America. This country is very punitive, however - especially the Southern states - so I shouldn't be surprised by the barbaric attitudes on display here.
