Convicted paedophiles receive life in prison

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
This is a story from my state, Western Australia, but I felt that you guys might find it interesting. I wanted to share because my brother was one of the prosecutors who put these monsters away for life.

In 2005, two men snatched a 14-year-old boy off the street, kept him hostage in their home for nearly three weeks, and during that time committed a number of depraved and heinous abuses upon him. They were caught by chance - a woman having a cigarette outside her work noticed them acting strangely, and instead of ignoring her hunch, went to the police and reported them - thereby enabling the police to identify one of the men and obtain a search warrant for their house.

The men pled guilty to all charges, except the one of conspiracy to commit murder. It was the prosecution's allegation that after they were `finished' with the boy, that they planned to murder him. They found evidence to support this at their house - including maps of rural bushland areas known in Western Australia as a dumping ground for bodies (including a victim of the Claremont Serial Killer - who still remains at large after nearly 10 years).

Yesterday they were convicted of all charges, and face life in prison.

Here's the story

We do not have the death penalty in Australia, and I'm not sure if it would apply in this case, however, these men will face a dangerous and very violent life in prison, as do all convicted paedophiles. GOOD.

I am not in favour of the death penalty, but sometimes, when I read about a story such as this, I wonder - do you think paedophiles should be executed or castrated - especially if found guilty of crimes with a murder charge included?

Hung from the highest tree would work for me.

I have very mixed emotions on that. I will say I would not mourn a pedophiles death.

glad they went to jail shame, really to waste all that meat with some great whites swimming around down there.

If the prisons and 'life sentences' in Aus are anything like they are in the UK then
they probably won't serve life in prison or be allowed to mix with other inmates.

Personally I think they should be castrated and then given the death penalty.

Why should they be allowed to live in prison and fantasise over the depraved acts
they have committed? and they will because they will be housed with other Paedo's.

I'm with you on that. Make them walk the plank!!! It's not really a death penalty, just "see if you can swim to shore". Oh and we'll make sure you're freshly bleeding and your starting point is in an area frequented by sharks.

Same here, I'm as anti-death penalty as you can get, but then stuff like this happens.

I haven't been able to research enough on surgical castration to see if it is an option that I am for, but because this guy isn't going anywhere he could be a good candidate for chemical.

Honestly I think death is the way to go. I don't think caterating them would do any good. I have no sympathy or remorse for pediphiles none at all.

Like this case that is going on locally here:

I hope everyoneo of one them in that family get sentenced to death.

I think it is a waste of my tax dollars to feed and shelter pedophiles. I would not mourn their death either, as others have agreed. I hope they are at least put into general population and not protected by being separated...

Freshly bleeding as in slicing their hamstrings before they are dropped overboard.

If these two inmates are kept among the general population then I would expect them to be killed before too long. Child molesters/abusers/murderers are the lowest of low in prison and are treated accordingly by the other inmates IF they aren't kept separately from them. I'll chip in a carton of cigs to the inmate/inmates who "off" them.

As far as the death penalty is concerned, I have no problem with it as long as they are certain the right person is being executed.

Holy Cow Ping, those people look like something that crawled up from the depths of Hell, how awful. I see evil in their faces.

I'm against death penalty. I do not think we solve violent acts with more violence and I think it's playing God too much. It shouldn't be up to other people whether another person lives or dies IMO. Canada does not have the death penalty.

Well said. I absolutely agree. And yet when cases like this come along the first thing in my head is that they deserve death. But it's not my job to decide. My favourite monologue from Lord Of The Rings is when Gandalf is talking to Frodo in the Mines of Moria, and says,

`Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgment. For even the very wise cannot see all ends.'

So true.
