let the families decide the fate of pedophiles within reason..

Im sorry if you have been hurt by a person like this. but are you going to hunt down and lock up or worse kill the person who violated them? No one is born this way, not one grows up wanting to hurt children. something bad has happened to them, changed their brain chemistry and its mental health issue. they can change but not with the govt. you are requesting more nanny/police state, which removes more of your rights and freedoms. get victims in counseling, therapy and have convict pay for it as they are in therapy also. Maine stops helping people the minute they get out of jail/prison. they have no budget, cause you can't legislate morality.

I think pedophiles should be locked up for the rest of their natural life. It has been said that there is no cure for them. when they ****** a young child, that childs life is forever destroyed. If we lock up a pedophile for 5, 6, 10, 20, years, and then release them, saying they have paid their dept and should be giving another chance.....WRONG WRONG. because those kids they molested are still suffering. Any crime against a child should serve a life sentence. In maine that is not true. they are released to offended again. If any pedophile is released he should have to notify his neighbor's as they do in Texas. I also think they should have to post a sign in their front yard that says " I am a PEDOPHILE and I am a danger to all the children who live within a 100 miles of my residence
