Punishment for Sex Offenders

Posted on April 3, 2013 at 12:23 PM

What is the proper punishment for a sex offender after being released from prison? Most people think that the punishment is prison...and a permanent listing on the National Sex Offender Registry. Apparently, that's not all. It turns out that some believe that there should be further punishment for these types of crimes--death.

In June 2012, Patrick Drum, a Washington man, shot and killed two registered sex offenders despite the fact that they had been imprisoned and paroled for their crimes and listed on the National Sex Offender Registry. Drum killed his housemate, 28 year-old Gary Lee Blanton, on June 2nd and then killed Jerry Wayne Ray, 57, the next day.

During Drum's sentencing, Blanton's wife gave a tearful statement about the loss of her husband and children's father that included shaming Drum for "sit[ting] here smiling." According to her, Blanton was registered as a sex offender after having sex with a high school freshmen when he was a high school senior. She added that, since the incident, she has been harassed by Drum's supporters. The father of Ray, who was convicted for a child rape, was also there to give a weepy testimony.

Just before his sentencing, Drum gave a statement were he apologized for the "collateral damage" that his actions caused. However, he was unapologetic and quite smug about the direct impact of his actions stating, "As far as the men themselves, actions speak louder than words." 

He was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole for two counts of first degree murder. However, it is clear that his actions have divided people. As he left the courtroom, one unseen courtroom member yelled, "Good bless you," while another shouted, "See you in hell, f*****."

The psychology of punishment is quite involved. Currently, we only have one method for punishing sex offenders; however, this method isn't punishment for some. With that being said, is our next move to individually decide how criminals with these types of pasts should be further punished? Isn't that what our legal system is for?

What do you think about Drum's actions?

Hi, you have highlighted a very sensitive issue that occurs on daily basis across the globe. Yet I believe instead of shooting them we must integrate the sex offenders into society because that’s the best course of action we could take. In that way we can minimize this crime.
