I think I'm thinking along the same lines, Osito. I'm hoping it might happen in jail.

This is the second time I have heard of a case like this...one of my mother's ER stories was of a 1 month old being raped and dying from it. This was way back in the 1940's that the crime was comitted. Mother didn't think I could hear her but I did. Mother also had the same idea of punishment too.

They get no respect from anyone, and don't even have a group to hang with, prison is very interesting, inmates form groups of friends to hang with, who help each other out. And if you don't have a group, your time is quite difficult.
Aren't rapists and child molesters/abusers all housed in the same unit? I know that virtually all prisons have protective custody and/or a housing unit for sex offenders and child abusers so when would they come in contact with the other inmates?

Not always. Some are in general pop, until there is a reason for isolation. It takes extra money and space to have a "special" wing...and there are SO many who could be considered "special" where do you draw the line? Gay prisoners, transsexuals, young ones, baby rapers, famous felons, the list could go on and on...where I worked everyone was in the same population, until it was too much work on guards to deal with the problems. Then they went to a special area, but were transitioned back out.

Osito, I am with you on this one - probably banned for months for what I would truly want to post.

There is no word that I can come up with to describe this case, this offender and what should clearly happen to him.

Worse than horrible!

They are many, many cases very similar to this one. It is not an isolated incident. Along with more mundane information on the internet, these types of stories and websites dealing with individual tragedies have proliferated. Try going to "Unforgotten Angels" on Facebook or "FindMissingKids.com" or "museumofinnocense.org" or "angelizdsplace.com".You will be horrified. Unforgotten Angels has 6 albums of 100 cases each, so far. There are many other websites that try and memorialize and remember these young victims and there will be 100's also. We spend so little on protecting our youngest and oldest members of society, the truly helpless, in my estimation....I hope that we are becoming more aware of this terrible crime and find ways to protect these innocent children

And yet we spend millions of dollars on monsters such as this to house and "rehabilitate" them!

As a society we have become far too tolerant of the malignant creeps who prey upon our young; I used to be anti death penalty...because of the good old "not a deterrent" argument before I realized that the DP sure is a deterrent for the monsters...one at a time.

I am sickened to read of this incident and incensed enough to begin to advocate for public executions. We need to demonstrate that we are no longer tolerant of those monsters who prey upon our young.

Sometimes I read these things, and wish I could give myself a lobotomy. It's hard to believe that there are people this evil walking around the earth with the rest of us.

If he can rape a one-month old, he will rape his mother......CASTRATE HIM, then put him in prison for life WITHOUT PAROLE.....

Latina7, I vaguely recall that, and I may be incorrect w/the particular state, a representative from Maine [?], many many years ago proposed a bill to in fact castrate sex assault offenders and it was clearly not passed because it was, and I am being general with this, an infringement on rights, too invasive and some other similar sentiments - again this was many many years ago - I am wondering if such a proposal was reintroduced how it would fair now?

However, I also recognize that people are also sexually assaulted with objects as well so even castration would not necessarily make a difference.

I suppose placing all violent sex offenders especially those assaulting children, elderly and the infirm on a remote island to fend for themselves might be considered cruel and unusual punishment; however, there has to be some type of true punishment, rather than rehabilitation possibilities [since I firmly believe one cannot rehabilitate a sociopath].

I don't know what the right answer is but certainly letting out a repeat offender is not feasible or responsible.

Yes but from what I understand, offenders who assualt with objects arent in it for sexual pleasure, but more for the power they have over the victim.
