Slap em both with the max... Close the book and watch the discomfort spread among the predators Judge... We can make children who offend sexually serve time, let's show these adult's who dare a similar justice... dig into his past and see if their's any other complainant in his circles of life to really seal the deal when it goes to court. Justice needs to sting enough that we dont see this crap or similar, too much of it is happening.

Why do PERVS feel comfortable enough with the consequences of these felonies that they still follow the compulsion to damage our youth... Remember, this is our next generation... perpetually it is, we will always have a need to protect these kids.

Great. Another story of another "child" getting "sexually assaulted". Kidnapped too? Sheeeeiiitttt... again she cried wolf to her parents and this guy gets the book thrown at him. This is madness. No personal responsibility whatsoever.

All over again. More fodder for the verbose trio to debate age of consent, and assignment of guilt to the parties of pedophilia, ad infinitum. Kidnapping alone used to carry a life sentence, so why do these vermin get released into society? Personally, I'd prefer to see kid diddlers swing from a rope, clergy included. This is the second post on this subject, not sure if I was censored, but I'd like an explanation if this post is not acceptable....

You're right about one thing, "Those who ''get it'', get it -- those who don't will conflate the facts with their slant and create their own narrative which suits their needs...whatever these needs may be."-Lares.

Wow lares your words "This topic is such a dead horse. Those who ''get it'', get it -- those who don't will conflate the facts with their slant and create their own narrative which suits their needs...whatever these needs may be."
Although we are on the oposing sides of the arguement seeming how I much so agree with the law and believe that adults should not diddle kids and you well.... believe other wise I'm sure we all can settle on this knowing there really is only two sides of this . I'm glad you finally have come to that realization and made your decision. Lolita is a sad example to keep using since an adult engaged in sex with a child which is never ok even when that child wants it oh so badly the adult by law and by moral standards should say no. Sorry bro twisted stories, traditional exscuses and visual confusion arguements to back up pervo ideas wont work on me or anyone else who knows it's wrong to have sex with children even if the child wants it. Even if the child wanted it the law says the adult can not participate which makes sense to any law abiding citizen but I know that there seems to be a lot of confusion for those living on the wrong side of the law maybe for those being caught and serving a punishment for their crime it can teach them a good lesson of how sex with children really isnt tolerated.
