Davy Crockett – Paedophiles & Capital Punishment

Davy Crockett – Pedophiles and Capital Punishment

David “Davy” Crockett (August 17, 1786 — March 6, 1836) was a 19th-century American folk hero, frontiersman, soldier and politician. He is commonly referred to in popular culture by the epithet “King of the Wild Frontier”. He represented Tennessee in the U.S. House of Representatives, served in the Texas Revolution, and died at the Battle of the Alamo.
Crockett grew up in East Tennessee, where he gained a reputation for hunting and storytelling. After being made a colonel in the militia of Lawrence County, Tennessee, he was elected to the Tennessee state legislature in 1821. In 1826, Crockett was elected to the U.S. Congress, where he vehemently opposed many of the policies of President Andrew Jackson, most notably the Indian Removal Act. Crockett’s opposition to Jackson’s policies led to his defeat in the 1830 elections. He won again in 1832, then narrowly lost in 1834, prompting his angry departure to Texas (then the Mexican state of Tejas) shortly thereafter. In early 1836, Crockett took part in the Texas Revolution and was killed at the Battle of the Alamo in March.

I’ve got a simple suggestion for monitoring where and why sex offenders travel: ban them from travelling at all.

Better yet, convicted pedophiles should face the death penalty, no exceptions, priests included. I consider that crime to be the worst imaginable, only superseded by the absolutely deplorable actions of sex killers like Paul Bernardo (who is alive and well, eating three meals a day, thanks to our tax dollars).

I cringe with disgust knowing our scarce tax dollars are used to jail these “people” or attempt to rehabilitate them. While I understand the goal of our penal system is rehabilitation, I question whether offenders of this nature can be rehabilitated. If they feel rehabilitation is possible, they can pay for it themselves.

I strongly believe capital punishment should be reinstated for the most heinous of crimes, such as pedophiles, if only from an economic standpoint. Jailing these offenders costs a six-figure sum each year while our country and province are deeply in debt.
