Slippery Slope? Pedophile Spared Jail Time. So He Can Have Children?!
There are a few things everybody can agree on. One of them is that pedophiles and kids shouldn't go together. Because ew. Seems simple enough, even though Salon.com is a bit behind the curve on that one (see He's Back! Far Left Salon Asking For Sympathy for This Sick Pedophile... Again). Still, for most of us with functioning consciences, pedophiles and children are a big no no. But this British judge didn't get the memo. He lightened the sentence of a pedophile, Richard Arrowsmith, so he could start a family. Sometimes you just can't write this stuff.
Word on the street is Arrowsmith is a real lover of kids.
A paedophile who downloaded a vast stash of obscene pictures of children has been spared jail - so he can become a dad. Richard Arrowsmith was found to have a staggering 137,000 pictures and 4,336 videos of child abuse that he collected for four years and faced up to five years in prison.
Sentencing Arrowsmith to 10 months in prison, suspended for two years, Recorder Martin Butterworth said: "You are 41 years old, with no previous convictions. I am taking into consideration your previous good character, you have a wife who supports you, a steady employment and your hopes to start a family in the near future."
We don't know the political leaning of this judge, but he seems a bit on the "tolerant" side. Second chances and whatnot. Because criminals have feelings too! Or something...
The perv collected a huge stash of "extreme" images over the course of four years, but no matter. Still qualifies as dad material, according to Judge Butterworth. I bet Mrs. Butterworth is disappointed in her husband's choice. And Aunt Jemima too. Those future kids will have a lot to look forward too... But thinking of the unborn children? Not exactly leftists' strong suit.
This is what real life tolerance looks like. Men like Arrowsmith are let free, Hillary Clinton runs for president, Anthony Weiener sends text messages to teen girls. But who am I to judge? According to the rules of leftism, nobody gets to judge. Love is love, you bigot. Pedophilia is simply a branch of sexuality, to be understood and not demonized (see No, Salon.com, I Don't Need to 'Understand' the Plight of Pedophiles). You know, like polygamy or incest. Progress.
Speaking of sexuality...
