A Pedophile's Defense

Apparently, Cleveland has problems from Rocky River in the person of Phillip Distasio who admits to being a pedophile for the last twenty years. He has a good defense though (not). He claims that sex with boys is therapeutic (the article did not mention for whom) and a part of the new religion he has established. Distasio intends to challenge the constitutionality of the laws against pedophilia.

I'm betting his chances aren't good.

Ai, yi, yi! Gimme a break! :/

My daughter asked me what "rationalize" meant this weekend. I'm sure Mr. Distasio could give her a lovely example, but any word pics he might offer would send her to therapy for life.

I'd say he has at least as much a constitutional argument as the argument for gay marriage. That was considered just as outrageous, sick, and impossible as legalized pederasty 15 years ago.

Must be the "I am afraid of women, so I molest boys and am going to Hell" church. LOL

I pick up the Cecil Whig once in a while to read about land use issues and last week there was a story aobut a dead 11 year old found in an Elkton area golf course.
A 52 year old man was arrested in the case, a known sex offender (who had done a one year stint out of 10 year sentence-9 forgiven for his last crime).

This man had a series of sex crimes against minors through his whole life, never doing more than a short spate of jail time here and there.

It goes to the data that these monsters are led by impulses so ferociously evil that they will stay criminals and perpetrate evil upon the innocent with no remorse or self control and no stopping.

I do not advocate killing them although it is within my impulse to do that!

But castration comes to mind be it physical or chemical....

I think putting someone to death for abusing children repeatedly is a judicious choice.
