Another one.
Seems to be a never ending problem.
I hope and pray that all victims of this type of crime have the courage to tell somebody what has happened to them.
Turning these perverts in to the law is one way to put a stop to this.
There is another way and then you call the law.

there is a more definate way to stop these pedophiles from re-offending..... casteration!! he should be the first canidate to try a new treatment for these kinds of criminals. no jail no anesthetic either.... just cut it off and no more urges to hurt lil kids.
greeneyeds 1/14/2014 11:12:46 AM Report

While I'd love to see these sickos castrated, from things I've read that doesn't necessarily stop them. I'd like to see them in a federal penitentiary put in general population, a bunch of lifers with nothing to lose would be happy to teach them a lesson. Before all the bleeding hearts jump on me, I know it can't be done in case they are wrongly accused...it's just wishful thinking for those they know without a doubt have committed a crime against a child.
My heart goes out to the victims of these crimes. I hope they receive the help they need to try to go on with their lives and be happy.

Bad dawg must work at sootoday he is reported and never have i seen his comments offensive as they are taken off.

I don't think Baddawg's comments are offensive at all. Maybe you should go hug a tree or something. These violated children will be suffering for the remainder of their innocent lives. If that was my child good old fashion justice would be served and I would be more than happy to do the time. Especially in Canada where you get a slap on the wrist for serious crimes.

True Pedophilia is not about sex, it's about control .like it or not and disgusting as is it is also a Mental disorder .

This offender very likely is not a Pedophile he is a creep who knows better and could have controlled himself.

In either case cutting off their Penis or letting them be gang raped in Prison or beaten by the Family etc will NOT change who they are if they are of that bent.

ryanc 1/14/2014 6:58:31 PM Report

You're all just as sick is this guy is. There's plenty of research that tells us that the more severely you punish sex criminals the more likely they are to become recidivists. These people are sick, not evil. They should be rehabilitated, and there's plenty of evidence that this works if you care enough to look at the data. But you don't do you? You'd rather make rash low road judgments biased to your own weird violent fantasies even though everything we know about sex crime tells us that your way of thinking results in more victims. Keep it up guys.

Only thing I can say to you Ryanc believe what you want but for me a sex offender is the worst kind of criminal. Not sure if you ever had a child or a friend molested, raped or even murdered by one of these animals but I am sure your view would change. check out Ryan James Gabournie in the news one of these supposed repeat offenders that is going back in for being a repeat offender. As a father that had his daughter raped all I want is the chance to get my hands on him. Believe me he will regret ever hurting my daughter. It is just so sad the police do their job but because of weak minded soft hearted people who believe that everyone has good in them and judges that listen these creeps are allowed to resurface to come back and haunt our neibourhoods. So shame on you Ryanc

Actually if you read the data, even child molesters will often say they can't stop themselves and will likely reoffend. While I believe that if most people try to they can change their behaviour this type of 'person' is not one I am willing to bet my children, or anyone else's children's safety and well being on.

ANOTHER worthless news article..
ryanc 1/14/2014 11:32:18 PM Report

Like I said, take some time to peruse the mountains of academic refereed data that's come out of all the studies on this issue. Repeat offenders are common under a system that resorts to more and more severe punishment and uncommon under a system that attempts to rehabilitate sex offenders.
Pakadeva 1/14/2014 11:54:35 PM Report

@greeneyeds

Yes, you are correct. Someone I know very well told me they had a discussion with a psychologist who has treated over 100 pedophiles...ALL of them say, all they think about is the kids, at ALL ages they admit this & they KNOW they will reoffend, also, they should NEVER in their lifetime, EVER be around children...it is not safe for the children & certainly makes no sense for the perpetrator to have access to one. The case in question was 2 children, a girl & boy, ages 3 & 4, assaulted frequently by the "thoughtful" male babysitter. He was trusted & around these kids doing this for 4 years...today the young girl is very permiscuous & the young man is into heavy drugs, lives ruined. Never think it's not possible cause he or she is SO NICE! It's best to err on the side of caution & keep your children safe.
blackspruce 1/15/2014 7:20:18 AM Report

Ryanc you are right maybe after severe treatment the chances of reoffending are higher. Then the only option left is make the penalty more severe either quit babying them give them no special treatment make them stay in the general public with child molester branded across their forehead or never ever let them out. Do I care if they die no I do not I wish only the most painful and horrific life and death for them
