hang them in the public square with a note around their neck saying why they were hung

Or better yet chain them up while they are still alive in the public square. Let them sit out an rot. Death with be slow and painful and will take weeks if not a month or so to occur. The will have to face all types of weather elements and the birds and isects will be picking at their skin while they are still alive.

I say put them all in a room and make them all take turns dressing up like a child for the rest to sexually abuse. I have always been an advocate of do unto others...or in this case, have done unto you what you have done to others.

This kind of brings up a point I've heard a few people put forth and, try as I might, I can't disagree with. Now, a particular case lime this with highly sophisticated setup it isn't really relevant, but in the case of the kid touched next door, does anyone think that perhaps our need for the harshest retribution in pedophilia cases is the reason why kids used to get touched, but now they're killed too.
The theory is that, with the laws as harsh as they are, the second you touch a kid you may as well kill him too because dead kids tell no tales and you're pretty much facing the same level of punishment either way. It didn't used to be that way when laws weren't as harsh. The kid got molested, the kid went home. Now the kid gets molested then goes to the woods in the trunk of a car before spending an indeterminate amount of time getting acquainted with a shallow grave or river. Now, I'm not saying these "people" don't deserve the harshest punishment imaginable, but at the same time, has that worked in reverse and been ultimately detrimental to our kids? A kid with issues because the troop leader molested him is a lot better than a small corpse.
I'm not arguing for lighter sentencing on pedophiles, but this theory does contain a certain logic. Obviously nothing that's been done has been a deterrent, but more kids die than used to."He's gone crazy," "You have to snap out of it," "Take your meds," or, "Don't be such a downer" serve only to mock, belittle, and make light of mental illness. Such phrases only continue the negative stigma and keep those who suffer from getting help. If these phrases, or phrases like them, are part of your at-hand vocabulary, you are part of the problem. #STOPtheStigma
