Letter: Sex offenders must be severely punishedReading in The Forum about sexual abuse does not seem to bother a whole lot of people. It’s almost like just another case to them, and what are we to do?
What they need is good old punishment (harsh treatment), and I bet there would be a lot fewer sexual abuse cases in this country.
For example, in Singapore, a person found guilty of spraying a car with paint (it was a kid from the United States) was given 10 lashes with a whip and sent home. I bet the body sent his little brain a message not to do that again.
The harsh penalty for sexual abuse to young children should be real tough after the first offense and there likely would not be a second.
Every week in The Forum, we read about at least three sexual abuse cases. I think it is terrible and disgusting. We need tougher laws in this country: keep your hands off or expect the worst.
