Florida: The Rape State

Posted on | August 18, 2013 | 61 Comments

Why does accused sex offender Kaitlyn Hunt think she has a “right” to have sex with 14-year-olds? Perhaps because she lives in Florida, where some officials seem to think enforcing the law is optional, and dangerous sex offenders are released to rape again:

594 sex offenders were convicted of new sex crimes after being reviewed under the Jimmy Ryce law since it took effect in 1999. . . .
For every sex offender the state has committed under the 14-year-old Ryce law, two others have been released — only to be arrested again for a sex crime.
From South Florida to the Panhandle, these men have cut a fresh trail of pain, molesting more than 460 children, raping 121 women, and killing 14.
Many offenders attacked again only days after Florida let them go. Six found new victims the same day they walked out the prison gates. . . .
[T]he head of the agency that screens sex offenders said she would investigate what changes should be made.
Esther Jacobo said the Department of Children & Families would analyze a sample of reoffenders the newspaper identified to determine what went wrong as it reviews the program from top to bottom.
“The only thing I can hope is that we come up with something better so that we get a larger percentage of these guys not to hurt people anymore,” said Jacobo, the agency’s interim secretary. “The biggest wish would be that we could stop it all. I’m not naive enough to think that that’s going to happen, but I think we can do better.”
Some changes already are under way. The department has convened a team of mental health experts to review how Florida identifies sex predators. And, on a single day in June, the agency suddenly recommended continued confinement for 19 sex offenders — as many as it had in all of 2012.
Those actions came too late to protect 8-year-old Cherish Perrywinkle.
This summer, Jacksonville mourned the little girl who was abducted from a Walmart, raped and strangled, her 60-pound body dumped behind a church.
Her accused killer: A registered sex offender freed three weeks earlier.

You can read the whole thing. On average, once every nine days — 42 times a year, for the past 14 years — Florida has released a convicted sex offender who will commit another sex crime.

    “We were just, you know, messing around and then suddenly – a sexual assault occurred!”

    Yeah, you coulda knocked me over with a feather. There I was, minding my own business, when that dumb bitch went and got herself raped!

    The problem is the way society is structured, where many individuals are abandoned while growing up (I don’t mean necessarily physically abandoned) or as adults – they are abandoned emotionally, spiritually, socially… So society produces and leaves all these perverts to do what they want…

    The “teaching” required is certainly much more on an experiential/societal level – and just a little bit on an intellectual level. I don’t know if you misunderstood me – I’m not against therapy. My point, however, is that if there is no intervention while the person’s psychology degenerates, then you have a pervert walking around waiting to act… And after they do harm to others, they must go to prison. No one is entitled to do harm and commit crimes because they are messed up.

    That’s why the people who say “sexuality is nobody’s business” are evil. They want society to look the other way regarding every kind of perversion, until it’s too late.

    I’m totally in favor of the death penalty for several kinds of crimes, including several types of child abuse. With effective legal procedural measures in place to avoid sending innocent people that are occasionally falsely accused to death. I think it doesn’t matter if a person can be rehabilitated. There are crimes that are so monstrous, that it has to be the death penalty.

    Like that homosexual monster called Frank Lombard. He adopted two baby boys with the sole purpose of raping them every night. Why is this man alive?

    the sentence should be the same. And women who enable male abusers ( spouses, boyfriends, step-fathers) – which there are a lot of – need to go to prison too.

    “From South Florida to the Panhandle, these men have cut a fresh trail of pain, molesting more than 460 children, raping 121 women, and killing 14.”

    Ironic to find this as the money quote in an item about an accused female rapist. “These men…”

    Why .45? A .22 LR will work just as well, and is cheaper.

    In California it’s being done by court order.

    We had one memorable case in NYC back in the 70’s where the pompous psychiatrist who was defending releasing a disturbed defendant was asked pointblank if he would take the freak in.

    He said no. The freak was released anyway. More people suffered for his “exciting life choice.”
