A small part of me wants to feel sorry for an old man who got strangled.

The rest of me is going "Take that, childfucker."

I don't think child molestation deserves death. Castration, I'd be all in favor for, but not death. Still, it's hard to feel much sorrow over someone who used his position - and a position that one should be able to trust absolutely - for such evil ends.

Earthly judgement has been passed and passed again, and there's a special place in hell for such reprehensible people as him. I wish I believed in it more strongly. But he was shamed, defrocked, jailed, and wiped from this earth by a man who, I'm sure, thinks he was doing the right thing.

And I'm not sure I can disagree.

It is pretty common amongst prison inmates to do this sort of thing. Murderers, burglers, all sorts of scum and villainy seem to acquire at least one sterling bit of honor while in the pen.

Don't fuck with kids.

And that's why.

Traitors and people who fuck with kids are essentially sentenced to death by a prison sentence.

Oh, I'm perfectly aware of this. I'm not surprised. I'm just wondering how "right" it is.

I can't say that I think it's right...but at the same time, except keeping them completely in solitary confinement, which is obviously cruel and unusual, I can't think of any solutions.

You're not alone, but...

Some might say castration is worse than death.
