"I don't know why they keep letting those guys out." Because THE LAW SAYS THEY HAVE TO. If you want rapists to be locked up for the rest of their lives, then start a campaign to change the law. But you can't just simply demand that the courts ignore the law, because one day it might be you - or your kid - in the defendant's chair, and you don't want a judge who will say, "I know the law says the penalty for this minor offense is 10 days in jail, but you look like a little punk to me, so...screw the law, you're getting five years!"
Many European countries allow rapists and pedophiles to lesser prison term in exchange of undergoing Chemical castration. In the US, these people are let out after their initial term and invariably they go back to their addiction of having sex with a child. Just as men are attracted to women, some men are attracted to other men and a small minority are attracted to Children. Unless this urge is repressed these people are likely to offend again. I really feel sorry for that 14 year old girl who was raped over 2 days. It will take her a long time to get over this. As a dad, I would never have sent my daughter with any man.
