    If he’s doing it now, he’ll probably never stop. Lock that pervert up and let the boys behind the bars have him!

    That’s a horrible thing to wish on anyone, no matter what they’ve done. You obviously don’t understand juvenile sexual abuse. In almost all cases, these children committing offenses are only repeating what was done to them. They literally know no other way. That does not make it right nor does it mean he should not spend time in juvenile detention . But you should never wish sexual assault on anyone.
