How many more?

If anyone is following that incredibly ugly situation unfold in Detroit... they have now found 11 bodies. Along with that sex offender from California who kept that girl for 18 years, society must reconsider how we deal with convicted sex offenders who complete their sentence and get back on the streets.

In the Detroit case, this animal had sought all the help he could and days after getting out he rapes another women. In both cases, police and probation officials were involved with appearances at both locations. The neighbors in Detroit had smelled a horrible odor from the property for a long time and as we know now, a probation officer was just their and did not go inside and left with no concerns.

The two recent cases in Boston at MGH, for me bring that problem to my home. Many people I know go to the General, work their and if it's not safe at MGH, it's not safe anywhere.

G Leone, Middlesex DA, has submitted a bill to allow juries to decide here in Mass, if a person is deemed a high risk sex offender, instead of the Judges, by a majority, they can have that person incarcerated. It's clear, something is wrong with the process and needs to be corrected immediately and I agree with Mr. Leone.

I would furlough first time drug offenders, put them one probation and use that expense for sex offenders. We must protect our kids, wives and mothers from the type of ugliness that seems to be increasing.

Law enforcement must put sex offenders and their whereabouts, at the highest priority and the Legislature should adopt mandatory sentences for level 3 sex offenders. Seeing the shrink and popping pills is not cutting it any more.

How right on target you are with this one. How can we as a society continue to allow these situations to occur? What will it take before we say enough is enough, our system is clearly not working , time to change the system. These people are sick, so we need to treat them. That does not mean we let them lose on our streets to hurt us. It is a fine line between being sick and being a criminal, but if their disease causes them to cross that line, then they have to pay the consequences. Appears this is a chronic condition, and the rate of curing these people is pretty low, so we need to lock them up where they can not offend again and again and again.

How about a space station for repeat level 3 sex offenders? That should work. Drop them off and that is it. Let them try to figure out how to feed themselves.

I wonder about this. Putting these repeat offenders in a locked setting for the rest of their lives can not be something that would meet with all that much opposition, can it? Who would oppose it? I am not saying torture them, or even jail them, but they need to be segregated from society and I have a hard time thinking anyone would speak against doing that and expect to get elected again. Remember people, there is no reason what is happening in Detroit could not happen here in Framingham. How would you feel about it then? Police protection? Detroit thought they had that also. Clearly the system is failing an lots of ways. Officers of the system, whether probabtion officers, parole officers, police officers, they all say they did their jobs and visted these guys and their homes, both in Detroit and the guy who held that woman captive for 18 yrs. If they don’t take the threat of these animals seriously enough to actually go in the house, and walk the entire property, then how can they say they checked them out? I wonder if either of these cases will be a wake up call to these officers of the system that they need to do more than the bare minimum required. These guys in Detroit have the deaths of at least 11 women to answer for. I certainly hope it is weighing very heavily on their conscience.

Why are we even discussing this issue? Does anyone really believe these people have the right to be walking our streets?

I heard Pillsbury say they should put them all on an island with no boat. Sounds like a plan to me. To add my 2 cents worth, make sure the island is surrounded by great white sharks.

Depressing to think in a society where we can track innocent people’s cell phone use, email, phone calls and activities because of the Patriot Act we can not seem to keep an eye on the scum of the earth. Does that make sense to anyone else, because it sure don’t make sense to me.

The island may have to include.. some of the people responsible for these nightmares to happen under our noses. In 2007 the cops were there, a city councilor was notified of a rotting human body odor.

Another case, in a long list of very sick people whose acts against humanity don't entitle him to go to the Island. I'm sure the death penalty will stop him, but when?

No matter what the color of the skin, it now appears we are desensitized to such horrible crimes and if this isn't a wake up call to the government, at all levels, to do something, other than letting them out, a few more of these discoveries will make the general population demand action.

Funny isn't it... that if you were at home or in your car or at work or just walking down the street and a cop smelled marijuana being burned, or being grown, they would either: kick in your door unannounced, bring in a swat team and shoot your dog, smash, break and destroy any part of the house that could be hiding money or drugs. In your car, they would bring in a drug sniffing dog, have you leave the car and they would illegally search your car until they found or planted something. At work they would fire you on the spot or get you to do a drug test on the spot. And on the street, they would search you, arrest you and through you in jail... because they smelled marijuana.

Perhaps it's time, as part of the law enforcement continuing education, they might want to spend some time smelling rotting human flesh, they may discover real crime.

Anon... they do have rights to work and live in our towns, constitutional rights.

The question is how do we protect society from violent sex offenders after they do their time.
