During my research of various hanging judges, I came across a few judges that, although their sentences did not amount to 100 or more years imposed on pedophiles that came before their jurisdiction, they did demonstrate extraordinary acts of compassion toward the child victims or unusual reprimands directed at the convicted child assaulter.
I felt that these Honorable men, and women are worth mentioning because based on their individual cases, it became obvious that they are defenders of the young, defenseless, and innocent. It is a stark reminder of the ripple effect left on our society as a whole, to the damage, pain, and destruction that the act of sexually abusing a child has on our moral values, and sense of decency as a civilization.
There are so many factors that play into the sentencing a judge hands down to a convicted pedophile, I don’t hide my belief that I believe mandatory life sentences are the only way to completely snuff out this horrific phenomena of child sex abuse. Until, we as a species discover a “cure” for pedophilia, I firmly believe that there is no other way besides a death sentence to stop these menacing, and sick individuals. No one can expect a clinical cure for this disorder until the medical research, and behavioral scientists professionals world-wide make it their first, and only priority. Lets face it, I don’t think anyone sees that happening any time soon. For a civilization that considers their off-spring their greatest resource for survival, it boggles the mind that we do not protect our most precious resource we have with everything we’ve got, and at all costs.
