I think that sex offenders are getting away with too much. I dont know if a life sentence is completley necassary but the sentence needs to be longer.

for more of my thoughts look at my last opening argument it's basically the same.

There are a number of problems with the debate as it was initially framed; the primary being that "sex offenders" is a very broad category and includes everyone from those arrested for public exposure all the way up to forced sexual assault.
