They are seeking to increase the penalties and parole time for violent sex pedophiles? I think they do not go far enough!! If the evidence is clear, I think pedophiles should be executed. I see no point in our tax dollars housing, feeding and taking care of these people. They are a huge threat to public safety and should be done away with. Our society would be better off without them.

Unfortunately there is no effective rehabilitation that I know of for these people so..they gotta go!!

If you want equality between sex obliterate the law. Sex Laws cause division and are unconstitutional but more over, wasteful. Putting any person in jail for sex is the most wasteful thing anyone can do. Sex is not murder its nice and the freaks that thought different are dead wrong. Free political prisoners around the world now becaue people that like sex are more sound minded than people who don't and people who do are sounder in mind.

California should enact a 1-strike law for sex crimes against children. There is no reason to give these monsters another chance to hurt another child.

I agree that there should be new laws to deal with sex offenders.

Just in Pleasanton, we have sex offenders living close to schools and there is nothing anyone can do about it because the laws protect these sex offenders.

Sex offenders should NOT be allowed to volunteer in any organization where minors are a part of. Sex offenders should not be allowed to have any contact with minors.
