Appeasement in the courtroom

Largebill Pontificates blog points to a story where a man was raping a girl repeatedly over time from age 7 to 10. In Vermont, the home of Howard Dean and Sen. Leahy,Judge Edward Cashman had the opportunity to put this sicko behind bars for at least 8 years. Yet in a move that drips with the same mentality as liberal appeasement toward hostile dictators, the judge gave only 2 months claiming "he no longer believes that punishment works". According to the report:
"But Judge Cashman explained that he is more concerned that Hulett receive sex offender treatment as rehabilitation."

' "I discovered it accomplishes nothing of value;it doesn't make anything better;it costs us a lot of money; we create a lot of expectation, and we feed on anger,"Cashman explained to the people in the court. '
On the contrary, judge, the jail sentence works every time it is tried. The sentence is not given to rehabilitate, but to punish and keep criminals off the street to keep society safe. I have never heard of a little girl being raped by a man while he is in prison. I am for the death penalty or mandatory life sentence for any pervert that sexually assaults a child. No opportunity for a repeat offense, period. No expectation of rehabilitation, just get them away from our kids forever.
