Excellent post, Lisa. Very true and very sad.


Right on, Lisa!

Except that, if we have the death penalty for perverts, what incentive do they have NOT to kill the victims?


You Go Gurl!!!!!! I second ALL of that. My sentiments exactly. Sickening.

Excellent entry Lisa,it is shattering stuff, and it is very hard to stomach.Let's hope something improves on this front.


Many cultures have had the rule that the offender becomes the property of the victim's family, to do with what they will. That sounds good to me! But, sadly, I know it's a fantasy--if we can't even get judges to withhold bail from level 3 sex offenders, we are sure going to have to come up with something a bit more politically correct. I like your idea of giving them the death penalty the first time they cross the line from fantasy to fulfilment. We have to get these guys out of the gene pool.


Lis--you took the words right out of my mouth. What a great perspective, and wonderful blog entry. Now, go run for office. We need more people like you as legislators!

    I can only quote from the jacket blurb: "If you believe that in America you are innocent until proven guilty, this book will shock you. If you believe in the death penalty, this book will disturb you. If you believe the criminal justice system is fair, this book will infuriate you." A must read. (*****)
