Re: It's good to be short I guess....
Now, now...let's give the judge the benefit of the doubt for a sec. Yes, she was thinking of his welfare and rehabilitation knowing he would be electronically monitored, and whereabouts known 24 hours a day so he could not interact with 12 year old children, and the councellors and therapists could interact whenever convenient. It's amazing what fantastic progress can be made these days to turn around deviant behavior through therapy. Tools such as group sessions, mentoring, psychologic guidance, understanding and compassion have come a long way to rehabilitate people like this. So have the tried and true tools such as baseball bats, billy clubs, chains and steel toed boots. Perhaps the judge understands these necessary treatments could turn a worthless dreg of humanity into a productive and valued citizen, and that's why 10 years electronic surveillance and therapy was ordered. Think of it more as a benefit for the therapy team knowing where to meet this guy for sessions. I am certain that's what the judge thought when she sentenced him.
On the other hand I have to admit, he would never survive ten years in prison. If I were the judge, I would only given him 1 year with early probation. There would be only one stipulation. So as not to get knocked over in the stampede to the mess hall, he would have to wear a bright yellow shirt with 'Child Molester' on the front and 'Pedophile' on the back so people would notice him. Yeah I think 10 years is too much. One year or less should do the trick and payback society!
