Do you think sending them to jail makes it so they are not dangerous, tell that to the young offender that gets locked up with them. The perpetrator just continues to abuse. I have experience. I think that these people need to be rehabilitated if that is not possible chemical restraints could be use. These guys should never be aloud to hurt any one ever again.
I dont believe sex offenders belong in jails or prisons at all. They need treatment and help. I know a young man who was locked up for 2 years and then the state of NY wanted to civil commit him for 8 plus more years. Yes he did have a mental defect but it was not sexual problem it was aspengers syndrome. He was never treated for it. because he had bad adopted parents and the state did not do there job. Had they sent him for treatment for sex offence instead of jail it would have realized what really had happened and things would have been much better off. Now we play catch up. And I sure he not alone. Also the hospital He stayed in in Marcy Ny did not help either a program 2x a week for 1 hour is not good enough. If you going help sex offenders and BTW this was the first time offender. To make sure if never happened again you have to give maximum treatment right away not minimum.
