Villiage of the darned
« on: January 29, 2010, 04:26:45 AM »
Down here in my State, there is a community that resides within the grounds of HM Prison at Ararat. It is an enclosed community of about 27 people. All are serious serial sex offenders that although have served their time, are still considered a danger to the community. Our Government enacted special legislation to determine that these monsters, should be kept under a special observation order, that is, they are not free. They are kept locked up for the rest of their lives in a few acres of ground because they show no signs of remorse or any sign of rehabilitation. This is pretty unique legislation IMO.

All civil liberty values aside, its probably a good thing, although I wonder if it is a good thing to have these people feed off each other. One wonders what these fiends scheme.

Does anyone else have the same thing in their community?

No, here they keep letting them out until they do it 3 times, then they just lock them away for life. :roll:

of course, 'life' being anywhere from 5 to 40 years in most cases until some deal is worked out addressing 'good behavior' escape risk and prison overcrowding.

we have a provision to keep those who are deemed a continuing danger to society, locked up.  this will usually apply to sex offenders.  finally the shrinks have figured out that they really can't be rehabbed.

there are also federal provisions for keeping folks like terrorists locked up.  regardless of the outcome of trials, they could be locked up forever.  of course, they could be found innocent and turned loose.....
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

See the thing is that sexual predators can never be truly rehabilitated.  The thing is they can't control themselves and if they get out sooner or later it's going to happen again.  It's really sad especially since we can't help these people all we can do it lock them up and throw away the key.  Another factor that scares the you know what out of me is that a sexual predator will often have on average 10 victims before they are caught.  Enough to think twice when a uncle touches a kid of not reporting it because he's family.  What we need instead of the governments around the world spending all this money to lock these sick people up.  We should be using the money to find a cure as it is a mental illness.
Take me to the land of milk and honey!!!

hand them over to the military.  live targets are better than pop-ups.

Take it easy mick!!  I find the common uses of it offensive, although I agree that in this case it was applied properly.  We still get the idea conveyed.

I like the over active bot. :-P
