ECK!!! This report makes me sick. Physically sick. Those poor little girls. David Blair Feathers is an animal!! NO....I take that back. Even animals treat their kind better than this, and life in prison is too good for this one. Now what happens? He has more rights in jail than the little girls he molested? BS!! TY, Terry, for this. (keep me posted, thanks).

It is up to the community to look after our children and put predators like this away. We all need to keep a closer watch on our children, provide them safe places to just be kids and consider each one OUR responsibility. The reason for the saying 'IT takes a village to raise a child" is simply that it DOES take a village to raise a child.

This makes me ill. This man deserves the death penalty. These children will have to live with this for decades to come. That monster is so sick. Oh, just let the prisoners take care of him. Put him in with the general population in prison. Noted.

I don't think calling men like these "monsters" or "animals" will do us all any good. Why? Because by calling them such, we remove them from our kind, the human kind that is, and then we become numb, i.e we don't realise that this kind of man is EVERYWHERE.

They're not parked in zoos, like animals, they don't have a special and ugly shape, as a monster, that would allow us to spot them immediately, but they are under the shape of MEN. Yes, men, like me, my brother, my father, my teachers, the postman, my neighbour, ANYONE. What makes them do what they do is a perversion that belongs to, unfortunately, the mankind.

Same thing, the death penalty won't do us, the victims, or the offenders any good. Because by doing the same thing those so-called "monsters" do, we're putting ourselves in the very same category. When you raise your kids, do you try to behave the best way possible? Or do you do in front of them things you order them not to do? Which would be the most efficient? In my opinion, it's the same thing. I say, no human being has a right of life or death on another human being, why would I be any different, any better to do this?

I have no miracle solution, no panacea, and yet, I do believe that the way our society deals with this is not the right one. We still need to evolve on that, in my opinion.

I beg to differ, Florian.

This is a situation monstrous enough to forgo being "politically correct," and there was no kindness in these acts displayed by the perpetrator. If we continue to minimize this situation, in my opinion, it only serves to justify this behavior.

Although I do not believe in the death penalty, I do believe that the recidivism rate for such people is disappointing enough to warrant locking them away -- to be dealt with accordingly by fellow inmates.

Each of these victims will now have to face the rest of their lives recovering from the self-absorbed momentary pleasures of this thoughtless scurge on humanity.

Carole,

I see your point, believe me, I understand how emotions are involved in this. They are because we are human beings, therefore sensed people, compassionate people. I, too, while reading/seeing horrible crimes, one of the first thoughts that comes to my mind is "that one should be killed the exact way he did it." But the point is to not be overwhelmed by our/my passions, and go back to our/my senses. This is why we have justice. Because if "justice" was made by our passions, emotions and feelings, this earth would be a huge chaos, a lot worse than it is now : it would be everything but fair. We need to think straight to be fair.

And I strongly believe that the death penalty makes us a violent and uncivilised people, the same way these criminals are violent and uncivilised. It is not to be "politically correct" that I stand on the side of the complete abolition of the death penalty, but because I strongly believe in it.

But then, as you said it, problems arise : recidivism is one. We don't seem to be able to "cure" some/many of them. Yet, it doesn't mean, to me, that we have to choose the easy way out by simply getting rid of them by killing them. Our evolution is not over, we still have many things to discover and fix. How we see and judge crimes is a big one. Like I said, I don't have the panacea to cure those criminals, to stop them from doing it again, but I won't ever stop looking for one. One that wouldn't involve them being killed.

There are many bad aspects in the death penalty, in my opinion : killing an innocent. The abuse of it in some countries where you get killed for nothing, or like I said in my previous message, doing something we condemn. If I push the death penalty logic to its fullest, should we kill the judges/juries who choose the death penalty for a criminal? Should we kill the executionners? Oh, no, wait : let's kill every soldier who has killed. Even more those who have killed civilians, children.

In the end, all that thinking always brings me back to one major fact : I don't believe in killing someone. And as much as many people won't ever change their mind on the fact that they think that death penaty is fair, I won't ever change mine and will always think it is not.

But, believe me, Carole, I understand where you're coming from, I really do, and appreciate that you raise your voice without insulting me, when many people tend to do so when their opinions are confronted to their opposite. Which is worth a green star (a lot more in fact, but I don't plan on giving money either lol) :)

(Hmmmmmmm . . . I hadn't even considered the money aspect!)

Just kidding!

Thanks for your sensitive reply, Florian.

It is a fact that what turns people on sexually is set at a fairly young age. What turns you on will always turn you on. No amount of aversion therapy does any good. You can not cure a pedophile, you can only keep them locked away so they can not reoffend, which they certainly will if they get a chance. These people are damaged past the point where they can be cured.

So right, Rebecca! My first allegiance is to innocents.

I believe that children are our First Priority. Whether it's your child, grandchild, niece or nephew or a neighbor's child. I take my responsibility very seriously, and monitor all activities of playing, shopping, going out to eat, etc. Not that I don't trust the children....I don't trust the adults that I don't know. And yes....as Deborah said...it does take a village to raise a child. Good comments, above. Thankx!! Happy St. Paddy's day, ya'll. xox

I hope he gets the maximum penalty allowed by law...which really isn't enough in my book but maybe he will roast slowly where he is going in the end. Thanks, Lone

@ Gran Pat... You said "...I don't trust the adults that I don't know..."

With all due respect, I'm not as worried about the adults I don't know as the ones that I know! It has come up time and time again of mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, uncles, aunties, trusted friends, etc
molesting/sexually assaulting/abusing the children that are in their care. There have been cases where a woman has been married to a man for 20 odd years, only to wake up one day to find out that her husband has been engaging in child pornography.

While I agree we need to be aware of the danger that strangers pose... I think a more immediate danger is the one that people we trust pose. After all, who are pedophiles? They're not monsters walking around with big tattoos on their foreheads - you can't point to some random person and go "Aha! That's a pedophile". They are men and women - fathers, mothers, uncles, aunties, sisters, brothers, nephews, nieces, grand daughters, grand sons - they are people we know. And they are living among us. We just need to be vigilant and be very aware.

Put this monster away!! Our county is very rural and we have a preponderance of sexual predators. A constant worry for parents. BTW whatever is "second degree" rape or penetration? especially with minors. Thanks Terry
