Do you believe that child molesters can be rehabilitated?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on April 1, 2005
“It’s so hard to define rehabilitation. I think morality plays too large a role in it, so it is difficult to give a yes or no answer. I guess it all depends on your point of view.”
“No, because history has shown that they don’t stop what they are doing wrong. As Lewis Carroll said, ‘Off with their heads!’”
“Only if we can make them wear a scarlet P on their chest.”
“I would have to say to leave that up to the powers that be. I guess institutionalization is the only tool we have to deal with someone that would do something that ridiculously wrong and totally unacceptable.”
