Child Rapists Jerry Sandusky and Earl B. Bradley: Men Who Don't Deserve to Live

     Once they have been tried and convicted, and have exhausted their appeals, pedophiles should be executed. They don't deserve to live. We shouldn't have to feed them, dress them, provide them with health care, protect them from other inmates, or hear what they have to say about anything.

     These controlling, narcissistic, remorseless, and sadistic child abusers can not be rehabilitated. While they have learned to impersonate decent human beings, except for indignation and rage, these heartless criminals are as emotionally cold as machines. They are relentless in their obsession with child sex, and no pill or shot can stop them.

     Because many child rapists are intelligent, hardworking, successful, and superficially charming, we have to constantly remind ourselves of what is going on behind the pedophile's facade of respectability and decency. The fact that some of these perverts are excellent teachers, pediatricians, priests, or football coaches, is irrelevant. Moreover, our attention should not be diverted because a pedophile has friends in high places. Children most vulnerable to these sexual predators belong to parents who are either too naive, busy, stupid, or indifferent to keep an eye on adults who pay too much attention to their children.  Pedophiles also take advantage of co-workers who either protect them, or are afraid to stick their necks out and report their suspicions. Pedophiles also benefit from prosecutors who shy away from cases like this.

Jerry Sandusky

     Recently, convicted pedophile Jerry Sandusky told a reporter with the Associated Press that he was "distraught" over the penalties the NCAA has issued to Penn State's football program. I have three questions about this: Why is a journalist even talking to this child molester? What relevance does Sandusky's opinion have to anything? And who cares? If Jerry Sandusky were a real human being--one with empathy, self-awareness, and a conscience--he wouldn't make such an outrageous statement because he'd realize how most people would react to it. If the former football coach is "distraught" about anything, it should be what he did all those years to children. Sandusky doesn't give a crap about the lives he ruined, and I don't give a crap about Penn State football. Will this pervert ever shut up? And will people ever stop wringing their hands over the economic effect of the scandal on central Pennsylvania. (Today, in The New York Times, there is an article entitled, "College Town Built on Football, Fears Fallout From a Scandal. Give me a break.)

Earl B. Bradley

     In June 2011, a 58-year-old pediatrician from Lewes, Delaware named Earl B. Bradley was found guilty of raping, over a ten year period, 85 girls and one boy. All of his victims were between two and five-years old. Not only did the physician molest these toddlers, he video-taped himself doing it. When investigators, in December 2009, searched his pediatrics office, the officers found dozens of these tapes.

     At his trial, presented before a judge instead of a jury, Bradley's attorneys did not argue that he was innocent. Instead, they raised a procedural defense questioning the constitutionality of the police search of his office. The judge ruled the search constitutional, found the defendant guilty, and sentenced him to 14 life sentences plus 164 years.

    In August 2012, after spending a year in the prison library, Bradley sent a 15-page letter to the Delaware Supreme Court in which he asked the justices to take up the issue of the constitutionality of the office search that uncovered his child molestation sex tapes. In his appeal, Bradley did not deny raping 86 of his patients.

     A normal person, under these circumstances, wouldn't be capable of mustering up outrage over a supposedly unconstitutional search. This doctor, a pedophile who raped his patents, then billed their parents, referred to the police search of his office as an "assault" on his "basic and core privacy rights." Can you imagine what the parents of his victims are thinking right now?

     This is what I'm thinking: Every breath Earl B. Bradley takes in his cell at the state prison near Smyrna, Delaware is an affront to humanity. One of the strongest arguments for the death penalty is how it spares victims this kind of salt being rubbed into their wounds. Is the death sentence cruel and unusual punishment? In cases involving people like Jerry Sandusky and Earl B. Bradley, I hope so.
