I believe very much in rehabilitation, and giving people another chance. However, child rapers are "wired" wrong, and I believe have some mental flaw, that cannot be corrected.

It does annoy me that taxpayers will now pay for this criminal's food, medical, care, so he can hang in his private room for the rest of his life. Laying on his bed, watching tv and reading books. Sounds good. Pisses me off.

Time for me to go to work, so my money can support scum like this in his prison cell.

Hmm, I do know that victims have a right to prepare and read a victim impact statement - I wonder if others who are not victims/victim families have the right to prepare an impact statement and submit it to a Court - does anyone know? If so, I am certainly in favor of preparing and sending one...anyone else have any thoughts?

I hope the moderator is paying attention. This post, or any post calling for an illegal solution to a particular crime or to crime in general should not be allowed here. I call on the moderator to remove any such post and not allow the discussion of vigilante methods of dealing with crime.

Many of us are tired, horrified, and frightened by violent crime. What this particular doctor is accused of is truly despicable. Nonetheless, preserving law and order requires us to deal with even the worst people within the confines of an established criminal justice system.

The day we lose our respect for the law (and allow that system to take its course) is the day that our country will begin its path towards collapse.

He was a doctor, held to a completely different standard of trust. I think that should wiegh more harshly on his sentance. Not that he won't be in prison for a long time anyway.

Put him in general population. Hopefully, another inmate will take the burden of this living piece of crap off the state of Delaware.

As far as why the parents left their children alone with him, we have to remember that people like this are VERY diabolical, charming, and convincing. I'm sure he gave them a plausible sounding reason to be alone with the kids. From what I understand, a lot of the molestations happened within a few moments alone, like "come with me and pick out a sticker" or something like that. Parents tend to trust doctors. He probably went out of his way to earn their trust, only to abuse it. Horrible, and I'm sure every one of those parents are beating themselves up over this, but I don't think they were neglectful. Just naive.

Because of stories like this, I know to NEVER ever leave my child alone FOR ANY REASON. It's too bad that it takes someone else's misfortune for others to learn.

No parent is to blame here......I agree AnnaNomus. Most everyone trusts MDs and most MDs deserve that trust.

Then there are the aberrations...as in any job/profession.

I have been a med professional for many years......just for the record:

There is NO reason a physician or any member of med staff MUST be alone with a child.

Have you read thess articles [:] and my biggest question- why has it taken so long to get this person to trial - this has been going on for how long? And, complaints around 2008-2009...how can this happen or is yet another situation where medical staff professionals, law enforcement, etc. did not step up to the plate and follow through w/complaints...I simply do not get it! All violent crimes are horrible - violent crimes on children - despicable - how do those agencies/professionals sleep at night when they might have been able to save children, even one child - how can this be justified in their minds - I cannot comprehend this at all.

the ones that obey these "great" laws of our nation are the ones that always end up hurt...so maybe we need to rethink our ways of thinking and try it the criminal way.
