Dutch court stops paedophile prosecution

A Dutch court has ruled that the paedophile support group, , cannot be prosecuted. The Public Prosecutor’s office recently came to the same conclusion.

The latest case for prosecution was brought by a couple whose 3-year-old daughter was systematically sexually abused by a neighbour. The abuser got all kinds of tips from the group's website about how to avoid being detected.

MPs have reacted with dismay at the ruling. “It’s a disappointing verdict, but I understand that the judge had to come to this conclusion,” says one.

Justice Minister Ivo Opstelten says he is waiting for the result of research by Public Prosecutor’s office into the possibility of launching a civil procedure against . He expects to be able to decide on what steps to take in December.

    This sends a clear message to these sick individuals that what they are doing is good and they can continue what they do to children. What happened to the article from 2 weeks back that The Netherlands was the best country to live in? How could a country be so soft to such sick men who need not only help but need to be locked up away from a civil society? Shame on The Netherlands!!! Shame on them! With all the women here spawning out children do u think they would care about them?

    What about chemical castration? Killing someone seems extreme. I couldn't sleep at night if I was responsible for killing someobe, even if they molested one of my kids.

    There is no rehab or cure for pedophiles.

    We routinely execute animals for merely showing a proclivity for hurting a child.

    Why do we have a lesser standard for those that "systematically sexually abused" a child?

    Because humans are not animals?

    I don't count anyone who "systematically sexually abused" a child as a human.

    I'll push the injector or pull the switch and sleep very well at night.
