A comment from Jody at

A comment from Jody at Common Sense Runs Wild:

I know I know. I am supposed to be on break, I just had to say terrific post [re: A Debt To Society That Can't Be Repaid]. My blog is blessed to have your words on my site. I noticed in the comments at thebandwagon you mentioned that your anti-death penalty stance was faltering because of these crimes. I understand completely, however, because of Terri Schiavo and the fight for the worth of life I believe that you being against the death penalty is the right belief. After supporting it, then being on the edge for a while, I finally made the decision that life can not be devalued no matter how much we want the life to be gone.

This is truly a faith issue, as I discussed in both of my posts that referenced Sarah and Jessica. We have to believe that God is the perfect Judge and justice will be done eventually, if not in this life then in the one to come. Does that give us solace or protect our children now? NO.

A "leper" island for the perverts to go seems ideal but the liberals would never let it happen. I guess the only thing to do is tighten laws to keep them in prison longer. To have zero tolerance for crimes against children and to be willing to give a life sentence for taking away a child's innocence. In some ways even if they do not take the child's life, they kill who the person they were and it takes so much rebuilding to restore that life.

If you'd like to blogburst this a bit, then count me in. The more attention given the subject, the better aware we are to help protect our children.

If you didn't know, I'm "blog sitting" for Jody this weekend.

I've been struggling with the problem of sexual offenders lately, and this was her response to my angst.

Here's my question to YOU: What is you're solution, or even a suggestion? Do you think a blogburst would help? Do you know of any web sites that are particularly insightful? If you are a parent, what are YOUR precautions to protect your children?

Please, I've been thinking about this a lot lately and I need YOUR insights! What do you think we can do as a society to stop this epidemic?
