(The Atlantic)   Patrick Drum was tired of seeing sex offenders hurt children. So he decided to kill them. Makes sense in a sociopathic kind of way, don't you think?   (theatlantic.com) divider line 220

This is why the only public registries should be of the dead.

The headline really should be a bit more clear about who he decided to kill, the sex offenders or the children. Because I wasn't sure at first.

Look like they've been...drummed out of society.

I personally know a sex offender.  My neighbor.  Not the "kiddy diddler" kind, but the "fell for jailbait" kind from what I can gather.  I won't excuse that in the slightest, but I would make the case that there is a huge difference.

Yeah, same here, there's someone on the registry in my neighborhood who apparently, looking at the charges against him, banged a 15 year old. Bad, needs to go to jail probably, but I'm not sure that the fact he did that needs to be announced to the neighborhood.  I mean, a sheriff's deputy knocked on my door to tell me he was moving in, and to hand me a copy of his rap sheet.  If someone who got out of jail for raping an adult woman, or even doing a stretch for murder, moved in here, that would not have happened.  And is this guy really any more dangerous than any of those people?

A sex offender registry listing should come with a free handgun and license to carry.

robrr2003: If only there was an easy way to not get on a sex offender registry.


Which is sad because there isn't.

So many people on the sex offender registry for things that shouldn't be crimes, let alone sex crimes, and they're lumped in with child molesters.

You don't have to be guilty in America, just targeted by the DA.

StrikitRich: Somebody watch too much Dexter?


If you get to the part in the last episode where Dexter drives into that storm and don't turn it off immediately, you've watched too much Dexter.

Sorry, that was OT.

I don't agree with the sex offender list. If they did their time, they should be able to move on with their life. If they're still a threat, they should still be inside. Yeah yeah, wait until I have kids, blahblahblah.

It's especially bullshiat if it's not made clear whether the guy raped a kid or was caught pissing in an alley behind a bar.

Though Drum had been planning for this night for weeks, he still spent most of the morning scrambling to get food and camping supplies together. He was always running late.

While Blanton was immersed in his game, Drum slipped out of the house and cut the power. Blanton was wearing a headset that let him speak with other players and Drum didn't want anyone online to hear what was about to happen. Calming himself, Drum pulled out a 9 mm pistol and charged inside. He hadn't thought about how hard it would be to hit Blanton in the dark and emptied the first magazine wildly into the blackness before realizing he'd need another. He dashed to get an extra from his car and to nab a flashlight. When he re-entered, Blanton, riddled with bullets, was on his cell phone. "Help, 9-1-1 I'm being shot," Blanton managed to say before the line went dead. Drum shone the light on Blanton's head and kept shooting.


Jesus, what a half-assed plan.

Yea. There should be a world of difference between flasher and child rapist.

Hero tag needed, along with a Congressional Medal of Honor.

And the families of the perverts should be punished for political crimes for defending them.

He went to prison for burglary, where he decided to take up vigilantism. Something tells me this guy is not exactly a criminal mastermind.

I agree with most on here:  The sex offender registry is too blanket-y, and lumps kiddy diddlers in with stuff that can be a stretch, at best, to be considered a genuine sexual threat to the younger members of our society.  I used to work with a guy who was a registered sex offender, because, years before, his girlfriend was 16 when he was 18, and her parents were non-too happy about their being horny teenagers.  (They had been, at the time I knew the guy, married for 12 years...I hardly think he was a threat to anyone, except her parents notion that their perfect little daughter was going to remain a chaste virgin until her wedding day.)

Now, that being said - I think there is a special circle of hell for pedos:  They've pretty much guaranteed that, not only have they caused one child irreparable harm, you've also unleashed on society someone who, when they become an adult. is farked up in a way that pretty much stays with them and affects how they function in society.

Put him in a large city area and he'd justify killing bad drivers.

2013-12-08 11:06:56 AM
We need to modify the sex offender list to weed out people who only pissed behind a bar, or banged a 17 year old when they were 18. The sex offender list should be for rapists and pedophiles. Drums was no criminal mastermind and not a hero, but he killed people who deserved it. Kiddy diddlers should be shown no mercy. Screw the rape apologists who would rather see your kids or girlfriend or wife raped then punish a sex offender.

Child molesters should be wiped from the face of the Earth, but I don't support vigilantism.  I'm sure if I looked it up, there are degenerates living within a few miles my house, but if they haven't done anything to me personally or to any member of my family, I have no reason to say a word to them, much less kill them.

So yeah, hunting people down and killing them, even if the people being killed are absolute scum-sucking wastes of flesh, is absolutely wrong.
 
2013-12-08 11:18:59 AM
I only support well planned and executed vigilantism. There should also be some sort of costume.

...the 1994 murder of 7-year-old Megan Kanka in New Jersey. Megan, who had light brown hair and round cheeks, was lured to a male neighbor's house with a promise that she could see his new puppy. Once she was in his grasp, the neighbor raped Megan and strangled her with a belt. He placed her body into a wooden trunk, assaulting her corpse once more as he did so, before dumping her in a local park. The next day, this man confessed what he had done. He had two previous convictions for sexually assaulting little girls, but had spent less than seven years total in prison.

Please explain to me why someone who did this would ever be released into society again?

The article goes on to explain that recidivism rates for sex offenders are lower than public perception. I honestly don't give a shiat. I don't believe in second chances for a crime this heinous perpetrated against a child. That he did it once should be enough to lock him away for his natural life.

All he got was 7 years. And after he'd been shown to assault other children.

I don't give a damn what some therapist thinks. The risk of failure with these people is too high. If you let a thief out and he steals again, he can make restitution.

How do make restitution for rape? You can't. The emotional cost to the victim is not something you can recompense or make right. Deliberately putting someone else in possible danger by releasing sex offenders properly convicted is a travesty of justice.

Criminal Minds story this past week was about this very thing. I wonder if this story is where they got the idea.

Lotta you didn't read the article he did screen who he killed and wanted to kill...it was just pedos

FTA: "He carried a list of 60 names and addresses of sex offenders. Drum picked those who had been charged with rape or other serious crimes. He didn't want to target someone who was on the list for peeing in public or another minor offense. "
 
2013-12-08 11:23:13 AM
Lets see how he feels about sex offenders when he gets to prison and gets raped behind bars .

He did his research... until he didn't.

Drum stabbed a fellow inmate with a sharpened, plastic utensil. The 19-year-old sex offender, who survived the attack, was serving time for failing to register. Drum wouldn't know until later that his victim had committed his sex offense when he was just 13 years old.

Most? Not a chance in hell.
A good percentage? Probably. A lot of my friends "dated" sophomores (who just turned 16) when we were seniors.
