CBS News | Where Do Repeat Sex Offenders Go?

CBS News | Where Do Repeat Sex Offenders Go? | December 7, 2005 07:03:20: "Seventeen states have laws that allow holding sex offenders who have completed their prison terms. Governors in other states also have tried to use mental health laws to keep sex offenders in psychiatric hospitals once their prison terms end. ... The American Psychiatric Association has opposed civil commitment programs, saying government officials seem more intent on punishing sex offenders than treating them."

What are your thoughts? Should repeat sex offenders be locked up for good? Should they be listed on a national registry? Or should they be allowed to roam free and continue to prey on the innocent?

If you've been around here long, you know my thoughts. If not, you can find out here:
