Default sexual ofenders to guantanamo

so i was watching a documentary about sexual offenders in jail. and i realised they dont get lifetime/death penalty right away.

then i thought about how everybody is saying we should give stronger punishments to sexual offenders.

and how everybody says guantanamo is awful.

so i simply added the 2 together.

discuss.

personaly i think sex offenders should get like the worst stuff hapen to them. like maybe slicing off their fingers, before waterboarding them, before tying their hands to a car and drive away. and then start again next day. maybe slice of their ***** eventually.

No, what he's saying is you're playing with matches in a field of dry grass.

You honestly thought this topic was a good idea? Come on man. You're just throwing two touchy topics out there for open discussion, and this is obviously going to get locked.
I mean...

No. I believe that sexual offenders are horrible, awful people and among the few people I consider worthy of the death penalty (depending on how horrible of a sex offender they are, for example a one-time pedophile I wouldn't condemn but a serial rapist should be hung Iran style, considering that the needle costs far more than they're worth), but there are certain things which we should not subject anyone to regardless of their crime, and among them is torture.

Would you rather have them die or be tortured then?

Honestly I agree that sexual offenders should get a bigger punishment.

Really? Like wow...
Sexual offenders are terrible but putting them through that is too much. Guantonomo Bay is pretty harsh but sexual offenders don't need to go there.

Guantanomo is for war prisoners...

Anyways, I consider murderers worse than sex offenders, so I don't think it's as big as deal as other people.

i dont agree, cause if you murder someone, then they die and thats it maybe like 1 hour of pain at worst. but if you rape them then they're gonna carry that with them for the rest of their life. so it would be several years of pain.

On the other hand, you're dead.

It depends on the person. Someone you kill, yeah, it's over, but they don't ever get to live life again. Someone who's raped can recover from it and be all the stronger. That which does not kill you only makes your stronger, after all.

Ever heard of the term "a fate worse than death"?

There are torture methods that make you beg for death. They say tying a person to a chair and slowly dripping water on their head in a pitch-dark room does wonders to drive them insane. Or at least begging to die. Water torture too. Fingernail removal/crushing fingers is also pretty effective.

Some people don't recover from rape and commit suicide. I guess that counts too.

It honestly depends, so I'd say they're about equal, bottomline.

I got scared when I read the first part of the title, but when I got to "guantanamo" I sighed with relief.

Punishment? I thought jail was for rehabilitation?

You also have to look at the other side of the spectrum: When a sex offender is released from jail, they're put on a registered sex offender website, watched constantly, losing family and friends, probably won't be able to sustain a relationship, trouble making new friends, losing job opportunities, etc. Basically, it destroys their former life. In today's society, people view being social out-cast or losing everything worse than death.

I'm not defending sex offenders, I'm just saying you have to look at the whole picture.
