    RB & Winston, are you really...really...saying that a vigilante mob is a way to "dispense justice in a modern, civilized society" and to "be a man"?

    No one is condoning pedophilia here...I'm questioning your suggestion of an UN-Constitutional (and archaic) method of "justice" and punishment...whatever the crime may be. Understand?

    When prison becomes something other than an "alternative lifestyle" maybe crime will go down. Think about it, a person working two jobs to make ends meet:

    Can't afford cable tv. Prisoners get if free
    Can't afford healthcare. Prisoners get it free
    Can't afford/no time for gym. Prisoners have their own.

    Etc., etc., etc.!!

    We need more 'Sheriff Joe' types. As long as there is no deterrent to crime it will just keep getting worse.

    >>When WILL our justice system do something meaningful to animals who mess with children???

    When we end prohibition and start locking up the people who deserve it.

    hereandnow99 - "I think you're at least a couple of hundred years behind modern, civilized mentality."

    Because those things aren't protecting the innocent. The laws we now have in place pander to the guilty, and that's wrong.

    The bottom line of justice should be to protect the innocent. Since those who prey on children cannot be rehabilitated (as proven by the State of California about a decade ago), they should be put somewhere for the remainder of their living days so children can be protected from them.

    That's not archaic, that's common sense.

    God bless.

    When WILL our justice system do something meaningful to animals who mess with children???

    First of all, anything less that $1M bond for hurting a child is laughable.

    Secondly, IF found guilty, anything less than a life sentence which will protect other innocents from them forever is as well.

    C'mon Judges!!! Start making punishment count.

    Praying for the child.

    God bless.

    Lindsay Lohan's bail was $300,000 for failing a urinalysis.

    hereandnow...my child?...I'm uncivilized...thank you very much!

    Winston, are you saying that a mob of vigilantes outside the jail, with pitchforks and torches, can somehow dispense "justice" according the United States Constitution?

    And, this behavior of shirking your values when it's convenient, can be in any way congruent with being a "man"?

    Wow. I think you're at least a couple of hundred years behind modern, civilized mentality.

    You people saying...release him to general population and all will be good are wrong...it RARELY happens that a pedophile is hurt in prison/jail...the righteous aren't incarcerated. My advice...provide bail and man up, if you want to see justice.
