Another Rape and Murder Victim: No More Leniency for Sex Offenders

The rape and murder of seventeen year-old Chelsea King has stirred up the vital topic of sex offenders being given very little prison time and then released to rape, molest or murder someone else.

Police say Chelsea was abducted, raped and murdered when she went for a run near her San Diego home. John Gardner, a registered sex offender, has been charged with the crime.

Thirty year-old Gardner, plead guilty in 2000 to molesting a thirteen year-old neighbor. His own psychiatrist said he was “a continued danger to underage girls in the community.” The psychiatrist suggested a 30-year sentence for Gardner but, because of a plea-deal, he served only five years.

Jake Goldenflame, a convicted child molester, who has publicly spoken out in order to help other offenders and victims says, “It’s wishful thinking to believe that simply by locking someone up for a number of years that’s going to magically transform him when he comes out.”

If convicted, John Gardner will receive life in prison or the death penalty but that doesn’t help Chelsea King does it?

Phillip Garrido raped Katherine Hall for eight hours in a chamber of horrors in a storage shed a few years before he abducted, kidnapped and raped Jaycee Lee Dugard for eighteen years. He was given a fifty year sentence for raping Katherine but only served ten.

John Wayne Gacy was convicted of sodomizing a fifteen year-old boy a few years before police found thirty-three young boys buried under his home. Gacy had been given ten years for that first rape and only served eighteen months.

These are just a few examples of the countless cases where a sex offender is released back into the world, after a short prison term, and with little or no treatment for his or her sexual deviancy issues.  The “treatment” that is given to these child rapists is useless.  These people need deep hypnoanalysis that penetrates the root cause of their sexual degeneracy, but no state government is going to spend the time or money to do this for them.

As a civilized and supposedly Christian nation, we cannot go around mutilating human beings by castrating them, so the bottom line is that the first-time a sex offender is convicted, he or she needs to be put in prison for life, regardless of the gravity of their offense or the number of victims.
