    if the Law would punish these idiotic sex offenders instead of getting them off on a technicality. then maybe, they would have better since then to do the crime even if the law gets them off easy God wont unless they repent from their sins. The Bible say s it is better to hang a mill stone around one's neck then to harm a child. they will get their due Justice. one way or the other.

    They shouldn't allow these criminals back on the streets! They should be shot after they're convicted to protect society. Our judicial system makes it so easy for these jerks to live a normal life. They get like what, 4 years for taking the innocence from children and then are introduced back into society. This ticks me off that they are allowed to move into our neighborhoods where our children are. I look online and see where they live, one of them steps foot into MY yard and they'll never find their body. You can't rely on the law to protect your family.
