I think if he is considered to have minimal risk of re-offending, he should be released.
The problem with that, as Aaron stated, is that the success rate on such drastic rehabilitation isn't exactly very good.
I mean you have to also believe that rapists should be locked up for the rest of their ifes right? What about people convicted of assault? Again, I think that the severity of this crime and those like it is key to why people think irrationaly about them.
The degree of the crime will certainly effect the way people view it, but it should also be taken into account when re-releasing someone into society. A rapist and an individual who assaults people is significantly different from someone who kills and eats parts of another human being.
Yes, but I view that neglect as symptomatic of the society we live in today.
That doesn't make it an alright excuse though.
And we should be making strides away from that, taking responsibility and moving forward. The whole crime and punishment aspect is only one part.
Of course it is, but it's impossible to please everyone in such circumstances.
I don;t have his file of course, but that would be highly irregular based on the information I have on him. He doesn't appear to fit that sociopathic mould at all.
The information that we all have on him? Ted Bundy didn't fit the sociopathic mould from what I remember reading about him, that didn't stop him from being a total **** up.
