Pedophiles

Recommended Posts

Im Rick James B**ch!

This is a delicate issue. Should the names of convicted pedophiles have their names published so that communities are aware of their sexual offenses?

 

Pedophiles are a risk to the children within a community, this much is obvious. If their names were published community members would be more aware of threats to their children. But does this infringe upon the rights of the pedophiles?

 

Pedophilia is a taboo. As is common in society, those who perform taboos are persecuted by the community. Pedophiles are at constant risk by those seeking retribution for their crimes. By publishing their names this risk greatly increases.

 

Once punished should they be presumed rehabilitated?

 

Does the safety of children outweigh the rights and safety of convicted pedophiles?

 

Are offenders responsible for their own alienation?

 

Is pedophilia a disease?

 

These are all question that must be considered. Personally i sit on the fence. Where do you stand and why?

Ofcourse, pedophiles deserve what they get. Most pedophiles are not looking for retribution, just a chance to do it again. happy.gif

No is the sensible answer because it forces them underground thats not good for anybody. I don't think that they should be released at all and they should never be regarded as rehabilitated.

 

The safety of children does outweigh the rights of convicted paedophiles but thats why we need the police to be aware of where they are, and if everybody knew they would just run away to somewhere where people and the police don't know them.

 

Paedophiles are reasponsible for their own alienation and even if they are sick in the head normal men lust for women but they don't force themselves upon them paedophiles are just like rapists and have to take responsibility for their actions.

 

At the end of the day I could'nt give a f*ck what happens to the perverts I'd have them executed but I don't agree with the death penalty so I say never let them out its the only way to protect children from convicted paedophiles.

it's a crime, and criminals are labeled for stuff they did

 

which of course proves a really big hurdle when they need a job, etc.

 

so in a way imo, treat pedophiles as you would a rapist

I think letting the public know how many/or if any pedophiles live in their area is good enough. Most people including me want to beat the living day lights out of them, so for their safety as well as our children (they are citizens afterall, no matter what they have done), there is a balance of what we should know.

I believe the best solution would be yes, but to watch out, maybe have a daily or weekly check-up, to make sure everything is running smoothly. Hate crimes should also be punished.

Have you met "most pedophiles"? Do you study them? If not, then please stop being prejudice. Try and back yourself up, before your claim gets ripped to shreds.

Everyone is innocent when you think about it. I hate how people treat pedophiles like dog sh*t just because they did what they did. It's not their fault, it's not even fair for them. People never think on the side of these people, but I do. How would you like being told you can never fulfill your sexual desires or you'll be jailed. I mean sure, it's not right that they do it to children that can't think for themselves, but take a look on their side, it really isn't fair. They're not "evil" people, for f*ck's sake - there is no such thing as evil people. They just like something out of the ordinary, something different. I'm not sure if they're mental - I think we all are mental. I feel we need some simulated sex thing, like a video game, for them to express their desires. They don't deserve jail or death. What they deserve is love and care like any human being.

It's not my fault I raped the kid! Honest! I just did it because I wanted to! I certainly can't control that!

lol. Who are you?

 

Anyways, no I don't think the names should be released. If you think pedophiles are a threat to children, then make the sentences for convicted pedos longer. The fact is, when someone has done their time, they should be free. Not forced into hiding. I think it's hard to give an answer in general, because I believe pedophiles differ from case to case. If someone is going to be a lifelong threat to children, keep them in jail for their lives. Most I believe can be made into nonthreats, and their names shouldn't be released. In all honesty, what could releasing names do? I guess parents would know not to let their children go to that guys house, but in reality what kind of parents would let their children go to a creepy strangers house anyway? In reality, all name-releasing does is make life a living hell for people who have done their time.

Actually I am all for releasing their names, and here is why. A neighborhood should be aware that a pedo lives near by to protect there children. Actually in most of the united states, it is requierd by law that pedos register their name and where they live. Also what if a pedophile gets a job at a school or daycare center?

That's why we have background checks. yawn.gif

 

What of hate crimes? Do we just let them be verbally and physically abused? Do we just let people damage their property? Face it, they'd go through hell. They may deserve it, but they already faced jail time. Tell me how that is not enough.

How is knowing there is one around going to help them protect their kids? And what about protecting their kids from (more dangerous and violent) people who been convicted of burglary or something of that nature? Why don't people have those names posted everywhere?

 

 

Also what if a pedophile gets a job at a school or daycare center?

 

Criminal background checks are required for jobs like that. In fact, I think every legit job in the US requires a criminal background check.

 

 

Like I said, pedophilia can be 'cured', and after someone pays for their crime in prison they shouldn't have to live a cursed life for the rest of their life.

 

By the way, have you lot seen this site: FamilyWatchDog

I was a little vague on my responce. As for the neighborhood thing at the very least they could keep children away from that particular house. Or ofcourse people can decide to move in severe cases, though I think this is overkill. Yes I am aware of criminal backround checks and in hindsight it was dumb of me to mention that. Yes I am well aware that pedophilia can be "cured" but still that chance remains. Unfortianatly this does lead to hate crimes, but these are commited by stupid people. And unfortianatly it is a blanket law, even if a 18 year old sleeps with a 16 year old because he love her. Now I think it is wrong to label this kinda person a pedo.

Well ok we can agree the system is flawed. But please explain how I am blinded by ignorance, I was just stating my opinion. I am not saying im right, far from it. But I still can't believe that a chronic pedophile can be 100% cured. Maybe dang close but not compleatly cured and thats what makes me nervous. But I do agree about what was said earlier, it should be case by case if the name is released.

 

As for hate crimes I dont have a good reply. But what can be said is that two wrongs don't make a right.

Because you didn't do your research before entering this debate. Maybe my comment was a bit harsh and I apologize. I was just commenting on how easily you were swayed by a factor you should have already taken into consideration.

Ah yes I see, research wasn't my strongest suit in HS, lol. But thanks for the apology, I accept. Also I apologise for being easily swayed, its my nature I try to get everyone to like me suicidal.gif . But back on topic, the system appears to work for the most part in the US. There is the occasional story of hate crimes against pedophiles but it isnt to frequent. Now in Austrailia I really cant say what will happen, I don't live there. I was just stating my opinion about pedophiles. I guess I should of stayed out because I had a cousin that was molested. I am kinda biased about the whole thing. But anyways I am done in this topic for now.

I see where you're coming from. But let me put something into perspective, that's how they get off. Having a simulated sexual experience isn't going to cut it, just like you couldn't do that with a rapist. Being a rapist can be considered a 'fetish' just like pedophilia, but the only way to quench their sexual appetites is to actually do it unsimulated. The point of both isn't necessarily sex, it's power. Having power over someone to do something horrible to them, life shattering things. Rape and molestation is traumatic, and in some cases that's what they want. It's not lovemaking (you could even consider S&M lovemaking, if it's between two consenting adults), it's about hate and what I mentioned before, power.

 

The only thing a simulated experience would do is basically make the real thing only more temptuous. This would cause them to only want their fantasies played out even more. Pedophilia and rape both should not be counted as just bizarre fetishes, they should be counted as a crime. Although most pedophiles were molested as children, which makes them a victim in some cases. Don't cuddle them, and love and care for their condition, it's a disease that can cause harm to others.

 

Yes, their are examples of evil people- Hitler, anyone? Ever seen the movie 'Hostel'? It's not completely made up, that really is going on somewhere, mark my words. For example, there's a site on the internet that allows someone to go to Thailand, walk in a room and shoot someone in the head. That's an evil person. So all the serial killers that you've probably heard of aren't evil? BTK (Bound, tortured, killed) killer, Jeffrey Dahlmer (drilled holes in young men's skulls so because he had some whacked out logic that he could make them his sex slaves), Ted Bundy (among the other horrific things he did, at eight years old he laid knives out in front of his aunt while she was sleeping just to scare the piss out of her when she woke up), and all the other countless serial killers and torturers that have walked the Earth. Hell, I heard of this one that kept a woman inside a large chest underneath his bed, taking her out once in a while to rape and torture her. That's an evil person, and that's only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to evil people. Ever heard of the Inquistion? Google it or check it out on wikipedia.

You can go on and on listing all the violent things people have done to people but that doesn't change the fact that they are mental for doing it. It's simply not their fault since they are mental. Therefore, innocent and definitely NOT evil. Nothing can be evil, it's like magic - fake.

Then it is a privilege to let them live in a neighborhood. Normally, we lock them up in an asylum.

So it's not their fault for doing it since they're mental? So Ted Bundy was just plain old crazy? No, Ted Bundy was a sociopath, there's a difference. Being a sociopath means you feel almost no (if at all) sadness, remorse, or regret for anything. A sociopath could stab someone in the temple for no apparent reason and feel absolutely nothing. So that's not evil? He's not evil because it's not his fault, because he's a sociopath, a mental issue? He could control what he was doing, he had the ability to not do it, that's what makes him and the many others evil. The exception is Jeffrey Dahlmer, he had uncontrollable urges to do the things he did. He did feel remorse afterwards, thus he isn't evil. Just really f*cked up.

 

The point is, there is evil, my friend. Hitler had mental problems as well, but that definetly could have stopped him from invading Poland. And performing air raids on London. And the cruel massacre of twelve million homosexuals, handicapped people, Gypsies, Poles, anyone who opposed him, and taking the majority of six million of that twelve, Jews. So it was all just a little quirk that Hitler had about him? He ignited World War II and attempted genocide, and it wasn't his fault. I guess that we should have caught him earlier and put him in a resort where he'd 'get better'? Sociopath and psychopaths, really those types of people in general, can't 'get better', they just get a little pissed that you wasted there time.

 

How about an example of someone who wasn't a sociopath, in the mental issue sense, but still a cruel bastard? Ever heard of Dragula? Bram Stroker used him as a model for 'Dracula'. Dragula is Romanian for 'dragon', so how did he earn this title, you ask? This evil bastard was so cruel that he wouldn't just impale people, he'd turn the pole upside down, put grease on the round side (the one without the spike), then shove it right up into some poor peasant's ass all the way up to about the belly button. These poor souls would sit up like this for three to four days until they eventually starved and dehydrated. They had this pole up their ass for four days. Four f*ckin' days. You know what else? There's a story where he did this to make a point to the peasants of this town, because he was demanding tribute, he then ate breakfast in front of the bodies. No remorse, it's actually said that he laughed with some of his commanding officers while doing it. That's evil.

Exactly, it's not their fault since their mind isn't functioning properly, or according to our standards. No one can kill someone with a normal mind - there's obviously something wrong in their head that made them do that. Whether they became mental from a disorder, or from their upbringing. Something changed their mind, to do something like this. No normal mind could do such a thing, therefore it just points to the mind being mental. Ted Bundy may feel no remorse, sadness, regret - but that's simply because he's mental, it's obstructing those emotions and feelings. And how really do you know what he feels? Are you him? No, you're not, so you have no way of knowing if he didn't feel remorse, sadness and regret. There's simply no evilness since they are mental and they aren't in their right mind. You're saying killers are completely in their right mind and just do this because they are "evil." How ridiculous does that sound? They do it because their mind isn't working right, not being they are evil. Nothing is evil, evil is for people's fake creations, like Satan. And again you're assuming the person doesn't feel anything when they "stab someone in the head." Maybe they do. Maybe they feel things we can't even imagine since their mind is mental, and we have no idea what it feels like to be mental. Even though I do believe everyone is mental in small ways. It's just murderers and rapists are mental in bigger ways than us. You're trying to say people are "evil" just because they feel nothing when killing. What are we in second grade? There is no such thing as evil. It's a made-up thing, purely fantasy. Yes, Hitler was quite mental. But my belief is he doesn't deserve to die for what he did. It's not his fault, he's innocent - his mind doesn't work right. If we did capture him I believe he shouldn't be executed. He should definitely be kept away from people - but he doesn't deserve to die. What he really needs is help for his mind, and love and compassion like any other person. You're all blinded by what Hitler has done, and never think about that he's mental. Please don't assume, you're assuming that all mental people have never been helped by a rehabilitation center. In the end, you try to change my opinion by posting another thing a mental person did. Yes, he did it, look at him - but he's mental, no one would do such things in their right mind. And because he's mental, he's not evil. Evil is made-up. It's simply as simple as that.

Once could argue that the reluctance to kill another person is a conditioned mental response over thousands of years of living in a society like this. If the world were to come tomorrow, and you were forced to kill or be killed, you probably wouldn't hold much notion of "evil". For many people's psyche, going something like killing a person, or raping someone, is done for completely difference reasons than a "sane" person could think of.

 

 

Back to the argument, however, we're ignoring the fact that it's not just pedophiles who have to notify their neighbors; if you've been convicted of any sex crime at all in my area, you have to notify your neighbors of it.

 

I don't think that it is right that their names be released, and in a lot of areas they go by a different standard. They don't release the name of the person, but just notify everyone that a convicted sex offender has moved in "near by".

 

Now, a lot of people think, "Well, I want to know who this person is, so I can protect my kid!" when they don't realize that they probably don't even have the power to protect their kid short of a) never letting them outside of the house b) figuring out where the sex offender lives, and telling them to stay away from that area. For the most part, though, most parents that I know of could've given a sh*t less that their kid had a much higher chance being hit by a car playing in the street yesterday than being raped, so the notion that we're somehow protecting our children by releasing so much private information about these people is laughable to me.

 

I think that most city governments feel pressured by the citizens, who are generally the ones that really want to know Unfortunately, the reasons they usually want to know is so that they may form their own type of retribution; whether it be in the form of violence, harassment, or what-have-you. My uncle use to go and pop the tires on this sex offender's car nearly every week that he lived in the same neighborhood for 6 months until the guy had to move again. I wonder how many times something like that had happened.

 

There's also the issue of Parole Officers. These people tend to keep an iron foot on top of sex offenders, waiting for the first violation of any sort to put them back into prison. When one can imagine the stigma associated with being a convicted pedophile, you would see that there is about so much animosity and hate there that the person may as well have stayed in prison. I watched a film once, "The Woodsmen," that sort of sheds some light into that.

 

 

TubbyJ, you speak with the tone that you have some insight into the mind of a pedophile... Are you a pedophile yourself? The answer is probably no, but even if it was "Yes", you have to realize that not all minds work alike. One "pedophile" may have desires because he has fantasy of power control; other times, some people are unable to properly determine what is appropriate age, and even more people are just aroused by the taboo nature of it itself. One thing that bothers me greatly is when people assume that an attraction to children and actually following through on that are one-in-the-same. That's simply not the case, because not everyone has the same motives. If only the world were really that simple.

But does this infringe upon the rights of the pedophiles?

 

 

 

Quite frankly, the moment a person breaks the law in a way seen as, let's say, "evil" to the public, they should lose all of their human rights. I have read in the past of convicted drug dealers suing the prison system for being made to go "cold turkey" and winning the case, allowing them to use drugs in jail! The current trend, in this country anyway, seems to be to reward the guilty and punish the innocent. Justice certainly is blind...

Whether or not something is "evil" depends purely on cultural norms. You shouldn't use it as a basis for your judgement of someone in any multi-cultural society. There is a legal system. It defines certain acts as illegal. It also defines certain punishments, which might include stripping of certain rights. But it needs to be clearly defined within the law. Going beyond the law on something just because the act was "evil" is a sure way towards anarchy.

 

On the other hand, I'm not sure if such thing as a right to privacy should exist in the first place. Everyone can protect their own privacy to the best of their abilities, but they shouldn't expect government to guard it for them. If you attracted attention to yourself by breaking a law, it is your own fault, and you can deal with how your privacy suffered because of it on your own.

The whole area is touchy, but pedophiles are at the end of the day criminals, and if their names were released then they would be at risk of hate crimes and their lives would be in danger. Now, I'm not saying these sh*t-bags should live (yes I have strong feelings about them, for personal reasons) but I'm saying we should protect people from themselves. It's unfair to think that people should be expected to restrain, after all a mob mentality is likely to take over if a name were to be released.

 

Just my 2 cents.

I miss the days where scumbags like this would be exiled.

 

Forced to live off the land in, say, a frozen tundra.

Yeah, but these are also the days when free thinkers were exiled and forced to live off land with all the scumbags. I don't miss that part at all.

Personally i think the idea of releasing the names and addresses of convicted peadophiles is state-approved torture and in some cases execution. There are some places where, if it was revealed a peadophile was living in the area, families would take extra care that their children stayed away fro mthe offender and would maybe even move house. However, in most places it would be seen as a taboo-less target. A house or a person you could freely attack and abuse with little to no chance of punishment.

 

If you're going to publish the names and addresses of convicted peadophiles for "the safety of the children" then you should do the same for joyriders, muggers, hell even gun owners.
