Hit rapists hard! Women want tougher sentences for sex offenders

Wednesday, November 2, 2005

Growing cases of rape against women and children have sparked strong calls for longer and more stringent sentences for the guilty.
Gender expert and consultant, Dr. Glenda Simms said the impact of rape on a woman is so horrific that there can be no sympathy towards anyone who commits such an act.
Dr. Simms explained that some rapists are sent to prison, but when they are released back in the society, they repeat the offence.
Attorney-at-law Margarette MaCaulay said there is disparity in the sentences that criminals get in Jamaica and this is a cause for concern. She said that while some offenders get long sentences, others usually get "a tap on the wrist", especially when the act is classified as carnal abuse.
MaCaulay said she was trying to obtain guidelines on sentences around the Commonwealth to make sure similar trends are followed in Jamaica.
The Department of Corrections has reported since 2002, the shortest sentence for rape was four years and the longest, 25 years.

Yes they should be punished
Yes i agree that they should be punished, but unlike a lot of you i wouldn't give them life in prison or castrate them. People do wrong and the deserve a chance to make that wrong right and change there life. If you lock someone away forever in a place that does nothing to change who they are you're not helping them at all.Most people that spend time in jail come out a better crimal than they where before they went in. These men need help and should get it. Also a lot of you are talk like their are a lot of men running around around raping every women the come cross. Yes their are some, but most attacks are with someone that you know and might even trust.

i don't kno whas goin on
i don't kno wha gwaan inna j.a. but i kno that as a victim myself they should investigate thoroughly. i mean theres times when a gal cry rape no body neva rape her she give it but fi mek har look good she tell lie an say a rape. so investigation and then proper punishment. If it show di man a rape di oohman den give di pussy good long sentence and afta dat rehabilitate dem but mek sure se dem nah have any contact wid di victim. and mek it so dat him can't gwan back a di same place again. mek sure him get evaluated before dem mek him come out too. so yuh kno its not a problem in his head so if him commit da crime again you'll kno him need maximum sentence den cau nothin nah wrong wid him.

Send Them to jail, but rehabilitate them
I am a woman and a mother so if someone was to touch my daughter I would hope God would give me the strength not to end up next to the rapist in jail and hell. I know that these people are sick, they do have a mental illness, they need help. First and foremost they need to be off the streets. It's not these peoples fault that they come out and do it again it's the prison system, they need to be rehabilitating these criminals instead of letting them back on the streets because of jails being overcrowded or they just don't give a fuck about people who aint white.

i think that these rapists should be castrate and then put into prison for at least 50yrs.
some people might thing that this is cruel but when you think about it, it is not. imagine someone close, or a family member or even you getting rape against your will, brutally force on to. that could leave a scar for yrs to get heal and for you to get over it.
so why should these menace of society get just a couple yrs or months in prison? further more, putting them in prison cell wont solve the problem entirely that is just a small punishment for them. castrate them, take away thier manhood so they will know what it feel like to be robbed of something of importance.
if i was been rape this will surely satisfied me, knowing that, that person wont be allowed to do it again. its either that or they kill him.

don't say it if he didn't do it
i do have brothers an they can rape but if some one spend up to 25 year's in jail when they get out they wont have a house a woman or any thing so they will just rape so they can go back to jail an live for free.

rape is bad but it depens
most people would say lock them throw away the key but we all have brothers an sons i know if it was their sons they would say the girl is not speaking the truth because i know people who say they got rape when they had sex freely

Mek Dem Suffa
Me personally, I think that these rapest should suffer. The minimum years should be 35 years and the maximum life. If the offender is released, I think that man should lose his manhood,LITERALLY. Dem need fi chop off dem taily..Cut it off so they don't have to rape another woman again. Also, it is a constant reminder of what they have done.Well that's just my personaly opinion.

i think the shortest sentence should be 25 years instead of 4 and the maximum should be life in prison. these men need to realize that we women have pride and for them to take that away from us is just wrong and disgusting.

Put them in prison!!
Ok.....I feel that they should be put in prison so that they can get raped as well and see how it feels to take away and violate the one thing that women cherish the most....DIGNITY!!!!...Putting them back on the street is causing more harm that good....let them suffer!!

I think that persons convicted of rape should be penalized to the fullest extent of the law. Execution, is what i feel can be the resolution to lots of the crime.

rapist do need life in prison because i know if anyone ever touches a family member of mine or any of my children i know he will be buried in my back yard. these are some sick people we are dealin with here. before people like them would go to a worthless prostitute they would rather take away someones pride. so i say yes make them rot in jail and throw away the key

rapist need life in prison
i think anyone accused of raping someone should face the death penalty but for the sake of being human they should get life in prison because once out on the street they'll do it again so keep them locked up for the safty of our women and children

I feel that anyone acused of rape should be beaten with the cat nine tail, the reason why they come out of jail and rape again is because they eating and sleeping and ain't going through nothing tough in jail, so jail becomes the 'second home'. and as for the sentence they should be given 30 years and up, not no 4-5 years.

harder sentences on rape offenders
The act of rape should be considered just as immoral as taking someone's life. The person who chooses to rape someone has just killed one's dignity and self esteem, for that person to simply just get over or ignore it. At the same time the psychological affects from this gruesome act inhibits one to carry on with life without feeling a sense of fear and torment; knowing that this person who violated you will be free in a few years. Therefore i feel that the justice system should show that this is a serious crime that deserves harsh punishment without mercy.
