Equal Punishment?

Wednesday, June 28, 2006

I gotta get to bed, so I'll make this short. A local man was sentenced to 120 years for possession/distribution of child pornography, yesterday. When I say local, I mean local. He was from my town. That hits close to home. Way too close. But it begs a question... why are some people getting off on probation for raping kids, while this guy gets 120 years?

FYI: Some of the kids (in the pics) were HIS OWN. Yeah, that's pretty sick. He deserved all of the 120 years of his sentence. I am not disputing that, in any way. What bothers me is that people who have done much worse get slapped on the wrist and return to society, and some of them then rape and kill innocent children.

Yes, child porn is WRONG. It deserves a stiff sentence. I am just dumbfounded as to how a child rapist gets probation, while someone who possesses pics gets 120 years. A flaw in the justice system? I think so. If it were up to me, I'd hang them all...
