Cornwall police released a statement yesterday announcing that they have placed 19 year old Justin Hebert under arrest, and charged him with the possession of child pornography. He has since been released on numerous conditions and will appear in court on February 24 2015.
While I am still completely disillusioned with the “justice system” and it’s approach and severe under punishment of depraved child predators, I am glad that this disgusting freak has at least been caught early. Some people may hope that Justin Hebert gets some help, that he even deserves help, that maybe he is “sick”.
After reading countless articles and doing much research on the subject of pedophilia and their vile, predatory behavior, I have come to understand certain things about this disgusting phenomena. The first being that these people are truly broken somewhere in their minds, and are UNABLE to form proper human attachments. Some convicted pedophiles will claim that they are ill, or that they learned this behavior through enduring past abuse themselves. Some of them even claim that pedophilia is a sexual orientation in the same manner that heterosexuality and homosexuality are sexual preferences!! There are even organizations whose sole purposes seem to be normalizing, and even defending pedophilic behavior! Some even go so far as to rename the pedophiles “Minor attracted persons”, or some other equally nonsensical label. One particularly despicable organization is The North American Man/Boy Love Association which states as it’s mission: “removing the age of consent”, among other things. http://www.nambla.org/
Regardless as to whether pedophiles suffer from a mental disease, or just have a particular sexual orientation is not my concern. My concern is that both of these explanations remove the responsibility from the offender. It’s either not their fault because they are sick, or there’s nothing perceived to be at fault for because they are just acting on their “natural” sexual impulses. If we are told that these degenerates can not help themselves, that that’s just the way they are wired, then I see NO place for them in society. They must be expunged so as to protect the truly innocent and in need of protection, the children who cannot form their own organizations and advocate for their own rights and bodies to not be violated!
In our society of over the top political correctness, this is one issue that I will not be swayed by. It literally makes me sick to my stomach to know that a convicted sex offender faces less time in our criminal justice system than a convicted drug dealer! Now, don’t misunderstand, I don’t think drug dealing is necessarily a good thing and I certainly don’t promote their use. I believe that length and severity of sentences should fit the severity of the crime! How can anyone argue that stealing the innocence of children is any less of a crime than selling illegal drugs?? Why is it then that every news story I read about a convicted child abuser tells me that the offender was sentenced to “time served”, “alcohol and drug treatment”, or a very short prison stay? That every news story I read about convicted drug dealers indicate that the offender has been put away for several years?
My belief is that child abuse, and particularly pedophilia is being NORMALIZED in our society. Upon reading this, some might think that I am being extreme in making this statement, but look around yourself and see just how sexualized our children’s world has become. An in depth article relating to pedophilia and our society’s increasingly lax attitude towards it is in the works!
