Exactly, John. This hypocritical Puritanical society tries to scare people about Sharia Law while their total intolerance of and any empathy or forgiveness for anyone who has committed a sex offense makes their laws exactly on par with Sharia Law.
I often wonder what is in the closet of the people who push for these severe life-long sentences for any sex offense … especially against someone who did something as a juvenile, has paid for his act, and has since been a model citizen.
Luke Heimlich deserves a chance just like any other juvenile adjudicated for a delinquent act.
I hope the Oregonian goes bankrupt!
