The states also are of the opinion that no punishment short of a torturous death is justice for rapists and child molesters. No matter how long an offender serves in prison for his or her sex crime, IT’S SIMPLY NEVER ENOUGH FOR ANYONE!! It is all about punishment.
Let’s apply some common sense here and review facts:
(1) For many “victim advocates” the mantra has been “child molestation and rape is a life sentence for the victims. They never get over the trauma.”
(2) These “victim advocates” have another mantra: “Why should the offender get off with just a few years in prison when their victims have to live with the consequences of being raped or molested for a lifetime? It’s just not right!!!”
(3) The sex offender registry achieves the goal of retribution and vengeance because it ensures that registrants will NEVER have any semblance of a normal, peaceful, fulfilling life. Since so many of us can’t find a job, we’re legally helpless because most lawyers don’t intend to give their time and talents away for free; especially for rapists and child molesters.
(4) The retribution motive is so apparent when multiple RECENT scientific studies have been done on the subject of sex offender recidivism that CONSISTENTLY flat-out refute the “frightening and high” recidivism myth, but the courts keep going back to a 1985 or 1986 pop psychology magazine article by Robert Freeman-Longo that bases a “frightening and high” recidivism rate of 85% on NOTHING. That is deliberate indifference to the facts. Only with sex offenders does the public and our legislators tolerate court proceedings that are KNOWINGLY BASED ON FALSE EVIDENCE.
