    Why, as a society, have we not accepted that predophiles present a constant and everlasting danger to society. They need to be removed from society for life. I’m sorry, but psychologist have no better chance of “curing” or helping these individuals control this prediliction, than they can make a straight person gay, a gay person straight, or a non-pedophile into a pedophile. How many children are the victims of repeat offenders? In instances such as these, the scales of justice weigh heavily in favor of lifetime incarceration. Lifetime incarceration of pedophiles serves the State’s interest in ensuring the health and safety of its most vulnerable citizens.
