No, it's not groupthink. There's an important distinction between the person who commits the act, and the person who has psycological urges that can be supressed. Do I feel sorry for an adult who has sexual urges toward children, yet suppresses them? Yes. But once they've become a predator, I don't.
My thoughts exactly. It goes without saying that I feel no sympathy for a child molester. BUT....... oh the abuse this could lead to. Remember, some people classify "potential terrorist" as those who cite the Constitution in online article comments.
