I have little sympathy for paedophiles. I think they should be punished in the same way a Roamn Patricide was punished. The criminal is stripped naked then made to stand with a foot each on two pedestals placed a couple feet apart as to expose every part of thier body. They were then whipped until there was no difference between flesh and blood on their body. The crowd was free to throw stones at the criminal and about anything they wanted really.
Afterthey were completely whipped they took them and put them in a sack with a snake, a chicken and a dog. This was to symbolize the reverse of being born. Thus un-born since they had taken the life of the one that gave life to them, it was seen as fit punishment. After they were in the bag with the other animals they would sow the bag shut and then chuck it in the Tiber.

“On the night Mr Dixon died, staff had to balance the safety of themselves with that of a serial, violent offender. Staff safety is paramount, and officers made the right decision at the time when unlocking his cell.” Read more »
