    idk about specific cases but i think more sex offenders should be caught and put in jail. 21 years is a very long sentence, that's more than some murderers get i think. i don't think the punishment of the perpetrator can heal the victim. when someone has been abused the damagw has already been done you know?
    what upsets me more is the amount of rapists and sex offenders that go free, the amount of reported sex crimes that aren't properly investigated and also the way that the legal system treat the victims. i get that it shouldnt be easy to lie and say someone raped you but it isnt ok that so few rapist are sent to jail

    de gräver i parken och frosten i marken blir ett försvar
    och vid hörnet av kyrkan där järnvägen går har de spärrat av
    någon ligger i gräset med frostiga kläder, så stilla och vit
    och blåljusen blinkar, tänk vad man kan göra med en liten kniv
    och jag vet inte varför men jag återvänder alltid hit
    det var väl något vi gjorde, något vi sa här som förändrade mitt liv

    They should be jailed for life and even that's not long enough considering the damage they inflict.

    21 years is a pretty long time, assuming they serve the entire sentence. It's enough to basically waste the life of a younger offender and practically see older offenders off to their grave.

    Plus I think a lot of people have heard how sex offenders are treated in prison. Assuming those rumors are true (most of us probably don't have first hand evidence of this) it adds a bit more severity to the sentencing.

    Not that I'm saying it makes it any better, but I'm fairly sure the age of consent in the UK is 16 (correct me if I'm wrong) and wouldn't be classed as underage.

    definitely not lmao they should be thrown in jail for life, or at least 40 years minimum. if you're a piece of **** and you scar someone permanently you should suffer the consequences sorry not sorry!!1!1

    Not to mention 21 years is one case. A lot of the times sex offenders get way less, just look at all those college athletes (and pro athletes who weren't even punished at all). I don't even think 21 years is enough but in most cases offenders don't even get near that and that needs to change.

    Also "legal ages" aside 16 year olds are still children idfc if it's legal there, that doesn't make it alright

Message: Chief Justice Roberts, President Carter, President Clinton, President Bush, President Obama, fellow Americans, and people of the world: Thank you.
We, the citizens of America, are now joined in a great national effort to rebuild our country and to restore its promise for all of our people.
Together, we will determine the course of America and the world for years to come.
We will face challenges. We will confront hardships. But we will get the job done.
Every four years, we gather on these steps to carry out the orderly and peaceful transfer of power, and we are grateful to President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama for their gracious aid throughout this transition. They have been magnificent.
Today's ceremony, however, has very special meaning. Because today we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another, or from one party to another -- but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C. and giving it back to you, the American People.
For too long, a small group in our nation's Capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have borne the cost. Washington flourished -- but the people did not share in its wealth. Politicians prospered -- but the jobs left, and the factories closed.
The establishment protected itself, but not the citizens of our country. Their victories have not been your victories; their triumphs have not been your triumphs; and while they celebrated in our nation's capital, there was little to celebrate for struggling families all across our land.
That all changes -- starting right here, and right now, because this moment is your moment: it belongs to you.
It belongs to everyone gathered here today and everyone watching all across America. This is your day. This is your celebration. And this, the United States of America, is your country.
What truly matters is not which party controls our government, but whether our government is controlled by the people. January 20th 2017, will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again. The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer.
Everyone is listening to you now.
You came by the tens of millions to become part of a historic movement the likes of which the world has never seen before. At the center of this movement is a crucial conviction: that a nation exists to serve its citizens.
Americans want great schools for their children, safe neighborhoods for their families, and good jobs for themselves. These are the just and reasonable demands of a righteous public.
But for too many of our citizens, a different reality exists: Mothers and children trapped in poverty in our inner cities; rusted-out factories scattered like tombstones across the landscape of our nation; an education system flush with cash, but which leaves our young and beautiful students deprived of knowledge; and the crime and gangs and drugs that have stolen too many lives and robbed our country of so much unrealized potential.
This American carnage stops right here and stops right now.
We are one nation -- and their pain is our pain. Their dreams are our dreams; and their success will be our success. We share one heart, one home, and one glorious destiny.
The oath of office I take today is an oath of allegiance to all Americans.
For many decades, we've enriched foreign industry at the expense of American industry; subsidized the armies of other countries while allowing for the very sad depletion of our military; we've defended other nation's borders while refusing to defend our own; and spent trillions of dollars overseas while America's infrastructure has fallen into disrepair and decay.
We've made other countries rich while the wealth, strength, and confidence of our country has disappeared over the horizon.
One by one, the factories shuttered and left our shores, with not even a thought about the millions upon millions of American workers left behind.
The wealth of our middle class has been ripped from their homes and then redistributed across the entire world.
But that is the past. And now we are looking only to the future. We assembled here today are issuing a new decree to be heard in every city, in every foreign capital, and in every hall of power.
From this day forward, a new vision will govern our land.
From this moment on, it's going to be America First.
Every decision on trade, on taxes, on immigration, on foreign affairs, will be made to benefit American workers and American families. We must protect our borders from the ravages of other countries making our products, stealing our companies, and destroying our jobs. Protection will lead to great prosperity and strength.
I will fight for you with every breath in my body -- and I will never, ever let you down.
America will start winning again, winning like never before.
We will bring back our jobs. We will bring back our borders. We will bring back our wealth. And we will bring back our dreams.
We will build new roads, and highways, and bridges, and airports, and tunnels, and railways all across our wonderful nation.
We will get our people off of welfare and back to work -- rebuilding our country with American hands and American labor.
We will follow two simple rules: Buy American and hire American.
We will seek friendship and goodwill with the nations of the world -- but we do so with the understanding that it is the right of all nations to put their own interests first.
We do not seek to impose our way of life on anyone, but rather to let it shine as an example for everyone to follow.
We will reinforce old alliances and form new ones -- and unite the civilized world against radical Islamic terrorism, which we will eradicate completely from the face of the Earth.
At the bedrock of our politics will be a total allegiance to the United States of America, and through our loyalty to our country, we will rediscover our loyalty to each other.
When you open your heart to patriotism, there is no room for prejudice. The Bible tells us, "How good and pleasant it is when God's people live together in unity."
We must speak our minds openly, debate our disagreements honestly, but always pursue solidarity.
When America is united, America is totally unstoppable.
There should be no fear -- we are protected, and we will always be protected.
We will be protected by the great men and women of our military and law enforcement and, most importantly, we are protected by God.
Finally, we must think big and dream even bigger.
In America, we understand that a nation is only living as long as it is striving.
We will no longer accept politicians who are all talk and no action -- constantly complaining but never doing anything about it.
The time for empty talk is over. Now arrives the hour of action.
Do not let anyone tell you it cannot be done. No challenge can match the heart and fight and spirit of America.
We will not fail. Our country will thrive and prosper again.
We stand at the birth of a new millennium, ready to unlock the mysteries of space, to free the Earth from the miseries of disease, and to harness the energies, industries and technologies of tomorrow.
A new national pride will stir our souls, lift our sights, and heal our divisions.
It is time to remember that old wisdom our soldiers will never forget: that whether we are black or brown or white, we all bleed the same red blood of patriots, we all enjoy the same glorious freedoms, and we all salute the same great American Flag.
And whether a child is born in the urban sprawl of Detroit or the windswept plains of Nebraska, they look up at the same night sky, they fill their heart with the same dreams, and they are infused with the breath of life by the same almighty Creator.
So to all Americans, in every city near and far, small and large, from mountain to mountain, and from ocean to ocean, hear these words:
You will never be ignored again.
Your voice, your hopes, and your dreams will define our American destiny. And your courage and goodness and love will forever guide us along the way.
Together, We will make America strong again.
We will make wealthy again.
We will make America proud again.
We will make America safe again.
And yes, together, we will make America great again. Thank you. God bless you. And God bless America.
    The punishment definitely needs to be more severe in the United States. Regardless of gender, race, wealth, power, et cetera. The punishment's need to be non-partisan.

    I'm sure you've all heard of Brock Turner the Stanford kid but if you haven't he got like 3 months for raping someone, which to me is absolutely preposterous. I am absolutely disgusted by sex offenders and personally think they deserve life in prison, but I know that isn't exactly plausible. 21 years is not nearly long enough, but at least it's 21 years - but 3 months is just ridiculous

    In America, it's 30 years. I have a cousin in jail, I don't know if it was for that or not, but I remember my step-uncle saying: "For a sex offender it's 30 years."

    But, I will agree that this is a nasty act. Though I do not have a lot of knowledge on it, I have enough basic knowledge to understand.

    Yes I believe that the sentence needs to be harsher, but it seems to vary case to case
    ****ing hell. I'm so sorry that happened to you. There really needs to be more respect for victims of sexual abuse and violence. It just isn't right.
    And remember that bad times...
    are just times that are bad.
