    I don't think its their fault that they are the way they are and we should not criminalize them because of it - it is inhumane and disgusting to do so.

    Yep, i dont think there is enough child abuse at the moment, we need more of it.
    Great idea, lets release all the people we KNOW will abuse children.. that way we will get a definite increase.

    But it's inhumane and disgusting for them to (not all) abuse children, it's a harsh situation and each case should be dealt with differently.

    Speaking as someone who was abused as a young child I don't think it's out of the question to imprison paedophiles at all. It's a heavy cross to bear being abused and while I do understand that there are often circumstances of why a paedophile has become the way they are (usually being abused themselves). However, I've been abused yet I don't go around doing inappropriate things to children and I never would. They are imprisoned to protect children, and I think it's right to imprison them.

    If the paedo's get out then the tax avoiders will want to get out... in the end nobody will be in prison.

    They don't choose to be pedophiles, but it is a choice to actually molest children.

    If it is not consenting adults - rape, child molestation - it is wrong.

    I may be wrong, but I believe that those who haven't necessarily harmed children before being caught, is because they got caught and didn't have the chance.

    ffs why are you all using` paedophile' to mean `child molester'? Pro tip: they don't mean the same thing. Anyway, OP is a troll.

    Yes. I believe they should.

    They should be released from whichever corrective facility they are currently housed, then escorted promptly-- albeit in a courteous fashion, straight into the gas chamber.

    Do you know what the gas chamber smells like? Pine oil.

    Yessirreeeeebob. Pine oil goodness for those child-abusing, moral-smashing dissimulates.

    I always thought that the official definition of paedophile, was an adult who has sexual thoughts and feelings for children. I know this would cause some of them to abuse children, but there are also those who don't actually act on their feelings or harm children, and so aren't really doing anything wrong.
