ON MY SOAPBOX...AGAIN

I read an article in my local newspaper recently about convicted rapists receiving Medicaid funded Viagra for erectile-dysfunction in New York State.
Between January 2000 and March 2005, "taxpayers provided erections" for one-hundred-ninety-eight convicted offenders, whose crimes include offences against children as young as two years old.
Mary Kahn, spokeswoman for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services said, "Now that this has been brought to our attention we will certainly see what we can do administratively, if anything."
This report is only concerning Viagra. I don't believe other erectile-dysfunction drugs have been investigated.

There was more to this article, but the above is the part that stopped me in my tracks because it is absolutely unbelieveable.
A large majority of sex offenders refuse treatment (it's their right). Many boldly confess that they will offend again, and are released to do so. Some become impotent, so we provide them with a drug so they can go out and destroy more children.
You know what, this really ticks me off!

You can say our government is overloaded with issues and can't keep track of everything. I disagree. That's what they get paid billions to do.
Our children and babies should be a priority in every sense of the word. They are helpless today but will lead our country in the future. We owe them safety from predators at the very least. If a wild animal was about to destroy a child, I know what I'd do.

Offenders have been getting off too easy. Consequences for their crimes are not much more than a hand slap. They have no morals, and no mercy. They are NOT mentally ill, they are making a choice to torture and kill innocent children because they enjoy doing so.

We are fighting terrorists all over the world.
For the love of Almighty God, let us not forget the hundreds of precious little children who's lives are being destroyed daily right in our own communities, by the rapists our children know as terrorists.
We must take a stronger stand against this hateful act.
We must make the punishment fit the crime.

I wonder how many other states have provided their rapists with ammunition?
God save the children

Another side to this is the many law abiding citizens who cannot afford necessary medications and cannot get them through Medicade. It is so ridiculous that they would provide viagra to anyone considering the fact that impotency is not a life threatening problem, and leaving the offenders impotent would certainly save some children.
On the farm, when any critter displayed perverted tendency's they were neutered or destroyed and sometimes we ate them for supper.
Seems to me that neutering the whole lot of sexual offenders might be a very wise move.
If that doesn't stop them, there is another alternative.
