Offending Sex Offenders

While the mayors of various communities in the local forest chase some poor creepy loser from one rented room to another, the Yanks are at least trying to find some answers to this ancient dilemma. Not always successfully, but, as we said last week, at least they are trying.

On the other hand...

My friend, Bob, says, "If we think these guys are such a terrible risk - and they may be - why not just sentence them properly in the first to life or something very close?"

Works for me.

Suspending civil liberties randomly, which is what we appear to be doing or trying to do here at home, is rarely, if ever, a grand idea.
