I found the solution offered by a caller to the alleged raping and videotaping of said act involving a 10-year-old girl interesting. The Sound-Off caller offered an act of vigilante justice as a way of punishing an accused pedophile before he has had his day in court. I would like to suggest a different perspective on how to handle this case.
I would find a female prosecuting attorney to conduct the criminal proceeding on behalf of the state or people. I think having a female judge and jury would benefit justice due to the act of committing such a heinous crime. Let’ say that the predator is found guilty, what could be his punishment? I think that the PA could consider the following, if the family would be in agreement: Castration offers a possible choice. The procedure could be performed by a female doctor. The defendant could be sentenced to prison — wait for it — a women’s penitentiary, no less.
Let’s be clear here: all individuals accused of committing a crime are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. The aforementioned scenario is purely hypothetical.
