Um, hello, BASED DEPARTMENT?
This is how a serious country deals with horrific monsters:
Russia is to toughen its child sex laws this month to automatically jail repeat paedophiles for life in harsh polar prisons.
Monsters who sexually abuse children should serve their sentences in hard labour penal colonies in the Arctic, where they could be forced to work in Siberian mines, the country’s parliamentary speaker said.
The new legislation is being pushed through after a horrific case this week of a girl, five, who was abducted by a recidivist paedophile and his lover, then raped and stabbed to death.
Veronika Nikolayeva had been playing near her mother’s workplace in Kostroma, and a video showed how she was snatched before being abused.
The helpless girl ‘struggled and fought back’ but passersby did not pay attention to her distress – and the men took her to their hostel.
They should find out who those “passerby” were and send them to the Arctic penal colony as well.
Her corpse was later found in a duffle bag as the suspects, named Denis Gerasimov, 44, and Vadim Belyakov, 24, planned to dispose of her body.
Both men confessed on video to her murder.
Parliamentary speaker Vyacheslav Volodin, a close ally of Vladimir Putin, said the ‘terrible tragedy’ of Veronika’s abuse and death showed the urgency of toughening laws.
‘One of the detained men turned out to be a formerly convicted paedophile,’ he said.
‘Let’s do everything for the law on life sentences for paedophiles to be adopted in January.’
He backed calls for even tougher measures by sending all paedophiles to polar regions to serve their sentence.
‘Those convicted for such crimes should serve life sentences in the harshest conditions – in the extreme north (of Russia) or in mines.
‘These bastards should undergo the hardest labour, so they remember the crimes they committed every day – and regret them.’
They ‘cannot be called human’, he said.
Imagine living in a country where the politicians are actually outraged by pedophilia.
Alexander Khinstein, an influential MP in the main pro-Putin United Russia party, said: ‘It is necessary to adopt our bill on life punishment for paedophile-rapists as soon as possible.’
All sex attackers released from jail should wear electronic tags, he said.
Maria Lvova-Belova, Putin’s commissioner for children’s rights, warned that sex attacks on children and adolescents have risen 79 per cent in the past eight years.
In this week’s case, Gerasimov had been released from a sex crime conviction in March.
As the girl’s body was removed from the suspects’ hostel, a mob of locals demanded to be allowed to lynch the suspects.
That’s how it should be.
Say what you want about Russia, but they at least have their priorities in order when it comes to child sex predators.
In America, we give child sex predators control of the government.
