As a teenager did I view them is the same way? Yes, but that's because I was full of anger because of what happened during that period of time. It's taken years to get that anger under control. I still take personal every time I see someone get caught on the news, but I no longer get panic attacks, flash backs, punching holes in walls when I see someone get caught. I think the justice system for this kind of crime is both deterrence and retribution. The tough laws have prevented most commercial content being sold, because the people who would do it for cash won't do it because of the tough punishments. But there are still people who freely trade it on the darkwebs. Those are the people who are the most danger. They're not doing it for some quick buck or two, but because they are truly pedophiles. When someone is convicted of this type of crime they're not just thrown in jail. They also have to go through rehabilitation programs to get their problems under control. So when they get out of jail they don't recommit the crime. For someone like the guy who committed a crime similar to mine (Kidnapping, Multiple counts of 1st degree sexual assault on a minor under 12, possession/distribution/manufacturing of child pornography), I think the punishment should be retribution/protect the citizens with the death penalty. You can't trust someone who committed a crime so horrific like that again. For other crimes less than that, it should be deterrence/retribution with jail time and rehabilitation programs.
