Should Peadophiles be allowed to live in society with everyone else?

I don't think most should be allowed to return to the community. Especially those that have been evaluated by psychologists and were found to have a compulsion, an impossible to cure "drive" to commit pedophilic acts

However, if it is the case that pedophiles are biologically inclined towards pedophilia, if they can't "help" it; they shouldn't be locked in dungeons or executed. We have the right to protect ourselves and our children, but we can't rationally seek vengeance against people who are not in complete control over their actions.

I believe we should set up minimum security prisons, campus style (look it up), which provide a community where pedophiles can continue to live, work, and learn without being put near any child. They would live the rest of their lives in an essentially gated community; continuing to contribute to society through work while never being allowed back in.

The pedophiles are locked away safely; they aren't forced to remain homeless on the outskirts of cities, they aren't allowed to roam free through the towns, and they are certainly not going without retribution.

This sort of procedure is punishment; it is justice, but it is also humane. It's the best compromise I can think of in what is a rather complicated and sensitive problem.

same can be said for psychopaths, since they can't help their actions.

Clinical psychopaths are put into psychological institutions, not prisons. That's why we have the "insanity" plea, it means they go into psychiatric care, not standard prisons.

im sorry to say that peadophiles should not even b classed as humane. they are a disgrace to the community really. any 1 who allows a pedo to live in a home after being convicted obviously has no kids

Considering the damage that is done to society They really should be locked up indefinately. Sure give them all the treatment you want 'whilst' they are locked away and maybe someone will find a cure or a therapy that is 100% successfull.

As for reabilitation and takeing risks with children, we all know what the answer is there. We have had plenty of experience over hundreds of years showing that they reoffend.

What about the millions of children who grow up into adults who would never dream of hurting a child ?

No more lame arse excuses for putting any child at the risk of this kind of horror...PLEASE.

Its about time we started really addressing the true consequences that peadophiles create in our society. No more not dealing with it appropriately because they are sombody's father, mother or brother,sister etc. Children's safety is far more important than the feelings of the peadophile. They are the OFFENDER. Wouldnt it be great if we found a cure, a solution...yes but until that time keep them away from the children.

Personally i would show them about as much compassion as they show the children they violate, and as for free love,

What could be more innocent and full of love than our beautifull children? These people pray on the innocence, loveing and trusting nature of children !

There are extreme cases i agree but most of these people know exactly what it is they do to these children.

So help them but only if they are locked away.

It is high time to stop takeing horrific risks with childrens welfare.

More compassion for the victims please, more help for the victims and rehabilitation for the victims.

The childrens protection comes first before the liberties of the offender, It allways astounds me that more phocus is on the offender rather than the victims.

If your reasoning compassion leads you to help the peadophile because they have been abused themselves then surely by keeping them away from society's children would have a dramatic affect on reduceing the amount of offenders out there surely? Please wake up and Stop takeing risks with our children.

PS For those who organise the abduction of children and abuse them for videos or traffic them in an organisation , I think they should be put to death...Or suffer extreme hard labour for LIFE...meaning...until they die. These people are not stupid, they know what right and wrong is, they seem to be able to organise themselves pretty well dont they.

but what about humanity? or rights of the person? sure they've done an incredibly inhumane thing but we've got laws that protect us from being locked away for the rest of our life, thats why the life in prison is only 25 yrs without parole.

I think I am a compassionate person but when it comes to peadophiles and what they could possibly do to children it makes me angry and sick to my stomach even thinking about it. I can't stand people who argue 'what about human rights?'. How about they LOSE their human rights when they stop acting like proper human beings. Anyone who can argue that preying on children is 'proper' is also sick. Capital punishments needs to be brought back for these offenders. I have young children myself and the thought of anyone hurting them makes me want to scream. Let's face it, rehab rarely works. Their illness, or defect or whatever you want to call it is hardwired. And organized child abductors, abusers, need to be hung. Not slapped with a tiny prison sentence. Fortunately I don't have family members who are 'afflicted' with this 'condition' as one argued but if he offended and we couldn't help it, let's just say I wouldn't want my kids around him. WE have to protect our children people!!! What are we going to do about it!

personally, i think they should be locked up, or given the right amount of help to change their way of thinking. when they successfully complete everything to get them out of that mindframe they should then be allowed to live in society but with certain precautions, such as near a police officer or under constant surveilance. not just be allowed to live in normal society, where there are children everywhere.

I believe pedophiles are one of the hardest types of criminals to reform. They almost always repeat their crimes.

Side: yes, they know about free love

I believe that's true.

People who are pedophiles really do have a kink for only young people. It suggests a genetic type of problem which gets them predisposed to be that way. And let's not forget about the sexual abuse most of these paedophies endure themselves.

Whil I think paedophiles should live in society, laws should be far better then they are to try and control them.

Side: yes, they know about free love

Pedophiles are scary, sick, disgusting people, and they add absolutely nothing to society. If you were a young teenager, would you rather walk down the street, knowing that there may be pedophiles about, or would you rather walk down the street thinking, "ahh, I'm safe from those psycho freakshows"

Side: No, they should be locked up

Hell no pedophiles do not deserve to be, what they do is sick twisted and disturbing and they should all be locked up in solitary for the rest of their sad fucked up lives.

Side: No, they should be locked up

Pedophiles have lost their right to be normal once they have committed something against nature. It just isn't right to go for underaged kids and do stuff to them. Pedophiles are sick. They should not be even allowed to live in society like everyone else, so that they can keep on preying on little kids. No one would feel safe when they know that someone like that is living in the neighbourhood.

I was abused as a child and as a teenager,, I do believe there should be a vigil anti when it comes to convicted peado's and yes the only good nonce is a dead 1,,,, i have 4 children 3 girls and a boy,, not once even with other children felt I should carry on any form of abuse neither have my brothers,,, so the theory of "you were abused, you will abuse" is a load of crap,, the stat's are well wrong in fact if a new poll was done it would indeed prove that the adults who carry on abuse enjoys it the filthy git, or is truamatisied they feel its the way of life,, personally i feel thi is a blooming excuse,,, here in england they are bloody praised there is and never will be a justice unless we the world can stop it by killing them all,,, ihope the world agrees,, there was a fella in england who had urges to go and harm a child although he hadn't harmed a child he cut his nuts of so he didnt and died,,,, i give respect to that and any other of you who even slightly feel or have images in your head kill yourself and do children a favour let be young and innocent this world has enough already without you mug's messing it up for them just allllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll child abusers just DIE

Pedophiles are attracted to children, attracted to the control and vulnerability of children their weakness and them being unknowing of what to do , the control and manipulation of our most precious resource, our future. They should be shot in the head, or if that is too much for some people castrated, not chemically castrated because they can easily take something to return the means to rape have all their sexual organs removed so they don't have the urge any longer nor the means, Statically each pedophile convicted has raped 250 children(those are reported cases think of the children who can't speak) that is 250 + children per pedophile whose lives and their family's been shattered it doesn't just affect the victim, it effects the family, and the community and will effect all involved for life. why should they be pampered? they took what was not their's to take. They lost all rights to being treated with dignity the minute they stole a child's right's away, the right to grow up not being violated. they are disgusting vile non treatable demons no longer human yes they were once innocent children some who were violated some who were not ( a high percentage were not, but suffered child abuse, another percentage lived perfectly normal and happy lives but like the control and manipulation, the perversion of innocence) Yes these monsters are children of innocent people guess what many have said they would rather them dead remembering them for what they were not what they became. Time to put a stop to this, millions of lives are being affected, i feel the same way about rapists and men who pray on naive teenagers they have no control, there are females and males who are raping either lock them up , euthanize them or remove sexual organs so they no longer have the means , no means and no urge equals safety. may sound sick to some but i think its sicker to allow them on the streets to harm innocent children.This has been a plague that needs to be stopped. This effects the victim, family and friends of the victim the community and the world, this also effects the pedophiles family, and friends all this hurt needs to stop it has gotten out of control, everyday a child is abducted raped and possibly murdered striking fear and heartache for everyone. From a victim, stop allowing this.

sigh..u say u want to destroy the ones who hurt children..but does it hurt i was molested by 3 different men and none caused me any pain and with one it lasted for years

was it right what they did?no but it doesnt make it right by causing them a lifetime of pain for their mistakes in life

jail is a deterant a way for criminals to pay their debt to society then hopefully join outside life as a productive member of society

No, lock them up forever (or even better, just execute them).

Do i really need an argument? I think those who actually try to defend what pedophiles do will be judged by the people.

Side: No, they should be locked up

No, they cannot be rehabilitated and should be destroyed. We are the only species on this planet that has any say in its evolution. We should exercise our ability to chose.

I guess you've never had a family member turn out to have been afflicted with the disease.

Maybe if that were the case, you'd think a little differently.

I don't have kids but i believe that non convicted pedophiles should stay. Pedophilia is the attraction to younger kids (don't know exact age) but that is not a harm towards society. That is only a concern. A pedophile who acts should be locked up. This question needs to be more specific.

The law should not imprison people for crimes they have not committed yet, but if it was somehow public knowledge that someone was a pedophile but had not yet acted upon their perversion, they should not be given the opportunity to do so. Treatment, restrictions, and surveillance might be in order, at the very least.

Consider what would happen if someone confessed to a desire to murder; interventions should and probably would be made, although at this point they would not include jail time. Someone who has to struggle constantly with the real urge to severely violate the rights of other citizens is probably not best left to their own devices.

They aren't normal. They live outside the law that the general society created and abides by and therefore should not be allowed to continue to act like they belong.
