Fight to Keep Children Away From Killer Is Lost

This story makes remarkably clear the disparity in treatment between those who physically abuse or even murder children and those accused of having sex with them.

Hundreds of thousands of (mostly) men are serving extremely long, life-destroying sentences in U.S. prisons for some form of alleged sexual contact with minors, often consisting of little more than fondling and, sometimes, nothing whatsoever.

If they are so lucky as to ever get out (and not be re-incarcerated in civil commitment programs) their chances of ever leading a normal life again-let alone one that includes children-are extremely unlikely.

In this story, a woman who had murdered both of her children while they slept is released from a psychiatric hospital years later and is now a stepmother to two more kids. The kid's natural mother, now divorced from their father, is, naturally, concerned about this state of affairs, as any sane person would be.

But the courts have denied her bid to keep her children from living with their stepmother, believing her (the stepmother) to be fully recovered from her "temporary insanity". Not only that, it is asserted that, because she was "temporarily insane" at the time she shot her two daughters, "no crime was committed".

Let's be blunt: we live in a country which values the sexual chastity of children over their very lives.

Sex crimes are treated differently than other types of crimes because of the overwhelming evidence that the motivation behind these crimes are psychological. In other words, it's not a social or economical problem, it's a clinical one. Thus, the disparity.
