    Simply: no, whether convicted or not. This is my vote.

    Some of them have experienced it themselves and/or experienced other traumatic events. If you look a lot of the warning signs for these people were visible from an early age and they were either missed/ignored (due to not being seen as serious enough)/ or 'left to it' where such behavior gets worse and worse until the authority decides it serious enough and/or these vigilante groups get wind of them and then make them even more guilty.

    The way I see it is society is effectively creating this problem and then throws away the key at these people that were preventable. This doesn't sit right with me. In cases where they have experienced it themselves and they weren't picked up on in time/ignored whilst their brain is still developing is effectively society making innocent people into guilty ones and then wants to kill them off/throw away the key/ruin their lives forever more because they are too proud to own up to what they missed and then unwilling to give time or resources to work towards solution and fix the problem, which should have been given to begin with.

    This is not the society I wish to be a part of, nor how I want our society or country to evolve. This is not how we move forward and progress it is going backwards.

    These people probably have very little healthy relationships in their lives and need other people to get through their difficulties to stop themselves. Rather than approaching them with compassion to be able to become productive members of society, and modeling healthy relationships, society seems to see them as the next thing to hate and to publicize, wasn't that long ago that homosexuality was illegal for example.

    Vigilantes come in to watch their every move, lure them and use every word they say to try and entrap them into saying more and more to build an even bigger case against them to be locked up and/or damage their life in some other way. Rather than luring them and making them more and more guilty I wonder if any of them think about befriending them so that they have a mature adult relationship in their life and, since they may be emotionally stunted, have a conversation after about how their actions effect others and how it can damage someones life as some don't understand this, although some do.

    In order for these people with this sexuality to integrate into society and to control themselves etc they need to feel psychologically safe enough to confront this unhealthy behavior. In order for this they need to feel accepted and 'taken in' by others (adults). Rather than doing this society shames them, takes everything they care for in life that might be an incentive for them to get better, hates them and calls them every vile name under the sun, tells everyone who might be the most smallest of risk and may even be physically attacked. This results in a society of hate and where society doesn't learn.
    Also since they have been treated so badly they won't feel safe and their problems won't be addressed.

    Things should be put in place to help these people, and society could maybe block certain websites.

    The Papacy will excommunicate all of Britain for this and declare holy crusades upon the British Isles.

    The Roman Catholic Church will challenge this in court on the ground of religious persecution.

    Short answer, yes, however there needs to be a new 'fool proof' system to charge the death penalty. I'm not talking about a 23 year old sleeping with a 15 yo, possibly unaware of her age ,morally wrong ? yes however I'm talking about child molesters, predators and rapists but even the it can't just be decided by a jury the decision must be more extensively debated as a life is still a life

    No, they should receive psychiatric help.

    Most pedophiles don't want the urges they have and they hate what they are. Many end up commiting suicide. Granted, the ones who act on their urges should be imprisoned, but they're still sick.
    Thats why the title is CONVICTED - ones who have been found guilty, they should be punished full on

    They should hate what they are - to even think that way is disgusting if they know that their thought are wrong that is the first step to tackling it.

    And they shouldn't be given dolls etc to simulate their evil fantasy. they should be locked up indefinately 24 hours a day

    Yes, and my statement remains the same. Read it again. Convicted pedophiles should be imprisoned, but should also receive psychiatric help. It is their fault that they acted upon their urges, and for that there should be justice, but it is not their fault that they had those urges. It's a sickness.

    Should they be shot dead?
    No. Not at all.

    I'm against the death penalty completely, but even though it's a vile concept, paedophilia isn't the worst crime. Technically a 17 year old sleeping with a 15 year old puts him into that catergory. Although wrong, does it warrant death? God no.
