After Conviction, Kill The Child Molesters
I find myself once again rethinking the death penalty with regard to child sexual predators and child molesters. These offenders get convicted and serve their time on a first offense and are released only to offend again. This has to stop, it must stop.
The most recent case that bring this all into perspective is the horrific Chester Arthur Stiles story. AP:
Nevada authorities said Friday a registered sex offender may have been the one who raped a young girl in a horrific homemade videotape, and said they want to talk to him in hopes he can lead them to the child.
Chester Arthur Stiles, 37, was being called a "person of interest" in the search for a girl with haunting eyes who authorities believe was 4 or 5 years old when she was raped and sexually assaulted in the video, Nye County Sheriff Tony DeMeo said.
The girl is called "Madison" on the tape, and it is "possible" that the man seen assaulting her is Stiles, DeMeo said.
He said investigators were led to Stiles by tips after photos drawn from the videotape of the girl and her attacker were distributed widely.
"This is breaking our hearts," DeMeo said. "She shows no emotion during the brutal assault — no crying, no emotion, nothing. You look in her eyes, her spirit is missing. That's the emotional part of this."
The girl, Madison has been found. This is at least a small glimmer of good news.
Stiles is wanted on unrelated state and federal warrants on charges of sexual assault and lewdness with a minor under 14 years of age, the sheriff said.
I am tired of news stories about child predators who have committed yet another offense against a defenseless child. Many of these offenders admit they have no control over themselves and their urges. Substantiate their guilt with incontrovertible science, technology and DNA evidence. Find them guilty and then kill them. Kill them.
That's because she's dead inside; he killed her.
I couldn't agree with you more, David.
I can't describe how sick and ill stories like these make me feel, probably you too.
Thanks for visiting and commenting, as always. I appreciate you agreeing on this post. I thought perhaps I might be...I dunno...too full of rage or vengence when I wrote this yesterday. I reread it today a couple times, and realized I wouldn't change a word.
