    Ur thoughts on it. Do you think people should still be punished even after the child has grown up?

    Anyone who hurts kids or women should be punished. Seldom do people change for the better.

    There are many kinds of abuse. Child abusers should be punished harshly. Rapists should be killed. No if's and's or but's. Physical abusers should be locked up. Psychological abusers should be hospitalized. I am also a firm believer that every once in a while some kids need an a$$ whooping and the way things are set up they aren't getting them and that's a big problem with our up and coming generations.

    I was a LEO for 10 years, unfortunately its not up to you. As a LEO you can only protect them temperarely, the states DHS is responsible for the rest. The bad thing is that ive seen kids be taken from their unsafe/unclean environments and then they go right back after a couple of days. I have also personally reported several households to DHS about unacceptable and filthy environments, and nothing was investigated. The most you can do as a LEO is too write the case, get the proper arrest warrants, and take the parents off of the streets for a while. After that its the states responsibility to do the right thing.

    I'm talking about putting their hands under hot water, strangling them and mentally abusing them

    In that case, put them in jail. If possible, make sure their cell mate is the biggest, meanest guy in the prison. ;)

    People like that shouldn't be allowed to have kids! If they do have them, they should be taken away for ever.

    There should be no statute of limitations on that sort of abuse, IMO. I do have a problem with some bureaucrats' definition of abuse & they usually cause more harm than good in those cases.

    My parents are in the foster care system. It's sad, seeing some of the children they get. They had one little girl, about the age of my son, who had cigarette burns all over her arms, legs, genitals, and the bottoms of her feet. My step Dad would get so mad thinking about it that he could barely even look at the poor kid until they all healed.
    People who abuse children in such a way deserve a medieval punishment.

    Beautifully well put. What I don't agree with is killing child rapists. That's too nice for people like that.

    Yes those people should still be punished.

    I'm glad to see you channeling your energy in a positive direction. I know someone that is in social services, he works for a county agency but is employed by the state, idk. Anywho, he specializes in children's services and sees this on a rugular basis. He has since adopted abused kids.

    If any one thinks this doesn't happen much because it isn't on the news much, think again. It's all around, and the current punitive system encourages it.

    The last folks that should be involved in investigating child abuse cases are ones with a personal agenda. Lots of people get wrongly put in jeopardy because of the blinders of personal agendas and axes to grind and vendettas.

    When the only tool you got is a hammer, every problem is a nail

    Just because you have personal exposure does not mean you have a personal agenda..sometimes ( and more often than not) those that have been exposed personally can help the next victim the most...
