I firmly believe that sexual predators can never be rehabilitated and should never be allowed out of prison if they are ever convicted. I don't like to use the word "never" loosely either but when it comes to sick people that harm children, "never" is exactly what I mean. It seems our society lets these people out before others who have committed much less crimes.
The way I see it is that child molestors should be given the same sentence as people who murder. Taking away a child's innocence is murder to me and something the child can never get back and in some cases creates a viscious cycle with victim growing up to become predator. We need to quit thinking these people will ever change and quit giving them the benefit of the doubt. Once you cross the line and actually have sexual contact of any kind with a child, I feel you are too far gone to be saved or you wouldn't have gone through with it to begin with.
I know there will be people who disagree with me but I really believe these people cannot change even if they truly want to. There's faulty wiring somewhere in their brains and for the safety of other children they need to stay locked up until they die. It's just a risk that we should not be willing to take by letting them out. I feel the same about rapists in general as well.
