At Least Corporate Frauds Don't Murder Children

Love him or hate him, Bill O'Reilly is the only pundit in the country leading the fight to lock away child sex offenders. Two nights ago on his FOX program The O'Reilly Factor Bill named every state and their governors that have weak laws on sexual predators, both red and blue; Republican and Democrat.

There's no reason why Jessica's Law isn't being passed in every state in the union. It's appropriate, fair and reasonable. You touch a child under the age of 10 and you go to prison for a minimum of 25 years. Do it again and you're gone for life.

Today the CEO of WorldCom, Bernard Ebbers, was sentenced to 25 years in prison for his part in the $11 billion accounting scam that ruined the portfolios of many employees. Inasmuch as one would like to see this creep get locked away, I'd rather he be walking the streets than a thug with a penchant for child molesting.

Twenty-five years for child molesters. No less.
